2. Hiking, the Skiing of Summer

With multitudes of hiking trails, ranging from novice skill level to intermediate, you can explore the beautiful surroundings around Saranac Waterfront Lodge. Some close by trailheads that visitors love include Ampersand Mountain trail, Jackrabbit trail, Baker Mountain, and Oseetah Lake trail..

3. "I want to ride my Bicycle"

Enjoy the scenery while out getting some invigorating exercise on a mountain bike. Mt. Pisgah, mere minutes away offers riders the opportunities to get both the health benefit of a great ride and the visual splendor of the scenic area. 

4. Fore!

Love golf? You can find it here. Play nine holes or 18. Golf in the Saranac area proves to be a perfect day out in the open, surrounded by outstanding views.

5. Little Ones Love Summer, Too

Kids love the area as much as adults, and what child can resist ice cream on a summer day? You can put a sparkle in any child’s eye with a trip to Mountain Mist Custard or The Pine Cone for a refreshing and delicious treat. Top it off with a spin on the Adirondack Carousel, and you’ve created a memory for even the smallest family member. 

6. Adult Beverages

Having an adults-only vacation? Then odds are you may be interested in sampling some local pub flavors. The Saranac Waterfront Lodge can help you out. Visit the Boathouse Saranac Pub right on the premises, or venture out to the surrounding areas. There are many options for local flavor at surrounding pubs and breweries.

7. Low Key

Not the type to love strenuous activities? No kids? Not much for pub life? No worries, you can find options that are more suited to you, too. Learning local history from Saranac Laboratory museum, built in 1894, proving to be educational and enjoyable. You can also take a ride on the Adirondack Scenic Railroad, to fully embrace your surroundings. Both are guaranteed to be an experience you’ll love when visiting the Saranac Waterfront Lodge in the summer months.

No matter which activities you choose, you can always end up back at the Lodge reminiscing over your adventure by the firelight, under the moon, next to that perfect painting of the setting sun over the water. Enjoy!
