About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 1.5 Baths (Sleeps 8 in beds, space for 4 sleeping bags)

Enjoy over 1250 feet of private access on the famous East branch of the AuSable River while you stay in this newly-renovated Adirondack home. This river is world-renowned for its fly fishing enjoyment. The wide expanse with pools, rocks and deep open areas provides exciting trout action. A secluded private beach is a special feature of our property.

Originally constructed in 1840, this home has pine walls, hardwood floors and rustic decor that compliment the natural surroundings. This non-smoking home, has a large eat-in kitchen, three br, living room and den with plenty of room for large families. Roam over five acres that include open meadow, pine forest or sit on the covered porch to enjoy the sound and sight of rushing water.

On this site is a 24' x 26' barn. A quiet road lends easy access to property. New York State land directly across from the property protects the privacy of fishermen, swimmers and sunbathers. The shoreline has sandy beach areas and is large enough for setting up a tent, blankets for a picnic and reclining in lounge chairs. The property is along Ironman Bike course. We are located on the Keene/Upper Jay border.

Set in the high peaks, many recreational activities are nearby and can be enjoyed year round. For fishing, hiking, canoeing, tubing, rock climbing, biking, hunting, golfing, horseback riding etc., this is a great spot.

Mount Von Hovenberg and Whiteface Mountain Olympic venues are just 15 minutes away. Convenient to the quaint village of Lake Placid and the Olympic Center Complex, just 20 minutes away. International airports at Montreal, Canada, Albany, New York and Burlington Vt, are less than 2 hours away by car. Lake Champlain and the ferries to Vermont less than 40 minutes to the East.

We have stayed at River House 3 years in a row now, and it is always a great time! The house is situated right where we want to be (in the heart of the High Peaks region) and even though it is easily accessible from 9N, it feels secluded. We rarely see other people while we are there.

The house itself has everything we could want - particularly a fully functional kitchen and enough beds for friends to join us. Add in the porch, the fire pit, and the private river access (with a sandy beach), and it is a little slice of heaven. Already looking forward to returning in 2018...!

Nice property, conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. We had four adults, a three year old child, and two dogs, and there was plenty of room for everyone. Beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked with essentials. We loved swimming in the stream -- cold but refreshing. The location was perfect for trips to Lake Placid, Whiteface, and various hikes in the region. Would happily return for another stay.

Always the Best!

  • 5 of 5

This is our fourth or fifth time renting the cottage. What a wonderful place! We are a group of girls from Canada who do a yearly hiking trip in the Adirondacks and when we arrive at the cottage, everything is so perfect for our stay. It is absolutely spotlessly clean and everything you could ask for is provided. A few steps away is the river where we soak ourselves after an exhausting day. There is room to spread out inside the cottage or the lovely porch also. Close to Keene for hiking and close to Ausable Forks (where we prefer to get groceries vs. Lake Placid). Couldn't ask for a better property than this one. Thanks for providing this gorgeous spot!

Relaxing family fun!

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised that we were able to enjoy a lot of our vacation right at the cabin. We played quite a few games that we brought with us and also checkers on the table in the living room area. It was also very convenient to have the river right across the roadway from our cabin. The river had some deeper areas in it where the kids were able to cool off swimming and go rock hunting. There was a nice sandy beach right on the property, I only wish that we had room to bring some folding chairs with us to use around the camp fire and on the beach. The cabin was nicely renovated for an older home. There were many conveinences such as newer appliances, paper products and kitchen condiments. The only thing that was frustrating (which could have been user errror) is we could not get our movie to play on the DVD player. The television was super tiny and there were very few stations to chose from, luckily we were not there to watch television!! We visited Little Whiteface, about 12 minutes away and took a ride up the mountain on the Gondola...gorgeous views!! We also took a trip to Mirror Lake to do some Kayaking and check out the shops. Overall, we had a very pleasant and memorable experience!! We would definitely stay at The Riverhouse again!!
