I should start by saying that the rooms here are good. They have big suites that are perfect for families. Everything is clean, there is a kids club (although it's not open that much). The water park is a nice bonus. Nothing like great wolf lodge standard but plenty to keep most kids busy for a few afternoons. The big... More

We bought a "Groupon" for Easter weekend and took 4 teenagers (17 to 20 year old from a blended family). The hotel is wonderful! Fully equiped kitchen, although we did stop to buy a couple of knives, figuring that hotel ktichens are not that equiped and were pleasantly surprised to find that we wanted for nothing in the kitchen!

Got a great deal and decided to go to Hope Lake in August. Extremely impressed with the lodge, reminds me of the "Lodge" at Vail. Rooms are clean and well appointed, the water park is spectacular for smaller kids. Salt water pools so no stinging eyes plus toasty warm. Probably good for up to tweens. There is an arcade and...

We just came back from this hotel and we loved it. We are sad to have to come back home. We had such a great time there. What really did it for me beside the accommodations, was that this place is very family orientated. The kids enjoyed very much. They have activities for kids hourly from 9 to 4 PM... More

I have thought quite a bit about what I wanted to say in this review. My wife and I stayed here for a week in July 2014. We chose this place because we are Global Discovery members and we wanted to go the National Baseball Hall of Fame. This was the closest place and we were very excited when we... More

We recently returned from a week (5 days) at Hope Lake Resort and I'm wishing I was back there now. We had such a nice time and loved our spacious suite with loft, 2 bathrooms, fireplace & full kitchen. (In spite of the full kitchen and grocery delivery, I have no intention of cooking on vacation, so the on-site restaurant... More

My wife and two kids (age 12 and 3) and I recently stayed at Hope Lake Lodge for 4 days. Our stay was wonderful. The lodge was beautiful, warm and inviting.

I found the deal on Groupon. It was a last minute booking because of another cancellation and the hotel was most accommodating. The lodge is situated in a beautiful locale. The trail around the small lake was delightful. We started out the trip not knowing what to expect, but we could really chill out in the two nights we were... More

We planned our summer trip to NYC this year and decided to take a weekend side trip up to Cortland to Hope Lake Lodge because of a Groupon deal. The lodge is very family friendly. Rooms are large with full kitchens which is a great bonus when you bring kids. We had two boys with us ages 9&10 and they... More

I purchased a 2 night, 3 day stay including 2 days of waterpark passes via Groupon. We had not read any of the reviews and really had little idea as to what we would encounter.
