“Wonderful Family Vacation Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

I just came back from a four-day stay at the Mirror Lake Inn. Our group consisted of 4 adults and 5 teenagers, and we all had a great time. From the moment we arrived there, everyone who worked there was pleasant, helpful and eager to ensure that we had a positive experience. We had four rooms and they all had breathtaking views of the lake and the holiday lights - 4 days of on and off snow did not hurt in terms of creating a winter wonderland. Definitely sign up for the breakfast plan. It was delicious, fresh, and as fast as you wanted it to be. We had dinner at The View one night and would have eaten there more often but we wanted to check out other restaurants in the area. Cookies in the lobby and tea served in the afternoon were another nice, cozy touch. After eating dinner on New Year's Eve at another restaurant, we came back for champagne in the lobby, balloons, hats, etc. They think of everything here! We will definitely be back!

Nice place. Oak paneling in the library after a lovely breakfast to read the papers.Lovely view from the restaurant across the lake. Good food and a relaxing time. We went in early winter and it was pituresque.

Perfect way to prepare for the holidays...a mini getaway ...relax in the spa, swim indoors while watching the snow fall, dream by the fire,sip champagne in the bar overlooking the lake...if you prefer the outdoors, strap on your snowshoes or head to the ski slopes.

I just wrote a review about the bad experience we had at The View restaurant in this hotel. Therefore my overall rating for the hotel could never be more than Average.
The hotel itself is an old charmer; loads of history, well maintained, beautiful view, very nice and helpful staff. But... at this level (four diamonds, paying over $ 600 for a good size suite) one can expect a little more. Old charm is nice if it comes to the classic high quality furniture but the bathroom in our suite was in need of an update; at this level I do not want to climb into a (true, huge) jacuzzi to take a shower under a fixed shower head. Showers should be thermostat controlled as standard at this level. Although it is winter I did notice the old style air-conditioning
I realize the dilemma for the owners but I think they need to bring the hotel up to standard if they want to maintain the high ratings.

My wife and I stayed at Mirror Lake Inn during the long Thanksgiving weekend and everything was wonderful! Our room had a beautiful view of the lake with a fireplace and balcony. The hotel is very cozy and the staff was very helpful and professional. It is perfectly located within a easy walk to town so once you get there you can park the car and walk. Thanksgiving dinner was very good and plentiful, cant wait to go back next year.

We can't praise the Mirror Lake Inn enough.

Great location, great rooms, great food. However, a recent incident made me realize how terrific the Mirror Lake Inn is. When I realized that I had lost a favorite shirt months ago I called several possible places where I could have lost it. No reply. Then, returning home one night I found my shirt sent UPS to me in Canada. I thanked the housekeeping managers who had sent it but can't praise the Inn enough. Most hotels, resorts and inns don't care, don't have a real lost and found and if so you know you will never see what you lost.again. These managers also keep the rooms and common areas in the Inn impeccable.

We've traveled all over the world and we now realize that one of the best places to stay is so close to home - the Mirror Lake Inn, very high quality and some great specials.
