My boyfriend and I recently stayed at Wildwood on the Lake in Lake Placid, and I was very suprised and apalled to hear the negative comments in regards to the motel. We stayed in Cottage 18 which overlooks an all natural lake fed pool, which in case some people do not realize an all natural lake fed pool is fed with Lake water therefore if the water is not crystal clear it is because the lake is not crystal clear which in most cases it is not. The lake fed pool is absolutely refreshing and the fact that it is not treated with chemicals makes you feel as if your swimming in the lake itself. When booking my reservation I was informed that cottage 18 was not on the lake, but that it overlooked an all natural lake fed pool. Being on the lake was not a priority to us as we were easily able to acess the lake and utilize the boats/barbeques/and fire pit. The room decor was also very rustic and charming perhaps when stating that something is not something we should examine what the word actually means. Rustic furniture is defined as made of roughly dressed limbs or roots of trees, as garden seats. We have similar furniture in our home, and it is very costly to purchase "rustic" furniture.It was a very charming experience. It definately gave off a family owned and operated vibe as the owners were easily accessible for all questions. We enjoyed our time here very much and look forward to returning.
