My wife and I celebrated our 50th Birthday by making a 2-night getaway. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. Staff were very friendly, our suite was just perfect with a kitchen area, a lving room area with a beautiful view overlooking the mountains. Our bed was very comfortable. In the Lodge, the dinning room is superb with 2 huge... More

Just returned from a 2 night getaway at Whiteface Lodge (30th anniversary celebration). We had a great time at this scenic, comfortable inn. All of the service people we encountered could not have been more helpful from the front desk to the waiters or the young man from maintenance who came to light us a fire by one of the... More

Had no idea it would be so good. It was a stop on our trip from Philadelphia to Quebec. Great atmosphere. The suite we stayed in was very nice and included a deck looking out at the mountains. Service was very friendly. It looks like a great place to bring children with a swimming pool, ice cream bar and private... More

When you are lucky enough to stumble upon near perfection, you sometimes have to dig pretty deep to find any fault. We loved this place. We had just driven 5 hours and dusk had set in as our appetites started to nag us. I first drove by this place on my way to find another hotel a family member had... More

We walked into a clean, spacious and very comfortable suite. Many little touches were evident. Water by the bed, cookies, chap stick and robes laid... More

I wish to preface this review with two things. Firstly, this is the first time I have felt strongly enough to actually comment on our travel experiences. Secondly, my wife, three children (boys 5,3,1) and I have been extremely blessed to travel many places and stay at some of the finest hotels/resorts in the world. Let me also say that... More
