Luxurious Lodges Available in the Adirondacks

If you're interested in seeing more of upstate New York, then consider a stay in one of the top resorts in the Adirondacks. The views throughout the region are stunning, and you'll find plenty to do throughout the year. If you want to spend some time relaxing indoors, then opt for a suite with your own fireplace and hot tub. In addition to renting suites, you can also rent private homes if you want a little more privacy and seclusion to return to after you explore the beauty of the area.

History and Nature

If you want to spend time enjoying the great outdoors along with some incredible views, then a log home in Lake Saranac is an excellent choice. The extraordinary park system in this region dates back to 1910, and it's known for its simple scenery and relaxing areas. Whether you're ready to learn more about herbs in the local herb garden or you want to go for a relaxing stroll in the fresh air, you'll enjoy spending time in this area.

Winter Sports in Lake Placid

Home to the 1980 Winter Olympics, Lake Placid features an impressive Olympic Jumping Complex. If you're looking for a more challenging facility to catch some air and fly to new levels, then the Adirondacks is sure to please you. This served as the training facility for Bill Demong, the Nordic Combined Olympian from the 2010 Vancouver games. The facility is open daily, and it features both winter and summer activities. The jumping complex is open in summer and winter, and warm-weather athletes enjoy extreme summer tubing as well as a wheeled luge. Even if you've never been on a pair of skis in your life, you'll still enjoy watching the athletes practice for upcoming competitions.

A Bridge Between Nature and Man

At The Wild Center, you can learn something new and ignite a love of nature in your children. This facility has something for people of all ages. Located in the heart of the Adirondacks, they're a prime example of how people and the natural world can live in harmony together. You'll find experiences, programs and exhibits that will change how you look at the world around you. If you stay at a luxury condo or lodge in Lake Placid, then you'll only be about an hour away from this impressive attraction.

Climate Considerations

Northern New York sees plenty of cold weather from November through April, and the summers are gentle with high temperatures typically reaching into the lower 80s. If you're interested in winter sports, then December, January and February are your best choice. If you're more focused on cooling off a little in the summer, then you'll want to plan your trip for June, July or August as these are the warmest months. However, the crowds also peak during these times, and the greatest rainfall is seen in the summer. Spring and fall will provide you with pleasant temperature and lower crowds, but be prepared for the fact that more attractions and shops may be closed during these transitional periods.

Transportation Options

Getting to the Adirondacks is easy because there are airports and Amtrak stations nearby. Fly in to the Plattsburgh International Airport or take a bus right into Lake Placid. If you live closer to the area, then you may choose to just drive so that you won't have to worry about renting a car. The region is only five hours away from Boston and a short four-hour drive from New York City.
