Saranac Lake house description

This is a unique vacation rental for one or two people. Have the second floor all to yourself in the house where Inner Quest Yoga and Wellness Center operates on the main floor. The Nook's entrance is separate from the hosts. The main room has a comfortable queen sized bed, loveseat, secretary's desk, dresser and Morris chair. The kitchenette is well equipped with a compact refrigerator, microwave, toaster, and Keurig coffee maker, and other kitchen essentials. The Nook includes a large private bath with lovely new slipper soaking tub with hand held shower and the use of a full bath with stand-up shower directly down the stairs. During the warmer months there is A/C and guests may use the front deck with bistro table and chairs.

Your hosts, Mary and Kevin Bartel, reside in the lower level. They honor their guests privacy but, are happy to assist in making your visit comfortable and to assist in making recommendations for things to do and places to go!

Guests best suited for The Nook will appreciate the quiet nature of the facility, that there is a shoes off policy, no smoking permitted in or on the premises, and that pets are unable to be accommodated. Check-in time 4PM (many times earlier - communicate with the hosts to find out), check-out 11AM.

Wellness Center Offerings
Guests are welcome to attend group yoga, stretch, meditation and tai chi classes complimentary. Appointments may be made for private yoga sessions, yoga therapy, massage or bodywork sessions. Check the bodyworks link above for a menu of services and booking information. As an added benefit to our guests you may receive a 75 minute Swedish Massage or Shiatsu session for the one hour rate.

About our location
The Nook is conveniently located a short walk from Saranac Lakes’ downtown shops, restaurants and artist galleries. The building behind The Nook is BluSeed Studios, featuring art exhibitions, workshops and live music performances. Across the street kitty corner is a small park with a tennis court and basketball court. Less than a mile away is the towns’ municipal beach, park and picnic area at Lake Colby - always a lovely spot to watch the sunset and lower Saranac Lake boat launch, which gives access to the spectacular Saranac chain of lakes.

Saranac Lake
The town of Saranac Lake serves as a great vacation spot for outdoor enthusiasts, no matter the time of year! Nearby find great road biking, canoeing, hiking, fishing, snow shoeing and x-c skiing. Downhill skiers may explore Titus, Big Tupper and Whiteface Mountains each approximately 30 minutes away. Saranac Lake’s history continues as a health and wellness getaway location. Come see why Saranac Lake is one of the Northeast's pioneering health resorts and why a get away here in the Great North Woods is plain ole healing. Breath, relax, feel and be.

It’s not really a small space … but certainly a cozy place ... one guest said we may want to put a warning on our site - 'don't be surprised if you end up extending your stay!'

We call the upstairs of our home The Nook, as for us it is two floors above where we dwell and it just has a special good feeling to take refuge. The slanted lower ceilings, the lighting, the feng shui gives us that sense. We wish to share the charm of The Nook at Inner Quest with you - visitors, friends, and family. Perhaps when you come, you’ll share in your words how The Nook provided shelter upon return from your ADK outings.

May you be happy, Mary & Kevin

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2005

                          About the owner: We love the Adirondacks. We moved here together in 1988 so we could live an active yet peaceful mountain lifestyle. We enjoy all seasons playing outdoors: hiking, biking, walking, canoeing, x-c skiing and snow shoeing primarily. Let us help you fall in love with the Adks.

                          Why the Owner Chose Saranac Lake:
                          The property was purchased in 2005 to open a Yoga and Wellness Center where locals and visitors could find options for rejuvenating themselves. In June 2013, Kevin and I downsized, sold our home and built an apt. in the basement so we could save money and travel more. In Jan. 2014 the upstairs became available for rent and we decided to turn it into a vacation rental. We felt the nature of the facility, the special services we offer here, and the convenient location to the downtown area would work well for many visitors.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          The Nook is like home yet a floor below there are holistic services such as yoga, stretch, and tai chi group or private classes, yoga therapy, massage and other body work services available.
