About Mirror Lake Inn Resort & SpaThe picturesque Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York are the backdrop for the charming Mirror Lake Inn, which is located in the Olympic village of Lake Placid. Built in 1883 as a private home and opened to guests in 1924, the Inn retains an old-world feel, with dark mahogany paneling, antique stained-glass windows, and a stuffed moose head over a stone fireplace. The spa also has a comfortable, yet elegant ambiance and features special "spa sanctuaries" for guests waiting for treatments.
