Having not been to Lake Placid or the glorious Mirror Lake Inn resort grounds, we had to take advantage of all the offerings! We arrived late in the afternoon on Wednesday, June 19, and were able to savor a dinner at The Cottage Café, which features the Cottage Chili recipe in the Ski Town Soups cookbook. I had a bright, crisp salad of arugula, heirloom tomatoes, goat cheese and lemon basil vinaigrette. It was absolutely divine, and especially tasty with the baked brie cheese plate!
In the morning, I walked around Mirror Lake and gazed at the beautiful lake cabins. Then, I met the family on the private docks for Mirror Lake Inn guests. We paddle-boated and kayaked through the crisp morning air and atop the smooth-as-glass lake. By 10am, we were at the heated outdoor pool and by noon we were back at the sandy beach and jumping in the lake. It was a perfect way to spend a day of enjoying the gorgeous property, after a few days of driving in the car.
Next, I looked forward to the late afternoon of meeting-and-greeting guests at The Cottage Restaurant of Mirror Lake Inn, in which The Cottage was providing samples of their sumptuous chili. And, what a view I had! It was wonderful to meet soup-fans and ski-lovers, alike!
Finally, after a busy day, my family and I were able to stretch-out in our spacious family suite, called the Fox Den, and relax in all the Mirror Lake Inn splendor.
