Fodor's Review

In 1887 the author of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and Treasure Island spent a year in Saranac Lake being treated for tuberculosis. Today the quaint farmhouse where he lived contains his original furniture as well as a collection of Stevenson memorabilia, including early photographs, personal letters, and his velvet smoking jacket.

Robert Louis Stevenson Memorial Cottage and Museum Review

This is a great little museum. Tours are conducted by the curator of the museum who has an unbelievable wealth of knowledge about the famous author. The tour would be interesting for anyone, even those who have no knowledge about the author and his work. A beautiful little site for a visit if you have an hour free. (note: info at the museum says it is open until Columbus Day and year round by appointment).
