We will be staying in the Lake Placid area for about a week this July. We are acting as logistical support for a group of Boy Scouts, who will be backpacking and canoeing in the beautiful Adirondacks. We will be shuttling cars, making food drops and providing medical evacuation, if necessary. Since we will not be going into the back country, we would like to know if anyone can recommend a decent, yet not too expensive place to stay for 5 or 6 nights. We do not have to stay right in Lake Placid, although this will be our base of operations. We would like to find a place within no more than 10 - 15 miles if possible. Thank you for your advice and guidance.
