Lake Placid, NY—Reported by Coleman Bentley for Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
Picture it now: Rolling tree-lined Adirondacks sloping down to the glassy expanse of Lake Placid, reflections bleeding from green to light orange as the summer wanes and you put your feet up. Needless to say upstate New York is one of the world’s most ideal fall-destinations and Golden Arrow Resort recognizes this, celebrating the coming of autumn with their Fall Farm Tour Weekend.
Lake Placid’s only “green” hotel and the only U.S. resort to receive the Audubon Society’s 5 Green Leaf Eco Rating for Hotels, Golden Arrow has long been a proponent of local foods, joining their Generations Restaurant with Chef Hunt’s regional and seasonal menus to champion the Farm-To-Fork movement throughout the High Peaks Region. With their Fall Farm Tour Weekend, however, Golden Arrow has stepped outside their own grounds to offer an idyllic locavore getaway. Guests begin the weekend with a welcome reception before engaging in lively discussions on the history of the area’s food, learning about Community Supported Agriculture organizations, and touring the Edgley Bison, Tucker, and Atlas Hoofed It farms.
While deluxe village-side rooms come with the standard package, offering a quaint and quiet escape from the bustle of New York City and Boston, room upgrades are not only offered but encouraged. So with personally tailored luxury options, autumn atmosphere in the Adirondacks, and some of the freshest ingredients on earth cooking literally minutes away, Golden Arrows Fall Farm Tour Weekend is a can’t miss for fans of food and foliage alike.
