Lake Placid Lodge
Local Experience

There's no chance of cabin fever at this luxurious Arts and Crafts-style lodge, where every detail has been carefully executed to meld seamlessly with the surroundings—down to the locally crafted furnishings and outdoor railings made of branches. Even more clear here is the lodge's outdoorsy, sporty connection to its destination (the village has played host to the Olympics twice), with a slew of offerings including fly fishing and canoeing in summer and downhill skiing at Whiteface Mountain in winter. Guests can also soak up history at nearby museums, indulge in a seven-course tasting menu at the resort's New American restaurant Artisans, or tool around the lake aboard the property's sleek, vintage mahogany Hacker-Craft.
