Posted in Fall at Garnet Hill, General, Things to Do
As summer subtly shifts to autumn, Garnet Hill Lodge welcomes hundreds of “leaf peepers” to our particularly serene slice of the Adirondacks Mountains. Because fall is arguably the most popular wedding season in Upstate New York, many of these visitors are in town for a well-deserved bachelorette party or girlfriends getaway. And don’t forget—we’re an easy yet gorgeous drive from New York City, Boston, Albany, Syracuse, and far beyond! What sets us apart from all other nearby Adirondack hotels is our on-site activities, fine dining, and, of course, those jaw-dropping mountain views. If you’re aiming to plan a relaxing, adventurous, and inexpensive girlfriends getaway, look no further than beautiful Garnet Hill Lodge.
During autumn’s peak, the natural beauty of North River, NY, remains unrivaled as our mountain range transforms into a beautiful meld of crimson, marigold, amber, and kelly green. While the best vantage point of the valley can be obtained from our relaxing Adirondack chairs, the Log House balcony rooms feature awe-inspiring vistas of Thirteenth Lake and the surrounding mountains. These balcony rooms are equally stylish, comfortable, and rustic—perfect for a one-of-a-kind girlfriends getaway. Each room also has a newly-renovated bathroom!
Perhaps the best aspect of a girlfriends getaway to Garnet Hill Lodge is that you only have to embark on a short stroll to discover our Outdoor Center. Yes, autumn is ideal for long drives along our backcountry roads in search of the most vibrant foliage, but you and your girlfriends will also have convenient access to a wide variety of adventure-based activities right on our property. Spend your days hiking, canoeing, mountain biking, whitewater rafting, or fishing before retreating to the lodge for dinner, wine, and hot cocoa. The on-site Adirondack Mountains hiking, in particular, is a free, easy, and undeniably beautiful treat. We have written several hiking guides (including here and here) to ensure that your mid-autumn Adirondack adventure is nothing short of flawless.
A girlfriends getaway to the Adirondacks would be incomplete without a healthy dose of gourmet cuisine and Upstate New York wine. Perhaps our most dashing feature here at Garnet Hill Lodge is the Log House Restaurant and Pub, our Adirondack-style dining experience that’s highlighted by a wood-burning fireplace, made-from-scratch American fare, and mountain vistas. Our extensive wine list features impressive, award-winning labels from across the globe, including right here in Upstate New York. We almost always recommend the roasted Faroe Islands Salmon and the brown butter rainbow trout to our first-time customers, but the succulent, 28-day aged New York strip steak and mouthwatering filet mignon kebabs are both unquestionable crowd-pleasers.
