Looking to take a vacation finally this summer. There are a couple three ways to get where we are going. One way is to stop in at my in-laws in Albany but I am tempted to avoid the thruway and take the north country route. 
Anyone in that area know of a good lunch spot? Depending when we leave we could be near Malone, Chateaugay, Champlain or Swanton around lunch time.
Also, anyone know anything about the area around Lake Eden? We will be cooking (hopefully some fish) but may venture out for dinner or breakfast one day.
