This 1880's vintage 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. The cottage has one bedroom with a double bed; a kitchen equipped with a stove, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, china, silverware, and other utensils; one bathroom with a shower/bath; and an indoor living/dining room with a stone fireplace, wicker furniture, and a pullout couch for two. A detached one-room cabin with a screened porch (perfect for sleeping in the summer) is available by option, at additional cost.

The summer cottage is about 800 yards from the nearest structure, a classic Adirondack camp that shares its driveway but is not within sight of the cottage. Even so, it is only a short walk to the village of Keene Valley, which is located in the heart of the High Peaks region of the Adirondack Mountains. The Garden, one of the largest and most popular trailheads in the Adirondacks, is a 20-minute walk from the cottage along the same road.

Trails from the Garden 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, tennis, 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.

Meet the Owner(s)

About Us: Our family has been spending summers in Keene Valley since 1906. For four decades, until 1981, our two great-great aunts presided over the property. They were strict Methodists and forbid alcohol completely. One never married; the other married a minister at 76 . They maintained our classic Adirondack camp at a time when everyone dressed for dinner and meals were announced by a ring of the bell. Our father spent 3 months here every summer, hiking and playing tennis. Those were the days!

Why our property is special: The cottage was built in the 1880s by a Hudson River School artist on the knoll next to the one where Roswell Shurtleff built his studio. They were part of a group of artists who came to Keene Valley at the time to paint the natural world. The cottage sits atop a cliff with views of Giant, Spread Eagle and Hopkins mountains.
