“Quiet Serenity on water.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

We had a lovely four night stay in the Adirondack Motel on Lake Flower. We enjoyed a pretty view in a second floor efficiency apartment (with a small balcony) over looking the water. The apartment was well stocked beyond what I anticipated-including wine glasses, corkscrew and all cooking utensils needed. The owners are friendly, attentive as needed and full of good recommendations for small trips in the area and good places to eat. We walked into town most days to try the restaurants-- Driving only to our planned outings around the area-visiting Lake Placid, canoeing on Lower Saranac, climbing Whiteface Mountain and hiking trails near there and Cascade Mountain. It was nice to wind down in the evening sitting in Adirondack chairs by the lake. Nice freshly baked muffins each morning. Free use of kayaks and canoes were provided! My fiancé and I took out the kayaks to explore the lake which meanders into a stream before emptying into a larger lake. (Only later did we realize we took the kayaks a bit too far out of site of the motel-our fault-the rules are printed clearly on the boathouse door. Sorry!) We heard and saw a loon on the lake. That made my day! Expect a nice pace of life there......we settled into it quickly. Wish we didn't live so far away.....

Clean and Adirondack cozy. Great location. Nice touches like...great soaps ... thick towels ... crisp sheets. Comfy beds....K-cup coffee maker in the room to go with homemade warm muffins in the morning. The fridge and air conditioner worked well. We will be back.

Based on other reviews, we chose this place for 3 nights in June. Very clean and comfortable rooms, with a coffee maker ($1 fee per K-cup) and refrig. Nice shampoo and soap as well - which is getting harder to find in small motels. There are chairs to sit outside your room, near Lake Flower or in a covered gazebo, as well as a firepit and grills. The motel is on a curve of the highway, so there was more road noise than we anticipated, but the overall experience was very pleasant. Suzanne and Fred were very friendly and helpful with info as well as local menus and brochures, but Daisy and Jack really made us smile! The homemade morning muffins are excellent and a great way to start the day.

We recently put Keurig coffee makers in our rooms and are delighted that our guests enjoy the convenience. We supply a complimentary cup for everyone and replenish the in- room K-cups daily. If anyone wishes refills they are available for sale in our lobby along with an unlimited and complimentary selection of tea and hot chocolate. Thank you for staying with us and for posting this thoughtful review!....sue and fred

We arrived at the motel (it's not what comes to mind when you think motel). Three friends stayed there for two nights. Just before the busy season hence really lucked out with our choice.
The place is very clean, tastefully decorated and the friendliness of the owners Suzanne and Fred made this stay so memorable. Situated next to the flower lake we chilled got a chance to rake their canoe out and enjoyed the quietness of lovely sunsets.
There are fresh muffins to be found in the reception area in the mornings. Coffee extra 8826 Arlington

This was the first time that my husband and I had stayed at the Adirondack Motel. It was exactly what we needed as my husband's Mom had just passed away and we needed the "quiet" to put our thoughts together. We could not have found a better-suited motel. The warm welcome that we received was greatly appreciated. Our motel room was awesome.. "rustic-themed"...spotless and very comfortable. Our whole experience was very healing and we hated the thought of leaving on Monday morning. We talked the whole way home about when we could go back and stay longer next time. We took our small boat and actually caught some nice fish to bring home. There is a small beach, BBQ grill, gazebo and lots of chairs to just sit and relax. And they have two beautiful dogs that love to play catch. They do not have a restaurant but directly across the street is a very nice Italian restaurant which came highly recommended. Sue and Fred, we thank you again and we can't wait to come back.

We like to stay here while in Saranac Lake.
Lovely little privately owned motel on Lake Flower.
Owners are very nice and the place is spotless. Short walk to the village and park.
Fresh homemade muffins in the morning.

Just returned from our Corvette Club Weekend at Saranac Lake. We stayed at The Adirondack Motel and it was excellent as usual. Fred was all ready for our group when we arrived. Rooms are clean, comfortable and well equipped. Every room has a fridge and brand new Keurig coffee makers. The homemade muffins in the morning are delicious. The rooms are all newly renovated with beautiful bathrooms. cozy and inviting and the location couldn't be better. Right on the lake,access to boating and swimming.
Our group stays at the property every June and again in early December for our annual club Holiday party.
If you are heading up to Saranac Lake make sure to give Fred And Sue a call and tell them Pat sent you!!!
