We love to pay homage to the original beginnings of the Inn. The Lake Placid Stagecoach Inn and the Town of Lake Placid New York have hosted two Olympic Winter Games, (1932 and 1980). During the 1980 Games the Inn was the “Home Base” for the CBS News Sports Team as they reported the “Miracle on Ice” USA Men’s Hockey Team’s Gold Medal Win. According to an 1878 journal The Lake Placid Stagecoach Inn was where "…. Elections were held, people gathered for sport and horse trading, drank hard cider, and sometimes other liquids of a more stimulating character."
