Lantern-lit Sleigh Rides

The only lantern-lit sleigh rides in the Adirondacks! Meander over nature trails and to the shores of serene Lake Clear, lit by real kerosene lanterns.

Imagine When Sleighs Were a Lifeblood of Winter

Ride with a local farm on a beautiful wooden sleigh as it journeys through the Lodge's lantern-lit wooded trails while the stars show the way to the lake. Step back in time to when the Lake Clear Lodge & Retreat operated in the Prohibition days, where they transported both people and the "spirits" of the woods via sleigh!

The Lake Clear Lodge & Retreat's partners with a local farm to offers sleigh rides 25-minutes from Lake Placid and 15-minutes from Saranac Lake.

Closed For The 2021/2022 Season; We'll See You In December!

Sleigh Rides

The lantern-lit sleigh rides are provided by a local farm and we do not control the schedule, government regulations, or the weather! Though they do have a Holiday Wagon in the event of suboptimal weather, if the farm cancels, the Speakeasy Event will still take place and we expect you there. PLEASE NOTE: no alcohol or drinks are permitted on the sleigh. All food and beverage on the Lake Clear Lodge property MUST be provided by the Lake Clear Lodge, per New York State law. We are required to confiscate beverages that have not been purchased at the Lake Clear Lodge & Retreat. Check back for added dates and always confirm your ride if traveling a distance as weather patterns vary. The farm will always attempt to notify guests if the ride is cancelled for any reason but it is your responsibility to confirm prior to arrival. A credit card deposit is required as each sleigh is reserved for a limited number of people.

Speakeasy Event

Incidentals and extras such as, but not limited to, drinks, appetizers, desserts, and workshops are not included. The Lake Clear Lodge & Retreat's Adirondack Alps is a limited seating restaurant. Chef Cathy is cooking for you, and the Lodge Staff is preparing your table for you and your party. If the farm needs to cancel for reasons other than extreme weather, we will still be expecting you for dinner.
