My husband & I stayed in the Twain room for the weekend. The price seemed high, but there weren't many options for Saranac Lake, due to parents weekend at Paul Smith's college. We chose a room without a TV since we mainly needed a place to sleep. The TV in the bar area was very small and the bar stools... More

It was nice in an old historic house kind of way. The Bartlett room was very spacious but could have used some mechanical upgrades, some may consider this to add to the charm of the place. All the lights were pull switch operated and made for clumsy entrances in the dark. The bathroom was just ok. It was wall to... More

We spent a Saturday night here as part of a "get away" weekend with our adult kids and their wives in mid April. (The Saranac Lake "Daffest" was going on and events were happening in the town) The inn itself has quintessential Adirondack charm and is tastefully furnished with periodic decor and furniture. Meg the owner & inn keeper met... More

We traveled to Saranac Lake and Lake Placid for the tail end of Winter Carnival for the third year in a row. The owner of The Porcupine was very accommodating with our extremely late arrival(trying to beat a huge storm), leaving a key and getting up to be sure we had what we needed. The room we were in was... More

...I remember spending a lovely weekend at this Inn at Saranac Lake. My husband and I had the entire place to ourselves that time in October because there were not any other guests. We rented the Mohawk suite with a fireplace and extra TV room. The suite was nicely appointed and the bed was comfortable. The only thing that could... More

Beautiful and comfortable B&B with romantic suite and plush bed. Charming. Breakfasts were good too. The owner served hearty but creative breakfasts and she knew the good hiking and restaurants in Saranac and Placid.

We spent one night at the Porcupine... the place has charm and you can feel the history. However, the owner was unfriendly (e.g. she literally kicked us out at 11.30 am while we were checking emails in the lobby...), not flexible at all and breakfast was very basic (1 waffle with apple per person). Overpriced for what you get.

My husband and I stole away for a romantic rendezvous at the Porcupine... and we still can't stop talking about it. This getaway has become one of the great "references" of our romance. It is impossible to understand the complaints registered on this site; my husband and I are both in the international hospitality industry and we can say that... More

I can't say enough good things about the Porcupine or it's owner Meg. She made us feel right at home, gave us great info on places to eat and things to do in the area. It was like staying at a friends home with how warmly we were welcomed. The rooms are beautiful as is the entire inn. The rooms... More

My Husband and I stayed here for two nights in mid July. It is a large rambling house, with an amazing wood staircase and decorated lovely. Although a very big house, it still manages to feel cosy. Mostly it is decorated well, but in places it does need some work & it looked tired, but everything worked perfectly for us.... More
