Lake Placid is full of gorgeous, romantic hotels.  One of its finest is the Whiteface Lodge, which sits on a hillside just a few blocks from the village of Lake Placid, sheltered by a forest pines and spruce trees.  Staying at Whiteface Lodge is like staying at one of the Great Adirondack lodges of the late 19th and early 20th century.  It is a rustic mountain lodge that sacrifices none of the luxuries you would expect from an exclusive resort.

Imagine driving down a wooded lane and coming upon a rustic log cabin.  As you drive up a valet is ready to take your car and you are whisked into the lobby, decorated with birch tables, mixed floral arrangements, and the rustic trappings of a grand Adirondack lodge.  From there on out everything you could hope for will be taken care of for you until the end of your stay.

The magic begins before you even make it to your room.  Find fresh lemonade and delicious chocolate chip cookies in the lobby, perfect after the journey to Lake Placid.    In your room you’ll find a bed with crisp, white linens and a plush down comforter and pillows.  You’ll also find comfy couches set up in front of a fireplace and a patio perfect for lounging with a glass of wine.   The bathroom is equipped with a Jacuzzi tub/shower and a heated floor for cold mornings.
