Saranac Lake

Centered in the Tri-Lakes region between Lake Placid & Tupper Lake, is a ‘decidedly different' Adirondack town. An artist's haven, seated between lakes and mountains, Saranac Lake maintains a quirky and fun vibe all its own, and at the center of it all is Saranac Waterfront Lodge.
The historic downtown area, a short walk or bike-ride away, is brimming with galleries, coffee shops, bars and restaurants, outfitters, and unique shopping experiences. Catch a local musician, a performance at Pendragon Theatre, or watch a plein air painter on your short trek downtown from Saranac Waterfront Lodge. In the winter, the famed Winter Carnival Ice Palace will rise next to Saranac Waterfront Lodge for a week of festivities in February. This over 100-year old tradition is internationally recognized as one of the best Winter Carnivals in the world. Just a 10-minute ride to the east will land you in Lake Placid, a neighboring town full of shopping, dining, and world-renowned Olympic sites. A 20-minute ride to the west takes you to Tupper Lake, which is experiencing a renaissance of its downtown and waterfront districts. Tupper Lake also home to The Wild Center, a world-class natural history museum with the unique Wild Walk treetop experience. There is so much to explore here and Saranac Waterfront Lodge is at the heart of it all!

A Thoughtful Experience Steeped in History

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." Inspired by Mark Twain's famous quote, Saranac Waterfront Lodge offers a modern, luxe adventure in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains.

Along with Twain, prominent philosophers, literary icons, artists, and performers flocked to the Adirondacks in its early days to escape the rush of urban life, connect with nature, and find inspiration in the stunning beauty surrounding them. With an adventurous spirit, they returned again and again to be renewed by the clean mountain air, lulled by the calming waters, and leave rejuvenated to tackle their pursuits with fresh energy. That legacy has endured, attracting all walks of life to this enchanting place that has held on to its wild character, expansive public spaces & the warm hospitality of its towns. 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 a premier destination in the Adirondack High Peaks Region.
