Top 3 Resorts in Lake Placid


Lake Placid offers more than just skiing. In the winter, you can ski, snowboard, ice skate, go to the movies, or just take in the beautiful views. In the summer, you can fish, golf, miniature golf, hike, and much more. You can also shop and/or dine in either season. And let’s not forget spring and autumn. Spring is beautiful because of warming weather and blooming trees. Autumn is beautiful because of changing leaves and comfortably crisp air. The three resorts covered below offer even more. If a resort is on this list, it can be considered one of the best resorts in Lake Placid.

1. Golden Arrow Lake Resort


What stands out most about the Golden Arrow Lake Resort is that it’s a green hotel. This refers to the hotel being environmentally-friendly, not the color of the hotel. The Golden Arrow proves that it’s possible to run a successful business without being wasteful. The views here are also stellar considering the hotel is right on Mirror Lake. However, only some of the rooms offer lakeside views. If you’re unable to get a lakeside room, don’t be too upset; you will still have a private balcony and access to a private beach. When you’re on the beach, feel free to take a complimentary boat ride. The Golden Arrow Lake Resort also has the best food in Lake Placid. Other hotel amenities include an indoor pool, a gym, a Jacuzzi, racquetball, and free WiFi. Every room comes with a refrigerator and a coffee maker. Pets are allowed.

2. Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa


The views are nice at the Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa, but this resort is more known for its spa than its views. Just like the Golden Arrow Lake Resort has the best food in Lake Placid, the Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa has the best spa in Lake Placid. In addition to the spa, other amenities include a beach, a pool, a lounge, a concierge, and a 24-hour front desk. The food here is also toward the top of the list. The rooms here are large and the overall décor is pretty. The atmosphere is more country than most other Lake Placid hotels. AAA has rated this as a four-diamond resort.

3. Crowne Plaza Resort & Golf Club


It might seem as though food is a common theme here, but these three resorts all offer incredible dining experiences. When it comes to the food at the Crowne Plaza Resort & Golf Club, the Veranda and Boathouse restaurants can give any restaurant in town a run for its money. The décor here is nice, but the views are even more impressive since this property sits at the top of a hill. Like the two resorts listed above, the Crowne Plaza Resort & Golf Club has a beach. Boat rentals are available. Other amenities include an indoor pool, a fitness center, a business center, a bar that’s always alive, and golf courses. Yes, golf courses, as in plural. All of the rooms are spacious and most of them have hot tubs.

If you appreciate naturally beauty, strongly consider taking a vacation to Lake Placid. When you’re outdoors, the fresh air is invigorating. When you’re indoors, you feel like a kid in amusement park. These resorts offer so many amenities and such great food that you never want to leave.
