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.

My family and I (two sons under 10) stayed at the Whiteface lodge for 4 nights this week and found it to be excellent in most ways. The lodge itself is beautiful, cozy and inviting, and the valet and front desk were warm and helpful. The room was comfortable and cozy, and nicely decorated with a beautiful view. One of... More

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! It had a nice little... More

Hello, We appreciate the great description of our luxurious 3 Bedrooms Suites and what many don't know is we are the only all-Suite hotel in the Adirondacks. 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. And actually, you are only a minute drive to downtown and they will drive you there and back. The property is beautifully... More

I was pleasantly surprised when I walked into our King one bedroom suite. The rooms were extremely spacious with beautiful rustic decor. Every detail was tended to from giant fresh chocolate chip cookies every day, fresh water with glasses by nightstand, ice in the ice buckets. Rooms had a combo washer/dryer. Resort had a great exercise room, lots of equipment... 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.
