Finding Winter Finches — and other Cold-Weather Species

A captivating place to visit any time of year, Saranac Lake especially glistens in the winter. While some dread the cold and snow that winter brings, others see it as a perfect time to bask in the peaceful nature and serene beauty of the season. If you are the latter, Saranac Lake is for you!

Saranac Lake offers a true variety of accommodations, from mom-and-pop run motels to a historic luxury hotel. Whatever your travel style, one common trait of all the lodging is: Not only do they embrace winter, they rejoice in the season. Complete with roaring fires, hot toddies, and delicious feel-good food. With snow falling outside they offer a special respite to settle-in, get cozy, and relax!

Personal touch: Amanda's Motel

At Amanda's Motel you will be greeted by Joe and Eddie, your hosts. They offer geniune Adirondack hospitality where details and comfort are key, and personality is a must. Joe and Eddie will swap stories, point you in the right direction, and always remember your name. Amanda's is open year-round, and conveniently located across from the picturesque Lake Flower. And for those with furry friends, dogs are welcome!

Family-friendly: Best Western Mountain Lake Inn

Saranac Lake's Best Western is where amenities and affordability come together, and where the vibe is always family friendly! McKenzie's Grille is located on site and serves up a hearty breakfast that is a hit with the locals. For a bit of fun, anytime of day, the indoor pool is a hit with kids. 

Nature immersion: Lake Clear Lodge

In the middle of 25 acres of nature, the Lake Clear Lodge is your authentic Adirondack retreat experience. From upscale artisan-built cabins to lakeview suites, the ambiance is of a traditional Great Camp. Warm up by the fire in the beer cellar and enjoy local farm-to-fork inspired cuisine in the main dining room. Stay entertained into the evening with speakeasy raids and lantern-lit sleigh rides. The Lake Clear Lodge is guaranteed to leave a lasting impression! 

Elevated experience: Hotel Saranac

Hotel Saranac is your perfect Adirondack basecamp. Located in the center of town, this historic hotel boasts style and grandeur like no other. The guest rooms are filled with modern comforts and high design. Yet there is something so inviting about this hotel that it feels like a warm hug from an old friend. It won't take you long to kick-back in the ballroom with a craft cocktail, and s'mores (that you can toast yourself)!
