Our favorite place.

5 on October 18, 2017

We love the welcoming atmosphere, delicious and hearty food, clean and tidy spaces, and like-minded guests. We have struck up conversations with friendly, warm and engaging guests at breakfast. We love the immediate access to hiking trails and comfortable porch and sitting areas. This is our go-to vacation spot.


Charming and homey

4.4 on October 16, 2017

Room was spacious, well appointed, clean. Felt like home. Great place to relax and recover after climbing a mountain. Loved having our very own fireplace in the room. Owners were very accommodating and allowed us to bring our 2 (well-behaved) dogs. Breakfast service was excellent and food was delicious. Would definitely return!


Wonderful stay in Keene Valley

Rustic but well-maintained lodge right in Keene. A wonderful breakfast, served in a lovely dining room, prepared us well for the rigors of our backpacking trip. I'll look forward to visiting again when next in the high peaks region!


Blueberry Cottage is Amazing

5 on October 04, 2017

This place was just lovely. Spacious, beautiful views, nice porch, a fantastic and large whirlpool gun perfect for soaking in after long high peak mountain hikes, and all the amenities in the very modernized and clean kitchen. Went up with 5 friends. We had a blast and hope to make this an annual thing at the blueberry cottage. This exceeded our expectations!!


Lovely stay at Trail's End Inn

We stayed in Haystack room the large garage apartment. Very private, a lot of space, and nice kitchenette for guest use. Temperatures fluctuated significantly so we had opportunity to use both the air conditioner and gas fireplace and were very comfortable. My partner is vegan. The tofu scramble she received for breakfast was very good, but the muffins were less so. Vegan is challenging to provide for, and they made a good effort. Breakfasts are heavy on simple carbs and sugar. I opted for scrambled eggs which were very good. Fruit and muffins were delicious.


Short stay, but great experience.

I was looking for a place to stay while on business in the area. Trail's End Inn met my needs and exceeded expectations. I only wish I could have stayed a little longer for pleasure as the area has lots to do. A bonus was that two restaurants are in walking distance for an evening meal. The breakfast was excellent. Will return if I get the chance.


A Favorite Adirondack Destination!

5 on September 06, 2017

Trails End Inn is our family's favorite destination. The rooms are lovely. This time we stayed in a suite which was helpful w/ all our camping gear. We also love the rooms with sleeping porches. The breakfasts are delicious and especially enjoyed after a hiking trip. Afternoon cookies are a special treat. The owners Susan & Dave are both thoughtful and also very accommodating. Cannot wait to go back again!


A few days hiking based at Trails End Inn

4.2 on August 29, 2017

One of my regular spots to stay at while hiking. Spacious comfortable rooms, solid breakfasts, and trail lunches available. Thoughtful touches for hikers, such as the availability of the mud-room with shower for your use late on the day of your departure. A convenient, dependable, low-key place to stay.


Lovely room

3.4 on August 27, 2017

The room was very comfortable and the shower pressure excellent. Towels were a bit worn, and thee was no cup for the bathroom. Breakfast was very good and the service people great; the accommodated a special request with no problem. All in all, good value for the price.


Fantastic setting in the High Peaks

4.8 on August 26, 2017

We had a very nice stay at Trails End. Keene Valley was a great location to set off on two day hikes into the mountains this past week. But my one of my favorite moments was sitting on the huge front porch during our rest day, relaxing with a newspaper.
