Visted July 22-24 and loved the hotel. Staff was kind, dined at the Acorn grill and food was good yet expensive. Only two other families were in the whole restaurant. Waterpark was included in our package and was small but fun. Not sure if I would pay the extra $$ for admission otherwise. We went to hope lake next door... More

Took a lovely drive across northwestern NY to stay at HL Lodge with the family for two nights. Lovely spot 20 minutes outside of Cortland. Very laid back and quiet. Kids had fun in the waterpark which is a scaled down version of Great Wolf Lodge. Highly recommend the Adventure Center across the street for zip lining and coaster ride... More

We stayed at the lodge 7/21-7/23. We were a family of 6 adults and 6 children 10 & under. The waterpark is wonderful for any children 12 and under (over 12 might be bored with this waterpark). The lodge is in a good location for outdoor activities like hiking and swimming (recommend you research nearby trails and state park). The... More

We just returned from a stay at the Hope Lake Lodge that was purchased through groupon. Here is what we found... Lobby: Nicely decorated and comfortable with a large fireplace and cabin décor. Exposed woodbeams and rustic feel furniture. The front desk staff was helpful and receptive to questions. Room: We stayed in a room with one queen bed and... More

Refused me a late check out, they had to unlock the gift shop every time you wanted to go in, every time I called down to the front desk I would have to call at least 5 times just to get someone to answer. Then I tried asking about all of the activities and stuff to do and all the... More

We stayed at Hope Lake Lodge through Global Vacations and the accommodations were very nice, but not stellar.However, the setting for the lodge is a lovely location in the hilly countryside of central New York. The one mile walking trail is marked so you know how far you travel. There is plenty of grass around the resort, so lots of... More

We recently stayed at the hope lake lodge and had a wonderful time. The whole finger lakes region is absolutely gorgeous. The water park is small but packs in a lot in the relatively small space. Kids went daily and had a great time. Acorn restaurant is not bad but much better options are available within 30 minutes drive. The... More

The hotel has a relaxing rustic design, nicely fitting in the environment. The room was spacious and clean, equipped with almost everything you need, very comfortable. The view from the room is gorgeous. Balcony is a very nice feature. Service is great. The hotel is located about half an hour away from Ithaca, and about 15 minutes away from downtown... More

My husband and I were planning a short family getaway and our other hotel plans fell through, so I found this resort on Trip Advisor and it was an excellent choice for our 4 year old twins and 1 year old. I originally booked a townhouse for 3 nights with the Splash and Stay package. We arrived late in the... More

Our first time here. Had a few days to spend prior to a baseball tournament in Cooperstown. Had an excellent time. Rick and Shelby at the front desk were quite helpful to us. The water park is well suited to all ages but probably the little ones would appreciate it most. Incredibly helpful staff, clean and beautiful views. Great walking/jogging... More
