This place is awesome, like super super super awesome. I had a wonderful experience spending a weekend there for an on-site wedding. Hot tubs, pools, canals from the indoor pool to the outdoor one, a two-lane bowling alley, tons of nooks and crannies that are just so so so cool, and overall just a really really neat place. The facilities... More

Our stay at the lodge was worth every penny! Very friendly staff, amazing room, superb view, very comfy mattress. We ordered room service for dinner. Served my a waitress, steaks were hot and tasty. Pool and jacuzzis are very nice. Not very crowded. We had an amazing stay, everything was perfect! We'll go back for sure!

Had a great time with family to celebrate my birthday! You can have a great time at the lodge without even going off the property! This was our 2nd time there and again the whiteface signature massage was the best I've had anywhere! The restaurants are wonderful and they are more than happy to work with you on any diet... More

We stayed in an Incredible two-storey three bedroom suite during the month of February. The rooms were large and comfortable with a nice kitchen, fireplace and a big balcony. The property has a great restaurant. The buffet breakfast was included in our room rate and was very good. The resort has a nice skating area and the kids loved it.... More

We spent 3 nights at Whiteface Lodge in Lake Placid and enjoyed every minute. The staff was exceptionally helpful and friendly. We enjoyed dining in both the Kanu dining room and Kanu Lodge.

We spent two nights at Whiteface Lodge in Lake Placid and it was excellent -- it is a beautiful lodge -- the food was delicious, the room was gorgeous with a view of Whiteface Mountain and the staff were very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend it. We were fortunate in that we were there in the off-season (end... More

We just returned from a wonderful 3 night stay. Everything was perfect, staff was very friendly. Kids enjoyed all the amenities. We could really not find a fault. Only improvement my family could identify came from my six year old whom wished they rotated the complimentary cookie flavors. Would live to return.

Stayed at the Whiteface mid April, just after their annual two week shutdown. It was remarkable that this place was right off the main road but felt miles from anywhere. Arrival and check-in were a breeze after a five hour car ride. The complementary valet whisked the car away and got our bags to our room. The front desk was... More

If you are looking for a great escape, try the Whiteface Lodge in Lake Placid. The lodge's Adirondack decor is elegant, yet homey. The amenities are excellent. Indoor and outdoor swimming pool. A great fireplace in the lodge. Wonderful rooms. A little pricey. Keep an eye on specials. Perfect place for a relaxing, romantic getaway. Going back in May again... More
