The Very Best Winter Wonderland Imaginable. A Must-Do in December, when the resort is decorated from "head to toe" for the Holidays. Perfection. Every room is done to the nine's in classic Adirondack style. Not a detail overlooked. FULL DISCLOSURE: we did not lodge here; we had dinner in the dining room. Our friends own a few weeks per year... More

Hello, It is great to hear how impressed you were just from the tour and a great dinner! We would love for you to stay with us too on your next visit to Lake Placid and you do not need to be an Interval Owner to rent one of our Lodge Suites (it is an all-suite resort). Than you could... More

What a fabulous resort, from the beautiful buildings to the clever underground link to the pool, from the fluffy towels to the bowling alley. We came for a White Xmas and were so thrilled to find such a stunning setting, the Christmas trees everywhere, the lights, the fires, just beautiful. We were a family of eight adults and were accommodated... More

Hello, We are so glad that your adventure all the way from Australia did not disappoint! Thank you for mentioning 3 of the truly unique and special parts of the resort; our Christmas tree, Tunnel connector and our Residence size grand suites (like 330.). Christmas is magical at the Whiteface Lodge and we hope your group will take the trek... More

So this review is a two part: the first part is a response on a previous review and the second part is the actual review, my overall opinion. Firstly, yes the 42' Christmas tree was not in the dining area when I arrived (January 1st 2015) and no I was not crushed to discover this. I know that they typically... More

Hello, Thank you for the endorsement with and without our spectacular Christmas tree. Like yours at home after New Year’s we take it down, wedding or no wedding. Now to the Great Review, you described our "Resort Inclusive" experience perfectly with a huge list of items that nearly anywhere else you pay extra for, all included! We hope to see... More

We've been here twice and now and compared to two years ago, this stay was not as good as then. The facilities are GREAT as they should be at a Leading Hotel of the world. Staff are friendly, the rooms are maintained quickly and well, beds are comfortable. The BIG gripe is with the food / catering. The menu is... More

Hello, We are happy to hear you had an "awesome retreat"!

I don't even know where to begin to say how wonderful the Whiteface Lodge is! My husband and I went there for our honeymoon in early December and everything, from the service, to the amenities, to the atmosphere, was perfect. Like another reviewer, we loved it so much that we stayed an extra night. The resort was decorated for Christmas... More

My husband and I booked our stay at Whiteface Lodge as a weekend getaway without the kids. At the last moment, we decided to bring along our four year old as he was in need of some "alone time" with mom and dad. What a great decision! Although my husband and I would have had a spectacular time alone, this... More

Fantastic Adirondack lodge style hotel! Loved just walking around and enjoying the fireplaces and furnishings. The included daily breakfast was nice, as was the afternoon tea and treats which included coffee and hot chocolate. The outdoor hot tub is a must-do!

We originally booked the Junior suite for our four night stay, upon our arrival, we were advised that we had been upgraded to a 3 bedroom 3 bathroom suite. Upon entering this suite, ( which is huge!) we were very impressed with the presentation. I think this is the first time I have ever stayed at a hotel were the... More
