Lake Placid Lodge, NY

12 of 13

Rustic luxe is the mantra at this chic Relais & Chateaux lodge, set on the shores of aptly named Lake Placid. With snow dusting the surrounding pines and a sheet of lonely ice stretched out in front of you, curl up in the quiet corners of the lodge, which was destroyed by a fire in 2005 but gorgeously rebuilt. Stay in a lodge room or suite, or disappear into one of the very private cabins and enjoy features like stone fireplaces, handmade birch beds, and lake views. During the day, go for a snowshoe or a ski, then return for a gourmet meal, followed by a lakeside bonfire and s’mores. Doubles from $325. —TravelandLeisure.com Staff
