My husband & I were invited to a special birthday bash at the Saranac Lake Adirondack Carousel the other night. Look for our review of that, too.
The motel is right on the lake and very centrally located to many restaurants, and the town of Saranac Lake. There's a nice grassy area outside the door, which is perfect for walking the dog, Noodle, Our little, 15 month old cocka-poo, loved it. The owners had two Springer Spaniels, who canoodled around with him. They all had a fine time.
The room was on the smallish side, (after all it is an older motel, with two double beds -- but everything was in great shape. The place is super clean, the beds were very comfy and the shower was bliss. We didn't spend a whole lot of time there, because there's so much to see now that fall has officially begun. There was fog and drizzle overnight, but the leaves looked beautiful in the morning. There are many photos to download.
We'd recommend this motel to anyone looking for a clean, place that takes dogs, and is less expensive than the chains in the area. It was a nice quiet trip. The plus for my husband was the brewery down the road and the two brewpubs in Lake Placid. I loved the scenery.More
