Firstly, the area of Hope Lake is AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL. The approaching drive of undulating (read: "steep") roads is awesome enough by itself. You get the impression the lodge is mainly for skiing, but they have lots of summer activities too. Six of us stayed at Hope Lodge, so we had a A, B & C arrangement - all interconnecting rooms...

We had booked a two bedroom suite and the rooms were large, with great amenities and well equipped kitchen. Friendly staff and good service overall. Water park is good but slightly pricey, as compared other water parks we have seen. Ithaca and Cortland are all nearby, where you have lots of food choices.

We had a great time at Hope Lake Lodge last summer, so we decided to come back this summer. Unfortunately a few things were lacking is time around. Last summer they offered kids face painting every day and my kids loved it. This summer face painting is only offered on Fridays and Saturdays so our kids were quite disappointed to... More

Beside it is a nice place to stay and have fun, I just want to say that the guest manager Mark is very nice and sincere in helping out the customers. We booked through Groupon with a lot of confusion. He made all the confusion go away. Overall, it is a great resort.

Pros Well-kept lake area Can rent bikes Rent fishing poles In-door water park for small kids to teenagers Decent food at restaurant (some non-fried, no-meat options) Cons Hair in the swimming pool (maybe the filters are not cleaned enough) Flies...
