“Great place treat you family.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2014

Our rugby team stays here ever year for the big Can-Am tournament. Al and Alicia treat you like royalty . The motel facilities and rooms are clean and the views from the lawn chairs are amazing. You get a great free breakfast to start the day. It is located in a cozy little village at the foot of Whiteface Mountain away from the hustle and bustle of Lake Placid but only a short drive away. There are several great restaurants close by so you can stay local and avoid the crowds. Save your money, avoid the crowds and enjoy a great Adirondacks experience.

a nifty rustic style motel , centrally located to skiing, fishing, hiking and water crafts.
a nice place for families, includes a pool, free breakfast and nightly camp fire.
a major plus is, the military and 1st responder discount, PLUS combat vets get the first night free!!
the owner al is always on the premises and has lots of usmc stories to amuse you.
each room has wifi, cable tv, refrigerator, coffee maker, etc.
rates are extremely reasonable, especially when compared to any where in lake placid.

Room Tip: rooms away from the road are the quietest

Al and Alicia are the most accommodating, people-oriented motel owners ever! From the minute you make your reservation to long after you depart, you know you've made two BFF's. The comfort and cleanliness of the rooms, the pool, the evening campfires, the breakfast to start your day, and the overall ambiance of the Mountain Brook Lodge make it a place you'll want to stay when visiting the Wilmington, NY area.

It is perfect for what we are looking for! Nice, quiet, exceptional hospitality and service. Would highly recommend to anyone that doesn't want to be in the hustle and bustle of down town lake placid.

We just got back from Mountain Brook Lodge and we miss it already. We spent last week with Al and Alicia and have nothing but good to say. We arrived early after a long 6 hour drive and were immediately accommadated. Al gave us a quick tour and I took a nap. Left Jersey at 4am. Every day there matched the weather. .awesome. My wife and daughter were able to relax as if we were in our backyard and we were surrounded by cool people, staff and guests combined. Sitting by the fire and throwin a few back with Al, Alicia and the other guests was so relaxing. I was able to use kitchen facilities to to prep dinner and cooked by the fire on Als huge grill. Breakfast was kickass and the location spot on. Beautiful view of mountain, 100 yds. to fishing, ice cream store around corner all at the foot of Whiteface. The house cleaning staff was there all day working their butts off with a smile. Cheryl went above and beyond to make our stay pleasant. She gave my daughter Jessie suprise gifts and let her borrow her IRONMAN mini bicycle for the week and kept our room alot neater then we are used to. We are going to definately request her section this fall. I am not a retired marine saergent like Al but I do know what it is like to be treated first class. Try the Mountain Brook and I assure, you will not be let down. It feels great to be appreciated, so much so Alicia convinced me to stay one more day. Look forward to watching the leaves change with the Mountain Brook this fall. Been all over Wilmington, Lake Placid area. Don't waste your time looking around, stay there, just don't take my room.

We had a great experience staying at this place. The beds are comfortable, there is high definition television, air conditioning, and plenty of food options for breakfast (which is free). They even make a fire every night for the guests to sit around and mingle, which was very unique. Everyone was very friendly. Our plan was to stay in Lake Placid, but many hotels were extremely pricy. We found Mountain Brook Lodge and it was so close to Lake Placid yet was out of the way a little bit, which made it very relaxing because we could get away from the hustle and bustle and still be to Lake Placid within minutes and not have to pay so much for a room. The rooms are very clean and so is the pool. We also really enjoyed the fact that we could see the mountains all around the hotel. Right down the road there was a beautiful park and an ice cream stand, which was very convenient. Also there was an enterance to white face mountain right down the road, which is also the entrance to the Santas Workshop in North Pole. The owner is also very friendly and makes you feel right at home. We couldn't have asked for a better experience and hotel room for our vacation.
