|About these ratings|
Only a 15-minute drive west of the bustling tourist town of Lake Placid, Saranac Lake is the perfect escape from the high prices that accompany the Olympic Complex hubbub. Filled with its own shops, hotels and local diners, Saranac Lake is considered one of the most idyllic villages in upstate New York by the likes of Frommer's. The town is also home to the more manageable ski slopes for beginners on Mount Pisgah, plus the Adirondack Airport (SLK).
