Lake Placid, NY (PRWEB) April 14, 2012
Serious foodies and casual connoisseurs alike will come together in Lake Placid April 19-22 for the 7th annual Adirondack Festival of Food and Wine, themed “The Culinary Melting Pot of Taste,” and offering an international flavor to the weekend’s events. Participants heading to Lake Placid for the event are booking privately owned vacation rental homes in Lake Placid through New York Vacation Rentals, to avoid the high cost of hotels and enjoying some extra amenities in the process.
The festival will provide visitors with cooking tips, demonstrations, seminars, guest chef competitions, and much more. Chefs will offer expertise from world-class institutions such as the New England Culinary Institute, Culinary Institute of America and the Research Chefs Association. A master sommelier, brew master, gardener, baker and chef will all be presenting at this year's event.
“An event like this will encourage people to come and spend a long weekend or a week in this area of Lake Placid, where the outdoor recreation opportunities are family friendly and abundant, the local restaurants are fantastic, and the scenery is always beautiful,” Ernst said.

Ernst says that more travelers are looking for lower-cost options to hotel rooms when they visit Lake Placid or any of New York State’s vacation areas. New York vacation rental properties are gaining momentum as travelers juggle rising gas prices and other expenses in tough economic times.

Now that so many people have been renting private vacation properties for short visits in places all across New York State and other areas for years, it’s a trend that never loses its appeal.
“Travelers opt for the convenience and value they find in a privately owned vacation rental condo or house, and they’re not going back to booking hotel rooms.”
