We just spent our third summer at The Whiteface Lodge. We absolutely love it there and can't say enough. The hotel is adorned with wood and stone with a very Adirondack decor. It is warm an cozy, yet upscale and elegant in every way. There is so much to do right on the property from fishing in the pond (they... More

We stayed for two nights at this lovely hotel whilst visiting America. I just wanted to let others know about this place, it was absolutely 1st class... Everything about it is perfect, beautiful furnishings, great service, lovely surroundings, pool was as warm as a bath.... Would love to return to America just to stay here again. Thankyou for the great... More

We had a great stay here - our one-bedroom was spacious and nicely furnished. Great gym, nice outdoor jacuzzis, loved the movie theater & popcorn, nightly smores. Excellent restaurant for breakfast and for dinner and nice bar atmosphere in the early evening. However, we didn't see Lake Placid - literally! I definitely wish the lodge was on the lake but...

Incredible vacation, the lodge is first class, we can't wait to return. The restaurant offers limited selection but anything we ordered was fabulous! The facilities are great for families or couples. The heated indoor/outdoor pool was surrounded by mountain scenery.

When we arrived at Whiteface Lodge- we were a bit put off that it wasn't on the water- but that was okay. The place is gorgeous- reminiscent of an old national park lodge in the west. All of the details seem well thought out and taken care of. They give you free wifi, free laundry, free warm chocolate chip cookies... More

Rooms, staff, pub, pool/spa are all top notch. Huge log beams, lots of Adirondack art and furniture all work for a great lodge experience. Besides the indoor/outdoor heated pool and hot tubs, kids loved the free movie theater, with popcorn, and s’mores by the campfire. Choc chip cookies for evening turndown is a nice touch, as is filling the in... More

One of the nicest "LODGE" type hotels anywhere. The rooms are very spacious, the views are marvelous, friendly staff, and, oh, by the way, the nighttime cookies in the room are exceptional. This hotel is gorgeous, and the facilities such as the game room, spa, pool, and common sitting areas are wonderful. The hotel is close to town, but the... More

I absolutely loved my stay at Whiteface. The customer service was top notch, the lodge itself was stunning. My room was HUGE and met all my expectations. Hello, heated bathroom floors! Full kitchen, fire place, lots of closet space. The grounds were beautiful and clean. The truffle fries with parmesan cheese were the best fries I have ever eaten. The... More

Just spent one night at this lodge, definitely want to return. Beautiful surroundings, capable & efficient staff. Why did it lose a star? When you close the shower curtain, there is almost no light in the shower area. Make sure you know which is the shampoo & which is the shower gel before you get in the shower!
