Prescott House

Originally built in 1905 as a Saranac Lake institutional "Cure Cottage" . It was designed as a Reception Center for persons with tuberculosis. Many people came and stayed at the Prescott House while they cured for TB by sitting out on the large open fresh air porches.

Built In later years, it served as a college boarding house. Recently it has been upgraded to offer three fully furnished luxury apartments. In addition it offer 22 fully furnished rental rooms all with shared baths.

The interior of this building has been totally remodeled as well as the exterior. All rooms, including the apartments have been beautifully furnished. The original maple stairwell is still in place, and the building looks like it was just constructed.

The Prescott House is a brick Colonial building in design. It is a commercially zoned property and is presently being used as a Bed and Breakfast. It would make a fabulous Hotel, Inn, Restaurant, Nursing Home, or even an exceptional Private Mansion.

The large porches feature fantastic mountain views. This house has a very large front lawn which could be used for guests to enjoy concerts of chamber music performed from the balcony over the main entrance.

One might be surprised at how private this property actually is, given its village setting. The building is set on 2.3 acres. It is hidden at the back of a dead end street in the Village of Saranac Lake. The way the property lies, the entrance road could easily be gated off to make a very private estate.
