Weddingbells (Toronto) - - DESTINATIONS HOT HONEYMOONS -

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.
