LAKE PLACID NEW YORK
Located inside the sprawling Adirondack Park in upstate New York, Lake Placid (home of the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympics) is the perfect getaway for outdoors lovers, equally stunning in winter and summer. Lake Placid’s beautiful Adirondack Mountains, lakes and hiking trails beg to be explored, as does the town’s quaint main street, which looks like a darling alpine village and is packed with amazing boutiques and restos.
For your honeymoon stay in this wilderness paradise, Whiteface Lodge is a must. Built in a wooded, ultra-private location off Lake Placid’s main roadway, this Arts-andCrafts-style lodge is simply breathtaking. Timber beams and panelling prevail throughout, as do Tiffany-style lamps and rustic touches, creating a luxe camp feel. There are 94 guest suites in-house, all of which are spacious and beautifully appointed with fireplaces and handcrafted furniture.
The lodge’s Kanu restaurant not only boasts an outstanding menu of locally sourced, seasonal ingredients, but the room itself (finished in hand-hewn log beams) will take your breath away with its dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows, mile-high ceilings and granite fireplaces. The space is popular for weddings—just one of the many unforgettable elements of the lodge that had swooning, naming it one of the top venues in the world to host a winter wedding. The Lodge’s main entrance; enjoy time at Whiteface’s private beach; the beauty of the Adirondacks.
