AKA the Saranac Chain of Lakes

Exploration and Adventure Await

Buying your very own waterfront home on Lake Placid comes with a perpetual ticket to deep waters, wide-open vistas, incomparable tranquility, and your own personal paradise.

Placid is as storied as it is impressive with its sprawling Great Camps, tucked-away cabins in the woods dotting its scenic shoreline, and some of the best waterfront real estate in the Adirondacks. It is a popular lake for watersports and family gatherings and yet, at 4 miles long, it also provides quiet bays to escape to, a variety of bird species to listen to, and bountiful untouched nature to explore.
