While driving out to the ice rink in Saranac, we passed this huge ice sculpture. The kids wanted us stop to take photos, but we were running late to the rink. It was made from blocks of ice. Unfortunately, it was being taken apart when we passed by on our way home so missed the photo op. Next time, we... More

Great town, lot's to do and see. Winter Carnival is a fun time for all! Lake placid is a hop away. In the summer you can camp and hike. Lot's of great local people.Nothing beats the mountain fresh air. Its so clean and refreshing. Wonderful scenic views. You can take the train a check them out.

I was in Saranac Lake in upstate New York just this Saturday 27th 2014. I saw that a antique place was open called Cassidy's Antique's ( was told after the owner's name is Linda Cassidy). I wheeled in with my vehicle and noticed the owner was outside talking with someone. As I got out of the vehicle and proceeded to... More

Saranac Lake is a beautiful town with a marvelous lake, shopping area, and sumptuous restaurants. I love its proximity to Lake Placid and the ice castle that is built there every winter.

Everyone has a favorite place or two that seems to be special to them. Lower Saranac Lake Islands in the Adirondacks affords you the opportunity to camp in relative isolation on your own island in the middle of a lake with virtually no development. This is hard to come by, if not impossible, in many parts of the country. The... More

Six of us went to the tip of the lake for a picnic. We found a spot with a table right on the edge of the lake so it was very scenic. After our picnic we spent some time just sitting there and talking because it was really nice. HIghly recommened.

A full page ad in the adirondack living magazine made us pack up and take the trip to saranac lake, taking time off of work and booking a room, totally prepared for vendors and good ole music. What we got was a tent with locals and some horrible beer that we threw out after one sip and music you could... More

We stayed in a friend's boathouse in early October. The loons were the loudest sound around and we kayaked, motor-boated and dreamed all weekend. This place is an artist's and writer's dream. The hiking is wonderful, mountains are all around. Don't miss the October color!! Antiquing and restaurants abound in the town of Saranac.

The area is very beautiful. The lake and the camps are worth the trip. The mountain views are spectacular. Great fishing, hunting and boating! The village looks a little run down. It is very difficult to find a good restaurant with quality food at a reasonable price. We ate most of our meals in Lake Placid. While it may have... More
