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.
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 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!
I made a friend...the owner Mary Ann is awesome...this rental was perfect.....a great view of the lake.....kitchen was perfect and the bed was just right....the cabin was very clean....fully stocked...TV...DVD player..wifi...coffee maker...everything I needed..I was a happy camper..Mary Ann recommend local restaurants....she just made us feel like family...I would SO recommend the boat house for vacation...great location...great rental....thanks for giving me a awesome memory :)
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.
We had a wonderful 5-night stay at this property, and will definitely return.The owner took great pains to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. We were traveling by motorcycle, and Mary Ann even brought our bike covers to us one night when we returned. The house was well-stocked. We found the bed to be very comfortable, and slept well. We saw loons and duck families from the big picture window, and had a great time kayaking in the peaceful surroundings. I would highly recommend this property to anyone who loves being near the water, and who wants to be in a beautiful, relaxing setting.
My husband and I were excited to spend 5 nights at this lovely setting. The trouble began almost immediately when I had to call and email the owner over and over to try to get a response on availability for the days we wanted. I persisted because the location was ideal (close to a wedding we were attending in the area) and it looked so nice from the photos. The owner finally called me back and said the dates were free and I should send her a check for half the total rental cost. I had to insist on some sort of contract or at least an email stating the dates and terms. She was surprised that I wouldn't simply send a check for $$$! It took another couple weeks to get the "contract" (a typed paragraph that I could barely read it was scanned so small).
Several months went by.
As the date of our vacation approached, I again emailed the owner to find out the exact address and other check-in details. Again, no response. So I called and left messages. She finally called me back one evening and had no idea who I was. She said she had my name down for another set of dates. She even read me an email that she thought was from me... I had to respond simply with, "I have no idea who sent you that... that's not from me. We booked the trip months ago and have a signed agreement."
She reassured me all was well and we arrived on our pre-arranged date. The house was cozy and well appointed with one glaring exception: the bed was horrible. Old, ancient springs, sagging mattress... we were miserable and even checked out a day early because we both couldn't sleep and were tired and cranky from tossing and turning. The day before we left, I emailed the owner about this asking if she'd even consider refunding us one night's stay. No response. I called and texted. No response. After we got home, I tried again to reach her... I hoped she'd be understanding and offer some compensation. I asked her to let me know one way or another. No reply.
Note that there is not, in fact, any WIFI you can access. The password she gave us didn't work and we were so burned from trying to communicate with her about other details that we didn't bother trying further to get her to double check if the password had changed or something like that.
Also, the very first morning we awoke (true... we were half awake from the dreadful mattress anyway) to her grandchild opening the door to the cabin at 7 am. We both leaped out of bed and scrambled to pull on clothes! Very alarming and unsettling.
great time....nice camp for the price.very clean....quiet....peaceful.had fun all week,,,,and learned to kyak......harder then it looks.will rent again.........aaaaaplus.
A deposit for half of the rental price is due prior to arrival (unless agreed upon earlier). If by chance, an emergency occurs whereupon the need to leave occurs, the owner has the choice of returning the rental fee only if the opportunity is available to re-rent the cottage to another occupant or give the previous paid renter the opportunity to reschedule other dates at a future time .
