Owning and operating a 100+ year old guest house has its ups and downs. The “ups” are meeting and greeting guests, and spending time with some terrific people. The “downs” are the harsh Adirondack winters, during which this ol’ house really takes a beating!
Here’s one of those “behind-the-scenes” things that keeps us busy at Baker Street House. It may not look like much — and we don’t rent it out (LOL). But this new attic and roof are really making a difference in our day-to-day life here in Schroon Lake; our kitchen and laundry are free from leaks. And that means fresh breakfast every day, and fresh linens for every stay!
The summer season is underway here in Schroon Lake — the beach is open, flowers are blooming, boats are in the water and our hiking trails are wrapped in vivid green! Now we can’t guarantee the weather, but we can guarantee a quiet peaceful morning at Baker Street House, rain or shine. Coffee’s on, waiting just for you. Look for us on Air BnB for immediate availability.
May greetings from the ADK! Beautiful sunshine has finally — finally — replaced the snow, ice, sleet, slush and mush. Our season is just a month away, so here’s a friendly reminder to get your reservations in place if you’ve got dates penciled in. Check us out on Airb’n’b or leave a message for Deb at 973-590-4560 and she’ll call back promptly.
Schroon Lake Community Church was destroyed by fire yesterday, and we’re sorry to say that pastor Lynette Cole’s home next door was also damaged. Fortunately she was not home at the time, and nobody was hurt in the blaze.
The church has been a cornerstone of the community, and people are devastated by this. Of course the “church” is much more than a building, and we think the community will come out stronger than ever. But it will be a long road to rebuild — we’ll keep you posted on how to help. In the meantime, our prayers are for pastor Lynette and for the congregation!
On behalf of all of us at Baker Street House, we wish you a happy and healthy New Year! Deb is pleased to say that summer reservations are now open through AirBnB. Season will kick off June 24, and run through the end of August. We may also have a few spring weekends available from time to time. As always, please call or email if you have any questions or special requests. We look forward to seeing you soon!
Our first summer at Baker Street House has come and gone in a flash…and to all those who stayed with us, supported us, and helped “spread the word,” we say a very big and very sincere THANK YOU!
We’ll be running a limited, part-time schedule until next summer. Rooms may be available from time to time for a few select weekends and special occasions — check back here for updates. Otherwise our plan is to re-open next June. Please contact us if you have any questions…firstname.lastname@example.org
Hard to believe it’s nearly the end of August! Summer ends with a bang here in Schroon Lake, first up is the big flea market on Saturday. That’s held downtown in the park by the public beach, and it’s a lot of fun. Later Saturday is the street fair concert, followed by fireworks over the beach — we hope to see you there!
It’s been a month since we officially opened Baker Street House for overnight lodging, and the experience has been fantastic! We hope that our guests have enjoyed it as much as we have. Some nights are still available in August, plus a few select weekends through the Fall. Our calendar is always up to date on AirB’n’B, which is a terrific service and easy to use. We also encourage you to call or send an email if you have any questions.
For our first month, we say a sincere “thank you” to everyone who has worked so hard to make this dream a reality!
