About the property

Private, serene, one bedroom boathouse getaway on Beautiful Schroon Lake. Just renovated-includes full kitchen, bath, living area, large windows, fireplace with gas insert, nicely furnished, wireless access, satellite TV, DVD, etc. The mountains and lake views from the boathouse property are fabulous. The owner of the property has the right of way to use this area to get into the lake etc.. This is one of the nicest properties on the lake. Just 45 minutes from Saratoga, 45 minutes to Lake Placid, 20 minutes to Gore Mt. Whether you want to sit back and relax, or get into the Adirondack outdoors, this is the place to be! Weekly, monthly or seasonal rental available.

I prefer weekly rentals during the summer , but I will book 2-3 nights ,if my calendar doesn't fill up the week

Best setting on Schroon Lake!: When you look out from the living area of this bome,you are in awe your surroundings.

Mary Ann, the host, went above and beyond

  • 5 of 5

Mary Ann was a perfect host. We brought our 20ft sailboat and Mary Ann jumped in the water in her jeans to help secure it to the mooring. We felt at home and the accommodations were a perfect size for two. The kitchen was well-stocked and there were lots of nice-sized towels. The boathouse was very clean. The view was beautiful. Mary Ann was very flexible and made us feel welcomed the whole time.

Definitely charming

  • 2 of 5

The space was clean but had a lingering odor of mildew. The WiFi connection that is stated in description is a lie, you have to stand in front of the owners home to get access, it is not within the boathouse which was extremely frustrating. The bed is a full size and was so uncomfortable I don't think I slept the entire time. We left two days early because of that. The view was lovely and it definitely is quiet. The owner is lovely and gracious. If you're looking for an off the grid kind of experience this is perfect.

Owner's Response: I was sorry to hear that my renters had problems with the Boathouse rental. There is internet access but you have to make sure that you position yourself in a specific location within the boathouse. I have had no complaints with previous renters regarding internet service and I wasn't aware of the problem. Their is a "queen size" bed (not a full size )in the Boathouse and I have never had complaints regarding it being uncomfortable. They were a very nice couple and I was sorry that everything wasn't to their liking. I was unaware that they had left early because I was out of town .

Very pleased!

  • 5 of 5

Clean space with wonderful view of lake. Mary Ann was very kind and attentive. We really enjoyed the place and area. Had great meal out one night. Only gap - which from some perspectives might be positive - is that there was not any access to internet unless close to main house. Otherwise, very pleased. We would definitely return.

Owner's Response: I was not aware that there was no internet access. If I had known, I would have told them how to connect to it. I wish I had been told about it. I have had 4 renters earlier and they had a good connection. Mary Ann

Immaculate Interior

  • 4 of 5

Mary ann the owner is a sweetheart of a person. She recommended a great restaurant right down the road., which was a BYOB. The interior of the boat house was Immaculate, which was my main concern, Very comfortable & cozy, what an awesome view right on the Lake. I used her kayak & paddles & life vest. She lent me butter that i ended up not using. The only reason i didnt give it 5 stars was the outdoor furniture on the deck was really tired. i sat in the chair & it broke. There are built in seats in the deck so it didnt bother me. Great Place & Great Owner!

Perfect and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Second stay at this delightful location. Peaceful surroundings - Beautiful lake view. Deck for morning coffee by the lake.

Crystal clear water. Boathouse is charming and Mary Ann is most helpful. We forgot salad dressing and she brought us hers.

Made a friend for life and hopefully, a summer vacation for years to come.

Thanks !
