Amidst spectacular panoramic mountain views, an inviting, furnished, and fully equipped rustic mountain cottage on 30 secluded acres in the High Peaks Region of the Adirondack Mountains, approximately 2 miles above Keene. Be sure to check for last minute discount specials.
Only 15 miles from Lake Placid (Olympic attractions) and 20-25 miles from Lake Champlain (with 20-minute ferry between Essex, NY and Charlotte, VT ). Breathtaking, lofty panoramic view of the Great Range and more, including Mt. Marcy (many say the best such view in the Adirondacks). During May-October, one may enjoy the scenery and the sounds of wildlife, hike many nearby and High Peaks trails, rock climb, fish and swim in the Ausable River, canoe and kayak in nearby ponds, lakes and streams, play golf or tennis . . . even checkers! Leaf-peeping usually best from late-September to mid-October. Ideal for novelists, poets, scholars . . . or just plain old (and young) nature lovers.
House sleeps 8 max Two small contiguous main floor bedrooms, one with a double bed and a view of the "Great Range," the other with two single beds. Upstairs bedroom with one double bed and a contiguous loft with two single beds. Thus ideally configured for two families. Otherwise sleeps 8 max due to single downstairs bathroom and limited dining table seating.
On the main floor: kitchen, full shower/bath, living/dining (table seats 4- 6, or 8 if small children squeezed in). There are also tray tables in the building for your use. Additionally: a beautiful, stone wood-burning fireplace, large "picture window" (with "the Great Range" view), and a nice private deck.
Also available: stereo system.However, no landline telephone (though Verizon-compatible cell phones work just fine). Partially winterized (including moveable radiators) for sometimes chilly Spring and Autumn nights. There is a trunk full of extra blankets for your use if you get chilly.
Heavily wooded property, hence little space for major organized sports. For these and most other serious outdoor activities--boating, fishing, golfing, hiking, hunting (no guns allowed), rock-climbing, swimming, tennis, etc.--we go mostly off property in and around the valley, the Ausable River (fantastic swimming holes!), and nearby mountains and lakes. The local community center in town offers soccer field, tennis courts, baseball diamond and a play ground.
Available May 15 -October 1 as there is no central heating, only fireplace and two bedroom electric radiators.
Easy access: 2-2.5 hours drive from Albany (NY), Burlington (VT), and Montreal
