Awards received

LAKE PLACID — Before a group of about 150 Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa employees, James Phelps, president and CEO of AAA Northway, presented the Lake Placid resort with its 29th consecutive AAA Four-Diamond Award. The View Restaurant at the inn was similarly presented by Phelps with its sixth consecutive AAA Four Diamond designation.

Only one other property in the state (located in Manhattan) has maintained the AAA Four Diamond Award as long as Mirror Lake Inn.

Only five percent of AAA’s 30,000 rated lodges achieve AAA Four Diamond status, and there are fewer than 100 nationwide that have held the Four Diamonds as long as 29 years. In addition, just two percent of 29,000 rated restaurants have the Four Diamonds.

The View and Mirror Lake Inn offer the only combination of Four Diamond lodging and dining in Lake Placid.

Owners Ed and Lisa Weibrecht live nearby and have overseen the Inn since 1976 with their daily, hands-on approach. Currently, there are 11 members of the staff with more than 20 years of experience at Mirror Lake Inn. There are 18 staff with more than 10 years and 17 with more than five years.
