We came for a Lake Placid Wedding along with 200 other out of towners... Everyone stayed at the Comfort Inn where the reception was held, but we chose South Meadow Farm Lodge and we were not disappointed. Since we arrived after 8pm on a Friday night, there was a pleasant note welcoming us and telling us exactly where to find our room. The no vacancy sign goes up after 8pm because only registered guests are expected after that hour. (The family needs a few hours of time off after working each and every day too). Nancy and her whole family were extremely polite and helpful, and will fulfill your requests, if possible if you only ask them! Each 8 am breakfast included hot oatmeal fresh fruit, coffee, milk,oj, eggs with bacon or sausage, a coffee cake or pancakes or muffins etc. It was enough to keep us full well into the early afternoon. The Birdsnest was a very basic but clean room, which was perfect for our needs. We were out and about each day, since there is so much to see and to do in the area. It was nice knowing we would be returning to quiet rest and relaxation each evening. The thought of television or phone never crossed our minds and we would definitely return for future trips. Do stop in at their Maple syrup store on the premesis, where you'll find plenty of affordable breakfast treats for family and friends!
