This grand Adirondack landmark on the shore of its namesake lake isn’t exactly new. Built in the late 1800s as a private camp, the lodge was sold and transformed into a hotel in 1946. In 2005, a kitchen fire destroyed the main building, and in 2008 it rose anew, more luxurious and refined than ever. The 30,000-square-foot lodge has 13 new suites, each with a king featherbed, stone fireplace and private balcony. The dining room is also new, headed by Culinary Institute of America–trained chef Kevin McCarthy, who gathers seasonal ingredients from farmers living within a 70-mile radius to craft simple but robust fare. No worries: You’ll burn it off on Whiteface’s 3,166 feet of vertical, 20 minutes away. $650–$1,550; lakeplacidlodge.com
