Resort News
We have two great hikes heading out today! First our Naturalist, Matt, will lead you on a hike up Buck Mountain in the morning! You’ll easily manage this easy to moderate hike and enjoy the magnificent views form the top of the Champlain Valley and the Adirondacks! Or head out in the afternoon for a hike up Snake Mountain. This is a slightly more challenging hike, with the difficulty being mostly moderate with some strenuous sections. But the 180 view of the Champlain Valley from the top is absolutely worth the climb!

We’ve arranged to have a second Floral Arranging class today, due to the popularity of our fabulous florist, Claire! Swing by the Concierge desk to see if there are still spots available.

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to get a Family Portrait done while you are here in this beautiful setting! Our photographer extraordinaire, Anne-Marie, will be here to host a Family Portrait Special this morning. Sign up with the Concierge for your time slot or for more information about a private session with Anne-Marie!

Show off your amazing talents tomorrow at the Talent Show! The actual show will take place in the Club Room tomorrow night. But don’t worry you’ll have time to practice earlier in the afternoon. There will be a Talent Show Practice time tomorrow afternoon in the Club Room!

Set sail on the Cocktail Cruise this afternoon for some sipping and sightseeing! Let our trusty Captain give you a tour of our bit of Lake while our drink master mixes you some delicious refreshment. Space is limited so make sure you sign up with the Concierge!
