Mirror Lake Inn Resort & Spa was founded in 1926 by the couple Climena Alford, a native of Lake Placid, and her husband, William Rufus Wikoff of Massachusetts.
In no time they transformed an old estate into one of the most-high quality resorts in the US. Their reputation spread everywhere and attracted wealthy guest from all over the State, and specially from NYC.
The Inn was always involved in sports events, hosting entire teams and also sport-related innovation like the first electric rope-tow, the first snow making machine and the first bobsled run!
They are also famous for the amazing food, made with locally source fresh ingredients!
They offer 3 dining options: The View - Lake Placid’s only AAA Four-Diamond “Exceptional” rated restaurant, Taste Bistro & Bar - serving a casual dinner and cocktails; and The Cottage - a great hangout spot year-round and named one of the top Après Ski spots in North America by the readers of Ski Magazine!
They have a great SPA and classically decorated, comfortable rooms!!!
It's a 4-5h trip from NYC, but definitely worth it!!! They were already featured by publications like @cntraveler, so do check them out!
