Historical Traveler Reviews Lake Placid Lodge
This Lodge spoils you for any other place
We stayed at the lodge for 2 nights....'Hawk' Studio Cabin....the soaking tubs, impeccable room service..the breakfast was actually hot and delicious..fireplaces and unpretentious staff all help to make the lake, which is like glass, absolutely unforgettable. I can't say enough about this lodge, they accomodate your every need.
I surprised my husband on his 40th birthday with a three-night stay at the Lodge, which included suprise guests as well that the staff went to great lengths to hide until the last minute. The Lodge is beautiful; our two-bedroom cabin was perched right on the lake, and we had a never-ending supply of firewood which must have appeared out of thin air because we never saw who restocked it. Staff was courteous, polite and we were dared to ask for something they couldn't fulfill. There was nothing - it was perfect. The offerings in the restaurant were spectacular and the vegetarian dinner that was presented to me on Thanksgiving night was a feast. Think peaceful, serene and casually elegant. Thanks to all -we will be back!
Heaven in NY
This has got to be the best hotel experience in NY state. Just over 4 hours from nyc, this place is able to transport you thousands of miles away.
This was a fourth time staying at the lodge.
The grounds are just postcard perfect. The rooms (we usually opt to stay in a lakeside cabin) are unique and amazing. The food is the best outside the city.
Although there is new management including a new gm - Olivier - this place still runs like a well oiled machine with service being top on all the staff's minds.
Treat yourself to a massage outside your room.
Rude and Overpriced
We were appauled at the rude service at this resort. Our daughter brought our eight year old grandaugher down from Montreal to visit us while we were staying here and they refused to let the child come to our cabin. They said that they do not allow children on the property not even to visit. Needless to say we will never return again.
Enchanting & Memorable
My husband and I have stayed at the Lodge three or four times in the past several years. I am a consultant in the hotel industry and work on 5-star properties throughout the world. I have stayed at Peninsula hotels, St. Regis, Ritz Carltons, Mandarin Orientals, etc. There is NO PLACE in the world that I dream about returning to except this inn. It is magical (especially in winter), haunting, cozy, luxurious. The staff are inconspicuous yet completely attentive (an art!). You feel as if the entire place is your private home.If you're looking for snob appeal, don't bother. This is a casual place -- but with every amenity.
My wedding at the lodge was a day to remember
We were married at the lodge in November and could not of asked for a more beautiful setting. The staff made our special day completely flawless. When we arrived at the lodge the night before, we were greeted with a chilled bottle of champagne in our room, a fire in our fireplace and warm hospitality by the staff. Both mornings we had breakfast in our rooms and the meal was excellent. I recently received our wedding photos from the photographer, and all I can say is that the lodge is picture perfect.
We stayed in the Owls' Head Cabin which had a picture-perfect setting.
The food at the restaurant was as good as anywhere we have eaten. The service of the staff was exemplary. Simply put, we plan on returning for many years to come.
Most Romantic Place on Earth
Simply the most romantic place to spend time. From the fantastic food to the smoores at the raoring camp fire, you can't find a more relaxing place. We've stayed every year for the past five years in both rooms and cottages. The service is quiet and always exactly what you need.
Take the lake tour, sit by the bobcat statue and play cards, watch the sun on the lake ... this place has it all.
My boyfriend and I visited the Lake Placid Lodge a few autumns ago and had a truly wonderful time. The views from the lodge are beautiful..the leaves were turning when we stayed and we had glorious weather. The rooms are perfect-extremely comfortable beds, spectacular fireplace and large bathrooms with deep soaking tubs. It is so quiet and peaceful there, I wanted to stay for weeks. The staff are friendly and helpful-but not imposing. The restaurant at the lodge was wonderful-particularly the wine list. It is a perfect romantic retreat-we will definitely return!
Luxury Beside the Lake
My wife and I splurged and spent five sybaritic days and nights in a lakeside room at the Lake Placid Lodge a few years ago, and we'll never forget it. Some of the highlights: having morning coffee on the porch overlooking the misty lake; being given a complimentary bottle of champagne on our third day; reading and playing cards beside a roaring fire in the parlor; striking up a conversation in the bar with the inn's longtime bartender, a 1932 Olympian; warming ourselves next to a log fire beside the lake; a nightly fire in our room's fireplace; the feather bed; boating on the lake; taking the tram up Whiteface Mountain and riding the bobsled at the Olympic track; and the attentive service and great food in the dining room. Pricey yes, but great value. We recently received a beautiful hardcover book about the Lodge from the owners and intend to return at the earliest opportunity.

... office building with a beautiful rooftop pool. After a quick McDonald's dinner we headed to the Jazz Festival. As we walked around we found several stages at which we could stop and listen to the music. The highlight was Florence K-an amazing piano player/singer and entertainer. We headed back to our hotel late in the evening. ...
... to the Whiteface Adventure Center. Whiteface is a the 5th highest mountain in New York. We rode a gondola up to the bottom of "Little Whiteface". We spent time exploring there. Our final destination of the day had us heading to 4,295 feet (Oh no! Hoping for no altitude sickness for Mom!) to climb to the summit of Whiteface Mountain. We climbed the rocky Alpine Trail ...
The day dawned gray, overcast and rainy. Following a breakfast at Dancing Bears we headed to the Olympic Museum. Historical events in Olympic history were located here-ice skater Sonia Henie and the "Miracle on Ice" memorabilia. We saw the Herb Brooks arena where the historic game took place. Across the street ...

Family Folklore: The kids are thrilled that there is a glass shower! The door to the bathroom has an etched design which doesn't cover the whole door so....anyone taller than the design can see right into the bathroom-a design flaw!
... Too much bun, the chicken was burnt and dry, and the whole thing needed more moisture. The waitress did not come back to check on us once.
I am Very understanding and always give servers the benefit of the doubt but the service was really bad. We were ignored for the rest of the time we were there after she dropped off our food. Our friends got there 30 minutes after we did and they got a table inside and they were finished eating and left - we never ...
