Great location only 2 miles from Northway/Rt 87. Steinmetz Lodge is a year-round Adirondack chalet located on Paradox Lake inlet. This year-round vacation home of 2300 square feet, constructed in 2004, is ideal for families with kids. The property has its own private waterfront and boat dock on the inlet, 150 yards from the lake, and access to a quiet, sandy, community beach for sunbathing/swimming. The Lodge has a fully-equipped kitchen and large family room on the main floor with a cathedral ceiling, Adirondack beams, gas stove/fireplace, and two sliding glass doors to a wraparound deck overlooking the waterfront. On the main floor there are two bedrooms and two bathrooms with showers and a third bedroom in the upstairs loft. Downstairs, there is a fourth bedroom, a large sitting room area, pool table, card/game table, a rustic Adirondack pine-top bar and refrigerator, a gas stove/fireplace, a trundle or day-bed sofa (sleeps 2 persons), and a laundry room with a washer/dryer and bathroom with shower. A sliding door opens to the ground level for easy access to the large boat dock and fire pit sitting area. Paradox Lake is ideal for boating, sailing, waterskiing, swimming, and bird watching—there’s a pair of nesting bald eagles, loons, and herons. The fishing is excellent, with bass, trout, and northern pike. You can play tennis on the public courts at the nearby Town of Schroon Lake and golf at the Schroon Lake Municipal Golf Course and Ticonderoga Country Club. Terrific hikes of all lengths from Severance Hill in Schroon Lake, 5 minutes from the Lodge, to the nearby Pharaoh Wilderness with numerous trails and remote ponds and scenic mountains. The High Peaks area is along the spectacular 50-minute drive north through Keene Valley to Lake Placid. Artsy Saranac Lake, with its excellent restaurants, is west of Placid. Hiking guides are available in the Lodge. Fall is a wonderful time to hike and enjoy the glorious color changes. In the winter, go ice fishing, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling. Downhill skiing at Gore Mtn. is a 35-minute drive and Whiteface is 45 minutes. The Lodge is close to many popular attractions, including Fort Ticonderoga, Lake Placid, Saranac Lake, Lake George, and Saratoga. In the winter, be sure to check dates for the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival. In Schroon Lake, there are several restaurants and a coffee shop, as well as many shops catering to visitors, and the Paradox Brewery, which is opening a new site just north of the Lodge on Route 9.
A Tesla 240 volt, 40 amp, charging outlet was recently installed on the exterior of the Lodge.
Boating: You can bring your own power boat; the dock can accommodate most sizes. There’s a public boat launch on the lake. A canoe, paddles, and lifejackets are provided; a pair of kayaks with paddles may be rented from the Lodge. Boat rentals are available at the Schroon Lake Marina.
