Lake Placid Lodge

Lake Placid, NY
Best Hotels #1 in Best Adirondacks Hotels
  • 4.5-star Hotel Class
  • Good Critic Rating
  • TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
  • View 10 photos

This rustic lodge set on the shore of Lake Placid in the Adirondacks is stunning inside and out, according to recent guests. Typical of most Relais & Châteaux properties, accommodations are exquisitely designed with rustic objets d'art, custom-made beds crafted from tree limbs and the occasional private balcony overlooking the waterfront. And then there are the hotel's romantic cabins, which offer couples a more secluded (but still lavish) retreat. Travelers love the dining at Artisans restaurant and Maggie's Pub, but are split on service. Some said the hotel staff members go above and beyond to provide first-rate service, while others encountered slow dinner service and less-than-impressive wait staff during recent stays. Do note that the Lake Placid Lodge only welcomes guests ages 12 and older. Also keep in mind that if you frequent Relais & Châteaux and are part of the hotel's exclusive Club 5C, you are eligible to receive extra perks, such as complimentary room upgrades, for choosing to stay here. more

Perched on Green Island in Bolton Landing, New York, The Sagamore caters to families with its plentiful lodging options. The resort features 137 classic guest rooms and suites that can be found in the Historic Hotel, while more affordable rooms and suites are tucked in The Lodges. Then there are The Hermitage and Wapanak Castle, two distinct buildings usually rented out to families as well as large groups. Recent guests recommend kid-friendly amenities like the seasonal Sagamore Kids Club and The Rec, an all-ages activity center with Nintendo Wii and Xbox stations, arcade games and even an indoor mini-golf course. And the Lake George waterfront activities — like kayaking, canoeing and fishing — are popular pastimes, as well. After participating in outdoor pursuits, you can retreat to one of the resort's eight on-site eateries. Although recent guests concede the meals here are pricey, they say they're well worth the cost, citing top-notch service and delicious bites as particularly memorable. And while past visitors loved the ample on-site activities, many noted that the rooms are in need of a facelift. more

The Whiteface Lodge exudes a warm, cozy atmosphere. Exposed wood beams, pine dining chairs, granite hearths, mounted animal heads and chandeliers crafted out of deer antlers deck the lodge. And the list of rustic touches goes on and on. Families flock to Whiteface for the mélange of kid-friendly entertainment, including a 56-seat surround-sound movie theater, a 10-pin bowling alley and a game room chock-full of foosball and air hockey tables. And the inviting accommodations are a big hit, too, thanks to amenities like full kitchens and European-style laundry units. Recent travelers also appreciate the suites' Adirondack-style accents, custom-designed pillows and private balconies overlooking the surrounding mountain landscape. The culinary offerings available at KANU dining room and lounge, as well as the shakes and swirls available at the Old Fashion Ice Cream Parlor, receive high praise for previous visitors as well. more

Overlooking Lake Placid's main street from a hilltop perch, the Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa has been an Adirondack mainstay since 1883. The resort is filled with exposed wooden beams and cozy fireplaces reminiscent of the lodges of yesteryear, but Mirror Lake is still catching up to the times. Accommodations are outfitted with wooden furniture, vaulted ceilings and expansive windows that offer views of Mirror Lake and the surrounding mountains — and recent visitors say the panoramas are stunning. When it's time for some R&R outside your digs, head to the spa for a massage or body scrub, or take a dip in the hot tub. Aside from its location and ample on-site amenities, travelers also praise the delectable culinary offerings available at The View, Taste Bistro and The Cottage. more
