I have never been to a resort this unique, this well built, and with such an ambiance that is irresistible. If you love the mountains, and you and/or your family are outdoors people who also enjoy comfort and luxury, this is the place for you. We loved it!

Great amenities...enjoyed outdoor hot tub and pool. We had a one bedroom suite that was well appointed and very comfortable. Trip was a last minute getaway taking advantage of last minute discount room rate.

Such a beautiful spot with super attentive staff. The hotel is crazy beautiful with Adirondack-style! The activities are terrific too with a game room, theater, skating, a beautiful indoor/outdoor pool and three hot tubs! Can't wait to go back!

We love WFL. We have been for couples get-a-ways and for a family outing. We generally go off-season when the lodge is quieter and still there is plenty to do around the property and in Lake Placid. The property has nice family-friendly hiking trails and we always take

I suspect the closest airport would be Burlington VT or Plattsburgh NY. Neither are very close. I would highly recommend renting a car when you get there. Otherwise call Whiteface Lodge and ask them what it would cost to be picked up. (Rent a car)

Sorry I didn't try using room service. But i think it is available. The few times i asked for any help with our room, my questions were quickly answered & taken care of

Breakfast was big and hearty and amazing. I brought some craft beers with me and had one in the movie theater, one in the pool area, and so on. Nobody seemed to notice. I don't think I'd hunker down in front of a fireplace with a cooler, per se....but a discreet beer or cocktail here or there is unlikely to draw any attention.

In the good weather, maybe but it's a good walk to the main town. There are smaller stores along the way. There are also many things to do onsite for all ages. There is a shuttle too I think.

What restaurants do you recommend for lunch/dinner? Thank You
we always go to the Lake Placid Pub and Brewery . we have three young children they have a designated play area ...we offen travel with other families with small children and that is where we go for lunch and dinner every time we go to Lake Placid... yes the hotel has very good food is pricey so what we would do is order pizza and wings from one of the local places they deliver it right to the room for the kids and then we would go have a nice dinner at Kanu.... last month we had dinner at Nicolas with two families and had six children all under the age of 10.... the food was absolutely delicious every meal is hand compared scrumptious pizzas were delicious too.... .. but they didn't have a dedicated kids menu so we just had to order them some shells with sauce.... a little pricey of a place to take children but worth it if you want a really good Italian food that's genuine.. plus being a small town its restaurants hve to be good... they're not going to last very long so the established businesses have been doing something right for many years.... they have to keep the locals in the tourists happy.... enjoy!
