Looking for a weekend getaway destination this Spring or Summer? One of the world's best is right in your backyard.

The Mirror Lake in has been named one of the '10 Most Beautiful Lakeside Hotels in the World' by Conde Nast Traveler. Based on these photos from the Inn's Facebook page, it is easy to see why!

Here is what the article had to say about the Inn:

Built in 1883 as a private home, this Adirondack Mountain getaway was voted by our readers as #1 Resort in New York state. It’s the perfect mix of modern and rustic-chic, with expansive Mirror Lake views from every window and hospitality to boot (guests get homemade chocolate-chip cookies upon check-in). Dining is impressive, too: its award-winning View restaurant serves excellent seasonal cuisine that’s sourced exclusively from local farmers and the resort’s own gardens.

Ya gotta love the fact that one of the top 10 Lakeside destinations on planet Earth is only a 2.5 hour drive from Albany. over the years I have been to several Adirondack locales, but never here or to the Lake Placid area in general. I think a little weekend getaway may be in order for the Jeff clan in the near future!
