Hope Lake Lodge is huge and with many things to do within 1/2 hr to 1 hour of the lodge. New restaurant across the road just opened and the lodge itself has an indoor water park and arcade that was fun for everyone. Rooms are huge though a bit dated. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Watkins Glen State Park... More

We signed up for a recent Groupon, and I'm glad we did. Our group was 2 parents and three kids aged 3, 5, and 6. Overall, we had an excellent stay, and I'd recommend it. I hope to do it again next year. Things we loved: 1) The Waterpark is great for kids aged 4-10. As other reviews noted, older... More

We stayed at the Hope Lake Lodge with a family of 5 (and 8 year old girl and twin 5 year old boys) plus my parents. We all fit very comfortably in a room that had a 2nd floor loft, living room, 3 bathrooms and a bedroom. The food was perfect for family dining - a good variety at a... More

This place had me upon entering! It's decor and high ceilings were breathtaking. Service at the service desk was very good. They were very helpful. Our room had a pull out sofa bed. The children slept nicely upon that. The room has a coffee station but to my surprise no mini fridge. All in all this has been a pleasant... More

Cannot type enough about this place. Reception to the hotel was picturesque, pleasant, and extremely welcoming. Staff could not have been more accommodating or understanding to our needs and wants. Everything needed is on site, but the town is a short 10min drive away for anything else. Took advantage of the waterpark and mountain adventures summer packages, well worth it.... More

We stayed here last summer for a long weekend. This year we stayed in the Cedar River Suite. The unit had two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room and kitchen. The web site stated that there were three bathrooms but we only had two. Everything was clean and spacious. We could have used a few more cooking utensils and pots... More

Our overall stay at Hope lodge was very nice. The rooms are great and it is nice to have a kitchen. We loved the mountain coaster and the aerial tours and zip lines looked like a lot of fun. However, the water park was very small and some of the attractions in it were even closed due to 'not enough... More

My family spent three nights at Hope Lake Lodge. We had a room with a separate bedroom and full kitchen that was spacious and comfortable. We loved the outdoor pool and hot tub and enjoyed the Cascades indoor water park. The mountain coaster across the street was a ton of fun. We left something behind on the last day and... More

We stayed at Hope Lake Lodge in November, 2015. We had used groupon coupons for several rooms. The reservation person (sorry I can't remember her name) went above and beyond to help me come up with the best set up of rooms for our extended family group. It worked out perfectly! The rooms were clean and comfortable. Some members took... More

My family and I visited this lodge last summer. We had a fantastic stay! The lodge is gorgeous and the rooms are quite comfortable.
