After having visited the Spa this past November, we decided to stay a night at the Lodge. It is located on a huge plot of land to help you feel like you have completely escaped. It is wonderful. And actually, you are only a minute drive to downtown and they will drive you there and back. The property is beautifully... More

The Whiteface Lodge is warm and calming everywhere you go on the property. The scenery is very peaceful. They have activities for guests of all ages and interests. I did not want to leave. It was a beautiful experience. I can't wait to go back in the summer.

Several years ago, our adult kids gave us a gift certificate to a different resort in Lake Placid and we used it, but were put off by the utter pretentiousness of the place. We received a similar gift from my husband's co-workers when he retired - to the Whiteface Lodge - my first thought was "Another overpriced, stuffy LP resort..."... More

My husband and I travelled here to meet his family for the week between Christmas and New Years. It was magical. Holiday decorations adorned the hotel and we felt like we were in a Holiday movie. The suite we reserved was spacious, comfortable and had all the amenities you could ask for. The lodge is amazing with seating areas throughout... More

We had a great time celebrating our 23rd anniversary. We stayed 1/25-1/27/15 and it was the perfect time. The lodge was not very crowded-it was like our own private lodge! We can't say enough about how great the staff was. Everyone was super friendly and helpful. The bartenders were very knowledgeable and they took the time to teach us a... More

The new owners have managed this place for years, and now they can make changes to the place for the better. I am excited to see what changes they will make in... More
