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

Why Frank chose Skylark Beach

Beach rights. Filtered lake view. 1 min by car to our beach, 4 minutes to the classic American town known as Schroon Lake, N.Y. For guests who prefer to not vacation in a tourist trap. Lake George, Lake Placid, Gore Mountain skiing, and the high peaks are easily accessible from our Base Camp in Schroon Lake. Our guests come from California, the Mid-West, and up and down the East Coast. Some have been vacationing in the Adirondack's for years, others have never been here and just wanted to try a new place. Check out our Reviews and see what our guests have to say about Together at Schroon Lake. Then contact us so we can answer your questions and give you and your group some more details about our home and our location. Please keep in mind that pets are not permitted.

What makes this house unique

Together at Schroon Lake is a 3800 sq ft home with modern amenities, all new appliances, and hotel quality bed linens. Guests bring their own towels. A great place to spend time and relax with family and friends.

Drive just one minute to our beautiful association beach on Schroon Lake, in the beautiful Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York. Or four minutes by car, to the quaint yet vibrant hamlet of Schroon Lake.

Our home has 10 beds, 6 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths including two full en-suite bathrooms on the first floor. We've recently added a new gas fireplace in the Great room for you to enjoy for those chilly fall mornings or when returning from a full day of skiing, hiking, shopping, or ice fishing.

The best Schroon Lake vacation home. Ever!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our 2 children, in addition to my brother in law and his family, chose to stay in Together at Schroon Lake over the 4th of July holiday. What a fabulous treat! Frank and his wife are lovely people. I have rented vacation properties all over the world from VRBO, and I have to say that Frank is one of the most attentive owners I have ever had the pleasure of working with. The home is clearly his pride and joy, and we appreciated the opportunity to 'borrow' it for great family time.

Some highlights:

-The game room is well stocked with games. So much to pick a game and go for it!

-The kitchen has high-end, new appliances. Wonderful to have a working and clean fridge and freezer with ample room.

-The kitchen has plenty of storage for your non perishable items. Hooray for cabinet space!!

-The beds are all new, clean, and firm. No dust, saggy mattresses, or old linens. It was great to wake up refreshed every day.

-Wi-Fi! Works throughout the house. very exciting. most rentals in this area do not have this feature.

-The tunnel to the beach: so fun!! what an interesting history this house has.

-Decor in general: beautiful landscaping, a cute bicycle out front, and fun firepit.

Thank you Frank for such memories! We look forward to returning next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you Karin for such a wonderful and detailed review. You're right, she really is our pride and joy. When we purchased her in 2015, she had already fallen into disrepair. Our mission was to save her, and then make her better. My wife and I worked countless hours restoring the beauty and luster that it seemed had long since disappeared. We continue to make improvements and add features as we are able. It is thanks to great guests like you and your family that we are able to maintain and improve our home, one of the oldest homes in Schroon. We look forward to your return next year. All the best, Frank and Ronnie

Incredible Schroon Lake vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My family met at Together at Schroon Lake for a family reunion/wedding in October, and we all loved it! We all wished we could have stayed longer! The house is in a perfect location, it's beautiful, comfortable, clean, spacious, and exactly as advertised. Frank and his wife were wonderful, welcoming hosts, easy to contact with any questions before and during our stay. We definitely recommend and we hope to return!

Perfect Family Vacation Home - SIX STARS!!!

  • 5 of 5

Having been on a number of family vacations and vacations with friends, we have experience with all types of vacation homes. I am not sure either of us ever has seen such a well-stocked, well-set up, spacious, well-taken-care-of place to spend a family vacation. The multiple master suites on the first floor allowed us both to stay comfortably, while our five children split up among the four upstairs bedrooms. The house has so many wonderful features, it was difficult to take advantage of them all in only a week.

We enjoyed the screened in porch, the wrap-around deck and the quiet sitting room. The family room had a great seating setup for us to watch movies with the kids and the game table was a nice addition we took advantage of on multiple nights. The six-burner grill is another treat you do not find at many vacation rentals. And all of the appliances were in great working order (the coffee maker having a pot setting and single k-cup setting also was great). We made s'mores with the outdoor fire pit and enjoyed the spacious yard.

It is wonderful not to have to pack linens, paper goods (they even provide dixie cups for the bathrooms!) or extra place settings as all were plentiful. The beds and furniture were comfortable and obviously well maintained.

It also was really nice to have the close-by walkway under the highway to access the beach. The review does not allow enough characters to say everything we loved about this place.

And on top of that, the owners are extremely responsive and easy to deal with. We cannot imagine anything we would change about the home and would look forward to returning in the future. Thank you, Frank, for an ideal and relaxing vacation!

Owner's Response: Thank you Victoria for your Six Star review. We are so glad you and your family enjoyed staying at our home, and took advantage of all that it has to offer. It's great to hear that you also made use of the tunnel. When I tell our guests that our home was originally a part of the Schroon Lake Camp for Boys in the early 1900's, and that the tunnel was built under the road just for the campers back then, they really get a kick out of checking it out and using it as an alternative to driving to the beach. Thank you for choosing to stay at Together at Schroon Lake for your Summer vacation. We appreciate that you left house house in such great shape and took such great care of it. We look forward to having you and your family back. Frank and Ronnie

Beautiful House!

  • 5 of 5

The house was gorgeous and well equipped. Modern appliances but an old fashioned look. It had so many bedrooms we had rooms to spare, and the location right on route 9 was very convenient. We loved the private beach as well.

What a great place! Everything you need for a family vacation in Schroon Lake.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your home with us. It was perfect for our vacation. The home is spacious, comfortable and very well kept. Kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need. Large table inside and one on the porch were ideal for family dinners.

Frank is a great host and was always available if we had questions. Thanks again for allowing our family to be together at your home.

Outlet shopping at Lake George is just 35 min south, as well.
