Lake Placid Lodge

Lake Placid Lodge enjoys a gorgeous lakeside setting in New York State's famed Adirondacks. Winter pursuits include downhill skiing at Whiteface Mountain, as well as more leisurely snow-shoeing, cross-country skiing and ice fishing (for which you need a NY State fishing license). Then there's the village of Lake Placid, the site of the 1980 Winter Olympics, featuring ski jumping, bobsledding and ice skating at the 1980 Olympic Oval. Accommodations include the cozy main lodge, lakeside suites and rustic-luxe cabins, all with wood-burning stone fireplaces, gorgeous views and unique Adirondack furnishings. After a day out in the cold, guests can warm up at house restaurant, Artisans, overlooking the lake, or at Maggie's Pub, a cozy lounge offering chess, billiards and enticing après-ski drinks. For the ultimate nightcap, join the snow bonfire by the lake, complete with s'mores and hot cocoa.
