We live in the area and enjoy going to the Wilderness Inn. I am surprised by the negative reviews. We have never had bad food or poor service. It is a quaint little Adirondack restaurant. I am probably the pickiest person when it comes to my food. There food has NEVER disappointed me. I have never stayed in any of... More

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

Last year we ate at the Wilderness Inn on vacation. We were put in a very cramped area and the service and food was terrible. Althoughwe were cramped the owner had a table set up asa shrine to her self. Will never go back.

We love these cabins up in the mountains and highly recommend them. They also have a restaurant right there on the premises for dinners at night. They have package... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Tamarack cabin for a weekend get away. The cabin was very clean and I loved that it had some authentic Adirondack touches. It was very close to everything we wanted to do. We did not eat at the Wilderness restaurant as we thought it was a little over prices. We ended up eating... More
