“Wonderful Winter Fun!”
Reviewed 26 January 2012

Wow. This is a great place - and if you have a dog, like we do, and if it's hard to find getaways with him, this is the place! they have charming cabins if you bring your pet (so that if there is barking it doesn't affect anyone but the cabin residents) and those cabins look like something from the 20's, with gorgeous old decorations and sensibilities, but all 21st century heating and cooling and amenities.
They arranged for x-country ski lessons for us (they supplied boots, poles and skis and would have driven us to the instructor, had we wished it), they bent over backward to be good to our dog, and to us at every turn. Great food, wonderful, hearty b-fast, great service - this place is on our "best" lists.
We had a terrific time and 3 days flew by.

Room Tip: The lodge is less expensive, and great. Just not possible for us with a dog. So shop around for th...

Dear Maryandlee,

Greetings from the Lodge, and especially from Maggie to Charlie, the Wonder Dog! Thank you very much for your kind review. Maybe next time join us in the summer so Maggie and Charlie can take a dip in the lake.

Again, thank you all for joining us.

Kind regards,

I just returned from a 3-day weekend at the Lake Placid Lodge. My family and I had an incredible time, and we think it's an amazing place! In our view, it has a magical quality – where the setting, the atmosphere, the food, and the people all blend together to help guests like us create very special memories. We enjoyed some of the great things Lake Placid has to offer while we were there (skiing, skating, events in town) -- and the Lake Placid Lodge staff went out of their way to make sure we had a great time (even setting up a cooking class with the pastry chef one morning). We really loved our time there, and I hope to return as a family in the future!!!

For me Lake Placid Lodge could be my home away from home. They have all the different senses addressed and more. I don't know where to start. The location is beautiful, the food absolutely wonderful and at breakfast you can everything on the menu so you can try it all. We loved their Hot Choc and our last morning they gave us a package of it with instructions on how they make it. I am an Interior Designer and I wouldn't change a thing about the Lodge plus I collected a few ideas. The staff is wonderful, so friendly, informative, helpful and proud of their Lodge.
They have a wonderful Golden Retriever who literally takes you on walks through the woods...stops at each fork in the road to make sure you know which way to go. They have a wonderful Hacker Boat that goes out each day for tours of the lake free of charge. The rooms are an Adirondack version of Ralph Lauren. None of the rooms are a like and they are so inviting.
We travel all over the world and my favorite place to go back to is Lake Placid Lodge which we visited in early Spring for the first time this year.

Dear PPP2,

We would love to be your home away from home. Thank you for choosing to stay with us and for sharing such a lovely review. We are so gratified when our guests truly enjoy themselves and are very much looking forward to spring and getting the hacker-craft back out. It is currently having the deck refinished. We can’t wait to see it. Thank you so much again. Please call on us, if we can be of any assistance whatsoever.

We have vacationed at Lake Placid Lodge for the last two summers. We were so happy to return last year knowing we were headed to a beautiful setting with outstanding service and a cozy cabin. All of our expectations were surpassed from the moment we arrived on the property, to the upgraded cabin we were offered and to the culinary skills of their chef. This is for sure one of the places we will return again and again. The lodge has nearby golf, hiking trails, kayaking, canoeing and a beach area. Although, I would recommend this place more for adults than children, there are local attractions and activities. The staff's so helpful and will graciously recommend dining spots off property as well as area day trips(if that's your thing). Lake Placid Lodge is high end but to us worth every penny.

Room Tip: The Birch cabin is cozy and close to the main lodge. However, the lake cabins close to the water ar...

The moment we arrived, Ryan gave us a fantastic tour of the Lodge with a complete history. My wife and I were in awe the moment we saw the view from the Lodge. Our mountain view cabin was incredible. I especially loved having the fireplace. The food at Soltice was delicious and Maggies Pub is a great spot for a casual meal. If I could give 6 stars, I would!

Room Tip: When we go back, we're getting a mountain view cabin again. It's worth the extra $!
