One of the most popular resorts in Lake Placid, the Whiteface Lodge is every bit worth its reputation. Don’t let its name confuse you, however, the lodge is not located on Whiteface Mountain, although it does provide a connection with ski deals and transportation. Located closer to Lake Placid’s main village, the resort features a number of amenities, including an indoor/outdoor heated swimming pool, game room, tennis courts, and a kids’ club. Kamp Kanu’s supervised kids’ program operates daily July through Labor Day and on weekends and holidays in the winter months. The lodge features 94 guest suites with full kitchens, living space with fireplaces, balconies or patios, and full breakfast daily.

This is a beautiful facility. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful. The room was clean and spacious. The restaurants were excellent. There is plenty to do for a family with children, including hiking trails, s'mores, a game room with small bowling alley, and a movie theater. The hotel is a short drive into Lake Placid village. Near the village, the hotel has a private beach for their patrons. They have canoes, kayaks and paddle boats, as well as a beach and a snack bar. The hotel offers a free shuttle to get into town or to the beach. We had a wonderful stay here, and look forward to going back soon.
I have been going to the Whiteface Lodge with my family for the past 8 years. It’s an experience you won’t forget. You feel as if your royalty yourself. From the moment you arrive and until you leave the experience is unlike any other. The fine details that are put in place shows how much they care and value you. The quality is worth every dollar you pay. Every amenity is top notch and loved by my whole family. I have a 2, 4 and 6 year old who fully enjoy their stay and play. Please check out the website and i promise you won’t be disappointed.
