This is a wonderful, low-key, well-established inn in a perfect location at the edge of the woods, a 5-15 minute walk from everything -- including many trail heads as well as the few stores and eating establishments -- in Keene Valley. Friendly, but guests treat the place as their own and come and go accordingly. Simple but very comfortable. Very quiet even when full, so it really has the feel of one's own vacaton home.
Have stayed here twice, and both times totally impressed with the quality, warmth, hospitality of the experience. Informal, yet efficient. Beautiful setting, lovely dining room, and comfortable public spaces. Breakfast is great!
A beautiful rustic nest at the foot of the Adirondack High Peaks. Service is more than awesome! Breakfast is delicious! You will totally enjoy the feeling of living in an old building located in the middle of a quiet nature. Will return for sure!
Keene Valley was the perfect locale for a quiet stay at Trail's End Inn, in the Adirondacks. Everything about the Inn was lovely. Breakfast was nicely presented; perhaps offer an option of fruit and yogurt OR the pancake (carb) breakfast for those who want a lighter start for the day.
Trail's End Inn was delightful. Very charming atmosphere. Home-made cookies set out every afternoon to accompany tea coffee or hot chocolate. Very accommodating owners - they provided excellent advice on where to hike and adapted their breakfast menu to fit my husband's diet. Wish we were still there.
It had been too long since our last visit to the Trails End Inn. As always, we were comfortable, well fed and relaxed. Even our family dog was welcomed appropriately with cookies of his own upon arrival! We will be back soon!
Our stay in the room called "Passages" was perfect. Amy and Wayne made us feel right at home in their home. And the location is ideal for hiking or leaf peeping in the High Peaks, fishing the Ausable River, touring Lake Placid or relaxing on their porch.
We recently spent a wonderful 2 nights at Trails End right after Labor Day. The sleeping porch was fantastic, everyone should experience that at least once. The breakfast was over the top excellent, everyone was very helpful, and the whole operation seemed well thought-through. This is wonderful rambling old inn that has been modernized without losing its charm.
We stayed at the Blueberry cottage. It was clean and ready for us when we arrived. They set up a few air mattresses to accommodate our entire party. We hiked Mt. Marcy and it was great to have hiked 8+ hours and be able to take a hot shower afterwards. I highly recommend this location for a clean and safe place to stay if your heading to the Adirondacks for some hiking.
Looking for a quiet weekend getaway in the High Peaks, my wife and I enjoyed another visit to the Trails End Inn. Nice being away from "busy" Lake Placid. Breakfast was great as usual. Stayed in Gothics room. Modern and clean. Keep the cookies coming!
My wife and I have been making visits to our 'sanctuary' for many years, and in all seasons. Susan and Dave are consummate hosts, and have gone to great lengths to create an atmosphere of peace and serenity. Plus, breakfasts are beyond comparison. The Sturdevants
We have been staying at Trails End for years and had another great visit last week. We spent some of our time hiking and some just reading on the front porch or in the sitting room. It's a very cozy setting - with a filling breakfast, and cookies in the afternoon. Add to that the beautiful surroundings, and it's a vacation that we are looking forward to again next summer.
Rooms are beautiful, many with spacious sleeping porches. Two restaurants within walking distance. Owners are very accommodating. For example they allow guests to take a shower after their hike even if they have checked out.
Stayed here in mid-July 2016 with friends. Only wish we could have spent more time - this is a fine inn with every amenity you could want after a nice hike in the High Peaks back country. The proprietors have done a really nice job creating a relaxed setting. The breakfast offerings are outstanding - don't leave without trying the scones!
We were looking for a place to stay as a family with a dog who wanted to go hiking. We stayed in a two-room suite which was perfect for our family. It was spacious and nice. The breakfast was delicious and hearty. The location is very convenient for great hiking! We hope to return to the Trails End Inn.
Are you reluctant to travel or get away because you tire of trying to find, check-in/out, deal with hotel management/administration issues? At times, for my planning, it's sometimes comes down to the last item or at times the item we dial from the car given all the other details are in our control and can plow through or enjoy the planning. Trails End Inn was a pleasant find and one that I will keep in my pocket for anytime I am I am in or near the Keene/Adirondack area. I reserved a room online, after checking the availability. I had a quick email chat (which was more of a one way from TEI as they seemed to read my mind in what I was looking for, so I didn't object) and showed up at Trails End Inn on our schedule. Check-in and out was absolutely painless as it is self-serve (instructions are posted on the door and at the check-in book). As long as there is availability (check online), you can show up "just in time" and choose any room available. Plenty of activities at the Inn if your loitering on a rainy day, for example, or you love to hang out. There is a time to vacate the room, but not the Inn, so no pressure--box you a lunch if you would like. It's right in the town of Keene, which provides the best mountaineering store in the region, a small grocery and other small shops to browse. Great place! I have friends who will be heading to the Adirondacks in the fall and have told them about this place. It's a great find.
We love Trail's End. Dave, Susan, and Sherry are so welcoming. The setting is beautiful, the rooms are small but lovely and comfortable, and there are always interesting people to meet over breakfast or evening cookies. The breakfast is scrumptious, and the hosts are meticulous about dietary or allergy concerns. My one caution: This is not a place for folks who like to sleep late... the walls are very thin, and guests tend to get up early to hike, paddle, or whatever.
