I am happy to report that Lake Placid, our beautiful, water-side village ringed by Adirondack mountains, is not just dog tolerant, but downright canine hospitable. It is common to see dogs in hotel lobbies, on outdoor restaurant decks, frolicking on hiking trails, and swimming in our lakes. In Lake Placid, not only does every dog have its day, every dog has its weekend getaway, too.
Apple picking the Coast
Can you feel it? I’m talking about the cool, crisp fall air. Now combine it with the feeling of warmth the bright sun brings as it pounds against your jacket. I absolutely love this time of year! Not only because of the striking beauty the colorful changing leaves bring to the landscape of the Adirondack Mountains, but something special takes place every year beyond the beauty of autumn. It’s harvest time! And I can feel it in the air.
3 fall treks
One of the premiere pleasures of our Adirondack fall foliage season is taking to our roads for maximum viewing angles. The varied geography here changes from lush forest to scenic meadows, with mountain ranges forming a colorful backdrop to the intensity of the leaves seen up close.

The dog days of summer are over, but in the beautiful foothills of the Adirondacks there is so much more to take in in the fall. One of the things I had the pleasure of participating in recently was golf!
Hunting season safety
Every year when September rolled around, my mom would put a bright red bandana around my dog's neck. I always wondered why, and when I asked about it she reminded me that hunting season was starting, and we don't want hunters mistaking our dog for another animal in the woods. When September rolled around a few weeks ago, I found myself searching for a red bandana or something brightly colored to tie around my dog's neck before we ventured out on a hike.
Surrounded by rugged wilderness, void of slopeside lodging or commercial development, Whiteface Mountain is a purist’s delight - a big ski hill with technical terrain and few distractions. It has the greatest vertical drop in the East and the folks at Whiteface have been working on building its web of trails and now has 86 of them for all abilities. Now the ski hill has turned its attention inward, that is to say, to renovating its lodges, to create a more modern feel but still maintain its authentic Adirondack character.
