I rarely write online reviews good or bad, however after my recent stay at Mountain Brook I feel compelled to let Al and Alicia know what I wonderful stay I had. Typically on my annual ski trips to Lake Placid I stay in town at one of high priced national chains. However a trusted local ski pro/guide suggested Al and his Mountain Brook Lodge located only a few minutes from Whiteface Mountain while still very close to town and other Olympic locations. Like so many have previously said the service was above and beyond the ordinary that you forget how much the personal touch is missed, such as leaving the door to my room unlocked to accommodate for my late arrival, to serving a better continental breakfast then I've had in many of the national chains, to offering coupons and suggestions for dining and activities to personally coming to the room to say farewell and wishing safe travels. Even the gift shop was stocked with quaint gifts at reasonable prices. Al's patriotism and treatment of vets is beyond reproach. And of course there's BamBam!!! All this at rates that are far below national averages for discount chains that offer much less for much more. Al runs a perfectly charming quaint cozy lodge that is a picture postcard amongst the scenery. I've always heard Lake Placid is better in summer and have told Al I'll be back and when I arrive I'm staying at the Mountain Brook Lodge!

Thank you for the absolutely beautiful review!!! We can’t wait to see you again. Especially when it’s warmer! I wish I knew who sent this so I can be more personal. Mtbrook@frontiernet.net BamBam will be here!!

My 13 year old son and I thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Mountain Brook Lodge. The owner, Al, was super friendly and accommodating and helpful. He made great recommendations for eating out and even had some coupons for us to use. The room was quaint, cozy, and clean. The mattress was super comfortable and the room was so quiet I didn't need the ear plugs I usually depend on. The location was very convenient, close to Whiteface and downtown Lake Placid. The bathroom was on the small side but ample room for the two of us, and the shower had plenty of hot water for two not-so-short showers after a full day of skiing and snowboarding. My son insists we go back and I am in full agreement!

We've been coming to the area for ski vacations for many years, but someone recently told us about Mountain Brook Lodge and we thought we would give it a try. We arrived late at night and our rooms were clearly marked and ready when we got there. The rooms were clean, cozy and well equipped. They had more space than an average hotel room and the price was significantly less. The next morning we met Alicia and had a wonderful continental breakfast - far more expansive than any other hotel breakfast! The following day we met Al and his adorable dog BamBam. We had so much fun playing with her, feeding her eggs and giving her belly rubs. We asked if we could do a late checkout so we could make the most of our last day and Al and Alicia were all to happy to oblige. On the day we left, Al came over personally to see us off. He played with our dog Ginger and took a great picture of her before we left. He gave our kids a souvenir and didn't want to accept payment for a large bottle of maple syrup that we purchased from the gift shop. All in all this was a great experience - like being with family. We will definitely be back!

There are no words that can really express how this place stole my heart. There is so many wonderful things that I want to say and don't know where to start. First off, Al, the owner of this gem, he is a sweet heart, my child told me that he reminded him of his loving grandfather, he is that amazing. He made us feel right at home. The place, this is a hidden gem, it really is home away from home. Beautiful and cozy rooms (cabin like feel), clean and well kept, the bonus? Small electric fireplace really adds a nice touch and really warms up the room and believe me it was super cold those days (dec 30-31). It was a really short stay since we only wanted our kids to see snow for the first time, and they had a blast, they played with the snow in a outside seating area near a wonderful fire pit where we were having a blast telling stories while our kids were making a snowman. Another spotlight was Bam Bam the dog of the owners, she stole my heart and my kids loved her. Of course this review wouldn't be complete if I don't say that the location is perfect, right in the middle of a charming small town and near all the fun, 5 mints away from White Face Mountain and 15 mints from Lake Placid! Words can't really express of how blown away we were by this Hotel and their owners. We are already planning our next family visit. Thank you so much for everything Al.

The owner Al was just the nicest man. Rooms were spotless, beds very comfortable and room, very warm, (we stayed in December - bundle up, it's cold up there!) Probably the best continental breakfast I've ever seen - the best and largest selection, much better than the largest hotel chains. Each room had individual electric fireplaces, which was a nice surprise. Quaint, country, cozy. We look forward to going back up. Also, forgot a coat in the room and the owner sent us the coat immediately! We appreciate nice people like this owner. Thanks again Al!
