By car: It's about a five hour drive from NYC and about the same from Boston.
By plane: Another way to get there by plan is to take a flight to Burlington, VT or Albany, NY then renting a car and driving. It's a 2 hour drive from Burlington and 2 1/2 hour drive from Albany to get to Lake Placid.
By plane: There are direct flights from Boston to Saranac Lake Airport (assuming you can find your way to Boston). From there, it's a 20 minute ride in one of our shuttles to the Lodge. For those of you who want a shorter trip, we've reserved a private jet from Teterboro Airport in NJ. More details can be found in the Travel section. Please RSVP for the jet by May 15th.
Are pets allowed?
Yes, although you might be required to keep them on a leash if they don't cut out that roughhousing.
Are kids allowed?
Yup, although you might be required to keep them on a leash if they don't cut out that roughhousing.

How do I RSVP for the excursions?
You can do so on the main RSVP tab. Please let us know which excursions you plan on participating in by July 15th. Keep in mind you can always go back and update/edit your RSVP. The old info will be replaced by your new info and we'll receive an email notification.
How do I book a room?
No need... it's all set.
What do I need to bring?
We've got you covered for most of the big stuff but here are some things to keep in mind.
It might get a little chilly at night by the fire
You might be doing some outdoorsy adventuring
You will probably get wet at some point whether you want to or not
Town is really close in case you forget anything
Maybe a yoga mat just in case
Something nice for the wedding day
What‘s the dress code?
Try to wear pants when children are present. Other than that, just something swanky for the wedding day. Cocktail attire.
Where can I get all dolled up for the wedding?
Although you're beautiful just the way you are, check out the local salons and such on the Discover page.
Is there wifi?
Yes, there's wifi but (intentionally) no tv's. That's what campfires are for.
What's this I hear about a talent show... do I really need to do anything?
If you're okay with ruining our wedding, then no. If you happen to have a soul, here are some examples that qualify as "talent":
What kind of things can you do in Lake Placid?
If your itinerary feels light, check out the Discover page to learn more about what the area has to offer.
How can I get around Lake Placid?
The Lodge has a few cars at our disposal as well as a fleet of bicycles to cruise around. We also have shuttles available on Friday and Saturday to cover all of the excursions as well as any general local transporting.
Can I have meals off property?
Sure, you can eat a PB&J in the woods for all we care. But seriously, the Lodge is set to provide food pretty much around the clock. If you do want to venture out, there's list of great local spots on the Discover page.
Are there vegetarian options?
For sure, but we've specifically asked that they not taste very good.
I'm not planning on falling off the ski pyramid, but if I do, what's the water temperature gonna be like?
It'll be late August, so the water will be at about its warmest. Should be in the 70's.
What level of yoga experience do I need?
Better than Gregg. All levels are welcome, there will be modifications if needed.
