This week’s adventures in the Adirondacks lead me to Lake Placid, NY. Everyone kind of knows the basic things associated with LP: very cold weather, the 1932 & 1980 Olympics, and the popular attraction, Whiteface Mountain. I loved having an opportunity to explore more of the area and see some sites worth sharing with you.
As soon as we hit Adirondack Park it began snowing and it made for a beautiful ride. We made a pit stop on the way at Schroon River on the way up to Lake Placid.
The first evening I dined at Liquids and Solids at the Handlebar. An incredibly quaint spot equipped with an antique wood burning stove to keep you cozy, and one of the most unique locally-based dining menus I’ve seen in a while.
At a balmy 12 degrees, it was still a gorgeous second day in the Village of Lake Placid. A hearty breakfast at Dancing Bears, a trip to the Lake Placid Pub & Brewery and a leisurely drive around Mirror Lake and the surrounding area made for a great afternoon. #PerfectDayADK
We closed out the second evening with a great experience at Mirror Lake Inn. The interior of the hotel is divine. As soon as you step in the inn you are transported into another time.
Not to mention, the service and food were incredible. I have no idea what they did to these Oyster Rockefeller, but they are amazing. “Baked on the half-shell with spinach-herb cream sauce, pernod, and buttered bread crumbs.” Yup, go get you some.
Until next time, ADK.
