Enjoying incredible meals together is a key component to all romantic Adirondacks getaways, and we’ll treat you to delicious options from morning until night at our Upstate New York Hotel.

All guests are encouraged to reserve a table between 8 and 9 am in the Birch Bistro, and you’ll have a splendid selection of sweet and savory options.

After you’ve returned from your adventures, you’ll have your choice from casual dining at the Birch Bistro or a more refined dining setting in the Main Dining Room. The latter is the go-to choice for those on romantic Adirondacks getaways! The elegant setting in the dining room is the perfect atmosphere for a quiet dinner for two. You’ll cozy up at your table with lovely settings; you can dine fireside or be surrounded by a decades-old mural in our historic space.

The menu changes with the seasons for an authentic farm-to-fork experience. Start with a steaming bowl of mussels and pomme frites, enjoy a fresh, crisp salad, and move on to main entrees, including dishes like fillet mignon and Hudson Valley duck breast or the fresh catch of the day. All of these entrees are prepared with the utmost care and attention to flavors and culinary trends.
