The number of accolades Mirror Lake Inn has raked in over the last few years is enviable. It's earned the AAA 4-Diamond award for over 30 years, and it has been selected by Travel + Leisure as one of the world’s best hotels four times. The praise continues over at Conde Nast Traveler, where for two years in a row the magazine’s readers selected it as the top resort in the Northeast.

What’s all the fuss about? Let’s start with the location, on the shores of a mirror-calm lake in upstate New York’s beautiful Adirondacks. In the winter, nearby Whiteface Mountain is one of the Northeast’s most popular ski slopes, surely playing a part in getting the 1980 Winter Olympics to come to Lake Placid -- today the sports complex offers skiing, bobsledding and more. In summer, the resort has a private beach, boats and kayaks.

The resort welcomes guests with lobby fireplaces and free afternoon tea and cookies. Many rooms have traditional touches like four-poster beds, chandeliers and beamed ceilings, and all have big windows with lake and mountain views. The upgraded Lookout rooms are 415 square feet -- more space than some apartments -- and have sitting areas that can be closed off from the bed area, as well as wall-to-wall glass that includes French doors opening to fresh mountain air.

The resort sits on seven wooded acres but is only one block from Lake Placid’s Main Street, with wine-tasting rooms, restaurants and outdoor adventure outfitters. The resort also has three restaurants, which "plate the best food in the Adirondacks" (Conde Nast Traveler).

From the press:
  • “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” -- Fodor’s
  • "Mirror Lake wrote the book on customer service. They welcome you back with open arms and treat you like family" -- Conde Nast Traveler
