Schroon Lake, N.Y. - The Schroon Lake Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that the Schroon Lake Bed & Breakfast has been awarded the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence. The accolade, which honors hospitality excellence, is given only to establishments that consistently achieve outstanding traveler reviews on TripAdvisor. TripAdvisor® is the world's largest travel site. The online resource offers trusted advice from real travelers and a wide variety of travel choices and planning features. To qualify for the Certificate of Excellence, businesses must maintain an overall rating of four or higher, out of a possible five, as reviewed by travelers on TripAdvisor. Additional criteria include the volume of reviews received within the last 12 months. The Schroon Lake Bed & Breakfast is owned and operated by Mark and Sharon Piper. The Adirondack Inn, built in the 1920's, sits between the Hoffman and Pharaoh Wilderness areas, making it a favorite for those who enjoy Adirondack outdoor adventures. "These days, with the prevalence of social media, it is the customer who provides the third party validation through user generated content on travel review sites like TripAdvisor," said Sharon Piper. "That's what makes this award so valuable to us - it is based on feedback from our customers."
