As we walk the path to a new season and the vivid colors of fall wave their goodbyes, the great season of autumn in the Adirondack Park is a great reminder of why we moved back to the homeland. Comprising over 6 million acres of land, and untouched by it’s “forever wild” stamp, there really is no place like home. And if there is anything this pandemic has taught us, it’s that being close to family and friends is what makes a house a home. Whether you are prepping up a warm apple pie or savoring a crisp morning around your fireplace, living in the Adirondacks is a one-of-a-kind-experience.
Reason #1: Fresh Air
The High Peaks region of the Adirondack Mountains has long been known as a place for healing and therapy; most notably in the late-1800s and into the 20th century when Saranac Lake became the epicenter of tuberculosis treatment. Even now as we live through this pandemic we’re finding a medicinal solace in all the fresh air!TAKE A DEEP BREATH AND WE WILL HELP YOU FIND YOUR NEXT HOME!
Reason #2: Lifestyle
Forbes called Lake Placid in the Adirondacks a must-visit locale come summer, and the flood gates of curious visitors from New England, New Jersey, and New York City have been arriving in a steady stream since. Still, there’s still time to make it your own—get a piece of land, your cute little bungalow, and get back to your roots while you still can!SO MANY GREAT DIFFERENT TOWNS TO CHOOSE FROM IN OUR AREA
Reason #3: It Takes a Village (and a Good School)
Lake Placid, Saranac Lake, and Keene all have great places to grow up and learn, so as you and your family grow, be sure to consider what a gift it is to be raised in a small town where everybody really does know your name! Living in a small town offers the connection, the freedoms, and security you won’t find in a big city. And here, teacher connections are like no other—you will find small classes, highly trained staff, and educators, and passionate folks who will help your children transform into incredible adults (who ideally will continue to call the Adirondacks home).MORE IN DEPTH INFO ON EDUCATION IN THE LAKE PLACID REGION
Reason #4: Easy Transport To and From
Given that Plattsburgh, Burlington, Albany, Westport, and even Saranac Lake all have planes and train stations, the remote-living life can be expanded to city and international travel within hours. Not to mention, Montreal is only about 2 hours away from the ‘dacks, so bring on the French Rosetta Stone and have fun!SOME MORE GREAT INFO ON LAKE PLACID TRAVEL
Reason #5: Walk, Hike, Bike & Ski All Year Long!

With skiing (cross-country and alpine), ski jumping, luging, bobsledding, hiking (those 46 peaks), biking, rock climbing, and swimming holes galore, you and yours get the sign-on bonus of having four seasons in which to play!CHECK OUT LAKEPLACID.COM FOR MORE ADIRONDACK RECREATION
