Wildwood on the Lake
Ranked #13 of 31 Hotels in Lake Placid
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 July 2011

My family just got back from a fantastic stay at the Wildwood. this family owned motel is charming, clean and great for families. the owners were helpful and friendly, going above and beyond.

When we first arrived, we had booked the 2 br kitchenette, but because it is not on the lake, they insisted we see a lakeside room. We decided to stick with our original choice, but we were impressednwith their desire to make sure we were happy.

The lake fed pool was perfect. It's about the size of a typical hotel pool overall, but with a wading area perfect for our 4 yr old. The indoor pool was also nice and clean. We also enjoyed taking the boats out and the nightly fire on the lake.

The kitchenette unit had the usual amenities, including a stovetop, microwave and fridge. From what I saw of the other room, it also seemed quite large. The beds were comfy and the shower worked great.

I really can't say anything negative, because the Wildwood made our stay so pleasant. we would definitely stay there again.

My family ( kids aged 10 yrs and 8) have just spent five nights at this place. We were only going to spend four nights but extended the stay. We allloved iit. Our cabin was well laid out and the view from our porch was spectacular. There is large grassy area leading down to lake where many chairs are available to waste the time away reading a book or just looking at the mountains. Each night the hosts light a fire right next to the lake. There are kyaks, wheel boats, canoes and row boats all available for use.The kids all went fishing and chased frogs only a few steps from our cabin door. At other times they were in the lake or indoor pool.The hosts and staff were very friendly and did their best to ensure our stay was trouble free I would recommend this place to family,couples or any person wanting
a quiet break.

This motel located towards the west end of Lake Placid is modern, clean and close to some restaurants. Our room had fridge & microwave with excellent sitting area outside our door overlooking the lake. Plenty of free parking with inside corridors. The bed had bit of a dip in the middle which didn't mean a good sleep but only for one night. Hotel is biker freindly providing rags for cleaning your ride. In door pool and spa is complemented by and outside swimming area.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for our proptery. We are pleased that you found so many of the features of our property to be positive. We apologize that your sleep quality was not excellent. The beds in the lakeside rooms are new pillowtop queen size beds which might make them a little softer than non pillow top beds. We hope that you will stay with us again the next time you are in town.

Best Regards,

i can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our vacation at Wildwood on the Lake. It was everything we needed and so much more. Our cabin was clean, large and comfortable and just steps to beautiful Lake Placid. The whole complex was clean and neat, but not fancy..so relaxing in that atmosphere was a breeze. The owners/managers are on-site to answer questions and do a great job keeping things running smoothly and looking good. Location just could not be any better too.
What a stay! If you want all your cares to fall away on your vacation then make a reservation at Wildwood on the Lake!

Room Tip: I recommend Cabin 8!

We stayed in a very nice suite overlooking the lake for three nights.
Not many people around as school was not in recess yet.
The owners are always friendly and accommodating.
There is always a campfire on the lake shore each night..

My husband and I have camped for training weekends in the past but this place offers such a great value there's no need to anymore. We stayed here in may and June , once in a lakeside room and once in the pool room. Both rooms were great with plenty if room for two triathletes ample gear.

The location is great - a few minutes' bike to mirror lake and the oval. Theres a rite aid right across the street and don't miss the new leaf coffe house on saran ave. Yummy!

We book a room with Wildwood for the Lake Placid marathon. Our stay was Friday and Saturday nights. The hotel is one of the older places in Lake Placid. However, the room was great. We had a first floor lakeside room. It was extremely clean, the linens, floors and bathroom. All of the furniture was in excellent condition. The bathroom had been recently remodeled. There is an actual key for the door. The hotel is on the edge of the village and everything in town is within easy walking distance. We will stay here again. The room price was a great value and less than the majority of other hotels.
