... Lake Placid is a lovely place to visit, we wish we could stay longer.
The bar in the restaurant brews their own beer so Paul tries a sampler rack of beer. He is so tired after the big ride and we have another big ride ahead of us tomorrow to Bangor.
We have a really good sleep - we have resorted to two double beds rather than our king bed, to ensure we both get good ...
We drove through pouring rain - did not get to stop at Lake Forge - pouring rain. By the time we got to Lake Placid the rain had stopped and it was clearing to see the mountains. Haven't been here for a long time. The whole town is new - the old Lake Placid Club isn't there any more.
We headed out to Whiteface Mountain. FDR started the project - toll road - castle at ...
... of your wish for us to have “anything maple” this morning! John had a full breakfast and I made the mistake of NOT ordering a short stack of pancakes rather than the full thing! As we staggered out of the place 45 minutes later, I doubt that either of us thought we would ever eat again. By the way, oldcat, we didn’t stop at Oscar’s Smoke House but we did pick up some items from the General Store from there, so we think that counts on your ...

We then hiked about 2 miles to the Lake Placid Lodge. Had some great drinks at the bar, and great conversation with the bar tender and other patrons.
Great day. Heading the Burlington, VT and Lake Champlain tomorrow.
Historical Traveler Reviews Saranac Club and Inn Saranac Lake
Loved the Saranac Club & Inn
Just got back from spending the weekend at the Saranac Club & Inn, and I didn't want to waste any time telling the world what a little gem this is. Five beautiful rooms (our's had a fireplace), a fun game room (where we played Trivial Pursuit all night with the owners) and we had one of the best meals we've had in a long time in their dining room. We only wish the place was bigger so that we could return with our whole family next time.
Not wanting to spend another Christmas in Florida, my husband and I decided to go up north and try a cold one for a change. We checked the internet and found the Saranac Club & Inn, and it looked so inviting we called to make a reservation. Tim (the owner) couldn't have been nicer on the phone, and was so informative about the winter activities that the area offered (especially important to newbies like us!) When we arrived we were a little put off, since we were expecting a bigger place (we don't need the Ritz, but the inn only had five rooms, and we thought the service might not be what we were used to.) We needn't have had any fears: while cozy, the inn provided top-notch amenities and service. In fact, it was one of the most luxurious stays we've ever had at an inn - the common rooms were beautiful, our room had a fireplace and some of the most lux linens we've ever slept upon, the non-stop food was gourmet caliber, and the company was stimulating and fun. Overall, the inn truly is a special place in the mountains, and we will definately be returning.
My husband and I had the wonderful pleasure of sharing in a reunion with college friends at the Saranac Club and Inn. It was a beautiful weekend for the weather, surroundings, and especially for our lodgings. We chose the Saranac Club and Inn based on other reviews we read and found that it certainly met with all our expectations.
My husband and I just returned from a wonderful and relaxing week at the Saranac Club and Inn. We usually don't stay at B+Bs, but the reviews at this site combined with the Inn's web page prompted us to take a chance. We're really glad we did. Tim, the GM, could not have been more accommodating and friendly. He quickly put us at ease and made us feel like long-lost friends vs. paying guests.
Having visited many B&Bs over the years, and having suffered bad plumbing, silly decor and just plain mediocre service more times than we care to count, we were extremely impressed with the Saranac Club and Inn. If there is such a thing as perfection, this was it: beautiful furnishings in exquisitely decorated rooms possessing wonderful style without sacrificing warmth and comfort.
I cannot say enough about how wonderful the Saranan Club and Inn truly is. My boyfriend and I just returned from a 3-night stay and our expectations were far exceeded. The inn is charming and romantic, and our room (the Jr. Suite) was beautiful! We had a very large balcony with a rocker and wicker furniture in addition to a wood-burning fireplace in our room. And the decor is lovely!
My wife and I went to the Saranac Club and Inn for our anniversary after choosing it from their web site. We arrived not knowing what to expect. One of the owners, Tim, warmly greeted us at the door, gave us a complete tour of the Inn and made us feel completely welcomed. Our weekend turned out to be among our most memorable. Tim cooked us wonderful breakfasts, made dinner reservations at recommended restaurants, served afternoon tea and wine as well as telling us about places to go and see. We have stayed at some of the best hotels known for service, but we never experienced the service that Tim and his staff provided. We would highly recommend Saranac Club and Inn to anyone.
A Memorable Mountain Vacation
Beautiful, elegant, restful and enjoyable. Just a few "superlatives" to describe the Saranac Club and Inn. Nestled in the peaceful Adirondacks, this lovely inn is totally charming and relaxing, exactly what I was seeking in a mountain getaway. The public rooms are pretty and cozy...and the bedroom (mine, a spacious suite with a working fireplace) was simply gorgeous. The innkeepers, Mike and Tim, are terrific hosts. They are friendly and welcoming -- always eager and available to make one's visit fun, special and memorable. The dining experience was excellent, too: delicious food in an inviting setting. I loved my stay at the Saranac Club and Inn and can hardly wait to return!

Saranac Club and Inn review:
We've traveled all over the U.S. and have taken many cruises on top-notch cruise lines. The Saranac Club and Inn is absolutely one of the nicest places we've stayed!
There is endless coffee and tea all day, an enjoyable afternoon tea, a fabulous happy hour, and a divine dinner! We enjoyed peace, quiet, and fresh air. The fireplaces were all going (in August non the less), and the hospitality, food, company, and the comfortable beds and warmth from Tim and Mike are not to be dismissed. Ammenties & food are 5 star - all the way!
Hats off to the wonderful service we received! We were sad to leave, but when we travel to the Adirondacks again, we will stay at the Saranac Club and Inn.
A Fabulous B&B
The Saranac Club and Inn is a supurb little hideaway in the heart of the charming Adrondak Mountains. The beautiful home has been tastefully redone a year ago by its two wonderful host/owners, Mike and Tim. The common areas are charming and warm; the guest rooms are exquisite; and the host hospitality is unequalled. There is no detail overlooked, and absolutely nothing missed for maximum guest comfort and satisfaction. And, each breakfast is a gourmet spectacular. A trip to this outstanding B&B is a sure-fired winner, and a treat not to be missed.
