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...

I stayed here with my family and we all had a great time. The motel is older, but well kept. Stewart does a great job keeping it clean and well maintained. The housekeeping staff were very friendly and did a great job. The boats and paddleboards were fantastic and we enjoyed the bonfires at night. It is conveniently located and... More

We spent three nights here and wished we had stayed longer. So much to do in and around Lake Placid and Wildwood itself. Enjoyed the free paddle boats, canoe and kayaks. The most spectacular setting with easy access to the calmest sheltered spot on the lake. This is a great family holiday destination with fire pits, outdoor seating and BBQ... More

We love the Wildwood!! We have stayed multiple times. We enjoy the corner suite with the kitchenette and fireplace. Perfect for our family. The indoor pool is awesome and the outdoor beach area is great for all ages of kids. Common area with the fire pit, chairs and picnic benches is a bonus. Lake access with boats available is such...

If you are looking for a relaxing place, look no further. The Clean Rooms and pools, go take a boats or canoe out, and the views are exellent. The Owners live on the property and if you have an issue they stop everything to fix it immediately. I’ve stayed here the last 5 years and its the only place I... More

We stayed in one of the cottages they have, which we thought was fantastic. The cottage was spotless and very comfortable. It had a great deck with a table and some chairs where we could have our morning coffee and breakfast. They do offer the guests some morning muffins, banana cake, tea, coffee and some other treats. The view from... More

We have stayed at this motel twice. The view is simply gorgeous. There is an indoor pool and a beach-like pool with water falls that is great for those with children. They have pedal boats, canoes, and row boats on the premises. They also have cabins, which we have considered, but not rented yet. The location is great. Close to... More

Our room had a great balcony overlooking the lake. We also used the canoe which is included as part of the hotel. I wouldn't call it fancy, but I would recommend the hotel, especially if you can take advantage of the views and and the canoes/kayaks. My only wish was that it was an easy walk to into Lake Placid.... More

felixFelix, General Manager at Wildwood on the Lake, responded to this review

Thanks so much for taking the time out to write a nice review about the view and boats. Just wanted to correct the distance marker as our walk time to main street is 7 minutes and drive time just 60 seconds. We enjoy the fact we're not on the main street traffic area, improves the peace and quiet! We are... More

On Trip Advisor advice, I booked the corner suite on the ground floor right on the lake with a connecting room for my family of 4 (125/126). The suite had a kitchen and table, couch and plenty of space, not to mention awesome views and was steps to the water. The other ground floor lake side rooms looked really good... More
