FrontRunners: Adirondack Renaissance

The Editors

A 2005 fire destroyed the circa-1882 Lake Placid Lodge (www.lakeplacidlodge.com), but the Adirondack Mountains landmark has been rebuilt, and the resort is reopening its main lodge this month. The new structure retains the original’s rustic charm, with fieldstone fireplaces, exposed beams, and log-and-twig furniture throughout. Suites, however, are now much larger than they were, and each has its own covered porch. The setting is as pristine as ever, nestled on the water’s edge amid pines and hiking trails in upstate New York. Guests in the lodge’s restaurant enjoy views of Lake Placid and Whiteface Mountain while dining on local fish and game. The resort has added a 34-foot mahogany Hacker-Craft to its fleet of boats, which already included a pontoon for evening cocktail cruises.
