Ausable Camp is nestled in a beautiful location. Mountain views, surrounded by forest where you can enjoy watching deer, coyote, birds and butterflies. Also the Ausable River runs in front of the property where you can take a refreshing dip in the river.
The cabin truly was a home away from home. Very clean and with comfortable common areas. Linens, towels, bathroom amenities are all provided. The added bonus was the washer and dryer and wifi. Also the kitchen fully stocked with all your cooking needs and barbecue needs.
The master bedroom had a very large window where at night you could watch the stars. It had a large walk-in closet.
We just went about everywhere including Vermont via ferry. Some of our favorite adventures were the bobsled run where we got to ride down the mile track and hit 58mph. Also the extreme tubing experience where one family member hit 62pmh!! Both of these are available at the Lake Placid Olympic Center. My son also summit-ed two of the 46ers, the rest of us got about a mile away, Regardless had a wonderful time experiencing Adirondack mountain hiking. The staff that supports the trails are so helpful and knowledgeable about the hikes. Before we attempted we stopped at the Loj and got feedback on how to prepare and the best peaks to attempt as novices to the Adirondacks.
The Ausable Chasm was also a lot of fun, we did the hike and float tripe which included some history of the chasm.
Annie P provides a wealth of information of what to do in the local area before you arrive and also made suggestions while we were there of things to do. The cabin had a wealth of travel guides along with a book of additional things to do in the area. This really added to the enjoyment of the stay. Both her and her husband were very responsive to any questions and made sure we were having a good time during our stay. Thanks Annie!!!!

Annie's cottage is wonderful. Close to Lake placid, with the Ausable River flowing right next to the cottage and the whiteface mountains so close by, it is the perfect place to be. Its not more than a 20min drive to each of these locations.
The cottage itself is located in picturesque valley with backdrop of the mountains. While the view was spectacular, the night sky was even more so. The porch that runs all around the front of the cottage and the open deck at the back are the perfect viewing points. My little niece had a wonderful time running around the vast open space all around the house. The interiors of the home itself is very thoughtfully done- updated and sparkly clean and very well stocked. It has an open layout so we had fun evenings chatting and preparing our meals together and our breakfasts were on the deck just off the kitchen soaking up the sun with the backdrop of the trees and the mountains.
All in all we had a wonderful family vacation in Annie's cottage and it was very difficult to say goodbye. I waiting for my next vacation there.
Was a nice relaxing place to stay. Had all the amenities and some. Highly recommended. Bring binoculars to enjoy the local wildlife in the meadows.
I was at the Ausable camp in July 2016, for 3 days...it was a memorable stay. We could have planned for couple more days of stay, unfortunately, I had to return to work.
The highlight of our 3-day trip was our stay at the cottage - very private, yet easily accessible from most attractions.
My 6 year old kid had fun too...huge meadow surrounding the cottage, she loved playing there that she did not want to leave.
The kitchen had almost everything...well equipped and clean. The furniture were nice (especially the couch in the living room). What I like the most is that there is so many glass windows in the living room...that when you sit on the couch with the window blinds unleashed, you almost feel like sitting on the meadow.
I would love to plan another vacation to Adirondacks soon (a lengthy one this time) and that's mainly to enjoy the stay at this cottage. The owner (Annie) was so nice and kind. She briefly visited us on the first day...just to share some maps, info. on the nearby attractions and ensure we were all set for the fun.
It was, on the whole, a very memorable stay.
The cottage is most lovely in great location, very well equipped with everything you need and the owner is very nice and helpful. We will recommend our friends...
