From our family to yours…Happy Easter!
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!

Opening day is right around the corner, so we put together a quick video that really highlights the atmosphere here at Baker Street House…enjoy!
We’re pleased to announce that we’re now accepting reservations online via the very popular AirBnB website/app!
It’s fast and convenient — if you’re ID registered with AirBnB, you are pre-approved to book reservations at Baker Street House instantaneously. The advantage to that is you can be 100% certain of getting exactly what you want, and payments go through their secure site.
To find Baker Street House, just do an AirBnB search on Schroon Lake NY; we’ll be in the results if we have vacancy.
If you aren’t quite on board with these modern “apps,” no problem…Deb and Tony will always be happy to help you with reservations over the phone or via e-mail. The difference is that AirBnB prices have the 8% New York lodging tax built in, and they add the 3% County tax later. They also add a “service fee” which sometimes varies — and we have no control over that. The rates listed here on our website are “net” and the taxes are quoted separately.
