Wonderful facility on beautiful Lake Placid. Staff are amazing and very helpful; food was fantastic. Would recommend this place to anyone for a special get away. We enjoyed taking advantage of their kayaks on the lake and loved the staff-guided boat tour. Concierge staff go out of their way to give great suggestions for activities, hikes, etc.

My husband and I have been summer guests at the Lake Placid Lodge for 12 years. We have stayed in the original lodge (before the fire), the new lodge and cabins on the lake. Considering the overall experience...minor flaws are not worth mentioning. The Lodge, Lake Placid and the Adirondacks are a gem to be treasured. So few place like... More

A beautiful property located in a beautiful setting, backed by being part of Relais & Chateaux (and American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts) led to high expectations. Our experienced failed to live up to any of the experiences we've had with the aforementioned brands. Spotty service from new staff that were not fully (or properly) trained and a suite in... More

Unlike Mirror Lake which is crowded, Lake Placid is rural and gives you a relaxed feeling of being by yourself in the wilderness. The hotel stuff at the reception, room service and maintenance are great. We dined at their 2 restaurants. At both of them the food was great. However the service at the Maggie's Pub was below of what... More

This was my first time at the Lodge and in the whole area. I did know what to expect, as the web site does give a very accurate description of everything, one can expect to do, see and experience. I love mountains and mountain lakes but being from the west coast, all I'd ever heard of the Adirondacks was that,... More

We stayed here around Christmas 2011 and I reviewed for Tripadvisor with a full 5 stars. Just returned from three nights on a June visit and am rating 4, not 5 stars. First, the Pros: 1) Remains a generally well run establishment. 2) Rooms are very clean (important to me), as are common areas and facilities. 3) Concierge service is... More

I read many of the superlative reviews about the Lodge before booking my trip and having just returned I have to agree with just about every one of them.

The lodge is a very special place-- right on the shore of the lake which gives the town its name, and after being there for 5 minutes you understand why it is called Lake Placid. It is the most peaceful, beautiful lake you can imagine; so clean and calm that it seems like it is begging you to jump right... More

Our third time at the Lodge was another enjoyable experience, highlighted by the accommodations, view and staff. While all of the staff we encountered were nothing but the most pleasant, professional and accommodating, special mention must go out to Katy, who seems to embody the Lake Placid Lodge brand and would be an asset in any organization.
