Ratings earned

LAKE PLACID — Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa has received the Four-Diamond Lodging Award from the American Automobile Association (AAA) for the 28th consecutive year. The View restaurant at the inn celebrates its fifth consecutive year of the AAA Four-Diamond rating.

The View is the only restaurant in Lake Placid to receive this rating. It is also one of just eight restaurants outside of New York City to earn the distinction.

"It's an honor for us to have been recognized by AAA for the last 28 years," said Ed Weibrecht, proprietor of the inn. "This rating is a reflection of the efforts and professionalism of our staff."

The inn is one of 95 hotels on the list to have held Four-Diamond status for more than 25 years. The Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa is the longest running AAA Four Diamond hotel outside of New York City in the state.

Also making the list in Lake Placid was the Whiteface Lodge, which has held a Four-Diamond rating for the last six years. Other hotels in the Adirondacks to receive the rating include The Sagamore in Bolton Landing and the Friends Lake Inn and The Fern Lodge in Chestertown.
