A lot of exciting things have been happening in the Adirondack Hub lately, and we’re thrilled to share them all with you. Here are some of the newest updates and improvements that have been happening to make the communities of the Adirondack Hub even better than they already are!
New owners Adam and Bridget of Minerva did a complete overhaul of the iconic Pitkin's Restaurant in Schroon Lake. The interior and exterior have been completely remodeled and refreshed. They even recently completed an outdoor dining area. Don’t worry, the food is just as incredible and they still sell those pies we all love!
9 Mile Coffee Co.
9 Mile Coffee Co. recently moved to a new location next to the Pine Cone Mercantile, but owner Andrew did a substantial remodel to convert a building from the 1860s to a modern/functional cafe, while maintaining the character and history represented in Schroon Lake. Pro tip: get your favorite cup of caffeine to go and head down to the gazebo to enjoy the view.
Blue Ridge Motel
New owner Tammy Brown has completely renovated this Schroon Lake motel into a modern lodging property, while not losing any of the Adirondack charm. There are plenty of unique pieces and touches that make this place so special. The Blue Ridge Motel will be open this summer, and we are so excited to have Tammy and the Blue Ridge Motel as a part of the Adirondack Hub.
Owner Danielle recently opened EveryBODY518 Nutrition in Schroon Lake, serving healthy and energizing smoothies and teas that are designed for takeout so you can enjoy the rest of your day adventuring in the Adirondack Hub. Pro tip: grab a drink to go and head to the beach!
Our beloved Paradox Brewery in North Hudson has opened in their new location right by the new Frontier Town Campground, and the results are impressive. On the weekends they have a food truck serving delicious food to go with their one-of-a-kind beers. They have even added an outdoor pavilion and tasting room so you can enjoy your beer while enjoying the Adirondack air and mountain views.
Newcomb Cafe & Campground
The Newcomb Cafe & Campground opened its cafe earlier in the year, but this will be the first summer their campground will be open. Their cafe serves breakfast and lunch seven days a week, their store is stocked with necessities as well as local fresh produce, they’ve added an outdoor dining area for the cafe, and the campground is open and accepting reservations that are filling up fast. They also have a gas pump making it a snowmobiling hot spot in the winter.
Lake Harris Lodge
The Lake Harris Lodge in Newcomb opened at the beginning of the year in its newly renovated building. Its rustic interior is an absolutely stunning location for lunch or dinner overlooking Lake Harris. They also serve brunch on Sundays with live music! They have an outdoor seating area that overlooks the lake and lakeside glamping tents. Right now they have one complete, but three more are planned for the future.
Other businesses are getting creative and adding new features to their already existing businesses. Sticks & Stones Bistro now has an ice cream wagon, Licks & Cones, serving your favorite frosty treats. And the Adirondack General Store made a snack window serving ice cream treats and summer bites. Summer in the Adirondack Hub keeps getting better and better!
We are thrilled to have so many new businesses opening in the Adirondack Hub and many other business owners continuing to make impressive improvements and upgrades to their businesses to keep traditions alive and visitors coming back for many years to come.
