“Reconnect with nature!”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Rocky Acres Inn B&B was just what we needed to reconnect with nature and relax! My boyfriend and I stayed in the screen house by the brook and we loved it! Other guests made a fire in the backyard fire pit so we joined in to tell stories and gaze at the night sky. We couldn't believe how many stars we could see up there. And what luck, there was a meteor shower going on so we had a special treat. After teeth brushing and goodnights we headed back to our room. The brook is very close to the screen house so we could hear it babbling all night and it was so soothing. It made me think how lucky we were to be here for a couple of nights.

Our host made us a great filling breakfast, and used blueberries from her property too. We enjoyed walking through and around the property up into the woods, picking berries, and taking in the fresh air.

It is so secluded and peaceful at Rocky Acres Inn B&B that we vowed to come back soon. We wonder what the other seasons might be like here. But if summer was this great, I imagine fall and spring would be beautiful, and winter activities would be endless.

Will definitely be back here and would recommend Rocky Acres Inn B&B to anyone looking to get some fresh air and reconnect with nature, and enjoy people in a more simple old fashioned way (I write this back at home as two others in my household have their heads in electronic devices). You will not want to waste time with gadgets and cell phones here. You will learn to appreciate all the more important things in life :)

Room Tip: We stayed in the screen house by the brook in August. The temperature was absolutely perfect. It got...

Green Features: The host composts and recycles, which we thought was very nice. The well water there is delicious! And she uses some foods she grows right there on the property.

Rocky Acres B&B was a "Lucky Find" for us. We vacationed in July of 2013 and went with no definitive location except wanting to be in The Lake George area. We found Rocky Acres B&B in the local Vacation Guide and called for availability.

The location in Schroon Lake was pristine! Laura Donaldson, our Inn Keeper as well as the Owner was Amazing! She made us feel like we were at home! We laid on her parlor floor watching TV, helped ourselves to snacks or whatever, sat outside in the enclosed screen houses and even fished on her property!!

She, by far... Is one of the Sweetest women we've ever met!!

We will go there Again & Again & Again!!

Rocky Acres Inn is located a short distance from downtown Schroon but it's a world away. There
are no traffic backups, no dodging pedestrians, just a quiet country location where you can power down and really relax. Rocky Acres is clean, cute, and comfortable.
Owner Laura is very flexible and accommodating.
Breakfasts were delicious and a great variety was available.
We arrived during the warmest days of the summer yet we remained comfortable with the a/c system at the inn. ,

Room Tip: We preferred the room with private bath, however all rooms and baths were clean and neat.

Green Features: We were pleased to hear that Laura faithfully practices recycling.

Laura is a wonderful host and Rocky Acres is a homey comfortable Inn. She was nice enough to tailor a pair of pants for me while I was there and did an amazing job. The breakfasts were wonderful and the rooms comfortable and inviting. The grounds are lovely and I would recommend staying here to anyone!

Is it a B & B? Is it an Inn? Is it Screen House by the creek? Is it a top-notch seamstress? Is it a pet-friendly place? Is the food good? The answer is yes to all of the above! I needed a place to stay while poking around waiting for my new Hornbeck canoe to be ready, and found Laura and the Rocky Acres Inn B & B. Laura is charming, and her welcome to me and my dog, Loki, was genuine. Stayed in the quaint and cozy screen house listening to the nearby babble of the brook...we both slept like dogs! Looking forward to a return trip.

Room Tip: Bring your sense of adventure and appetite, and have fun. Unplug and unwind...it's the 'Dak...

My husband and I were looking for a weekend retreat and the Rocky Acres Inn was perfect! We were basically snowed in one day, but still had a great time as there was so much to do (tons of movies, Wii, board games, etc). Laura was so helpful and accommodating. She cooked us 3 great breakfasts (and one nice dinner!), connected us with a local guy for a snowshoe trek, and even let us check out a couple hours late on our last day. Highly recommended.
