Booked last minute to stay overnight after picking up kids at camp in Saranac lake. Staff was very friendly. Booked 2 rooms and they made sure we had adjoining rooms. Kids really enjoyed activities at mirror lake, swimming, paddle boarding and using the paddle boats. Sat out on the balcony and enjoyed the evening views. Had a great stay!

Great view. Great balcony. The lobby and bar was very unique, warm, and welcoming with a great view. Lakeside pool is an ideal location. Paddle boards, kayaks, and peddle boats all complimentary. AJ met us upon arrival and was extremely accommodative and kind. I would recommend second or third floor balcony rooms. Great experience.
