If your idea of a vacation includes quiet mornings by a lake-side listening to a loon's haunting call - Lake Placid Resort has it. If your idea of a vacation includes being on the edge of control as you thunder down the Olympic track in a Bobsled on wheels - they've got that too. For many, Lake Placid is thought of as a winter destination, but those who experience their summers will quickly realize how diverse this mountain village is.
The Resort hotel is situated in the heart of the world-famous Olympic village of Lake Placid, New York. From its vantage point high above the quaint international shops and restaurants of Main Street, the hotel offers breathtaking views of the region's lakes and majestic mountain ranges. Spanning over 1,000 acres of some of the most pristine land in the Adirondacks, the Lake Placid Resort is rich in history with an unmatched range of amenities.
All 199 hotel rooms provide the convenience of a coffee maker and a refrigerator freezer. In addition to their traditional accommodations (rooms with 2 double beds), they also have available chalets and rooms with jacuzzis and fireplaces. Other hotel amenities include Arturo's Ristorante, the Birch Bar, indoor pool, whirlpool, sauna, tennis courts, and fitness room.
The Lake Placid Resort offers 45 holes of spectacular golf in the heart of the Adirondacks.
The Links course is the only fully irrigated course in Lake Placid. It was designed in 1909 by the renowned Scottish architect Seymour Dunn. Dunn remained true to his origins, and the Links course represents Scottish Links style golf at its best with bunker- laden fairways, native fescue, and large undulating greens. The Links Course received a 4-Star rating from Golf Digests 2002 Places to Play!
The Mountain course was laid out in 1910 by Alexander H. Findlay who immigrated to the U.S. from Scotland in the early 1880's and became one of the pioneers of golf in America. In 1931 the course was remodeled by Alister MacKenzie, designer of AUGUSTA NATIONAL - home of "The Masters". With smaller greens and more tree-lined fairways, this course begs for the straight shot. The engaging design takes full advantage of the scenic vistas and will appeal to players of all levels. It is quite simply the essence of "mountain golf"..
