We have stayed here twice since we found out about it a few years ago and there is no better place to be than the Mountain Brook Lodge when in the area! Al and Alicia go out of their way to make sure you are well taken care of. Warm, clean comfortable rooms with a cozy common area for a... More

Wilmington is a nice quiet area away from the big crowds in Lake Placid. This was the third year in a row we stayed at the Mountain Brook and the place is better than ever. Brought the whole family, took up four rooms and all were nice. Plenty to eat for breakfast, Al doesn't skimp here. The pool area is... More

The room was more than adequate, at a very reasonable price. The owner, Al, was just amazing. It was as if we were old friends, and we had come for a visit. The hospitality was great, and he gave us great ideas on what to do and where to go. We even stayed 4 nights instead of our planned 3.... More

Al and Alicia Armstrong, owners of the Mountain Brook Lodge, are wonderful hosts. They are friendly, helpful, and fun but not overbearing. They make you feel like friends/family coming for an enjoyable visit. Their lodge is more like a bed and breakfast. We stayed in the summer but the room would also be wonderful in the winter months with its... More

We wanted to spend a couple of days at Lake Placid and not spend a fortune. We found this on Tripadvisor and luckily got the last room available. We got there, and the owner, Al, greeted us so warmly and showed us our room. Exactly what a room in the Adirondacks should be. Clean and cozy, all the amenities, a... More

I'm just calling to know if a room is available for 2 nights, the women at the phone is answering me like shi... i'm gonna spend my money on a decent place. I'm just asking a simple question and she doesn't take time to answering me and hang up the phone. You do good buisness.

Sir, this is a total crock! My wife is the only woman here that answers the phone. She would never treat a customer like that. Please provide me your phone number and roughly the time you called. I will check out caller ID to see if you did indeed call. You may e-mail me the number at mtbrook@frontiernet.net Regards, Al... More

Our family of four just came back from a trip to the Maine coast. On our way home, we stayed one night at this lodge, in a room with a double and a bunk bed. Our kids were thrilled to sleep in the bunk bed! They also liked the popcorn in the room. Al (the hotel) owner was super friendly.... More

Our rugby team stays here ever year for the big Can-Am tournament. Al and Alicia treat you like royalty . The motel facilities and rooms are clean and the views from the lawn chairs are amazing. You get a great free breakfast to start the day. It is located in a cozy little village at the foot of Whiteface Mountain... More

Al and Alicia are the most accommodating, people-oriented motel owners ever! From the minute you make your reservation to long after you depart, you know you've made two BFF's. The comfort and cleanliness of the rooms, the pool, the evening campfires, the breakfast to start your day, and the overall ambiance of the Mountain Brook Lodge make it a place... More
