I'd done quite a bit of research prior to booking a weekend trip for our family of 5 in an effort to find a place that would be a good fit Mom, Dad, 2 daugthers - age 22 (birthday) and 19 (both home from college + a boyfriend), and 17 year old son. We've stayed at Monhonk resort in the past for the holidays, which is a family favorite vacation resort, so had high expectations.
We certainly were NOT disappointed in our choice of Whiteface Lodge! The 3 bedroom suite was very roomy and had everything we needed. We ate at the lodge both nights (even though tempted to eat in town) and the food, atmosphere (acoustic guiter a nice surprise) were excellent. ZMom and the girls really enjoyed the spa and Dad and the boys had a great time in the game room. Even got in a family bowling contest before leaving that was a lot of fun. Everyone enjoyed the pool and outdoor hot tub (while snowing). The holiday decorations and great staff at the resort all made for a great pre-Xman getaway!
Outside the resort, the town had some great shopping and lunch spots. Outdoor activity highlight for the kids was the bobsled run! Made for some great memories for all.
Looks like we found a nice favorite family vacation getaway. It also was nice that we got the Hurricane Sandy special (we're from NJ). I'm sure the summer time would also be a good time to visit. We'll definitely be back!
