“Clearly the best choice in Keene Valley”
Reviewed 2 September 2010

Very cute house, driving up you are not disappointed. Extremely laid back way of life here - your key to your room is left in your door, staff available by phone if you need them any time other than breakfast. Great breakfast, homemade oatmeal with lots of toppings to choose from, good coffee, and amazing homemade muffins each morning. Very hearty and perfect for the day ahead. We were there two nights, only real issue was the shower - couldn't get it to work 100% out of the shower head, so you stood in standing water the whole time. We got over it though, definitely the best place that we saw to stay in the area by far. Staff was helpful at breakfast giving us ideas of what to do that day, as well as letting us use their computer to check in for our flight - always appreciated!

We stayed here several times before we had our baby and loved it. Now we go back once or twice a year with our 2 year old and he loves it too! The rooms are clean and cozy, and the inn keepers so friendly I feel like I have known then for years. Breakfasts are delectable!

We stayed here right before heading off to our wedding in Italy as a pre-honeymoon retreat before the madness. It was more than I could have hoped for and much better than photos had made it seem online. It was very cozy, great decor and everything you might imagine in your mind of what a bed and breakfast should look and feel like. As a matter of fact, to date, it is the best one I think I've ever stayed at. Typically with most places, I view it as only a place to sleep, but you really feel so at home there that you want to stay in the house and linger around the nooks and crannies as part of your vacation, because it has so much character. They have a large wrap-around outdoor porch with comfortable rocking chairs too.

We had arrived mid-week so we almost had the whole house to ourselves, we stood up with tea and played chess by the window and read some books. We also took some incredible and memorable hikes close by. Wonderful waterfalls and the high peaks mountains are literally breath-taking. If and when I return to the Adirondacks, I will definitely return to the Keane Valley lodge.

Also run by a very loving couple who will take good care of you and prepare a great breakfast. The owner even makes the bread and muffins from scratch. Delicious!

We left it quite late to try and find accommodation for our short break snowshoeing in the Adirondacks and after fruitlessly searching the internet for places to stay near some of the trail heads in the Lake Placid region, we happened to read the reviews of this guest house by other tripadvisor reviews and immediately 'phoned from Ireland to make a reservation.

The reviews turned out to be totally accurate. We were lucky enough to get the spacious Notman Suite for our long weekend which comes equipped with a kitchen, lounge/dining room, bedroom and en suite bathroom complete with large bath tub. This was ideal for us as we could cook our own meals at odd times (rising before dawn and getting back quite late after snoeshoeing long trails). The kitchen was extremely well appointed with absolutely everything you needed, a real home from home. The decor in this large wooden house is typically American, with colourful quilts, drapes, rugs, cushions, cottage style furniture and lots of pictures depicting the natural history and heritage of the Adirondack Mountains. Our rooms were kept wonderfully warm by a cast iron stove and there was plenty of piping hot water.

Breakfast was incredible, with a fantastic choice that would surely suit all. Cereal, including organic porridge oats with maple syrup, scrambled eggs that tasted divine, homemade bread and blueberry muffins, yoghurt, fresh fruit and lashings of real hot coffee, served in a lovely country dining room with check table cloths, provided a great start to each day.

Although the Notman Suite had a lounge, we enjoyed sitting in the beautifully furnished lounge just off the front porch in the main part of the house in the evenings, where a huge log fire threw out a welcome glow and plenty of warmth. In such a homely atmosphere it was incredibly relaxing to sit in front of the fire with a single malt and enjoy the company of other guests, some of whom we have stayed in touch with.

George, the proprietor, gave us tip top information about a short snowshoe trail with great views a few minutes away (Rooster Comb) to do on our first half day. This turned out to be great advice as it was a sound practice run before climbing Mount Marcy the next day. We also loved the fact that the Mountaineer (outdoor shop) was just down the road.

Unlike many American guest houses I've stayed in, there is nothing kitsch about Keene Valley Lodge which is an authentic and cosy mountain area residence. The propietors are very well travelled themselves and it shows. They know exactly how to welcome and look after their guests, many of whom keep on coming back time and time again. When next in the Adirondacks, this is the only place we will want to stay.

We were only there for one night, but we booked their last room available, number 7, which was very quiet and facing the back. After a 3+ hour travel, and a 3+ hour cross country ski outing, we were delighted to arrive to a cozy, warm, quiet room with a larger-than-life bath tub. A hot bubble bath quickly followed.

The common area welcomes you with a piano & library room, adjacent to a romantic fireplace.

We had a ten-hour night which ended when the delightful yet strong aroma of freshly brewed, kick-your-butt coffee came up from the kitchen For breakfast, we were greeted with homemade oatmeal, with nuts and dried fruits, granola & yogourt, homemade lots-of-blueberries muffins, scrambled eggs, fresh bread with choices of jams and peanut butter. The breakfast ended when our stomachs said "Enough!". However, a battle between our taste buds and our stomachs ensued... and the taste buds won! As a result, we had plenty of energy to enjoy another day filled with hours of winter fun before returning home, truly satisfied.

We have stayed at this location many times (and have also visited other B&Bs in the Keene Valley area). We will return because of the wonderful. knowledgeable inn keepers and the feeling of being at home in the inn. We rented a suite with kitchen and a private deck. The rooms are comfortable, clean and everytime we come, we notice that the room has been updated in some way. The Lodge is walking distance from the Garden trailhead (or you can flag down the shuttle as we did!). I wish there were more dining opportunities within walking distance, but otherwise, a perfect exerience.

My friends & I come to the lodge every year for a weekend of hiking & biking & we have never been disappointed. We love the lodge so much we wouldn't even think of staying anyplace else- everything from the fabulous breakfasts, the Adirondack decor & wonderful fireplace, the laidback atmosphere & the friendly innkeepers who never fail to give us helpful info on hiking & biking routes. Can't wait to come back next year!
