This fall, you’ll likely be taking a fall getaway.

But with the smartphone vibrating dutifully and TV streaming oh-so-conveniently on the iPad, the question becomes:

What the hell are you actually getting away from?

The answer: not enough.

Change that with Lake Placid Lodge’s “Check In to Check Out” package, in which you check your e-gadgets at the door.

The deal’s simple: you arrive at the lodge, a Valhallan villa on Lake Placid’s forested shores – the only lodge on Lake Placid’s forested shores, in fact.

At check-in, you’ll surrender your mechanized tethers, which’ll be safely sequestered for the duration of your stay.

And suddenly … you’re free.

With no screen to stare at, your plush new Adirondack digs become pleasantly attention-grabbing – go for one of LPL’s private fire-lit cabins, decked out with massive log beds beside crackling stone hearths, soaking tubs with views of the lake and nary a television to be seen.

Take LPL’s handsome teak motorboat out on the lake. Do some yoga. Ride a horse. Come sundown, ensconce yourself in front of the fire and enjoy the provided New York Times bestseller.

And revel in the fact that you’ve made a clean getaway.
