Schulte's Family Lodge
Reviewed June 25, 2008

We have been staying with Rolf and Birgit Schulte for the past 4 years and always enjoy our visits. The hotel and cottages are located at the south end of Lake Placid near the horse show grounds and the airport. Since we hike the high peaks it is great not to have to drive through town to get to Keene and Keene Valley.

The property has regular hotel rooms and housekeeping cottages. We have never stayed in the hotel, but have been in the rooms and they appear to be normal hotel rooms, each with a balcony or patio.

We always stay in one of the cottages. The cottages were likely built in the 1950s and are showing their age, but are always very clean. We enjoy the rustic atmosphere so the occasional hiccup (burner not working) doesn't bother us. People who are used to staying at the Ritz should probably not stay here. The cottages range in size from a double bed/kitchenette/bathroom to several rooms and full kitchens. The Schultes provide some pots/pans/plates but we have created our own portable kitchen that we bring with us. One of the cottages has a wood burning stove which really heats the place up. We stayed here when we skied Whiteface in December and we were toasty warm.

There is a nice pool on the property and a swing set for the kids. What really makes the stay for us, however, are the owners who are very friendly and knowledgeable about the area.
