Schroon Lake has always been a classic resort destination, with the lake full of boaters and the dance halls full of revelers. As the 20th century aged through both World Wars, its stylish hotels and famous summer camps served as the template for cultural memories.

The summer romance, Schroon Lake-style, was immortalized in the 1958 musical “Marjorie Morningstar,” some of which was filmed on location in Schroon Lake.

While the giant resort hotels that once dominated the shoreline no longer exist, the hospitality ethos is still burning brightly, especially in the charming B&Bs the area is known for. Each of them have their own personality and style.

The village of Schroon Lake has perhaps the best beach in the Adirondacks, on the shores of lovely Schroon Lake, a minute's walk from downtown. The town's busy marina handles all kinds of boating needs — get out on the lake and go water skiing, fishing, sailing, and paddling. When the temperature and snow have begin to fall town doesn't close up. There's still plenty to do in winter, from alpine and cross-country skiing to fat biking and snowmobiling, that everyone in the family will be content with the wide range of winter activities.

The art scene is another important part of the area’s heritage. Seagle Music Colony, the oldest summer vocal training program in the nation, provides wonderful musical entertainment, and visitors can see performers of all kinds at the Boathouse Theater and Schroon Lake Bandstand.

The full events calendar runs year-round, with craft fairs, a regatta, and a wonderful Harvest Celebration at Gore Mountain. Centrally located to many of the area's attractions, and with a nine-hole, par-36 public golf course built nearly a century ago, Schroon Lake is the place for a timeless era of enjoyment. In winter, the golf course transforms into a winter wonderland, complete with tubing and sledding.

In many ways Schroon Lake is just as it was when the Adirondacks were first opened for visiting, but now it also has the latest hospitality and entertainment amenities.

A relaxing paddle or boat ride awaits.

The beaches here are fun for all ages!

Seagle Music Colony puts on extraordinary music performances each summer.
