Lake Placid Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-8)

Random Scoots is located in Keene, NY, in the heart of the Adirondack High Peaks region. We have offered guided hikes in the region since 2004, and are now offering two cabins for vacation rental - Random Scoots Cabin and Mercy Cabin (see VRBO listing 370114). Whether you are looking for convenient access to the multitude of activities and attractions available in the region or simply want a quiet place to relax and get away from it all, Random Scoots will serve your needs.

The Cabin:

Random Scoots Cabin (really a small home!) is over 900 square feet, including the main room (kitchen, dining nook, and living room), 3 bedrooms and 1 full bathroom. The third bedroom can alternatively be used as a large storage room set up to hold plenty of gear.

The bathroom is finished with v-groove pine walls and ceiling, while the remainder of the cabin features 12' wide pine boards on both walls and ceilings, resulting in a warm and charming interior atmosphere very much in keeping with the wooded setting.

The Property:

Our location, 1/2 mile off Rte 73 on a private road, is accessible yet remarkably quiet. Situated on a wooded property, the grounds around the cabin transition from a well kept lawn to open woods with maintained native ground cover to a managed woodlot, resulting in an open and inviting atmosphere. The location features spectacular views across the valley to Hurricane Mountain and surrounding peaks, with glimpses of Giant and Dix Mountains. Sound effects are provided by the gentle murmur of the Ausable River East Branch in the valley below.

The Region:

The centerpiece of the region is the Adirondack High Peaks, where hundreds of miles of foot trails provide access to the rugged beauty of the mountain interior. Outdoor activities in the region include hiking, snowshoeing, back-country and cross-country skiing, mountaineering, rock and ice climbing, trail running, wildlife viewing, flat water and whitewater paddling, hunting, fishing... the list goes on and on, limited only by your imagination. For those with less ambitious goals, or on rest days, Lake Placid and the surrounding region offer a multitude of relaxing and interesting attractions and activities. A sampling -

- Lake Placid: Home of the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympic Games

- Tupper Lake: The Wild Center (Regional Natural History Museum)

- Blue Mountain Lake: Adirondack Museum (Regional Human/Cultural History Museum)

- Whiteface Mountain: The Olympic mountain is a short 15 mile drive.

Our Philosophy:

It is no wonder that generations of outdoor enthusiasts have been drawn to the rugged beauty of the Adirondack Region. Visionary legislation that established the Adirondack Park in 1892 initiated a tradition of conservation aimed at ensuring that this critical natural resource be preserved. It is incumbent on today's users of the resource to carry on that tradition. We at Random Scoots believe that by responsibly enjoying our public lands today we can ensure that the same opportunities will be available for future generations.

We further believe that development of the intimate and respectful relationship with nature that is so important to our future begins in childhood, and we strive to create a family friendly atmosphere, a comfortable and enjoyable retreat where parents can nurture this relationship in their children. In keeping with that goal our rate structure is designed to encourage couples and families. As a further benefit Random Scoots guide service offers reduced guiding rates to families.

Additional information, including guiding rates and an online PHOTO ALBUM, is available upon inquiry.

Random Scoots and Cascade (16Feb09):

Random Scooter's cabin and Cascade Mt. all in one weekend. Does it get any better than that. I took my wife up to Keene to stay for the weekend at Random Scoots and we thought we would hit a peak on Saturday. It was her first trip to the Adirondacks and my second. The day was wonderfully sunny and temps in the low 20's. We started from the parking area at 8AM and reached the summit around 10:30. The trail was well packed and we wore snowshoes up to the summit rocks. The summit was amazing! My wife having never been on a windy summit before felt pretty vulnerable but was very excited. We descended back to the car with an arrival time of 12pm.



If you have never stayed at the Random Scoots cabin, you're missing out. It was very warm and cozy with EVERYTHING one might need or want.

A great cabin and guide

  • 5 of 5
Tom who owns the Random Scoots cabin does a superior job making guest welcome and comfortable. The cabin is cozy and spacious. Best of all Tom is an accomplished guide whose credentials and knowledge of the mountains is amazing. He guided my wife and me over the Dix Range climbing Macomb, South Dix, Grace, Dix and Hough. We did this over 2 day long hikes from Elk Lake and back. We are slow hikers but with Tom's patience and encouragement we got it done. And what a pleasure to arrive back at the cabin, have a relaxed dinner and a great nights sleep. The cabin is right in Keene so the cafe and bakery are close by and very good. Highly recommended.

Absolutely brilliant!

  • 5 of 5
We booked a few nights at the Random Scoots in October 2009. My husband, my parents and I were driving from Nova Scotia to Toronto and decided to go through the U.S. for the beautiful autumn scenery. It was perfect! This lodge is such a wonderful place. Pure relaxation, coziness and ultimate outdoor heaven. There's a fireplace inside (incase you have bad weather) and the interior design is just so cozy and quaint. We all absolutely loved it. The bedrooms are both very good sizes with very comfortable beds. We loved being able to build a fire outside and sit there for hours enjoying wine and beer. It was lovely in the autumn and I'm sure it would be lovely at every time of year. You probably don't NEED a car but I would recommend one. We drove to Lake Placid which is not far away and it is a lovely town. WE CANNOT WAIT TO GO BACK!!

Random Scoots is a wonderful place! We had a
terrific time; spent Christmas in the cabin, went for
a hike, then came back and cooked a fabulous
Christmas dinner right there in the cabin! We wish
we could have stayed longer, but we will definitely
be back very soon!

The new enclosed porch was a godsend and we
can't wait to see it finished!

Tom is a very attentive and accommodating host,
and he was sincerely interested in our comfort at
his property. Forty-six stars for Random Scoots!

We stayed at Random Scoots in early October and had a wonderful time. We travelled across Lake Champlain on the sunset ferry and so arrived in the dark; in the morning sunrise the next morning we realised what a beautiful location we were in. The cottage is large, warm, comfortable and well-furnished. We found it was the perfect base from which to explore all the Adirondacks have to offer. We left entirely refreshed and relaxed. We just wish it was a bit closer to home!

Random Scoots cabin is a great place to relax and rejuvenate! Excellent location, convenient to all sorts of outdoor activities. Spacious cabin, beautiful grounds, awesome views, great host! We loved the firepit, used it every night; it was a great place to relax and reminisce about the day's activities.
