All the Details on our New York Cabins!

Hi, friends! I wanted to share this outfit from our New York trip, as this fleece vest is one of the coziest items I’ve worn lately! I think this outfit looks like “mountain chic” if that’s a proper term, haha, but to make it more casual you could pair it with some UGG boots 🙂 Speaking of boots, I also found an amazing dupe for my Marc Fisher hiking boots – these look IDENTICAL, do they not?! I can’t believe they’re less than $60, I want to order them just to test out the quality!

I’ve been getting a lot of questions about the cabins we stayed in, so I wanted to share the details today – I can do a full review of the Adirondacks if you’re interested, however, it wasn’t a “normal” trip for us as we were quarantining the entire time. Obviously we ventured out into nature for photos, but we did not eat at restaurants or “experience” the location as we normally would!

The first location we drove to was this private cabin on Tupper Lake. It’s actually comprised of two small cabins, because there is a bunk house a few feet away with more beds, another bathroom and fireplace. We really loved waking up every morning and looking out over the lake (especially the mornings that were misty!), and there’s a full kitchen with all of the utensils and appliances you could ever need to cook all week long. The heat also works really well! The only downsides is that we experienced a lot of mice while we were there (but apparently the entire area is having a “mice issue” at the moment, haha), and it seemed to be pretty isolated.

Our second destination was one of the private, lakefront cabins at Lake Placid Lodge. We absolutely loved our stay here!! Not only was the cabin really nice (and clean!), but we felt that there was more to do in the area – we drove up to the top of Whiteface Mountain one day, went on small hikes around the resort and went canoeing on Lake Placid. And because the cabin was part of a larger resort, that also meant room service (which is crucial because I am seriously hungry ALL THE TIME due to pregnancy hahah). And the room service was no contact, so they would leave your food right outside of the door and then walk away so you could bring it inside yourself. And, the food was amazing! (Highly recommend the caramelized banana waffles and the pumpkin cheesecake 😉 )

*Just a disclaimer, if you are going to travel anywhere this fall/winter, be sure to check the quarantine rules of the state you will be traveling to! We all took COVID tests before leaving NC (all negative) and had to fill out a bunch of paperwork once arriving into New York. Every state is different and has different rules.

    thank you for adding the covid disclaimer!! <3

    Come back and enjoy the ADK sometime in the summer – there's so much to do and it's so beautiful.

  3. Omg Lake Placid Lodge looks like a literal dream! Bookmarking for later. Thanks for sharing details about where you stayed!

    Still obsessed with your boots!


  4. Glad you enjoyed your time in the ADK!! Thank you for including the COVID disclaimer! If you do a full travel guide, can you keep in mind the Leave No Trace guidelines? The ADK has seen a huge increase in traffic because of COVID, and while we are happy to welcome visitors, the trails are taking a hit, and many, many people who weren’t experienced hikers have needed rescuing. Thanks!!

    We have a tiny family cabin in Maine and were visiting a few weeks ago. Every night at 7:30pm a mouse would scurry out of the bathroom and run under the stove in the kitchen. We’d scream, pull our feet up and wonder why they dogs didn’t even notice it. They are definitely all trying to find a place to stay for the winter!

    You and your mom were cracking me up with your mouse Instagram stories. I was staying in a cabin in NC at the same time and was looking under the bed and listening out for any unwanted visitors. Gotta love nature! ; )

    ‘K, now I just want caramelized banana waffles and pumpkin cheesecake!! You realize I’m living vicariously through these vacay photos, so post away! Love leaf pics – we’re juuuuust starting to change down here in Austin. Everyone’s psyched because it’ll be in the 50s Monday, lol! Cute look!

  10. The cabins at Lake Placid Lodge are our favorite fall getaway! We missed going this year, (cue the boo Covid-19 theme music) going for a boat tour, sitting around the big campfire in the red adirondack chairs, cozying up to the fire in the main lodge, watching hubby start a fire in our cabin, ha!, hiking to the top of Whiteface Mountain, doing the Olympic museum, shopping around town… So much fun! And yes to the breakfast delivered to your cabin!!! SO much good food on the property!

  11. This looks so fun Caitlin! I hope I can also visit NYC soon! Love your outfits, so cute on you!
    Thanks for sharing 🌹

    Did you have to size up for the vest to fit longer over the hips or did you purchase your regular size? I like the look, but it appears shorter on the Nordstrom model than how it looks on you here. Thanks!

    Hope all is well! 🙂 I am new to your blog I found it through Pinterest and so in my free time I have been reading your older posts as well. This may sound weird so I apologize if it does.. but do you know what that nail polish color you have on is? If you don’t no worries, I know it probably has been a while since you’ve uploaded this article!
