South Schroon lodge description

Your vacation home is Running Deer Lodge, a lovely cedar log cabin chalet on the edge of one of the most private and secluded lakes in this wilderness park. See more deer, beaver, osprey and loons, than you will people. Authentic furnishings in a Great Camp tradition throughout. Three bedrooms (and an overflow sofa bed in the lower den), enough for two families and children. A wall of glass opens the cathedral ceiling living/dining area to the lake, mountain views, and sunsets. Fully equipped modern kitchen, a den, 3 boats, 1 kayak, dock and float.
We have been told that this is one of the most attractive camps in the Adirondacks available for rent. Furnished and decorated in the best style (J. S. Crew asked to shoot their summer catalog here). Many of our guests come back year after year. The kids especially love it.


Guest comments: Hi Rod, Wow did we have a wonderful stay at Running Deer! The nice thing is having family members drop by for a day or so and sharing in their amazement at how beautiful the place is. Enjoy the rest of your summer, Thanks, S. D. 2007

Rod, A wonderful week! Everything was just great, the weather, lodge, all the wildlife (beaver, bald eagles, loons, heron), and especially the fishing! Lots of bass (a few 5 lb+) and two huge pike 36'-328.' Looking forward to next year. Thanks again, J. M. 2007

These two letters are characteristic of those we receive each year. Rod Blackburn

                  Running Deer Lodge has often been called an 'Adirondack dream come true, even better than the pictures' by guests (who often repeat). So it is a good idea to get your choice week by reserving early, beginning after Labor Day

                  Secluded, yet just minutes to one hour from all the great Adirondack attractions. Lake George (Great Escape), Lake Placid (Olympics), Fort Ticonderoga, High Peaks region, Blue Mountain Lake (Adirondack Museum), and much more.

                  Fine dining, shopping, movies, at nearby Schroon Lake Village. Thurman Pond is a 3/4 mile private lake (only 7 camps) so it has exceptional fishing (6lb bass, 30'+ pike) and swimming.
