Property description

Giant's View Lodge ( is a breathtaking vacation rental cabin located in Keene Valley, mid-way up Porter Mountain in the Adirondacks. Peacefulness and privacy abound here, amidst a wooded backdrop with incredible views of Giant Mountain and the Southern end of the Great Range of the High Peaks. The sunny clearing features a gently sloping yard with lovely perennial gardens, a playground, and a 50 foot wraparound deck complete with a barbecue grill and Adirondack chairs.

Out the back door it's only a 45 minute hike or snowshoe to the summit of Little Porter, and only a 2 mile jaunt to 'the Garden' (hiking trailhead), from which countless hiking and skiing trails can be accessed.

The lodge is a custom-built, 3,000 square-foot, beautifully appointed log home, with hardwood floors throughout, a fieldstone fireplace dominating the Great Room, cathedral ceilings, a fully equipped gourmet kitchen/dining area, complete with granite countertops and a Jenn-Aire grill. Providing lodging for up to 12 adults, sleeping areas include four bedrooms plus a spacious sleeping loft, accompanied by three bathrooms, the master bath featuring a 2-person shower and 2-person deep soaking bathtub. The walkout basement functions as a playroom complete with swing, climbing bars, and toys. Adirondack furnishings abound, and of course, floor-to-ceiling windows everywhere.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: Settling in Keene Valley in 1991, after purchasing and running Trail's End Inn for five years, we built our dream house overlooking Giant Mountain. Avid hikers, cyclists, rock climbers and general outdoor enthusiasts, we feel very fortunate to own this house in one of the most beautiful and peaceful areas of the country.

Why the Owner Chose Keene:
Keene Valley is a very special place with an amazing small town community. It didn't take us long to decide that we wanted to build a house and settle here, where we imagine spending time with our grand children one day. What we love about our home is the breathtaking views and privacy.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Our log house is built in classic Adirondack style with cedar post railings, a large fieldstone fireplace, large country kitchen, and views from every window in the house.
