From the location on Saranac Lake to the units to the friendly people at the resort, Ampersand Bay could not have been any better for our wedding. Having multiple lawns to spread out during the ceremony and the reception was ideal and with all guests staying on site, nobody has

Sure sounds like you enjoyed the perfect fall getaway with us here at Ampersand Bay Resort! It makes us so happy to hear that our guests make full use of the amazing amenities we offer. I must admit that the morning fog on glassy Lower Saranac Lake, a hot cup of coffee, and a soundtrack of loon calls makes for the perfect Adirondack morning. We hope you will join us again next year and maybe plan for a longer stay ;)

We congregated here for a large family reunion, 48 people who came from many states all the way from California to New Jersey, Maryland, PA, and Florida. The units were ample in room, clean and outfitted exactly as advertised. The beach was a perfect area for all the little
