Lake Placid and High Peaks Region Vacation Rentals — LISTING ID: VR6090

Let Owl's Head Cabin be your High Peaks Base Camp for adventure and recreation, and your quiet retreat tucked away in the woods. Be right in the middle of the High Peaks for hiking or skiing this week or weekend!

Located adjacent to the Owl Head Lookout and Giant Mountain Trailhead on 9N between Keene Valley and Elizabethtown, our family's cabin in the mountains gives you all the comforts of home with quick access to climbing, hiking, skiing, and fishing for daytime activities.

Owl's Head is a secluded and picturesque place to vacation, with a mountain-fed stream flowing behind the cabin. Sited on forty acres of pine and birch forest adjacent to the Giant Mountain Wilderness Forest, there is much to explore right outside your back door.

After the day's activities, cook in the cabin's well equipped kitchen or dine out at the warm and friendly Baxter Mountain Tavern, just minutes away. Delicious prepared meals are available from Cedar Run Bakery in Keene.

The cabin sleeps up to 5 persons. There is one ground-floor level bedroom with a queen bed, and one upstairs loft with a queen bed and a twin daybed. On the porch in Summer and Fall is a full size futon sofa. The bathroom with full size shower (no tub) is on ground-floor level.

The compact but full-featured kitchen includes a full-sized fridge, dishwasher, microwave and gas range. On the South side of the house, there is a screened-in porch that opens to the deck overlooking the stream below.

Winters are warm and cozy in the fully winterized and heated cottage that also includes a woodstove with firewood provided.

With the Owl Head Lookout and Giant trailhead next door, Hurricane just down the road, and Whiteface Mountain 30 minutes away, the mountains and ponds of the High Peaks are right out your front door.
