There is an old lady in Saranac Lake loved by everyone. She is famous, infamous, and in spiffy shape for her age; she's seen a lot of activity in her 92 years. She's the Hotel Saranac  — known as Hot Sara to many locals — and she is the perfect base for your fall vacation in Saranac Lake.

Lake Kushaqua is an Algonquin word which means, “beautiful place to rest,” and it is also a beautiful... [Read More]

Fiddlehead Bistro is a work of art. If you’re in downtown Saranac Lake you can’t miss it — it’s the bright yellow building on the corner of Broadway and Dorsey streets, right next to the Saranac River. Detailing on the outside is simple. There’s a nod to the restaurant’s namesake flora, and a small iron snail that says a lot about the food. It’s delicate... [Read More]

Eating healthy has a rather... challenged... reputation. People can think it means "not tasty." We don't believe in that. We think healthy is also tasty! Here's proof: Locally sourced? Certainly! Few are as devoted to local food as the Adirondack Alps Restaurant (& Ein Stein Pub) at Lake Clear Lodge. (That is their dining room in the picture above.) They have a "100 mile product...

Bacon. We can’t seem to live without it. Some people even have the brilliantly awesome idea of raising it. I wanted to learn more about the local farm that does just that! The Adirondack region is full of local farms, but there is one down the road from Saranac Lake that I’ve heard raises some pretty unique pigs.  Kate Mountain Farm is a 250-acre, biodiverse farm located in Vermontville,...

Resolutions are made to be broken, right? I mean, they're basically just a list of things people want to do but feel like they can't, which is why I've never subscribed to them. So as I thumb my nose at the tradition of resisting temptation, allow me to be the devil on your shoulder. I know you want to break that food indulgence resolution. Doesn't a heaping platter of chorizo sausage and... [Read More]

Bitters and Bones occupies the space Captain Cook’s once inhabited. The new owners did major work on the interior... [Read More]

Can you smell that in the air? What? No, it’s not pumpkin spice! It’s FOOTBALL!  [img:img-0595.jpg] I don’t know about you, but I’ve been anxiously waiting for months to watch guys in thick padding and helmets hurl themselves across a huge field at other guys in thick padding and helmets as they chase around a strangely shaped leather ball.  Yes, football season is finally here.
