The heritage of the Adirondack Great Camps lives on at modern Adirondack resorts such as Garnet Hill Lodge, where 25 rooms perch above Thirteenth Lake on a 175-acre property just 10 miles from the town of North Creek in the Lake George region. "We're centered in the mountains with a beautiful view," says Garnet Hill's Amber Millington. "You feel isolated, yet cozy." Rooms lack a TV or phone, which amplifies the sense of place and only-found-here experiences that are the hallmark of Garnet Hill. In summer, a 50-kilometer network of on-site cross-country ski trails opens to mountain bikes making it the perfect Adirondack resort experience for any season.
Outposts of luxury are found throughout the Adirondacks and include White Pine Camp, built for President Calvin Coolidge in 1907 on Osgood Pond in the Northern Adirondacks, not far from Saranac Lake, NY. Or, for the ultimate wilderness resort experience, Elk Lake Lodge sits amid a 12,000 reserve with 40 miles of private trails. Ideal for fishermen and hikers alike, this popular getaway offers resort luxury tucked into a quiet corner of the Adirondacks outside of Schroon Lake.
Experience for yourself why generations have been returning to the Adirondacks for luxurious mountain getaways. From expansive and historic Great Camps where you will be pampered to indulgent retreats tucked in the backcountry, the Adirondacks offer perfect resorts to relax and escape the crowds.
