Owl's Head Cabin is a quiet, private 40 acre retreat in the Adirondack High Peaks, directly surrounded by the 23,100-acre Giant Mountain Wilderness Forest Preserve. The cabin is located halfway between Elizabethtown and Keene Valley. Relax on the deck overlooking the brook, hike nearby trails, or dine at excellent local restaurants. Great for family vacations, couples getaway, or hiking base camp.

The space
SUMMER MONTHS CHECK-IN ONLY ALLOWED ON SUNDAYS FOR 6 NIGHTS. Owl's Head Cabin is a 4 season vacation rental house. During summer months, the property is available only for 6 night weeks, Sunday to Saturday. There is a 2 night minimum stay for the rest of the year. The house is set back from the road in the woods, so it is very quiet, private and peaceful. The downstairs bedroom has a queen size bed, and an upstairs loft has both one queen bed and one single bed. The full bathroom is downstairs with a shower. The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking. No meals are provided. There is a screened in porch, furnished in summer and fall, for sitting and sleeping, with a futon double bed/couch and an open deck with a grill, table and chairs. The cabin rents with linens for the 3 beds, and 5 sets of bath towels.

Live in Upstate New York with our two sons. We love all things ADK: hiking, mountain climbing, camping, canoeing, skiing, snowshoeing, relaxing by the fire or reading by the babbling brook.
