The Leonard Lodge is in the heart of Wilmington, was established in 1993, revamped in 2011 and modernized in 2016. It's about a 6 minute drive to the Whiteface mountain ski resort, 18 minute drive to Lake Placid and very conveniently located next to the town's Little Super Market which along with their go-to deli counter, LSM has basic essentials to stock the pantries so an unplanned trip to the grocery isn't necessary. Craft beer? Yes! Wilmington has quite the selection over at the North Pole Camp Grounds General store, so much variety. There is also a liquor store available there too.
Our family travels with small children often so we know about the little things when vacationing. We have supplied basic toys and books in the kids bunk room, a Graco pack n play is available for use (bring your own crib sheets) step stool for the bathroom and the full size washer and dryer will make any mom's home away from home life much easier! This is our beloved ADK home, we hope you love it as much as we do for a family retreat. We have taken loftly measures to ensure that although this home is in the beautiful wilderness of the ADK park the basic essentials of life are available including: Wifi, Apple Tv, Netflix, Sling Tv and Updated Televisions in every bedroom and both living areas. There is no house phone however the wifi is excellent for wifi enabled phones and the service is great on the Verizon network that spans the ADK's. I should also note here the television in the bunk room only works with netflix and amazon prime videos both of which are supplied on the tv there unfortunately at this time there is no cable to that room. All the other rooms have the mentioned internet subscriptions.
Other house items:
Large and updated outdoor fire pit with picnic tables to enjoy s'mores or just a few evening beverages around the fire. We do not provide wood at this time however there is usually plenty for sale close by and the plethora of woods behind the house tends to be an endless easy supply from fallen trees from winters past.
Adirondack handmade sports bar in the downstairs entertainment room along with 2 twin sofa sleepers, flat sceen LED tv with apple tv, dart board, stereo and board games.
Fully stocked Kitchen with coffeemaker, blender, convection toaster, crockpot, pots and pans, full size fridge, gas style cook top and oven.
The Leonard Lodge is within minutes to Whiteface Mountain, Santa's Workshop, Little Super Market, Ausable River, Lake Placid... to name a few. You’ll love The Leonard Lodge because of the views, the location, fully stocked kitchen, offset from road, quiet and private, outdoor spaces to enjoy, finished basement with custom bar and additional living area. The Leonard lodge is good for couples, solo adventurers, and families (with kids). On Face book you can find us @theleonardlodge.+ More
