This comfortable Saranac Lake hotel ensures that guests are only a few steps or a short drive away from dozens of must-see sites as well as outdoor recreational action.

Show More / Less

Saranac Lake hotels boast one of the best locations in New York. The views of the Adirondack Mountains are unbeatable and geo-caching is a serious sport here. Why not take advantage of a comfortable Saranac Lake hotel that combines luxurious amenities with a very affordable price?

Unfortunately, not all Saranac Lake hotels are created equal. We boast the only indoor pool in Saranac Lake, so no matter what time of year it is, you can get in a quick dip. Close proximity to Lake Placid and Olympic venues are just part of the appeal. We're also within walking distance of restaurants, boat rentals and guide services.

Most guests flock to our Saranac Lake hotel to get up close and personal with Mother Nature. The unbelievable fall foliage, hiking, golf and snowmobiling opportunities are unlike anything you've experienced before. Spend the day practicing your photography skills. Take a hike and breathe in that mountain air. Discover the adrenaline-packed adventure of snowmobiling with Jack Frost.

Since we're eight miles from downtown Lake Placid, our Saranac Lake hotel can offer lower rates than competitors. Plenty of business travelers call our rooms their second home. Employees from Adirondack Medical Center, Paul Smith's College, Adirondack Regional Airport, and NYS State Offices like the State Police, DEC and APA are just a few of our frequent guests.

The perks here are limitless. Free Wi-Fi is standard. We have complimentary newspapers on the desk each morning.
