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

Son and his gf came up on one of the worst weekends to find lodging...4th of July! They found an opening at Wildwood on the Lake and bc of a cancellation, we joined them and are still here 2 extra days. Family run, hands on lodging. Very quaint look...Bavarian style. Lake-fed outdoor pool. Nice, well taken care of boats to... More

A wonderful motel. The room, overlooking the lake, was simple but very comfortable. I has a lovely balcony with chairs. The hotel has free kayaks and canoes, 2 pools and more! The owners are very personable and helpful. Great location! Only (minor) drawback: our bed sagged.

I have now stayed at the Wildwood twice in the past two months, and I have stayed here before. I wouldn't stay anywhere else. The rooms are spotless and the location cannot be beat. The proximity to town is excellent, and this is lakefront Lake Placid property! One could spend $1,000 or more for fancier accommodations right on the lake,... More

We spent a weekend here, and thought it was great. My husband & I had a specialty room with our kids and grandson next door. The room was a good size and the view from our balcony was fantastic. The room was very clean. It had a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker in the room. We had no problems at... More

The view from our room (which was a specialty room) was very pretty and the room was a good size. The wifi was terrible. It frequently cut in and out - not a smooth run on any website. The towels were thin and discoloured. We got one little bottle of shampoo for two people for two days and no other... More

Wildwood motel was awesome. This is truly an experience you will not get at a hotel or camping. It is the perfect balance in between. We stayed in a cabin outfitted with a full kitchen, wi-fi, a flat screen TV, a hot shower and a deck with quite possibly the best view in all of lake placid. My family enjoyed... More

My boyfriend and I wanted to get away from Plattsburgh for a few days, I had never been to lake placid before so we decided to go. We had a lovely stay at Wildwood, we were surprised when we arrived to find that we had Cottage 118 as we had reserved a specialty room. The room was wonderful, we used... More
