A comfortable full second floor efficiency, with private entrance from hosts, for one or two people on an Adirondack get-away or business trip. Stroll down the street to enjoy the charm of Saranac Lake's downtown village for dining or shopping.

The main room has a comfortable queen sized bed (linens and blankets provided), night stands, loveseat, side table, dresser, Morris chair, secretary's desk and luggage rack.

The Nook includes a full bath with a slipper tub and handheld spray shower. Guests may use the full bath with a regular shower directly down the stairs to the left (shared if guests are staying in The Studio on weekends or with classes attendees during the week - the class schedule is very light, check our Inner Quest Yoga website). Bath essentials are provided such as soap, shampoo, body lotion and hair dryer. During the warmer months guests may enjoy the front deck, bistro table and chairs.

We provide provide a book with suggestions and brochures in The Nook as well.

Guests best suited for The Nook will appreciate the quiet nature of the facility, that there is a shoes off policy, no smoking is permitted in or on the premises, and although we love pets we are unable to accommodate them.

We must ask that you do not bring / use personal cooking appliances such as electric skillets, grills, burners, etc. or a coffee press. A micro-wave, Keurig coffee maker, toaster, and mini-frig are provided.

There is a small claw foot slipper tub that is for ONE person only. Care must be taken when using it. The fiberglass tub's capacity is for a person up to 170 lbs. The hot water facet turns off in the opposite direction than is normal, and the slanted ceiling above it can be tricky when getting out. A stand up shower is available in the bathroom directly down the stairs and to the left.

Check-in is 4 PM (most times earlier - text us), and check-out is 11 AM.

Cozy and comfortable! Located in a great spot just a short walk away from downtown Saranac Lake. Only a 15 minute drive to Lake Placid. Lots of hiking and good food nearby. Overall, a perfect spot to hang out for the weekend!

Response from Mary & Kevin:
Hello Shahid, I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and the convenience of our place to walk down town. It's nice to be in our quieter town of Saranac Lake and pop over easily to visit our busier neighboring Olympic Village, Lake Placid. Take care and enjoy the rest of the summer.

Mary & Kevin provided all the comforts of home during my stay, which were especially welcome after spending long, arduous days hiking in the Adirondacks. The Nook was super cozy and spotless, the microwave & fridge really came in handy, and I was happy to have access to a downstairs shower. Mary's gentle yoga class the next morning was an added bonus! I certainly hope to be able to stay here again the next time I'm in the Saranac Lake area.

A lovely, homey, comfortable place to stay. We loved it. Great central location to check out the Adirondacks. Mary could not have been more helpful. The Nook was extremely peaceful.
Mary & Kevin User ProfileMary & Kevin is a superhost.
Response from Mary & Kevin:
Laura thanks so much for the review. So glad you enjoyed your stay. Considering the long drive, do come again for a longer time as you mentioned; the Adirondacks can keep you engaged for sure much longer with lovely sights and things to do. Best!!

Kevin and Mary were wonderful hosts! They made the check in process easy and smooth and they were very available to offer recommendations on local attractions. We participated in a stretching class and it was a fantastic bonus. "The Nook" was super neat and clean and had the comforts of mini apartment living with a nice layout for two people. The tub felt great after a day of hiking and the bed was very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

We love living in the Adirondack Mountains! We are active year-round in the out doors and especially like to hike, road bike, paddle, x-c ski, and snow shoe. We are foodies so enjoy our weekend date nights going out to dinner, even after being married 29 years. We share things to do and places to go with our guests if asked otherwise we allow our guests their privacy. Book The Nook, we are happy hosts.
