Drake’s For Sale: Restaurant and Motel


Drake’s, one of Schroon’s most well known landmark restaurants and motels is up for grabs. Brooke Van Riper-Clark has the exclusive listing on this once historic establishment, situated on 2.62 acres directly on Route 9.

From Brooke:  “This restaurant and motel can easily be brought back to its glory! Wonderful business opportunity. Fourteen-unit motel with owners quarters, office and full laundry, restaurant and pool. Directly on the snowmobile trail, minutes from the marina, town beach and all amenities. Close to I-87 to accommodate travelers. Close to high peaks, other attractions, Vermont and Canada. Make this a destination for travelers! Includes Buildings and Land, inventory negotiable”.


The motel is less than a mile from downtown, 4.6 miles from Oscar Seagle Memorial Theater and within 16 miles of Natural Stone Bridge and Caves and Elk Lake.

The property is listed at $295,000. The full tax assessment is $384,000.

This could be a perfect fit for the right buyer. A cosmetic overhaul of the nautical themed main dining area – which hasn’t been changed since the 1970s – could transform the space dramatically.  In years gone by, the restaurant was considered the gold standard for food and service in this neck of the woods.

The restaurant enjoyed a very successful run during the 2014 and 2015 summer season, under the command of Chef Lorenzo Cecunjanin and his wife Jasmina, who leased it from the owners. With Chef Lorenzo at the helm  -- who had decades of Italian cooking under his belt, with a passion for seafood – the restaurant received rave reviews. The last couple of years have been bumpy.

Own One of The Great Camps of the Adirondacks!

A standout even among the region’s Great Camps, the secluded Camp Uncas was built in 1895 by Brooklynite William West Durant, who is credited with perfecting the iconic Adirondack Great Camp style. The compound’s biggest claim to fame, however, is that it once belonged to financier J.P. Morgan, who purchased the 1,500 acre property from Durant in 1897; for the fifty years that followed, it served as a vacation home for Morgan and his family. Though the property has traded hands several times since, the appeal of its iconic architecture remains as compelling as its history. Designated as a national landmark by the U.S. Department of the Interior in 2010, this historically significant piece of the Adirondacks is for sale for $2.7 million, reduced from its original 2015 ask of $3.25M.

Although there is plenty to do on the property, there is also an abundance of hiking trails surrounding the home, and a sandy beach just a few minutes away. You can also go fishing for trout and northern pike in the 60-acre Mohegan Lake which wraps three sides of the land. The lake is also perfect for swimming, canoeing, kayaking, rowing or windsurfing. And as a bonus, the buyer of the Camp Uncas will also get an Emerson Adirondack guide boat original to the compound, two modern canoes and a rowboat.
