Sagamore Resort on Lake George

Sagamore Resort

Destinations / North America

Spending a quiet weekend on the lake with the family, a glass of wine in hand and quintessential fall foliage views is a coveted seasonal tradition for most travelers — and for good reason. Sprinkle in the luxury of a 4-star resort, old-fashioned private club-meet-camp vibes and you have the Sagamore Resort on Lake George.

 

Technically in the tiny town of Bolton Landing, New York, 10 miles down the road from Lake George town proper, the Sagamore is tucked away from the main drag, a short bridge away. Essentially its own island on Lake George, the Sagamore is a playground for all ages.

Collect your fresh-pressed cider and apple sugar cookies at check-in and settle in for some serious fall feels.

 

Between the heated pool and hot tub outside; heated pool and hot tub inside; full fitness center; spa and salon; several on-site bars and restaurants; ample Adirondack chairs to unwind and enjoy the view; rows of lounge chairs overlooking the lake; complimentary boat tours of Lake George on The Morgan; a full rec center complete with tennis courts, golf, games for kids and a batting cage; s’mores and bonfires; live music; and somehow even more by night — there’s almost no reason to leave. Read more about the resort activities and winter offerings if you decide to go later in the season.

If you can peel yourself away from the stunning pavilion and lakeside views for a visit to town, the quiet location offers easy walking access to the short strip of street, boasting local wineries, breweries, New York bagels, quaint dining locales, antique shops and boutique stores.

One of the pricier locales in the area, the luxury and convenience is definitely worth it. Check out seasonal offers before booking, including family packages and romantic getaways.

 

Summer may be the busiest season for the Sagamore, but the fall is a best-kept secret if you can get away for a weekend or longer.

The fall foliage backdrop and crisp air is the perfect setting for whatever you choose — just like camp, the resort offers a build-your-own adventure-style vacation. The kids can run off and play, explore, swim and more with you nearby, or just meet you later for dinner.

The Sagamore offers enough resort activities to entertain or leisurely pursuits to soak in at your own pace with fall views as the backdrop for both.

 

Don’t forget to grab your homemade apple pie at check-out!
