Simple but clean and charming accommodations, very friendly owner. Rooms have lots of pine and bunk beds that look brand new. Beds are comfortable and hot water is super hot. Perfect place to stay if you are visiting Santa's workshop. Would definitely stay again. Discount for Veterans.

This review is long over due, but the couple that own the lodge (Al & Alicia Armstrong) were so memorable that months later I knew I needed to come back and give them an amazing review! My boyfriend and I were there this summer (2014 for an annual softball tournament). We met Al at the ballpark and he invited us... More

This was my first visit to Mountain Brook Lodge and it was great! I'll definitely be back. I have stayed at several places in the High Peaks region and am finding myself gravitating towards Wilmington more and more. It's a short drive from Wilmington to Lake Placid or Keene/Keene Valley (not to mention on the doorstep of Whiteface). They have... More

As someone who is used to 4 & 5 star hotels, I chose this place as an added trip experience because of its "camping" vibe (with all modern day amenities, of course). I like to try different stuff sometimes..the bigger hotels are typical- why not mix things up a bit? This was so much more than we had expected! Absolutely... More

You need to pick this motel for your stay in Wilmington, NY. Owner Al is the nicest guy and does everything he can to make you feel home. Rooms are very clean and well equipped, free breakfast is really good - fresh bagels, good coffee and good orange juice. At night, Al will light up a campfire and invites every... More

We stayed at Mountain Brook Lodge for four nights and were very pleased. The room was large and very reasonably priced. Our host Al was very attentive and helpful. The breakfast was included and had hot and cold cereal, fruit, bagels, orange juice and coffee. There was even a gathering around a bonfire one night. It is located about 10... More

Al, the owner, made us feel at home from beginning to the end of our week's stay. Rooms were nice and clean..a true value considering its near Whiteside Mt, Lake Placid, and spectacular scenery. And...being former campers the nightly meetings around the outdoor firepit were great for making new friends.. and one event we looked forward to daily. We are... More

Have you ever stayed in a motel and the only time you see the staff is on check in and check out? THIS IS NOT THAT PLACE!! Al and Alicia are the most welcoming and accommodating innkeepers I have ever met. They will do whatever it takes to make you feel at home. Great breakfasts and huge bonfires make for... More

He made a great fire which we sat out with him and another couple. we loved his... More

We recently booked one night at the Mountain Brook Lodge as we were only passing through the area. However, we enjoyed our first night by the fire so much we decided to stay a second night. Al and Alicia were very accommodating, could not do enough to make our stay as pleasant as possible and their advice on area attractions,... More
