A look at Lake George NY

Last week was our Wedding Anniversary. I surprised the hubby with a weekend away at Lake George NY and he surprised me with a Platinum Pave Eternity band. Oh yeah he's a keeper! The trip was exactly what we needed with all the crazy busy things going on lately. We got to just slow down and relax with each other. This was our 1st trip this far up NY State and we both decided after that wonderful weekend, we will be back (meaning we survived 5 hours in the car together and didn't fight once). The scenery in Lake George was really gorgeous. The leaves were just starting to change so the Adirondack's were sprinkled with red, orange and yellow leaves.
Here are a couple shots from out trip.
The road into Lake George and the Adirondacks.
Lake Luzerne
The hubby in the largest Adirondack Chair. Isn't he cute?

Our self portrait in Lake George
World's Largest Garage Sale in Warrensburg NY. 5 Miles of vendors, food and music  and no we did not walk the full 5 miles. I think one of the vendors said they get almost 90,000 people over the weekend. It was crowded. 
We found this antique gumball machine. Hubby is cleaning it up for me but I am still debating on what to put inside. So many possibilities!
These are some funny things that people were actually selling. I just had to share. 
The Lamplight Inn. I highly recommend this place. It really was a romantic place.
Our room (that's the hubby watching TV) I told him not to lay on that bed until I took a few pictures. He snuck in the sneakers under the vanity. :-)
Yup, a gas fireplace in the room and we used it the whole time we were in the room.
The Main Parlor's and the Game room
This sunroom was right under our room so we woke up every morning to the smell of something being baked and the coffee being brewed. Heaven. They had the most amazing breakfasts each morning. They really go all out here. I wish I had taken a picture when the tables were set for breakfast. Each table had mismatched china along with Fall flowers in mason jars. A Country Elegance feel. 
I hope you enjoyed a brief look into our trip. I really do mean when I say I highly recommend the area.
