We decided to take a trip up to Lake Clear Lodge for our New Years celebration. Our family stayed in the Sundance chalet. The place was immaculate. Extremely clean. We were greeted at the main lodge front desk by Cathy who was nothing but nice and informative. She brought us to our lodge. It was cozy, clean, and had all...

I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived at the Lake Clear Lodge for a weekend-long holistic retreat; it is definitely MUCH more than just a place to stay!! The space was an integral part of the event, and I can't imagine that there is a more lovely location to host a wellness program in the entire Adirondack Park! I instantly...

We had dinner reservations for a party of 4 last Sunday. When we booked (in person) we were given a sheet with info on the dinner choices with prices. On the same sheet (other side) there is a list of "Weekly Activities" that you can choose. We chose the 30 minute History of Beer Tasting "experience" that took place prior...

Our host is a smooth operator. Lots of marketing but not much more. First Ernest took us into the beer cellar and gave a general orientation then rushed out unable to quote specific beer prices other than a range topping out at $16 a bottle. That should have been a clue that this place looks for discreet ways to up...

We had an absolutely wonderful experience at the Lake Clear Lodge. We started with beer tasting, in the lounge downstairs next to the beer and wine cellar. The tasting was fascinating and very enjoyable. Ernest was incredibly knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and engaging. From there we went up stairs and had a great multi-course fixed price dinner accompanied by wine. Ernest, his...

We were staying in a cabin just down the road and decided to check out the lodge for dinner. Given the German theme we weren't very hopeful as we're vegetarian, but the owner, Ernest, didn't hesitate a second before rattling off several options. We ordered vegetable strudel and mushroom schnitzel and that was our best meal out in ages, certainly...

The Lodge is an excellent venue for business and personal retreats. Cathy and Ernest are wonderful hosts with big ideas and lots of hospitality. The lodgings are what you would imagine in the mountains, year round chalets accommodate large groups; although we stayed in the main lodge in the Canopy room, perfect for two people. Thank you for renewing my...

My friends and I were staying in Lake Placid and looking for a fun activity. We took the sleigh ride and stayed for dinner. The sleigh ride was magical - the horse mother daughter team were so sweet and pulled us through the snow covered, lantern lit woods. Afterwards we warmed up by the fire after selecting our drinks from...

Cathy and Ernest do an amazing job making you feel welcome. The setting is beautiful. We are cyclists and ADK is a great place to cycle. You MUST do the railbiking. The food is a little unusual so ask lots of questions. Cathy is a wealth of knowledge about nutrition and conducts interesting and informative nutritional and wellness classes. Ernest...
