Below is a layout of our private gathering rooms in the Main Lodge. Each can be rented on an individual basis or together as a group.
Big French doors extend the meeting space outdoors to the massive stone patio, where Lake Placid and Whiteface Mountain serve as backdrop, and two large wood-burning fireplaces blaze. The Adirondack Room – 48’ by 26’ – is both grand and airy, a composition of gorgeous stonework, tree trunk columns, hand-built twig furniture and custom-made carpets that mimic the forest floor. State-of-the-art audio/visual equipment is the rule here, including a high definition screen, surround sound with microphone, and high speed internet access. The Adirondack Room can seat up to 70 guests for meals, or 150 in rows for a presentation.
The Baby Bootlegger Room
Named after the gleaming, streamlined wooden boat that won the 1924 and 1925 Gold Cup, the Baby Bootlegger Room is anchored by a stone fireplace at the back wall and a huge outdoor fireplace just outside on the porch. Tall windows look to the lake. The room holds a vintage painting of the famous boat, and the graceful wood frame of a rowboat overhead serves as a chandelier. The Baby Bootlegger Room, at 20’ by 19’, is ideal for small board meetings and private dinners for up to 14 people. A/V equipment is available upon request.
The Wine Cellar
The Wine Cellar is a marvelous, romantic, gothic room of vaulted brick, with vines on the ceiling and rare vintages in abundance in the lighted alcoves. The long table was once the immense front door of a Mexican church; a side table was a cigar-rolling table from Cuba. The Wine Cellar, 28’ by 13’, can be reserved year round for intimate, exquisite dinners, and can accommodate 12 people.
The Lodge Dock makes a fine spot for an Adirondack barbecue, perfect for large gatherings of up to 50 people for dining and 100 for cocktails. Guests can take out the little electric boats for lake tours, or staff can take small groups out on the barge or the Hacker-Craft. The bonfire will be blazing, and the lean-to stocked with pillows and hors-d’oeuvres.
