Our family of 7 stayed in a Grand Lodge. Every aspect of the lodge felt well thought out. Since we do have a large group having a washer/dryer unit right in the room was great. The kitchen/dining area was pretty well stocked if you wanted to serve meals right in the room. There was a screened in porch with a... More

stayed three nights, suite was cozy when it was rainy and cool and open when it was warm and humid. Gorgeous grounds with nice little hiking trail. Shuttle to lake/ boating activities was fine but flight disappointment not to be able to just get there- and communication about when and if the facility was open was at times unclear .... More

We are from Florida and all we talk about is going back next summer. To be honest, given the safe environment for children, it is more bang for your buck in the winter because being cooped up there would be a good thing. I like getting outdoors, but if you are looking for a luxury mountain style resort to lounge... More

Location: one of the best (architecture, features, surroundings) hotels we have been to. This is the ultimate lodge made mostly of wood and, if you are like us, born in Europe, will remind you of the quintessential European mountain chateau. The hotel is well adorned with nice paintings, the rooms are large and nicely furnished, the cleaning services are almost... More

We loved this lodge. It had everything we wanted for a great family trip and the service was fantastic. The Lake Placid area is great for hiking, water sports, and a nice little town for dinner. The lodge itself has a lot of character and is a unique place to stay. The atmosphere at the lodge is wonderful and we... More

We stayed in a 3 bedroom suite and it was spectacular. Very well furnished and all the amenities you could ask for. Although the lodge is not actually located on Lake Placid and therefore does not offer any views other than trees, they do offer access to their lakeside canoe club. The canoe club was top notch; towels, lounge chairs,... More

Spent a week there with my wife and 3 kids (ages 21, 18 and 18). We had a two bedroom, two floor suite, which was nice and pretty spacious. The queen bed my twin girls slept on was pretty small, and the air conditioning is extremely loud, no matter what room you are in. We ate the first night in... More

We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights with our 18 year old twins and 21 year old. There was a pair of dirty socks left over from the previous occupant for 3 days before housekeeping picked it up. The restaurant left much to be desired. The service was not good and the food had no taste. The beach area... More

We are a camping family and mostly because hotels and resorts are so sketchy. We had THE BEST experience ever at whiteface lodge. Every person we encountered was very pleasant and helpful. There were four of us and we "rented " the bowling lanes for a really fun night. We haven't bowled in years. The shoes and lanes were sparkling.... More

For our 50th wedding anniversary, we took our entire family covering three generations to the Lodge. Everyone had a super time including the seven grandchildren ranging in age from 5 to 13. The service is impeccable. We have already recommended it to a number of friends
