Meet a few innkeepers who transform Adirondack B&Bs into your second home: Charles Rouse and Brooke James arrived in Canton as college students; they stayed to open 24 East Main Street Bed & Breakfast in the Adirondack Seaway Region. Tuck into home-cooked waffles while they direct you 40-foot Lampson Falls for an afternoon plunge. Stay for a romantic getaway with Gene and Linda Merlino at The Lamplight Inn in Lake Luzerne of the Lake George Region, where piping hot French toast or a Western omelet wait in a sunny dining room. Then head out for an Adirondack Folk School workshop or a Lake George boat cruise. In Keene Valley outside of Lake Placid, Amy and Wayne Stoner greet hikers at the Snow Goose Bed and Breakfast. After a full plate of apple pecan pancakes, head for nearby hiking trailheads.
And if trail miles make your legs heavy, don't worry. Adirondack B&Bs promise a hot shower, cozy rooms for quality zzzs, and the aroma of freshly brewed coffee to wake you come morning.
