The River Cabin is a simple but beautiful original log home that has a gorgeous view of Schroon River and Schroon Falls. It is privately located on a quiet lot but also only 200 feet off of Route 9. This cabin was built in 1977, by our family. It has access to a private swimming hole where you can kayak, swim, fish or just hang out. This cabin has a full kitchen, living room with propane fire place, 3 bedrooms and 1.5 baths. The basement has a unique game room with poker table and bar.

The space
The River Cabin was built by my grandfather and provides a "Adirondack feel" due to its authentic logs and design. You will enjoy the private location that the River Cabin offers, but also like that it is only 5 miles from the Village of Schroon Lake. Gore Mountain is only 40 minutes away and Whiteface Mountain is 50 minutes away; it's a great place to stay for ski season!! Guests can enjoy an outdoor fire pit, fire wood is provided for our guests at no extra change. The fire pit is not available during the winter months, as it is covered in snow.

Guest access
There IS wireless internet at the River Cabin, and Verizon provides great cell phone service at this location. There is no cable television. There is a television with a DVD and a VHS player available. There is a small DVD and VHS library that you may use. Guests will have access to the entire cabin and property, which includes large lawn and access to the Schroon River. Guests will have access to "the swimming hole". PLEASE NOTE: that the swimming hole is shared by my family and other nearby airbnb renters, so there may be other people at the swimming hole while you are there. There is no lifeguard at the swimming hole. Please swim at your own risk. You will need to bring your own beach chairs and fishing poles. There are five beach towels at the cabin for your convenience!

*Their are four kayaks and 6 life jackets (four adult and two child) that guests are welcome to use. We ask that you keep kayaks and life jackets on the property and return kayaks to the rack when you are finished with them. The life jackets are kept in the shed. Please do not take kayaks over the falls; I know that this is very tempting for some people. Please paddle upstream and then return downstream to the swimming hole.

Guests will have access to propane grill.

Other things to note
PLEASE NOTE: the basement bedroom is small and is not close to the master bedroom, therefore I recommend older children (ten or older) and adults stay in this room, however it is safe for any age and there is room to set up a pack and play if you wish (pack and play not provided).
PLEASE NOTE: there is an outdoor security camera on the property. The camera is aimed at the driveway and the stairs that lead up to the cabin. Please be assured that there are NO cameras inside the cabin.

PLEASE NOTE: the swimming hole is used by my family and another airbnb renter, so there is the potential for other people to be swimming there during your stay.

Location

Schroon Lake, New York, United States

The River Cabin sits on 2.3 acres and over looks Schroon River and Schroon Falls. The driveway along the river is shared by my brother, the River Cabin, and a small camp in the woods. My brother lives next door, and you will occasionally see him and his family drive by, during the summer months. The River Cabin is unique in the fact that it is extremely private, yet only minutes to I-87 and approximately 100 yards off of route 9. The property is quiet, however there is some minimal road noise. The is a great location because it is conveniently close to route 9 and I-87, but please be aware that because of this you will hear some minimal road noise when you are outside. The cabin has views of the river throughout. The River Cabin is also close to town (approximately 5 miles). Schroon Lake has a beautiful town beach, tennis courts and basketball courts as well as a golf course. There are some great restaurants in town as well. Gore Mountain Ski Area is approximately 40 minutes away and Lake Placid (Whiteface Mountain) is approximately 50 minutes away. The historical towns of Lake George (40 minutes) and Ticonderoga (20 minutes) are close and great to visit.
* Keene Valley, home of the Adirondack High Peaks, is approximately 20 minutes from the cabin. If you are a hiker, the location of the River Cabin makes access to the high peak trails very convenient.

I am a year round resident of Schroon Lake and have lived here my entire life. I have been a registered nurse for 17 years and work at the health center in town. I am a homeschool mom to three children. My husband and I love raising our children in the Adirondacks, as we enjoy snow skiing, hiking the High Peaks, water skiing, fishing, riding horses, and dirt bikes. The change of seasons is a huge reason why we love the area so much.
