Adirondacks Otter Chalet

Sleeping Accommodations: 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

Bedding Information: 2 Queens. 5 Queen Futons. 1 Queen Sofa Sleeper

A waterfront chalet on the edge of the 50 acre Adirondack Wildlife Refuge, Otter Chalet has 2 large bedrooms, 3 full baths, a sleeping dorm with 3 thick and comfortable queen-sized futons and 40" HDTV Satellite TV, a sleeping loft with the same comfortable queen futon, a 42" HDTV Flat Screen TV in the family room, and great views of Whiteface Mountain and the Ausable River. Otter Chalet can comfortably sleep 12.

At Otter Chalet, the kids can safely camp outside, and draw their sleeping bags up to a roaring campfire, or camp inside in the dorm room, where they can play air hockey, or watch Satellite TV. Log Cabin Wet Sauna, hot tub, DVD, VCR, stereo, high-speed wireless internet, microwave, barbecue, dishwasher, washer and dryer, and linens will help make Otter Chalet a convenient and hassle free vacation.

Folks who stay at Otter Chalet may walk over and visit us at the Adirondack Wildlife Refuge and Rehabilitation Center on Lake Everest, at, where the family can meet and learn all about wolves, coywolves, bobcats, arctic and red foxes, coyote, and non-releasable, educational birds of prey, such as Bald Eagle, Osprey, Great Horned Owls, Barred Owls, Screech Owls, Barn Owl, Short-eared owls, Red-Tailed Hawks. Broad-winged hawks, Swainsons Hawks, Rough-Legged Hawks, Goshawks, Peregrine Falcons, Merlins, Turkey Vultures and Ravens. In addition, in season, guests may use our canoes and kayaks on Lake Everest, and walk-ski-snowshoe the hiking trail, or accompany us on the wolf walk through the refuge.

Otter Chalet has its own canoes and kayaks for use on Lake Everest. Otter Chalet enjoys unimpeded views of Whiteface, Esther, Lookout and Marble Mountains, while the Refuge includes an official New York State DEC Fishing Preserve within its Northern boundary, a guided, wildlife refuge hiking trail suitable for kids and dogs, and a lovely Adirondack meadow, suitable for picnics or snow football, surrounded by towering white pines. Skiiers are 3 miles driving from Whiteface, while the restaurants and Olympic attractions of lake Placid are 12 miles away through the Wilmington notch, one of America's most beautiful country roads.

Canoe or kayak up and down the beautiful Ausable River, swim, fish for your dinner, or just sit back and observe as the local natural inhabitants play, browse, pursue and earn survival. We’ve seen Eagle, Hawk, Owl, Osprey, Loon, Heron, Merganser, Hummingbird, Pileated Woodpecker, Ermine, Bobcat, Fox, Coyote, Black Bear, Mink, Beaver, Porcupine, Deer, and Otter on Lodge property, but the only people you'll see are folks paddling by in canoes and kayaks. Canoe into shallow water sloughs and channels on both sides of the river, where your kids will delight in seeing beaver, otter, frogs, painted turtles and herons, just as they'll love listening to our wolves melodious howling at dawn and dusk. In the evening, relax around the campfire outside, take in the stars, listen to the Wilmington Riverside rock & country concerts every Thursday night within 2 miles of the Lodge, or go into Lake Placid for dining and entertainment. This is a place to get away from it all, to rebuild, regroup, and face your busy lives with a renewed perspective. For those of you who are new to the Adirondacks, prepare to discover what we learned long ago (and we’ve hiked in parks all over the US, Canada and Alaska). There is no lovelier place in the world to vacation than the Adirondack Mountains: the Adirondacks has it all. NY State Sales Tax (7.75%) & a non-refundable $60 Damage Protection Policy apply.
