After a 3+ hour drive from Syracuse airport during snow, we were very happy to be greeted at Lake Placid Lodge by the very cordial Katie with flutes of champagne by the lobby fireplace. She offered to have our rental car driven down to our lake level cabin and unpacked. We attended a wedding in the main lodge that night... More

Lake Placid Lodge is one of my most favorite places to stay. From the amazing adirondack scenery to the ambience of the lodge, it has it all. The staff is wonderful and they make sure every detail is covered. The breakfast is awesome with homemade muffins, jams, sausage and bacon to the egg skillet. They use local organic food. Each...

Do yourself a favour and check in at the Lake Placid Lodge and you'll check out completely refreshed. This is a truly truly a unique property, situated on a stunningly beautiful setting overlooking the lake backed by the dramatic mountains surrounding you. The theme is Log Cabin luxury, backed by incredibly accommodating staff, fantastic food (the stew is worth the... More

This is my second time back to the Lake Placid Lodge, and they continue to impress. Arrived early, and grabbed lunch in the bar in Lodge, food was outstanding. While eating my car was brought to the cabin, luggage unloaded, total first class. The lakefront cabin was amazing. Breakfast every morning was so yummy. Beverly, the front desk manager is... More

This was a return visit for my birthday treat. We stayed in the same cabin, Owls Head last year. We were very excited about returning and were especially looking forward to the private hot tub, which is the big reason we decided to come back. I had been anticipating the tub for weeks, which is why we were so utterly... More

The second you walk through these doors, you are transformed to a different time and you feel instantly that you are somewhere quite special. The details throughout the lodge is perfection. Our cottage was beyond a thrill, service was spectacular except the food wasn't very good, next time we will not eat there. But, everything else exceeded our expectations!

We stayed in one of the individual cabins -- very rustic and beautiful! Our cabin had a small lawn area that was adjacent to the lake. We loved that our dog was welcome at the hotel. Many other guests had dogs, and there were many trails/activities that were pet friendly. There are 2 restaurants on property: one is more of... More

We could not have been happier with our stay at the Lake Placid Lodge in Sept 2014. We chose the venue approximately a year in advance of our wedding and were exceedingly impressed with the entire staff throughout the process. Greta Hovland handled the many nitpicky details of our wedding and was stellar throughout. She upgraded our room when we... More

We come here every year, including when it was the old Lodge before the fire, and it's a great hotel in a great location. The Lodge is exactly what you would imagine a great Adirondack camp to resemble. The staff, food, and drinks are great as well. Maggie's pub is a most visit.
