Did you know, the village of Lake Placid actually sits on Mirror Lake, not its namesake lake?
As its name suggests, Mirror Lake is a calm lake that at many times perfectly reflects the village surrounding it. No motorized boats are allowed in the lake, making it the perfect spot to kayak, paddle board and swim in the warmer months. Mirror lake is also home to swim portion of Ironman Lake Placid (the longest running Ironman Triathlon in the continental US!)
During the winter months, the lake freezes, making it the perfect spot for skating! Here at the Golden Arrow, we keep a rink plowed for pick-up games. The village also plows, so you can skate a loop around the lake!
When the ice is thick enough, you can also take a dog sled ride or go down the toboggan chute!
