Property has been updated but rooms are small. Self check in /check out was easy. Pool, paddle boards, kayaks and a nice fire pit onsite. The rooms were furnished with a Keurig but no breakfast options were available in the lobby.

I believe this hotel is under new owners and they are very kind. This hotel was just what we needed for a one night stay in Lake Placid. You can walk to town or you could drive. What I liked best about this stay was the access to Mirror Lake. They have kayaks, canoes, and paddle boards for guests to use as they'd like. They have Adirondack chairs to relax on on the lake too. The only complaint I have is that the room was very very small but it served its purpose. It was clean, easily accessible with self check in and close to everything. Excellent stay!

The Mallard cabin we rented was a nice space for a get away. Enjoyed sitting on deck in the evening. Smores on the fire pit. Paddleboards, canoes and kayaks were shared by guests and that worked really well. Beautiful spot on the lake.

Facilities very clean; appeared new. Full pot coffee maker and toaster were greatly appreciated. Room was a little small, TV was limited, and view of lake was largely obstructed by a spruce tree.
