THE CAPOZZI WEDDING WEEKEND
Here is a bit more information about the wedding. If you just came here to RSVP, scroll to the bottom!
The Adirondack Hotel has filled up, but I believe there will be some rooms opening up in the near future. You can stay in Long Lake at the Lodge, The Shamrock, or look on Airbnb for a place. If you want to rough it, there are camp sites available at Lake Eaton Campground. Accommodations should be made ASAP as this is busy season
- Friday 7PM
Everyone will arrive through out the day. We will all meet at the Adirondack Hotel for drinks and fun that night. The entire hotel is rented out for the wedding - so it should be a good time! The hotel is casual, and feels like a cabin. They serve food if you're hungry, and have a cute little gift shop.
- Saturday 4PM
Spend the day exploring the town, taking a hike, or chillin' lake side. See some of our suggestions below!
Wedding guests will start to arrive to Mt Sabattis Recreation Area around 4 PM. We will have a sign on the road, but the entrance is right next to a set of tennis courts. Drive up the gravel road and follow signs for parking. Ceremony at 4:30 ish. Drinks and lawn games until dinner at 6. The venue is a pavilion that over looks Long Lake. There is gravel, and grass, and dirt but the actual pavilion has a cement floor if you want to wear heels for dinner & dancing. A heads up, the tables are picnic tables. The ceremony will be short and sweet, followed by dinner and dancing. We will have beer & wine & BBQ. There will be outside games and you can hike to the top of the mountain for pictures and a view. (When I say hike, it's a gravel road.)
The dress code can be casual. Linen, floral, white, and tan encouraged. Lets see those Hawaiian shirts.
It may get chilly at night and the reception is outside, if you tend to get cold bring a blanket or a sweater. There will be a fire! We are partying rain or shine.
- Sunday 1 PM
Kickball at Long Lake Field. This is located behind the Long Lake Diner. If we are in too rough shape this is negotiable and may be traded for laying on a dock.
MUST DO's IN THE AREA & ON THE WAY UP
If you're coming during the day, once you head north on 12/28 and start to get into the park, you pass through a few small towns that are fun to stop for a drink or to check out the local shops. If you have time, theres a scenic train ride right before Old Forge that leaves at 3PM. You also must stop at The Donut Shop if you make it up during the day. Best. Donuts. Ever. If it's a rainy day spending time at the Adirondack Museum is a great idea!
While in town, If you want to hike or swim, you can swim at Lake Eaton Campsite, Long Lake has a beach and a dock, and there are many hikes - short and long within a 5 minute drive. If you want any suggestions, Jon is your man to ask! Next to the hotel there is a place to rent kayaks and paddle boards which can be used on Long Lake, or if you take them to Lake Eaton or a near by river.
If you need anything in town, Hoss's Country store is a must stop. Behind Hoss's there is Growl and Grub, where you can grab sandwiches an a beer. There is a grocery store in town across from the Hotel. The only place to buy liquor/wine is Ali Baba's, which is next to the Trading Post on 30. (another cute stop with lunch options). You can buy beer at Hoss's and Stuarts.
If you want to go for a little drive past Long Lake (20 mins), we also love Raquette River Brewing, and Blue Line Brewery. Lake Placid is about 45 minutes from Long Lake, centralized in the high peaks with a great views. Jon and I prefer the smaller towns, though!
