If you are looking for a clean, warm place to put up your feet after a day in the mountains, the Hiker's Roost (formerly Chickadee House) is a three bedroom, comfortable base camp in the High Peaks of the Adirondacks.

The Hiker's Roost is located in the hamlet of Keene Valley. Keene Valley is the starting point for amazing mountain access into the eastern High Peaks.

We offer a vacation rental with a two night minimum. Discounts occur if you book three nights or more. Dogs are welcome.

The Hiker's Roost is available year-round as a base camp while you explore the eastern High Peaks Region of the Adirondack Park -- whether you're here to hike along the valleys, climb the peaks, ski the summits, or take part in winter mountaineering.

The Hiker's Roost is a simple yet comfortable single story manufactured house with a full kitchen (stocked with dishware, cooking utensils, plates and glasses, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, etc...), washer and dryer, plus two full bathrooms (one with an extra large bath tub). In the winter, there is a wood stove and plenty of firewood available for you to create a cozy atmosphere. We also have soft flannel sheets on the beds in the winter to help you have the perfect night's sleep.

The Hiker's Roost is dog/pet friendly and has a fenced in back yard. The house is on NYS Route 73, two doors down from an wonderful local farm store (Rivermede Farm based here in Keene Valley). You will be walking distance from the Mountaineer (less than 10 minute walk) and local dining places such as the Ausable Inn (approx. 15 minute walk), and the Noonmark Diner (approx. 20 minute walk).

The Hiker's Roost is set up to be ecologically friendly. The house is painted with no-VOC paints, we use recycled paper products, and we provide ecologically safe dishwashing and clothes washing soap to protect our local environment.

Price is for double occupancy. Each additional person is $30/night. Discount of 10% if booked for three nights or more.
Check in time is 4pm.
Check out time is 11am.

Enjoy staying in the heart of the Adirondack High Peaks! Please contact us for any additional information.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2004

          About the owner: Kinna and Gene Ohman-Leone are rescue horse trainers who use only positive reinforcement methods (no punishment or pressure). They live on a farm and have 3 horses, 1-2 foster horses in training, 4 sheep, 2 border collies, and a small flock of chickens (all the other animals are also clicker trained!).

          Why the Owner Chose Keene:
          Kinna Ohman-Leone purchased this property as her main home in 2004. She loved the fact she could live in the midst of the Adirondack High Peaks, while being two doors away from Rivermede Farm Store (with the farm itself located just a mile away). She finds the community of Keene Valley to be a vibrant place to be!

          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
          Kinna Ohman-Leone loved living here and exploring the local trails (whether along creeks or up mountains), eating great food at the Noonmark Diner and Ausable Inn, and enjoying the local communities of Lake Placid, Saranac Lake, and Tupper Lake.
