You’ve stayed by the lake, now it’s time to discover another side of Lake George. Switch up your next Lake George vacation and stay at Roaring Brook Ranch, where you’ll ride into the sunset in a lush wooded setting and experience serious ranch-style luxury in their upscale accommodations.
Enjoy Majestic Horses, Miles of Scenic Trails & a Return to Your Center
Roaring Brook Ranch Resort was recently acquired by a new ownership and has undergone substantial renovations. While the update includes modern features that discerning travelers expect, the character of the Ranch has been preserved.
Experienced handlers are paired up with each rider to guide guests on a majestic horseback ride on miles of scenic trails with views of Prospect Mountain. This activity is available for guests ages 10 and up, all skill levels are welcome, and the trails are riding ready spring, summer, and fall. And, that’s not the only therapeutic activity offered at the Ranch.
“Horseback riding remains a very popular attraction,” Regional Director of Sales Diane Young told us, “but we are also targeting the wellness sector. Yoga, wellness retreats, and shopping weekends are just some of the packages that are available.”
As horseback riding has been proven to reduce stress and improve emotional well-being, it serves as a perfect compliment to the wellness-centered activities that the new owners have added to the roster.
Relax in Recently Renovated, Ultra Comfortable Rooms
“All guestrooms and public spaces have been remodeled/renovated and we expect a full completion of the entire Ranch by the end of the year,” Young told us. “Guests can expect a full facelift with brand new, state-of-the-art amenities.”
Indeed, Roaring Brook Ranch may have horses and a stable but this is no barn you’re staying in! The stylish yet comfortable accommodations are perfect for putting your feet up after a day on the trails. All rooms include two queen beds or one king and all have sitting areas with a couch or chair, and a large flat HDTV.
A New Restaurant & More Upgrades in the Works
Roaring Brook Ranch has a new Indian restaurant in the works, Kebab Chi. We were blown away by the extensive menu, which includes traditional Indian fare like lamb chops kebab and Indian chicken curry rice, but there are also sandwiches, pizzas, and much more. The appetizer pictured above is tomato tartare with crunchy beans, Melba toast, and a house salad.
Other renovations are in the works: There will be a second restaurant, a cafe called The Oak Tree, that will serve breakfast sandwiches, smoothies, coffee, burgers, and more. There is an indoor and outdoor pool, both under construction, that should be completed in August, and they’re waiting on furniture delivery (delayed due to COVID-19) for the main lodge. They also have a Conference Center that is expected to be ready in August as well.
Guests can also look forward to tennis courts, volleyball, basketball, shuffleboard, corn hole, bocce ball, and ping pong to keep them busy during their stay. And, glamping is coming in 2021!
Hear It From the Guests
Roaring Brook Ranch has received rave reviews since the new owners took over. Here are a few from Google:
“Our stay was during COVID and I have to say I felt 100% comfortable and safe, everything was immaculate. We look forward to coming back and already recommended it to family and friends. I’ve visited Lake George many times over the years and wish I knew about this place sooner because I would have never stayed anywhere else!”
“I’m not the kind of person who writes reviews. . .ever. However, I really feel like Roaring Brook Ranch deserves one. . .When looking for a weekend getaway, it is imperative that I’m able to bring my dog with me. Most places that allow dogs are all chains/corporate and I always feel like I’m inconveniencing them by having him with me. It always adds extra stress. That was not the case whatsoever with Roaring Brook. . .the staff was beyond accommodating.”
Get Away From It All at Any Time of the Year
When we spoke with Young she talked about how excited she is to host guests during the non-summer months. “We are creative and will have as much to offer in winter as we do in summer,” she said, calling the Ranch “an escape from the unusual” to be enjoyed at any time during the year.
Those looking for a different kind of Lake George experience will appreciate Roaring Brook Ranch. But know that while they are off the beaten path for that get-away-from-it-all-in-the-Adirondacks feel, they’re also about 10 minutes from Lake George Village. Guests can stay here to relax and have peace and quiet, but they’re also close to prime dining, shopping, and attractions.
