Falling for Lake Placid Lodge
The sense of tranquility that pervades the Lake Placid Lodge is palpable. When I arrived late on a sun-drenched Friday afternoon in June, the place was a hub of inactivity: I met a foursome whose ambitions for the evening extended to gin-and-tonics taken in Adirondack chairs on the patio, and two other guests who were wrapping up a few hours of quiet fishing from the dock. Yes, the clientele may have arrived with the intention of swimming, hiking, golfing, or, in the winter, skiing, but the property’s magnificent, four-acre lakeside setting has an almost narcotic effect. The scene has a way of lulling guests into a pleasant inertia.
