Guest access

The space will be yours while you are here. We offer a lot of value for reasonable rates at our cozy home, because we think people can enjoy the outside without losing modern amenities inside.

Interaction with guests

Owners are not present during the guests stay, but we are always available via phone, email or text message for questions before, during, and after your visit.
This camp has been our family's Adirondack home-away-from-home for four generations. Our grandfather grew up in the area, and wanted to share the beauty of Adirondacks with his grandchildren.
In the same spirit that he shared this camp and the Adirondacks with all of us, we look forward to sharing it with you for your vacation.

The house was exactly as advertised. It was a perfect little mountain house in eye shot of Whiteface (5 minute drive and a walk to the shuttle). Mike and Mary are extremely responsive and answered any questions we asked, usually within the hour. They consistently went above and beyond. If I come back again I will definitely look for this place again!

Mary and Mike sent me tons of information to help us spend a wonderful weekend. The house is located at a very quiet neighborhood and is very convenient to get access to the Whiteface Mountains and the surrounding area. The house is small but cozy. I have no problem finding it.

We had an awesome experience staying at this house in Wilmington. Mike and Mary were extremely attentive, responding to our questions very quickly regardless of the hour. They provided us with numerous suggestions for activities, which proved to be extremely helpful during our stay. The house itself was very cozy, and Mike and Mary even have little signs everywhere to help you work your way around the house. I would definitely rent from them again in the future.

We really enjoyed our stay at Cozy Base Camp. The location is perfect for hiking in the Adirondacks. There is a great little market within walking distance of the camp and a charming local park and beach nearby. The owners left very good instructions and a lot of information about local activities. We had plenty of room and there is parking for several vehicles. We had a couple of questions during our stay and Mike responded very quickly. We definitely recommend this listing.

The Cozy Base Camp was just that: cozy! I went with four other city friends for a birthday weekend and it was so lovely and beautiful. Mary made sure that we felt right at home (which we did the ample furniture that allowed us to unpack our belongings instead of living out of suitcases for a week). Mary checked in a couple times during our stay to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. The Base was also clearly labeled so we knew how to use the appliances and where things were located (i.e extra sheets and towels). Everything was clean and it was a very great stay! Mary also supplied us with a GREAT list catered to the things I wanted to do in the area (hiking trails, kayaking sites, restaurants, etc.).

Thank you for the lovely words Vy! We were so pleased that you made our Camp the base for your Adirondack Birthday adventures! It sounds like you had a great week of hiking, kayaking and swimming. Thank you so much for choosing us!

My name is Mary. I have recently settled back in NY State after almost a decade abroad. My brother Mike is also a traveller and all-around Adirondack enthusiast.
We are members of a large family that has loved visiting the Adirondacks for generations.
For me the best part about traveling has always been getting to know a new place and the people who live there. I love the feeling of being somewhere I have never been before, and figuring out my way around so that I can call it my own.
I enjoy people, and the breadth of knowledge that comes from listening to and learning from the folks I meet along the way.
With all the wonderful places I have traveled or lived, I am always drawn back to these beautiful Adirondack Mountains. There is a serenity and a vibrancy that is stimulating and sustaining.
I hope you will enjoy your time here in the Adirondacks.
