New Ownership & Upgrades Take This Lodging Property to the Next Level

Saratoga Springs-based Bonacio Construction bought the former Word of Life Lodge in Schroon Lake in 2022. Prior to the religious compound, the facility was an elegant Adirondack lodging property called the Brown Swan Club.

Thanks to the new owner’s vision, and a $4.1 million award from the Empire State Development North Country Region Upstate Revitalization Initiative, the beautiful property is now a lakeside paradise.

This iconic resort offers several family-friendly lodging options ranging from hotel rooms to cabins to glamping sites. Plus, they feature amenities you won’t find at other resorts, like mini golf and a private marina, more than one on-site dining option, and close-by hiking trails, activities, and attractions.
