Missed out this year (2015) since they were closed for Christmas Eve, but we've had very nice meals here on previous travels. I especially enjoyed the escargot appetizer. I like the cozy ambiance and never feel rushed through the meal. Looking forward to getting back here in the Spring of 2016.

My wife and I had decided that just prior to Christmas we would take a sabbatical. Although we live in Upstate New York, and are no stranger to snow, neither of us like it. So where did we go for a get-away-from-everything time out? Yup - Lake Placid, home of the 1932 and 1980 WINTER Olympics. OK, we're a couple... More

I have eaten at this restaurant many times the food is always excellent! The atmosphere is unique and cozy. I would highly recommend. after a day at the mountain this is the best place to go to eat or have a drink and it's only about 2 miles from Whiteface.

We visited in March '14, stayed in the Cedar cabin, and were extremely pleased with the accommodations, quality and price. The cabin is small yet comfortable, cozy, with 2 beds - 1 queen, one full, and a comfortable futon in front of the fireplace. It also has a microwave, coffee maker and a refrigerator, and even a small breakfast nook... More

Our friend Allison suggested we have dinner here. It wasn't far from Santa's Workshop and on the road back to Lake Placid. We chose to eat off the light menu. Everyone was happy with their choices. My wife and I had hot roast beef sandwiches. The service was good and the atmosphere is rustic and homey. A great time was... More
