In Iconic Adirondack Great Lodge Style
Where your lodging is our 25 acres of nature trails, one of the world’s most incredible mountain-lake beach sunsets, an 1886 main lodge which was an 1800’s trading post, post office and stagecoach inn with a 1920s Speakeasy, and one of the last original Great Camp dining restaurants. A destination lodging experience awaits you.
There are no replica rooms and no confined spaces here. Nature is our main street, and space is your lodging neighbor, spread out over 25 acres of water and woods.
Each accommodation has a story to tell, honored by the legacy of family craftsmanship and stewardship. We are 1 of only 7 Audubon 5 Green leaf hotels in North America. In this eco-conscious fashion, much of what warms your eye has been milled from the estate, and each has been touched by the discerning eye of several generations of family.
Over time we have culled a unique artisan style: luxurious without pretension, imaginative within natural subtly and personalized character that carries on our National Geographic Traveler award for “Keeping a sense of place.”
The Lake Clear Lodge & Retreat is 15 minutes outside of Saranac Lake in the woods and on the water; if you have questions about accessibility, please contact us.
