Stayed for a weekend in August to explore the Adironack region....A great location - but definitely NOTHING like the pictures - particularly those take for Jetsetter. I appreciate that summer is their busiest time (slightly odd for a winter olympics village - but nevermind) but for $444 including tax for a room per night, which does NOT include breakfast, it...

Thank you for being our guest. The pictures on Jetsetter of the rooms, restaurant and common areas are extremely accurate. However, one of the photos of the dock is an older photo and has been removed. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We have no reason to raise expectations by posting inaccurate pictures and then not be able... More

Mirror Lake Inn is located walking distance to the town of Lake Placid. No need to drive in this community. My husband and I stayed in a suite in the Lake Cottage with a large balcony and great view of the lake and the mountains. The room was well equipped and the service was splendid. Swimming in Mirror Lake was... More

First and foremost... we did not stay at the Mirror Lake Inn, although we definitely will if/when we return to Lake Placid. It's rustic and charming with a lodge feel... exposed wood beams, leather chairs and lots of little screened in porches to enjoy. We toured all the major resorts, and liked the Mirror Lake Inn atmosphere/ambiance the best. That's... More

Dear Guest, This review truly puzzles us. We have only one female bartender who is one of the friendliest and most customer oriented staff members we have. I couldn’t imagine her ever treating a guest this way. Even after reading your review all she could say was this was not me. We take all of the feedback we receive very... More

A great historic property, kept in superb shape. Many details are not overlooked. However, service is key and it falls short in professionalism with certain areas: The Cottage and the lounge next to The View. These are reasons why we prefer Lake Placid Lodge.

Thank you for being our guest and for noticing how well maintained the Inn is and our attention to details. We receive many positive comments in all of our restaurants.

This time we were a 'day' guest at Mirror Lake Inn just for the day spa, but as usual, they exceeded expectations!!! I brought my 14-yr old daughter for her first 'real' pedicure and the hot stone massage, wax dip and fabulously friendly treatment was divine! Mary and Tiffany were relaxed, professional, and typify everything we love about this resort... More

Whatever the owners of the resort are doing, they should keep doing it. My husband and son and I stayed here for a week over the 4th of July, one of their busiest weeks. The service was casual but elegant and nearly flawless. At no time, in all the encounters we had with staff, was anyone less than friendly, courteous,... More

My spouse participated in the Ironman triathlon. The Mirror Lake Inn was a perfect base for the events. My kids loved the beach and both pools. Not cheap, but well worth it! We'll be back! and the chocolate chip cookies are to die for!

Overall, we had a fantastic night at Mirror Lake Inn- I think for the money we paid, we got all the upgrades that we expected, the room was spectacular and the resort as a whole was breathtaking!
