Saranac Lake has a lot to offer....

Saranac Lake is a great place to live and work. Residents and visitors are attracted to the area's unparalleled outdoor setting, world-class recreational opportunities, and the Village's historic and vibrant downtown. With a strong tourism sector, growing arts community, and renowned institutions such as Trudeau Institute, Amercan Management Association, and St. Joseph's Rehabilitation Center, the region has a surprisingly diverse and stable economy. Most recently, Saranac Lake has been positioning itself as a small but vibrant center for biotechnology companies.

As the population and service center for the northern Adirondacks, the Saranac Lake region hosts Adirondack Regional Airport, the only airport in the Adirondack Park with commercial service, Adirondack Health, Paul Smith's College, and North Country Community College. Saranac Lake Central School District, the largest district by land area in New York State, boasts strong art and music programs. Adjacent to the airport is the only business park in the Adirondacks. The Adirondack Regional Business Park features 100 acres, designed to accommodate up to 15 developable sites ranging from 3.4 to 11.8 acres with associated parking lots, loading docks, electric service, telephone, cable, and on-site water and septic systems. 

Saranac Lake is conveniently lcoated less than three hours from Albany, NY, Burlington, VT, and Montreal, Canada. The area is served by an excellent state highway system that easily connects travelers to Interstate 87. Businesses in the region also have access to the world through a robust and growing fiber optic network.

The community is eager to assist both businesses and families that wish to relocate here. For more information about local economic development efforts in the village, call the Village of Saranac Lake Community Development Department at (518) 891-4150. 

With a quality of life that offers world-class recreational opportunities, arts and culture, and a beautiful and pristine setting, Saranac Lake is a great place to grow!
