About Frank

We've been vacationing in Schroon Lake for over 30 years. After the passing of our family patriarch, the family home on the east side of Schroon Lake was sold.

A few years passed and we missed visiting the Adirondacks, so our search for the perfect family vacation home began.

Our quest for the right house seemed endless, but we finally found the vacation home of our dreams. The house was built in 1830 and is one of the oldest houses in Schroon Lake. Many rumors surround our house, mainly told to us by local residents. We and the Historical Society are researching those rumors, one of which is that the house was part of the Underground Railroad. The Society has been in contact with an expert researcher and we have offered full access to the house in order to give him the opportunity to determine its place in History. We're anxious find learn the results of his research. A well known fact is that Together at Schroon Lake was an original part of the Schroon Lake Camp ( for Boys), which was founded by Rabbi Issac Moses in 1906. Our house is one of only a handful of homes that has access to a "Secret" tunnel, which crosses below Route 9 and gives access to our association beach. We love sharing the history of the home when our guests arrive. If you reserve our home, we will give you a tour and tell some of the stories related to the house .

Frank purchased this house in 2015

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Together at Schroon Lake was even better than promised. The house was beautiful and very comfortable. There was plenty of room for our family of my husband and I and our four grown children and their families. The house sits on a lovely piece of property in a beautiful area. Frank was a pleasure to deal with. We hope to stay again!

Charming house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for my uncle's memorial service and needed accommodations for the extended family. We rented the farmhouse along with the lodge next door and literally could not have asked for a better arrangement. The farmhouse was great for us with countless bedrooms and beds, and a wonderful large farmhouse kitchen table. Frank was a wonderful host who made himself accessible for any of the questions we had. Thankfully he warned us of the BYOT (bring your own towels) situation way ahead of time!

Location of the house was great for us, close to 87, the town of Schroon Lake, the Mt. Severance trail head, grocery store, Dollar General, the actual lake and some pubs!

I think the first night most of us arrived summed it up for me when I walked into the kitchen with a table full of cousins I hadn't seen in years - finally Together again. Thank you, Frank, for giving us these memories.

A wonderful Adirondack Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a weekend ski trip with friends. The house is absolutely stunning and not too far from Gore Mountain. The homeowner provided information on different activities that the little town has to offer if your not a skier or snowboarder. We had an amazing time and will be back.

We try to give our guests as much information about our beautiful little town so they can make the best use of their time here. There is just so much to do and so little time. We're glad you consider our house stunning. We think it's beautiful also, and a very special place. We look forward to seeing you this Summer.

Women together for 1/2 marathon

  • 5 of 5

Rented the house for 1/2 marathon. There were 9 women, and we had a fabulous time. The beds and bathrooms were top notch. Everything about the house was top notch. Had one question about tv and Frank was available immediately for help. There were only pleasant surprises.

Beautiful, charming, spacious & well-appointed home, close to so much

  • 5 of 5

This house was clean, beautiful and full of personality. It was well laid out, and spacious, with many nooks to accommodate all the activities of our multi-generational family vacation-- comfortable dinner around a big table inside or on closed-in porch, quiet reading, jigsaw puzzles, The Office binging, raucous board games. The kitchen and outdoor grill had all the equipment we needed for substantial cooking. Frank was a great, attentive & responsive host. The shared lakefront beach was great. Nearby, the public/town beach was nice, the center of town was charming (e.g., Pitkins restaurant was a delicious surprise), and the marina had pontoon boat rentals in great condition. There were plenty of hikes and sites to visit within 1-2 hours drive, but we only managed to fit in one in Ausable Chasm. Our entire family--from youngest to oldest-- really enjoyed our first visit to Schroon Lake.

Owner's Response: Thank you Ann for your wonderful review. It was a pleasure meeting you and your family. We're glad you enjoyed all that Schroon Lake has to offer. Our goal when we designed Together at Schroon Lake was was to transform a house which built in 1830, into a comfortable family retreat with character and charm from bygone days. Based on your review it sounds like we hit the mark. We look forward to your next trip to Schroon Lake. Good luck and good health to all of you. Frank and Ronnie
