Upstate Getaway: The Whiteface Lodge

Navigating through the hotels available in upstate New York is almost as difficult as deciding on a restaurant for dinner in the city – the choices are endless. But with a little help from us, we’ll keep you in the know with the best places for a sweet escape, including new things to do and eat (food is important, can you tell?).

With that in mind, the grand Whiteface Lodge features a full-service resort spa with new luxury offerings on their spa menu, while the on-site restaurant Kanu has just started serving new seasonal dishes. Yes, that’s right: you’ve got two menus to be excited about.

Located just steps away from Lake Placid, the resort has always been a hot destination for nature-lovers and New Yorkers in need of quiet relaxation. With six million acres of recreation area surrounding the wood-beamed hotel, there’s certainly enough nature to explore on your morning hike – followed by a luxury spa treatment, of course.

Offering a complete menu of pampering services, the spa includes everything from two-hour massages to warm baths with therapeutic salts, and soothing facials. If that doesn’t take the city’s stress away and recharge your batteries, we’re not sure what will…

Ah, maybe dinner at Kanu will do the trick. Enjoy a refreshing honeydew gazpacho to start, or get your veggies in with a green salad, mixed with caramelized butternut squash and dried cranberries for a touch of sweetness. Then, tuck into truffled mashed potato with center cut filet, before rounding out your meal with carrot cake and vanilla ice cream.

Now all you need to do is dive into your bedroom suite, fitted with a plush king bed, rustic furnishings and bathrooms bigger than the average NYC apartment.
