              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2003

              About the owner: We have loved having our family grow up in this lovely home! We are sure your family will love to gather here and make memories too!

              Why the Owner Chose Saranac Lake:
              When we first saw this house, we couldn't believe it would be ours! It was designed by famed architect William Distin in 1920, he also designed many Great Camps of the Adirondacks, including The Rockefellers. Nature and all her activities are so accessible here, every season.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              In addition to the fabulous setting on Turtle Pond, we have loved the giant windows that let the outdoors in, the sunroom off the Master Bedroom, and the way the Family Room allows for movies, chatting and game playing with the fireplace keeping you cozy!
