Saranac Lake house description

Near the quiet southern shore of the sublimely beautiful Upper Saranac Lake lies this enchanting and peaceful year round retreat for those who appreciate charm and serenity. This home is situated in a semi-private neighborhood and offers 1 King bed, 1 Queen bed and 1 Twin bed with 3 baths and is approximately 1800 sq feet on 5 park like acres. Artists and writers flow with effortless inspiration here. And so, it seems, does everyone else. A 'Fairytale like Healing Woods” it has commonly been described as...

There is a unique, fully equipped kitchen, outdoor screened dining porch, sundeck, sunroom, perennial gardens & blueberries in August. There is an expansive lawn for games. Just about all linens, towels, pillows, and blankets are provided, along with books, videos and games in the library. Just bring your personal BEACH towels. There are 2 kayaks and 1 canoe (with adult and youth life vests) available for your enjoyment. You may want to bring personal safety vests for your child(ren) for ultimate best fit, if you have.

The lovely semi-private shared beach (Upper Saranac Lake) is a 5-7 minute park- like stroll from the home. It offers a safety buffer zone for those with younger children. And a much quieter atmosphere with no boats or jet skis noisily jetting by. With a grass lawn, the beach is sandy with a gentle, gradual drop-off, just perfect for little ones. There are also many public beaches and boat launches to chose from nearby.

The High Peaks Wilderness area, directly across our drive, offers you hiking, biking on endless trails and canoe access to the Stoney Creek Ponds and the Racquette River. The popular Ampersand Trail is minutes up the road, as well as one of our favorites, the Deer Pond trail, a gentle hike for children.

Golfers will love the Saranac Inn Golf Club, ten minutes up the road founded at the turn of the century and designed by Scottish pro and architect, Seymour Dunn; this 18 hole course was designed using the natural terrain to provide a great golfing experience with lovely mountain views.
Adventurers can traverse 30 miles of waterways that connect the lakes Oseetah, Kiwassa, Lower and Middle Saranac Lakes. Travel through the lock system which raises and lowers your watercraft to the level of the connecting lake. And check out the 25,000 acre St. Regis Wilderness canoe region nearby. In the wintertime, cross country trails abound right out your door and Whiteface mountain for alpine skiing is a direct 45 minute drive.

At the Paul Smiths Visitors Interpretive Center, the 'VIC', you can explore gentle hiking trails and learn about the Adirondack region. And be sure to check out the whole wild world of the Adirondacks in Tupper Lake at our Natural History Museum of the Adirondacks, (Also known as 'The Wild Center')

On Sunday, you can ride your bikes or walk to the Chapel bound boat launch which takes you to non-denominational services at Chapel Island, a short ride/walk away via the Indian Carry Public Access/Fishing path off rte 3, just yards from our driveway. Chapel Island opens its summer season Sunday June 29 and continues through August 31, 2014. Boat transportation is available every Sunday morning; safety vests are provided. The Chapel Bound pontoon boat leaves from Indian Carry off Rt. 3 at the end of Old Dock Road. The first boat trip leaves for the picturesque ride at 10:15 AM and again at 10:35 AM. The service begins at 11 AM. After the service, the Chapel Bound will return you to the dock at Indian Carry.

The state of New York owns almost 80% of our township--called 'Forest Preserve' and has been constitutionally protected for the enjoyment of all of us since 1894. No rampant development allowed. The 'Adirondack Park' is the largest park in the nation outside of Alaska. Indians used to carry their canoes through our land, thus our name, Indian Carry. We have heritage strains of Brook Trout in our ponds and streams that were here before our first natives settled the area.


Your DEPARTURE CLEANING is done for you for the most part--all you need to do is kindly strip two beds and start the first load of laundry for my sweet Housekeeper and gather all your trash to the garage bin.
All linens are provided, but again, please do bring your personal BEACH towels.

Come enjoy the Healing Woods - Secluded, yet very convenient to all amenities...23 minutes to our Olympic village of Lake Placid, 15 minutes to Saranac Lake, 8 minutes to Tupper Lake, 2.5 hours to Montreal.

                              About the owner: I live in Aspen, Colorado during the winter and spend the summers managing this beautiful home. I warmly welcome you to create your fond memories in the 'Healing Woods' this year...

                              Why the Owner Chose Saranac Lake:
                              It was geographically close to my parents who were in their chapter of needing my care.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              Listening to the first signs of warmth-the spring peepers, the frogs mating in the pond, the beautiful song of the Wood Thrush in Summer, the wild blueberries in August, the calm, clean tranquility of the lakes, a kayak cruise at dusk with musical calls of the loons...you can find nature's gentle music and quiet amidst all the recreational options here.
