Separation anxiety is real. And I am not referring to my dog’s angst, but of my own about leaving her behind. It’s that feeling of guilt as you look into those sad, liquid dark eyes. And if I pack my hiking shoes in front of her, and she starts wagging her tail, my guilt is unbearable. I want to save you from all of that, so 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... continue reading

Underrated Activities When we think of the Adirondacks we often think of all the awesome outdoor activities. So, this week, we decided to focus on the more lesser-known or underrated activities that are available.  Living in the Lake Placid Region I feel like I'm pretty well-rounded: I make my way outside to enjoy nature at minimum a few days a week; I can shop on Main Street or grab dinner at one of our many restaurants whenever the mood strikes; I take in as many of the free music and cultural events as my schedule allows. I am always on the go.  And that, my friends, is exactly what... continue reading
