“great place, i would stay again.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed in the cottage named "The Mallard" and enjoyed it very much.
It was clean, and decorated in an Adirondak style, rustic but modern. With 2 young boys, 7 1/2 and 6 years old, it was convenient to stay in a separate cottage so we did not disturb other guests.
We canoed every morning, the inn is right on Lake Placid, before heading out to see the sights. Hiking in the forest and mountains, seeing the Olymic venues, or visiting museums or shopping downtown were all convenient from this location.
the owner was helpful with suggestions for dining, things to do and see.

Liked best: when the kids saw it, they said, "this is awesome!", the dock w/canoes, the size and interior design.
Liked least: the a/c didn't seem to work half way through the week

“What a Wonderful Experience!!!”

We stayed in this cottage, the Mallard, even before 2010 several times. It is a treat. The view of the lake and Whiteface is incredible as you rise in the morning from your bed or any other time you sit on the comfortable couch inside, out on the porch, or at the picnic table outside. The inside is functional and beautiful at the same time. Whatever season you arrive makes no difference, you will enjoy your visit. You can also feed the ducks that come to greet you. The grounds are beautifully cared for and special inside decorations and photos make the total environment relaxing and nourishing. Denise takes excellent care of you and also has information to help you get around, enjoy the area and find excellent places to dine as you wish. We have also made Room 10 our own and stay there often. The space and amenities are great and if you wish, you can also prepare your own meals. This is also true of the Mallard. We return there as often as we can to restore ourselves. We highly recommend staying at Placid Bay Inn.
