Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cabin in Saranac Lake - Lake Flower Log Cabin

1 Bedroom Cottage, Comfortably Accommodates 4 Persons.

Greetings! Please read though the following description closely. It describes the property very well.

With my cabin, you'll enjoy the uniqueness of a vacation getaway near the heart of the village of Saranac Lake, but only minutes by boat from the Adirondack wild. This is the perfect location that has an appeal for everyone. Shops and venues are close by, and the lake and all if it's wonders are at your doorstep.

Property was thoroughly renovated in 2013, equipped with a completely new kitchen and all new furnishings, all professionally maintained. The Lake Flower Log Cabin boasts a large open living and dining room with a queen size sofa bed, one bedroom with a queen size bed. The cabin is meticulously appointed in an Adirondack style, with comfortable furnishings and appealing forest and lake themed decorations. A garden patio is just outside the rear doorway with a BBQ grill, chimera and patio table and chairs. Across the street, there is a waterfront area is available for your use with dock space provided for a boat, if you should bring or rent one for your stay (there is however a canoe provided for your use). The Lake Flower Log Cabin is a waterfront property, located on Route 86 (Lake Flower Avenue), a busy primary residential street which lies between the cabin and the waterfront. Please note that I look to maintain the premises as a smoke free environment, inside and out. Check in is at 4 PM and check out is at 11 AM.

Sincerely, Mark

About Mark Ellis

I have lived in the Adirondacks most of my life and in 1993, I bought my home in Saranac Lake. I had two wonderful elderly neighbors that lived in this cabin next door to me. It wasn't very long before we developed a wonderful friendship that lasted for many years until their recent passing. I was very happy to have the opportunity to acquire the cabin and continue the care and love of this home, cherished by my neighbors. The cabin needed a lot of updating, but a lot of the original is preserved. It has been a wonderful project and am thrilled to share it with those coming to the area.

Mark Ellis purchased this cabin in 2013

A great stay in this comfortable, clean, tasteful cabin

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Lake Flower property. The cabin is wonderfully appointed, very clean, and many amenities were provided. The owner is great and very responsive and we enjoyed meeting him. It really served our needs as a very comfortable home base for exploring the area in our canoe. We wish the road out front was not so busy, but since we were not around much during the day and it did not disrupt our sleep, it was not really a problem.

Nice Property Across from Lake

  • 5 of 5

This Saranac Lake property on Lake Flower was an excellent choice for a place to stay in the area. The house had relatively new furniture and appliances. Floors and carpets were clean and the small bathroom was adequate. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking as needed. There were flat screen TVs in both the living room and bedroom with basic cable. The bed was extremely comfortable. Being there in the fall meant that we experienced a wide variation in outdoor temperature but the house had good temperature control. The WIF was very fast. The location was convenient to the quaint Saranac Lake town site which is much quieter than nearby Lake Placid. There are also quite a few restaurants and grocery stores within walking distance or a short drive. Mark was very responsive in his communication with us. This house would definitely be a choice if in the area again.

Mark was quick to respond and easy to work with. His cabin was perfect for my husband and I. We enjoyed fishing accross the street and had plenty of room to have company over for dinner.The bed was very comfortable. I would recommend a stay at his cabin to anyone that asked.

Great little cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful little cabin with a great location within walking distance to the town of Saranac with a beautiful view of the lake right out the front window. Mark's description of the property couldn't have been more accurate. We couldn't have asked for more. Mark made sure the cabin was extremely well equipped and very clean. The modern appliances made for a very comfortable stay. The bed was comfortable and had a TV in both the bedroom and living room. Netflix was a nice extra on the living room TV. The washer & dryer came in very handy as did the gas grill. We will absolutely rent from Mark again the next time we come to the Saranac area.

Beautiful & Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable 3 night stay! Mark keeps the place spotless and has everything you could think of. Would highly recommend to friends and family. Very short 10 min drive to Lake Placid and 2 minute drive to Lake Saranac. We really enjoyed the rail tour from Saranac to Lake Clear. The drive to the top of Whiteface Mountain was definitely worth the $23 and the bobsled experience was a blast. This was the perfect little vacation.

Upstate retreat

  • 4 of 5

Everything you need in one clean, comfortable, spacious cabin. The layout is great for a couple or a small family, the kitchen is perfect for cooking, everything is neat and tidy, and there are a couple of huge bonuses too like the the laundry room, the grill, the outdoor firepit stocked with wood, and of course the private dock across the street with kayaks and canoes. I was also very impressed by how well stocked the cabin was - every single detail was thought of so as to make you comfortable like you were in your own home. Mark was also very quick to respond when I had questions which I really appreciated. The only downside I felt was that the cabin wasn't very private - you are surrounded by homes on all sides and a busy road is to the front of you (probably not ideal for small children or dogs). Even so when you're inside it's peaceful ang quiet and you seem to forget anout the road. All in all, this is a great cabin to explore Saranac and the surrounding areas, especially if you are looking for some time on the water.

Owner's Response: I work VERY hard to provide a comfortable and enjoyable experience and have maintained a 5 star rating to this point. From the text of this review, I am assuming that this 4 star review is because of the residential location of the cabin and its proximity to the street. If the description of the cabin is thoroughly read at the start, I CLEARLY point out these factors. Even an aerial photograph is provided, showing the cabin's closeness to the street and neighbors. If the reason for 4 stars is due to this , I do not feel that it is justified. From the information I provide, I feel a prospective renter can undoubtably decide if the property is right for them. Contrary to the notation regarding children, I actually have families that return year after year. I do however very much appreciate the guests positive remarks. Sincerely, Mark Ellis
