“The absolute best vacation spot”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

We have vacationed here three times and each time the stay has been wonderful. I never want to leave the resort. I am so sad I want to cry! They have plenty of amenties to make the stay luxurious, peaceful and pampered. But at the same time it is completely kid friendly. We have stayed in the summer and winter and times my two teenage boys have never had a minute of boredom. The activities staff are attentive and enjoy working with the kids. It is four seasoned so no mattered how awful the upstate New York weather is there is plenty to do. We had friends from South Caroliina join us in July and they are already planning on comming back up in January! It is hard to sum up how much we enjoy coming to Whiteface other than to say we can think of one complaint!

Great for the whole family. We stayed for 2 nights for rugby weekend with our five children and will be rebooking for next year. Stayed in a 3 bed 3 bath and plenty of room for the 7 of us. Kids had plenty to do including free s'mores, tennis, movie, bowling, fishing, cookies. Pool and hot tubs, sauna,steam great for adults as well as kids. A bit pricey and food that we had was not great for the price, but overall we are going back. Staff very attentive.
Love it!

Room Tip: As far as I could tell looks like all rooms have a good view.

Hello,
Everything you listed is what makes the Whiteface Lodge so special, it is the people, the spacious and comfortable Suites and of course the incredible list of amenities to enjoy! I hope Rugby weekend went well and any time of year Lake Placid has so much going on and we would love to host your whole family again soon!

My family and I recently completed our latest stay at the WFL this last June. For the first time, we decided to upgrade to a two bedroom unit and it was amazing. The sheer size of the suite made it extremely comfortable for our family of four. As always, what this property offers its guests is second to none including a wonderful indoor/outdoor pool and hot tub, tennis court, movie theatre, game room including an actual two lane bowling alley as well as access to a small private beach on the lake.

Usually we stay for two nights but this time we decided to extend our stay for three nights which made us appreciate the lodge and the amenities that much more. We look forward to returning in the fall for foliage season!

Hello,
We may want to use that "A lodge like no other", really those words sum up what we try to convey in our many marketing efforts and website! The larger suites really are worth it in my opinion for families or groups of adults because the stay is more like a vacation home except there are endless amenities without ever leaving the building! Glad to hear the getaway was amazing and you extended.
Look forward to hosting you again during foliage!

We highly recommend the Whiteface Lodge for a family vacation, especially for younger children. Our five year old granddaughter attended four camps this summer, and while she enjoyed all of them she told us that Kamp Kanu was her favorite.

Hello,
If Audrey is happy we are all happy! That is great that she enjoyed the Kamp Kanu program so much and we look forward to her experiencing it again when she is 6. We are very proud of the ability of our team and resort to cater to families and couples all at once and truly if the kids are having a good time then so are the parents so it works for everyone!
Come visit again soon!

This is an awesome resort. I highly recommend it. It is close to hiking, white water rafting. We enjoyed many of the amenities. The pool, game room and breakfast buffet were great. They took great care of our family.

First time in Lake Placid but hopefully will not be the last based upon our great experience at this lodge. The staff were truly friendly and helpful. You are greeted with a smile by everyone that you pass. The rooms are spotless and the decor throughout the resort reflects a great deal of care by the owners. They have an excellent pool area,game room and workout areas. In summary, it is a classy place that is not effected. After a week you really get to know and like all the staff that you have met. This resort doesn't nickel and dime you like others .The canoes, yoga' bowling, etc. are all included in the rate. The only area that could stand improvement is the selection at the restaurant. They could have more lighter and less costly items on the menu. However ,the breakfast which was included in the rate was very good Coffee was available all day from 5.30 on.

We spent five nights in a superior suite and were very pleased. The suite was enormous, with a stylish kitchen, eating area and living room, as well as a full bath and laundry room. There was also a master suite with an en suite bathroom. Our suite was on the first floor, and our patio was the one adjacent to the public patio. On several occasions people were sitting on our patio, apparently unaware that it was not part of the public area. With that said, I would opt for a second or third floor suite next time. We enjoyed several of the resort's amenities. The pool was lovely but utterly packed to the gills with kids. We had breakfast each day as part of our stay, and enjoyed it very much. My favorite were the evening s'mores by the fire ring. The valet parking was great and the kids who worked it were super nice. We spent one day at the resort's private beach - the Canoe Club. It was lovely, but very small and quite crowded. You had to take the resort's shuttle to get there as there is no parking. In retrospect, I might opt next time to stay in one of the resorts that is directly on the Lake, even though they tend to be a bit pricier. I was happy to use the kayaks (although there were not enough kayaks for the people who wanted them). The fitness facility was very good.

This is a great family resort, so my husband and I found it a bit noisy. But overall, it was very good.
