We escaped the heat of New York in the summer and went to Lake Placid. We chose the Placid Bay inn based on their website and we were pleasantly surprised that what is basically a motel, can be so romantic. The rooms are what you expect from a good motel, but the real charm is the location on the lake. You can take one of their kayaks and peddle to the lake. The terrain is well groomed and looks very nice. Also the pool is not bad at all.
The only downside was the somewhat rude housekeeping staff. What part of "not now" didnt you understand when you knocked on my door?
I would come back here in a heartbeat and recommend the Placid Bay Inn to anyone not requiring Four Season luxury.
