My wife and I wanted to find a place to stay in the Speculator area on the weekend of our anniversary, as a stop on our way to Saranac Lake where we were spending two nights. We were planning this last-minute, only a few days ahead of the weekend, and were surprised to find such a highly rated B&B available for a reasonable price on such short notice.
The grounds are magnificent -- 50 acres with lots of lake frontage, including a beach. The house is modern and spacious -- except for our bedroom (the double bed bedroom on the 2nd floor) which was quite small. But we didn't really have a problem with that. There was a shared bathroom; being shared didn't turn out to be any problem. The bathroom was huge but actually not designed in a real user friendly way. No counter next to the sink to put things, as an example. A smaller but better laid out bathroom would have been preferable.
The breakfast was outstanding -- we figured we would have had to pay $20 a person at a restaurant for a breakfast of that quality and quantity. Since the price of the room was only $100, that meant that essentially we were paying $60 for the room, not including the breakfast. Try finding a motel for that price! One slight caution (as another reviewer commented on) -- Diane likes to have grace before eating breakfast. We had absolutely no problem with that, but some people might. She asks the guests who wants to say grace -- there was a very brief awkward silence before someone volunteered (and said a very nice, and totally non-offensive and non-denominational, prayer).
