The lodge is simply charming with great attention to details. We had a 3-bedroom suite, which is hard to find when you are traveling. Each bedroom had its own bathroom and the common areas were large enough for all 6 of us. All were beautifully appointed. We greatly enjoyed the birch and wood accents, as well as the beautiful dining...

Hello, Great to hear how much you enjoyed your stay and one of our nearly 2,000 sq. ft. Three bedroom Suites. Those rooms really are perfectly designed for both groups of couples/friends traveling together and family getaways, and we have 23 of them! Also great to hear you enjoyed all the local craftsmanship touches that make this both Luxurious and...

We picked Whiteface Lodge for our weeklong family vacation because it was ranked first of hotels in Lake Placid on Tripadvisor and seemed family friendly. We have done a bit of traveling as a couple before, but this was our first vacation as a family with my 9month old daughter and we were looking specifically for a place that would...

We had come here during Thanksgiving last year for a dinner and decided we would stay here next time in Lake Placid. It is just so rustic and wonderful in almost every way. I say almost because...the bed was small. My husband and I have a queen at home but this seemed smaller....we booked the junior suite and thought it...

Hello, Thank you for the review and I am glad you had a great Thanksgiving Holiday with us! Maybe the suite being so large made the Queen Mattress feel smaller, but it was a full size Queen. Out of our 94 Suites, only the 9 Junior Suites have Queen Beds in the Master, the other 85 Suites all have King...

I loved this hotel and my biggest regret is not having had more time to take full advantage of all of their amenities. I was in town to cheer on a friend in an Ironman competition so was in town all day. I wish the hotel were a little bit closer to town as it's not a short walk and...

The place checks off all the boxes. Adirondack decor, decent views, nice sized suites, friendly enough staff, dining spaces that are high end rustic. But, at the end of the day, it seems to be a collection of these features more than an organic whole. Try the Mirror Lake Inn or the Interlaken for more authenticity.

Nice hotel with a good combination of decor, facilities and service. IT is good for families, with play room , indoor/outdoor pool and other facilities. They need to make sure the pool does not feel like spring break at times , with pizza and beers running around. Other than that a nice stay.

Very average, especially for the cost. They advertise a lot of amenities but the pool was very crowded with limited staff. The maintenance in the room was subpar. Dirty bathtub ledge and drain not working properly. This is not premium resort, just average.
