We couldn't be more pleased with our visit to Whiteface Lodge. Our one bedroom suite had a comfy living room with a delightful fireplace that we found quite cozy on a cold July afternoon. Our kitchen was well equipped and we were able to make a full dinner here with no problem. The staff is beyond helpful and friendly. What... More

I have nothing but positive things to say about this beautiful Adirondack style resort in Lake Placid. Though not inexpensive, our one bedroom suite was absolutely beautiful and luxuriously appointed (very nice 1.5 baths (!!) and a lovely unexpected kitchen/dining area, porch and very comfortable king bed), the staff was very attentive and professional without being "in the way", service...

We had the most wonderful experience at The Whiteface Lodge. My husband, myself and our 3 kids came from Ohio and we arrived about 30 minutes before check-in and we were prepared to wait, but they said our room was ready so that was a nice surprise! The Lodge is beautiful, clean and the views are breathtaking. Our room exceeded... More

Our family of four spent five nights in July at the Whiteface Lodge. It is a charming, well-maintained property, a mile (or less) from both the town of Lake Placid and lake itself - and with gorgeous mountain views and loads of North-woods-lodge character. Our stay was lovely and relaxing - and there were some magical family-vacation moments, such as... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in July with my husband and 2 children. This lodge exceeded our expectations. It is not inexpensive but the level of service, rooms, restaurant and amenities make it worth the expense. The lodge is beautiful and extremely clean. The staff is superb, they go out of their way to accommodate your every need. The lodge... More

From the moment we arrived at this beautiful lodge, each member of the staff put forth an exceptional effort to make our stay exceptional. Rooms are well furnished with every amenity imaginable, they are snake free and also comfortable. Views are beautiful, the restaurants really nice and the on site bar very nice with live music on Saturday night. This... More

We stayed two nights at the Whiteface Lodge and very much enjoyed most of our stay. We had the entry-category suite which was beautiful, cosy, well thought out and had everything we needed (I enclosed pictures). The suite had an equipped kitchen, a dining table, a sofa-bed, two lounge chairs, a flat screen as well as a fireplace, a balcony,... More

We stayed 2 nights in what I think must have been a king accessibility suite as it appeared to be set up for wheelchair access. Very generous kitchenette with 2 burner stove top, full size oven, microwave, coffee maker, large soapstone sink and small dishwasher. Sitting area had roll-out queen size sofa bed that was so-so. Sitting area opened on... More

We have been there twice in the past month. Once for a birthday and once with friends. For the birthday they went out of their way to put a nice center-piece on the table and make sure everything was great even though they had 3 weddings that day. Everytime we go the food is splendid, the service first call, atmosphere... More

We received a free upgrade to one of the Whiteface Lodge's one bedroom suites and it was amazing. We stayed for 3 nights. The resort facilities are wonderful and the staff is excellent. We had a babysitter - Erin - babysit for us through the hotel, and she was great! Very responsible and experienced. As the other reviewers say, it... More
