My wife and I spent out 35th wedding anniversary at this outstanding resort. The suites are great plenty of room with all the amenities. The outdoor pool for November was a real surprise. We will definitely be back.

Hello, Congratulations on 35 years of marriage and thank you for spending it with us. The pool is always one of the most memorable parts of guests stays in the winter with the hot tubs flowing over into the 90 degree pool water outdoors. We look forward to your next visit and wish you many more Happy Anniversaries! Warm regards More

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. Whiteface Lodge was exactly what we were looking for. Everything about our stay was fabulous. We couldn't have asked for nicer people or accommodations. The only unfortunate part was the rain but that had nothing to do with the perfect atmosphere of the Lodge. We plan to come every year. We... More

We really enjoyed our few days in October at the Lodge, we had a beautiful suite that we could easily have lived full time in. The staff were all very friendly and the pools and hot tubs great, Our time in Lake Placid too was great.Recommended.

Hello, It is nice to hear you say our all Suite Resort made you fell like you could "Easily" live in your room. That is really what makes our accommodations so unique, they are all luxury mountain residences, not hotel rooms and suites. Thanks for staying with us and recommending the resort to others. We hope to see you again... More

My husband and I spent one night at the Lodge during a trip to Lake Placid. It was an absolute treat, and I did not want to leave! Our room was really luxurious, with its own lounge, kitchen, fireplace and guest toilet! We had a very special evening and I will definitely want to return if we are lucky enough... More

Amazing time at the Lodge. The service and amenities are terrific and the whole atmosphere and accommodations are inviting and relaxing. Breakfast in Kanu in the morning is terrific. Great place for a family to get away and enjoy the resort or venture off and enjoy the village or beach which is extremely close.

We have just returned from our third visit to Whiteface in a year (Thanksgiving 2013 & 2014 and July 2014). We love everything about the hotel, the amenities, and the surroundings, and have come to realize that it really is the only place we are interested in vacationing! The best way to describe Whiteface is understated luxury. The suites are... More

I surprised my Wife with a three night stay for Her birthday and I must say the Whiteface is just a fabulous place.

We were great with a smiling, enthusiastic, welcome by Chris who happily unloaded our bags and escorted us to our room while respectfully calling us Mr. and Mrs. and telling us what to expect during our stay. We thought it was dream. We tried to listen politely but distracted by the incredible attention to detail everywhere we looked. Every stick... More
