Had a great weekend at the Mirror Lake Inn! Unique Adirondack feel, clean room with cozy fireplace, unbelievable view of Mirror Lake with mountains in the distance, delicious food, and several Covid-19 safety protocols in place to make us feel safe. Strongly recommend to anyone looking to get away for a nice enjoyable relaxing weekend!
One of the best Spa and Resort hotels that I've ever been too. During this time of Covid they took many precautions and were very safe and kind. I hope to return again very soon.

Nice lake view. I want to congratulate the staff. When we arrived at the parking lot, a young man was waiting for us to help us with our luggage, he was very friendly and attentive. My daughter was doing an important college calculus homework and she couldn't find answers; she was very worried. As the young man helped us unload our luggage, he commented that she was using a wrong formula and had symbol errors. My daughter, a little surprised, approached him, showed him her notes and he was able to help her, he was very courteous and fast. My daughter got 10 and she is very happy, that is why I decided to take the time to congratulate Mirror Lake Inn, their staff is fantastic, they are fully prepared against covid, I will be back soon.
Beautiful facility. Not kid-friendly. Many signs and notices posted about childrens' appropriate behavior. The owners should just make it adults only to solve whatever issues they've had.
Expensive but very nice. Staff was always around and very helpful and courteous. Beautiful view of the lake

Very very prepared for covid. They did a great job at the restaurant and hotel to make it a safe place. Great food.
If you want some place to just got and relax, this is certainly the place to go. You don't feel bad when you spend a couple of hours just sitting in a comfortable chair in your room looking out over there lake. The pool and hot tub area is another great place to relax. They really know how to keep it clean there is not an overwhelming smell of chlorine like you get at many hotel pools. The decorations in the hallways were great. Don't miss the cookies. Obviously making restaurant reservations here is a bit challenging at this time (late October of 2020) with hotel guests only. Early in the week they were booked for Saturday night and we got the same response when we checked on Saturday morning. However just before noon on Saturday we got a call with an opening. We were a bit surprised that it wasn't just one time slot, but rather four or five. We were going to take one slot and call back if we couldn't make it (we were waiting to hear back from another restaurant). However we were told that if we made the reservation and cancelled, our room would get something like a $50 cancellation fee. Overall, we had a fantastic time at a really great place.
Great swimming pool when it is snowing outside. Very close to a few restaurants and to lake Placid.
Beautiful full moon on Mirror Lake, 10/31/20.
Great view from the 4th floor. We also really liked the large hot tub. The room was spacious and the sun porch was wonderful. The beds are worn out, though. They are very saggy. The decor could stand to be updated, especially as the cost of this room is $400 a night.
Great ambience even during Covid times. Excellent service, good food and drink options and beautiful setting even in the rain. Furniture and decor are very elegant, historic sense of place. Very comfortable beds and beautiful rooms overlooking lake and surrounding mountains.
Place is getting tired. Room we had was not COVID clean. Mold in bathroom, musty smell. The are still charging for internet for higher speed, come on it's 2020 that like charging for lights. Great place for a getaway. Close to everything. Pricey.
Nothing else even comes close.

Top notch boutique hotel. Elegant mountain rustic decor. Phenomenal view of the lake.
Really enjoyed our stay here. The mountain view rooms are great, they have an alcove w 2 chairs, facing the lake that are great to relax in and stare at the lake. The restaurant, The View, was amazing. We ate here 2x and had breakfast daily. Everything was superb. Get the onion soup! And for breakfast, the granola. It's a wow. The customer service was good here as well. This is in a great location, right off main street and you can walk there. Really love that you can have breakfast delivered as room service, it's nice to eat while staring at the lake in your PJs. A couple things that could use improving: -The beds: very hard and uncomfortable, they squeak as you roll around in the night. -The coffee: it was a bit weak and felt like it was decaf. You also need stirrers out there to mix the sugar. -Check in: Front desk needs to explain things a little more, like breakfast, it is not in person, just take out or room service. We showed up 1 day bc we didn't know this. -Water: for a resort, you really should be giving out a bottle of water daily. It would be nice -Hyatt status: none if my Explorist status benefits were honored, it would have been nice. -Waiters in restaurant: all great! But some had on face shields and not masks. Face shields alone do not work well, studies have proven. Please have them put on a mask. All being said, we would definitely stay here again. We do hope they will improve the beds.
Nice but very pricey. Cottage offers fantastic views of Mirror Lake.
I didn't hate it ..but all resturaunts stop breakfast at 10:30 am we slept in late & when we went to find a place to eat simply pancakes at on main street all places were closed due to covid -19 viress & one one was open but we already are there it is so hard to find places to eat up here at lake Plascid NY !

Great Location off Lake Placid. Cabin next to lake was awesome
Ummm, like, it's the Mirror Lake Inn. Has been awesome for a long time. Gorgeous views and wonderful staff as always. The Cottage could catch up to where the price tag currently is. Still awesome though.
Wonderful - best hotel We have ever stayed. Beautiful, ditto bar and restaurant.
*N.B. This review only applies to the spa.* The pedicure was excellent and very detailed. However, I have twice had my hair trimmed and colored, and I shall not be returning because of the thoroughly poor job that was done. In spite of numerous requests for layers and two in-depth discussions about my expectations, she either ignored them or was incapable of cutting hair except straight across. This experience reflects very poorly on the venerable institution as a whole.
Great dinner. 5/5 recommend Caleb

The mountain view
I don’t know how the service was before COVID, but I would not wish for anyone to spend even a minute at this resort. The experience starts with rude front desk personal if you are lucky that they are even there. The experience will further extend to no cleaning of the room during the entire stay. Lastly, even an hour later check out seems too bothersome for them, even on a regular Monday. The only nice person we met during the entire stay, was the bartender! The rooms are mediocre at best, the common areas are okay. The small little stretch of sand was the nicest part of this resort. When expressing any comments, we were simply met the same explanation that it’s because of COVID. It’s just remarkable how COVID has not effected several other resorts we have visited, who have managed to safely keep the level of service. Do your selves a service and avoid this resort during COVID pandemic.
Beautiful hotel.... Prime location....
This place looks great. We didn't stay but the location is awesome
Very nice place to stay.
Nice folks. Beautiful place.
This would be a nice place to stay for about $200 per night but it does not live up to the rates they charge. The best part about our room was the beautiful view but such views are easy to come by in Lake Placid and there are plenty of $200 per night hotels in the area offering similar views. Our room was very dated - I would guess it was last updated about 30 years ago. And, while I understand the temporary suspension of housekeeping, they could have made it easier to get new supplies, get rid of trash, etc. - there should have been more of a system for this. The hotel restaurant - The View - was booked for our entire stay (we were called one day and offered a table due to a cancellation but had already made other plans so could not accept). To me, the hotel restaurant should be available to guests - it's one of the amenities and one of the reasons we chose to stay there. The people were friendly and helpful and the location was good. So, it's not that it's a bad hotel - it's just that it's way overpriced. Spending some of their profit on improvements would go a long way toward making this an actual luxury hotel.
My husband and I are presently staying in one of the Colonial House Suites. For $700+ per night, we are quite disappointed with our experience at this establishment thus far. Our room is fine, clean and comfortable, and the lake front balcony offers a lovely view. The amenities, however, leave much to be desired. The private “beach” is tiny and crowded. The View Restaurant was fully booked for the entire week of our stay (8 parties reportedly ahead of us for all 6 nights). The room service menu is quite limited, and from our one experience ordering room service, the food is mediocre at best. The restaurants in Lake Placid seem overwhelmed by the number of visitors; many are closed. Understandably, COVID-19 has likely played a role in some of these issues. Restaurants have limited capacity (as they should to prevent infection spread!). That said, the fact that guests of the hotel are unable to dine in the hotel’s restaurant for an entire week, is quite disappointing. We chose this hotel because it was advertised to offer luxury accommodations. Unfortunately, in all, this is a significantly overpriced establishment and the experience is nothing special.
Very good place
My wife and I stayed here this past weekend and loved it. Grounds were awesome. So many beautiful flowering plants. Great location. Close to Main Street, but not too close. Beachfront was very nice. Enjoyed using their free kayaks. Room was very nice with a comfortable sitting area near a picture window with a view of the mountains. My wife's arthritis was acting up and had a tough night's sleep the first night. They were kind enough to add a firm mattress topper and she had a pleasant second night. Staff were great. Very comprehensive approach to Covid-19 precautions, which we really appreciated. Loved our stay so much, we've already booked another weekend in Jan to see what it's like during the winter.
My husband and I were looking for a relaxing getaway. We chose this hotel because of the spa as well as the location. The grounds are beautiful and very meticulously maintained. We stayed on the top floor of the colonial house. Unfortunately, the room we stayed in had an obstructed view of the lake, which was very disappointing for the amount of money we paid per night. The room description boasts incredible views of the lake and the Adirondack mountains. Both the bedding linens and robes had a foul smelling odor. Upon request the linens were changed, however the smell did not change on the bedding, perhaps the mattress was soiled? This was highly disappointing. The spa was very nice, however due to covid-19, none of the amenities were available, with no reduction in service price. We were unable to eat at the restaurants on the property because we were told at checking that The View was completely booked for the weekend. The breakfast menu was extremely limited, a breakfast sandwich, French toast and smoked salmon bagel. Not quite the fine dining we expected.
Very relaxing place. The little waterfalls and gardens, the outdoor pool and beach all felt very private but comfortable. The indoor pool is such a unique design and was appreciated after I got too much sun. The private beach offers free paddle boards etc to get out on the lake.
We are here staying at the Mirror Lake Inn in Lake Placid, NY, as usual this place is amazing. We checked in yesterday and will be here till Sunday. We are staying in the cottage house (room L2) to be exact, the way the room is presented online does it no justice. We have two full bathrooms, two full separate bedrooms (which is perfect space for just sitting back for adult time with some cold beverages), the space is well worth the money, along with the service and hospitality that you receive from the staff. A huge shoutout to Jessica down at the beach. She has the patients of a saint, kids asking for this boat, that kayak and her attitude was nothing but amazing, she is just another perfect example of why this place should be rated 10 stars and not 4.
My husband and I came to the Inn for our anniversary, and we were blown away by the hospitality, picturesque views, and our immaculate lakeside cottage room! The staff and management were so welcoming, and the food was delicious. We will be visiting each year from now on!
Great place with excellent location to everything nearby. The rooms were nothing extraordinary but very clean and nice. Price was about 200$ higher than other places comparable.
Great location and plenty of space
Great service. Accommodations are very nice. Beautiful grounds. Very clean.

This is the best hotel in the world! Amazing people, amazing food, amazing service and amazing view!
First time at the Mirror Lake Inn and even though it had just opened back up from Covid and we had to wear masks it was very nice. Had a wonderful massage, and Erica at the front desk was super sweet! Jamey Atchinson delivered items to our room and he was so awesome! Only complaint was the miserable one at the front desk who told me I wasn't allowed to be on my phone in the lobby! I feel like she shouldn't be at the front desk...
It has been almost 6 months since we stayed at the Mirror Lake Inn last October for three days. We had a room on the second floor overlooking Mirror Lake. It was a beautiful room and the view was spectacular! The hotel was so beautiful and the staff was very helpful. I can’t wait to go back to this beautiful place and stay again at this beautiful hotel. Also we did have dinner in the hotel and it was delicious and the server was excellent. This hotel is truly a gem??. Thank you for this beautiful experience, Kathy Riedel & Tom Fenton
Very pretty and fun to be at
Great Food!! Wonderful Atmosphere!!
Beautiful in the winter, i can imagine what the summer looks like!!
Great staff. Nice rooms
Everyone is very nice, the rooms are great, the food is amazing, it's a quick trip to get to attractions and restaurants, it's somewhat inexpensive for the quality of the service, and everything has been awesome. The pool was nice, the jacuzzi was blistering hot though, but it was still very relaxing, not to mention larger than in other hotels I've been to. It was one of the best experiences I have had on a trip, and I would recommend this to anyone who likes winter sports, as there can be a lack of variety in the summer. 9/10 would go again in a heartbeat.
We didn't stay here but later found this as an excellent choice to have dinner as we made our way through upstate New York last fall. We were graciously allowed to walk around and take pictures afterwards and what a beautiful place. But for the reason of my post regarding dinner; Doris started off with a glass of sauvignon blanc while I had a couple bottles of Fiddlehead IPAs. For dinner Doris ordered the pot roast with mashed potatoes while I enjoyed clams and pasta. For desert we shared a Raspberry Creme Brulee. Our bill came to $ 104 before tip. Our waiter was friendly and very attentive and was comped accordingly. The dinner complimented the wonderful view over the lake. Highly recommend.
This is really cool place, right on the water, beautiful inside out. Even if you are not staying here you should stop for a drink at the bar and grab an appetizer. Lobster Mac and cheese or lobster risotto balls. Their bar has really nice bourbon/ Whiskey selection, including pappy van winkle.
Loved, loved this hotel. First time staying there and I had a great time. Went to see the fall foliage and the hotel did not disappoint. I had a room on the second floor overlooking the lake and it was gorgeous. It was great that there was an indoor pool as well as an outdoor one. Will definitely come back
It is charming Adirondack decor. Excellent breakfast buffetRoom clean and comfortable.
Majestic and magical...this is an amazing place with a kind, helpful, and appreciative staff. The place is just beautiful. We have stayed at other local places and always walked by and even ate at their restaurant “The Cottage”~ which is terrific by the way~ and always had the Inn on our places to stay and we are so glad that we chose to go during Christmas. The Inn was serene and decorated tastefully for Christmas...the pictures do it little justice; you have to experience it. We look forward to returning. Thanks to the owners and staff for a fantastic family vacation!
Excellent establishment, friendly service, very clean premises , magnificent view , the best choice for Lake Placid.
The dining and service here are world class. Will absolutely visit again.
Returned for our anniversary again. Every staff member made the weekend special. Especially our Taste Bistro waitress Autumn. She was over the top in hospitality and graciousness. We'll be back again!
Really nice. Very accommodating.
(Translated by Google) very short car ride by the lake but only beautiful Swiss style houses (Original) tour du lac en voiture très court mais que de belles maison style Suisse
Great place beautiful views
This hotel is everything a classic Adirondack experience should be. There is nothing that is lacking. The entire staff seems dedicated to delighting you. For an introvert like me, it can be a little uncomfortable, but is always welcoming!
We reserved a block of rooms for our wedding and they were so accommodating and easy to work with. They gave our guests a generous discount and provided superb service.
Truly a 5 star establishment with great service, nice ambiance,
Truly an amazing place to stay..The View restaurant lived up to the reviews. The staff from top to bottom couldn't have been more gracious and accommodating. Do your self a favor and make it a special place to go
Superb in every respect. One of the few places left with impeccable service, perfect ambiance and well managed staff. Even if you don't stay at the Inn, I highly recommend having at least dinner: A decent wine list, foie gras, wide selection of main courses, a cheese plate to finish... Quite inexpensive considering the standard.
Excellent atmosphere and beautiful rooms.
Premier type of establishment Lodge hotel overlooking Lake Placid The Marvelous restaurant superb staff top shelf place by C2 but you get your money's worth
Amazing location, lovely people, spa is top notch, live music in restaurants only enhaces the flavors of aromatic dishes but room decor is dated.
While the resort was beautiful and our stay was alright I will say I am not happy about how the resort sneakily snuck a $7.00 charge for a 'recommended' house keeping fee onto my credit card. This was not spoken about at check in, at all. While I am happy to tip house services, I do so at my discretion. And while the amount is really not a lot, the principle of the matter is that guests should be informed of such charge taking place.
Very upscale with good food and service. Drink's were excellent and food was great. Beautiful views of Mirror Lake.
Incredible views and very cozy
Classic hotel, great service, beautiful rooms.
Honestly, I'm impressed with this hotel and it is cute winter/cottage lodge with great vibe. Beach is very nice and it's private only for guests which has everything. Hot sauna, pool, hot tub are amazing and very uniquely themed after mountaineer style. It has two restaurants and one bar. The main lobby area are huge with fireplace many seats around and some of it are by windows which has beautiful lake views!! It is exceptional as they said. My stay was 100% fun and total relaxation which I'm recovering from climbing Mount Marcy for 14 hour hikes... I felt amazing in morning when I check out.
Beautiful lodge / resort. Rooms are nicely furnished and super clean with sliders that let the fresh mountain air in if desired. Gorgeous flowers everywhere. Excellent views of Mirror Lake. Loved our stay.
Beautiful hotel and spa in a convenient location. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful, an organization I chair holds an annual event at this location and Linda has always been a pleasure to work with to set this up. The food is excellent and the location cant be beat. Rooms are beautiful and well appointed. If you are going to be staying in Lake Placid you would be hard pressed to find a better location to stay.
Having worked at the MLI back in 1989 this resort exudes classic Adirondack elegance.
Just eating dinner at The Cottage. The "unique twist on pub fare" turns out attrious and yields $21 hotdogs (kid you not) and just weird food, especially for dinner. What a let down.
Had dinner at the Taste Bistro. Food and ambience are excellent, but service is slow.
Excellent place, excellent staff, was a pleasure to visit such a nice place.
Beautiful views. Comfortable bed and very clean.
Loved my 80-minute massage at the spa. Breakfast buffet with a view of the lake was spectacular.
Beautiful Spot Views Are Amazing And Food Is Excellent
This perfect for Relaxing
I deliver there and its very nice.
Top notch lodging, service, and food. Would definitely recommend.
Amazing experience. Old school charm
Moderate place to stay
Top dollar, but top venue makes it worth coming.
Fantastic place to stay in but look out for deals, expensive as expected.
Excellent service, food and view for our anniversary! They made it extremely special.
Great place to stay on vacation
This place is gorgeous! We can't wait to visit again.

Beautiful grounds, good restaurants, very friendly and accommodating staff.
Everything was great! Stated for 3 nights with our 3 kids. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Everything was clean. Food from their restaurant was very good. We did room service , didnt actually go. We would visit again
Great time with my daughters
Delicious, expertly prepared food. Excellent, friendly, personal service. Drinks were created and mixed flawlessly. The decor is lovely. Ornate wood fixtures and comfortable, overstuffed furniture. Rather expensive, but unique offerings and relaxed atmosphere with stunning views overlooking the historic lake. An idyllic setting to celebrate our 44th Wedding Anniversary.
First time at the spa and it was amazing. The staff are wonderful and the overall experience is very tranquil.
Very nice place, friendly staff, definitely would stay here again
Quiet and beautiful. The pool and amenities are incredible!!
Elegant, cosy. Food is delicious. Very good service
Beautiful in any season! Great food and the best robs to be cozy and relaxing in your room!! Will be go back again!!
Step above the rest. Excellent accommodates. Friendly and efficient staff.
Wife and I so appreciate the music of Chris Wilson on the rare weekend he performs. A great talent for a great setting.
Wonderful place with wonderful staff!
Lovely. Refined rustic.
Great location, beautiful foyer for lounging, nice indoor pool for kids, and better than expected food in all restaurants.
I would rate this place one of the nicest accommodations I have ever stayed. I was sent here for work and had to stay for about three weeks, but it felt like home. My room felt like a cozy log cabin with a separate room with a fireplace and seating area and desk. The bathroom was enormous with a jacuzzi. The pool felt like a relaxing, trickling stream, but was large enough to swim laps. They have a nice sauna and hot tub. The workout room had everything you could need. It is a resort so I’m sure all of these things are standard. I just felt like a king. It’s close by Main Street which has anything you need. It’s close by trails and hiking. It’s definitely a contender if you plan a stay at Lake Placid. I feel like the prices are competitive with the other hotels. The service was spot on and they never missed a chance asking if we needed anything. I would definitely go back.
Staff are great, room was comfortable and the place is beautiful. Meal last night was not hot and told the waiter but nothing happened. Had breakfast this morning and sausages were cold and told the waiter and he replaced them so that worked out fine.
Great mother's day brunch
Great dinner here.
Amazing spa services
I passed by to visit as I really wanted to rent a room here at first, but I opted for another hotel. I find the rooms decor a bit old, but overall the hotel is gorgeous the restaurant serves a good variety of food. If you want to take your loved one to a romantic restaurant overlooking the lake it's the place to be.
Beautiful hotel. The food in “The view” is very tasty.
Got the money ?????!? The best in Lake Placid.
My wife and I were in lake placid for our honeymoon and were recommend to mirror lake inn for dinner. The food was delicious the service was great and the whole experience was superb. Katie was very professional and recommended great wines. They made even made a nice congratulations baked Alaska smore dessert for us. We had a special experience and are very grateful.
This place has everything you need to make you feel like royalty.
Great view from our room. Not a lot of parking. Don't do the fine dining, was a disappointment.
Enjoyed our stay.
Our location for a relaxing weekend. And was it relaxing. Our room was great nice small view of the lake. The room was clean. Breakfast is expensive for a buffet. Dinner was good. Slightly impressive but nothing really knocked my socks off. Service was excellent. The Inn itself was beautiful. Plenty of places to sit and relax, enjoy the double sided fireplace or even sit infront of the picture window looking out to the lake. Wish there was an actual book section instead of sporadic ones around. Pool was gorgeous but extremely cold. Hot tub was nice. Overall the inn was great. One bad con....parking. It is basically first come first serve. If you want to go anywhere make sure its in walking distance.
It's a place like no other - unique, feel like an old movie and unforgettable experience. It's very close to everything there is to see in the area, nice walk around the property, few interesting place to eat and while summer time is probably more interesting for most people - off-season offers great experience too.
Beautiful grounds, elegant charm, truly the real deal
Absolutely beautiful place to stay. Spa is world-class, kid friendly, excellent food, super clean and warm, and everyone who works there is extremely friendly. Matt the bartender and their live entertainer Phil is awesome. Highly recommended place to stay anytime ur up in Lake Placid...
Awesome atmosphere with good cocktails. A little limited beer selection but sufficient variety
Amazing place to stay at!
Very nice place, rooms are big, clean, staff clean, restaurant is good, lawns kept nice, parking is huge... Just a perfect place
Dinner Sunday night was fabulous, as was the staff then, but staff Monday AM was clueless. One sent us to the View for b'fast while the next turned us away as b'fast "ended" just minutes earlier. Later massages were 50/50. Mine was excellent from Katia. My wife's masseuse, Brittany, chatted throughout the entire massage about her life (so relaxing) & tried to sell her additional oils! As our treatments were staggered, I asked the desk hostess, Kelly, to notify my wife that I'd await her at the pool. Kelly forgot & staff came looking for me after my wife sat waiting for me in the lobby for 30 minutes. No apologies in any of these instances. The experiences sullied what were fond memories from past visits
So enjoyed the evening by the fire with friends - great wine and wonderful fried Lobster risotto appetizers. AAAA++++
Really nice meal on Mirror lake. Amazing Mac and cheese!
Visiting just for the spa, which was amazing. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Highly recommend!
Beautiful place to be enjoying with family, near all activities. Pool is phenomenal and big enough to have lots of fun. Hot water pool is beautiful. A clean, courteous, quite, relaxing place to be in. Loved it!!!!
Inconsistency in the service but overall good.
It's a promising place: good location, charmy, cozy, well decarated, good facilities and great view. The service is overall good with some inconsistency in our case. Not very accommodating at the restaurant ( not in general but when a lady called Tess was involved), not helping with luggage ( that was problematic in our case since we were women with kids), no so welcoming at the check-in.
Beautiful hotel & views. Excellent staff. Very good restaurants.
We just got back from a 4 night stay with our family. The lobby and common areas were very nice. The pool and hot tub were very nice and well maintained. Our room was just okay. Not what I expected from a luxury hotel. Needed some updating. There was moldly mildew on the grout in the tub. We had issues with the toilet and key cards. I feel like the rooms are over priced for what you get. The kids really enjoyed the cookies and hot chocolate in the lobby. It was a bit inconvenient to have to go to the lobby for coffee in the morning instead of having a pot in the room. I was a little turned off to this hotel because of all the "rules" posted everywhere. The no cell phone signs were excessive posted all around the place and the little note that was given at checkin about children and their behavior was maybe overkill. We travel often and stay in nice hotels all over the country. I have never visited another hotel that needed signage such as this. They also charge $17.50 gratuity for the maid service automatically. I would have much preferred to choose my own tip amount for the maid.
Thank you for the hospitality. Always a great stay !
Amazing. Friendly helpful staff. Beautiful property.
This place was a real treat. The staff did all they could to accommodate us. The old world wood work is very nice. There common sitting areas were really nice. Breakfast was great also. A couple of minor issues: one is I would have liked a microwave in the room. Secondly, and a little more important is that it was noisy at night. There was rattling and tapping noises, I think because of the old radiator and how old the building is, there's not a lot of soundproofing. Overall I would absolutely recommend.
I have only visited the cottage quite a few times. Foods always great
Lovely resort and atmosphere. Very Christmas season resort with really quaint town of Lake Placid
What a warm and inviting location. Highly recommended if you are visiting the Adirondacks.
This was my second time here and still absolutely amazing. Every detail is perfect! The employees are fantastic, got to meet the owners son who has been in the Olympics! Food is great. Ambiance is so cozy in the living room/lobby. Spa/massages were perfect. Recieved complimentary bottle of wine. Will be returning again in the future!
Beautiful inn with incredible views of Mirror Lake. Very festive decorations at Christmas time. Small indoor pool, hot tub, outdoor pool, spa services and fitness center available. Tea time is offered every day between 3:30 and 4:30 in the lobby with cookies. Restaurants that work in conjunction with the Inn include the Cottage, located just down the hill, and the View and Bistro are located within the Inn itself. Rates listed online we're misleading.

(Translated by Google) Excellent attention, all the rooms have a view of the lake mirror, you do not feel the difference between the most expensive and the cheapest. (Original) Excelente atención, todas las habitaciones tienen vista al mirror lake, no se siente tanto la diferencia entre las más caras y las más baratas.
Enchanted holiday experience!
Been coming here for years, all seasons, all occasions,never disappointed. Best staff and amenities anywhere, not to mention the incredible beauty of the Adirondaks
Best Place Ever! They are so nice and it's so warm you feel like home there and can enjoy all activities and the lake!
Phenomenal service, the best food, festive winter ambiance, beautiful inn. Best location I've ever stayed in at Lake Placid. Owners don't cut corners. Deserving of its rating as one of the top hotels in America.
Good location, nice main building (a confusing maze to the other buildings), great views of the lake. But the service was terrible and the staff, although with a smile on their face, couldn't solve the problems. Just to point out some issues: they gave me a room which was already occupied by a guest and my room's toilet had a black stain that looked like dirt...
DO NOT GO TO THE MIRROR LAKE IN !! Total scam!! We made a reservation around 8:00pm on a Thursday night. We unfortunately realized on Friday morning that we would not be able to make it. So we called as soon as they opened to cancel our dinner reservation. The guy then proceeds to tell me there would be a $50. Per person cancellation fee ($200.00) I explained I was never told this when we made the reservation and that we literally had just made it a couple hours prior. He didn’t care and proceeded to charge my credit card $200. I am battling with my credit card company and this establishment has now lied to American Express telling them that we never cancelled and that we just didn’t show up. Total lie, total scumbag place. DO NOT GIVE YOUR BUSINESS TO THESE PEOPLE!!! So many better restaurants and places to stay in Lake Placid!! The other establishments in Lake Placid will not steal your money like the Mirror Lake Inn. Stay far away!!
All good and no bad. 5star service, accommodations, location. Feel like royalty
You cant get bettet than this place.
Very professional staff, relaxing environment and beyond accomodating.
Awesome, as always.
Beautiful rooms and views. Would definitely stay there again.
It was a nice stay.
We love the MLI and stay every year around our anniversary. They treat their guests like royalty and we highly recommend them. See you next year!
Great place to relax and get your head together
Great place to relax and unwind and soak in the beauty of upstate New York
Great place, amazing resort! The staff was too notch. The views are spectacular!
Excellent accommodations, great location and view. Rooms are large and the atmosphere is amazing. Overall an excellent choice.
Great service provided for a rehearsal dinner!! The staff were very pleasant and attended to everyone's needs. I would recommend to anyone having a wedding in the area to use this place!
You have spend a day or two here and judge for yourself. We've stayed here 6 times.
The rooms come with an incredible view and all of the staff are excellent and accommodating
My wife and I came here for our anniversary this past week. It was everything we hoped for: luxurious, relaxing, and quiet. We booked the Ultimate Night Out package. The spa was fantastic, the indoor pool was beautiful, and the dinner at the view was to die for.
Great town, great inn.
Awesome classic lake Inn
Very beautiful with breathtaking views of the lake and the town. Signs for reception office should be more obvious to new guests arriving at the hotel. I had to drive around a few tomes before I figured it out. Then the first sign I saw was to turn off your cell phone.

Love it! Views are beautiful, service is great!
I've twice held a work meeting here, with a small group, including an overnight stay. The rooms are wonderful - you get a fantastic view and ambiance. It'd be a great place to go back to as a little romantic getaway. They had nice little touches like a cracker & cheese plates in the rooms for VIPs. The lunch was delicious, especially the soup (pumpkin or sweet potato). The conference room was a good size for a group of about a dozen, with the fires going throughout the day. Even with all the rustic appearance it had everything we needed for presentations and connecting to laptops. When we had an issue connecting Drew was right on hand to help resolve right away. Great experience.
Great food and service.
Pretty place in a boring town
I was very happy with my stay at Mirror Lake Inn. The location was great. The lake side beach was terrific. The rooms were very nice. The staff was very good. The cookies at the desk were delicious. We were very happy.
I'm active duty and I spend quite a bit of time away from friends, and family. When I'm at my breaking point, and I need a solid weekend of relaxation, this is the place. Mirror Lake Inn may be a few bucks more than your average hotel or motel. However, it has quite a bit to offer. A gym, Spa, dry sauna, hot tub, indoor pool, outdoor pool, beach, kayacking, canoeing, and daily activities, you can't go wrong. I also like how noise, and cell phone use is restricted in the lobby and library. (Unless it's a dire emergency of course) It's nice not having to be on the phone, or over hear someone's conversation while trying to relax. I think you should seriously consider, or at least try it once and see what you think.
Very nice clean place like that a lot
Thank you Yvonne for answering all questions. Hope we get up
Amazing restaurant with amazing food. Got seated in a private patio which was very nice
View at Mirror Lake is a very special dining experience. The restaurant is beautiful inside, with spectacular views. We were a party of four and were looking forward to culinary delights and great conversation. We ordered drinks, I highly recommend asking for an aviation (not aviator) if you like beautiful purple fin drinks, otherwise the pomegranate martini was perfect. We asked for more time between the cocktails and ordering, and our waiters obliged, giving us plenty of time to enjoy our evening. The food could not have tasted better!!!! We had two chef specials in between courses. A spoon with a delicious mushroom with broth a pea sprout and truly the most delicious sorbet I have ever eaten between the first and second plates. Everything we ordered was cooked to perfection! The single scallop appetizer and the crab cake were my favorite. I do not mind paying for an extraordinary meal. View is a five star restaurant for sure. However, portion size for the scallop and crab cake was very very small, and $19 for a single scallop, although prepared perfectly, is unreasonable. I highly recommend View for very special occasions, but expect to spend $200 for a couple.
I can only speak for the food in the bar (Taste) - and it's five stars all day long. The view should make it six. We've been here several times and haven't gone wrong yet.
Absolute gem of an Inn. Impeccable everything...especially the dining.
Friendly staff and clean rooms. ambiance and a private beach. Pretty cool place
Gorgeous hotel and spa
I would give it zero stars if I was allowed to. When we first arrived, we quickly noticed how out dated our room was. Our rug felt damp as well as the towels they gave us. The first restless night was due to the air conditioning not turning off, so it was constantly blowing cold air. We turned it off since all 5 of us were practically freezing. That quickly made it turn to a muggy/ moist feeling in the air that was also very uncomfortable to sleep in. The hostess (Lauren Rupert) failed to accommodate us in any way. We informed her about our uncomfortable room the previous day, and asked kindly if we would be able to get our money back for the third night. Instead of her being agreeable, she constantly argued with us and said there is no way that we would be able to be refunded. I guess the saying “The customer is always right” does not apply here, or at least with the manager lauren. We actually left a day early because of the rooms conditions. While we were packing our bags we kept getting phone calls on the landline, and finally answered to the housekeeping lady asking if we were still there (even though we were booked for another night). We asked the kind housekeeping lady why they were in such a rush to clean our room a day early, her response was that they already had sold the room and was cleaning it for someone else move in. This is a disgusting way to treat the customers who paid almost 2k for their 3 night minimum. Surprisingly there was some pros... The lake was beautiful and their other foreign employees were a fantastic help.
Spent our anniversary weekend here. Everything was incredible!
Mirror Lake Inn has very nice accommodations. Our room was spotless, spacious and well maintained. We were quite pleased with our room. The decor throughout the facility tastefully reflected Adirondack settings. The Inn has a comprehensive set of services available, to include dining, spa, gym and salons. Our room package included breakfast. We were impressed with both the choices and the meal. The breakfasts were superb, well prepared and presented by courteous, friendly, attentive staff. We also had a nice dinner at The Cottage. All the staff we met were friendly, helpful, courteous and professional. I am retired, but my former job required extensive overnight travel. The foregoing observations are made with 30 years experience from a wide variety of accommodations. We enjoyed our first stay at the Mirror Lake Inn and plan to return in the future.
Very pleasant experiance
Beautiful Inn with comfortable rooms with awesome views of the lake. Expensive but worth the money to treat yourself for the experience and services they provide. Old world charm with modern convienences.
Had absolute the most splendid weekend possible in Lake Placid, thanks to my stay at Mirror Lake Inn. From the historic charm to the delicious food and warm family ambiance, I couldn't have imagined a better escape from the city. The spa was absolutely delightful and truly felt like an oasis. The staff were top notch always helping and even offering scrumptious chocolate chip cookies throughout the day. Highly recommend booking a stay or two as this truly a gem!
Wonderful experience. Nice service and definitely perfect reason for a revisit.
Beautiful place for sure.
We lived it! It has amazing facilities. It was clean, indoor pool is really big and nice. It had its own private beach and paddle boats for guests to use.
Absolutely gorgeous! Fantastic staff and service.
Mirror Lake Inn goes above and beyond to meet your expectations. Always surprising the guest. Staff friendly and responsive to your needs. Experience the process you won't be disappointed. Just had a major event there and they didn't not disappoint. Mark
We went for a manicure and pedicure at the spa and it was great. Such nice people and excellent service. I would highly recommend.
I went to Mirror Lake Inn for the spa. It was amazing. Got a pedicure and a manicure. They did an amazing job and everyone was super friendly. As we entered the premises we were greeted by a warming atmosphere and smiling faces to direct us to the spa. We were offered complimentary drinks (the first one is free) and the mimosa was delicious. During the pedicure you are able to select from three scents for the body scrubs which was a nice touch. The tools they use are disposable as well for those germaphobes out there (loved that.) Additionally during the manicure they clean your rings for you, which was a nice bonus.
Went to the View restaurant for Mother's Day brunch. The food was delicious, the service was wonderful and the atmosphere was relaxing!
Beautiful room, great service awesome view
Best place for relaxation and pampering. Can't wait to go back and stay at the Lake Cottage. Thank You Sara Jean & Patricia for your suggestion to come visit. Totally decompressed!!!!
Everything was perfect!! Beautiful view from our room, friendly and courteous staff!
Great stay. The hotel is very well put together and has tasteful antique decor. All three of their restaurants are seem very nice. We only ate in the bistro/bar and we had a nice three course meal. The view from our room was excellent, with a perfect view of the mirror lake.
The only thing nice about the veiw.. and not the restaurant.. the staff has been rude, unhelpful..and I refuse to ever stay there again
Just amazing! the staff is professional and the views are breathtaking.
It is so beautiful here
Very nice hotel in a great position.
Always cozy, timeless interiors, vintage ski lodge feel with luxury accoms. This was my room view
Great Staff. Beautiful view.
Lovely place! It was perfect for a relaxing getaway! The view was beautiful!
This place is idyllic and picturesque, like out of a movie. Dinner at the restaurant was excellent. Great service and food.
The spa is amazing!
Amazing rooms, amazing staff, this place is magical.
Beautiful place for a venue!!
Wonderful staff very nice facility
We stayed at the Mirror Lake Inn for 3 nights. Overall great experience as the staff made us feel welcome. The room was large with a nice view of the lake and mountains. The restaurants on site were good with The View (more formal) and The Cottage (casual) being the best choices.
Great, great food there! Top-notch lodgings. Perfect staff. Clean as can be. Wonderful.
My brother got married here last weekend and it was first class all the way. The food was amazing the rooms were clean the views were awesome. The service was fantastic!
Fine start dining at it's best. Highly recommended for special occasions.
Excellent location to visit Lake Placid!
Great place to stay
The best Spa I've ever been to. Every detail of this was an amazing experience. You get your own locker, robe, sandals and the enjoyment of hot tubs, steam room, pool area, parlor and dry sauna. The staff were top notch, always replenishing the accommodations and extremely kind and helpful! Very much worth the money.
My girlfriend and I spent 2 nights at the Mirror Lake Inn during our trip to Lake Placid. We had a great time and I would definitely recommend it if you're looking for somewhere higher end to stay in town. The hotel is beautiful with an amazing lobby and well-manicured grounds. Definitely spend some time sitting by the fire in the Adirondack decorated seating areas. All of the rooms come with a view and try picking something out on a higher floor if you want a better view of the lake and mountains. There's a spa on-site for massages and other treatments. All year round you can swim in the indoor pool and take advantage of the other services that the hotel offers. In the summer you can go swimming in Mirror Lake right across the street from the hotel. They own the beach and there’s a small boat house with towels and a changeroom. Both breakfast and dinner options are available Right at the hotel. There are a few different restaurants that range in price point and cuisine depending on what you're looking for. There is parking available at the property although it can be pretty tight depending on what time you arrive. The wifi worked great and I had no trouble getting on the net during my stay, even at peak times. The small town of Lake Placid with all of its shops and restaurants are 5 minutes away on. There's no need to drive anywhere unless you want to head to one of the Olympic museums or other hiking trails. For the price, there are few other similar properties in the area. You're definitely going to want to visit the Mirror Lake Inn if you're looking for a comfortable and relaxing luxury getaway in Lake Placid and the Adirondack Mountains.
Pricey place but very nice. Our room had a great view of the lake. Frozen when we where here during the winter. I can imagine it being a great view all year long. We didn't use any of the restaurants but did use the spa for massages. Most expensive massage I have ever had by quite a few dollars. The massage was average but the spa and pool area are very nice. Great for a winter swim. The Lobbies were also very well decorated and staff was very friendly. Would recommend if you can stomach the prices.
Always a great time and place to stay

Awesome hotel Beautiful location Over the top friendly staff
One of the best places to stay in the Adirondacks. Very friendly staff, delicious food, cozy common areas, and amazing room views. Loved the fireplace and checkers board near the main lobby for a place to hang out!
Fantastic inn on the lake, staff is super friendly,rustic Adirondack decor ,the view restaurant has superior food ,some rooms have fireplaces and oversized jacuzzi tubs ,,a must stay at hotel ,,winter when it's snowing it's like a Hallmark experience
Beautiful Inn with the worst internet usage policy. If you have kids with multiple devices plan on frustration and using a lot of data. Given the price of a nightly stay, fighting to get on WiFi should not be a concern.
Went for New Years brunch. Wow! Awesome hotel and restaurant. Service was great. Request the sunroom for a nice table.
Didn't really visited the place just drove by it.
Lovely atmosphere, carrying staff; the food is pricey for the quality and taste, but the place, location and views are beautiful
A fantastic experience that will leave you wanting to come back straight away. excellent atmosphere a gem in the heart of London
Ronald Alexander Damian D.
Inconsistent spa quality. Sometimes good, sometimes bad. I had a deep tissue massage done by Sandy yesterday and there was nothing deep tissue about it. Very disappointed, especially since they charge a premium over the classic for it. That said, I have had good massages there in the past and their eucalyptus steam room is great!
Amazing spa, everyone is very accommodating and will go out of their way to make your visit the best possible!
Great views and amazing service.
Photos don't do it justice. This was one of the nicest hotels I've ever been to.
Beautiful room and atmosphere. Can't wait to go back
We have been to Lake Placid many times and have always wanted to stay here. For our honeymoon we decide to stay here and we could not have been more happy. Our room over looked the lake and had a great view of the high peaks. They had chocolates and a nice letter in our room before we got there. Everyone that worked there were helpful and always nice. The lobby and is gorgeous along with every other room at the hotel. the attention to detail in every aspect is evident. The price is high per night but you get what you pay for. Its an amazing place that we will defiantly stay at again.
Kind of pricey but the food was fantastic and the service was great.
We have dined Mirror Lake Inn several times and each time has been wonderful. The food is delicious and the staff is top notch. Call for reservations rather than use the website...the staff will work with you to get a table. Top notch all around.
Very nice would definitely recommend
Great scenic lake front veiws
My wife and I had a wonderful experience in the fun winter lodge vibe!
Easy to book spa, wonderful time for my wife.
Wonderfully relaxing. Staff was always friendly, and the hotel was quite quiet. Enjoyed the pool, sauna, and jacuzzi. Will be back!
Beautiful setting, helpful but not invasive, quality!
Stopped in for a couple drinks at the bar, very nice
5 star resort with great views
Beautiful. Feels like a well run B&B
Outstanding resort in every way
Total Adirondack Charm, amazing pool and spa. There is nothing better than breakfast on the porch. Great bar with views of Mirror Lake and the High Peaks, all the grounds are immaculate . The staff is always super happy because its so great just being there.
What a wonderful garden!
friend works here came to admire beautiful garden
Tops in lake placid
Mirror Lake Inn is really good the rooms are cool the pool and Lake have amazing activities that you can do and the fishing dog has a lot of fish around it. I love this pace!
Thoroughly enjoyed our anniversary dinner, fantastic food and great staff. The perfect evening!
Excellent service and food.
The room was beautiful and had a great view they had a lot of things to do. Beautiful indoor pool and access to the lake for guests only with paddle boats, conoes and more.
Debby Thayer P.
Food is excellent and there is a beautiful view of Mirror lake.
Spa massage was awesome
Simply magnificent! Beautiful, comfortable and everyone who works here treats you special!
The Mirror Lake Inn has been a staple in my household for many, many years. They continually improve their services and have a stellar staff. The pool and spa area is fantastic, there's a wonderful selection of free boats to rent for the lake, and plenty of quiet areas in the hotel to settle in with a book. Lake Placid wouldn't be the same without this hotel.
Amazing food and service
Beautiful hotel. Perfect location and wonderful staff.
Maria Alicia C.
Pricey but nice spa
Great stay everything was exclusive
We stopped in for a cocktail and listened to Ryan Grant playing guitar. What an enjoyable time. Very nice atmosphere.
Fantastic, friendly and personal service. Quick honeymoon getaway, it has been a wonderful couple days. Every amenity, including kayaks and SUPs.
Lovely location, beautiful rooms. Feels like a step to another time (in a good way).
Lovely spot, great restaurants and fantastic location!
Great historic property, nicely located with River view. Rooms are spacious and are a good mix of historic with some modern amenities. Staff is very courteous.
Went to the spa and had a massage. The therapist was fantastic, as was the facility. The only issue we had was a young woman talking loudly on her cell phone for at least ten minutes while walking around the locker room. It killed the relaxation vibe.
Amazing facility with wonderful staff and service. A must stay if headed to Lake Placid.
Great staff, great rooms, and amazing atmosphere. Restaurant was amazing and attentive.
Very nice atmosphere.
Incredible hotel with awesome dining. They really take steps to make your experience a wonderful one. Certainly comes at a price but beyond worth it. Be sure to do the overlook dining experience on the lake.
Good food and amenities.
Beautiful property. Well-worth a visit.
Grew up going here every winter. Beautiful boutique hotel and amazing service.
Our room was right on the lake with a beautiful view, the power went out but the staff was extremely professional and helped all the guests providing flashlights and apologizing. They relied on back up power keeping the restaurant in the hotel open with all staff on Deck it was extremely professional everybody was extremely friendly and was a great experience.
All rooms have mountains and lake view! Everything is to quality: room, food, pool. Stuff are polite and helpful. We definitely return to this place, it was a great pick. The views are spectacular. Skiing areas are very close, driving distance.
A beautiful place with great views, for summer & winter!
Such a beautiful spot just on the outskirts of Lake Placids tiny town..the staff were a delight and when we told them we were there to celebrate an event they sent a bottle of wine to our room! Will definitely be back!
Love tea time
Its simply perfect.
My husband and I love staying at Mirror Lake Inn and usually go in the fall to see the leaves changing. However, this year we went for our anniversary on 1/26/17 and stayed for a long weekend. We absolutely love staying in this beautiful place!! The rooms are beautiful and you can't go wrong!! We went dogsledding and went for a snow shoe hike as well. We can't wait to go back!!
The staff has been excellent and the quality of everything has been top notch.
Always a pleasure. For a 5 hour conference they need to refill the coffee and tea.
The Mirror Lake Inn has a really enjoyable spa experience - especially since they newly renovated the spa experience (at least for the women!). My masseuse was professional and worked out all of the kinks, which was much needed after a few days of skiing. I didn't have time to use the pool/hot tub but would love to next time....
our stay this year was just as good as last year. This year we didn't get a suite but a room with a better view and we believe it was the right move. I will say the fireplace was missed as was the sauna. The personal that work here are "exceptional". From the time you arrive till you checkout they are all very friendly and helpful. Every employee you ran into greeted you with a smile and good morning/afternoon or evening. The Inn was again this year decorated in the great taste and reminding you you it is a great time of the year. Put this on your to do list and you will see how nice the Inn is. I will admit you will spend more money than if you stayed someplace else. We are hoping to return again next Christmas.
We have been coming here for 20 years and it is still one of the best places for a romantic meal. Christmas 2016 and our meal was supurb! Thanks to Ben our server who was cheerful and attentive throughout the whole service. Ordered the prime rib and ham dinners-did not disappoint. The hotel looked lovely decorated for the holidays!
Have been coming here for years. Beautiful decor, first rate service, and good food and drinks
My girlfriend surprised me with a getaway to the Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa and I had the most amazing time. The room was lovely, we had a gorgeous view of Lake Placid. We built a snowman using the complementary snowman kit provided by the Front Desk and used the jacuzzi after a day of playing in the snow. Would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for a luxurious getaway to a snowy scene.
Wonderful service at this inn!
Beautiful venue, delicious food, incredible view.
Views are great and staff is very friendly. Will definitely come back. Not sure if we will use the spa again though. Dinner at the view was also great, and would dine there again!
Ate at the view. Food was outstanding. You get what you pay for. Service great. Piano man was on point.
This place is fantastic!! Everything from their polite and kind staff to their wonderful accommodations. Every member of the staff went out of their way to say 'hello', and our housekeeper, Linda, was tremendous. There's nothing like going out to the dock in the morning and admiring Mirror Lake. What makes it even better is that, for free when staying here, you can take canoes, kayaks, paddle boards, and pedal boats out on the lake! This was amazing and so much fun. The overall atmosphere of the hotel was unbelievable, and cannot be forgotten. The aroma of pine filling the lobby and halls, and the rustic, woodsy theme of the many living room areas in the lobby. Mirror Lake Inn is a one-of-a-kind hotel, and I strongly insist that you make your vacation there. It's hard to beat!
This is a review for the salon at the Mirror Lake Inn. My wife went in for a deluxe pedicure that I got her for her birthday. Walking through the lobby to the salon, we were impressed with the decor, it looked fancy without being stuffy. Checking in to her appointment was easy, and the staff were very welcoming. I was allowed to sit next to my wife as she was worked on, since it was quiet that day. My wife says that it was the best pedicure she's ever had, and her feet never felt so pampered before. I would definitely recommend this service if you need a gift for a loved one (or for yourself).
Great food and service
Bar was fully stocked. Find a nice little porch to sit on and enjoy our our drinks before hitting the town for dinner.
They inflated the price from $808 plus tax to $914 without an explanation. I find this disingenuous. Joe Libertson
We went to the restaurant Taste Bistro in the lobby and it was absolutely incredible. First of all, they have two bottles of oil and vinegar from Saratoga Oil Company on the table that they serve with crusty bread. I could have walked out of there happy with just that! After dinner we walked to Saratoga Oil Co down the street and bought a couple bottles for ourselves. Second, the view of the lake while we ate was so serene. How do you beat views of Mirror Lake and the Adirondacks while you eat? You don't. Thirdly, the food was incredible! Get the pot roast. Trust me. So good! I ended up asking for an additional basket of bread because I couldn't let the au jus go to waste after I finishing everything else. It was THAT delicious. Definitely eat here, it's beautiful and the food is delicious! If I go back to Lake Placid I would certainly consider staying here just for Taste Bistro.
Went to The Cottage. Menu has changed and it feels more hotely than homey now. Also, the service was slow this time.
It's an expensive hotel, but the best place to stay in Lake Placid. It's fairly impeccably maintained, with decor stately or charming, depending on the room. The rooms are clean and comfortable, but my favorite places in the Inn are outside the hotel room. There are many amenities and I particularly enjoy the pools, the living room, the porches, and the library. It's not a connected, business hotel (there is wifi and you can pay to send a fax), but that's really OK by me. You go here to get away and relax. Most hotels don't have a place to read, brood, or take in the view like you can at the Inn. What distinguishes this resort from any nicely-appointed hotel is the quality of service and welcome you get from the staff, who say hello in passing and remain unfailing polite and attentive.
(Translated by Google) Mirror Lake Inn is a quiet place to enjoy the lake and also to ski. (Original) Mirror Lake Inn es un logar bien tranquilo, para disfrutar del lago y también para esquiar.

Very nice pool good Costner serves hood restaurants nice place to stay
Beautiful inn, great pool, sauna and hot tub. Our room was amazing, beautiful view of the high peaks and very clean. Lovely staff. Would definitely come back.
This is my second year in a row staying at the Mirror Lake Inn and unfortunately will be my last. The place is nicely decorated and close to everything which is a plus. In my opinion, the breakfast was a bit expensive...there are many other places in town for breakfast that are cheaper. Parking is a bit of a pain in the neck...2X on my first stay I could not find a spot in my assigned lot....luckily, there were other spots nearby....keep in mind I went in a very busy time of year. The desk service was ok... I also found the maid service about average compared to other places I vacationed. The nicely appointed lobby rooms were cold....it was freezing outside during my stay, so that could have contributed to the coldness inside...cookies were delicious. I can tell you this...whatever you do be aware of the shuttle bus service. Twice it was off schedule... My wife and I were waiting almost 30 minutes in the bitter cold outside the Mirror Lake Inn, sub freezing temperatures, by the curb where the bus stops. During my stay, I asked the desk to call a cab and was quoted 20/dollars...when the cab dropped us at the mountain, the price changed to 25/dollars...On 2 trips the shuttle felt like it had no heat..a young woman, with a young child and my wife and I were on the bus...we were subjected to freezing temperatures on the shuttle. I did email management. After I told them I would not return to this hotel, they offered me 150/dollars credit towards my next stay...nice of them, but that was after I told them I will not be staying here anymore and opted out of the offer. Additionally, they did credit my account 5/dollars for the car service mishap....i found that to be a nice gesture. The management team did mention it was not their responsibility of the lateness of the shuttle bus service and would share my complaint with the team who manages the shuttle. In my opinion, this place is not cheap by all means...I would expect a better overall experience. The location was very good, close to shopping, the lake and dining and the view from some of the rooms was very nice...this year, my room had a partially blocked view of the lake which was very disappointing to me compared to last year.
Great place......Just make sure your Wallet is plenty FAT.
Lovely hotel. Had a great birthday weekend.
This review is about the Cottage at Mirror Lake Inn. While the food is always average, the service is generally bad. From the hostess who cannot see beyond the front group waiting for an outside table while a line of customers would be satisfied with one of the many free tables inside, to the clean up of dirty tables that is done by the same hostess instead of the waiting staff, to the slow moves of the wait staff, to the chronically undersized kitchen staff generating long wait time, the only quality is its view of Mirror Lake framed by the beautiful mountains. Yes you can improve if you decide to manage the Cottage.
Really nice resort, very quaint and unique - old world in many ways. Was here during winter for a management offsite. Got caught in a snow-storm. But the hotels really warm and cosy. Great stay...
Great staff, helpful and friendly, clean spacious rooms, excellent location, wonderful lounges and terraces, fantastic breakfast. We didn't try the dinner but there is a small lakeside cafe across the street which was also 5 star.
My daughter, three young children and I stayed at the Mirror Lake Inn during the last few days in August. We have been returning guests for the past several years. We stayed in the new "Lookout" rooms that were perfect for our family. I am always impressed with the friendliness of the staff and the comfort of the rooms, especially the beds. My favorite time is going to the beach with the kids ( swimming, kayaking and having lunch from the Cottage). As my daughter got the kids settled, I would go to the Bistro to pick up dinner. Having a glass of wine at the bar was a nice end to the evening.
(Translated by Google) Best address, highly recommended. The service is awesome. (Original) Beste Adresse, sehr zu empfehlen. Der Service ist der Hammer.
We stayed here last year. Posted an honest 3-star review of the establishment on Trip Advisor only to receive a condescending, arrogant and unapologetic response from the general manager. Any negative review gets an equally negative response along with details of "we know who you are". Instead of offering to make it right and try to make an offer for a future visit - they just slam the guest for being honest. The place has it's Adirondack charm, but that's pretty much where it ends. FU Carl Gronlund.
If you want an experience to remember then you must stay at The Mirror Lake Inn. Just know this, it will make you come back again and again. You just won't find any place else that cares more about making sure their guests feel completely welcome and appreciated. Every staff member is cheerful and 100 percent on the ball to make sure you have everything you need. If there was one aspect that one dislikes about their stay at The Mirror Lake Inn, it is the day you have to leave. I highly recommend you book a suite, eat at The View, enjoy happy hour at the Lake Cottage or Taste Bistro, and relax in the Spa.
SPA REVIEW: I went to the spa and had a waxing service. Britney was my technician. She was friendly and very professional. The facilities were clean. The ambiance was very relaxing. I was not expecting all the perks that came with the service. With your scheduled service you get a locker with a key, a robe and slippers to wear. You have access to showers, vanity tables, 2 saunas, and a jacuzzi. You have access to the facility for the whole day. The services room that I was in was very clean, and relaxing. And Britney was courteous & confident in what she was doing. She made sure to make me feel as comfortable as possible. I will definitely go back for services.
The Mirror Lake Inn does everything well. The place is a historical ongoing story of improvement of all services offered. I have been going there for 20 plus years. Classic Lake Placid.
All around great and very classy.
I visit the Spa, salon and restaurants regularly. Everyone is always personable and helpful.
