Property description

The 'Castle House' offers our guests a chance to escape to your Adirondack adventure in a completely renovated Victorian home. All New Everything! This charming home, a historic landmark rich with local history, offers 3 bedrooms (1 with queen bed, 1 with 2 queens, & 1 with full bed - all bedding provided), 2.5 bathrooms (linens provided), a living room with a fireplace that is a work of art and will certainly draw your eyes away from the 42 inch HDTV with cable. The dining room is decorated with hand crafted bas relief sculpturing of local woodland scenes on all walls. The kitchen has all new appliances (incl. dishwasher), and comes complete with dishes, glass ware, silverware, pots, pans, plastic containers, serving dishes, coffee maker, coffee, sugar, tea, and basic assorted spices for our guests who enjoy cooking in. There are also restaurants and unique Adirondack shops within a two minute walk. The home has a private back yard complete with its own babbling brook, yet is located conveniently steps away from the Ironman Course, allowing for ease in watching the race. The home is in the 'High Peaks' region of the Adirondack Park, known for its natural beauty. Nearby activities include: Fly fishing in the Ausable River (one of the top 20 trout fishing rivers in the country); boating, kayaking, canoeing or paddle boarding on numerous nearby lakes; small and big game hunting during season; hiking and mountain climbing; river tubing and river rafting; road and mountain biking; and horseback riding. If your passion is winter sports, Whiteface Ski and Sports Area is just a 15 minute drive. Also, there are miles of mountain biking and horse trails all within 10 minutes at Mt. Von Hoevenberg, as are the Luge and Bob Sled tracks. Exciting ice (in winter) and rock climbing (in summer) is also just 10 minutes away! There is a selection of mountaineering shops and guide services in the area to provide you with any equipment you need to purchase or lease. The Olympic Village of Lake Placid is a short 12 - 15 minute drive, and offers a variety of Olympic Venues, a selection of sporting events, a plethora of shops, antiquing, miniature golf at Pirates Cove Adventure Golf, movies, bowling, pubs and clubs, marinas, and restaurants ranging from fast food to gourmet. Be sure to see what events are scheduled at the Lake Placid Performing Arts Center, or join us for great music at 'Music on Main', or with the Sinfonetta. For those of you who are equine fans, the Lake Placid Horse Show and the I Love NY Horse Show is a quick 10 minute drive from the 'Castle House'. You really can't find a nicer home in a better location! Finally, the home owners live locally, so we are just a call away should you need advice or assistance. Please note cell and internet reception are often limited in the Adirondack Mountains...Verizon service is the most reliable. The Castle House has no land line. Minimum Stay in July and August is 5 nights.

Car: Recommended

Be sure to visit the Olympic Center and obtain your Olympic Passport, giving you access to all Olympic Venues! See where the US defeated Russia in the 1980 Olympic Hockey game! Be adventurous and take a ride on a Bobsled. Or, learn to ice climb! Whiteface Ski Resort, which boasts the highest vertical drop in the East, is just a short 15 minute drive away. In summer, rappel through the Ausable Caverns, called the 'Grand Canyon of the East', or view the Caverns from inner tube while lazily floating down the river! Watch amazing equine events at the Lake Placid Horse Shows! Stop at Pirates Cove Adventure Golf to play an exciting game of miniature golf with the family! Dine at the nearby Adirondack Cafe (yum) or the Adirondack Market and Restaurant. Or, grab some groceries or maybe some delicious, pre-prepared gourmet meals at the Cedar Run Bakery and Market. Or, stop in at a few of the local shops in Keene and Keene Valley (like the Dartbrook Rustic Goods, or The Soap Store, both across the street from the 'Castle House')...you won't be disappointed!

Please note: Cell and Internet reception in the Adirondacks is limited. Verizon seems to offer the most reliable coverage, especially in the Village of Keene, NY.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Adirondack born and breed, although lived throughout US until moving back here in 2001....worked as a Human Resources Executive for Prudential and then AIG Global Investment Group before moving back to the Adirondacks. My husband and I adopted an 11 year old girl from Russia about 8 years ago...she is the center of my world. I love my family, my dog and horse, friends and family. I enjoy meeting new people and hope to make many friends through renting out the Castle House.

Why the Owner Chose Keene:
It is newly renovated historic landmark that we saved from destruction. We literally touched every wire, pipe, fixture, piece of wood in the home while renovating it and bringing it back to life! It is a VERY unique, cozy, and 'artistic' home that is very well loved and cared for. We enjoy sharing this treasure with other folks!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home is for individuals and families that appreciate history, art, and the soul of older homes. It is indeed unique and beautifully restored, but retains its historic charm. Please note that this home has no air conditioning, but does not need it due to the cool Adirondack nights and the perfectly engineered air flow through the windows. Windows are original and as such, must be carefully opened and braced open. Take care with young children.
