Stayed on a weekend in December to ski at Whiteface and could not have been more comfortable. The room was clean and up to date, wi-fi, flat screen, fridge, microwave and coffee maker. Enjoyed the pool after skiing. Spoke with the owner for dining recommendations and they were on the mark. Will certainly stay here the next time I am... More

I was looking for a place w/fireplace on the Internet for Upstate NY when Wildwood on the Lake came up. I actually read a review on TripAdvisor. Had a problem w/TV remote, the owner showed within 10 mins & fixed it. Great service & value. Also loved that it has an indoor pool/hot tub/sauna, it was like 20F outside! Asked... More

Took a road trip up to Lake Placid for a fall weekend to do some leaf peeping, shopping and possibly Oktoberfest at Whiteface Mtn. This hotel was perfect for our group--three women, no kids. Room was clean, spacious, had a balcony with chairs and a fridge/microwave. The staff was very friendly...stopping to chat and make restaurant recommendations. We utilized the... More

My wife and I have been coming here for several years now. Very relaxing place to stay. Staff is friendly, place is very clean and grounds are very neat. We stayed in cabin 109 with a view of the lake. The lake fed pool is wonderful for children and you can barbeque on the grounds. And the price is very... More

I wasn't sure what to expect when I booked the room and ended up being pleasantly surprised with the hotel. It was right on a main street convenient to eateries yet it appeared to be nestled in the woods. The hotel had a rustic feel and the room was a good size with a refrigerator and microwave. There was a... More

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
