Exactly 80 years ago this week, Lake Placid, NY was the site of the first winter Olympics ever held in the United States (1932); and the Olympics returned here 32 years later (1980). The picturesque lakefront town of Lake Placid, with Whiteface Mountain as the backdrop is absolutely gorgeous. And the fact that the area is filled with activities from the Olympics adds an extra dimension of fun. (Luge, bobsled run, ski jump facility, etc. are the gifts that the Olympics left behind for locals and Lake Placid visitors to enjoy). The Ski House of the Day is this Lake Placid log lodge called the "Bear Cub Loj."
With its beautiful updated Adirondack styling, a large stone fireplace and log furniture and decor, this house is an inviting skiers retreat.
There's even a fireplace in the bedroom, in front a cozy log bed.
With a view of the ski jump, it's unmistakable that this Adirondack log "loj" is in Lake Placid, home of the winter Olympics - twice.
