8 of my girlfriends have been hiking in this region for 20 years and we always stay here whenever possible. Our last visit was this past weekend - October 14-16, 2016. I am so happy we stumbled upon this place; it is our home away from home in the mountains, and the proprietor Wayne Failing treats us like family. The... More

We really enjoyed our weekend stay in one of the cabins. It was snowing outside and we were warm and comfortable in the little cabin. Comfortable bed and linens, everything thought of for the kitchen, great shower. We had a great time in Lake Placid and would do the cabins again!

We rented one of the cabins (the Iroquois) as our base for a long day hike up Marcy and Skylight. The property was easy to find, very quiet, fantastic views, and comfortable! Cabins have all the amenities you need to cook and feed yourself, Adirondack chairs for relaxing outside, common firepit and picnic tables, wifi, and an excellent host! Would... More

Great stay at Van Hoevenberg Cabins. Keep in mind that this is not a 5 star hotel but a Cabin so no chamber maids to clean up after you. Very rustic atmosphere & great experience. We rented the Algonquin Cabin that sleeps four people. My teen aged son enjoyed sleeping in the loft & loved his own little space. Our... More

The cabins are no-frills but priced accordingly. The owner, Wayne, is a nice guy who knows a lot about the area. We stayed in the Marcy cabin for two nights over Valentine's Day weekend. You get a fridge, stove w/ pots and pans, coffee maker, warm heat, linens, a double bed, and a table with two chairs. Everything was clean.... More

Cabins were small but cozy. The rates are very reasonable. It has everything you need for a weekend getaway, including everything you need for cooking (pots, pans, plates, cups, silverware, etc.). We loved the way the cabins were decorated. It felt very woodsy and warm. If you're used to more luxurious accommodations, this isn't the place for you. But if... More

We have stayed at the cabins a couple of times in the winter with a group. The cabins are small, but cozy. The owner/ manager was very accommodating.

We stayed in one of the studio cabins rather than the house. The cabin was extremely small (half the size of a typical Manhattan studio), but since it was for me and my now-husband it was fine.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
At Van Hoevenberg Lodge & Cabins we have four charming Adirondack style cabins with full-sized beds that can comfortably accommodate either solo adventurers or couples. We also have two family cabins that can sleep four people, and one cabin with a twin bunk bed for two people. Each self-contained, heated cabin contains an efficiency kitchen and its own private bathroom located on a five acre property with beautiful mountain views. Our guests have access to a fire circle with free firewood and a barbecue. Mt. Van Hovenberg Lodge is a five bedroom, two bathroom farmhouse with a fully equipped kitchen, an indoor and outdoor porch, dining room, living room, and breakfast area, that sleeps 12 people in 4 single and 4 double beds. With over 30 years of local guiding experience, your host, Wayne Failing, can help you plan your adventures. There are 30 miles of running, cross country skiing and biking trails which can be accessed from the back yard. We are only 1 mile from the Cascade and Pitchoff trailheads and Cascade Lakes, and only a few miles from Adirondack Loj. We are less than 10 minutes from the Village of Lake Placid and less than 20 minutes from Whiteface Mountain. ... more   less
