When it comes to things to do in Lake George and Bolton Landing, the beauty of staying at The Sagamore Resort is that you can easily immerse yourself in all the resort has to offer for a day and then resurface to experience the best of the nearby towns.
Day On at The Sagamore Resort
Breakfast at La Bella Vita
The quality of the breakfast at La Bella Vita is matched by the restaurant’s setting – a warm, richly decorated interior with the option to eat alfresco on the restaurant’s deck, surrounded by picturesque views. Diners can choose from the buffet or order off the menu, which includes customer favorites like the breakfast panini, lobster eggs benedict, and the lemon ricotta pancakes.
Stroll the Resort’s Nature Trail
Running along the shoreline of Green Island while popping in and out of the woods, the resort’s winding Nature Trail offers up-close-and-personal views of Lake George in all its glory.
Relaxing by the (Indoor) Pool
It wouldn’t be a vacation without a dip in a pool – and luckily, The Sagamore Resort offers the option of a heated indoor pool, surrounded by chaise lounges and floor-to-ceiling windows that offer views of the surrounding Adirondack Mountains.
A Visit to the Spa
A pre-dinner massage is the perfect way to completely decompress and work out any lingering stress. The Spa and Salon at The Sagamore has a variety of treatment options available, like the Signature Custom Massage (tailored to your body’s needs) and the Deep Tissue Massage (helps relieve muscle discomfort after strenuous activity). There are also skin treatments, like the Signature Custom Facial (addresses your specific skin needs), the Executive Men’s Facial, or more intensive clinical facial treatments – all carried out by experienced therapists.
Dinner at The Club Grill
Recount the day at The Club Grill Steakhouse, a ruggedly elegant restaurant that operates seasonally in a Tudor-style building that sits on a hill above the course. Premium steaks cuts (think ribeye, filet mignon, and New York strip) are the menu’s highlights, and tasty sides, like the loaded baked potato, macaroni and cheese, and grilled asparagus, top off a full, delicious meal.
A Nightcap at Mr. Brown’s Pub
The warm wood aesthetic (on the bar, tables, chairs, ceiling, and floor) and the antler chandeliers at Mr. Brown’s Pub are perfectly Adirondack. And, with beverage service until midnight and live entertainment, it’s the ideal spot to wind down your day.
Day Off in Bolton Landing
Breakfast at Bolton Beans
Set in a 1946 Worcester Lunch Car with all original stainless steel and cobalt blue stools, Bolton Beans might be perceived as just a diner, but it’s more like a barista’s dream, with specialty hot chocolates, lattes, espressos, and cappuccinos. Try their famous caramel vanilla latte and pair it with their equally famous breakfast plate, the Adirondack Hungry Person (two pancakes, two eggs, bacon and sausage, and toast).
Stroll the Village of Bolton Landing
Positioned on the western side of Lake George, Bolton Landing is something like the quieter, more upscale cousin to the village of Lake George, which is located just 10 miles south with its arcades, mini-golf, and bars. The walkable village of Bolton Landing, however, which stretches Lake Shore Drive, may be short, but it sure is sweet with a plethora of charming boutiques. A few of our favorites: Happy Jack’s, Indian Tepee Gift Shop, Serendipity, and Black Bass Antiques. If your tastes lean a little more toward gourmet souvenirs, you’ll also find Bolton Landing Brewing Company and a tasting room for the Adirondack Winery along this stretch.
Dinner at The Huddle Kitchen & Bar
Perched on the shores of Lake George on Lake Shore Drive, this family-run restaurant boasts warm comfortable Adirondack-style décor and a comfort-food menu to match – think baby back ribs, chicken parmesan, New York strip steak, and tuna tacos.
An After-Dinner Treat
Find Ben & Jerry’s classic and clever flavors in the heart of Bolton Landing, just across the street from The Huddle. Just don’t be dissuaded if you see a line – it moves quickly, so you’re no more than 10 minutes from a whopping waffle cone of Chunky Monkey or Phish Food.
