About Jackie Bay

We are a family of 4 and are avid outdoors people. My first experience in the Adirondacks was hiking the high peaks and cross country skiing. My husband came here for rock/ice climbing and back-country skiing.

When we had our kids, we introduced them to downhill skiing at Whiteface and moved on to canoe/camp adventures. It seems there is not a portage that we have not endured nor a black fly we haven't personally encountered! Through the years our kids have also developed a deep love of these beautiful places.

Sailing,kayaking and cross country skiing are new family passions. We intend to bring our catamaran up from NJ to explore the many miles of Upper Saranac - the truly best lake in the region. We are miserable fisherman as a whole, but intend to try anew off our boat dock. One can only hope that the fish of Saranac are less intelligent than the many others that have avoided us over the years.

Jackie Bay purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Jackie Bay chose Adirondacks

When we saw this cottage we knew that we had found a gem too good to pass up. We intend to partially retire here and have decided to share it with select guests until that happy day arrives.

This location is ideal for several reasons. The Saranac chain of lakes is the best place to be because you can enjoy 17 miles of paddling with only one portage (!).

Secondly, the hiking is outstanding. Located within 30 minutes of the cottage are trails to Haystack, Scarface, Baker, Panther and Ampersand mountains.

Third, there are a lot of options for both downhill and cross country skiing. Local downhill/tubing resorts include Big Tupper, Titus and Mt. Pisgah. World renowned Whiteface is 45 minutes away. Cross country trails from Saranac and Lake Clear include the Horse Trail complex to Rat, Bone and Fish pond and Moose Pond trails. Out of Tupper are the Cold River Horse Trail System. From the Paul Smiths area is the Hayes Brook Trail, St Regis and Fish Ponds ski, the Jack Rabbit Trail and groomed trails at the Paul Smiths Visitors Center. Lastly, groomed trails can be found at the Mt Van Hoevenberg and Cascade Ski Centers further afield in Lake Placid.

Lastly, the cottage is private but not isolated. A scenic 30 minute drive puts you into the center of Saranac Lake where you will find restaurants, bars, churches, galleries, grocery stores, a golf club and a theatre. A 15 minute drive in the opposite direction will put you in Tupper Lake where there is a movie theatre and regional museum The Wild Center, which is well worth a visit.

What makes this cottage unique

There has been a cottage on this spot for over 20 years. The structure you see today was built in 1995 and renovated and expanded in 2008. Lucky for us, it's location has been grandfathered in making it the only cottage that is situated directly on the lake. It is a piece of paradise.

We are still furnishing the home so check back to find updated photos. We will have new porch furniture, a swimming platform and a new gas grill installed before the first rental.

Peaceful serenity

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was as beautiful as was described. It was very clean & the wood burning stove made it very cozy. There was an amazing view of the lake out the front & a beautiful view of the woods (which were snowy) out of the back through windows from cathedral ceiling to floor. We didn't attempt to bring our Jeep down the steep driveway as it was covered with wet leaves when we came & proceeded to snow the next few days, but the walk was great exercise! Would love to come back again soon. Thank you, Jackie for sharing your cottage with us.

Like being "On Golden Pond"

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this amazing cottage on Upper Saranac Lake. It had been a bucket list trip for us for years. The cottage had everything we needed. Updated kitchen, cozy living room, comfortable bedrooms and a nice deck right on the lake. We spent our days sunning on the deck, swimming in the lake and paddling around in the provided kayaks and canoe. Our evenings were spent by the fire pit looking at the stars and listening to the sounds of the Loons. It was one of the most relaxing vacations I have ever had. Thank you Jackie and Pierre for sharing your little slice of heaven with us. Mary & Jim. Long Island NY.

A perfect cottage getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was clean, charming and had everything we wanted and needed. Two perfect bedrooms, a modern kitchen - small but perfect for a week's getaway. The screened in porch was perfect for morning coffee, and the outdoor firepit and grill were ideal. The best part was the dock to which we tied a rental power boat (swiss marine). Our best vacation in years.

Beautiful peaceful place

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this lovely home on Upper Saranac lake. It is beautifully furnished - hard to know best place to settle. Whether the comfortable living room, the screened porch or the outdoor Adirondack chairs looking out on the lake! Although we have our own, the owner provide kayaks and they are not the usual 80 lb. cheapo rental kayaks. The home is as advertised (including steep driveway, although we had no problems getting up and down). The lake is beautiful - lots to explore.

The villages of Tupper Lake and Saranac Lake are reasonably close so not a problem to either go out for dinner (although you might not want to leave the house!) or go get groceries, etc. We did not try the wood stove in the kitchen since it was warm when we were there, but I could see how that would be really cozy!

Delightful respite from life

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend exploring, fishing, kayaking, eating, drinking, and watching the sunrise. The home was immaculate, comfortable, and in a lovely private setting. The expansive windows and screened porch brought the outdoors in. Caught some big fish! Beds were comfy and linens worthy of a nice hotel. Nice gas grill made dinners easy and enjoyed eating on the screened in porch listening to the loons. Big fridge, so you can stock up and stay at the cottage without having to run out to restock. Relax and enjoy the view! No need to go anywhere! Thanks Jackie and Pierre!
