Wings Air Partners with Lake Placid Lodge to Bring Helicopter Service to Guests
We are proud to announce that starting in February 2016 we’re partnering with Lake Placid Lodge to offer guests luxury helicopter transportation to/from New York City and other locations in the Northeast. Lake Placid is the jewel of the Adirondacks, clear, cold and strewn with leafy islands; Lake Placid Lodge stands upon its emerald shore. A majestic hotel, built by hand in the Arts and Crafts tradition, is perfectly at home in its lakeside setting. There are 30 guest rooms at Lake Placid Lodge: 5 in the Main Lodge, 17 cabins on the shore of the lake, 6 suites in the Lakeside Building, and 2 cottages, Pine and Birch, overlooking the lake, just steps from the Main Lodge. Each is spacious, luxurious and imaginative; rich and romantic with soft fabrics, polished wood, stone fireplaces, stacks of logs, a hand-built, cloud-soft bed and wilderness through its windows. Each is private, supremely comfortable and entirely individual; no two are the same. Lake Placid Lodge is a proud member of Relais & Chateaux, a collection of the finest hotels from 55 countries around the globe.
For those looking to minimize the stress of travel, our state-of-the-art helicopters can fly the 290-mile, normally 5-hour trip between Manhattan and picturesque Lake Placid in just 2 hours. Helicopters can carry 2-5 passengers and are equipped with various in-flight comforts from noise-cancelling BOSE headsets to magazines for the passengers’ enjoyment. Upon arrival at Lake Placid Airport, guests are transported in style to Lake Placid Lodge in the hotel’s own SUV. A complimentary glass of champagne is offered at check-in to begin an unforgettable and relaxing stay at the only hotel on Lake Placid. The Lodge’s luxurious accommodations include 13 guest rooms and 17 cabins that sit at the water’s edge and feature wide stone porches, wood-burning fireplaces and breathtaking views of the Adirondacks.
For guests flying in by helicopter, a special afternoon indulgence treat is prepared daily by the lodge’s culinary team along with a special turn down Nightime Nibble. A gourmet Lodge breakfast is included in-suite or at the beautiful Artisans dining room. Helicopter service is available 7 days a week upon request, starting at $3,100 for 2 people roundtrip (excluding room).
