If you are looking for the quintessential Adirondack experience this is the place to visit. We were greeted by friendly staff and then checked into our room. The room has the feel of your own cabin in the woods. What was most surprising was the silence of the room. No HVAC, no crazy neighbours - just peace and quiet. There... More

The grounds, room and food was exceptional! This was the perfect quick get away for my husband and I after our wedding! The weather in lake place was a bit cloudy and cold, but that only made having a cozy suit, with two fireplaces, all the more enjoyable!

We really didn't want to leave as everything was so well done. The staff were excellent, pro-active in asking us if we needed help, telling us about some activities that were starting, actively helping us to plan where to eat, what to do etc. Room was large and very comfortable, pools were amazing, attention to detail everywhere.

My family and I arrived for a Fall weekend retreat and were treated like rock stars amidst a magnificent five-star resort setting. Memories were made which will last generations. For anyone needing a re-charge, a stay at the Whiteface Lodge is the answer.

We visited the lounge of this gorgeous lodge twice because it was that breathtaking. The entire place just reeks the Adirondack experience. When you walk in you are surrounded by beauty~ the wood is rich and warm, the lounge has a great bar and two wood-burning fireplaces. There are cozy leather chairs and couches everywhere. The staff is beyond friendly... More

From the minute we checked in, we fell in love with this place! Ladies at the Front Desk were very pleasant and professional, the valet guys were very helpful as well. The property looked well maintained and very clean. Generally, Lodge style is not my cup of tea, but this one was quite impressive and just made us feel like... More

My husband loves the outdoors, I love beauty and world class luxury. The Whiteface Lodge was the perfect match for us both! The rustic interior and gorgeous window views were enough to keep him indoors and appreciate the taxodermy, and me!

The Whiteface Lodge deserves its top ranking. The suite we stayed was fantastic! We were in the back where our balcony opened to the woods and trails behind the lodge. Very quiet here, and relaxing. We had come just as the leaves were turning. Breakfast from the buffet, although limited, is good. And it's included in the room rate. The... More

Wow, I really loved this place. The property is well cared for and the structure has what you would expect in a high end lodge. This place has nice big fireplaces in the restaurant and lounge. There are a few others scattered around for good measure. The activities include tennis, game room, nice gym, a little skating rink, movie room,... More
