Travel Updates

We look forward to welcoming you back to our mountain village when the time is right is for you to travel comfortably and to enjoy the offerings in Saranac Lake.

Leave No Trace and #LoveYourADK

As we begin to explore the village of Saranac Lake and the amazing scenery and destinations around it, it's important to remember to show love and care for the great outdoors. Getting take out from a local restaurant? Be sure to recycle the packaging! Enjoying a campfire? Keep it in a fire ring! This is a great time to take the Love Your ADK pledge and help preserve our wild spaces for generations.

Kindness is the Adirondack Way

None of this can be done alone. No matter where we live, work, or play, we're all in this together. Let's remember to be kind to each other and send virtual hugs. We'll be better for it in the end.

Thank you for staying safe, and staying inspired!
