HEI adds Saranac Waterfront Lodge to portfolio

HEI Hotels & Resorts has added the 93-room Saranac Waterfront Lodge in Saranac Lake, NY, bringing its portfolio of third-party managed hotels to 101.

“A beloved local destination, the Saranac Waterfront Lodge has a wonderful reputation we look forward to expanding upon with both locals and visitors,” said Rachel Moniz, principal/COO, HEI. “With an incredible location in the heart of the Adirondacks, one surrounded by natural beauty and wonders, the lodge truly is the ‘base camp for area adventures.’ Our goal is to ensure that the Saranac Waterfront Lodge becomes the place to be, whether it’s enjoying a special meal overlooking Lake Flower, hosting a business event in our LEED-certified conference center or simply warming up with hot cocoa in-between visits to the famed Winter Carnival Ice Palace each February. We want to make The Lodge a true destination for all.”

Located in the Tri-Lakes region between Lake Placid and Tupper Lake, the property is situated on the shores of Lake Flower’s Pontiac Bay. The Lodge features a 24-boat slip marina with public restaurant docking, indoor heated pool and hot tub area, outdoor fire-pit and fitness center. The resort hosts a locals’ night on Tuesdays and Thursdays featuring live music and has begun working with local food and beverage producers to create a more regionalized farm-to-table experience in the Boathouse restaurant.

“The Saranac Waterfront Lodge is one of the best-kept secrets in Adirondacks,” Moniz added. “As we work toward increasing occupancy, improving guest satisfaction scores and upgrading our fine dining experience, we will also create more career opportunities, a recipe we are confident will further benefit the local economy.”
