... around a corner and have a huge motorhome in their face! They hadn't even gotten to the 26.2 mile run yet. I can only imagine what they were worried would come at them during THAT portion of the race!
We found a KOA that had one spot left and parked it!
I did some laundry while Mike took the dogs out to chase down any straggling Iron ...

... mark that's been there for approximately 60 years.. A sweet girl car hop came out and greeted us and took our order. We sat at the picnic tables out doors and enjoyed this special hot dog treat. A hot dog smothered in chilli flavoured finely minced beef. You must eat 2 of these little doggies to fully enjoy the experience!

We then decided that we'd drive to Lake Placid, roughly and hour ...

On the shore of Lake Champlain!!

A travel blog entry by heavenonearth on Jun 24, 2014

Can't believe we're camping on the shores of Lake Champlain!!! We've had incredible experiences in this area of New York. This state continues to keep us on our toes!! We had an amazing hike through the Ausable Chasm where the river was rushing through a canyon of steep walls with incredible force (especially after several big storms the days before our visit.
Then yesterday we took a drive into the Adirondack mountains & rode our first gondola up the slope ...

Day 5-7 Adirondack Mountains

... in roughly 6 hours. Feet wet, bodies aching and muscles sore we stumbled back into camp. We were so tired we collapsed on the hard picnic table bench seats for a few minutes before continuing with the tedious task of cooking dinner. This trip is basically a full time job! After a quick chill break we cooked a nice spaghetti dinner with garlic bread and a bottle of Atwater Red Blend wine we picked up in the Finger Lakes. It was a lovely reward which put us to ...

Massawepie... A Boy's Memory of Heaven

... State. The name, Massawepie, is of Iroquois origin meaning "the beavers’ lake". In 1890, The Childwold Park House along with 21 “Queen Anne” cottages was opened on the shore of the lake, catering to affluent residents of New York City who sought to escape the summer heat. They would take the New York Central Railroad to Utica and then north to Childwold, being met by a stagecoach for the seven mile ride to the hotel. A few years later it ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Lake Placid Lodge

    This Lodge spoils you for any other place

    from

    We stayed at the lodge for 2 nights....'Hawk' Studio Cabin....the soaking tubs, impeccable room service..the breakfast was actually hot and delicious..fireplaces and unpretentious staff all help to make the lake, which is like glass, absolutely unforgettable. I can't say enough about this lodge, they accomodate your every need.

    Absolute Perfection

    from

    I surprised my husband on his 40th birthday with a three-night stay at the Lodge, which included suprise guests as well that the staff went to great lengths to hide until the last minute. The Lodge is beautiful; our two-bedroom cabin was perched right on the lake, and we had a never-ending supply of firewood which must have appeared out of thin air because we never saw who restocked it. Staff was courteous, polite and we were dared to ask for something they couldn't fulfill. There was nothing - it was perfect. The offerings in the restaurant were spectacular and the vegetarian dinner that was presented to me on Thanksgiving night was a feast. Think peaceful, serene and casually elegant. Thanks to all -we will be back!

    Heaven in NY

    from

    This has got to be the best hotel experience in NY state. Just over 4 hours from nyc, this place is able to transport you thousands of miles away.

    This was a fourth time staying at the lodge.

    The grounds are just postcard perfect. The rooms (we usually opt to stay in a lakeside cabin) are unique and amazing. The food is the best outside the city.

    Although there is new management including a new gm - Olivier - this place still runs like a well oiled machine with service being top on all the staff's minds.

    Treat yourself to a massage outside your room.

    Rude and Overpriced

    from

    We were appauled at the rude service at this resort. Our daughter brought our eight year old grandaugher down from Montreal to visit us while we were staying here and they refused to let the child come to our cabin. They said that they do not allow children on the property not even to visit. Needless to say we will never return again.

    Enchanting & Memorable

    from

    My husband and I have stayed at the Lodge three or four times in the past several years. I am a consultant in the hotel industry and work on 5-star properties throughout the world. I have stayed at Peninsula hotels, St. Regis, Ritz Carltons, Mandarin Orientals, etc. There is NO PLACE in the world that I dream about returning to except this inn. It is magical (especially in winter), haunting, cozy, luxurious. The staff are inconspicuous yet completely attentive (an art!). You feel as if the entire place is your private home.If you're looking for snob appeal, don't bother. This is a casual place -- but with every amenity.

    My wedding at the lodge was a day to remember

    from

    We were married at the lodge in November and could not of asked for a more beautiful setting. The staff made our special day completely flawless. When we arrived at the lodge the night before, we were greeted with a chilled bottle of champagne in our room, a fire in our fireplace and warm hospitality by the staff. Both mornings we had breakfast in our rooms and the meal was excellent. I recently received our wedding photos from the photographer, and all I can say is that the lodge is picture perfect.

    Unbelievable!

    from

    We stayed in the Owls' Head Cabin which had a picture-perfect setting.

    The food at the restaurant was as good as anywhere we have eaten. The service of the staff was exemplary. Simply put, we plan on returning for many years to come.

    Most Romantic Place on Earth

    from

    Simply the most romantic place to spend time. From the fantastic food to the smoores at the raoring camp fire, you can't find a more relaxing place. We've stayed every year for the past five years in both rooms and cottages. The service is quiet and always exactly what you need.

    Take the lake tour, sit by the bobcat statue and play cards, watch the sun on the lake ... this place has it all.

    Simply wonderful

    from

    My boyfriend and I visited the Lake Placid Lodge a few autumns ago and had a truly wonderful time. The views from the lodge are beautiful..the leaves were turning when we stayed and we had glorious weather. The rooms are perfect-extremely comfortable beds, spectacular fireplace and large bathrooms with deep soaking tubs. It is so quiet and peaceful there, I wanted to stay for weeks. The staff are friendly and helpful-but not imposing. The restaurant at the lodge was wonderful-particularly the wine list. It is a perfect romantic retreat-we will definitely return!

    Luxury Beside the Lake

    from

    My wife and I splurged and spent five sybaritic days and nights in a lakeside room at the Lake Placid Lodge a few years ago, and we'll never forget it. Some of the highlights: having morning coffee on the porch overlooking the misty lake; being given a complimentary bottle of champagne on our third day; reading and playing cards beside a roaring fire in the parlor; striking up a conversation in the bar with the inn's longtime bartender, a 1932 Olympian; warming ourselves next to a log fire beside the lake; a nightly fire in our room's fireplace; the feather bed; boating on the lake; taking the tram up Whiteface Mountain and riding the bobsled at the Olympic track; and the attentive service and great food in the dining room. Pricey yes, but great value. We recently received a beautiful hardcover book about the Lodge from the owners and intend to return at the earliest opportunity.
