Basic accommodations. Right on water and right on main road. Room includes free use of canoes, paddle board, etc. No breakfast or other food on site but it's close to everything. Parking lot is small and ran out of spaces at night.

Our rather expensive room was quite nice and had a nice balcony overlooking the lake. We stayed for three nights and each night were plagued by an intermittent noise that sounded like a plumbing issue. The next day I spoke to House keeping and asked them if they had any idea what the issue might be all i received was...

We drove up to Saranac Lake to go on the Rail Explorers rail ride. (railexplorers.net) . Excellent time. Made reservations way in advance at the Gauthiers. If you are looking for a 5 star hotel this is not the place. The view over looking the lake is beautiful. The sunrise and the sunset are just beautiful off the lake waters....

Very nice location on Oseetah Lake with beautiful views from the balcony of lake side rooms. Room & bathroom were dated, but clean. The sheets to one of the beds was dirty & worn when we got there, but they replaced them right away & gave us a complentary bottle of wine for the inconvenience. Free kayaks & canoes available...

My sister and I traveled here for nostalgic reasons. We had spent many summers in Saranac Lake as children. I had signed up for a training in Lake Placid and decided to add some days for a mini vacation. We were not disappointed. We had a lakeside room with 2 queen beds. It was a nice size room with a...

Don't even think of staying here. We paid $250/night for a small room that had old Goodwill furniture, dirty STAINED carpet and drapes that wouldn't close. The bathroom was so tiny you could barely turn around in it -- and I'm a small person. The so-called wonderful view was mostly of boats in a high metal docking area that obscured...

Must visit for water enthusiasts : is there anything better than 6:00 am cayaking on the lake next door...? Yes. 6:00 am cayaking on the lake next door free of charge :-) Cayaks, canoes, paddle boards - it's all there waiting for you

My husband I chose this hotel for our short honeymoon. I personally really like this hotel. It's small and cute and offers many things you don't see at most hotels. We had kayaks and paddle boats, canoes, tennis racquets and bicycles all free for your use during your stay. There were many chairs to sit around Lake Flower and just...

This was a quick booking for an overnight visit. The hotel is cute and has a great view- many of the rooms have lake views but even ours (which didn't) only requires turning ninety degrees. We didn't rent any of the available equipment - bikes, canoes, etc. but they were right there and accessible and the clerk at the desk...
