This one is a bit of a throwback, but being in the thick of Fall, this gem of a spot should be shared for a weekend getaway idea. If you haven’t heard of this beautiful spot on Lake George, you should really check it out. It’s about a four hour drive from New York City and the perfect escape no matter the season. We were gifted a two night stay here by family friends as a wedding gift. It was an extremely generous and thoughtful gift. They had even booked us a weekend in advance ( right around the beginning of Sept.) for the ultimate viewing of fall foliage. The Sagamore was above and beyond what I had expected it to be. Arriving, you feel like royalty as you roll over the bridge which then ushers you through a sweeping driveway only to bring you in front of a beautiful mansion. The experience was amazing from the initial arrival and awaiting bottle of champagne, delicious dinners, sitting in Adirondack chairs soaking in some rays with a glass of wine overlooking unparalleled views of Lake George, a random Bavarian Festival, galavanting through town only to end it in a wine tasting. It’s also a great place to bring kids, there were lots of families. One of my favorite moments of the trip was an early morning hike we took in the woods along the river.. The sun was shining, leaves crunching under my feet and the husband was beside me, it couldn’t get better than this I thought. But then it did because we went shopping at the outlets on the way back home. 😉 Check out some of the scenes from the trip and recommended spots to enjoy!
