“I love my Hometown”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2012

Saranac Lake is a lovely old town nestled in the Adirondacks. It has a lot of great history and lots of seasonal activities for everyone to enjoy. It is not a commercial town, you will not find a Walmart here, just a lot of nice people and a great Community Store. Many good little restaurants and specialty stores in which to browse. In season you can ride the old train that used to serve our area and soon there will have a unique carousel for everyone to enjoy.

“Touring Lake Saranac in a handmade Hacker Craft”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2012

Hmmmm, does it get any better than touring stunning Saranac Lake in the Adirondacks with a bottle of champagne... in a handmade Hacker Craft teak boat? What a gorgeous body of water, and what with so many historical places all around, this is a lake you'll want to just cruise around for hours!

“Beautiful lake!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2011

My husband and I rented a pontoon boat from Crescent Bay Inc and spent a few hours on this lake and it was great. There are lots of islands and beautiful views from the water, lots of places to explore and the water was warm to swim in!
