About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

A bright, cheerful, open space - the Inner Quest Yoga & Wellness Center studio, available Fri, Sat, and Sun nights, plus both weeks at the year-end holidays. For 1 or 2 guests visiting the Adirondack high peaks region who desire an affordable very nice clean place to rest. Guests best suited for this rental will appreciate the quiet nature of the facility. Conveniently located an easy stroll to the downtown shops and restaurants.

The space

It's a beautiful yoga studio you would sleep in - folks have shared how they love the open space and calming colors. Enjoy a comfortable queen sized bed. Sit, read, relax, in stressless chairs. Get on the floor and exercise; use any props you wish.

Guests best suited for the yoga studio will respect the sacred space it is and the quiet nature of the facility. No open beverage containers in the studio, please.

Guest access

There is a full bathroom with a shared shower (guests staying in the nook upstairs sometimes choose to take a stand up shower as their full bath has a slipper soaking tub and hand held type spray shower). Guests may use studio mats and props to exercise or do yoga.

Interaction with guests

As hosts we understand if guests want full privacy. We are available for any recommendations guests would like ... Knock on our door, text, email, or call our cell phones. We are happy to help make your stay in the area easy.

The neighborhood

The studio is conveniently located a short walk from saranac lakes’ downtown shops, restaurants and artist galleries. The building behind the nook is bluseed studios, featuring art exhibitions, workshops, and live music performances. Across the street kitty corner is a small park with a tennis court and basketball court. Guests have found the convenience of stores located across the street: family dollar, aubuchon's hardware, kinney drugs and a wine and spirits shop. Less than a mile away is the towns’ municipal beach, park and picnic area at lake colby, a lovely spot to watch the sunset, and a boat launch on lower saranac lake, which gives access to the spectacular saranac chain of lakes. Behind the building are railroad tracks where you can walk, cross country ski or snow mobile for miles!

The town of saranac lake serves as a great vacation spot for outdoor enthusiasts, no matter the time of year! Nearby find great road or mountain biking, canoeing, hiking, fishing, snow shoeing and x-c skiing. Downhill skiers may explore titus, big tupper and whiteface mountains each approximately 30 minutes away.

Saranac lakes’ history continues as a health and wellness getaway location. Come see why saranac lake is one of the northeast's pioneering health resorts and why a get away here in the great north woods is good for the soul.

Like other guests you may want to explore the world renowned neighboring Olympic village of lake placid just 10 miles away. There of course the intrigue of the Olympic venue sites attracts many visitors year-round. Check out the lake placid visitors bureau website for festivities and 'things to do' there.

Other things to note

If you would like a spa like package, appointments may be made for private yoga, yoga therapy, Reiki or sound healing sessions or massage. Check the inner quest yoga & wellness center website for details.

Breath, relax, feel and be. We enjoy hosting guests from all over the world, Mary & Kevin

About Mary Bartel

I am a yogini ... a passionate full-time yoga therapist and meditation instructor with a full week day schedule and from time to time teach workshops on weekends (those dates would be blocked out of our schedule). My husband and I moved to Saranac Lake in 1988 as we are outdoor enthusiasts and we wanted to set up lifestyle businesses. We play in the outdoors all seasons: x-c skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, biking, walking, and swimming we'll share our favorite places with you if asked. We also are foodies so will can make dining recommendations if you like as well.

Mary Bartel purchased this house in 2005

Why Mary Bartel chose Saranac Lake

I fell in love with the Adirondacks in my early teens when on a summer vacation with my friend's family. The mountains had a lasting impression that I moved to Saranac Lake to attend college and afterwards worked for the 1980 Olympics. After moving away for eight years I returned to Saranac Lake in 1988 with my husband. We enjoy a lifestyle which allows for much outdoor playtime. We purchased this property for it's convenient business location for my Yoga Studio in 2004 and in 2013 we built an apt. in the lower level and moved into it. We converted the 2nd floor into an efficiency vacation rental we call The Nook at Inner Quest. A couple of months later we began to offer The Studio too as an affordable option for weekend travelers.

Clean, quiet and very comfortable.

A wonderful experience! The owners were very kind, the studio is beautiful and the pictures do not do it justice. A clean and comfortable bathroom and I will definitely come back.

Beautiful space

Warm and welcoming place to stay, not a bad walk from downtown. We would definitely consider staying here again. Mary and her husband were very nice and the accommodations were in good condition and clean. A secret gem for anyone looking for a place to stay.

The property was extremely clean, neat and taken care of. No complaints.

  • 5 of 5

Just have to say this was the best trip I've personally taken. the people who own the property were warm and thoughtful, very friendly and made sure everything was in order when we got there. They made sure to be available to us whenever we needed help, but also made sure we had our privacy. They also included a binder filled with their own personal notes and experiences with the places around the property, so we were able to hone in on the best places to eat, have fun at, and just experience while we were there. We definitely plan on coming back in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you Gary. We aim to provide guests ease and comfort. From experience, we know how much time can be lost just trying to figure out what to do and where to go. Do come again, there is so many beautiful places to explore any season; Enjoy nature on foot, bicycle, paddling x-c skiing and snowshoeing (which are our favorite things).
