Lake Placid chalet description

Random Scoots is located in Keene, NY, in the heart of the Adirondack High Peaks region. We have offered guided hikes in the region since 2004, and are now offering two cabins for vacation rental - Random Scoots Cabin and Mercy Cabin (see VRBO listing 370114). Whether you are looking for convenient access to the multitude of activities and attractions available in the region or simply want a quiet place to relax and get away from it all, Random Scoots will serve your needs.

The Cabin:

Random Scoots Cabin (really a small home!) is over 900 square feet, including the main room (kitchen, dining nook, and living room), 3 bedrooms and 1 full bathroom. The third bedroom can alternatively be used as a large storage room set up to hold plenty of gear.

The bathroom is finished with v-groove pine walls and ceiling, while the remainder of the cabin features 12' wide pine boards on both walls and ceilings, resulting in a warm and charming interior atmosphere very much in keeping with the wooded setting.

The Property:

Our location, 1/2 mile off Rte 73 on a private road, is accessible yet remarkably quiet. Situated on a wooded property, the grounds around the cabin transition from a well kept lawn to open woods with maintained native ground cover to a managed woodlot, resulting in an open and inviting atmosphere. The location features spectacular views across the valley to Hurricane Mountain and surrounding peaks, with glimpses of Giant and Dix Mountains. Sound effects are provided by the gentle murmur of the Ausable River East Branch in the valley below.

The Region:

The centerpiece of the region is the Adirondack High Peaks, where hundreds of miles of foot trails provide access to the rugged beauty of the mountain interior. Outdoor activities in the region include hiking, snowshoeing, back-country and cross-country skiing, mountaineering, rock and ice climbing, trail running, wildlife viewing, flat water and whitewater paddling, hunting, fishing... the list goes on and on, limited only by your imagination. For those with less ambitious goals, or on rest days, Lake Placid and the surrounding region offer a multitude of relaxing and interesting attractions and activities. A sampling -

- Lake Placid: Home of the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympic Games
- Tupper Lake: The Wild Center (Regional Natural History Museum)
- Blue Mountain Lake: Adirondack Museum (Regional Human/Cultural History Museum)
- Whiteface Mountain: The Olympic mountain is a short 15 mile drive.

Our Philosophy:

It is no wonder that generations of outdoor enthusiasts have been drawn to the rugged beauty of the Adirondack Region. Visionary legislation that established the Adirondack Park in 1892 initiated a tradition of conservation aimed at ensuring that this critical natural resource be preserved. It is incumbent on today's users of the resource to carry on that tradition. We at Random Scoots believe that by responsibly enjoying our public lands today we can ensure that the same opportunities will be available for future generations.

We further believe that development of the intimate and respectful relationship with nature that is so important to our future begins in childhood, and we strive to create a family friendly atmosphere, a comfortable and enjoyable retreat where parents can nurture this relationship in their children. In keeping with that goal our rate structure is designed to encourage couples and families. As a further benefit Random Scoots guide service offers reduced guiding rates to families.

Additional information, including guiding rates and an online PHOTO ALBUM, is available upon inquiry.
