Must visit for water enthusiasts : is there anything better than 6:00 am cayaking on the lake next door...? Yes. 6:00 am cayaking on the lake next door free of charge :-) Cayaks, canoes, paddle boards - it's all there waiting for you

My husband I chose this hotel for our short honeymoon. I personally really like this hotel. It's small and cute and offers many things you don't see at most hotels. We had kayaks and paddle boats, canoes, tennis racquets and bicycles all free for your use during your stay. There were many chairs to sit around Lake Flower and just... More

This was a quick booking for an overnight visit. The hotel is cute and has a great view- many of the rooms have lake views but even ours (which didn't) only requires turning ninety degrees. We didn't rent any of the available equipment - bikes, canoes, etc. but they were right there and accessible and the clerk at the desk... More

This place is cool, since they let you use kayaks, canoes and bikes, plus they have a pool! Some of the rooms look out over the lake. It was clean and the staff was friendly. We only spent one night but there is so much to do and see in this area! We hope to come back!

My husband and I took an extended weekend to the Adirondacks and were looking for an easy, relaxing getaway. Gauthier's fit the bill! Located on beautiful Lake Flower, we were warmly greeted at check-in and then shown to the lake's edge where Gauthier's keeps a nice selection of canoes, kayaks and paddle boats for their guests use. Our room, which... More

My son and I escaped for a quick trip to Saranac Lake. We had a great time using the kayaks at the Gauthier! The staff were friendly and helpful and they other guests were so nice. Our room had a balcony that overlooked the water, so we enjoyed it in the evening. Great location and great price!

We went to Saranac Lake to celebrate a birthday weekend. Gauthier's is right on the water and has kayaks and other water equipment you can borrow. The staff is friendly, knowledgable and accommodating. The facility itself is a bit dated, but clean and comfortable.

I never ended up staying here because they made it so difficult to make a reservation for a business. The first call I made was met with the fact that they do have government rates but unsure about purchase orders, tax exempt, etc. They'll have the manager call me back. Never happened. Called back. Second call revealed that they don't... More

My husband and I needed a cute place to stay with a nice view and some food nearby. We were blown away with the great service David provided and were thrilled when we saw that our room was just steps away from the water. The kayaks and canoes were also available at no extra charge, which was great! The room... More

Very glad we chose this place. The manager was very friendly and helpful at check in, gave us extra pods for the Keurig. It was cold and drizzly so we were not into checking out the watercraft or lake. We did very much enjoy sitting in the comfy chairs in front of the lake view in our room. Close to... More
