Looking for a resort...

My husband and I are looking for a place to go away for a week or so. In the Finger Lakes or Adirondacks.

We are thinking of a resort, with a pool, and no need to do much. We'd like to be able to eat on the premises, have a glass of wine, but also be able to walk/drive to other places.

And $150 or so is ideal per night.

Any hope or advice?

We're 30, no kids. We don't mind them, but if we'd prefer being able to swim instead of things overrun with kids.

When are you going? Have you been tot eh Adirondacks before? They don't really have a good selection of resorts LOL. Lots of people like Mirror Lake Inn in Lake Placid though...The only other two that come to mind are the Sagamore and The Point. I wouldn't personally recommend either one though.

None of the places that liwl mentions have rates anywhere near $150 per night. The Point is over $1000 per night (all inclusive, of course )

When are you planning your trip? For much of the summer (and fall weekends) $150 per night will barely get a simple hotel room let alone anything vaguely resortlike...

We are going in late August... haven't been on vacation since our honeymoon years ago. Can't believe how much prices went up! Ah the economy...

No hope?

That area has few resosrts - most is given over to the more camping, cabin and relaxing family crowd. And the few "resorts" - such as the Sagamore - which is primarily adult - but on an island in Lake George has rates several multiples of that.

In high season $150 will barely get you a small room at a mom and pop motel.
