This itinerary is more than a catchy name! It’s a fantastic combination of soft adventure options for more active groups and diverse tour opportunities for those that just want to sit back, relax and enjoy fabulous sightseeing. Whether it’s fascinating history, exploration of the great outdoors or fabulous lake and mountain views, the Lake George Area in New York’s Adirondacks has a little something for groups of every age and interest.
In September 1901, Teddy Roosevelt learned he was to be the 26th President of the United States when he reached the North Creek Station at dawn after hiking in the Adirondacks. The North Creek Depot Museum reunites the past with the present with its exhibits that tell the tale of Teddy’s midnight ride to the station and impact of his presidency on American life. Afterward, try rail biking along the Hudson River with Revolution Rail Company. Pedal through the scenic woods and over the Hudson River on a 200-foot trestle before enjoying a special lunch at the Adirondack-style Garnet Hill Lodge.
Garnet Hill Lodge, an authentic Adirondack hotel, restaurant and four-season resort is the perfect home base for an active group. Comfortable guest rooms accommodate singles, doubles and couples in an updated rustic style surrounded by the natural beauty of the mountains, woods and lakes that make this park so special.
Breakfasts are a delicious hot and cold buffet, and can be accompanied by a build-your own lunch spread allowing participants to make themselves a lunch to enjoy on the trails or on the road. Dinner is a delicious variety of homemade dishes that provide something for everyone and are often noted as a highlight of participants’ trips.
During the day, branch out from Garnet Hill to visit area attractions or enjoy outdoor activities right here at Garnet Hill. In the Summer and Fall, we offer hiking, biking and paddling, in the Spring we can hook you up with experienced guides for fishing tours, and in the Winter, we are a world-class cross-country ski and snowshoe resort. Certified instructors and guides can be arranged to accompany your group during any season, and make sure your participants get the most out of their stay in the Adirondack park.
