Lake Placid Lodge, New York
This Adirondack resort — the only one on Lake Placid — mixes a rustic vibe of the great camps of the early 20th-century with plenty of plush amenities and top-of-the-line details. The resort’s 13 rooms and 17 cabins feature beds hand-carved by local artisans, wood-burning fireplaces, stone-floored porches and a decor of art and antiques for an overall feel that’s full of romance and nostalgia. On-property activities range from hiking, fishing and boating in the summer to skiing, ice skating and lakeside bonfires in the winter. The Lodge also excels at cuisine, serving gourmet meals made with locally sourced seasonal ingredients.
