Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful place. My friends called me a hero for finding such a beautiful place.

Location

Car: necessary

The town of Keene is located in the famous High Peaks region of the Adirondack Park. There is great hiking and camping and uncrowded roads for sightseeing. Lake Champlain is to the East and Lake placid to the west. It is wonderful for curling up before a fire or for the most demanding of outdoor activities. There are many good restaurants and evening activities in Lake Placid and the surrounding area. In Summer and Fall warm days and cool nights are characteristic and the Fall foliage is no more spectacular anywhere in the Northeast. This area offers something for everyone.

Wonderful home; gracious hosts

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our college roommates reunion trip. The house is spacious and comfortable, and incredibly well equipped with kitchen equipment--everything you need is there. The views from the deck are breathtaking, and the location is a short drive from Lake Placid, and Whiteface Mountain. Tom and Joy are gracious and helpful hosts, and not at all intrusive. Highly recommended!

Exactly as described +more !

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with our stay at this property.

The property is secluded, at the end of a road. Nothing but trees & mountains for views. Great place to get away from it all.

The inside has everything we needed, was immaculate, and very roomy. The huge fire pit at night was a great treat.

The property is as shown in the photos and described in the listing. No surprises.

The property owner was very helpful upon arrival.

Views, privacy and beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

This is a return visit for our family. It fit our needs perfectly. The home is spacious, private and has great views. The walking trails are lovely and more adventurous hikes are nearby. We enjoyed the added benefit of having a doe and two fawns stop by every morning. The owners are welcoming and are nearby to assist if needed. Great place!

Amazing views and wonderful hospitality, can't recommend enough!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week's stay at this wonderful house with breath-taking views in Keene, NY. My family of 4 was joined by my brother's family of 3 and our parents are were easily accommodated in Tom's fantastic house. The house is well-maintained and sits on a beautiful property, secluded but easy to get to: there is no car or other noises except those that nature provides. The house is about a 25 minute drive from Lake Placid, but we found many delightful little haunts in Keene itself, quite the quaint little village. We took advantage of the outdoor gas grill and fire pit, as well as the large wrap-around deck to enjoy the great weather and food the region has to offer. Tom is very helpful and friendly and knows the area quite well. He was very accommodating and was available to answer all questions we had. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and are already thinking about our when we can return for another stay!

Beautiful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a week at Tom & Joy's property and had one of the best, most memorable vacations we've ever taken. The property was gorgeous, well-stocked and clean. Tom stopped by shortly after our arrival to introduce himself and make sure everything was as we expected. He was able to suggest some nearby hiking trails as well as point us in the direction of the best places for certain foods. One of the trails he suggested was on the property and ended up being the spot where my boyfriend and I got engaged! During the week we noticed a leak in the basement; Tom was at the house within an hour to check on it and clean up. All in all, this place lived up to the listing and the many other positive reviews which were previously left. If you are looking for a tranquil and awe-inspiring location for a break from the craziness of life, look no further!
