This house was impeccable! Large bedrooms, living room, game room, bathrooms for each bedroom. Plenty of room to enjoy yourself! The bedrooms are so large and very quiet. You can't hear anyone else moving around the house. The gameroom was so entertaining. The little reading book was very cute. The prelit tree which spans 3 floors was so pretty. The stone fireplace was gorgeous. Outside deck allowed us to enjoy the gorgeous view of Schroon Lake. The enclosed porch allowed us to enjoy dinner outside. Kitchen was stocked with every imaginable item. We then enjoyed smores by the fire at night. Thanks so much for such a beautiful weekend getaway. We will be back again!

Magnificent, iconic view of Schroon Lake

  • 5 of 5

This is the most beautiful home I have ever stayed in. At first I was disappointed that the home was not lake front but had access to a decent size private beach shared by many others in the development. Since I was there in September, my dog and I were the only ones using the beach. There is a separate area for dogs to swim in away from the people. My dog loved jumping off the boat docks which were unused by boat owners in Sept. I was by myself so a kayak would have easier for me to handle rather than the owner's large canoe. The home was very private although in summer it might be less so. I loved having breakfast on the deck with the unbelievable views of the lake. Having wine on the deck later in the day was even better. When it rains, there is a lovely screened porch to sit in and listen to the rain. There is a grocery store within walking distance where I would pick up the N.Y. Times every morning. Restaurants are nearby. Jogging in the area was fun with the hills being quite challenging. My dog and I went on hikes. The walk from the beach to the home was uphill and might be difficult for some although you could drive and park near the beach.

A large family with a dog would appreciate this home even more than I did with its super fun game room, multiple bedrooms and large kitchen.

I longingly keep thinking about my stay here. I hope to return.
