The acommodations were spotless and very comfortable, also very pleasing to the eye. We found great places to eat and enjoyed a festival in town.It is a hop,skip and jump to Lake Placid,so we walked around there. The owners are soooo nice and willing to do anything they can to make your stay memorable.

I would like to first say THANK YOU to the entire staff at the Saranac Lake Inn on Lake Flower. We had stayed for 6 nights and wish we could of stayed more. The excellent staff made us feel like family. We felt right at home! We used everything the motel had to offered during our trip, The pool, free wifi, canoes, kayaks, paddel boats, basketball hoop, free games for the kids at the registration desk, sidewalk chalk was allowed for the kids to have some fun, they even ofered to start a fire so we could make smores for the kids, I was even able to pick there brain about the hot fishing spots on Lake Flower and did very well fishing. My Family and I have never been to this part of the state before and now they have us for life, this will be the only place we stay every year.
Thanks for the memories....

We planned to finish seeing the Adirondacks on this visit. I really wanted to stay some place that would offer a fridge and microwave since we planned at least 6-7 days. Gauthiers offered this PLUS. I can't say enough about the welcoming feeling and service that they offered. Dan Brownell and his associate Brad made us feel like we were hanging out with friends.....That's the PLUS that you really can't get elsewhere......
THANK YOU!!!!!

Gauthier’s is a friendly, affordable, family-run place. It is essentially a motel, with the added extra of free unlimited access to their quality boats (kayaks, canoes, and paddleboats) for use on the lake right behind the motel.

Our room at Gauthier’s was clean and basic. I found the beds to be OK, although my wife found them uncomfortable. Amenities were skimpy, but staff was happy to provide things when asked. Maid service was a little weak (didn’t replace soap or empty garbage).

Rooms are listed as “poolside” or “lakeside.” Our room was “poolside,” and although it was near the pool, it was even nearer to the parking lot, and so there wasn’t much privacy. (This is not unlike many of the motels in this area.) Considering the setup, though, it was relatively quiet. It does seem that the “lakeside” rooms are much better in this respect, but they are more expensive.

The free, easy access to Lake Flower is a big perk. You can just sit and relax by the Lake or use one of their boats.

Overall, this is a good choice if you need a simple, well-located base for your time in the Lake Placid / Saranac Lake area.

This is a convenient, very typical motel/motor lodge in a great location. We were able to check in early, which is always nice, and had pizza delivered after a long day on the road. The owners seem as nice as the other reviewers have said, but there was too much "socializing" going on among the guests for my taste. The place is busy, with kids and animals about.
