With spring in the air, it’s hard to ignore the travel bug biting at our ankles to ditch the city for a little getaway. Lucky for you, we know just the escape!
Mirror Lake Inn, in Lake Placid, NY (just five hours from the city) is the perfect romantic weekend away. The family-owned inn has been serving up hospitality in the Hudson Valley since 1924.
Fun fact: Lake Mirror Inn was actually home to the first skating camp in Lake Placid that went on to host skating legends like Toller Cranston, Tab Hunter, Dorothy Ann Nelson, Pieter Kollen. Plus, the Olympic legacy of Lake Placid can be explored just steps from the Mirror Lake Inn property.
The property takes over expansive grounds full of gardens that lead up to the lakefront where guests are invited to “enjoy the pristine wilderness of upstate New York.”
Not only does it house beautiful grounds and gardens, but there’s award-winning dining options, a relaxing spa, a 60-foot indoor lap pool, a private beach, yoga classes and more.
Guest are invited to stay in one of their luxurious suites, classic rooms, or family-style floor plans. Inside the suites, visitors are privy to a breathtaking view of Mirror Lake and the Adirondack High Peaks. The classic rooms don’t lack in views either, with options for various backdrops from the 1st to 4th floor of the inn. However, if you’re traveling with a large group, their family rooms have all the space you could need to fit the whole gang.
And if you want to get really romantic, you can book the couples getaway package that includes your room (with sweeping lake views), a candlelit dinner and a spa service.
If you’re looking for some proper R&R during your stay, an appointment at their award-winning Lake Placid Spa is a must-do. The spa & salon offers a variety of indulgent, wellness services ranging from your typical massages and facials to a Dry Float European Soft Pack (skin-softening therapy) and Salt Room (art halo therapy treatment).
For culinary experiences, Lake Mirror Inn boasts an impressive choice between two fabulous restaurants. Both menus are seasonal, using the freshest local ingredients.
The View Restaurant is an AAA Four Diamond rated restaurant for those looking for a more high-end dining choice. If you prefer something more casual without sacrificing quality and taste, check out The Cottage Restaurant instead. There, hungry guests can cozy into comfort food that’s sure to satisfy.
