“Greek Peek Lodge Indoor Water Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

My wife planned a family get away weekend and I didn't want to know only to just follow our GPS. Driving for 2.5 hours and through little towns and keeping my eye's on the GPS and on the road. When the GPS was saying your destination is right ahead, I looked at my wife and said to her that we are in the middle of no where and both me and the kids looked at each other and saw nothing. When we turned the corner and started up the hill it was an amazing view of this huge lodge on top of the hill with every light on and was our location. As we pulled our car under the large entrance, we were greeted by the one of the employees and told us that he would park our car for us and "Welcome". As we walked into the lobby area of the lodge is was awesome and sounds of guests having a great time, a guy playing the piano and the fireplace on. For the kids and also for the adults, the indoor waterpark with 5 water slides, a wave pool and a heated indoor/outdoor pool and hot tub was amazing. Yes we even had snow and was amazing to do. Great food at the lodge, the pizza was excellent too. I would go back, the views are great of the slopes and a skiers dream. AAA++++

Room Tip: We had a Econo room that had a stove and fridge and a mini kitchen with all the plates, glasses and...

Hello:
Sometimes being adventurous can be fun for the whole family. I have a feeling that you’ll laugh about your first trip to the lodge for many years. Next time, try our tubing and mountain coaster riding and over the years you’ll learn many new things together, while you ski, hike, bike,or board and so much more. We are glad you found us and look forward to your next visit!

We had a groupon deal for the lodge and after reading some reviews I had set my expectations a little low. however, when we arrived and were upgraded into a two bedroom suite I was pleasantly surprised!! The room was gorgeous, the room was stocked with anything you could need! The beds were comfy, it was clean and the rooms were quite large!
The only complaint that I have about the rooms was that the walls are pretty thin and you can hear people in other rooms at times!

Everyone on the staff that we encountered was friendly and helpful.

The resturaunt is a bit pricy but the food was very good. We made our own dinner the second night!

We had read that the waterpark was small so we planned to visit the waterfalls in Ithica. They are beautiful. We did go to the waterpark. It is kind of disappointing and if I had to pay for it I would have been very upset. It is not worth the money they would charge to get in. Not to mention the time we were there two of the four waterslides were closed. That was disappointing. If you are going to the waterpark don't have high expectations.

My kids splurged and bought me a massage at the spa. The spa was very nice, I just wish I would have been a little more "pampered" They kinda just put you in a room, get your maddage and then you go. I feel like...give me a robe, offer the sauna and shower to me...wishful thinking I guess! Not to knock the spa though, it was a completely enjoyable experience. The massage was great!

Overall, it was a beautiful place and we did enjoy our time there!! We would definately return, maybe next time to ski!

Hello:
Glad that you liked the hotel rooms. Since you are traveling here from Ohio I was very glad to hear that you visited the Ithaca Gorges. They are worth the trip. It is unfortunate that you did enjoy the massage from the therapist at our spa; however, the overall service was a disappointment to you. We will use this review in our training, thank you for letting us know. Thank you for your visit. We look forward to your next visit to the Fingerlakes Region.

I had never heard of Hope Lake Lodge prior to traveling there for business earlier this month. I really wasn't sure what to expect since I assumed that I was familiar with the majority of travel destinations in the region. On our way up the hill, the vast size of the lodge left me awe struck. Walking through the door, your eyes are instantly drawn to the floor to ceiling fireplace, as well as the beauty of the view that can be seen through the vast expanse of windows in the lobby.

We were greeted by their professional and courteous staff who went above and beyond to ensure that we were comfortable and had everything that we needed.

The accommodations at the lodge were clearly well thought out - from their LEED certification to fully equipped kitchens in the suite - they took care of everything!

Although there wasn't enough time to take advantage of all of the fabulous amenities offered by the lodge (spa, indoor water park, adventure park, arcade), it's great to see a place that offers so many options.

I will definitely be headed back to Hope Lake Lodge with my family!

Room Tip: Every room in the house is amazing!

My wife and two young children have spent two weekends at the Hope Lodge this year. We had a great time and our children really enjoyed the diverse activities that they have such as the water park, kids room with multiple activities and the arcade.

The staff was great as they were very attentive and followed up on everything that you spoke to them about. I would especially like to recognize Rochelle Drum and Tim Fulton who went over and above to make our stay a success!

Hope Lake Lodge has a year round outdoor pool connected to the indoor water park. Great fun for kids of all ages. The lodge itself looks brand new and has everything from fitness area to restaurant. Rooms are spacious with full kitchens. There are outdoor activities but the weather wasn't conducive during our stay.....HLL had everything we needed on site (isn't much else around). Would definitely stay again.

Hope Lake was absolutely perfect for a long weekend getaway for our family. With two children ages 8 and 4, the amenities at Hope Lake truly met every need we could possibly have when it comes to traveling with children. The facilities were lovely and immaculate; the decor was warm, rustic and friendly. The customer service at every level was top notch. The Waterpark was a major highlight, and the Arcade was a nice touch for the kids. There were activities and entertainment galore. Being a mom, though, what gave me the biggest thrill was our room. The decor was themed, the fireplace was a big hit, and the full kitchen made the entire weekend so much easier. We didn't have to run out for every little meal or snacks. It really makes a big difference. We did enjoy dinner at the Acorn Grill. The lobster mac n cheese especially gets a big thumbs up. We left talking about how we will definitely plan a return trip at some point to do some snow tubing. If we had this good a time on a dreary early November weekend, the winter must be simply magnificent!

Room Tip: For a family of four, the Northwoods room is perfect. One queen bed with a full pull out sofa left...

You have to love this place. Set out on acres and acres right next to a lake. What a great lodge, awesome waterpark, and don't forget about the endless outdoor activities. Fantastic stay. I love all of the themes throughout the lodge. Animal themes on each floor. Also, the restaurant was awesome. Ate there daily and was never disappointed. And the service was great. Highly recommend.
