There is more to an overnight stay than electronic keycards, squawking elevators and noisy ice makers. How about fresh air, quiet nights and the kind of pie you read about in great American novels?
The Cambridge Hotel in Cambridge NY harkens back to a time when train whistles blew and lemonade and mint juleps were enjoyed on shady verandas. Seventeen rooms boast all the modern conveniences with the charm and one-of-a-kind elegance of true Victorian style. Add to the comfort, the simple thrill of tasting “pie ala mode” where it was invented.
Another option made for those traveling with boats or bikes, or who simply love the water, is the Lock 12 Marina on the shores of Lake Champlain in Whitehall. Drop anchor and enjoy beautifully appointed rooms overlooking the Lake, drinks in The Black Pearl and made-to-order meals in the on site restaurant, Finch & Chubb. A short drive, by water or land, leads to the memory of a lifetime.
