“This resort does not disappoint!!”
Reviewed December 14, 2011

This was our second stay within a year and it was fantastic. Great view of the lake. Reasonably priced. Friendly accommodating staff. Clean rooms. Ours had a jacuzzi which we used after our walks into town and back.We even had a fire place which added nicely to the ambiance of our entire experience. Great for families and groups as well as just a get away for couples. Pharmacy across the street and one of the original Howard Johnson's restaurants next door for breakfast. Thank you Weber's see you soon.

Room Tip: Lake views are truly beautiful

We selected this hotel because of its proximity to Main Street and its good value. We were not disappointed.

It was very cozy and clean. Our room was nice and a had a lake view from the balcony. In the evening we hung out in the lodge's common room and unwound from the work week over hot cider, books and knitting.

And it was a quick walk to the town. As another reviewer had mentioned, Stuart was a fantastic host. We chatted with him for a bit about the town and the town's history. In addition, we didn't have a car, so the next day he drove us from the hotel to the airport so we didn't have to take a taxi. It was very kind of him.

We look forward to coming back!

We had two peaceful, relaxing nights in this cosy lakeside motel and I wish we could have stayed longer. Stuart is an excellent host who drove us into town to show us recommended bars / restaurants and lit a welcoming fire by the water for us. Our bed was so comfy it was hard to leave, and we had an open fire in our room as well. Once we forced ourselves to venture out we found Lake Placid to be a real delight, with plenty of places to eat and drink and very friendly residents. Our room had a beautiful view although I was sad not to see the beaver. Maybe next time!

wildwoods is a wonderful discovery - very affordable but much nicer than any of the more expensive hotels we saw. My husband and I spent the night here in November on our way up to Montreal for a conference, and wish we could have stayed longer. From the front the hotel is not impressive, on the main road, but once you enter and go out to the back it is heavenly, quiet and tranquil, backing onto lake placid with stunning views. We will definitely be back in the spring/summer with our children.

Room Tip: get a lake side room to exit right onto the lake. Lake view rooms are lovely too.

In December 2008 (Christmas week) we (two adults and one child spent 8 nights in the kitchenette suite right behind the reception. Two main things that attracted us were a very decent price and a kitchenette. We didn't regret our choice. Suite was clean, comfortable and had more than enough space for our skiing equipment. Owners were nice and helpful. One thing that bothered us at the end of our stay were noisy upstairs neighbours, but it was not management fault. In October 2001 (Columbus day) we went to Lake placid fro hiking and after long research decided to stay at Wildwood again. As the property was not new in 2008, I was afraid to see signs of deterioration. NO, everything was the same quality as four years back. Plus we were able to enjoy beautiful ground and lake.
I wood recommend this Wildwood for people, who doesn't need luxury, but like to have homelike place with good consistent service and perks like lakes, boats and campfire.

Always enjoy our time in Lake Placid. Wildwood is right on Lake Placid. The Lakefront rooms have a wonderful view. Campfire was lit each night we were there. Our in room fireplace felt so warm. The Webbers are wonderful hosts. Canoes, paddleboats, kayaks, and row boats availiable for guest use. two pools and great reading areas throughout...sooooo relaxing...Can't wait to go back !

Room Tip: September is beautiful and you avoid the busy season. Had the indoor pool to myself most of the time...

My wife and I came into Lake Placid on Friday Oct 7, 2011. We just happen to stop at Wildwood on the Lake. They only had one small one available so we booked it for two nights .... what luck. The place, people, and owners were so nice. Nothing real fancy and certianly not expensive for Lake Placid. Just real comfortable from the rooms to the owners. We ended up staying an addition few nights and eventually had to leave. Although we did not want to. I have read the two reviews below and agree 100% with them. Could not have said it better!

The nightly fires at lakeside was what sold it for me .... can't wait to go back soon. If you are in Lake Placid don't look anywhere else just stay with Wildwood.

Thanks for a great four nights.

Room Tip: Take a kayak out into the lake between 5:30 and 7:00 pm. The sun settng on the water and mountains...
