I've reviewed this venue before ,but just wanted to give another review of our stay. We said we would be back and we did return. Great room overlooking the lake, bonfire at night , cool October weather made it picture perfect. Great service from everyone.

Myself and boyfriend recently stayed here! What a cute place! They have an indoor and outdoor (lake fed) pool and such beautiful grounds! The staff was also very pleasant. You can take a kayak or canoe out on the lake for free too! The room was nice and clean and I loved having a balcony. I would definitely return!

What a wonderful, clean place to stay. My husband and I come up to this area annually and will continue to stay here. Very friendly, accommodating owners with lots of information on dining and shopping. I would recommend a couple or family stay at this hotel. There are games, movies and the like for the children with an indoor pool... More

Motel situated on the lake. Rustic but clean. Comfortable and relaxing. Paddleboat, row boats and canoes for your enjoyment. Grills and fire pit are available. Fresh water pool too. Great to wake up in the morning and walk out with my coffee and enjoy the sunrise.

The Wildwood-on-the-Lake is wonderfully located to all Lake Placid has to offer. The hotel also has many amenities for a family to enjoy including; pools, hot tub, canoes, paddle boards, paddle boats and fire pit. Great place to spend your time when you are not in town.

On a motorcycle trip with my brother, destination Cabot Trail in Nova Scotia, we ride in the rain in New York State. We decide to sleep-over at Wildwood on the Lake. The place is rustic and is a resort center on the edge of Lake Miror, a suburb of Lake Placid. What a pleasant discovery. The price is low, the... More

My husband and I stayed here for the long Memorial Day weekend and loved it so much we want to go back. Stew and his staff we awesome, we really enjoyed the room, the fires and the friendliness. The Jacuzzi tub was a little outdated but it still worked great.

This is a family owned, well-loved and cared for motel. We just completed our third stay, and once again are sad to leave! The rooms are clean and comfortable, the lake view and lawn area is tucked away from the bustle of the main streets, and the owners are personable. You can choose to spend days on the lake as...
