  • Description

    Not available until mid October. Rocky River Retreat is a finished, ground floor studio under Rocky River Chalet, featuring queen sized bed, kitchen, bath, fireplace, wi-fi and flat screen TV, on 10 private acres along the West Branch of the Ausable River. Rocky River Chalet is 3 miles from the Whiteface Olympic ski center, near High Peaks hiking trails & has 600 feet of river front, prime territory for your avid fly fisherman.

    If your family loves the Retreat, but would require a larger, rental, look at the listing for Rocky River Chalet and Retreat. The river is a pleasant walk away through a landscaped, wooded yard, & a relaxing spot to take your morning coffee, or watch the shades of evening draw on. A large camp fire pit completes a romantic getaway. A hot tub was added last Spring.

    Runners, cyclists, cross-country skiers & hikers will run out of time, long before they run out of stunning mountain vistas to enrich their exercise, which is a major reason Ironman is held here every July. When your busy vacation day fades to dusk, there are several fine restaurants within a mile or so of Rocky River Retreat, & if you want to make a full night of it, the Olympic Village of Lake Placid beckons, 12 miles away through the Wilmington notch along the Ausable River, one of the most beautiful drives in America. Don't forget your camera, as wildlife sightings include bobcat, red fox, fisher, the harmless Adirondack black bear & moose. If you don't see any of them, Guests are welcome to visit the nearby Adirondack Wildlife Refuge & Rehabilitation Center, where friends & family can meet and learn all about grey wolves, coyotes, fox, bobcat, bald eagle & other birds of prey. You can even use their canoes & kayaks on Lake Everest. This is a relaxing cabin, where you will put your busy careers on hold, spend quality time with friends & family, & renew yourselves, surrounded by the incomparable beauty of the Adirondack Mountains. House-trained dogs are welcome, as long as owner brings crate, & agrees that dog will be crated, whenever dog's owner is not in the house. Absolutely no smoking indoors.
