Mirror Lake Inn, located on eight acres in the quiet residential area of Lake Placid, was a famous resort even before the Winter Olympics came to town in 1932. The 1980 Winter Olympics increased the area's wintertime recreational opportunities, which now include skating rinks, cross-country skiing, downhill skiing nine miles from the Inn (at Whiteface Mountain), bobsledding, dogsledding, and snowmobiling.
Situated on the shores of Mirror Lake, the Inn offers a private beach and summertime recreation as well. Its health spa and swimming facilities are open year-round.
The Inn's ambiance is one of Victorian rustic elegance. Its lobby and public areas feature panelling, stone fireplaces, chandeliers, and antiques. Afternoon tea is served in the living room.
Guest rooms are well-appointed in classic traditional style. Most have mountain or lake views with private terraces. Suites feature king-size beds and double Jacuzzi tubs with showers.
Breakfast and dinner are served in the Averil Conwell Dining Room, a romantic spot overlooking Mirror Lake and the High Peaks, named for the artist who executed its oil paintings of Lake Placid at the turn of the century. The dining room's Adirondack flapjacks with hot maple syrup are a famous breakfast item, and the Adirondack mixed grill is popular in the evening.
The Cottage Cafe, known as the skiers' meeting place, serves lunch and stays open until the wee hours.
The Mirror Lake Inn offers full conference facilities. For a vacation or conference in a modern resort that values tradition and service, this is the place.
