Lake Placid Lodge

A historic lakeside lodge
The charming Lake Placid Lodge, situated on the edge of Lake Placid in the heart of the Adirondacks, was rebuilt after a 2005 fire destroyed the original lodge. Its arts and craft style remains true to the original spirit of the lodge.

Far from the film with the man-eating alligator prowling the peaceful water, Lake Placid Lodge is exactly what its name implies: a tranquil getaway. With a past filled with Native Americans, Gilded Age millionaires and Olympians, Lake Placid Lodge is still living up to its glory.

The interior is a luxurious take on rustic Americana, with warm colors and traditional furnishings dressed up with plaids and animal prints. The lodge features two restaurants: a casual pub where you can sip a hot toddy while playing a game of chess, and an upscale dining room, Artisans, which serves takes on fresh, organic American cuisine.
Things to Know
  • Maggie’s Pub is quite a hit with guests if there’s a football, hockey or lacrosse game on television. (If you didn’t already know, Lake Placid is chock full of hockey and lacrosse junkies.)
  • Serving up creative drinks from “Maggie’s Drink Bowl,” you can sip on a homemade cocktail and nibble on the gourmet pub snacks.
  • Whether you opt for the harvest moon or the Indian summer, you’ll be more than happy as you cozy up next to the fireplace or challenge a fellow guest to a friendly game of billiards.
The Restaurants
  • With its high windows and stellar porches, Artisans is truly a Lake Placid restaurant. Serving up a tasting menu as well as à la carte options, this beautiful restaurant hones in on the farm-to-table concept.
    As it is based on seasonal ingredients, you can expect the menu at Artisans to change with the leaves of the Adirondacks.
  • For a casual dining venue, head to Maggie’s Pub. With the only TV on the property, you can catch the game or challenge a fellow guest to a friendly game of pool.
  • The menu has your typical pub fare, but adds a gourmet and creative twist. Nosh on items such as mushroom risotto fritters or mac and cheese with homemade bacon lardon, truffle oil and English peas.
