Saranac Lake house description
This comfortable house with 400 feet of wooded lake front was built as a family home about 30 years ago. With solar panels, a brick Russian fireplace (used only when occupied full-time in the winter) and large picture windows facing the beautiful mountain and lake views to the south, it was built to be both energy efficient and to take full advantage of the location. The result is a beautiful home designed to be lived in and enjoyed on a lake front parcel with one of the most beautiful views in the Adirondacks. Evening and morning skies from the dock, eagles soaring overhead and nesting across the bay, and loons calling in the distance are all a regular part of our summers.
Oseetah Lake is on the Saranac River, and part of the Saranac chain of lakes. You can travel by boat to Saranac Lake Village (Lake Flower) and nearby Kiwassa Lake. State operated locks on the river allow easy access upstream by motor boat or canoe to Lower and Upper Saranac Lakes. In all, there are over 25 miles of lakes to explore without leaving your boat, with all the bass fishing, windsurfing, kayaking and other lake front activities you could want. Remote ponds such as Pine Pond are accessible by trail on the other side of the lake.
There are three full size canoes, one single person canoe and a kayak by the dock. Paddles are also stored on site, as are boat cushions. Some PFD's, or life jackets, are be available for adults, but please bring your own for any children. As all children are so different in size it is impossible for us to keep on hand appropriate life jackets for children. Also, please keep in mind that when boating you are required to have one flotation devise on board for every passenger. This can be a life jacket or cushion, but the State doe patrol the lakes in the Adirondacks and boaters have been cited for not having flotation devices. This is equally applicable to kayaks, canoes, sailboats and powerboats.
While there is not a motorboat with the rental, you can either rent one in Saranac Lake and drive it up the river to the house, or bring your own and launch it at the private boat ramp just down the road. Other local marinas on Lake Flower and Lower Saranac Lake also offer rentals that you can drive right to our dock. If you come with a boat there is room to park a boat trailer in the driveway of the house.
The location offers the best of many worlds. Only 8 miles from Main Street Lake Placid, it is far from the traffic, noise and light of that busy tourist town. You can be there for skiing, movies, shopping or dining within 15 minutes, but come back to relax in a more out-of-the-way and low key setting.
In the other direction, Saranac Lake is only 5 miles away. The summer offers evening concerts, live theater at Pendragon Theater, as well as convenient groceries, shopping, hiking, and of course its world famous winter carnival every year. Further on in that direction are more lakes and mountains to explore, as well as the Natural History Museum in Tupper Lake, and the VIC (Visitor Interpretive Center) in Paul Smiths.
And Ray Brook itself offers much of what you would want in addition to the boating, swimming and wintertime snowshoeing and cross country skiing available right on site. Hiking trails, golf, and BBQ are all an easy drive or bike ride away. Trails up Scarface , Little Haystack and McKenzie Mountains all start here. In season, you can find blueberries on all these trails. The Saranac Lake Golf Course is here as well, offering a nice alternative to the crowds in Lake Placid. And in the summer, the Tail O’ the Pup offers barbeque and live music just 3 miles from the house.

A Wonderful Vacation
A Wonderful Vacation
Everything was perfect and we loved the pool table. The home was spotless and seemed to be designed for our convenience. We've visited other area rentals, but the Oseetah Lake Family Home is by far the best. We'll be back.

Recommended for: Families with teenagers, sightseeing, pet owners, romantic getaway, age 55+, families with young children, girls getaway.
We had a wonderful vacation at the very comfortable Oseetah Lake Family Home. It was so easy to work with the family to arrange for the rental. THey are delightful people. The kitchen and bedrooms were perfect and we loved the pool table. Everything was spotless and seemed to be designed for our convenience. But most of all we enjoyed the lakefront, canoes, and fire ring. We've visited other Lake Placid and Saranac Lake vacation rentals, but the Oseetah Lake Family Home is by far the best. We'll be back.
