Recreation doesn't stop for the winter in Lake Placid. The host of the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympics has plenty of winter sports spots and Olympic venues in the Adirondack village, leading National Geographic Traveler to name it one of Best Winter Trips 2012.

But getaways to the New York town don't have to be high adventure; visitors can opt to spend their time on skis at Whiteface or in front of a cozy fire in their room at Golden Arrow Lakeside Resort, overlooking the appropriately named Mirror Lake. Stay for one night ($199 or $269, depending on when you travel) in a specialty room, such as the warm-toned Haystack, which boasts a king-size bed, an oversized whirlpool, and sparkling lake views. Or, check out the Wright Peak, with wrought-iron chandeliers and views of both the mountains and the Olympic Village. All specialty rooms have fireplaces and pillow-top mattresses, and Escapees will have an included bottle of wine and in-room movie.

Wake up to breakfast in bed, perhaps cinnamon-brioche French toast with whipped orange butter, hearty steak and eggs, or eggs Benedict draped in lush hollandaise. When you do get out from under the covers, strap on some ice skates or cross-country skis. Then, make your way to the Goose Watch Winery, where you'll be treated to a tasting of their creations, which include Viogners, Rieslings, Chambourcins, and Cabernets.

Later, take a romantic dog sled ride before sinking into the adults-only hot tub and dining on locally sourced fare at the resort's Generations Restaurant.

  • "This resort sits right in the heart of Lake Placid and directly on Mirror Lake. Most of the rooms have balconies, and the views (on the lakeside) are great."
