We had a great visit in Saranac Lake. The staff at Saranac Waterfront Lodge were amazing and welcoming. Enjoyed our wine by the fire with puzzles and Trivial Pursuit! Convenient location to attractions in the Adirondacks and Lake Placid. Would definitely visit again!

Perfect Waterfront Gateway
Hotel was lovely. It is well located right on the water and provides beautiful views, especially during the fall. Even if your room doesn’t have a view the main lobby is perfect for settling in by the fire and enjoy the lake view. Unfortunately the lobby bar wasn’t open, but the Boat House restaurant is right next door. I would recommend making reservations as it can get busy especially on weekends. Downtown is a close walk and Lake Placid is a short drive. Room was modern and clean. Surprised we had housekeeping both days and a very friendly maintenance worker changed our mini-fridge without us even asking as it hadn’t been working properly. Check-in was easy and our room was even ready early. Overall a great experience.
