About the property

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.

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

Cozy, updated, clean

  • 5 of 5

Me and my wife spent our honeymoon here (for a week)

we wanted something small, cozy, close to everything in the area. it was perfect for us.


can sit on your own waterfront

REAL full kitchen, everything you need to cook (grill, dishwasher, all utensils/pans/pots etc.)

Netflix enabled TV/wifi in the cabin

kayaks/canoe available

comfy bed

CLEAN - and newer appliances, kitchen, bathroom etc.

Space (for 2 people) more than enough for us.

Driving distance to Lots of restaurants (10+ within 5-10mins) another 20+ within 30mins.

Driving distance to see lake placid, mountains, parks, theater, farmers markets, etc.

walking distance to ice cream! :)

Cons (not big deals for us, but could be for some):

You are right off the main road, backing out of driveway or the noise could bother people

Road is between you and the waterfront, again not an issue for us.

There is other houses/driveways nearby - probably don't want curtains opened for privacy.

Thanks so much!

Mark went above and beyond!

  • 5 of 5

Walking into this cottage was like walking into a 5 star hotel! It was immaculate to say the least! We definitely will be back. The location on Flower Lake was perfect, only an 8-10 minute drive to Lake Placid. Thanks again Mark, see You soon.

Excellent Experience; Very Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Cabin for four nights over the New Years Holidays for some Alpine Skiing at Whiteface Mountain resort. The property is in outstanding mint condition, clean and superbly equipped with everything that one can need for a comfortable stay. The kitchen is freshly-renovated and the cabin, overall, very cozy and comfortably-furnished. Mark is a very responsive and hospitable owner. Would definitely stay again and recommend to anyone that asked.

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.
