SARANAC LAKE — The Hotel Saranac will open in January, according to General Manager Michael Salyers.

ì“I don’t have a firm date,” said Salyers, “but we have the walk-through with the town and with the health department next week. After that, we’ll know.î”

Salyers said the process will lead to the hotel being issued a Certificate of Occupancy, a necessity before the doors open to the public.

The Roaring Twenties Winter Gala planned for Jan. 20 will go on as planned. Ticket sales will benefit Historic Saranac Lake.Tickets, which are $100, are on sale until Jan. 8.
