This is a special property BUT the relatively new ownership is not doing a great job catering to existing clientele relative to rates, specials etc. The management staff on site, front desk etc has improved. Hats off to Beverly who should be promoted. The restaurant staff still suffers from inexperience but the food seems to be slightly better than last... More

My wife and I recently stayed at Lake Placid Lodge for the second time. Both stays were 4 nights and both times it was in February. Both times, the purpose of the visit was snow sports (downhill skiing at Whiteface and cross-country skiing and snowshoeing around Lake Placid). We just love this place. It is warm and inviting.

My husband and I spent three nights at the LPL, staying in a lakefront cabin. This was our second time staying at the Lodge, our first being in mid-September 2001. Our experience 13 years ago was truly special, which we attributed to the personalized service that began the moment we walked in the door. While the tranquility and beauty of... More

We had a feeling this would be a great destination when Anne Warner, the concierge, contacted us by phone 10 days before our arrival, just to see if she "could help us with any arrangements." And we were right. Location, amenities, views, activities, food, service are all of the very, very best. Our lakeside suite was spacious, comfortable and had... More

Lake Placid Lodge gets all that stress out the minute you arrive and are checked in. After a long drive from NYC, it's a welcome sight when you draw up to the front entrance.

Beautiful rooms with multiple fireplaces; a gourmet restaurant; a view of Whiteface Mountain; and a wonderful lake to explore. What more could you ask for from a mountain retreat?
