Visiting Saranac Lake - the All America City, for a day or a week can be a special time. We have lived here for 33 years and raised 4 children. Though we have traveled and lived in several states, we truly appreciate the beauty of the Adirondacks.
This one bedroom apartment is located in the bottom of our home, where a basement would be. However, because of how many of the homes are built on different levels of land, two sides have windows (the porch and side) which let light inside. It has a private entrance in the back of the main house with an enclosed sun porch which can be enjoyed. We have finished a major renovation so everything was given much thought to the comfort of our guests. There is a bathroom off the one bedroom. We also have a pull out couch in the living room with nice bedding and a memory foam topper. In the case of guests using the sofabed, they would have to go through the bedroom to use the bathroom.
Because the apt. has low ceilings of 6 ft. 4 in., we suggest SHORTER statures! (My husband is 5'6 and we feel fine inside.
We have Adirondack chairs and a small firepit for you to enjoy complete with s'mores...anytime of year.
Beach towels are provided so no need to bring yours! An enclosed sunporch to sit on and watch the birds and maybe even our visiting deer.

My husband, Doug and I are high school sweethearts and have been married for 43 yrs. We grew up in the Adirondacks on Lake Champlain in a small town. We were married young, and left the area when Doug entered the Army. It was an adventure for us traveling and living in different areas of the U.S. and Europe. Coming back "home" though made us realize how very special this area is. We love it here and raised our four children in Saranac Lake appreciating the beauty, the fresh air and the many outdoor activities which are so much a part of the Adirondack life - hiking trails and mountains, canoeing, boating, x-country & downhill skiing. Doug enjoys fishing in his spare time. (I love eating them!) Now we are grandparents and enjoy showing the grandkids what we have enjoyed doing with their parents as children. Saranac Lake has so much to offer from weekly fun runs in the summer to our community Pendragon theatre. And we're only a short distance to Lake Placid for all the Olympic venues including Whiteface Mt. or Tupper Lake where you can visit the Wild Center Travel and hour and you're in Essex on Lake Champlain where I grew up!
Some of our favorite places are the secluded walk in beaches in the area...where you can swim in clear water, or just sit and watch a beautiful sunset and listen to the loons.
After my husband retired from his job, we began a cleaning/caretaking service. We work part-time which gives us enough freedom to enjoy this time in our life for family, which is important to us. Because of our line of work, we are very particular with making sure our guests find our apartment as suitable to them as to one of our clients. We have taken utmost care in making it feel like home and hope you will be very comfortable.
