House Details

The club has rented out the entire Guide’s House as well as the Climber’s Lodge. Please note that there is no free breakfast at Rock and River as in years past but there is a full kitchen in both houses. Here is the FAQ from the website if you’d like more information on the house and details about check in/out.

The mountain village of Keene is a five minute drive, and Keene Valley, “Home of the High Peaks”, is just ten minutes away. The Olympic Village of Lake Placid with its numerous shops, restaurants, events and museums as well as Whiteface Ski Area are easily reached in just twenty minutes. It is a very short drive to the North Face of Pitchoff and you can get to Wilmington Notch (the short way) without actually having to go into Lake Placid.

Guides are available for ice climbing. Rock and River has their own ice park available for those wanting to learn to climb ice. Please call Rock and River if you have specific questions about the area and what activities are available.

Directions from the Website

“We are located just outside the village of Keene, NY in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains. Our lodge sits at the very end of Alstead Hill Lane, off route 73, between Keene and the town of Lake Placid. To find us, simply continue past the Bark Eater Inn on Alstead Hill Lane for 3 miles to the very end of the road.”
