What Else To Know

Your Business's Motto?:

Naturally, “it’s our pleasure” and “we are here to serve”! 

One food and drink on earth, what would you choose?:

The way The Sagamore is situated on Green Island on Lake George lends its Indian name for “the great one” just right. We have four wings of the hotel which afford great views of the Adirondack Mountains and Lake George. As a Historic Hotel we believe in stewardship all while ensuring that our guests get to experience this great lake. Or cascading Veranda Terraces, beach front access and sitting areas are designed so our guests truly capture the beauty of the lake and surrounding mountains.

What literature is on your bed stand?:

Aside from various trade magazines, a few John Grisham novels and I am currently reading Exceptional Service, Exceptional Profit by Leonardo Inghilleri and Micah Solomon.

How important is architecture/design to the success of your Business?:
