This place is wonderful: cute, clean, and right on the lake. Lovely grounds as well. It was recommended to us by family members who had stayed there, and we weren't disappointed. Susan (one of the owners) was helpful, flexible, and very kind. We'll be back!

This place isn't for you if you prefer to stay in national chain hotels because it isn't that at all. It's an older motel that has a homey feeling. The owner-managers are very helpful and friendly. The beds were comfortable and the baths and rooms were spotless. It's right on the lake and has a nice grassy area to sit.... More

For the price it is a very nice little hotel run by its owners:) This establishment is clean, neat and is on the lake. I think they have kayaks and or canoes for the guests. There is a free boat launch a few hundred feet from the hotel

I cannot say enough nice things about this motel and the owners. We were looking for a pet friendly place to stay somewhere in the Adirondacks.....this was such a perfect choice! My husband and I traveled for a week throughout New York with our Black Lab Molly; we could not have been happier with this quaint, "old school" motel.....adorably decorated... More

First of all, if you are looking for a brand new Hilton-style stay, this is not it, nor should it be. You are in the Adirondacks after all. The owners are wonderful, helpful with advice, and very pleasant. You can walk into town in a few minutes. It reminded me of the various places we stayed when I was a... More

We travelled to Saranac Lake to go to a concert being held at the Waterhole. We read the reviews online for this motel. What kept coming up was clean, beautiful view on the lake. It was all true. It is a family owned motel, the owners are very sweet, there was a kerig coffee maker with pods in the room,... More

This is such a great little place. Our room was immaculate. It's centrally located and family owned and every room has a nice view of Flower Lake. My family and I loved this cute motel and would definitely stay here again. The owners are also very nice

After a nearly 12 1/2 hour drive to the Lake Saranac area, I was grateful for having reserved a Boathouse suite where we stayed for one night, prior to vacationing in Upper Lake Saranac for two weeks. The Boathouse Suite is on the lake shore, with a lovely view of Saranac Lake and surrounding area . The room was small,... More
