MUCH MORE THAN A GIFT SHOP

Much like the iconic Saranac Lake intersection from which it takes its name, Academy & Main is a crossroads – a brilliant shopping and social epicenter in the heart of downtown. Inspired by the mix of merchants whose shops lined the original hotel’s Arcade, Academy & Main will feature a curated array of shoplets within the store – beautiful vignettes filled with finds both near and far, so everyone can take home a piece of the Adirondacks, or a treasure to remember it by.

SHOP, SMILE, REPEAT

Inside Academy & Main we've created a unique shopping experience to mirror the Adirondack lifestyle. . . adventurous and filled with discovery, pristine and beautiful, exciting to behold, and remarkable to stroll through. Starting with the idea that shopping should be enjoyable, our environment is designed around exploring: wander between urban finds and ADK treasures – with an always-intriguing mix to explore, and something exciting around each turn, Academy & Main makes shopping fun, so you leave with a little something, including a smile.

GIFTS FROM BESPOKE TO BEGUILED

Whether you’re after a keepsake that captures the Adirondacks experience or a gift that simply speaks to your inner self, our blend of hand-selected goods and our attentive staff await you.
