Loved my stay and will definitely return. From Covid safety procedures to old fashioned elegant service, it was a memorable vacation. I have stayed at many inns at Lake Placid over the years but this one has to be the best. The rooms were comfortable with stunning views. The location was close to everything. The staff was attentive and friendly. And you must dine at The View for a memorable dinner.

Hotel's Favourite
First trip to the Adirondacks and delighted with the Mirror Lake Inn. Concerns regarding pandemic precautions were top of mind and the management and staff had everything well in hand. Mask wearing compliance was 100%, social distancing was evident, hand sanitizer dispensers were located throughout. Breakfast was available for self pick-up or room delivery and was well managed. The restaurant was open for dinner: temperature monitoring, hand sanitizers, personalized menus, staff in full face shields all made for a relaxed experience and opportunity to enjoy the excellent cuisine and wine. Our room was modern and well equipped and the suspension of daily housekeeping was not a problem as additional towels, toiletries, etc., were swiftly available on request. Overall a great experience and setting the standard for safe travel during these challenging times. We will definitely return.

We love Lake placid + this hotel is a big reason why. The views are fantastic + we loved having a cocktail in front of a roaring fire after a delicious dinner overlooking Mirror Lake. The grounds are so close to town + make a quick weekend feel not as rushed. The view from our room with a morning cup of coffee was the icing on the cake! We will be back

Our 20 person family loved the setting for a weeklong reunion. Great location right on the edge of the lake, easy 5 min walk to downtown restaurants and shops. Private beach with floating swim docks, free kayaks and paddle boards. Grounds are immaculate, flowers everywhere. Room options include main hotel (across the street from the lake) and Colonial House and Lake house, right on the lake. Excellent service -- except some reluctance for room cleaning - understandable in COVID era but seems odd to make your own bed in a 4 diamond hotel. Hotel can help arrange other activities like golf (beautiful Whiteface course), fly fishing, wilderness canoeing, etc.
