Welcome to Saranac Lake, NY___________

     Our historian couldn't say it any better than a true Saranac Laker can.  So please visit their history logs at:   http://www.saranaclake.com/historytimeline.shtml.  A great read.  The heritage continues to this day with their annual Winter Carnival and Ice Palace.  Fr current events visit them at:  http://www.saranaclake.com.  Enjoy your stay!

Visit the Robert Louis Stevenson Cottage, where this famous author lived during the winter of 1887-88.  Saranac Lake, settled in 1819, was a logging and guide community.  In the late 1870's, Dr. Edward Livingston Trudeau established Saranac Lake as a health resort.  Thousands traveled to this region to "cure" in the mountain air.  Saranac Lake still has many 'cure' cottages.
