vacation rental description

The Icehouse is located near Whiteface Mountain Ski Resort (less than 6 miles), 10 minutes from Keene and 15 from Keene Valley, and only 15-20 minutes by car from Lake Placid. We think it's close enough to all the local attractions and amenities while maintaining a safe distance to everyday-life!

The historic 19th century property derives its name from its original purpose - it was built to store blocks of ice during the warmer months of the year that had been brought down from the nearby mountains. The ice kept food for visitors to the nearby Wellscroft Lodge (built by the Wells family of Wells Fargo) cool and fresh (and probably ended up in the odd cocktail here and there).

The building has been lovingly restored over the past few years and been transformed into a spacious home with a welcoming and warm atmosphere.

Many original features have been conserved, and any contemporary additions were carefully planned, using mostly reclaimed local wood and ecologically sourced materials to create a comfortable and unique living space.

The inside has been decorated to combine old and new in harmonious ways, offering guests the experience of simple cabin-living in the Adirondack wilderness in the most comfortable style!

Great care that has gone into every little detail: from the more obvious like the hand-cut red hardwood flooring in parts of the building and the custom-made windows set into the original wood-panelled walls to the more subtle touches like a sheepskin-rug on the Adirondack rocking chair by the antique fireplace, or the high-quality bedding on the comfortable beds; from the professional-grade cooker to the family-size stainless steel fridge in the kitchen - everything has its own aesthetic and functional purpose and contributes to the simple, intimate and warm atmosphere of the building.

The Icehouse is surrounded by nearly a thousand acres of privately owned land, and offers miles of hiking trails leading into the forests and up into the two mountains that belong to the house.

PLEASE GET IN TOUCH FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION AND PICTURES as the space on this website is limited.

cabin rental amenities

The Icehouse has two bedrooms on the 1st floor and comfortably sleeps four to five people, but additional beds can be arranged to accomodate a total of six people.
Cotbeds for the youngest guests can also be provided upon request.
The mattresses, European-style bedding and towels are all new and of very high quality.


The open plan kitchen features a beautiful antique French porcelain sink, a large professional cooker, as well as a large fridge/ freezer, dishwasher, and a professional grade laundry machine and dryer. It is generously equipped with high quality pots and pans and all necessary cooking equipment that should satisfy even the more demanding cook! We also have a barbecue set available and a fire pitch in a field close by.

There is a hairdryer and emergency toiletries in the bathroom, as well as a first-aid kit.

Snowshoes and canoe usage can be arranged prior to arrival.

Wi-fi is available without extra charge, and an emergency phone line is also in place. If you would like to make non-local calls you will need a call card (for example bizon)


In the cold months, a thermostat controlled furnace and gas-fire keep the building very warm and comfortable.

The house is serviced frequently and the road leading up to the property is ploughed regularly in the winter time.


Out of consideration for the environment there is no jaccuzzi and no bathtub at the Icehouse.

NB:

Please let us know exactly how many people will be staying - should we find that the number exceeds the one agreed prior to arrival we will withold the security deposit unless there is very good reason (eg family emergency) for this.

25% security deposit payable on booking. We hold the 25% deposit for any major breakages/ damages/ missing items and return it to you after your departure within 48 hrs. Full cost of booking payable prior to arrival unless agreed otherwise.

Payment can be made via Paypal, Bank Transfer or - if previously arranged - by cash to the caretaker.

Check in usually after 12.00 on day of arrival, check out before 12.00 on day of departure (this can be negotiated, of course)
