If you ever need a place to stay in the Adirondacks, you will not find a better rental than Mercy Cabin. It is inside the hamlet of Keene, so it is centrally located to Lake Placid, Wilmington (Whiteface Mountain & skiing), and all the major trailheads for hiking the high peaks. (Like hikes from the Adirondack Loj, the Garden, the Ausable Club, Giant Mountain, and even Hurricane Mountain!)
The owners provide daily wood for the fire pit, and will even fill your car tire with air if you need it. If you’ve never taken a week away from civilization, this is where you want to go.

PS – I am not affiliated with Mercy Cabin, nor did I get financial consideration for this endorsement. Just please don’t book the week we want next year. Thanks.
PPS – In case you missed the reports from our summer hikes, we climbed a total of 24 high peaks. The list: Big Slide; the Wolfjaws & Armstrong; Marcy; Gothics & Sawteeth; Street & Nye; Phelps; Rocky Peak Ridge & Giant; Skylight & Gray; Wright, Algonquin, & Iroquois; Dial & Nippletop; Dix, Hough, S. Dix, E. Dix & Macomb
