|This historic cure cottage built in 1910,
overlooks Lake Flower and faces Mts. Pisgah, Baker and MacKenzie. It is within
walking distance of downtown Saranac Lake, ten miles from Lake Placid and twenty
miles from Whiteface Mountain ski area.
The Fogarty's B&B is very comfortable. The warmth from the fireplace in the living room after a day of hiking, canoeing, or skiing is most relaxing. A good book, a few friends, and conversation; or, perhaps a game of pool in the billiard room on the second floor with a beer makes the evening special. Upstairs there are five bedrooms two with queen sized beds, two with two double beds and one with twins. The three bath rooms are shared and each has a big bath tub for relaxing after a great day of outdoor activities. Nearby restaurants are very good and reasonably priced. Lake Placid (15 minutes by car) offers a great variety of culinary delights as well as shopping and evening entertainment. Breakfast is served between seven and nine in the morning by Jack and consists of bacon and eggs, French toast (most excellent), and assorted goodies along with cereal and other breakfast things.
The View from the Fogarty's B&B provides an awesome panorama of Lake Flower and the nearby mountains. Lake Flower is connected to several other lakes via streams and canals with locks. A favorite summer activity is to rent canoes from the local outfitter who will drive you and your gear to the Middle Saranacs or Upper Saranac lakes. The easy paddle across the lakes, through the adjoining streams, past small islands, canals with locks, beautiful picnic spots and swimming areas, surrounded by mountains and beautiful scenery makes the experience memorable. The end of the paddle leaves you in front of the B&B where you have only to climb the stairs to draw a warm bath and relax before dinner. The outfitter will pick up the canoes and you have no worries. Favorite winter sports include cross country skiing, down hill skiing, and the Olympic bob sled run.

Things to Do
There are many things to do all year at Lake Placid and Saranac Lake. The groomed Olympic cross country ski trails, the great variety of backcountry skiing, and wilderness canoeing are a strong attraction to the area. Best of all, the warmth and comfort of the Fogarty's B&B make this area one worth revisiting.
Did I tell you that the town gets together every February to make an ice palace out of the frozen Lake Flower? Each year it is slightly different but always has an entrance with windy twisty passageways.
