Lake George Dining at The Sagamore Resort

​Look no further… this is our absolute favorite summertime place to have cocktails and dinner, and we always arrive precisely at 5:00 pm to get the best table on the veranda—the views of Lake George and the Adirondacks are beyond spectacular!

This early al fresco dinner on the deck at The Sagamore is always spectacular and was continually repeated last year! A nice breeze off the water made for a very comfortable outdoor dining experience. Make sure to ask for Calvin, our server was gracious, elegant and charmingly funny.

Many of our guests have enjoyed the same extraordinary dining experience at the Sagamore! And, I almost forgot; the lobster ravioli was probably the best I’ve ever had… This landmark hotel & resort with a prestigious history that dates back to the 1880s is secluded on a private 70-acre island just over an hour from Pond Mountain Inn. Along with an inspiring setting in the heart of the Adirondacks, the award-winning dining is alone worth the drive!

Another Fun Day in Vermont

Just a 30 minute drive from Pond Mountain Inn, this General Store sign in Benson, Vermont just makes us laugh each time we drive past… so we finally stopped to snap a quick photo. Not quite a Norman Rockwell painting nor is on any country store A-list, but it exemplifies Vermont life and the village culture that not only exists today, but still thrives in many of the 251 towns and villages.

We Love This Little Slice Of Vermont Life – Featured in Yankee Magazine – Poorhouse Pies In Underhill, Vermont

Last year Kay and I along with a guest drove two hours from Pond Mountain Inn to serve ourselves at this tiny pie shed, Poorhouse Pies in Underhill, Vermont! But we wanted more, after all they were featured in Yankee Magazine. We walked fifty feet hoping to meet the owners and to see where the pies were made. In the side door of a tiny yellow farmhouse we entered a correspondingly tiny commercial kitchen that was barely enough space to accommodate the owners. Paula and Jamie told us that on holiday weekends they make about 120 pies and always sell out. The three of us bought 6-7 pies and had a pie tasting a few days later! We loved this little slice of Vermont life!
