On the eastern shores of Schroon Lake is the small community of Adirondack. (Yes, there is a town called ‘Adirondack’ in the Adirondacks!). Not as well-known as the hamlet of Schroon Lake on the western shore, Adirondack is a quiet oasis and a popular second-home destination known for its boating and beautiful water views.
It makes a great base from which to explore the area, by water or by land. There's a general store and deli that offers a little bit of everything, including breakfast, lunch and ice cream. While many of the homes in Adirondack are privately owned, there are some lodging options as well, including B&Bs and private rentals. The options are limited, so plan ahead if you want to stay in this idyllic Adirondack community.
