Such a quaint area and lake. Beautiful in the early evening. We drove around it and stopped at some of the sites. Loved it.

No activity whatsoever

The scenery around Saranac Lake is fine but the town has no activity and looks deserted. Not a pleasant experience. Lake Placid is a much better choice

The Outdoors at your Door
Jul 2020
More sedate than Lake Placid, there are lakes and hiking trails in all directions. The downtown is cute and struggling. There were some restaurants we wanted to try, but the paired back schedule during Covid 19 meant those at the top of our list were dark. This is a great place for people who hike, canoe, ski and enjoy outdoor sports. For those of us who prefer the indoor activities, a little bland.

Lovely place to stop at
Jul 2020 • Family
We spent the afternoon here passing through to lake placid from tupper lake. The water in the river and the lake is just beautiful. The shops are fun to walk in and out of. Everyone was so nice. What a great stop.

The Great Outdoors
Jul 2020 • Couples
If you enjoy the great outdoors, then you may enjoy visiting this part of the United States. Many people experience the water from the perspective of a motorboat. Others paddle a canoe or kayak. There are hiking trails. Some come here to hunt. Along the way are small shops, mostly mom-and-pop owned, that are reminiscent of a throwback era.

Not worth a visit
Jun 2020
While it may be a nice place to live, there really is no reason to visit. It is an alternative to Lake Placid, but Lake Placid is so good, that makes this an unnecessary stop.

In the heart of the Adirondacks--outdoor paradise.
Jan 2020
Quaint small town in the heart of the Adirondacks--it really is an outdoor paradise. From the close proximity to Lake Placid and WhiteFace it is a great escape from the tourity stuff in those places. Excellent hiking, camping and trails.
