This iconic rustic getaway for East Coast urbanites is a couple miles down the road from the village of Lake Placid and Whiteface Ski Resort, but it remains the only luxury accommodation on the lake in the heart of the Adirondacks, and feels completely cut off. Cabins sit just two feet from shore, with picture windows framing Whiteface Mountain and 6 million acres of birch and maple wilderness. Explore it by canoe or on the Jackrabbit Trail – with a staff naturalist, or Maggie, the resident golden retriever who knows the surrounding trails better than anyone [from $475; lakeplacidlodge.com].
