Schroon Lake Town

Car: Necessary

House is located three miles from the gorgeous town of Schroon Lake where the visitor will find everything needed to make their stay in the area most enjoyable. Schroon Lake has a great beach for swimming with magnificent views, ice cream shops, restaurants, bars, groceries and coffee shops, as well as hiking trails all around the area. The town has a boat launch as well as a marina where canoes and kayaks can be rented on an hourly and daily basis. The house is located on a very quiet road with trails off the property, where the visitor can really enjoy the peace and quiet of the Adirondacks, and decompress from life's usually frantic pace. This is a wonderful spot to unwind, but also accessable to lots of hiking, boating and fishing in the nearby lakes.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2011

About: We had this house built so we could eventually retire to Schroon Lake. We wanted to make it an energy-efficient house, so we had solar panels installed. We absolutely love the area, and love the house for its location, with its peacefulness and privacy. However, we still wanted to be near town, so this was the ideal location, being only a seven minute drive from Schroon Lake. We love to run into town for a swim in the summer months. It's great to walk up to Horseshoe Pond in the late afternoons and on occasions we have brought our kayaks up to the lake and paddled around in the solitude.

Why South Schroon:
We had this property for many years before deciding to build our home there. We would visit the Adirondacks every summer to camp in Paradox Lake or Long Lake, or stay in local motels if the weather didn't cooperate, so we decided that since we loved the area so much, why not build our own place! And were we glad we did! The tranquility we feel when we arrive is terrific, and it doesn't take long to fall into that relaxed mode once we put the key in the door!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
If you are someone looking for a peaceful retreat, maybe to write, or to play an instrument, and want to be away from the hustle and bustle of larger resort locations, but like to be near local amenities, then this is the place for you. The house is extremely comfortable, and there is lots of outdoor space to play games, relax in an adirondack chair with the paper, and light the campfire at night.
