Close your eyes and imagine a beautiful, serene wilderness — rolling hills, high peaks, sparkling lakes, and clear, fresh air. In the midst of all that beauty, Lake Placid is a classic mountain town.

Completely Placid

Lake Placid is an opportunity to enjoy fresh air and majestic views. Spring brings fresh leaves to the trees and Mirror Lake shakes off the ice to sparkle once again. As summer warms up, nature puts on a lush, vibrant show. Waterfalls are in full flow and birds are in abundance in their summer home.

Nature is never far from downtown. The region is home to hundreds of miles of trails that are perfect for a quiet walk in the woods and lakes and ponds ideal for a scenic paddle, plus locally-loved and locally-owned restaurants and shops.

Olympic-sized scenery

From Mount Jo to Lake Placid the lake, Henry's Woods to Mount Van Hoevenberg, Lake Placid is legendary for big views and big scenery, but with a charming, small town twist, which is why we call it home.
