Lake Placid Lodge: Pure Adirondacks, Pure Bliss

Brilia/ February 12, 2020/ Travel

The sweet, intoxicating fragrance of cedar and balsam pine is the first thing that hits you when you arrive at Lake Placid Lodge, a beloved 19th century mountain camp transformed into a lodge of unparalleled rustic splendor.

Lake Placid is the jewel of the Adirondacks, clear, cold in winter, strewn with leafy islands waiting to be explored in summer. This is a majestic hotel built by hand in the Arts & Crafts tradition, perfectly at home in its lakeside setting.  There are thirteen sumptuous rooms and seventeen luxurious cabins at the water’s edge.  The woods and water enfold the Lodge, the sun warms its wide stone porches.  Each room has a fireplace at its heart and wilderness visible through its diamond-paned windows.  Above all, there is comfort and welcome, wherever you go.

Tucked in the mountains of the Adirondacks, one comes upon this exquisite Relais & Chateaux property, a nostalgic sliver of pleasures from yesteryear.  It is here that the seasons are experienced at its purest.  An authentic autumn hideaway, spend crisp days and enchanted nights curled in front of a crackling bonfire sipping hot cocoa before sinking into a cocoon of fairytale bedding.

Corporate Retreats

Designed to be a retreat from the ordinary, corporate gatherings at Lake Placid Lodge commence for you and your guests in the fireplace-lit lobby with a glass of champagne and go from there through endless adventures and activities that the Olympic Region of these mountains offer.  The Lodge’s farm-to-table kitchen is glad to create menus hat will delight and inspire.  They offer full meeting and activity coordination services. From planning through execution, experienced meeting specialists are on hand to anticipate and accommodate you every step of the way.
