Stop reading reviews and BOOK THIS PLACE NOW. It's awesome. Margaret is professional and courteous -- we could not have asked for a better hostess. Thank you Margaret for a wonderful stay; and thank you to the Whiteface staff for their incredible hospitality.
We travelled as a family, with a 3 year old, in the fall, and stayed here for a week. Campfire s'mores at night, an action-packed games room, and an immaculate pool and spa, there wasn't a moment wasted.
Lake Placid is bustling with lots things to do no matter your tastes: outdoor activities, hikes, museums (check out the Wild Center if you have kids in tow), pubs and of course Whiteface mountain.
The weather wasn't perfect during our stay, and we barely even noticed. With so much to do on the resort, we hung around and lounged by the pool or in the suite, then went out again when the sun came out.
The lodge is stunning, well kept and clean. The staff are professional and courteous. Highly recommend.
