I recently had the pleasure to stay at the Dartbrook Lodge in Keene, NY. What a wonderful spot - for many reasons. First, it is situated in the middle of Keene, which is a lovely New England village nestled in a valley among the high peaks of the Adirondack mountains. The village has several great shops which have the greatest gifts for all those you have left at home as well as furniture for your own lodge back home.
The Dartbrook Lodge is a series of small and medium sized cabins that perch between the village and the Dart Brook. Each cabin has from one to three suites, each one more wonderful than the next. There are one, two and three bedroom suites. They all have the distinct Adirondack vernacular which includes twig furniture and architectural details, Persian or Indian rugs and wonderful heavy blankets and comforters. The bathrooms are well appointed with modern fixtures in the old tradition together with delicious soaps made with natural products from a local store. Of course the towels and linens are top notch. They are all so cozy!
I had the good fortune to meet the owners of Dartbrook Lodge who could not have been more kind and welcoming. They bent over backwards to ensure our stay was comfortable and enjoyable. They gave us ideas of things to do in the area, as well as places to eat. They very kindly showed me a couple of the other, unoccupied rooms so I got a good sense of their style and tastes which are impeccable.
I cannot wait to return! It is better than I could have ever imagined in the unique and wonderful Adirondacks - almost like having our own “great camp” in the style of the late 19th century but with the comforts of the 21st.
