Park Your Car and "LEAF” it Package

This is a straight-up press release, but I thought this was a cool enough package to just post it anyway.

Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa is pleased to announce the Park Your Car and "LEAF” it Package, especially created for the green-minded foliage seekers this fall. With ever-increasing gas prices as well as a nationwide concern about carbon footprints, guests are encouraged to park their car and leave it, literally, for the weekend.

The inn, which is located directly on picturesque Mirror Lake and five minutes walk from downtown Lake Placid, created the Park Your Car and "LEAF” It Package to encourage guests to enjoy the natural beauty of the Adirondacks authentically, not from the inside of their car. With complimentary canoes and kayaks, walking distance hiking trails, a 2.6 mile sidewalk-lined lake to walk around as well as a lively downtown, guests just have to walk out the inn's front door to participate in a variety of activities. For those preferring to move a little less, take in the view from one of the inn's strategically placed Adirondack chairs, book a massage in the award-winning spa and/or enjoy your meals from one of the three onsite restaurants, all offering delicious cuisine and sweeping views of the lake and Adirondack high peaks.

Enjoy all that the Mirror Lake Inn and Lake Placid has to offer this fall without burning a gallon gas. In addition, for guests who manage to leave their car all weekend (scout's honor) a special thank you will be presented upon departure: a basket filled with the inn's signature chocolate chip cookies and ice cold milk for the ride home. The Park Your Car and "LEAF” it Package is available September 1 through October 30 and is $245 per couple per night. It includes accommodations in a classic room, a hearty Adirondack breakfast and a $50 credit towards a spa treatment or meal at one of the inn's three restaurants.

The resort was recently chosen by Travel+ Leisure magazine as one of the "Top 100 Hotels: Continental U.S. and Canada” in their August 2008 World's Best Awards issue. In January 2008, the resort was named to Conde Nast Traveler's Gold List as one of the "World's Best Places to Stay.” The resort was also chosen as one of 150 hotels in the Northern Hemisphere to be named to National Geographic Traveler's 2008 "Stay List,” in which hotels are recognized for their conscientious approach to resort living and their relationship with the community and the environment. For nine consecutive years, the resort's AAA Four Diamond restaurant, The View, has been awarded Wine Spectator's Dining Guide Award of Excellence, and in 2006, it won the Award of Distinction in Wine Enthusiast's restaurant awards issue. It is a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World. For more information on the inn call (518) 523-2544 or check out
