This seasonal Lodge, on 22 acres, is located 2 miles outside of Keene. There are no neighbors in sight from the Lodge. This is a newly renovated home with five bedrooms and three full bath rooms. The master bed room is located up stairs on the north side. It has a queen bed and its own bathroom.Downstairs on the north side are two bedrooms. One has a queen bed and the other has two twin beds.They share a common bath room. Up stairs on the south side, there are two bedrooms. One has two twin beds and one has a full size bed. They share a bathroom.

The fully equipped new kitchen has a gas range, microwave, dishwasher, large refrigerator, and the usual kitchen appliances and cooking utensils.There is a second refrigerator off the dining room.

The dining room, which is open to the kitchen and living room, can comfortably seat 12 people at the new hand made pine and birch table. French doors open off the dining room onto a large deck over looking the meadow. On the deck you will find chairs to relax in, a picnic table with benches, and a gas grill.

The great room, with its vaulted ceiling, has seating for 12 people.There is a gas fireplace for those chilly nights. Upstairs on the south side there is a family room, with TV, DVD player, DVDs, games and a gas fire place for your enjoyment.The family room and the deck off the family room have a view of the Sentinel Range.

The front porch is a great place to unwind in Adirondack chairs. Step off the porch and there are 22 acres to explore. The large meadow has a fire pit with seating. There is firewood in the nearby lean-to.

There are several well marked trails which take you up Eisenglass Mountain. Along the way there are views of Hurricane Mt. and the High Peaks to the south. The trails are one of our favorite hikes to take, and is great for first time young hikers.

The woods are full of variety, color and boulders...they are a wonderful place to walk. In season, wild raspberry's abound, and on many days deer are in the meadow.

Within a short distance you can be hiking the High Peaks, swimming in any one of the nearby swimming spots, or just relaxing at one of the local restaurants.

Less than 10 minutes by car is Owls Head Mountain, which offers a good short hike with lovely views of Keene Valley and Cascade Mountain.

We are just 35 minutes from the ferry to Vermont. The ferry ride is spectacular, with views of the Adirondacks and the Green Mountains.

About James Gocker,Manager

We have lived in the Rochester area our whole life and have always enjoyed the outdoors.

James Gocker,Manager purchased this house in 2011

Why James Gocker,Manager chose Keene

Our family has vacationed in the Adirondacks for many years. We fell in love with the High Peaks area and were fortunate to acquire Rock Meadow Lodge in 2011. Since then, we have had wonderful family times making the Lodge into our home and enjoying the mountains, our children and our grandchildren. There is nothing like the peacefulness of the mountains and adventures to be found in the Adirondacks to make for great family vacation.

What makes this house unique

We were taken by Rock Meadow Lodge because of its central location, peaceful setting, acres to explore and the mountains to be seen.

A Lovely Week in the High Peaks

  • 5 of 5
Our family spent a week at Rock Meadow Lodge in August. We were excited about this venture and pleased that our expectations were exceeded. The location of the lodge in the high peaks area of the ADKS is easily accessible and glorious. Hiking, swimming and boating opportunities are nearby as is the engaging village of Lake Placid with its olympic venues to enjoy. A trip up Whiteface Mountain in the gondola is not to be missed. We were helped in planning our days by the plethora of information about the area that the owners made available. The lodge was perfect for a family gathering of 10. Each family had their own bedrooms and bathroom to share. The large family, living and dining rooms were great for our crowd. We loved cooking in the large well appointed kitchen, grilling on the back deck and making s'mores at the fire pit under the stellar ADK sky.
Not only is this property clean, well maintained and comfortable, it is gorgeous. The beautifully handmade tables throughout and obvious attention to every detail were evident. Our every need was anticipated. I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking to spend some time in this beautiful state park area.

Perfect Adirondack Weekend!

  • 5 of 5
This past weekend my wife and I went up to the Adirondack Mountains with some friends and stayed at the Rock Meadow Lodge just outside of Keene. We honestly could not have had a better time here. The lodge is absolutely amazing and is in the perfect location for every kind of activity. There are tons of great hikes a few miles away and the owner Jim has even built a short loop trail behind the lodge. The area is also amazing for rock climbing and had some great creeks and small lakes near by if you feel like a cold swim. For us the lodge was perfect. We were a small group, but the lodge could have easily slept more. One of the best parts for me was the big kitchen and dinning room table. We had a blast grilling out every night and eating big dinners together. The property itself is also a HUGE plus. The patio out front is perfect for relaxing and we had a blast playing bocce ball in the yard. All in all, it was a wonderful experience. The owners Jim and Julie could not have been nicer or more accommodating. Jim even recommended some wonderful local hikes for us. We absolutely will be returning to this wonderful place...hopefully soon.

A trip to John Brown's Farm is to see history up close. Whiteface Mountain is 12 miles away and the drive up Memorial Highway should not be missed.
