Fall Travel inspiration: The Lake Placid Lodge


Hi my lovelies. I hope everyone had a great weekend. All weekend, i’ve been daydreaming about visiting this rustic gem aka The Lake Placid Lodge. It  is located in the Tri-Lakes region of the Adirondack mountains in upstate New York.  I would love to rendezvous there for a week or so when dearest hubby returns home. I really cannot think of the perfect adjectives to describe it. All i know is it’s been beckoning to me since the first time i read about it here. It has breathtaking mountain and lake vistas, a fireplace in every room or cabin, and a decor that exudes romance, elegance and does so in a sexy rustic kind of way:-) Lake Placid was also built by hand in the Arts and Crafts tradition and blends seamlessly with its lakeside setting. Each of the 30 rooms and cabins is unique, with custom twig and birch bark furniture, a private porch, and deep-soaking tubs to warm up a chilly body (or two).






 



romantic dinner for two…


So peaceful…

Stunning place, right? Welcome to Monday my friends. XX

  1. Is this real?? I know it is...I've been to Lake Placid when I was a little girl...but these photos...they take my breath away! I simply want to fall into them! Do try to go away with your husband - it's a place that is so perfectly named! Tranquil, calm, still - definitely good for ones soul and to share with ones soul-mate!

  8. Oh my goodness! Now you've got me daydreaming! (How am I supposed to get any more work done today???) :) This is a lovely place. I adore rustic charm and log buildings (we have a decent selection here in Montana). We definitely don't have anything quite this fancy though! I'd love to spend a night, or two....or three. :)

  11. Hi Stacey!
    I would love to spend some quality time with my sweetheart there, he is gone a lot (not as long as your hubby, but still, it's not nice...), so I keep on dreaming about it, looking at the pics. Oh, and I scrolled to one of your first posts, baby Z. first birthday, loved it! My girls are having their b-days soon (me too) but the first is always special. Enjoy the evening!

  67. You are right in everything you say about both sides – either Buda or Pest. It all depends really on what you are looking for! I stayed for the first time in Buda this past January and I liked it much more. It was quiet, offered great views across the Danube, and it was either a bit of a walk or a quick taxi ride to get to Pest and its party areas.them for visit here to get more information.
