We spent a 3-day weekend at Lake Placid Lodge with our dog. What a fantastic property with great staff! The property is right on the lake, couldn't possibly be a better location. The property is exactly the way the promotional pictures and videos are on their website. They have canoes, kayaks, paddle boards, etc readily for your use. They hotel... More

We had the luck to find a great price for this expensive hotel. Its a real romantic indulgence, it is definitely a unique wooden atmosphere, an unforgettable night by the fireplace on the lake. For dinner you can find some wonderful small restaurants (mostly steaks though) 6 min drive.

the only hotel ON Lake Placid with magnificent views set in a rustic adirondack setting of pure luxury. It is full of character, each cabin filled with handmade authentic adirondack furniture, with gorgeous views of the lake, fireplace and delicious food. Service is caring and there is nothing they won't do for you. We will return for sure. If you... More

I have been to this place enough times that I can make a solid judgement. I love it. I love the servers and the menus and the atmosphere. In artisans, Ray is the best server I have ever seen in a fine dining situation. He was the most accommodating and positive human I've seen in awhile. In Maggie's, Michael and... More

For many YEARS we have frequented this hotel for the fine dinners served in its restaurants. And we have given many excellent reviews expressing our delight. However, we may reconsider our options given an experience last evening. I arrived with my well-behaved nephew in tow having built his expectations high for a grand experience. Holding hands we entered the building... More

Lake Placid is my favorite place in the world. And I have always enjoyed staying at the Lodge, despite the staggering cost. In the past, service has been top notch, but lately - since the new management took over - things have been slipping. The fine level of attention to detail is missing. It used to be that the staff...

Sooooo good, doesn't even cut it, if I was a wordsmith I could tell you about the view, or the atmosphere, the attention to details of food presentation and caring staff and suggestions for wines, so just go and enjoy it all. My daughters 21st birthday was all the better for going.

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
