Stayed there again. I was there in August to move my son back into his college. This place is even better then I remembered. Clean room, friendly workers, great view, good price. The only thing I could complain about is they need more , or better parking. That kinda shows how great this place is.

I had read some of the bad reviews and wonder which rooms they had. My room was really excellent and I found the staff responsive. The bed was very comfortable. I like a very firm bed and this was quite firm though not like my bed at home. It would have been nice to have a desk for my laptop... More

I stayed in a superior room with lake view. My room was clean with updated linens, flat screen TV, microwave, & fridge. My bathroom had a tile shower. The bath soap, shampoo & conditioner are organic with minimal waste packaging (Bee Kind) which was thoughtful . I actually really loved the shampoo & conditioner. I wish there was a suitcase...

It gets one star for the sweet housekeeper who we returned our key to after checking in. The owner was not to be found. The mattresses were old and sunken in, the bathroom tiny and barely had enough room to turn around. The curtains wouldn't close and the room smelled of mold. The lake view was of a public dock....

I liked this place. You can canoe and pedal boat for free (included in the $10 resort fee). It is an Inn, a little run down feeling, but I had no issue with cleanliness. The photos certainly look much better than what it is. My wife did not like this place, so depends on who you ask... The problem with... More

Staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and had a great view of the lake, in fact the lake was about 50 feet from our door. Amenities included canoes, kayaks, paddle boards, paddle boats, fishing gear, bicycles, etc. Unfortunately we didn't have time to enjoy these. Maybe next time.

The following things happened to us while staying last week: The first was no heated pool-we arrived to see a closed pool. This was advertised on you web site to be open till 9/15 The man (elderly gentleman) told us we can still swim... More

When we come to the ADK, we stay here in a lakefront room with balcony. Saranac Lake village is a short hop away as well as a short drive to Lake Placid. We take advantage of all Gauthier's has to offer, wonderful water sports equipment is provided and the views are wonderful. We also rent a pontoon boat when we... More

Stayed in the Superior Queen Lakefront room. The view was amazing even though a storm came in late that night. The bathroom was small but the room size was very comfortable. All inclusive with kayaks, canoes, stand up paddle boards & paddle boats, bikes, tennis, pool, basketball, fishing and all the items needed to catch a nice size fish, chalk,... More

My wife and I along with another couple recently spent two nights at the Inn. Our rooms were located right on the lakefront and the view from our room was amazing. There are kayaks and sup boards available (free for guests) and every day we paddled around the perimeter of this beautiful lake. This is a great place for families... More
