I have traveled to Lake Placid for over 30 years and in my travels, I have stayed at the most lavish hotel and the most family oriented hub. I love the town as it awakens everything beautiful within and brings to life being one with nature. The people, pubs, restaurants and boutiques all offer the same warmth and good nature that one would hope for in escaping for a weekend away from the city life and the havoc that comes with it to a small town for refuge and relaxation.
I walked into the Paradox Lodge and was immediately greeted by the in keepers who were cordial and welcoming. The refreshing scent of flowers and herbs permeated the air and as I stepped into the main building and discovered the sitting room and decor, I was immediately transported into a bohemian eclectic atmosphere that kept my eyes busy for quite some time. There was so much to see, touch, admire and view. The antiques and paintings, the statues and books, the sitting area so cozy and warm.. everything that one can dream of when visiting a B & B without any hesitation at all lay right before my eyes and I was fully transported to a very special place and time.
Our hosts invited us to view premises, the private beach with the quiet private garden and take a tour of our room. To our surprise, we were upgraded as other guests had to change their reservations and so we were treated to a spacious and warm room filled again with eclectic artwork, furniture, antiques and probably the most luxurious bathrobes that I have ever worn. The details of the shower, towels, amenities and cleanliness were ideal and I can't explain how exceptional the linens and bedding was. I slept like a baby and had a very difficult time awaking in the early am hours.
The breakfasts were delectable and unique as our host is a creative and crafty chef. He prides himself in making his own vanilla and many other delicious ingredients from scratch to ensure an awakening fit for a king and queen.
I just called the Inn to thank my hosts for a most memorable stay. Not only did they facilitate our needs, they were outstanding in their suggestions of hiking trails and places of interest that we had not visited in the past. I thank them for their kindness, hospitality and promise to return, sometime in the very near future and would highly recommend the Paradox Lodge to anyone who is searching for the best kept secret in the Adirondacks!
