5/5 Excellent

Great Experience!
Our family had a great time. The cabin was great with a beautiful yard over looking the lake. It was really nice not to have to bring your own linens and towels. No need to grocery shop prior to travel, the town grocery store TOPS was clean and has everything you need as well as very friendly service. The owner Huda was very responsive and friendly! Thank you Huda! We had a really nice week and look forward to visiting again!

5/5 Excellent

Perfect lake stay!
This cabin was everything we hoped for on our Saranac Lake trip. The cabin is clean and comfortable and has everything you need. The grounds are right on the lake with a dock, boat rack with canoes and kayaks, nice fire pit and chairs, and there's a little city beach right next door to walk to. 5 mins from town and all the amenities. We'll be back!

Bear Cabin
Enjoyed a relaxing long weekend at Bear Cabin- so much so that we stayed an extra night. The kitchen was well sized and well stocked that we were able to cook our meals and enjoy them together at the dining table over looking the lake. The hosts were super responsive and quickly addressed any issues that arose. We will definitely return as a couple and are entertaining the idea of returning with extended family as there are a total of 4 cabins on property and could see us all enjoying time together during the day yet having our own space to relax and regroup.
