About the Property

5 Bedrooms,3 Baths,22 Acres Of Woods And Meadow,a View Of The Sentinel Range.

This seasonal Lodge, on 22 acres, is located 2 miles outside of Keene. There are no neighbors in sight from the Lodge. This is a newly renovated home with five bedrooms and three full bath rooms. The master bed room is located up stairs on the north side. It has a queen bed and its own bathroom.Downstairs on the north side are two bedrooms. One has a queen bed and the other has two twin beds.They share a common bath room. Up stairs on the south side, there are two bedrooms. One has two twin beds and one has a full size bed. They share a bathroom.

The fully equipped new kitchen has a gas range, microwave, dishwasher, large refrigerator, and the usual kitchen appliances and cooking utensils.There is a second refrigerator off the dining room.

The dining room, which is open to the kitchen and living room, can comfortably seat 12 people at the new hand made pine and birch table. French doors open off the dining room onto a large deck over looking the meadow. On the deck you will find chairs to relax in, a picnic table with benches, and a gas grill.

The great room, with its vaulted ceiling, has seating for 12 people.There is a gas fireplace for those chilly nights. Upstairs on the south side there is a family room, with TV, DVD player, DVDs, games and a gas fire place for your enjoyment.The family room and the deck off the family room have a partial view of the Sentinel Range.

There is no telephone land line and mobile phone reception is limited. Verizon gets the best reception.

The front porch is a great place to unwind in Adirondack chairs. Step off the porch and there are 22 acres to explore. The large meadow has a fire pit with seating. There is firewood in the nearby lean-to.

There are several well marked trails which take you up Eisenglass Mountain. Along the way there are views of Hurricane Mt. and the High Peaks to the south. The trails are one of our favorite hikes to take, and is great for first time young hikers.

The woods are full of variety, color and boulders...they are a wonderful place to walk. In season, wild raspberry's abound, and on many days deer are in the meadow.

Within a short distance you can be hiking the High Peaks, swimming in any one of the nearby swimming spots, or just relaxing at one of the local restaurants.

Less than 10 minutes by car is Owls Head Mountain, which offers a good short hike with lovely views of Keene Valley and Cascade Mountain.

We are just 35 minutes from the ferry to Vermont. The ferry ride is spectacular, with views of the Adirondacks and the Green Mountains.

Lake Champlain is just 30 minutes to the east and the ferry to Vermont is 45 minutes away.

We are just 20 minutes from all that Lake Placid has to offer, including great restaurants, shopping, cinema,Mirror Lake for swimming, boating and tennis. The Olympic venues are all close by. A trip to John Brown's Farm is to see history up close. Whiteface Mountain is 12 miles away and the drive up Memorial Highway should not be missed.

On Sundays in the summer local crafts and farm fresh products are found at the farmers market at Marcy Field in Keene Valley, just 5 miles away.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2011

About: We have lived in the Rochester area our whole life and have always enjoyed the outdoors.

Why Keene, NY, USA:
Our family has vacationed in the Adirondacks for many years. We fell in love with the High Peaks area and were fortunate to acquire Rock Meadow Lodge in 2011. Since then, we have had wonderful family times making the Lodge into our home and enjoying the mountains, our children and our grandchildren. There is nothing like the peacefulness of the mountains and adventures to be found in the Adirondacks to make for great family vacation.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We were taken by Rock Meadow Lodge because of its central location, peaceful setting, acres to explore and the mountains to be seen.
