Book now and get ready to discover these 10 great things about Saranac Waterfront Lodge.
  • The premier lakefront location

    Set on the shores of Lake Flower's Pontiac Bay, Saranac Waterfront Lodge is the perfect gateway to everything the Adirondacks have to offer. Lake Placid, Whiteface Mountain Ski Resort, and a plethora of other attractions are nearby. Plus, it's just a short stroll or bike ride from downtown Saranac Lake, a village with a long history as a haven for literary and creative legends such as Mark Twain. That legacy, along with the myriad opportunities for relaxation and adventure, inspire every corner of Saranac Waterfront Lodge.
  • A one-of-a-kind Adirondack atmosphere

    Despite the area's storied history, Saranac Waterfront Lodge is far from the stereotypical stodgy upstate resort. With top-notch service and amenities, the property specializes in family getaways and weddings. Guests of all ages can revel in the laid-back environment and focus on connecting with both people and nature. Even the dog is welcome to share in the fun!
  • Safety in the spotlight

    Unlike most hotels that have had to retrofit their facilities and procedures to mitigate risks during the pandemic, Saranac Waterfront Lodge was built with these safety protocols in mind. Yes, that of course includes following all the latest expert and government guidance, limiting capacity in public spaces, cleaning high-touch areas and items frequently, and providing hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes, and face masks. But that's just the beginning. With mobile check-in, checkout, room keys, and TV controls, guests can enjoy an almost completely contactless stay. In addition, Saranac Waterfront Lodge is one of the first hotels to employ the patented BIOPROTECTUs system, which uses a water-based, antimicrobial technology to protect surfaces continuously for up to 90 days.
  • No-stress social distancing

    Saranac Waterfront Lodge's expansive property makes it easy for guests and staff to keep their social distance while still being active and getting the full Adirondacks experience. Guests have access to paddling, and other equipment rentals to get out on the water, where they can explore the expansive Saranac Chain of Lakes. Other distanced options onsite include mingling safely by the lakeside fire pit, enjoying a little friendly competition on the lawn area, hitting the trails on a mountain hike, and fishing in Lake Flower.
  • Onsite restaurants to write home about

    The hotel's signature restaurant, the Boathouse on Lake Flower, takes full advantage of the lakeside location with panoramic views and deck seating. It even has eight dedicated slips at the onsite marina, so locals and travelers alike can arrive by boat to dock and dine. Regardless of how they arrive, guests enjoy elevated pub fare and regional craft brews. For a more intimate, upscale experience, diners can sample the chef-created, seasonal menu and curated vintages at the 24-seat Wine Bar. Afterward, the Philosophers' Lounge is the perfect spot for relaxing by the fire with a cocktail.
  • Unforgettable events

    Whether social or business, events at Saranac Waterfront Lodge lean toward the luxurious, thanks to a water-view ballroom, customizable catering menus, and extensive options for group activities. Wedding ceremonies get a beautiful backdrop at the lakeside gazebo, while corporate meetings occupy the property's venues for presentations and small conferences. In the ballroom, up to 200 attendees gather for receptions, reunions, and more, complete with outdoor seating and sweeping views of Lake Flower.
  • A sharp eye on sustainability

    Just as safety was a prime focus while building Saranac Waterfront Lodge, so was sustainability. Even beyond its eco-friendly infrastructure, the hotel has implemented practices to protect the planet every day. Those efforts include recycling programs, local ingredients sourced through partnerships with area farms, and a dedication to use alternatives to Styrofoam and plastic. In fact, the U.S. Green Building Council has recognized Saranac Waterfront Lodge with its LEED certification, making it the only certified hotel in the Adirondacks.
  • Plenty of activity all year round

    Lakefront hotels bring forth images of waterskiing, paddle boarding, boating, and fishing. At Saranac Waterfront Lodge, guests get all that in the warmer months - plus hiking and rock climbing on the many local mountains and trails. Come fall, the area offers prime leaf-peeping, and when the cold arrives, it becomes a winter playground, with cross-country and downhill skiing, snowboarding, ice climbing, and snowshoeing. On the water or the slopes, local tours and guides lead the way. And of course, no matter the weather, visitors can also enjoy the hotel's indoor heated pool, fire pits, and fitness center.
  • Contemporary luxury in every guest room

    The 93 accommodations at Saranac Waterfront Lodge combine modern amenities and the comforts of home. After a day full of action, guests retreat to their rooms to find Keurig coffee makers, mini refrigerators, 55-inch TVs with HDMI connections, and high-speed wireless internet - all against a backdrop of lake and mountain panoramas. Some accommodations also feature private balconies, while premium suites and the VIP-worthy Governor's Suite add even more space and luxurious touches.
