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.

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 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.

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
