Women are strong and powerful, right? That's why I was not surprised to find the large number of women owned lodging properties in the Adirondack Hub. These quaint Adirondack cottages and B&Bs will have you feeling at home in no time. You will have no trouble finding a place to rest your head as a basecamp to all of your adventures in the Adirondack Hub.
Loon Cabins: Linda Osterman
Loon Cabins is a small owner-operated seasonal rental in the Adirondack village of Schroon Lake, NY. "I have three vintage cabins within walking distance of the lake and town" Osterman said. "My husband and I purchased the property in 2008 to use for our family, but as he passed away in 2018, I am now operating a cabin rental business. It is a great base camp for hiking in the High Peaks, lake activities, and the beauty of a small town. It has a friendly personal touch as I clean and manage all aspects of the business. It is truly a labor of love. The cabins were built in 1945 and have been operated since that time as part of Rawlins Cabins and Cottages."
Chamlar Lakefront Resort & Cottages: Beth Champeau
"The property is co-owned and operated by myself, Beth Champeau, and my three daughters: Tabitha, Brielle and Valerie," owner Beth Chamepeau said.
"Chamlar Lakefront Resort & Cottages in Schroon Lake has been in the Champeau family since 1967, and consists of five charming lakefront housekeeping cottages only two blocks from the center of town. When my daughters and I took over the business in October 2010, we decided to specialize in multi-generational vacations for grandparents, their children and grandchildren looking to share an old-fashioned, lakefront vacation together, as well as larger groups looking to vacation all on the same property. We have been very successful in our business, and 'our families' come back year-after-year to enjoy their 'together' time at the lake.
Chamlar Lakefront Resort & Cottages is unique in that it allows several generations of families or larger groups of friends to vacation and make memories together in a beautiful Adirondack lakefront setting. Our amenities include five lakefront housekeeping cottages with full kitchens and screened dining porches with fantastic lake and mountain views, 250 feet of private sandy beach with swimming, boating and bonfire areas, beautiful gardens throughout the property, and the convenience of being only two short blocks to the town's Main Street and just a few miles from the Northway.
Rocky Acres B&B: Laura Donaldson
"I have worked at the chamber, catered, and after my husband passed, I used my love of people, food, and large home to become a B&B to supplement my sewing business," owner Laura Donaldson said.
"My B&B is unique because I cater to individual needs. Want to get up early, sleep late, and eat healthy and light? I will accommodate. It’s very quiet here with no background noise from no I-87 or Route 9. Guests can feed the birds outside of bedroom windows for up close enjoyment."
SunderLand Cottages: Susan and Toni Sunderland
"We inherited our business from our parents, who bought it in 1950," said owners Susan and Toni Sunderland. "We came to Paradox as children and became deeply attached to our beautiful cove and all of the surrounding area.
We rent five separate lakeside cottages, perfect for families or friends who want to vacation together. We are family owned (by women!) and have operated continuously since 1950. An owner is on-site to answer questions and ensure the comfort of guests. We are in a quiet cove; we enhance the peace, safety, and environmental health by not allowing motor boats. Some of our guests have been returning for over 30 years, and three generations!"
Betty's Funny Farm B&B: Betty Lemay
Betty’s Funny Farm is located on the 14th Rd in Minerva. After the closing of her gift store in Olmstedville, Betty Lemay decided that she would miss seeing the folks she met over the years. She fixed the upstairs of her house to accommodate a party of up to five people. Then she added a small shop in the barn with homemade gifts, jams, and jellies. People know her from her critters that greet them (especially Dominic the donkey) when they drive in with his loud brey.
No matter where your next adventures in the Adirondack Hub may lead, your comforting and cozy lodging awaits!
