old Adirondack cabin with dutch doors and casement windows, Deep
Woods Cabin has four bedrooms, 1 1/2 baths, a breezy
and bug-free wrap-around screened-in porch, a stone fireplace, an
kitchen with a cozy old-fashioned wood stove (as well as a modern
monitor heat, a spacious garage with work shop, and a
washer-dryer. Beautiful gardens erupt in Springtime on the 2.8 acre
plot, and nature
responds with fireflys, hummingbirds and pileated woodpeckers.
Children can lay out their sleeping bags on the screened-in porch, and thrill to the nightly concert of song birds, accompanied by light shows of fireflys, and the spooky calls of owls, bobcats and other woodlands critters.
Serious hikers are within easy range of High Peaks Trails, and the high peaks towns of Wilmington, Jay and Lake Placid offer nightly summer activities for young and old alike, everything from plays, concerts and art exhibits to fireworks and blue-grass/ rock and country bands under the stars.
Deep Woods Cabin has a successful vacation rental track record, grossing $22,000 to $25,000 for each of the last three years, and, if purchased as a second home, may be able to cover new owner's expenses, depending on size of mortgage. Go to www.adirondackholiday.com.
The roof is 12 years old. We don't know the size of the concrete septic, but it has performed well, using a biological agent which breaks down solid wate. Water heating, gas range and dryer use propane, while the heat monitors draw from the 250 gallon kerosene tank in front of the garage. Deep Woods Cabin has been winterized, and may be viewed during the 2005-2006 Winter season. A skirt has been built around the piered foundation to provide wind-protection for the water pipes, which have had Pipe Heating Cable with thermostats and insulation applied to them. As part of the process of winterizing, a well was dug to provide fresh water in the Spring of 2006.
The Public Fishing Access and the Adirondack Wildlife Refuge trail off Springfield Road is only 1/4 mile away, and the Public Beach at Lake Everest is one mile away. Formed by the damming of the West Branch of the Ausable River, at the bridge in Wilmington, Lake Everest features a public beach in Wilmington, on Route 86, about a 1/4 mile west of the four corners in Wilmington. The Park on Lake Everest provides a great place for younger kids who want to play in and around the water on a sandy bottom. At Lake Everest you can launch canoes and kayaks, fish for the famous Ausable River brown and rainbow trout, play volleyball, or just picnic under the lovely cedars that cluster around the shore. Lake Everest has rest rooms, barbecue pits, and country/ rock/ folk concerts every Thursday Evening in July and August.
