About the property

2015 BUILT - HOT TUB, RAIN SHOWERS, GOURMET KITCHEN, 3 KINGS & BUNK ROOM

Welcome to Boulder Ridge! (23 year age minimum to rent this property) Built in 2015, this dream vacation home was designed for people that truly appreciate the great outdoors, but who also want to relax and feel pampered. Boulder Ridge boasts 2600 square feet of pure pleasure on 7 acres of secluded, peaceful, mountainside in the heart of the High Peaks Region. Perched 2 miles above the hamlet of Keene, close to the charming towns of Keene Valley and Jay, Boulder Ridge is only a short drive to Lake Placid and Whiteface Mountain Ski Resort. Anyone who visits will find an endless choice of activities and plenty of privacy to relax.

As you arrive catch a glimpse of the the magnificent views, spectacular decks, hot tub, open fire pit, outdoor shower (seasonal) and sprawling yard and then come inside to the home that was designed for the serious Adirondack vacationer. The house sleeps up to 12 people, and features 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. You will enjoy a large open floor plan, including a chef's kitchen and large dining area flanked by a great room with vaulted ceilings, wood-burning stove, and all new stylish furniture. A simply wonderful space for gathering the family and friends. When it is time to rest you will get cozy in one of our 3 king bedrooms or specially designed "Young Adults/Kids" get away bunk/TV room. And don't forget the bathrooms! Each outfitted with rain showers, long vanities and double sinks, everyone will feel like they are on their own private vacation.

The Main floor is where you will find the core of the house. Designed to maximize the most spectacular view, this open floor plan includes a very generous kitchen, including all granite counter tops, a 10' island with double sink, 6 burner stove, oven and microwave, large refrigerator, large pantry and everything else you need to prepare a gourmet meal or just a snack. A desk has also been added, as an extension to the kitchen, for you to plug in phones, tablets or computers, to stay as connected as you want to be. The dining room, which flanks the kitchen, reaches toward the view and boasts a large table to sit up to 12 people, when extended. After a long hike or big dinner, meander into the Great Room and nestle into the large, leather, sectional for a show, kick back in the recliner with a book or maybe just grab a nap in front of a warm, wood burning stove. Finally, when it is time to turn in from your best, first vacation day ever, you can choose from 4 different options.

On the main floor, experience the comforts of a king bedroom furnished with brand new furniture and plush bed, letting you get cozy to read your favorite book or catch a show on the TV provided. The floor, in this room, along will all floors in the house, are radiant floor heated for maximum comfort. Then get spoiled with your own attached bathroom, which includes a large custom shower, separate 6' soaking tub, private toilet, long double vanity and walk in closet.

In addition to the upstairs bedroom, there are two King Bedrooms and a Bunk Room downstairs. Each of these rooms gives you space to spread out and private access to the outside (Hot Tub, Fire Pit, Under Deck Seating). You will also be able to take advantage of the very comfortable radiant floor heating system, throughout, that will keep you toasty in the winter and comfortable in the summer. The first King bedroom provides a plush mattress and the Second King a firm mattress, to meet the needs of every sleeper. With individual decor in each room and comfortable linens, these two king rooms share a bathroom that includes regular and rain shower heads and a double sink vanity.

For the younger vacationer, including kids and young adults, we have put together a "Get Away Suite". This suite includes two custom made bunk beds, a leather sleeper sofa, an entertainment center and it's own private bathroom. Play your favorite X Box game, catch a movie or pull out the board games, either way this room makes space for 6 of the younger generation to sleep in one of 4 twin sized bunk beds or pull out the leather sofa and sleep 2. The larger bathroom, with a private toilet and shower, including a jumbo rain shower, double vanity and plenty of towels, will allow for a larger group to maintain privacy and have their own space.

Outside, the decks were built to use. You can utilize the vast deck area for cooking on the propane grill and feeding a large group or just enjoying the view. To get refreshed hop into our 6-7 person hot tub or grab a warm outdoor shower just before going down to the fire pit to chat about the days events and what is on the schedule for your next adventure.

Now that you are set with all the amenities, make sure to step out and truly enjoy all the Adirondacks have to offer. Each season brings a special opportunity to those who venture out by offering some of the most beautiful scenery you can imagine and endless activities to keep everyone busy. In the Summers you can enjoy things like hiking, biking, canoeing, climbing, fishing to name a few, while in the Winters gearing up for downhill skiing, snow shoeing, sledding or taking a ride down the Olympic Bob Sled. When Fall arrives stay with us for a long weekend and soak in the colors of nature like you have never seen before. For those who just want to relax, enjoy a soak in the Ausable River, across from Marcy Field or at Chapel Pond and shoppers, don't feel left out. Antiquing, arts & crafts and farmers markets are all part of the local flare to easily fill your days. You can find all the finest shopping and restaurants within a range of 2-20 miles and never be bored.

While you stay with us it is important to remember that safety is paramount and our motto is "Leave No Trace" when hiking and enjoying other activities in these beautiful surroundings. We have a strong hope for the longevity of this beautiful park and it's care is up to those who enjoy it.

About Randall & Holly

The High Peaks Region is a very special place and goes back in the family for generations. Holly has enjoyed the area since she was a child, living here in the Summers and frequenting to ski in the Winters. On my first visit to the High Peaks, I proposed to Holly at the peak of Big Crow. It was at that point I knew our family would carry the torch and make a new home here. 15 years later we have been able to make that dream come true. Together we have decided that not only will we retire here, but make this place available for so many others to enjoy. With this in mind, we have assembled a team that is dedicated to giving you the best service, by maintaining an impeccable home and grounds. Our standards are very high to make sure you have a clean and safe place to bring your family and friends and share with us, one of the most beautiful places in the world.

Randall & Holly purchased this house in 2015

Why Randall & Holly chose Whiteface Mountain

Boulder Ridge was developed on land that has been in the family for decades. Adjacent to other family homes and property, Boulder Ridge boasts breathtaking views, privacy and a proximity to an endless source of activities. We know there is something for everyone and we could think of nothing better than building this home to enjoy it with you.

What makes this house unique

Prior to building our home at Boulder Ridge, we took two years to design our home considering the needs of anyone that visits. We know that whether you are with 12 people or 2, everyone wants to experience something different on vacation. We love the area and home because we believe you truly get that balance that will make it a time to remember.

NO SOPHOMORE SLUMP!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time around at this fantastic spot. We were actually the 2nd people ever to stay there! Guess what? Nothing has changed. The place is as clean as when we went a year ago, and the view - night, day, sunset, sunrise - is astounding. We were 7 this time around. Everyone had plenty of space and plenty of spots to gather as friends and family. This is Keene, NY, not NH, and the reason you came - those great High Peaks - are all within miles of your own backyard. It's 10-25 minutes to any great trailhead. The fire circle is an outrageous way to end the day, with more stars than thoughts in the sky. You can sit on the deck and watch the wind move methodically through the poplars and pines. Great beds, huge great room with kitchen. Oh, and a hot tub, for your apre hike. Worth every penny. You'll start planning your next trip as soon as you pull in. Perfect.

New home with a fantastic view

  • 5 of 5

We visited in early September just after Labor Day. The home is new with nice finishing touches. The wrap around deck was our favorite place to congregate. It has a beautiful mountain view.

Could not have been better!

Wonderful place, great views, clean as a whistle. Terrific porch for a keeshond (and we have a very discerning beast!). Equally good for kids I would bet. Very comfortable, spacious, and airy throughout.
