Garnet Hill Lodge is located near all the best things to do in the Adirondacks, especially for a romantic winter getaway. When you stay with us, you’ll have prime access to the Garnet Hill Outdoor Center and 55 kilometers of daily-groomed cross-country skiing trails right outside the door.

The Outdoor Center also offers 15 kilometers of snowshoeing trails, fat bike rentals, and access to a wealth of backcountry ski trails. Cross-country ski and snowshoe trail passes are included with your overnight stay.

Looking to take on a more exhilarating experience this winter? Visit Gore Mountain in nearby North Creek for some of the finest slopes in the entire Adirondack region. This could be a great introduction to skiing or snowboarding with your significant other. Gore offers a variety of trails for all skill levels, dining options, and special events too.

If you want to do something more relaxing, head to Chestertown for a romantic sleigh ride. These are offered by Circle B Ranch where you can be dashing through the snow with your loved one. Afterwards, come warm up by the fire with our finest dining at the Log House Restaurant.

Make Plans for Romantic On-Site Dining

Garnet Hill Lodge, unlike some other winter lodging properties, has a cozy, log cabin-style Adirondack restaurant. There’s nothing better than a delicious home-cooked meal near a crackling fireplace inside the romantic Log House Restaurant.

Our talented culinary team has created an inventive yet classic dinner menu that pairs perfectly with award-winning wine and sweeping Thirteenth Lake views. Choose between pan-seared halibut, vegetable risotto, grilled NYS elk steak, and other entrees.

Or, for a quick meal after a couple hours on the trails, stop by our Bobcat Bar & Grill on the second floor of the Outdoor Center. Open on weekends and holiday weekends during ski season, the Bobcat welcomes visitors to enjoy good food and local beers and wines.

Experience a Restful Night’s Sleep in the Charming Lodge

After each full day of Adirondack adventures and delicious local cuisine, retreat to your comfortable, rustic, and romantic Log House lodging for an evening of relaxation. Choose one of the Log House Balcony Rooms so that you can wake up to amazing mountain views in the morning.

In addition, both of our campus cottages, Tea House and The Birches, are perfectly nestled in the woods. These create a secluded, cabin-like experience that other upstate New York resorts simply cannot provide. Look forward to wooded views, spacious accommodations, in-room TVs, and more.

Overall, there are plenty of options for your romantic winter getaway by staying with us. Book your trip today and join us for lasting memories this season.
