|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.
Recent travelers characterize the area as lesser-known gem of the Adirondacks. One TripAdvisor user describes, "A beautiful little town […] There are unique shops and a great laid back attitude of the mountains. Of course the lake looks like it is out of a painting." The town is also home to the more manageable ski slopes for beginners on Mount Pisgah, plus the Adirondack Airport (SLK).
