Cleanliness and friendliness, the hallmarks of the Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa in Lake Placid for over 40 years, are back on display once again. The iconic lodging property five hours drive from NYC welcomes guests for full-time service.

The AAA Four-Diamond property, which offers an authentic Adirondack experience also provides state-of-the-art Hospital-grade Cleaning Equipment. “With the health and safety of our staff and guests uppermost on our minds, we have taken the concept of cleaning, that was thorough enough to help us achieve 36 consecutive AAA Four Diamond awards, and invested time, energy and money into making it even better,” said Ed Weibrecht, Mirror Lake Inn owner. 

Watch this video to get a glimpse:

You can participate in a wide range of activities in the area, be it hiking, fishing, swimming or boating. You can make a campfire, play golf or tennis, walk and jog in super clean air, visit Lake Placid’s Olympic sites, drive to the summit of nearby Whiteface Mountain or just relax at the Inn’s private beach or indoor and outdoor pools. These can easily fill vacation days.

Championship golf is also available for Mirror Lake Inn guests at its sister property, the Whiteface Club and Resort.

Upstate New York Getaway: Overlooking Mirror Lake and the Adirondack High Peaks

The luxury seven-acre property offers 130 units all overlooking beautiful Mirror Lake and the mighty Adirondack High Peaks. The “single-loaded” construction and design concept of this magnificent resort naturally lends itself to better social distancing as there are fewer guests in the hallways than traditional lodging properties where rooms are placed on both sides of the corridor. No other Adirondack region hotel is designed in this manner.

A Change to the Dining Scene Inside Mirror Lake Inn

The pandemic has also resulted in a change to the dining scene inside the Mirror Lake Inn. The View Restaurant, AAA Four Diamond-rated for the past 13 consecutive years, has been reimagined and enlarged with greater spacing as part of the new safety measures. The redesign includes hardwood flooring to facilitate better cleaning and sanitation.

The Taste Bistro has been integrated into The View with the bistro’s most popular items to be found on The View’s menu. The end result will present guests with the best of both worlds: a combination of upscale dining and elegant comfort food. Taste’s footprint has become The View Lounge. The hip Cottage Café, on the shores of Mirror Lake, continues to welcome diners and revelers for its 43rd year (!).

The spa and salon are also ready to welcome guests. A physical barrier has been inserted at the check-in desk. Treatment schedules have been altered to ensure ample time for cleaning and disinfecting treatment surfaces between customers. Equipment in the fitness room will also be cleaned and disinfected between guest use. Manicures and pedicures will be limited to one at a time, although booking as a safe group is permissible. The policy is similar to the gift shop. In high-traffic areas of the spa/salon, social distance markers have been put in place.
