Where should I get ice cream from?

While Donnelly's Ice Cream (State Route 86) is the undisputed legend around here, we suggest Teddy's in Bloomingdale, Cone Cabin in Lake Clear, Stewart's Hard Ice Cream in Saranac Lake or The Pine Cone in Raybrook. It's hard to go wrong with any of these.


Do you have real moose in Saranac Lake?

Yes, but they are seldom seen. Some official estimates puts the moose population in the Adirondack Park at around 300. If you ever see one, keep a safe distance away and respect them.


Restaurant recommendations?

Of course! For home-cooked tasting food, you can't go wrong with the Shamrock in Gabriels. Have breakfast at the CAVU Cafe at the Regional Airport in Lake Clear. Lunch at Bitters and Bones will not disappoint. Fiddleheads is yummy. Dack Shack in Lake Placid is wonderful. Little Italy in Saranac Lake is a local favorite. Our favorite restaurant in Lake Placid is at the Interlaken Inn. For a great sandwich or quiche, checkout the Lakeview Deli across from Lake Flower. On Thursdays, Fusion Market offers up tasty Indian meals for takeout. In a rush? The Asian Buffet is consistently good and offers quite a few options.
