We stayed from 11/27-29 and the water park was great. It was smaller than expected but our children in the age of 3,7,and 14 enjoyed every moment and the hot tub that's connected to outside. The thanksgiving dinner was just okay for the price of $160 but we loved the full kitchen in the room. we will definitely come back.

I'm in my late 20's and I TRULY enjoyed the indoor waterpark! It was nice and steamy inside so you can enjoy the park as if it were a hot summer day. I love that in the pool and hot tub, there is a lead-way from indoors to outside! AWESOME! The rooms were spacious and had everything we needed for... More

This is my family's third year coming to the Hope Lake Lodge. The kids have a great time in the water park. The rooms are very nice and have gas fireplaces and full kitchens. Kids craft room is sweet and there is facepainting in the lobby each day at 4:00 with cookies :) The staff is young and not properly... More

We surprised our 5 and 7 year old with a stay at Hope Lake Lodge in November 2014. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the beautiful grounds and kind staff. My husband had made surprise appointments for pedicures for myself & 7 year old. The spa was gorgeous and relaxing. The ladies that did our pedicures were very nice and... More

Four of us shared a suite and it was awesome. 2 bedrooms/3 baths/kitchen. The only drawback was the lack of seating in the common room - though not sure how they would accommodate more seating due to the size. This suite sleeps 6, had a table for 4 and only 2 chairs on the balcony (but with the snow that... More

A beautiful resort with amazing views. The staff is friendly, helpful and courteous. The rooms are clean and spacious. We enjoyed the water park and especially the in/out door pool, as well as the hot tub. It was fun soaking and swimming outdoors while snow was falling. We highly recommend the resort!

We spent a long weekend at Hope Lake Lodge and were pleasantly surprised. Our room wasn't huge (one bedroom loft) but was plenty big enough for us (2 adults, 2 young kids). It was clean and comfortable with nice amenities. I can't say enough about the staff at the property - they were all very friendly and very helpful. We... More

We stayed four days at Hope Lake Lodge for a NYS Outdoor Writers' Association conference. We were more than pleased -- everything was excellent. The facilities were absolutely beautiful and the rooms attractive and well designed. All the amenities, decorations, and housekeeping services were top notch. All the services from check in, to questions and requests, as well as waitresses,... More

The New York State Outdoor Writers Association held its annual conference at the Hope Lake Lodge. I can say, as the outgoing president, that I found our accommodations to be very comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. My wife, who spends more time in our room than I do, was one happy lady. One elevator was down for part... More
