Where to stay and eat off of 87.

We're traveling up 87 to stop at a relative's, then on to Montreal.
We'll be staying a night in NY. Do you know of any good places to stay that also have good dinner/breakfast?

    I'd recommend Schroon Lake...several chow-worthy places, including Pitkin's (great ribs, banana cream pie, good breakfast), the Timber Wolf (amazing wings, fun atmosphere), and plenty of B&B's to get an early start. Montreal is about 2 - 2 1/2 hours away!

      From a mileage perspective about where do you want to stay?

        Hi Swarttav....due to the time element, probably not more than 10-20 miles off-highway

        Friends Lake Inn.

        Dinner w/ award-winning wine list, and breakfast too.

        Let us know what you do!

          Fairfield and NYchow--thank you. Breakfast and banana cream pie are too of my favorite hobbies. I have homework to do now. Thanks!

            I would suggest staying in Saratoga Springs. Exits 13-15 off of I-87 (I think about 180 miles south of Montreal). You can get a great dinner at Chez Sophie Bistro and breakfast at the County Corner Cafe. Both restaurants are in the middle of town, which is worth exploring.

              Chez Sophie is expensive, but a wonderful meal will be had...a great wine & beer list, too. I love Saratoga Springs...walk around. Chez Sophie now that it is in the Saratoga Hotel also serves breakfast....but I am sure that the breakfast restaurant that's on west side of broadway just North of the top of Caroline St is good and is way cheaper!
