Not a chain hotel, but really homey and friendly staff. Sorry I couldn't stay more than one night to enjoy the lake and free activities they provide for you. Room was rustic, clean and had a balcony overlooking the lake. Was very quiet and right outside of downtown Lake Placid for easy driving or walking access. Would definitely recommend.

We stumbled on this hotel last year when we attempted to make our anniversary reservations late and all of the chain hotels were booked. We decided to try the "Wildwood on the Lake" for at least one night. When we arrived, we found friendly faces and a clean room with an amazing view! The owners of the hotel are not... More

We really recommend “Wildwood on the Lake” as a great place to stay in Lake Placid. The cost is very reasonable and it is a much nicer place to stay than the standard chain hotels or more expensive options. The rooms and surroundings are very clean, the canoes are free and they make a nice fire outside every evening. There... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for IMLP 2014. We stayed for one week, and overall it was a very nice stay. The property was lovely and we were very excited to be right on Paradox Bay, which is connected to Lake Placid. Super easy paddling to the lake, which has magnificent views. We stayed in a cabin, which had... More

We had lake side room and view of mts! Gazebo overlooking lake perfect spot for first cup of coffee or last glass of wine. Kayaks were provided. Pool, hot tub, sauna too. Not far from center of town but quiet at night. Staff helpful and friendly! Will go back for 3rd time soon

We stayed in a lakeside room, very quiet and great views of the lake, the mountains, and the sunrise. Kayaks and canoes available no charge. Have stayed here twice now and would not hesitate to go back.

Waters are not so deep and its safe for kids as well. A must place to visit along with this hotel. they offer decent... More

We spent one night before camping to marcy dam and it was really nice. Away from the crowd and the urban touristic atmosphere of lake placid (which is few miles away), really quiet, we had a beautiful view on the lake with a small balcony, friendly and zen atmosphere. You have access to multiple activities if you want to, kayak,... More

We stayed here on a Sunday in June and this was an amazing place to stay. I booked a suite with a fire place and Jacuzzi that overlooked Lake Placid. The room had a kitchenette also. We could have stayed here a month it was so comfortable. The place is run by a hands on family that tries to make... More
