After about 8 months with no visit to the Lake Placid Lodge, I start to get itchy. Gotta go back ... soon! Greeted more than warmly (but discretely), great amenities in the room, comfortable ambience throughout, food reliable (but not great). Only negative is the piped in music in the dining room ... quiet instrumental (of any ilk) would be...

this is the best most romantic hotel I have ever stayed in and I have been all over the world. We had no TV which forced my partner and to just sit and talk with each other. The had cherries waiting on the bed when I ordered them.

We stayed in one of the cottages on the lake (Kiwassa). The cottage itself was exquisitely appointed. Every square inch had classic Adirondack design detail. You can not beat the views. Arrived late in the dark and we awakened to the lake and Whiteface Mountain out of our windows. Very special. The beds were very comfortable and dressed with wonderful...

. I loved this place it was so peaceful! Our cabin was so beautiful and I loved the fireplace! It was not cheap to stay here and I was a bit disappointed with the breakfast- I felt like the portions were small and the it was not the best. Otherwise, the trip was great and I would definitely go again!

We've now been at LPL 6 times...always in October... and have never been dissappointed. If you so desire, you never have to put anything on other than a clean pair of jeans, a flannel shirt and a pair of comfortable mocassins. We probably do go overboard by defaulting to the Whiteface Suite which is on the top level and includes...

View and room accommodations were great, staff was helpful, only thing lacking was the food, portions were small but good food. The accommodations for dogs were great, even offered us a dog bed. Anything we needed were brought to us in a timely fashion, would recommend this place.

I wish tripadvisor allowed me to give a 4.5. The good. Beautiful room. Great scenery. Lots of activities. Beautiful and comfortable property. Very relaxing. We saw some reviews not liking the food. We ate both in the informal pub and the dining room and had no complaints. The complimentary breakfasts were good. Just lacked a bit in imagination. Turn down...

I am cautious in writing less positive reviews, so I write this carefully. We spent four nights in a Lakeside Balcony suite. The room itself was really nice, but that alone just wasn't enough. The young lady who initially greeted us seemed totally disinterested; fortunately, a MUCH more animated co-worker stepped in, so perhaps our first contact was a fill-in....

We just returned from a 2 night stay at Lake Placid Lodge and I canot stop raving. First and most notable is the decor. From the front entrance created with interwoven branches to the furnishings that are locally inspired and meticulously sourced to the fabulous cabin on the lake, this was a terrific experience. The overall feel is rustic, but...

We love Lake Placid and have visited many times before but previously had stayed at the Whiteface Lodge. I wanted this trip to be extra special as it would be one in welcoming home my husband from deployment. The Lake Placid Lodge was like nothing we’ve ever experienced. The setting was so serene and peaceful with so much to experience...
