Fifty Beds, Two Lakes, And An Otter: Bartlett’s Hotel In Its Heyday, 1854-1884
The late nineteenth century might be called the Golden Age of Adirondack Hotels. Among the humble and the grand, one establishment stands out above all the others for its character and for its characters: Virgil and Caroline Bartlett’s Sportsmen’s Home, which had its heyday from 1854 to 1884. “Bartlett’s,” as the place was often called, stood at the downstream end of the Bartlett Carry between the Upper and Middle Saranac Lakes. Fran Yardley, a professional storyteller and author, has lived near the remote site of the hotel for more than forty years. She’s our guide as Curiously Adirondack takes a look at a place renowned for its warm welcomes, delicious meals, cozy rooms, and pet otter.
