We had no previous reservations and just by chance went to Schroon Lake and spotted vacancy sign at the Tumble Inn, Nancy and Larry are wonderful hosts! I eat gluten free (not by choice), Nancy was so accommodating it was amazing. She revised the eggs made for breakfast so I could enjoy them. She even went out of her way... More

Nancy puts on a quite a spread at breakfast. On our latest visit we started with in-season fruit topped with yogurt and granola. Next was a goat cheese quiche with asparagus and tomato. Truly elegant. Our next course was an incredible apricot french toast, served with locally cured bacon and sausage. For 'dessert" we indulged on a bacon pineapple upside... More

Thanks Steve and Dawn. Sorry I didn't get to say goodbye to you as I thought you would still be there after I got back from church. It was fun seeing you again and thank you for the nice review. We know we will see you again. More

Nancy and Larry are perfect innkeepers. They and their house are open to their guests. If you speak with them, you will be rewarded with intelligent, articulate dialogue about the region. If you wish to keep to yourself, you can enjoy solitude. The house is spotless, the breakfast is delicious and more than ample (you will skip lunch), and the... More

My husband and I booked the Tumble Inn for 3 nights over the 4th of July weekend and we couldn't have been more pleased. My husband isn't a big B & B guy, but had no complaints. We stayed in the Winter Room which was fun as it was decorated with 1980 Winter Olympic memorabilia. Since my husband was at... More

When we arrived in the late afternoon we found a note on the door. Nancy would not be back until 8:30 pm but come in and find our room in the empty house. When we tried to enter, 2 dogs were inside the door barking at us. We had skipped lunch so went out for an early dinner. Larry was... More

Today I had a hard time finding rooms in the Schroon Lake Area in the AM and decided to call this place for vacancy. Not only was the owner rude to me and planned on over charging me for the night, she argued with me about me being allowed to come stay there. I was made to feel unwanted and... More

What you failed to mention is that you called at 2:30 AM. An innkeeper at a small inn has no night desk clerk, I was sound asleep and was awoken by your call. I cannot turn my phone off at night due to a medical issue of a family member. I am usually quite pleasant, but 2:30 AM is not... More

Have stayed here a couple of times the past few years. Recently stayed the first weekend in May. It was off season for Schroon Lake, so there were a couple of spare rooms. Our hostess asked if we wanted to upgrade to a king-sized bed at no additional cost. Of course! It ended up being the room we'd stayed in... More

We just stayed for two nights at the Tumble Inn. Normally we don't stay at B and Bs but the reviews of the breakfasts definitely lured us in and we were not disappointed. Each morning Nancy went over and above our expectations. French toast stuffed with apples, quiche, little ricotta tarts, homemade applesauce-- I could go on, but leave it... More

We are not really into B and B but this was really a pleasant experience. Nancy does an excellent job of taking care of you from start to finish. It is really great in this impersonal world to stay where you really feel that a real person cares for you. The rooms are a little small but certainly adequate. The... More

Thank you for the review. Thanks for the positive feedback about our service to you and fellow marathoners. We consider our rooms adequate in size. They are not the suites of box hotels, just what we advertise as; i.e., a country farmhouse inn kept true to the character of the original 1870s home. More
