There’s a lot to love about the Lake George region in the winter, particularly if you’re a couple looking to get away for an intimate trip. Check out Lake George’s latest recognition below, and how we ranked among top romantic winter getaway locations in the country!
Trips to Discover, a vacation planning website, called out Lake George as a great place for couples to reconnect and enjoy a slower pace of life in our winter wonderland. They cited the many romantic places to stay, in particular the Sagamore Resort, the accommodations of which can include fireplaces or terraces with lake views.
Lake Placid also made this list, along with the Berkshires in Massachusetts, and Woodstock, Vermont.
Although we 100% agree on Lake George being a top winter destination for couples, we can’t help but point out a few extra bonuses to a romantic vacation here, besides luxury, fireplace lodging:
- Dining under the stars in a heated igloo
- Taking a horse-drawn carriage ride at the Lake George Winter Carnival or via Winterfest
- Walking through a frozen wonderland at Ice Castles (tickets go on sale November 28!)
- Grabbing a cocktail together at an ice bar
While the above romantic activities take place at certain times – Winterfest is December 27, 2022 to March 5, 2023; the Winter Carnival is in February, etc. – there are other activities you can enjoy at any time during the season, like embarking on a winter hiking challenge together, or getting snug by the fire at a cozy bar.
