Lake Placid, New York: Art Devlin's Inn
For those who grew up on ABC's "Wide World of Sports" in the 1960's and 70's, there's only one place to stay when visiting Lake Placid: Art Devlin's Olympic Motor Inn. It's a cozy little place right on the main street of Lake Placid.
Devlin was ABC's expect on ski jumping, and he was known for his intelligent, informed and candid comments. That's not surprising, since he was one of the best ski jumpers in American history.
Devlin passed away a while ago, but his trophies are still on display in the lobby. And he had a bunch of them.
We still remember you, Art.
