Create the perfect romantic retreat in the mountains with these choose-your-own itinerary options:

Find Wine & Takeout Pairings

Pair a bottle of wine from one of the shops in town with your takeout from a Lake Placid restaurant. Several of our dining establishments are open for takeout, including the Lake Placid Pub & Brewery, Dack Shack, and Great Adirondack Brewing Company. Pair a burger with a hearty red, a garden fresh salad with crisp white wine or a light red, and sip and savor your meal in a location of your choosing. The knowledgeable staff at Terry Robards Wine & Spirits and The Wine & Spirit Shoppe will help you select the perfect vintage for the perfect view! For a spectacular sunset meal, head to your nearest vista facing West to enjoy dinner and show.

Hike Baker Mountain

A hike up Baker Mountain in Saranac Lake is a must for anyone who has been cooped up and needs to stretch their legs. This short but mighty hike is steep, so it's a moderate trek that takes about 20-30 minutes to summit, but oh, the views! The entire hike is just under two miles roundtrip, but scenic lookouts provide views of the High Peaks, the Saranac Lake Chain, and Lake Flower. Plus the summit offers ample space to relax and enjoy a toast to your future as a couple. Plenty of shorter hikes and nature trails are located close to the resort, so finding a trailhead will be a cinch.

Enjoy S'mores at the Lake House

S'mores around the campfire at Lake House is a must-do. Lake House, one of High Peaks Resort's signature experiences overlooks Mirror Lake. Every night in summer and on warmer fall nights, the campfire is lit to welcome guests from each of our three hotels to gather together. Our favorite time to go is when the last of the sunset hasn't quite faded from the distant mountain peaks and the moon has just started to rise. The campfire at Lake House is the perfect place to gather to toast marshmallows, feast on s'mores, and plan your new life together.

Feel the tension of the last few months ease from your body with a massage that incorporates CBD oil, or refresh your locks with a vibrant new color and cut. Call ahead to schedule an appointment. Certain treatments may not be available due to reopening restrictions, but our staff is taking every precaution to keep you safe and relaxed.
