Come see what makes us decidedly different

Winter in Saranac Lake is like no other. Where outdoor winter fun meets a vibrant town that comes to life when the temperature drops, you'll find unique adventures on and off the trail. Downtown is filled with fascinating and fun attractions, unique shops, locally-owned chef-run eateries, and engaging art galleries and studios perfect for unwinding. With a rich and unusual history, any time of year is good for stopping by the Saranac Laboratory Museum, where visitors can learn about the village’s history as a tuberculosis cure center. Afterward, enjoy a picture-perfect stroll through downtown and enjoy a self-guided walking tour of memorable sites.

Planning your yearly snowmobiling tour, or simply want to take a stroll in your trusty snowshoes? The trails of the Saranac Lake region weave through the fabric of this adorable mountain town, getting you on the trails right from your stay. When you're done playing in the snow, local restaurants and breweries are serving up the best in comfort food and unique cuisine. Downtown is a place where the woods meet the pavement. A carefree stroll will let you discover picturesque parks, colorful murals, a relaxing river walk, and plenty of places where the nearby snow-capped mountains peek from behind buildings.
