About the property

Accommodations: 3 Bedrooms, Sleeps 6

Seclusion, Privacy and a Million Dollar View!

Perfect for honeymooners!

Juniper Hill Lodge is perched on a steep incline with a magnificent view of Whiteface Mountain (4,867'), the fifth highest in New York. You won't see houses, or power lines, or roads, just the stunning High Peaks of the Adirondack Mountains laid out before you..

At night it's a star gazer's paradise! The high altitude, low population and huge deck make this one of the best places to take in the heavens. Magnificent!.

Savor a good long soak in the large, heated Jacuzzi whirlpool tub which easily accommodates two. mmmmmm!...

Enjoy the Outdoor Wood-Fired Sauna! Easy to use, Amazing for relaxing after a day on the slopes!

Outdoor Fire Pit and the hammock. Hike the miles of trails right out the back door.

With a total of nine rooms, Juniper Hill Lodge provides spacious accommodations for 5 people with its 2 full bedrooms, loft sleeping area, 1 1/2 baths, gourmet kitchen, dining and living room

Enjoy Cooking?: The kitchen is very well equipped for cooking any of your favorite dishes. The knives are sharp, the pans are heavy restaurant-quality. There's a Kitchen Aid mixer, all sorts of baking pans, pie tins and muffin trays. There's even a Waffle Maker and coffee grinder for your lazy mornings! And, you'll be cooking on a gas range of course.

The kitchen sink is a big and extra deep-- large enough to brine a turkey in. And the kitchen island is a huge flat working surface made of Adirondack Granite from the local garnet mines. We love it!

Clean up is no problem using the large capacity super quiet dishwasher.

Skiing at Whiteface: Whiteface Mountain--Greatest Vertical Drop in the East! Juniper Hill Loj is 1 mile away from the entrance! The mountain is so close (see the pictures!) that we use our walkie-talkies to communicate with the kids when they are skiing! You'll never fight traffic through the notch to make it in time for the first powder of the morning! And, Lake Placid is only 10 miles away--so, after a day of skiing, a fine evening out is very close by!

Ironman Lake Placid: We love IronMan! The house is in a great spot for it being a mile from the bike course. We usually watch the race at the out-and-back in Wilmington which is just a mile away. Remember, at the out-and-back you can stay in one place and see your Ironman 4 times on the bike loop! Parking there is really easy and you don't have to travel on the bike loop to see the race. Since the house is not directly on the bike route there are easy options for traveling either direction towards Keene or Lake Placid--at any time of day. Wilmington is a great, central location to spend your Ironman week--just a bit beyond the chaos of Lake Placid, Very easy to get around on race-day for your cheering squad. Book it now!

Juniper Hill Home

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely. Amazing views. Super kitchen and bathroom. Enjoyed the sauna. Kids loved the piano and also the loft area because of tv and computer. We were a bit nervous about all the pottery up there...... So easy to knock over.... No accidents fortunately.

The lamp in the kids room next to the lego underneath the bed is not working.....

The bedrooms are a bit small and makes it tough for luggage. The area near the stove is helpful for extra stuff. The stove was not needed - surprisingly. When we used it, the temp got too hot in the bedrooms.

Thanks again for letting us stay. We would come back again.

Hope our comments are helpful.

We had a 3 generation get-together over Easter with our 2 kids and their 2 grandparents. Sleeping arrangements were just fine and the woodburning stove worked perfectly according to the detailed instructions provided.

Great rustic space with plenty of architectural interest and personality. Amazing views and lots of amenities exactly as described in the listing. The place is clearly well loved and used by the owners and feels quite like being invited to borrow a friend's cottage.

There are design details that look like a serious labor of love and detailed handicraft and which defy description - You just have to see it yourself. Suffice to say you won't believe all the beautiful things one can do with birch bark.

There are little notes all over the place and instructions for everything. Lots of linen and clean towels. Soap dispensers are stocked with the best smelling soap ever ("Winter Forest" from Williams Sonoma - Noted).

The kitchen is very well equipped and the large island with seating is great for social cooking over a glass of wine.

This is the second time I've stayed here and both times Robert was an absolute pleasure to deal with. I can't say enough - We look forward to our next visit!

Secluded Artsy Adirondack Home with Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

We booked the Juniper Holl Loj for our honeymoon and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The property is private and nestled among the trees. It's an easy drive to Lake Placid and into Wilmington. We loved the quirky rustic charm of this Adirondack home and found lots of places to relax from the amazing second-level deck to the hammock and firepit. Loved the big open kitchen that had everything a cook could need. The queen bed on the first level was very comfortable. We also enjoyed all the fun reading material in the living room and in the loft library. I could go on and on, but we really had a great experience here. The jacuzzi tub/shower was a little tricky to use as a shower, but it's just part of the unique experience :) Booking with Robert was easy and not only did he send detailed instructions and directions, but he also sent a great list of suggested restaurants and things to do!!

Pretty relax spot, incredible view!

  • 4 of 5

Really good experience from booking to the end of our stay. Clean and very comfortable place, we didnt miss anything, the chalet is very well equipped. Beds are comfortable and the mezzanine with futon is perfect for a couple.

The view is amazing, terrace is enjoyable and the area is very quiet.

Would defenetly come back and recommand.

We had a great family time in the Adirondacks.

  • 3 of 5

The property was nice and we enjoyed our stay, however we would not stay there again for a couple reasons. The property was listed as a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, however when we arrived and looked at the property it was 2 bedroom and 1 1/2 bath. Had it been advertised properly, we wouldn't have chosen location.

There was no air conditioning, which we were aware of and for the most part the basement was cool, however in the loft or "3rd bedroom", 2 of our children slept in 88 degree temperatures.

The property is nice and the fire pit was a great place for family time and making s'mores. Plenty of cut wood and kindling. They have a hammock and chair/swing which was nice to relax and enjoy the summer breeze.

Again, a nice property, but we would've chose another location had we known that the property only had 1 shower and 2 bedrooms

Beautiful home, amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

The home was well stocked, clean and comfortable. It is in a great location not far from Keene or Lake Placid which worked well for us since we do a lot of hiking.
