Travel Tips for Saranac Lake

Go to the heart of the...

by NBouvier

Go to the heart of the village(Berkley Square) and just park and walk.Lots of great shops to browse. Stop at Little Italy for some great food!!! If you feel like a short drive then the Howard Johnson's in Lake Placid is the best deal for the money. Great food and even better atmosphere and service!! My best memory of Saranac is just the beauty of the place. All the little quintessential elements that make up this sweet town are what bring a smile to my face every time I thnik of it. I think that just wandering around the town is the best!!

The Saranac Inn

by ExGuyParis

At the beginning of the 20th Century, Saranac Lake was the site of over 170 private sanatoria and nursing homes, for the care of people with Tuberculosis. It also was the site of several luxury resorts. Pictured here is The Saranac Inn, on a postcard from the early 1930s. In the early 1970s, the hotel still stood, abandoned. I used to take a boat across the lake and explore the empty hotel. It was a very eerie feeling... especially after I read The Shining and saw the film!

The hotel is totally gone now, but its golf course is still in use.

John Brown's Body

by ExGuyParis

John Brown's body lies a-mold'ring in the grave—for real! The actual grave of John Brown can be found on Route 73 in Lake Placid at the John Brown Farm State Historic Site. The grave is located on the farm where the noted abolitionist was working before his Harper’s Ferry raid in 1859. From May to October you can visit the house that was his home (10 AM to 5 PM). The museum presents the history of John Brown and his crusade against slavery.


(Sung to the tune of “The Battle Hymn of the Republic,” sort of)

John Brown's body lies a-mold'ring in the grave

John Brown's body lies a-mold'ring in the grave
His soul goes marching on

Glory, Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory, Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory, Glory! Hallelujah!
His soul is marching on

He captured Harper's Ferry with his nineteen men so true
He frightened old Virginia till she trembled
through and through
They hung him for a traitor, themselves the traitor crew
His soul is marching on

John Brown died that the slave might be free,
John Brown died that the slave might be free,
John Brown died that the slave might be free,
But his soul is marching on!

The stars above in Heaven are looking kindly down
The stars above in Heaven are looking kindly down
The stars above in Heaven are looking kindly down
On the grave of old John Brown

On route 3 in the Adirondack Mountains, Upstate New York,
25 miles east of Tupper Lake, 10 miles west of Lake Placid (of Winter Olympics fame), just west of route 86.

The route 3 area has many great boating, fishing, hiking, viewing lakes:
Union Falls, Tupper, Saranac, Placid, Loon, Silver, Rainbow.
Each of these have parks and pull-offs where you can stop to have a picnic or sit on a bench and watch the water fowl. The water is clear and the air is clean.
