Enter the magical world of Yurts and the High Peaks! Stay in our Ranier Yurt with hiking and snowshoeing right on the property and close access to the adventures and romance of the High Peaks region. Have breakfast gazing at Giant Mountain and then take a short climb to the upper property for views of Elizabethtown and many other peaks. You feel deep in the woods with only the sounds of nature to soothe you yet you're a mile from town. If you have never stayed in a Yurt you will be enchanted with living 'in the round' - windows are all around you and you peer up through the enormous dome to see the treetops, stars and moonlight. The Yurt stays warm and dry in any weather - from 30 below to hurricane winds. Lincoln Pond is 15 minutes away for lake swimming but there is a secret swimming hole right around the corner. Put your kayak in at Lake Champlain in Westport. Hospital, grocery store, drug store are 5 minutes away. Autumn and Winter are gorgeous. More information on our Adirondack Yurt: The Yurt is heated with a large propane heater which together with the ceiling fan keeps the place warm in even the coldest Adirondack winters. In the summer the dome, french doors and windows open to cool the place down. Although the yurt is fully inspected and equipped with smoke alarms, smoking inside is ABSOLUTELY prohibited and will result in the loss of the security deposit. We have a full compliment of maps and guides for nearby hiking trails and we made a list of our favourite trails. The road up to the Yurt is approx 300' and is dirt but easily accessible with any car in the summer. In the winter a four-wheel vehicle is preferable. Our land is surrounded by 85 acres and we have permission to hike/snowshoe/ski on it. The views are incredible. We will NOT allow any parties that will hunt, snowmobile or drive motorized vehicles on the property. We have satellite TV free of charge and a large collection of movies at the property. There's a great firepit and endless wood for marshmallows. The surrounding area: The High Peaks area of the Adirondacks is known as one of the most beatiful landscapes on the planet. Elizabethtown is uniquely situated 15 minutes east of Keene Valley and 15 minutes west of Lake Champlain. Hike one day and kayak the next. Lake Placid, Saranac Lake and Whiteface Mountain are a short drive away. You can easily walk or ride a bike into town for groceries, hardwares or the drug store, pizza, and a great restaurant. In the surrounding villages of Westport, Essex, Keene Valley and Keene you'll find high-end eateries and shops, the famous Mountaineer Outdoor Store, a great gym and bakery, farmers markets, etc. Adventerous souls can take the ferry in Essex across the lake to Burlington, VT. Lincoln Pond is a great state park and only 10 minutes away. There, for a fee, you can spend the day at the beach, boating and swimming. Other Policies: We are very selective about the friends and 'friends to be' that we allow to rent our Yurt. It is best as a retreat for a couple with children or two couples but no more than four people will feel comfortable here.
