I began working w/ LPL for a family gathering to celebrate a special birthday 7 months prior to our arrival. With months to plan the many details for a very special trip, I was sure there was ample time. We took care of the big stuff first..room/cabin reservations for all of us (there were several) and then discussed tentative plans... More

We just spent a lovely three days at The Lake Placid Lodge over the Christmas holidays. This was our first trip there in the winter and the area was just as gorgeous as our summer and fall visits. As usual everything about the Lodge was perfection personified from our initial warm greeting and glass of champagne with Becky to the... More

We drove up from New York City for a long weekend and after driving through Lake Placid's town center, we almost got worried (sorry, Lake Placid, I'm sure you were considered "beautiful" in your heydays in the 80s). Luckily, our GPS told us to keep going, past Mirror Lake, and up to Whiteface Inn Lane. Aaah. Winter Wonderland began right... More

we went in the summer and stayed in one of the cabins. We brought our dog and they had a dog bed for her and treats and a little sign they hung on the door to warn housekeeping so she wouldn't escape. The food was wonderful and the service was excellent. The cabin is decorated meticulously and beautifully. As if... More

We always stay in one of the cabins by the lake. They are decorated in the Adirondack style, everything made from wood. There's a large window facing the lake, a wood burning fireplace and a giant tub in the bathroom. It's a perfect cabin, as far as I'm concerned. Because of the recent snow fall, the area trees were covered... More

We stayed in one of the cabins over Thanksgiving and had a wonderful holiday weekend. The wintery experience was perfect to get us in the mood for the season, waking up each morning to a breathtaking snowy lakeview from our cabin. The lodge has a perfect, outdoors-y ambiance with lots of attention to detail in the design and communal areas.... More

This hotel does not want or believe in travel agents. It took me almost 5 calls and several emails to get paid. I was paid at the end of November for a stay in early August.This was even after a dialog with the general manager in August when he told me that this would be an easy and fast process.... More

We booked a cabin on very short notice and were blown away by how beautiful the place was. We were greeted by a glass of champagne upon our arrival by car and given a tour of the main lodge before being taken to our cabin. Food in restaurants was always top notch, although I must say that on a couple... More
