**This is a Shared Duplex-style functionality custom home** Please note this custom log home has a duplex functionality to it, with the main portion of the home open and private to guests, with their own separate private entrance. One wing of the home is used as the owner's walled-off and insulated quarters, which are accessed via a separate exterior entry door on the opposite side of the home. The owner may be residing there during your stay, but will fully respect your privacy and peace with little to no interaction besides a quick welcome hello or passing in the driveway, as there would be in any duplex housing scenario. There are no shared living spaces, ensuring the privacy of renters. The owner will not enter the main portion of the home used by guests, except for emergencies/safety. Please refer to the house blueprints shaded green/red (in the photos section), which depicts the house layout. The owner may be in the Adirondacks at this time of year and may be staying in the owner's/inlaw apartment section, but if he's gone then the complete property privacy should be considered an added free bonus. In 2013 the owner built a smaller log 2 bedroom chalet in Wilmington intended as a residence but turned into a full time vacation rental home (HomeAway/VRBO listing #3651607), this home is a hybrid solution to financing a new home and have a residence also. The owner Johnathan Esper is very well known and regarded throughout the Adirondack region through his landscape photography of the Adirondacks, as well as community ties, and has no criminal background. When there are known periods the owner is away in international travels, the pricing structure may automatically increase by ~10% to reflect the additional absolute privacy of the home and surrounding property.

Under some circumstances, the owner's apartment section totaling about 700 sq ft with additional bedroom, kitchen, bath, living room, log spiral staircase, and balcony) may be requested to be rented and opened up to the entire home to be included in the rental, which would incur an extra nightly surcharge of $150/night, at owner's discretion.

The owner loves the Adirondacks and log home living, having grown up in a family log home in the Adirondacks, and then building a log chalet overlooking Whiteface and the Ausable River in Wilmington, which is now a popular vacation rental fully booked year round. HomeAway listing #3651607. This Adirondack log lodge style home is now the 3rd, and has been custom designed entirely by the owner to maximize the forested hilltop views and location and incorporates all the best features learned from a lifetime of log home living and also photographing many premier Adirondack properties.

Please thoroughly read through the attached rental agreement, to familiarize yourself with the house policies and rules, which include no shoes worn in the home, no smoking around the home, not leaving any egregious messes, safety with fire and watercraft, respecting the grounds, and other common sense policies. Dogs are welcome (no cats) for a pet fee of $10/nt, with additional related pet rules.

Payments: Payments and payment schedules and billing reminders are handled by Airbnb automatically. Reservations are only confirmed upon payment, and dates are not possible to be held tentatively. Please refer to my rental agreement for full cancellation policy terms which may differ than the default Airbnb cancellation terms.

Location: The house is located on River Road in Lake Placid New York 12946. The home is set a forested hilltop, up a 600ft long switchback driveway above River Rd, with enough pine trees to block the view between the road and the home. Take care when negotiating the steeper switchbacks if you have a large vehicle with a poor turning radius. Overall the house location is very quiet and private, with the views of the mountains and pine trees surrounding the home and the wind amongst the trees.

Note: In winter months November - April it is mandatory that are vehicles use AWD or 4-wheel drive. 2WD vehicles not suitable.

Door codes and access info will be sent upon booking, for independent self check-in/out. Arrival 4:00pm or later, departure 10:00am or earlier to allow for cleaning between; arrival and departure times are strict, no exceptions.

Area Activities: Lake Placid region offers boundless options. Hiking trails are just 5 minutes away at the Adirondack Loj trailheads to the major High Peaks, and there are plenty of smaller easier hikes with great views too. Mountain biking trail networks are a 2 minute bicycle ride down the road. We are located on River Rd which is on the Ironman triathlon course, and so this quiet country road is very popular for road bikers and skate skiers and runners. Fly fish the Ausable River also just 1 minute down River Road to an assortment of eddies and river beds on public land. In the wintertime, Whiteface Mountain Ski Area is just 10 minutes away for world-class skiing, and cross country ski trail networks are also just 5 minutes away. The Olympic village of Lake Placid is only 4 minutes' drive to all the shops and restaurants, and the ski jumps are just 2 minutes away.
