My wife and I were lucky to get a room on the Saturday of Labor Day weekend. The staff were extremely nice and helpful, gave great recommendations on where to hike and eat and general useful information about Lake Placid. The rooms were very clean with a great view of the bay and White face Mt. The location was great...

We loved staying here and would definitely return. Upon check in we met the nicest person ever who gave us tons of local information for our trip. The canoes out back are really fun and available to all guests. The views from our window were spectacular as we had a direct, unobstructed view of Whiteface. The location is very central...

We got a room near the street. We closed all the windows, turned on the AC, and solved the traffic-noise issue. Walking distance to Main Street, near restaurants. We went canoeing (included) early in the morning .... the lake was so serene and peaceful. We watched the sun go up. Our room was just enough size for the 3 of...

Rooms are small, but clean and comfortable. Gorgeous views of the lake and Whiteface Mountain. The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. The pool chairs were uncomfortable, but the pool itself was clean and well maintained. Love the free canoes and adirondack chairs for relaxing! The grounds are beautifully landscaped.

We are pleased you had such an enjoyable stay at the Placid Bay Inn. Our Standard Rooms, which are small, are our most economical accommodations and the perfect choice for travelers on a budget. Our Kitchenette Rooms/Suites are much more spacious and definitely a great choice, if the few extra dollars is not an issue. No matter which room you...

Beautiful flowers on property. Saw hummingbirds darting among them! Beautiful views of Lake Placid. Very serene setting--you can see why it's named Lake Placid! Yet at the same time the property is also very conveniently located.

We spent 3 nights here in a kitchenette with Queen bed. Great location, close to everything. Beautiful back area right on the lake. Mini-kitchen nicely equipped. Only issue was lighting.
