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

Great place for family fun! However, off of the reviews you'd think this really was a 5 star resort hotel. We're not talking Sagamore quality. We're talking very nice hotel with lots of kids activities. The worst room service and menu. I ordered 2 nights in a row and both nights the food was burnt. Not just a little burnt,... 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

Dear rg142, Thank you for providing your review on Tripadvisor. It was great to speak with you before your arrival as well as while you were a guest with us. As we discussed, in order to receive a commission, certain documentation needs to be provided. The time it took to process your commission resulted from us not having this document.... 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

When you arrive at Lake Placid Lodge, it does not disappoint. It is very easy to find, being not far out of Lake Placid itself and well signposted. We were greeted by a staff member (John) at the front desk who was very polite and friendly but not over-familiar. Another staff member (Willie I think?) joined him and asked if... More
