Fodor's Expert Review Mirror Lake Inn Resort & Spa
77 Mirror Lake Dr., Lake Placid, New York, 12946, USA Fodor's Choice
The complex is on the small, pristine lake that is its namesake, and many get a view of the lake either in their rooms or at the resort's afternoon tea. Most guest rooms here are elegant, with traditional furnishings and large doses of neutral colors. Four-poster beds, fireplaces, private balconies, and couches are available in some rooms. Fodorites say that sitting in the big, cozy chairs next to the fire is heaven, but the resort offers a slew of organized activities, too—sunset cruises, kayak and fishing trips, guided hikes, snowshoe outings, cross-country-skiing lessons, yoga classes—and there's a full-service spa on the property. The Averil Conwell Dining Room earns high marks for its food.
- every room has a view of the lake and/or Adirondacks
- the beach, a draw for children, can get a little noisy sometimes
