This isn't an inexpensive destination, but it is truly wonderful and restful. The staff is awesome and very helpful from the moment you pull up at their front entrance. They offer valet parking, which is very welcome during the winter months. The front desk was very friendly and answered all of our questions during our three night stay.
The rooms are so nice, and it is not at all like any hotel we normally stay in. These are exquisitely furnished “apartments” with all the perks and amenities you could think of. They are actually privately owned (fractional ownerships) and managed by the resort, but you can see why the owners chose these units for their vacation homes.
The complex features an indoor/outdoor pool with indoor and outdoor hot tubs, all accessible to the main inn by underground tunnels or through the courtyard when the weather allows. The second floor features both a fine dining restaurant and a very comfortable lounge/ bar area.
We didn’t bring children on this visit, but I can see why this would be a great family destination with all of the activities available, including a movie theater, bowling alley, game room, and nightly bon fires. Most of the activities are locating in the basement level, along with the spa, so you don’t hear anything from the rooms.
This is truly a great spot to stay when visiting the Lake Placid and Adirondack Mountains.
