It's well in advance but we are coming from Australia for a honeymoon so need to be prepared. We are spending a majority of our time in NYC however want to head "upstate" for a romantic cabin stay for a few nights. A bit of research shows that Lake Placid seems to be the place with the Olympic site viewing, something different for us Summer Olympic folk, and the novelty of deep snow. The Mirror Lake Inn looks like a great stay as well.
1. What's the preferred method of transport from NYC to Lake Placid ? Is it easier to fly, or hire a car and take a road trip ? Are the roads icy that time of year.
2. Are there other notable romantic cosy accommodations in the area ? Somewhere private where we can then just walk down the road to the local shops for the hot chocolates/warm liqueurs.
3. We are certainly not ski bunnies so apart from the Olympic experience, what other sites are there to fill in those quieter moments ?
Look forward to the results
