Conde Nast Traveler readers enjoy Lake Placid activities and MLI
If you haven't seen page 88 in this month's Conde Nast Traveler magazine, here's what we saw and want to share with our loyal guests who have ranked us so highly.
"And who would have thought that a ski hotel almost 2,000 miles east of Colorado would rank among the top 5? But Lake Placid's luxe Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa (#5) did just that.
"The historic inn's three restaurants plate the best food in the Adirondacks - if you have to choose, make a reservation at The View to dine on locally sourced American fare overlooking picturesque Mirror Lake (518-523-2544; doubles from $350).
"The Upstate New York town of #Lake Placid is relatively isolated, but has a bucolic charm, and those with a need for speed can hitch a ride up Whiteface Mountain for the greatest vertical drop this side of the Rockies.
"There's also Cloudspin and Skyward, the runs that hosted the
the men's and women's downhill races in 1980.
"Around here Olympic pride is felt at every turn: Lake Placid
was the site of both the 1932 and 1980 Winter Games, and
2010 Super G bronze medalist Andrew Weibrecht cut his teeth
"Weibrecht's parents own the Mirror Lake Inn, and they'll keep
his medal safe at the front desk (photo at right) as he makes
a go for gold in Sochi."
