Luxury Log Cabin at Schroon Lake w/ Pontoon Boat

Bedrooms 3
Space 1,362 sq. ft.
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

3 bedrooms and loft, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 8 plus

This luxurious, year round log cabin has it all!! The Cabin is nestled on a hillside with panoramic views overlooking crystal clear, nine mile long Schroon Lake.

PLEASE NOTE: During the summer season, we rent the Cabin with a Pontoon Boat for an additional cost of $875 plus tax. Guests can rent the Cabin any other time of the year without the boat.

You can take the pontoon boat and your whole group on an adventure of fun and discovery. Docked at your private boat slip, you can cruise to the Town docks for shopping, dinner, or swimming. Enjoy fishing or swimming from the boat. Anchor in a secluded area and take a dip or best of all, just drift along and enjoy.

After your busy day, come home to the privacy of your own authentic Adirondack log cabin. Relax on the spacious deck overlooking six miles of the lake, or sit and enjoy a cozy evening campfire. Inside kick back and get comfortable in this beautiful genuine log cabin. Enjoy the majestic natural stone fireplace indoors, or have a family campfire at the outdoor fire ring. Get cozy with a movie in the loft or a game of ping pong, air hockey, or darts in the basement. Relax and Enjoy!!

FALL - Enjoy the amazing, vibrant fall foliage while relaxing on the Cabin deck, hiking on the many local trails, or cruising along in the pontoon boat (boat available through Columbus Day weekend).

WINTER - Ski at nearby Gore or famous Whiteface Mountain near Lake Placid. A beginner? Try FREE skiing with rope tow at the local Schroon Lake Golf Course.

Not a skier? The Cabin is equipped with 4 sets of snowshoes and a family size toboggan. Enjoy snowshoeing, cross country skiing, or snowmobiling from the Cabin. Toboggan at the Golf Course, or skate in town at the FREE rink. Ice fishing equipment is available upon request.

Skiing is great in the Eastern Adirondacks and the Schroon Lake Log Cabin is right between two of the best ski centers in the east. Gore Mountain and Whiteface Mountain. Whiteface is a bit of a drive, but Gore is nearby.

Enjoy skiing during the day and relaxing around the cozy fireplace at night. We will keep plenty of firewood on hand to keep your fire crackling.

SPRING - Love to hike? Schroon Lake offers a wonderland of hiking trails. Easy: Hike around the wooded 10 acres of the Cabin property. Moderate: Severance Mountain - 1.5 miles to a panoramic view at the top. Difficult: Pharoah Mountain - 2.5 miles to fire tower at top. More Difficult: Mount Marcy and other Adirondack High Peaks in the surrounding area.

Perfect Spot for Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

The property was above our expectations. Everything was well kept and the layout was perfect for a family. The children were elated to find the air hockey and ping pong table in the basement. The cabin was even stocked with the small items that you always forget such as paper towels and salt and pepper.

The cabin feels remote but is close to the lake and other area attractions. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing weekend or week.

It is a pleasure to say how wonderful our stay in the Schroon Cabin was. It turned out to be exactly as depicted on the website, with wonderful views over the Schroon Lake (an enjoyable part of our stay was exploring the Gore Mountain). The living room and dining room were large and comfortable, the kitchen well-equipped. The cabin could not be better located.

Thank you.

My only regret is that our stay was far too short!

Beautiful & super-clean cabin

We adored the stay in this cabin! When we arrived it was perfect--so clean & mountain festive. I sent many emails with questions and they were all answered promptly and patiently. I highly recommend this cabin!

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

A lovely log cabin with all the amenities. Beautifully maintained and decorated. Just finished a weeks vacation with 4 adults and 2 children.The pontoon boat was great. Spent most of our time cruising the lake, fishing in Paradox Wilderness and swimming at the town docks. Tim and Rebecca are very helpful and prompt about anything you need to know about the area or the house. Enjoyed sitting outside at night with a conservative fire in the stone pit. The basement with air hockey, ping pong, and darts provided a change in activities from the outside. The red barn driveway could be problematic for 2 wheel drive cars even with traction control. Need enough momentum to take you past the first gradient. The propane tank driveway is strictly 4wd only. This was a great family vacation.

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

The house is very clean, well maintained, has everything you need to have a comfortable stay. The owner is extremely helpful and easy to work with. My family enjoyed staying here and hopes to come back soon.

One thing to keep in mind, as the owner will explain as well, the drive to the house is difficult. When the snow and ice rain fell, we had a lot of trouble getting up the hill in our 4x4 truck. If you are renting keep that in mind (for winter season of course). Otherwise no complains, we are very happy to have visited! Thank you!

Owner's Response: Hi guys! Thanks so much for your kind review! Hearing about your enjoyment and fun times at the cabin helps us to feel that it's all worth while. Sorry about the snowstorm and hail and sleet and freezing rain on our roadway. It looks like you experienced the best that the Adirondacks has to offer! Anyway, the 4WD is the best choice in the ADK's in January. You're welcome back anytime! Tim & Rebecca

Such a great Place

  • 5 of 5

The cabin and the owners are absolutely great! We were here for Christmas for just a few days and were able to enjoy the wonderful view from the deck all day due to the very warm December weather. The indoor fireplace was spectacular and we were able to enjoy the outdoor fire pit as well. There were board games and a ping pong table which were a great plus.

The driveway is quite difficult, we had a Prius and a VW Passat which made it up the first/easier driveway but had a little struggle, definitely have some speed built up in order to get passed the first uphill climb. Not sure if these would have been able to make it up with any sort of snow, rain or ice. The seclusion made it that much better!

We ate at Sticks and Stones for our Christmas Eve dinner and then cooked our Christmas dinner at the cabin. There weren't any large serving bowls but we managed. The town of Schroon is very quaint and nice. There were a few shops open for the holiday so a quick stroll through town was perfect. We would definitely rent again. Thank you Rebecca and Tim
