A Cozy Adirondack Winter Getaway

Even as the holiday season slips past us here in the Adirondack region of New York, the scents of winter pine and hot cocoa still fill the air and cozy fires burn brightly in our lodge room and restaurants. Bring your loved one on the coziest winter getaway to Hotel North Woods in Lake Placid, NY. Let your romantic side shine in the New Year as you experience a true Adirondack winter getaway.

There is nothing like getting away for a few days during the winter months to rekindle, relax, and rejoice about the new year. Plus, what could be better than going on a Lake Placid adventure with your special someone? Not much, if you ask us!

Our accommodations offer breathtaking views of Mirror Lake and the High Peaks. If you’re looking to stay in one night during your visit to Hotel North Woods, try out our Take One/Leave One book lending library in your room. These libraries offer the chance to read something new, while also leaving behind an amazing book for someone else to enjoy. It’s a great way to curl up next to your loved one and enjoy those snowy nights indoors. Try ordering our Romance Package and enjoy a bottle of wine, Adirondack chocolates and flowers in your room upon arrival for an extra-special touch!

Looking to get out on the town? Main Street is a great place to start to explore our local area. Check out some of our wonderful shops throughout the town.

Does the snow call to you? Fuel up with a hearty Adirondack breakfast at our Cabin Grill restaurant, grab a thermos of hot chocolate and walk across the street to Mirror Lake for a little ice skating or enjoy an invigorating cross-country ski trip at Mt. Van Hoevenburg (rentals available). If you’re a veteran or a newbie, snowshoeing at Henry’s Woods or the Peninsula Trails is a great way to experience our area. If you didn’t bring your own snowshoes, rentals are available at EMS on Main Street. Winter brings quite a bit of snow to our area, so there are plenty of trails for you to enjoy.

If you want to go fast, hit the toboggan chute for a wild ride. In addition to Mirror Lake, there are several indoor and outdoor ice skating rinks throughout Lake Placid, as well. Plus, many places offer rentals if you choose to not bring your own, such as The Hockey Depot. Which is just a short walk from Mirror Lake. You can always try out the Olympic Oval if you’re in the mood for Winter Olympic Skating history. Hold hands as you skate your way around the rink, talk about when you first started skating (even if it’s your first time!). Skating can be a great bonding moment and a romantic way to end the night.

Need something fun for date night? Bring your special someone down to our Delta Blue restaurant. With live music on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights and Blues Hall of Famer’s performing on a regular basis, it’s the place to be!

No matter how you choose to rekindle your romance during the new year, whether it’s cross-country skiing, tobogganing, snowshoeing or simply snuggling up by one of our warm fireplaces with a good book, we know that you’ll have the perfect, cozy winter getaway at Hotel North Woods.
