Property description

This hillside colonial revival home overlooks Lake Flower and is two blocks to downtown Saranac Lake. The 109 year old home is a National Park Service registered historic home. Lake access and full views of Mt. Baker make vacation living splendid. The wrap around front porch has just been rebuilt and filled with wicker furniture. It is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy an adult beverage, a great book, or a nap!

The large home features original architectural details, enormous dining room, hardwood floors, new bathrooms, and extremely comfy beds. We love to cook as a group and the spacious kitchen features a 6 burner Viking range, Bosch dishwasher, Sub Zero, island, quartz counters, and wet bar. Well equipped with lots of china, stemware, and silverware.

This old house also has a 5 port USB charging station for your smartphones, iPod/MP-3 ready sound, Wifi, wireless printing, 40 inch Samsung HDTV, DVD library, and a 2nd floor laundry. We hope you will enjoy our Adirondack retreat as much as we do.

The home has served as central accommodations for family reunions, Lake Placid Ironman, wedding bridal parties, and ski trips. It is always booked for Winter Carnival.

Saranac Lake Village is in the midst of a 6 million acre forever wild state park, with very small and tightly controlled development zones. The Adirondack Park is larger than Yellowstone, Yosemite, Grand Canyon, and Smoky Mountain National Parks combined. Our national wilderness and land conservation principals can be traced to the constitutionally protected New York Forest Preserve, upon which the Adirondack Park was built.

We love Saranac Lake because it has much less than Lake Placid: less traffic, less visitors, less chain stores and less commercialism. You can park your vehicle all week and still be walking distance to everything; market, library, restaurants, parks, live theater, shops, park, outdoor concerts, etc.

Saranac Lake is terrific year round. Summer on the lakes, rivers, streams, and mountain trails are hard to beat. There are 40 miles of connected waterway accessible from Lake Flower. Fall color tours, hiking, and cozy fires are fabulous. Whiteface Mountain, 18 miles away, was voted the 4th best destination resort in 2007 by Conde Nast Traveler. Whiteface is considered the premier Eastern US ski resort by SKI Magazine readers. Winter sports such as youth hockey, cross country skiing at Dewey Mountain Nordic area, and America’s longest running winter carnival right on Lake Flower make Saranac Lake a unique destination for those seeking a Winter Wonderland.

You'll never be bored with all the things to do here. The boat launch is across the lake. You can drop a canoe or kayak in Lake Flower right at the house, but there is no beach front at our home. Rentals for canoes, kayaks, or power boats are readily available in the area. There is a brand new Carousel in town for kids of all ages! The seasonal farmers market is a 5 minute walk. The LP Price Chopper had live lobsters for $7.50 each in June 2016. Mmmmm! Besides the great outdoor activities, you are at the center of Adirondack cultural activities, including nearby museums, historical sites, live music and theater. Or that other favorite sport - shopping in downtown Saranac Lake and shopping in Lake Placid only 10 minutes away. This is an artist's dream - paint or photograph your favorite views, and visit the many art galleries and antique shops in the area.

No phone number is provided due to the number of spam calls received, but I will be happy to call you back if you send an email first. Reservations booked upon an executed rental agreement and a $500 security deposit.
