Three of us (two girls and a guy) splashed out and spent three nights here in September 2010. The price range is high for what we can usually manage, but we wanted something special - and we got it. Lovely rooms, beautiful view of Mirror Lake, and extremely warm and friendly staff who did everything possible to meet our needs.
Example: there was no coffee maker or kettle in the room (because the inn provides it FOC in the lobby - very cosy and nice). We asked for one anyway because we wanted to make tea in our room, and within five minutes three different staff - count 'em, three! - showed up with various versions of kettles, coffee makers and hot water for both our rooms, plus an assortment of teas.
Another example: I have a bad back and needed a certain type of chair in the dining room, which I asked for on the first day, but which was waiting for me on the next two days. Nice individual touches like that.
The staff are very, very friendly and there is none of that snobbishness that you get with some five-star inns and resorts. Location is perfect: on a rise overlooking the lake, 5 minutes from great shopping in one of our favourite places in N. America: Lake Placid.
Suggestion: enjoy some of your meals across the road at the Inn's cosy pub, The Cottage. The food's quite good, it's very informal and is more relaxing than the Inn's dining room, where the food is just OK, but the atmosphere is a bit stiff.
