Welcome to The Hiker's Roost! We now are back in Keene Valley and living in our home for much of the year. We will open up The Hiker's Roost for reservations for summer 2017. We'll only book for one to two week stays at first. Then, starting in March 2017 we'll open up for shorter stays. Thanks for your cooperation!

Rates are for double occupancy.

Please see below for the full explanation of pricing.

If you are looking for a clean, warm place to put up your feet after a day in the mountains, the Hiker's Roost (formerly Chickadee House) is a two bedroom, comfortable base camp in the High Peaks of the Adirondacks.

The Hiker's Roost is located in the hamlet of Keene Valley. Keene Valley is the starting point for amazing mountain access into the eastern High Peaks.

We offer a vacation rental with a two night minimum. Discounts occur if you book three nights or more. Dogs are welcome!

The Hiker's Roost is available as a base camp while you explore the eastern High Peaks Region of the Adirondack Park -- whether you're here to hike along the valleys, climb the peaks, kayak or canoe the still waters, or visit the museums and other hamlets in the region.

The Hiker's Roost is a simple yet comfortable single story manufactured house with a full kitchen (stocked with dishware, cooking utensils, plates and glasses, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, etc...), washer and dryer, plus two full bathrooms (one with an extra large bath tub). You'll find a collection of mountaineering books to inspire you, as well as local hiking guides for you to borrow during your visit.

The Hiker's Roost is dog/pet friendly and has a fenced in back yard. The house is on NYS Route 73, two doors down from an wonderful local farm store (Rivermede Farm based here in Keene Valley). You will be walking distance from the Mountaineer (less than 10 minute walk) and local dining places such as the Ausable Inn (approx. 15 minute walk), and the Noonmark Diner (approx. 20 minute walk).

The Hiker's Roost is set up to be ecologically friendly. The house is painted with no-VOC paints, we use recycled paper products, and we provide ecologically safe dishwashing and clothes washing soap to protect our local environment.

Price is for double occupancy. Each additional person is $35/night. Discount of 10% if booked for three nights or more.

Check in time is 4pm.

Check out time is 11am.

Enjoy staying in the heart of the Adirondack High Peaks! Please contact us for any additional information.
