“Very good deal - hospitality guaranteed!”
Reviewed 8 July 2012

My husband and I spent one night on July 4th at Jack and Emily's place. Everyhing was great: the location : 5 minute walk from downtown Saranac Lake, and yet quiet and isolated from the noise and incomfort of the city. A beautiful view over Lake flower. A nicely decorated house with lots of photographs that make you imagine who the people who live here are: maybe former ski champions? We loved the early 20th century style bathrooms! Jack and Emily presence is all around but yet they do not impose themselves upon their guests. In the morning when we finally found out who Jack was, we discovered a gentlemen who made us "at home" and prepared one of the best break fast ever! Thanks again!

We stayed in the Blue Room last night. It's a beautiful big house originally used for tuberculosis patients (as are many of the houses in Saranac Lake). Loads of wood trimming and paneling and lots of neat things to look at.

Be warned that there are 73 steps to reach the house. The main floor has a large living room and dining room (common areas). The second floor has 3 bedrooms and 2 shared bathrooms. The top floor has 2 bedrooms and 1 shared bathroom. The rooms are simple and spacious enough. We found our bed to be a bit too soft for us, as we prefer hard mattresses. The rooms are simply decorated, which I appreciate, as I cannot stomach B&B's that are overdecorated with flowers on the wallpaper, bedspreads, tons of tacky trinkets. If you are a light sleeper, then I recommend earplugs, as old houses can be creaky and the grandfather clock in the dining room chimes every hour. I used earplugs and didn't hear a thing. There is also a pool table room, and loads of books, magazines, puzzles, games and a piano.

The owner, Jack, is very personable. For breakfast he offers eggs, toast, pancakes, waffles, bacon and will cook you what you want. Cereal is also provided, as well as coffee, tea and OJ. No need to go hungry.

Fogarty's B&B is the home of Jack and Emily Fogarty on the shores of Saranac Lake, a 15-minute drive from Lake Placid in the Adirondacks. Their home is historic, with beautiful period touches like a partially enclosed wrap-around porch, wood beams, and family photos and hunting trophies. The location is ideal; Saranac Village is an easy 5-minute walk away and is quieter and more peaceful than Lake Placid, which is still only a short car ride away. Moreover, the house is perched atop a hill above the road, which affords it more privacy and great views, and the Fogartys have their own dock directly across the road by the lake. By far the greatest strength of the B&B is Jack and Emily themselves -- they treat you as if you were members of their own family. They are a wonderful source of recommendations for hiking, biking, canoeing, and other activities in the area, and they go out of their way to make you feel at home.

As a note to travelers, the B&B has a very communal feel, with guests sharing the table at breakfast and running into each other around the house during their stay. Guests should be prepared to socialize with the Fogartys and the other guests; there is less of a sense of privacy in the house than at some other B&Bs. Overall, we would highly recommend Fogarty's B&B!

The Fogarty B&B in Saranac Lake village was an excellent outpost for our outdoor adventures in the Adirondacks. The B&B is a large wood-paneled historic house on the side of a hill overlooking Lake Flower. Your adventure begins with the climb up the steps or driveway to reach the house. There is a large living room with fireplace and a dining room adjoining an outdoor porch with a view of the lake and mountain behind the village of Saranac Lake.. Hummingbirds visit a feeder. There is a full breakfast, with the opportunity to ask the owners, who have always lived in the Adirondacks, about where to go and what to do, especially outdoor activities, such as hiking and canoeing. West and south from this town is an interconnected series of lakes. Canoeing can start right there at lakeside, or else inquire about an outfitter. Saranac Lake is one of those quiet towns which time forgot-- it it the opposite of its flashier sister Lake Placid. However Lake Placid, with its numerous restaurants and Olympic sites is only 10 miles away. Five rooms share three baths. Prices are quite reasonable. The strength of the B&B is in its innkeepers, who are warm, friendly and down to earth. This is their home, but they are happy to welcome your visit.
