The Point at Lake Saranac is the ultimate romantic getaway from New York City

Autumnal Getaways from New York

With summer winding up and autumn on the horizon, now is the time to be forward planning for the ultimate romantic weekend away with the person you love. Whether the sun is shining, it’s pelting with rain, or the leaves are turning, there’s nothing cosier and warming than somewhere sensational to hide away for a couple of days that doesn’t involve the airport.

Here are some of my favourites on the other side of the pond but you’ll need to think about booking soon to secure your romantic adventure.


In just 60 to 90 minutes from Manhattan, you could find yourselves sitting in front of your bedroom fireplace or on the terrace at Richard Gere’s place “The Bedford Post Inn”.

It’s small but perfectly formed, and dinner reservations at the legendary La Crémaillère nearby are a must, as is dressing in a jacket for the occasion. Read all about it in the September issue of Vanity Fair.

Lake Saranac

The Adirondacks and specifically the ‘The Point’ on Lake Saranac, is a trip back to the luxury of a bygone era. Formerly the summer camp of William Avery Rockefeller, you and your love will float on its remote luxury ambience. It takes a little more effort to get there, but so worth it for the big stone fireplaces and a big dash of upper-class Americana; it could be the set for a Ralph Lauren photo shoot. Push the boat out quite literally and book the 33-foot Mahogany Hackercraft for a cruise around the lake.


Hudson, New York is just getting more and more stylish in a West Village meets Brooklyn kind of way by the minute. Curating your visit means booking somewhere cool to spend your nights and you can’t go past Wm Farmer & Sons for nailing what the vibe is all about. You don’t even have to go anywhere to eat and drink other than downstairs. If you’re going to venture out to dinner, reservations at Fish & Game are a must where the chef has won best in the Northeast.
