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. In 2008 we introduced our first cabin - Random Scoots Cabin (VRBO listing #181716). We are now proud to offer our newest cabin - Mercy Cabin. So 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 and Mercy Cabins will serve your needs.
Mercy Cabin is 1280 square feet, including the main room (kitchen, dining nook, and living room), 3 large bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. A loft provides extra sleeping space for older children. And no need to clutter the living space with all your gear. Between the large mudroom inside the cabin and the large side porch you'll find plenty of room for gear storage and drying.
All interior walls and cathedral ceilings are finished in 12' wide pine boards. Plenty of large windows and sliding doors. The result is a spacious, warm, bright, and charming interior atmosphere very much in keeping with the wooded setting. Our guests refer to Mercy as a 'luxury cabin', combining the charm of a cabin and the luxuries of home.
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 cabins 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 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.
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 families.

Magical Cbin in the forest
WOW. Our family had such a wonderful experience from the first communication about renting through our entire stay. This was a combination trip of business and pleasure, and the the high-speed wifi, many outlets for charging, well-equipped kitchen and comfortable beds for a good night's rest made it a successful adventure. Additionally, the decor in this luxury cabin was magical. I (Mom) enjoyed sleeping in the loft! What fun! I HIGHLY recommend staying at Mercy Cabin. Thank you SO much for your hospitality. We will be back.
3 C's! Clean, comfortable, convenient
We enjoyed our 5-night stay at Mercy cabin. The place was spotless and had everything needed for a comfortable and pleasant experience. The photos do not do fully show the thoughtful details incorporated into the cabin. Thank you for a great week in the Adirondacks.
