“Amazing place to stay!”
Reviewed June 30, 2011

We stayed for 2 nights and the room was very nice, clean, bed was comfortable. Can't beat the location, directly ON the lake, literally 10 steps from our door. Free use of Kayaks was nice too, spectacular scenery. Great price too.

Initially, my son and I chose the Saranac Lake Inn for our annual father/son fishing trip because of its lakefront location and close proximity to the public boat launch. But we got so much more! Our lakefront room was spacious, well-appointed, comfortable with green amenities and came with our own boat dock. The room afforded us spectacular views of the mountains and sunsets.

On-site owners - Doug, Dan and Nicole - are gracious, helpful and readily available. They recommended local restaurants and fishing hotspots. They exude a caring for both their guests and property. We were so impressed we already booked the same room for next year.

We are so glad you found your new Father/ Son Vacation spot. We love repeat guests- it is so nice to catch up every year. Glad the fishing was great for you both as well.

From the first "hello" I knew we would be pleased. And that we were. Nice, clean, quiet room facing the water, very friendly staff. Free kayak use made for a beautiful early morning paddle on Flower Lake. We'll be back. Also close to town, art galleries and restaurants.

To start, Gauthier's is ON the Lake. There is a Best Western across he street but it is barely Lake View. The amenities were plentiful. Canoes, kayaks, & paddle boats are all free no matter what room you stay in. If I needed anything all I had to do was ask and the owners were extremely friendly and knowledgeable of the area. The rooms and beds were great and it looked as tho the bathroom was renovated very recently. The shower was really refreshing after a long day of kayaking and I seriously want to change my shower head at home with one of theirs.

When I am on vacation, I tend to not stay alot of my time in the room of where I stay. If I wanted that then I would just book a hotel room at the holiday Inn in Bangor. Its great that Gauthier's is not in Lake Placid but only 6 minutes away is very convenient. It can become very cramped in Lake Placid!

My girlfriend and I enjoyed the hospitality that the owners and Nicole showed us. Shown us the same respect as if a neighbor had invited us over for dinner. With the pristine setting, Gauthier's has the greatest location in Saranac Lake by far.

This is our 2nd time staying at Gauthier's and it was even better than the 1st time. Nice upgrades in the bathroom. Loved the down comforters! I look in the corners and this hotel was extremely clean! The owners are really friendly and cater to your needs. We will go again!

Husband and I wanted to get away for an early ski vacation and Gauthier's had a great deal on for accommodations and lift tickets to Whiteface. We stayed in a room with a full kitchen and it was great - we were able to walk over to the grocery store and grab our supplies and cook all of our meals in the room. The bed was very comfortable, and we were so exhausted from skiing all day that we fell asleep almost immediately. The room looked like a typical motor lodge room - nothing special but it was clean and comfortable.

We decided to stay one extra day and needed to change rooms because ours was already booked. I'm glad we did because the beautiful deluxe room with the super-comfy king size bed and seating area with a view of the lake was so much more romantic than the full kitchen room.

The Gauthier brothers are awesome and super helpful and friendly. Hot coffee in the mornings, plus plenty of great advice on where to go in the evenings. Anything we needed we just had to ask and it was taken care of.

And you can't beat the price - I think it worked out to about $60 per person per day, including lift tickets to Whiteface.

It was a most enjoyable stay despite a 6" snow storm. the rooms were very clean and the bed so comfortable. I had a view of the frozen lake and it was still beautiful. Some guests were asking about skating on the ice, so my next stay I am bringing the skates. The owners are very accommodating, and very pleasant...
