Skiing is great in the Eastern Adirondacks and the Schroon Lake Log Cabin is right between two of the best ski centers in the east. Gore Mountain and Whiteface Mountain. Whiteface is a bit of a drive, but Gore is nearby.

Enjoy skiing during the day and relaxing around the cozy fireplace at night. We will keep plenty of firewood on hand to keep your fire crackling.

SPRING - Love to hike? Schroon Lake offers a wonderland of hiking trails. Easy: Hike around the wooded 10 acres of the Cabin property. Moderate: Severance Mountain - 1.5 miles to a panoramic view at the top. Difficult: Pharoah Mountain - 2.5 miles to fire tower at top. More Difficult: Mount Marcy and other Adirondack High Peaks in the surrounding area.

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

The house is very clean, well maintained, has everything you need to have a comfortable stay. The owner is extremely helpful and easy to work with. My family enjoyed staying here and hopes to come back soon.

One thing to keep in mind, as the owner will explain as well, the drive to the house is difficult. When the snow and ice rain fell, we had a lot of trouble getting up the hill in our 4x4 truck. If you are renting keep that in mind (for winter season of course). Otherwise no complains, we are very happy to have visited! Thank you!

Owner's Response: Hi guys! Thanks so much for your kind review! Hearing about your enjoyment and fun times at the cabin helps us to feel that it's all worth while. Sorry about the snowstorm and hail and sleet and freezing rain on our roadway. It looks like you experienced the best that the Adirondacks has to offer! Anyway, the 4WD is the best choice in the ADK's in January. You're welcome back anytime! Tim & Rebecca

Such a great Place

  • 5 of 5

The cabin and the owners are absolutely great! We were here for Christmas for just a few days and were able to enjoy the wonderful view from the deck all day due to the very warm December weather. The indoor fireplace was spectacular and we were able to enjoy the outdoor fire pit as well. There were board games and a ping pong table which were a great plus.

The driveway is quite difficult, we had a Prius and a VW Passat which made it up the first/easier driveway but had a little struggle, definitely have some speed built up in order to get passed the first uphill climb. Not sure if these would have been able to make it up with any sort of snow, rain or ice. The seclusion made it that much better!

We ate at Sticks and Stones for our Christmas Eve dinner and then cooked our Christmas dinner at the cabin. There weren't any large serving bowls but we managed. The town of Schroon is very quaint and nice. There were a few shops open for the holiday so a quick stroll through town was perfect. We would definitely rent again. Thank you Rebecca and Tim

Wonderful Location; Lovely Home

  • 5 of 5

The Barnards Schroon Lake log cabin has everything you could possibly need. The location is perfect for day visits to Schroon Lake, as well as a leisurely ride on their pontoon boat, or possibly a ferry ride to Burlington, Vermont and, of course, Lake George just to mention a few highlights of our stay. Our favorite restaurant was Sticks & Stones - the food was excellent a the live music provided was very entertaining. The Barnards' log cabin home was very clean and well-maintained. We loved sitting outside in the evenings surrounding the fire pit while toasting marshmallows and sharing good conversation. Tim Barnard was extremely helpful in every possible way - before, during, and after departing the rental. We would definitely recommend this property to all. Helpful tip: the steep road to the cabin is a bit challenging. If you don't have a 4x4 vehicle - as we did not - be sure to give your vehicle a lot of gas and continue to do so until you get to the top of the road which leads you to the log cabin. ENJOY!

Perfect Getaway Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Owners were easy to work with. Cabin was large, very clean, new had all you could want. Weather was perfect - boat was a highlight. And, the very best part - having our dogs with us to enjoy the woods and water. We will definitely come back!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful summer week at the Schroon Lake Cabin. The home is beautiful, very clean, well appointed,private and quiet. We found the kitchen well appointed although a few more bowls would have been helpful.. We spent many mornings and nights enjoying the deck and the view. The town is quaint and the locals are very friendly. We trailed a boat and had no issue at all docking in and out at the town dock which is free and had ample parking and they also allow you to park for 4 hours free of charge, this we took advantage of and then were able to head back down for an evening boat ride if we chose. The lake is uncrowded and absolutely beautiful. We found that the loft isn't the best place for teenagers to sleep and really only accommodates 1 not two unless it is 2 small children. Overall a fantastic experience and I would not hesitate renting this property again.

Fantastic home!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, We want to say thank you.

Our stay was just amazing and we felt so

welcomed.

We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived.....we walked up on the

deck and we were just taken away by the view. The inside was immaculate and was

the perfect place for us to stay for the long weekend.

Thank you so much for opening up your cozy home to our family.

Our girls had such a great time. They

were so happy to find the coloring books, crayons, games. My 8yr old had a blast

with the air hockey table and my 3yr old had two best friends all weekend (the

black bear puppets). Not one time did we hear an "I'm bored" from them. Your

location to the shops and to the beach was perfect!!

When you said "fully stocked kitchen" you meant it!! Our friends husband is a chef and we were able to have such amazing dinners!!

You can tell your heart goes in to making your guests feel welcomed. Thanks again for everything!!!
