At this cozy complex, designed in the style of turn-of-the-last-century Great Camps (picture the Vanderbilts’ Sagamore), snag a Signature Suite in the lakeside building off the main lodge. The Adirondack furnishings, including an elaborate tree-branch bed frame, are locally made, and the terrace overlooking the inn’s namesake lake gives you the feel of a secluded hideaway despite the main-street address. Make the most of it with room service from the View restaurant’s menu of gourmet comfort food – think Parmesan Custard Caesar salad and short ribs braised in local Saranac pale ale – and follow with a soak in the suite’s XXL tub.77 Mirror Lake Dr., 518-523-2544
