We stayed in the newly built Skylight cabin in the 100 Acres side of the resort. It was well-made and had a great view of WhiteFace Mountain. It came with a brand new fire pit and four chairs. The inside living room had a two person sofa and a high top table for four. It had a TV with cable channels available and a fan. The blinds worked great, and there was a bottle opener on the wall! The first room had a queen bed, and the back room had two bunk beds with double beds on the bottom, twin on top. Each bedroom had hooks and a bench. Outside there was a large picnic table that could fit 8 people comfortably. It was a short walk down the hill to the bathroom, and we could watch our kids playing on the playground from our deck. If you don't mind walking to the bathroom, it was a site I would recommend for a family. There were COVID precautions taken in all places, though some employees seemed to be more serious about them than others who were complaining about them. You could easily walk 10 minutes to local restaurants or the town beach. Wilmington has a few restaurants, and it's not too long of a drive to get to Lake Placid and other hiking trails. I'm not sure if it would seem overcrowded in normal circumanstances this time of year, but it was a great place to stay and distance, but still feel like you got away for a vacation.

I tried to postpone my reservation on May 11 - That costs $20 no matter why - even with NO services at the park. No restrooms or showers are open now. Presently Wal Mart is just as good as North Pole Campgrounds. But the worst part was after I expressed my distaste for their $20 penalty they refused my reservation change and I was told "We don't want you here, we will refund all but the $20 then she hung up...Rude people. Unreasonable and argumentative. The campgrounds may be nice but I will never know..........

We booked their Giant cottage the week of September 17th to 20th. We were traveling by motorcycle and were quite disappointed when checking in that this giant cottage is just a name on the building which is squeezed in with several other cottages, these are no more than glorified travel trailers with very little hot water capacity and of course no heat yet as they must still be celebrating summer season and we were told NOT to touch the heat controls and make sure you don’t spend much time in the shower as the hot water capacity is low, in other words, if you like cold showers, this is the place for you!! My suggestion to the owners is that you might want to include that in the booking section of your website so that there might be less surprises. I returned their key after only being there 25 minutes and stayed in town at the Crown Plaza for only $ 32.00 dollars more for the same amount of time of stay and the hot water was more than plentiful and the heat worked!!!! Again, I guess more research on my part would be something they would tell me but accurate information on their website would’ve certainly saved a review like this. Very,Very disappointed and borderline pissed off with the lack of information until you’re standing at the counter and then of course, your money has been taken.

Response from North Pole Reso... I, General Manager at North Pole Resorts
Responded Sep 24, 2019
I'm very to sorry to read of your experience renting one of our very popular Cottages. My biggest concern is that you were told by someone "not to touch the heat" and to "conserve hot water". I am investigating who may have made these statements All Cottages are equipped with plenty of hot water and heat. Cottages with gas fireplaces require a quick flip of a switch to initiate the propane in the shoulder months when heat can be called for on a chilly Fall night. If there was a problem with either, a quick call to the Front Desk would have had any problem solved immediately. We did note that you left abruptly and said while leaving that "nothing was wrong - you had to go". We would have been happy to address your concerns immediately or offered you another Cottage if you weren't happy with Giant Cottage. All of our Cottages are on our website with interior photos and a map showing their location at the resort. There should never be a surprise re: what you have booked or where it is located. My main concern lies with statements made to you regarding heat and water. If by chance you remember who may have said these things, please contact me directly at DebP@northpoleresorts.com.

We stayed here for two nights. Clean clean clean. Well cared for campground. We stayed in the Gothic cabin, and it had everything we needed. The bathrooms are spotless and the showers are clean and warm. Little store has anything you could need, and more you don't need but want. Haven't explored all the grounds yet, but would come again.

we stayed two nights everything good. Our room was clean and comfortable only problem was location of air conditioner in room. Everyone working there is very friendly and helpful. Our tv did not work and someone came right away to fix the problem. Would return in the future.
