This 1880's summer cottage is the perfect romantic getaway. The original studio of a Keene Valley artist, it is located on a secluded and elevated spot with marvelous views of Spread Eagle, Giant, Green, and Hopkins Mountains. The most stunning feature is a huge covered porch (not screened) that looks out on the mountains and functions as an outdoor dining room with a view. A nearby one-room cabin with a screened porch (perfect for sleeping in the summer) is available by for $250 per week.
The cottage has one bedroom with a double bed; a kitchen equipped with a stove, refrigerator, microwave, toaster; one bathroom with a shower/bath; and an indoor living/dining room with a stone fireplace, wicker furniture, and a futon that sleeps two people.
Trails from a popular trailhead nearby lead to Johns Brook Lodge and up the Johns Brook Valley to the Great Range and Mount Marcy. Many other trailheads are close by. Rock climbing, canoeing, mountain biking, swimming, golf, and fishing are also available in the area. Lake Placid, with its Olympic athletic facilities, competitions, restaurants, shopping, lake access, historic sites, and world-class horse shows, is a 25-minute drive.
Interaction with guests
Members of my family and I may be staying at the big house (on the circular part of the driveway on the way to the cottage) during your stay. We provide the phone number there, and you are welcome to stop by to introduce yourself or with questions. We try to provide everything you need to be self-sufficient during your stay, but we are available if necessary.
- The cottage is located at the top of a cliff, so it is not suitable for children under 5 or 6.
- Wifi may not be used for streaming movies/video or video games.
