Hi All, I'm not on the ADK forum, so I'm hoping someone can help me here. I planned a hiking trip to Algonquin / Avalanche lake a couple weeks ago with my wife. She got sick, so I did it with a buddy. It was amazing. 11.5 miles in 7 1/2 hours. I want to get my wife out there, and was thinking Bald mountain, Rocky Mountain, and Black Bear mountain in the Old Forge area would be good for her. I'm having a hard time finding hotels close by. I would prefer the standard chain hotel over a lodge type place. I have driven many hours only to end up in a musty, old lodge. I don't mind it so much, but my wife is a totally different story. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
