The guest rooms and much of the house have recently been tastefully renovated. Tons of off street parking with the capability to handle trailers, boats and RVs.

Sara-Placid Inn and Suites, Saranac Lake, NY

Hotel Saranac, Saranac Lake, NY

A completely refreshed, historic city hotel surrounded by the wilds of the Adirondacks is what you’ll find at Hotel Saranac. Our amenities start with all the essential services you’d expect of a high-end modern hotel – and end with some little surprises that make your stay memorable.

The Lower Saranac Lake Islands Campground is a boat access only campground that provides miles and miles of boater recreation and direct access to four other lakes through a set of locks which allow your vessel to be raised or lowered to the right water level. The SAIL Adirondacks family grew up on this lake, using this campground. We simply can not recommend spending time here highly enough. Coupled with the ability to camp on selected island sites, being able to fish for your dinner after hours of sailing might make you want to stay here forever. The public access is just 7 miles from our Upper Saranac Lake Base at the Old Dock Road.

Saranac Waterfront Lodge  offers the chance to connect with nature and find inspiration in the stunning beauty surrounding it. Saranac Waterfront Lodge, with its

location on the Lake Flower's Pontiac Bay in Saranac Lake, nature-connected design, and high-level guest service focused on supporting a thoughtful stay, is the premier

destination in the Adirondack High Peaks Region. The property is a 15-minute drive to our Upper Saranac Lake base and 60-minute drive to SAILADKS Bridgeview Harbour Marina base at Port Henry, NY.
