Great cottage (as advertised), great lake view (too bad it was frozen during our stay), friendly owners.
WiFi present, but very slow and unstable.

A beautiful location with stunning views of Whiteface Mtn stretching skyward above Lake Placid. The property is meticulously managed and graced with lovely flowers in season and tasteful decor year round-all one needs for a relaxing stay in the Adirondacks!

We had a wonderful time at Placid Bay. The kitchenette area was great to have as we ate in breakfast and some lunches. The owner was very helpful and accomadating when we needed extra towels and pillows. The beds were fairly new and comfy. The place was very clean and decorated nice.

I really liked "Placid Bay Inn". The location was perfectly convenient! Especially we were enchanted with a spectacular view on Whiteface mountain and Lake Placid. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They gave us all travel information we needed. The room was splendid! Very nice and comfortable design. Will definitely come back!

We found Placid Bay Inn online, and our experience there was great. Our room was comfortable, efficient and immaculate and Denise and Tyra were very friendly and informative. The buildings are 'classic', but all have been recently renovated and are nicely decorated, but the appearance from the street, while pretty enough, doesn't do it justice. There is beautiful back garden facing Paradox Bay with gorgeous open views of Whiteface Mountain across Lake Placid and canoes available to take for a paddle on the lake. There is ample room to sit quietly in Adirondack chairs and read, or for kids to play on the lawn, and there's also a lovely swimming pool! It's an easy walk to Main Street, or take the free town shuttle that stops outside and services the whole town. The price can't be beat, we will definitely return!
