A luxurious Relais & Châteaux lodge with stunning lake views in New York's Adirondack Mountains, and the only hotel on Lake Placid

Have a placid Lake Placid stay at a luxurious Relais & Châteaux property in the Adirondacks. The Arts and Crafts-style Lake Placid Lodge is the perfect place to rest up, thanks to its wide porches, wine cellar and hand-laid stone hearths – 50, to be exact. Once a Gilded Age great camp, the 2015 Travel + Leisure World’s Best and Condé Nast Traveller Readers’ Choice awardee has lost nothing in hospitality since then, and because the staff takes care of everything, you may as well relax – by the fire, on the waterfront…

Then again, the surrounding two-time Olympic city is known for being an international sports capital (and not only in winter, either), so don’t just sit around, gazing at Whiteface’s reflection in the still waters. Get up and have an adventure – whether skiing that mountain, or trying canoeing, fishing or tennis in warmer weather. Year-round, there’s an Olympic museum to see, plus the acclaimed Wild Center. Just don’t stay out past evening – that’s when the Lodge hosts its daily bonfire and marshmallow roast.
