Our experience at Gauthier's was so good that we regretted not being able to stay longer. The hospitality was first-class, with spotless rooms, clean swimming pool, and outstanding service. Staff's courtesy was just amazing. Amenities include free canoe and kayak at the nearby lake. Reasonable price, relaxed atmosphere... we couldn't have asked for anything better. Gauthier's will definitely be our...

The prices was great. We didn't have reservations and stopped in several motels to see what was available and at what prices. This place had the lowest price at $79. We asked to view the room and it was as clean as my house - the only problem was that the previous occupant had cooked something that smelled the place...

I am so happy we found this place. Great location for Saranac and Placid hiking. We are already planning our next trip to the area. This hotel is a perfect setup-free bike rentals for exploring the area, fishing equipment (right on the lake) and canoe/kayak loaners. The rooms are clean and updated. The staff was spectacular and so friendly. I...

Stepping out of the room and being 20 feet from the water was wonderful. Affordable and scenic. A quick car ride to Lake Placid -with all it's shops, eateries, and more- it was a great vacation. Hotel has kayaks, paddle boats, and bikes that you can use and no rental fees. We stayed in a lakeside suite, which has just...

The door to our room was 4 steps away from the lake. We took the free kayaks out on Saranac Lake and then came back to the room and sat out and watched the sunset over the mountains. The staff was extremely accommodating and professional. The employee at the front desk assisted us in finding a great bar and grill...

We have a relative in the area who recommended this place and we weren't disappointed. They have on site paddle boats and kayaks for free. They loaned me and my 5 year old son fishing poles (and worms!!) and he caught his first fish. A memory to cherish forever! There are board games to borrow if it rains and the...

We stayed here for a weekend getaway. The rooms were clean and looked like they were recently fixed up. We got the parking lot view (which was cheaper) but we spent most of daylight outside, so we didn't mind. They have several kayaks, canoes, and paddleboats that you can use. The lake is calm and nice to paddle around on....

I have never experienced such a tiny hotel room in my 50 years of travelling. Granted I didn't realize that " intimate" in the description meant postage stamp size. The outstanding view was of the rear end of boats moored at the dock. The other window housed an air conditioner and was covered partially by a cedar tree and a...

While visiting family and seeing the sites in the area we booked a room at Gauthier's for the evening.
