We had the chance to stay at Paradox Lodge this past weekend. Our first experience with a B&B of this type but loved it so much that we will not stay any other place when we visit Lake Placid. We were close enough to town to walk but also far enough to get away from the hustle of main street.... More

As always, we look forward to our stay at the Paradox. This time we had the Whitney room. It was beautiful & very comfortable. The rooms that we've had are all lovely & very clean. When we arrive, we are always greeted by Nan (owner). Her warmth & genuine caring personality is very delightful & always makes us feel welcome... More

Paradox Lodge has become, for my wife and I, an irresistible destination of choice. In regards to traveling, my wife and I generally pride ourselves in meticulous research when it comes to quality, character and charm in the many places and locations that we stay…and Paradox Lodge does NOT disappoint…year after year. Deservedly so, the cozy bed-and-breakfast ALWAYS provides a... More

We stayed at the Paradox for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The breakfasts were wonderful - delicious scrambled or fried eggs (with one additional choice each day of pancakes or French toast), toast, potatoes, unlimited coffee and tea. Each breakfast started with a delicious fresh fruit cup and was different each day. We enjoyed our breakfast each day... More

The free canoe/kayak usage after a wonderful breakfast just made our stay even better. Would highly recommend staying here. Our bed was super comfortable and all amenities were taken care of. There is no TV in the room which was fine by us!

Stayed 2 nights at Cedar Lodge with my valentine for our anniversary. We chose the Paradox because we were looking for something different... and got exactly that. Great service, excellent food, relaxing atmosphere, and a warm quiet room. Life has been busy and staying at the Paradox was a perfect place to unwind. Also, we have decided... since you can't...

We stayed at Paradox Lodge between Christmas and New Year based on trip advisor reviews. I do not normally like B&B's but my partner convinced me to give it a go. We arrived late after driving through the snow from NYC and the welcome was very warm, especially given that we had arrived in the middle of dinner service. Nan... More

The Trip Advisor review response guidelines say that you must respond in the same language the review has been written. I will do my best to adhere to this but there are some phrases and words that are simply foreign to me. Your opening and closing sentences say it all: that you do not normally like B & B’s, you...

Paradox lodge was a warm welcome to lake placid. The main lodge was very cozy and the rooms spotless, although the beds were small. Comfortable but small. A little off the main drag but still convenient to everything. We were a little disappointed in breakfast after hearing rave reviews about their restaurant, but it was sufficient. Overall a nice place!

I really enjoyed staying at the Paradox. We stayed in the Daisy room. It has a lot of character, but I wasn't a fan of the shower. It was cute but I think I'd prefer a traditional shower and sink. The owners, especially Nan, are super friendly and professional. The breakfast was delicious and we stayed for dinner one night... More

We are happy that you enjoyed your stay at our lodge as well as the meals that you had with us. We appreciate your comments. As for your dislike for our shower set up: when we renovated the building back in 1998 we tried to keep as much of the house as original as possible. This included keeping the claw... More

My wife and I spent a week at the Paradox over the New Year break. The room was beautiful and extremely cozy. We particularly enjoyed the stove in the room, it was great to warm up with after a long day out in the cold. The bed was made every day and the towels were new each morning. Nan and... More
