Whiteface Lodge in Lake Placid, New York

Considered by many one of the best hotels of its kind in the country, Whiteface Lodge is nestled in Adirondack Park. This six-million-acre recreation area in upstate New York has drawn nature lovers for decades.

In the heart of the park on Lake Placid, the lodge evokes the region's 19th-century heyday with a wood-beamed exterior, cozy carpet-strewn sitting rooms and cast-iron fireplaces. Amenities and services are decidedly 21st-century, as is the focus on family travel and mountain escapes. The resort offers every imaginable activity for families and adult travelers.

I personally feel that this place is one of the best fall foliage destinations. The rustic, craftsmen style architecture fits into the geographical location very well. The food was really good and the breakfast, in particular was great. The dining room has a beautiful fireplace and a great view. There are plenty of private areas for you to sit and enjoy a drink, provided the mixologist is available. I wss unlucky twice at the bar before i finally got a gimlet. That said, they did comp me the drink. The service was great. The room itself is better than Stow Mountain Lodge, which was more expensive than Whiteface. I would go to Whiteface again and I probably will. The farm had radiant heat and was all high end fixtures. A very luxurious experience with out being pretentious. Add in great help at the front desk and I really think you can't lose here. Highly recommended!

My wife and I stayed for our 7 year anniversary booking was a bit of a mess but got it figured out. Dinner and the lodge were both amazing. Staff went above and beyond. We enjoyed our stay we only had one little issue it wasn't on the lodge though my wife slipped on a rug in the lobby and fell down the stairs she hit her head and hurt her ankle staff at the desk didn't come over just yelled from the desk are you ok. so we spend the evening in our room but it was still nice. Highly recommend we will be back

Needs a few improvements, but still a wonderful destination. You will enjoy your stay. Surprised by the number of children staying. Becomes impossible to use the pool. There is one hot tub for adults only. Rooms are nice, but do not have adequate light to even read by. Be sure to bring a reading light. Three bedroom suite had only one hairdryer and the refrigerator freezer does not have ice.

Everything we hoped it would be. An excellent place to relax, unwind, and enjoy much needed time off. Close to several appealing local attractions, but not so close we felt bombarded with tourist traffic. The amenities were fantastic and kept the kids entertained when we wanted to sit down and have a casual conversation and meal.

This was a serendipitous road trip, and our stay here was hugely relaxing and satisfying. We visited during the shoulder season. The skiers and winter vacationers were long gone, and summer hikers and outdoors people were not there yet. This was the season of snowmelt, with waterfalls gushing down the side of the highway as we drove into Lake Placid, and rivers and streams full of roaring white water. As a result, the town and the lodge was sparsely booked. This meant that we rarely encountered other guests. At times we had the pool and spa area all to ourselves. An unexpected perk that made our visit even more relaxing was that, on a mid-week night, even though this is probably a great place for families, there were no children running around and making noise. The sauna and steam room are immaculately maintained and relaxing. We had fog and rain during our visit, but it didn't matter that much. The staff maintains the property with an outdoor fire pit even in the slow season. This provided ambience and a woodsy, wood-fire smell on the grounds in the early evening. The bar and restaurant were pretty slow on the night we stayed there, so the restaurant was closed and there was not much going on in the lounge. We visited town instead and found a local place to eat. Everyone on staff was super friendly and helpful.
