You just found the perfect Whiteface-Lake Placid Lodge!

We stayed at this terrific lodge for the Empire State Winter Games. Our group consisted of one coach, four teenage Alpine ski racers and six additional parent-spectators. We had plenty of room- the two sleeping wings of the house worked out great.
There are many places to stay in Lake Placid, but if you are on this site considering the Descente Lodge go ahead and book it! You won't be disappointed.
I will first start with compliments of the Lodge's manager, Dawson. He was very helpful and extremely easy to communicate with-making our stay a great one right from the booking. He sent me a floor plan and went over travel directions, which are very easy even if you are a Lake Placid first timer. We ski race every year in Lake Placid and I will say, that we found the best place this year- Descente Lodge. Our stay included a noreaster with about 16" of snow, and the driveway was kept plowed throughout the storm. It is a very quick drive- 6 miles to the mountain, which is great for those coming to ski. The town( Lake Placid) is even a bit closer- only 3 miles.
The lodge was comfortable, clean and spacious, with lots of character and history. We loved it and we had a great stay.Thank you Dawson and your family for sharing this great family lodge with others.
