LAKE PLACID - In a year that has seen the Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa in Lake Placid receive the AAA Four Diamond Award of Excellence for the 28th consecutive year, Wine Spectator Magazine has issued the resort its Award of Excellence for the 13th straight year.
In addition, International Business Times ranked Lake Placid second in its list of 10 Best Lake Vacations in the U.S. In the same breath, IBT recommended staying at the Mirror Lake Inn.
"These endorsements tell us that our employees are doing their utmost to deliver a quality experience to Mirror Lake Inn guests. I am very proud," said hotel owner Ed Weibrecht. "The Wine Spectator honor is a ringing achievement, once again, for our staff at the The View Restaurant, while the IB Times ranking is wonderful for Lake Placid's place among summer destinations and our history of satisfying travelers with discriminating tastes. Kudos to our staff for making us stand out once again."
The View Restaurant was recently honored with its fifth consecutive AAA Four Diamond Award. This enables the hotel and restaurant to achieve the distinction of being Lake Placid's only Four Diamond combination of lodging and dining.
"The Wine Spectator Award is one of the benchmarks of upscale restaurants," said The View Restaurant Manager Katie Welch. "Our dining room staff was quite proud to receive the news of this accolade, and it reinforces our commitment to the wine connoisseur who wishes to dine with us. We will continue to choose the finest vintages to meet the expectations of Mirror Lake Inn guests."
