Friday Evening: Check Into Your Luxurious Weekend Getaway and Grab a Bite for Dinner

Check into your weekend getaway on Mirror Lake! The Haus on Mirror Lake offers spectacular amenities and unbeatable views of the lake and surrounding Adirondack Park. Your apartment-style fully equipped kitchen allows for you to whip up some snacks for you and your significant other if you so desire. Otherwise, there are plenty of dining options within a stone’s throw of the hotel.

One of those options is Jimmy’s 21 Lake Side Italian Restaurant. If you’re in the mood for fine Italian cuisine, this is the place to be. Choose from their mouthwatering selection for an exquisite meal to kick off your weekend stay in Lake Placid.

Saturday Morning: Pick Up Coffee and Breakfast for Your Morning Walk

Just across the street is the Bluesberry Bakery. Stop in on your Saturday morning to pick up some coffee and croissants to kickstart your day. Their pastry case always looks delicious so make a mental note to stop by again during your trip to pick up some delectable desserts such as homemade tarts, cheesecakes, pies, and cookies.

After fueling up for the day, take a stroll around the downtown area. There are plenty of shops to look around in. In addition to the copious amounts of shopping, there is also the Mirror Lake Parkette to stroll around.

Saturday Afternoon: Set Sail on Mirror Lake

While the sun is still high in the sky, soak up the rays on Mirror Lake! Mirror Lake is located in the heart of Lake Placid’s downtown area. Mirror Lake Boat Rentals are the “freshest boats in town” and provide stylish transit on a gorgeous lake. You can also rent smaller water crafts such as kayaks, paddleboards, and canoes. Just don’t forget the sunscreen!

Saturday Evening: Indulge in a Delicious Upscale Meal

Sit down to an elegant meal at Upstairs Grill Steak and Seafood. The restaurant is located on Main Street, directly across from Mirror Lake. Choose between beautiful cuts of steak, exquisite seafood, or delicious chicken or veal dishes.

After your meal, grab a cup or cone of ice cream at Emma’s Lake Placid Creamery. Get their signature flavor, Maple Creme soft serve ice cream swirled in a dish or try one of their many hard ice cream flavors, including Chocolate Moose Tracks.

Sunday Morning: Pick Up Some Breakfast Goodies Before Departing Your Wonderful Weekend at Lake Placid

Treat yourself (and your significant other) to a tasty brunch on your Sunday morning. There’s no better place to do so than "the breakfast club, etc." It’s located directly on Main Street and just a short walk from The Haus on Mirror Lake. Their menu showcases a wonderful selection of breakfast sandwiches, griddle items, smoothie bowls, and eggs any way you’d like them.

There are even more activities and sites to see in Lake Placid. A weekend is hardly enough. Be sure to come back to Lake Placid soon!
