Oseetah Park is a small community of private homes, this one offering the best views and lake frontage that there is to offer.

Oseetah Lake (orginally Miller Pond) is a 250-acre lake two-and-a-half miles south of the village of Saranac Lake on the Saranac River.Oseetah Lake was enlarged when the dam across the Saranac River at Saranac Lake that forms Lake Flower was raised to generate electric power by the Saranac Lake Electric Company in 1904. The Saranac River departs the lower locks below Lower Saranac Lake and flows northeast into Oseetah Lake. The river exits Oseetah at the north end of the lake and flows northeast to Lake Flower. Oseetah is also fed by Kiwassa Lake. Islands in Oseetah Lake include Turtle, Wyota, Wapiti, Watch, Haven of Rest, Papoose, Birch, Justamere, and Honeymoon or Newman's Island. Oseetah's shoreline and islands are mostly privately held.
According to a legend of doubtful authenticity, Oseetah was an Indian Princess who, upon throwing herself off a cliff into a lake on learning the Indian chief she loved was betrothed to another, was magically transformed into a water lily. In the Huron language Oseetah means "Water Lily". 1 (courtesy of historc Saranac Lake, local wiki)
