SECLUDED HILLSIDE HOME WITH VIEWS OF WHITEFACE

Keene House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Bathrooms (Sleeps 8)

This 3,000 square foot 4bedroom/4.5bath timber frame home sits on the edge of a hillside meadow with great views and is less than five years old. The location is secluded and private in the heart of the High Peaks but only a short drive from the hamlets of Keene, Keene Valley, and Jay. The resort town of Lake Placid is only 30 minutes away by car and Whiteface Mountain Ski Area is a 20 minute drive from the house. Cross-country ski areas, numerous state-maintained hiking trails, and an abundance of other summer and winter recreation opportunities are nearby.

The main level features a great room with soaring wood ceilings, a full wall of glass to maximize the views, exquisite timber frame details, warm oak floors, and a wood-burning fireplace. This kitchen and dining area are open and connected to the great room in order to facilitate conversation and to allow views from all public spaces in the home. The kitchen is fully-equipped and features granite countertops, maple cabinetry, and stainless steel appliances including a Jenn-Air gas cooktop and electric oven, Asko dishwasher, LG French door refrigerator with ice maker, and a dual zone wine cooler. The dining table, seating six to eight, is lit at night by recessed lighting and a candle chandelier, but during the day has great views in several directions. There is also a separate sunny breakfast nook off the kitchen area for additional eating space for four people. The master bedroom on the main floor has a king bed with deluxe mattress and bedding, a gas fireplace, a large walk-in closet, and a bathroom with dual Kohler sinks, a large shower with deluxe showerhead and body jets, and a Jacuzzi Pure Air bath for ultimate relaxation. There is also a half bath on the main floor. Enjoy the views of the Jay Range, the Sentinel Range, and Clements Mountain from all three levels or get the full effect from the large 50' deck, which is accessible from the great room, dining area, and master bedroom on the main level.

Downstairs, there are two large bedrooms, one with a king bed and the other with a queen bed, as well as two bathrooms with showers. The laundry room is downstairs and features large capacity washer and dryer. The highlight of the lower level is a large rec room with a gas fireplace, LCD flat panel HDTV with satellite and surround sound, several seating areas, a wet bar with sink and refrigerator, a large sectional sofa, and numerous board games, puzzles, books, and videos.

On the upper level, the open loft overlooks the great room to the north and has a porch facing south. It features a cozy seating area with a reading chair and an Adirondack bookeshelf loaded with plenty of reading material, as well as a baby grand piano. The loft connects to a bedroom decorated in a bear theme with two twin beds and a private bath with tub, ideal for children and well-equipped with kids books, toys, and a kid-sized bean bag chair.

The main and lower levels are equipped with in-floor radiant heat and each of the four full bathrooms has supplemental heat. The house is fairly child-friendly and has two Stokke child chairs for the dinner table, other child seating such as a double child Adirondack chair, a Maclaren jogging stroller, safety gates for the stairways, and various toys, games, videos, and books for kids. The house is fully equipped with linens, including extra quilts, blankets, and cozy throws for snuggling on the couch. No detail was overlooked in the finishes such as tongue and groove Northern white cedar ceilings, massive fir timbers, slate tile floors, lighting by designers such as George Kovacs, original paintings and prints by Adirondack artists such as Bruce Mitchell and Ruth Rumney, oil-rubbed bronze hardware, and amenities such as an espresso machine in the kitchen, telescope for viewing the clear night skies, binoculars for bird-watching in the meadow, and stereo XM satellite music systems on two levels.

This setting is the perfect place to enjoy the serenity and natural beauty of the Adirondacks without having to sacrifice comfort. Red Oak Lodge truly is a special place in this most fascinating and captivating Adirondack Park. Winter provides opportunities for downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, watching the numerous winter sports in Lake Placid, sledding just out the back door, or simply enjoying the hush after a fresh snowfall. Spring brings a unique beauty as the forest and wilderness surrounding the house comes alive. Summer is full of life as the birds and wildlife make themselves known and as the communities throughout the North Country come alive with outdoor concerts, family events, art festivals, farmers markets, and more. The fall is unforgettable as the hills and valleys fill with color and cool days are perfect for hiking the area trails. You may never want to leave.

A four-wheel drive vehicle is essential in winter. Please be aware that internet service is not available at the house. Additionally, cell phone coverage in the Adirondacks is limited. Verizon users experience occasional service; all other service providers do not provide any cell phone service in the Keene area. No smoking and no pets allowed in the home.

About Scott Jones

We are a family of four that loves to spend time in the Adirondacks. Cammy has spent virtually every summer of her childhood in the region and on the farm that is nearby this property. Scott and the boys have grown to love this place and we have made many memories in the North Country and in this house every summer and at other times of year.

Scott Jones purchased this house in 2007

Why Scott Jones chose Keene

As Cammy was growing up going to her grandparents' farm every summer, she always thought that someday she would like to build a house in the 'Upper Meadow' above the farm. Indeed she did and now our house is the place where we are creating memories for our own kids.

What makes this house unique

We had this house custom built and we were involved intimately in the design process. We like clean and simple designs and we chose design accents that are reflective of the Adirondack sense of place. We particularly love the great room and open kitchen space, and its soaring wood ceiling and huge picture window looking out to Whiteface Mountain. Despite its volume, it still has a cozy feel. We love to wake up in the morning, get a cup of coffee, and sit in the window seat or in front of the fireplace and enjoy a good book.

Beautiful home, gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at Red Oak Lodge several times, and whenever we've left, we've looked forward to our return. The place is extremely comfortable and beautifully furnished. The views out of the living room windows of Whiteface Mountain are breathtaking. The house is always very clean, and there are plenty of extra towels, linens and pillows available. We come up for cross-country skiing, and excellent facilities are only about 20 minutes away. The towns of Keene and Keene Valley are adorable, with very nice restaurants and bakeries. If you want to relax and poke around, there are some cute shops nearby. All in all, we highly recommend Red Oak Lodge to anyone who enjoys an Adirondack getaway.

Well-designed comfort

  • 5 of 5
This house was the perfect base for a lovely long weekend in the high peaks region with extended family. 6 adults and 2 kids (6 & 3 yrs old) had plenty of room; beds and other furnishings were of high quality and comfortable. The kids loved the "kids room" on the upper floor, which was filled with stuffed animals and books (also included a night-light and its own en-suite bathroom). We all appreciated the "family room" on the lower floor, which was well stocked with board games, puzzles and a huge selection of movies (VHS) for both kids and adults. The home was clean and well-maintained, so we felt at ease immediately upon arrival. We hope to visit again! (NB - it seemed like it would be wonderfully cozy for a winter visit, but as they mention in the property description, you would really need a 4wd vehicle, probably w/ snow chains, as the gravel road to the property is fairly steep in places).

Wonderful place in the Adirondacks

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I have rented the Red Oak Lodge for the last three summers for stays of three or four weeks, and each year we can't wait to return. It is a beautiful house with many luxurious touches in a spectacular setting. Surrounded by meadows and forests, it overlooks a pastoral valley with views of Whiteface, the Sentinel Range and the Jay range. It is a secluded spot where all you hear are the trees, birds and wildlife. Turkeys, deer, and the occasional coyote pass through the blackberry bushes and old apple trees. While there, I make sure I am up to see the sun rise over Jay Mt. and see the sun's rays hit the summit of Whiteface, as I sip coffee on the huge deck. Large windows look out from every room at the surrounding beauty. Each room has its own bathroom and there are many spaces to sit and relax. For my own diverse group , it is perfect. After a day's hiking we relax on the deck or sit in the window seat reading and enjoying the beautiful decor of the open great room/dining/kitchen area. I have rented in the Adirondacks on and off for the last thirty years. This place is the best! Unlike other places where we had to clean and put things in order before we could enjoy it, this house was perfect from the moment we walked in the door. We hope to return again next summer and if time allows enjoy it in winter .
