|New York: Bolton Landing, The Sagamore - A Family Reunion Place with Charm and Tradition.
The private island resort on the shores of Lake George, is already a cherished tradition for many families.
Here's the scoop: With the introduction of the Family Reunion Getaway, the resort puts its group expertise to work on the most important gathering of all, the family reunion. With the expert assistance of its staff, The Sagamore creates memorable family gatherings that resonate with old-fashioned lakeside charm.
Each family is assigned a personal Family Reunion coordinator who will arrange lobster bakes, picnics and other dining options, organize a family photo session and order customized clothing and gifts through The Emporium Gift Shop.
While at The Sagamore, families can choose from a wide range of outdoor activities. Whether friendly or fiercely competitive, families can play golf on the resort’s Donald Ross Golf Course, set sail aboard a Colgate 26 to The Narrows, play tennis, kayak, fish, hike and swim in the lake or indoors. In winter, ice skating, sledding, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, as well as nearby downhill skiing and tubing, offer plenty of opportunities to reconnect.
Another part of The Sagamore’s appeal for family reunions is the range of accommodations it offers. Young families with children will find the spacious one- and two-bedroom Lodge Suites ideal, while the family patriarch may opt for the convenience of a guest room in the Historic Hotel. The Hermitage’s one-bedroom lofted suites with private balconies and The Condominiums are other lodging options.
Sagamore guests have their choice of a variety of extraordinary dining options, including Trillium bis, the resort’s fine dining room; Mister Brown’s, an Adirondack-styled casual restaurant; The Veranda, a glass-enclosed restaurant featuring panoramic views of the lake and offerings of tea, tapas, and creative drink specials. Take a lunch or dinner cruise aboard The Sagamore’s own vessel, The Morgan.
Located 60 miles north of Albany via Interstate 87, The Sagamore is a leisurely drive from most Mid-Atlantic, New England, Quebec and Ontario Province metropolitan areas, and is just a four-hour drive from New York City or Boston. Other travel options are available, including air transportation and Amtrak train service to Albany – the latter, a highlight in itself. The train travels along New York’s historic Hudson River Valley offering spectacular scenery in a relaxing setting. From Albany, guests of The Sagamore can request ground transportation – an hour’s drive for a nominal fee.
The Sagamore is an official landmark listed in the National Register of Historic Places and a member of the Historic Hotels of America, a recipient of the AAA Four-Diamond Award and a member of American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts.
Location on the planet.
