    The Adirondacks – home to the word ‘vacation’

How to enjoy Upstate New York

Swap Upstate for Upscale and you won’t be far out. Theodore Roosevelt was sworn in as President at North Creek Station and the Rockefellers built a log cabin in the woods – chandeliers obligatory

  • Hike up Mt Marcy to experience unforgettable views and find the source of the Hudson River; Lake Tear of the Clouds
  • Let your feet dangle in the clear lake waters as you watch the sunset from your private jetty; in winter skate from the door of your lakeside log cabin
  • Allow yourself just one more S’More as the embers glow red under the stars of your night-time bonfire

One of the best things about America is the choice of great outdoors destinations. In Upstate New York the Adirondacks - long time favourite vacation destinations of the Rockefellers, Astors and Roosevelts - provide the perfect wilderness to get away from it all. The untouched forests and lakes are accessible in under five hours from New York City, Boston or Philadelphia and just an hour if you fly.

In winter enjoy the excellent skiing opportunities to be had at two-time host of the winter Olympics at Lake Placid. Or for a more leisurely break, relish the crunch of snow under your snowshoes as you walk in the woods before warming yourself by a blazing log fire with a single malt whisky. In summer, pack a picnic and hike to the most remote picnic spot you can find for peace, relaxation and the sweetest fresh air you’ll ever breathe.
