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 four times by Travel + Leisure as one of the world’s best hotels. The praise continues over at Conde Nast Traveler, where for two years in a row the magazine’s readers selected it as a top resort in the Mid-Atlantic.

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 complimentary afternoon tea and cookies. All rooms have big windows with lake and mountain views. The sleeping areas can be closed off from the seating areas to provide privacy -- great for parents who want to enjoy a glass of wine while the kids sleep.

The resort sits on 7 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).

We were very fortunate to have been able to obtain the Travelzoo rate during the peak of leaf peeping season. The room we were assigned was beautiful, with many amenities, including a sitting area looking out onto Mirror Lake.

Gorgeous property with dramatic views of the Lake. We had a fabulous lunch at the lakefront Cottage restaurant, which is one of the Inn’s 3 restaurants. The location of this in. affords an easy walk to town. There are countless relaxing seating areaS on the lobby level of the inn. Each one is beautifully decorated. We will definitely return!

Perfect locations. Unique hotel. Excellent food options. Great pools. Note that the hotel would NOT be a good choice for guests with mobility issues or wheelchairs.

Traveled with our eight year old grandson. We were all very pleased with our room and everything the Inn has to offer. The atmosphere and decor is extremely comfortable. Next time we will stay longer.

We had a very enjoyable and relaxing 3 night stay. The room was comfortable with a beautiful view of the lake. The sitting area was separated with a curtain, so it was the perfect place to read and enjoy the view while someone else slept. The staff was pleasant and the service was great. The flowers around the property were so pretty. The maple sugar body scrub in the spa was wonderful. We enjoyed the live music in the bar area in the evening. The late afternoon coffee/tea and chocolate chip cookies hit the spot. I'm already looking forward to the next time we can stay there.
