species of trout, bass and pike. The Saranac Lake region offers visitors a rich
variety of historic, artistic and cultural attractions.
Saranac Lake is also famous for its magnificent
'Great Camps' dating back to the golden era of the early 1900's.
These sprawling compounds epitomize
what is known today as the rustic 'Adirondack style' representing a unique chapter
in Americian architectural history. These rustic camps served as huge retreats
for wealthy families like the Rockefellers and Vanderbilts for half a century.
Today, visitors can actually tour some of these 'Great Camps' and experience their
spectacular beauty first hand.

Lake Winter Carnival
Saranac Lake Winter Carnival is the oldest winter festival in the eastern United
Winter Carnival's colorful history can be traced all the way back to the late
when Saranac Lake was a world-famous health resort. In 1897,
the first year of the winter carnival,
Saranac Lake was already an established community and center of commerce in the
Adirondack Tri-lakes region. Its
clean mountain air and high altitude provided rejuvenation
for hundreds of
tuberculosis sufferers drawn from all over the United States and Canada. To ease
the long, cold Adirondack
winters and to promote outdoor activities and sports, the
first "Mid-Winter Carnival" was created by the Pontiac
Club in 1896. This was a two day event filled with skiing, skating, parties and
a celebratory parade down Main Street.

interesting pieces using natural materials such as twigs and logs that would blend
into a decor and not stand out . Rustic furniture makers today follow the age
old tradition of using natural materials to create spectacular furniture and rustic
decor pieces. Rustic furniture usually has no set line or angles. Each piece is
individually crafted .
