Stayed here with my husband for the weekend in early January to recover from the holidays. Beautiful Inn, excellent service and spa. Ideal location with lovely views of the Lake and surrounding mountains. A Splurge getaway, but lovely experience overall.

Our room was in the main building and directly overlooked the lake. Bathroom was cozy but fully stocked and functional. Interesting wooden shower. Room was good sized and bed was very comfortable. Furniture was solid and very reflective of the elegant but rustic feel of lake Placid. We had a sitting area ideal for reading and enjoying a glass of wine. Room had a nice little wet bar and fridge too. Patio was small but would be lovely in warmer weather to sit and enjoy the view.

A spa was very nice and we enjoyed a couples massage and then separate steam and sauna. Very relaxing.

Dining at the hotel can range from casual lake-side dining (The Cottage) to formal dining room in main hotel (The View) as well as the Bistro & Bar. Afternoon tea is also served and happy hour follows in the bar. We dined at both the View and Cottage. The View dinner was OK; my meat was overcooked so disappointing. To note, the atmosphere was really subdued so just keep in mind. The Cottage is very casual and also has an outdoor space with fire pit. Food was creative and tasty. You sit right on the lake so great views. A winner.

We got a deal and didn't pay retail, it's not really worth what they charge. The rooms are old looking with striped wallpaper. I understand they are going for a "lodge" look, but still a bit old. The spa is very nice and modern, the sanctuaries are small but clean. I did a mother to be massage which was pretty regular with a pillow, I wasn't convinced that the girl really knew the prenatal massage. The front desk is very nice and gave us a king instead of a 2 queen that originally came with the deal. Location is great.

We (a couple) spent a romantic long weekend here in January 2012. It was absolutely terrific in every respect - clean rooms, furnishings in good repair, friendly staff, delicious food. Really cannot say overstate the degree to which the Mirror Lake Inn bends over backward to accommodate the guest's every wish. We considered the Lake Placid Lodge and Whiteface Lodge (TA rated nos 2 and 3 of Lake Placid hotels), but opted for MLI based on price, location, and reviews (TA rated no 6). Strongly recommend you do the same; we recommend the Mirror Lake Inn unreservedly.

Room Tip: 3d and 4th floors have view; lower floors may say they do, but it's so obstructed it's not really a view of anything but trees and maybe parking lot.

Mirror Lake Inn is a lovely multi-purpose Inn on Mirror Lake in Lake Placid. Room was excellent w/great view of the lake. Staff friendly and helpful. Had fun skating on the small circle of ice out front. Meal at the top restaurant was good but not great, although the suggested bottle of wine was top notch.

Others may go to this area for the skiing and outdoors, etc, but the reason I return each year is to enjoy the ambience, dining, and activities offered by the Mirror Lake Inn.

Our first family getaway to the Inn was in 2010 and we returned again in 2011. We booked side-by-side rooms (each with a balcony) facing the lake. The rooms were clean, quiet and spacious - with good intranet access (a must for my 3 teenagers).

The rooms were only steps away from the main building which I would describe as an "elegant lodge" -- dark wood, high ceilings, comfortable seating areas, and a relaxed atmosphere. My favourite room there was the "library". In the early morning, it was a great place to go to curl up on one of the couches in front of the fire with a coffee and read the newspapers. At night, we often borrowed board games from the front desk after dinner and played them at one of the library tables.

During the days, we took advantage of the boats (kayaks, canoes) available for guests to use and paddled around the lake. Our youngest daughter enjoyed the scavenger hunt (surprisingly good prizes) and the swimming pool. The chocolate chip cookies available all day long at the front desk were a hit with everyone. And everyone was happy to spend a couple of hours strolling and browsing along the main street with its shops and ice cream stores.

The sunrise yoga and sunset kayak trip booked through the hotel were good. (Other than a hot rock massage, we haven't spent very much time at the Spa.)

I had expected on both trips to dine more in the village, but the Inn's restaurants were so good that we ate most of our meals there. Breakfast was included with our room package and it was excellent - generous portions and a good selection. We enjoyed being able to eat lunch at the casual "Cottage" restaurant at a table overlooking the lake before heading off into town. And dinner at the Inn itself was a foodie's delight with great service and a comfortable, relaxing atmosphere. For the dining alone, I would return!

Looking forward to returning for our annual getaway in Summer 2012!

Thank you for being such loyal guests for your family getaway! I am glad that you enjoyed the views, your guest room, activities and dining! While Lake Placid has a lot to offer, it’s such a compliment and nice to see that you can do many activities right here with the convenience of not having to leave the property! We look forward to your return this summer!
