Mirror Lake Inn Resort & Spa, on Mirror Lake Drive, dominates the northern corner of pristine Mirror Lake, the centerpiece of Lake Placid village, in New York State’s 6-million-acre Adirondack Park. The white, colonial-style façade of the 131-room hotel sits on a hill overlooking the lake, allowing exceptional views of water and the High Peaks — the region’s highest mountains — from guest rooms. The resort is just a walk away from the Olympic village’s Main Street, where all manner of shops and eateries, and even a summer concert series, can be found. Whiteface Mountain, one of the most popular ski centers in the east, is a short drive away; nearby are Olympic venues that include the 90- and 120-meter ski jumps, bobsled run and Miracle On Ice hockey arena, plus hiking trailheads, cross-country-ski routes and plenty of ponds, lakes and rivers to fish and paddle.
