With German and Polish immigrants, you know this is a natural. But it is more than that. It is 130 worth of Old World Pioneers that built the Lodge in 1886 as a trading post, post office and stage coach inn. It is about continuing Old World traditions of bone broth soups, slow roasting and of course delectable torts and strudels.
It is also about the "Adirondack Alps" as we call our restaurant born from European settlers in the Adirondack region whose experience helped Lake Placid host the 3rd Winter Olympic Games in 1932. The Lodge is located in New York State's only wilderness canoe region a 4 season destination of outdoor and indoor fun!
This experience continues with 3 generations of Hohmeyer family celebrating 50 years in 2016!
Relive Old World traditions with an Adirondack flair. Adirondack grass-fed stroganoffs, sauerbraten, roulade are fused with Lodge garden strudels, cucumber salad, Marzipan and chocolate canoes! Relax in the Fireside Rathskeller with the Adirondacks only hand-crafted Wine & Beer Cellar with the Park's largest selection of craft import beers. Savor the Ein Stein Pub or a Heritage Dinner.
Do all of this with seasonal activities like lantern-lit sleigh rides, unique Rail Explorers Rail Bikes, paddling or x-country skiing on our nature trails. Take in a cooking demo or culinary weekend from Chef Cathy Hohmeyer's Old World Kitchen or a History of Beer Workshop.
Or simply do nothing and relax in your secluded chalet with roaring fire or lake-view suite with bubbling Jacuzzi.
Es ist sehr gemutlich und authentisch!
