We recently stayed at the Adirondack Motel and can attest to the friendly personal service there. Susan and Fred were charming and gracious hosts.

There is so much to do and see here. So many hikes, so many lakes, so much ground to cover and for a small town there are pleanty of great places to eat and shop. Allthough, for breakfast I'd have to say make a trip to Lake Placid and eat at the Downtown Diner!

Saranac Lake offers outstanding backcountry adventures, but for those who want someone to show them the ropes first, you can also have a “Learn To” vacation. If you have always wanted to paddle, ski, bike, hike, fish, camp, snowshoe or explore, this is the place for you! NYS Certified Guides will give you just the right combination of instruction and freedom to suit your particular ability and objective. It is not just for extremists!

St. Regis Canoe Outfitters, on Dorsey St. in Saranac Lake and on Floodwood Road on the edge of the St. Regis Canoe Area is a great source of info on the only Canoe Area wilderness in the Adirondack Park.

Little Italy is quite a good Italian Restaurant/Pizza shop right in the center of town, and No. One Chinese does decent Chinese takeout.

Finally, there's lots of great canoeing especially north and west of the village-- Osgood River, St. Regis River, the St. Regis Lakes... on and on.
