“Al and Alicia Have The Best Place to Stay in the Wilmington Area.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2014

Wilmington is a nice quiet area away from the big crowds in Lake Placid. This was the third year in a row we stayed at the Mountain Brook and the place is better than ever. Brought the whole family, took up four rooms and all were nice. Plenty to eat for breakfast, Al doesn't skimp here. The pool area is nice and there is a big campfire every night, weather permitting. Plenty of hiking and other activities close by. Call Al for reservations way ahead of time because the place fills up fast. Will definitely be back next year.

Room Tip: Book directly with Al, all the rooms are good, rooms with double beds are a lot bigger though.

The room was more than adequate, at a very reasonable price. The owner, Al, was just amazing. It was as if we were old friends, and we had come for a visit. The hospitality was great, and he gave us great ideas on what to do and where to go. We even stayed 4 nights instead of our planned 3. We really enjoyed the firepit which was burning each night (except when it rained), and it was very interesting meeting the other guests from all over the country and Canada. We would definitely stay there again, rather than in Lake Placid, which was much more expensive.

Al and Alicia Armstrong, owners of the Mountain Brook Lodge, are wonderful hosts. They are friendly, helpful, and fun but not overbearing. They make you feel like friends/family coming for an enjoyable visit. Their lodge is more like a bed and breakfast. We stayed in the summer but the room would also be wonderful in the winter months with its electric fireplace, drying racks, and cozy mountain lodge décor. We would highly recommend the Mountain Brook Lodge. Carol and Dick Fochler

We wanted to spend a couple of days at Lake Placid and not spend a fortune. We found this on Tripadvisor and luckily got the last room available. We got there, and the owner, Al, greeted us so warmly and showed us our room. Exactly what a room in the Adirondacks should be. Clean and cozy, all the amenities, a wonderful breakfast every morning. Al and Alicia were so helpful and accommodating, telling us the best sights, how to get the best value and places to eat. We have spent a great deal more and had rooms and service that could not compare to this, it is an amazing value for the very modest price they charge. We will definitely be back.

I'm just calling to know if a room is available for 2 nights, the women at the phone is answering me like shi... i'm gonna spend my money on a decent place. I'm just asking a simple question and she doesn't take time to answering me and hang up the phone. You do good buisness.

Sir, this is a total crock!
My wife is the only woman here that answers the phone. She would never treat a customer like that.
Please provide me your phone number and roughly the time you called. I will check out caller ID to see if you did indeed call.
You may e-mail me the number at mtbrook@frontiernet.net

Al Armstrong

Our family of four just came back from a trip to the Maine coast. On our way home, we stayed one night at this lodge, in a room with a double and a bunk bed. Our kids were thrilled to sleep in the bunk bed! They also liked the popcorn in the room. Al (the hotel) owner was super friendly. He offered us food to eat when we arrived late. Breakfast had more than enough varieties for us. The room was clean. It was an overall homey feeling during the stat. We highly recommend this hotel!

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.
