Winter Stay, Speakeasy, & Sleigh Rides
Shh, you’ll need a password to get in…we were open during the 1920’s you know and some interesting things happened here in these Sylvan woods, a mere 2 hours away from those Canadian rum runners and those of us who had “spirit(s)”! Some which we will tell you, others we’ll leave you clues to discover. And speaking of history, as now the oldest operating lodge in the 6 million acre Adirondack Park, beginning in 1886 with Cathy (Fisher-Otis, now Hohmeyer) family who conceived it as a stagecoach inn, we keep this National Geographic Traveler award winning “sense of place,” with lantern-lit sleigh rides! The result is a magical, mysterious and fun place to re-live an iconic Adirondack winter experience (and we may the only ones left where you can do this in one place, so book now!) which includes:
- Crackling Fire & a Place to Snuggle – Great Lodge Style
Your own secluded chalets hand-crafted by 3 generations of family. Contemplate, rejuvenate from the crackling embers of your own fireplace or book a lake-view suite with bubbling Jacuzzi.
- Speakeasy Dinner Experience
You will need a password to get in. You’ll have to find the hidden door first. Once in the 1920’s Speakeasy with immense fireplace, beware we may be raided! It was illegal to drink you know during the Prohibition. Luckily for you, we have hidden tables…provided you can find them of course. A 1920’s dinner awaits inspired from the original Lodge menu.
The lantern-lit sleigh rides at the Lodge are provided through local farms. As proceeds go to them and the rides are availability, regulation, and weather dependent, the included sleigh ride ticket in our Stay & Speakeasy Experience Package will be confirmed upon your arrival.
Added Great Camp Experiences
In Great Camp tradition, as one of the last original Great Camps still open to the public, the following experiences are added to your booking.
