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.

We hope you come back soon and let the 6 year old know around most holidays we do add additional cookie types with the afternoon "Tea and Treats".... More

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

Hello, We appreciate the detailed and helpful review you provided. It sounds like everything was terrific, with all issues related to bed aside. We hope you will come back soon and the one, well hidden, spot that mentioned "all suites feature king beds" has been corrected, 88 out of 94 do have Kings. Thank you again and we will have... More

My husband and I came here recently for a weekend getaway and had a wonderful experience. We loved everything about this hotel. We took advantage of the spa, movies, ice cream parlor, pool, restaurant and bar and have nothing but the highest praises for all of it. We especially loved that the outside pool is heated enough where we could... 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

This place is ridiculously customer focused. They aim to make you feel special, and comfortable. And they succeed. And not only is the hospitality great, the property itself is fantastic. Rustic, comfortable, and everything you need.

We spent a fabulous weekend at the hotel for a wedding, which was held there. I had called the hotel earlier in the week to tell them that we would be arriving very early, and our room was ready for us when we arrived. We had booked a three bedroom suite, and it was gorgeous!

That means even the 1 Bedroom Suites have almost everything you described. The pool, guest service, food and overall experience you had is terrific to hear but what is even better is that... More

We had our wedding here yesterday. Kristin, who arranged all the details, was wonderful. The ceremony at the Boathouse was cozy, with a backdrop to the Adirondacks and Whiteface. The reception in the Adirondack Dining Room was equally wonderful. If you are planning a wedding in the Adirondack, you owe it to yourself to consider booking here. Our "hitching" went... More

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.
