Hotel Description

If lake life is your thing, Placid Bay has you covered: grab your complimentary kayak, canoe, or paddleboard and set out on a leisurely adventure across the beautiful Lake Placid, right outside your hotel room door! Or perhaps it’s the mountains calling to you: we’re only minutes from Whiteface Mountain’s Olympic-worthy ski runs, or Keene Valley and its multitude of hiking opportunities!

Hiking, watersports, winter sports, or something else, when you return from your day of adventure Placid Bay Hotel’s spacious rooms give you all the high-tech features and modern amenities you’re used to—high-definition TVs with streaming services, keyless check-in, and Alexa (to help you get up on time for the next day’s escapades). Plus, with our location near downtown Lake Placid, you’ll never want for fantastic food, local culture, or boutique shopping destinations.

For an incredible getaway that offers you the smart-hotel experience while bringing together the very best of mountains, lake life, and local culture, Placid Bay Hotel is where you want to be.
