About the property

5 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath, stunning view of Giant mountain, borders Slide Brook

If you've ever dreamed of rising in the morning, flinging open the curtains and gazing out at the mountain view from your tower window, you've found your place! Stone Tower Lodge offers that magical mountain experience without traveling to Europe!

Nestled in the heart of the Adirondack High Peaks, this unique home blends the best of old and new to make your stay memorable. While the rich hardwoods, elegant furnishings and stunning artwork evoke the ambiance of another era, don't worry! All of your modern favorites are here as well, with five beautifully appointed bedrooms, 2 1/2 modern baths, a fully stocked kitchen, outdoor grill, washer and dryer and free Wifi so you can post pictures to make friends and family jealous!

Your woodland retreat is located in a private, breath-taking setting just outside of Keene Valley, NY. There is so much to do nearby with hundreds of miles of Adirondack hiking trails, lakes, waterfalls and the beautiful Ausable River, quaint art galleries, one-of-a-kind shops and fresh markets where you can gather locally grown food for your dinner. Stay at home and cross the footbridge to splash in beautiful Slide Brook or spend a lazy afternoon reading on the porch. Stone Tower Lodge represents all that this magical region offers in beauty and adventure. Here one truly feels a part of a real Adirondack lifestyle.

Your mountain retreat features 5 beautiful bedrooms - three with queen beds, two with twins and another sleeper sofa in the great room. While every room is lovely, there's no doubt you'll have to draw straws to see who gets to sleep in the tower bedroom - adding a touch of magic to your stay.

The kitchen is conveniently furnished with pots, pans, and full place settings to create nourishing meals. Enjoy your morning coffee in the breakfast nook with a view into the woods and your evening feast in the magnificent dining room that seats 10 or more - perfect for family board games after dinner.

You'll want to spend a lot of time enjoying the spacious porch with its personal view of Giant Mountain. Ample seating includes multiple Adirondack chairs and several tables. A family-size grill is perfect for keeping an eye on your sizzling steaks as well as the children playing on the lawn below.

On rainy days, one of the most stunning features of Stone Tower Lodge is the great room with its massive fireplace and sumptuous seating. Here, you can spend time with those you love watching a movie, sipping your favorite drink by the fire or curling up with a good book. When your day is done, fall asleep to the soothing song of Slide Brook through the open window.

Stone Tower Lodge will carry you worlds away from the stress of life, but a short 5-10 minute drive will return you to the charming hamlets of Keene Valley and Keene where you will find 5 delicious dining options, a gas station and convenience store, an "old-time" general and grocery store, farmer's market, several bakeries, a coffee shop and unique stores showcasing local craftsmen's wares. For day trip adventures, Stone Tower Lodge is conveniently located near Lake Placid, Whiteface Mountain, the Ironman course, Ausable Chasm, Fort Ticonderoga, Lake Champlain and many other Adirondack attractions.

If you're looking for an Adirondack getaway that you can't find just anywhere, Stone Tower Lodge is your place. Your family will make memories to last a lifetime in this beautiful space.

Beautiful, hidden getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I came up here this past weekend with my parents, older siblings and my niece/nephew and had such a great time! The house has an old ADK camp feel and is very cozy. Could have sat out on the porch all weekend and listened to the rain....oh and the foliage was pretty great in the high peaks too! Will definitely be back for another stay :)

Hard to leave a great place!

  • 5 of 5

My group from the NYC area maxed out this house. We really love Stone Tower Lodge and there was more than enough room to move around. It had everything we needed and everybody agreed, it was our home away from home.

There's so much to see in the Adirondacks and it was a comfort to know we had such a wonderful place to relax in. I would have been happy enough to just hang around the house myself.

The ground's and everywhere in the house was totally clean - no musty smells (my wife would have complained if there was).

Most of the time I spoke to Amy and she even answered the phone late one night due to an issue that popped up - the issue resolved itself. It was nice to have someone's reassurance. We look forward to another stay!!

Amazing House, Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5

The house, and property were nothing shy of perfect! Amy was an amazing host who I have had the pleasure of staying with more than once, on more than one property. The house accommodated our large party and supplied a spectacular view during our stay. Thanks again for the open arms and hospitality.

Peaceful Adirondack Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a terrific house for a long weekend getaway with my extended family. We had 10 people stay for 5 nights and everyone enjoyed a comfortable stay. The house itself has a lovely rustic feel to the decor and surroundings, while still providing ample comforts, and is fully furnished and stocked with everything from linens to kitchen equipment, Wi-fi to washing machine, pantry staples and more. It's roomy enough for 10 people to spread out - even on our one rainy day, no one felt crowded or cooped up. We loved grilling and relaxing on the huge porch with a nice view of Giant Mountain and the peaceful sounds of John's Brook nearby. The location feels secluded and private, with no other houses in sight and minimal road noise, yet is just minutes from the charming town of Keene Valley, and a few minutes further from Keene; between the two towns you can find virtually anything you need, from gas to groceries to gear. Great proximity to hiking for all ages and ability levels; a few swimming holes nearby; restaurants in town; and just a short drive from Lake Placid if you're looking for less rural activities. The property owners were friendly and helpful in making sure we enjoyed our stay. We are hoping to return again in the future. Highly recommended!
