Rivers, waterfalls, lakes and swimming holes abound. And then there’s the hiking, rock or ice climbing, canoeing and cycling. No matter what kind of get-away you are seeking, either adventuresome or restorative, Keene Valley offers you every option you could wish for.
The Red House is a brand-new luxury take on the classic Adirondack cabin. No expense was spared in the construction of this two-bedroom, net zero hideaway, placed perfectly on your own private 10 beautiful level and open acres to afford the most spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. The property has 300 feet of private Ausable River frontage. The house is a net negative energy house with no fossil fuels on the property. A high speed home Tesla charger is in the garage.
All of this privacy and beauty but still a short walk to downtown Keene Valley. A modern, temperature-controlled heating and cooling system creates the perfect haven from whatever nature has cooked up (or cooled down) outside. High-end appliances, luxury furnishings and elegantly designed spaces combine with thoughtfully arranged relaxation areas to create the perfect get-away destination. Sip your morning coffee on the vast deck while listening to the abundant birdlife or end your day with a glass of wine gathered around the fire pit as the sun sets over distant Rooster Comb. On those really hot summer days, you have the luxury of a private waterhole in your own stretch of the meandering Ausable River to cool off in.
Keene Valley sits at the very heart of the mighty Adirondack high peaks and the Roostercomb, Giant and Market Trail Heads are a short walk away — no worries about car parking. The Red House is just 1 minute from the center of this pretty little town.
Start your day at Old Mountain Coffee House where you’ll find fresh bagels, breakfast burritos, home-made muffins and the best coffee in the Adirondacks. Or cross the road to the classic Noon Mark diner for a breakfast that will keep you going till you return for dinner at the end of a full day’s adventure. Your dinner options also include the delightfully tasty fair at the hugely popular Ausable Inn.
Explore the Farmers Market, held every Sunday in summer on Marcy Field, the picturesque local aerodrome, or shop at the Birch Store, which for all it’s rustic charm, would not be out of place on 5 th Avenue. Take a short drive to neighboring Keene and explore the gorgeous homeware stores or wind your way along the beautiful roads that lead to Lake Placid, just 30 minutes away, stopping to take in mighty Whiteface along the way.
