For more than 150 years, The Wells House's serene and historic structure has acted as holiday haven and roamer refuge deep within the verdant northern Adirondacks. A variety of distinctive guest rooms and suites provide a mélange of adornment and atmosphere, with each room including a memory-foam mattress, complimentary WiFi, and a live teddy bear. Sleepy cerebellums in need of something soft are privy to a multitude of opulent décor options like the Toile Room, with black-and-white French furnishings complementing an antique claw-foot tub in its scarlet-walled bath, and the Burgundy Room, in which rustic quilt-draped poster beds lie side by side, softly debating thread-count politics deep into the night.

When he cofounded his first sandwich shop in 1965, 17-year-old Fred DeLuca planned to use his profits to pay his way through medical school. But the combination of quality ingredients and friendly service at the shop—then called Pete's Subway—proved so popular that nine years later, he and his partner found themselves in charge of 16 locations across Connecticut, and Fred left behind his doctoring plans for a career in business.
Today, Subway restaurants number over 34,000 around the world—almost as many shops as there are sightings of Elvis buying cold cuts. At each location, staffers pile sliced ham, marinara-slathered meatballs, and other fillings into halved loaves of bread before customizing handhelds with tomatoes, shredded lettuce, and other healthy toppings plucked from chilled containers behind the counter. Salads free crisp veggies from bread's overprotective embrace, and crunchy baked chips or apple slices accompany entrees to tables. Subway's website also facilitates health-conscious eating by listing each item's nutrition information and fastest mile time online.
The Oliva family is most passionate about three things: great wine, great food, and great company, preferably all at the same time. Over time, these activities inspired Tony Oliva and his wife Debreen to begin making wine. Together they have traveled extensively to Tuscany and Napa Valley, studying the unique winemaking methods of each region. Armed with the knowledge to turn grapes into nectar, Oliva Vineyards now produces five vintages, including sparkling reds, ros?s, and blends.
The Oliva Vineyards tasting room welcomes guests to taste wines at their bar, which was built by Tony himself from wood procured at a local sawmill.
