Bolton Landing, N.Y. — An iconic resort on an Adirondacks island has been deemed one of the best resorts in the nation.
sagamore/”The Sagamore Resort was voted the third-best destination resort in the United States in a contest by USA Today’s 10Best. The luxurious Sagamore — a historic hotel in Bolton Landing that dates back to the late 1800s — is housed on a private island on Lake George and includes a golf course, a spa, an indoor rec center and plenty of waterside fun.
The resort made the list alongside the Acqualina Resort & Residences on the Beach in sunny Florida and The Broadmoor in mountainous Colorado.
10Best editors worked with a panel of experts to come up with an initial list of 20 lauded resorts. The 10 final winners were then picked by voters.
The Sagamore Resort, a Queen Anne-style hotel housed on the private, 70-acre Green Island, opened in 1883. President Richard Nixon is among its roster of historic guests, according to Historic Hotels of America.
The resort’s location and its panoply of amenities — including its eight restaurants — are what make it such an exemplary destination for a vacation, 10Best noted.
“Experience the unmatched beauty of the Adirondacks at the Sagamore Resort on Lake George’s landmark hotel,” 10Best wrote. “This year-round New York resort is ideal for family members of all ages.”
