This cabin is in the heart of the high peaks, 15 minutes from Whiteface, and 25 minutes from Lake Placid. It is nestled on a hill right off the main road, overlooking the village of Keene! It is within walking distance from all of the shops in town. Although the driveway is plowed, it is steep, so in the winter you will need four wheel drive. Although the cabin is off Rt 73, it is tucked away and very private!

The space

The cabin is relatively new, built in 2007, and has beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. The backyard is very private, with a deck, BBQ, and fire pit. It comes with all the appliances you would need, including a brand new washer/dryer, and dishwasher.

Guest access

Guests will have private use of the downstairs floor, and the backyard.This includes a bedroom with a queen bed and an empty closet, a full bathroom stocked with towels, a kitchen stocked with everything a kitchen should have, and a living room with a wood stove, one regular couch, and one pull out couch. There is also a hammock under the stairs :) The deck has beautiful views through the trees, and is very private. I will be there to check you in, and then I will leave and you will have the house to yourself! You can text me if you need anything or have any questions!

It was a wonderfully relaxing weekend made more so by the fact this place was so nice and centrally located. BEAUTIFUL interior and great place to base camp for some weekend hiking.

Kari’s cabin was perfect! Everything was exactly as pictured- especially liked the hammock swing and the fire pit. The cabin is really nice and has a secluded feel while still being walkable to the town of keene and in a good location to explore the lake placid area.

Oh man...We LOVED our stay at Kari's. Keene is a really beautiful little town with excellent restaurants, cafes and shops. The cabin itself was immaculate and quite frankly...a dream. Cell service is non-existent out there unless you're with Verizon, however the wifi was excellent. My advice? Download a copy of the directions before you leave. Kari was quick to communicate and a real pleasure to deal with. Quick drive to a bunch of great hiking spots. Perfect place to prepare for IM Lake Placid. We can't wait to return and stay with her again. Thanks Kari!

My husband and I stayed at Kari's place for a few nights of a longer road trip we were taking through the northeast. Pros: Excellent location: close many pitch-offs for fantastic hiking, to ADK cafe, Cedar Run Grocery, and local shops; Excellent value: lovely amount of space, peaceful setting, comfortable and clean; Great for cooking and eating in; Super responsive host. Cons: none

The home was comfortable and clean, a wonderful mountain retreat. Loved the log cabin and wood interior. Really fun to find a fire pit in the back yard, we enjoyed s'mores at the end of the day. We'd come back and we'd recommend it to others.

The place is incredibly beautiful and is walking distance to an absolutely fantastic cafe. Kari was totally accessible and our experience (myself, my husband and our twin 21 yr old boys) couldn't have been better. We're hoping to stay again next year.

I love to ski and hike, so this house has been a dream come true! I'd love to share it with you! Except I won't be there, it's all yours!
