Lake George in itself is about as picturesque as you could imagine; the Sagamore in Lake George takes it to a whole new level.
From the moment you drive up to the historical building, old-world charm greets you. If you’ve ever seen the movie, Somewhere in Time with Jane Seymour, that’s what this hotel reminds me of.
Although there are several different residential buildings within the Sagamore, we prefer the historical hotel. When you walk through the lobby to the back patio, you are greeted with a view of the lake that is breathtaking.
Love early mornings on the patio watching the sunrise and the fog lift.
The accommodations, although somewhat dated, are welcoming and comfortable.
There is plenty to do, or you can do nothing at all. Personally, ‘nothing’ works for me, with the exception of eating, a little boutique shopping, and the spa, I don’t need much more than that.
Great ideas for a ‘fashion blogger’ and her daughter. ☺
If you like to hike, there are a few of the best trails around, or you can go to the highest point as we did on Prospect Mountain.
Late afternoon you can sit on the patio or one of many spots overlooking the lake, or you can mellow out by one of the massive fireplaces either in the lounge/bar area or the lobby.
We spent a day walking around the town of Bolton Landing which has several boutiques as well as restaurants on every block.
We are a family that loves macaroons and The Forest Hill ADK Cafe was a great place to stop for that and a coffee.
A couple of the restaurants are literally right on the water at the hotel itself, which is where my husband and I prefer to eat.
Honestly, it was a great escape that I would recommend to anyone who needs to recharge once in a while and just reconnect.
