    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 from previous visitors as well, though others caution that high-season rates are pricey.

    Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa

    • Free Parking

    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. However, those looking to stay connected to the world bemoaned having to pay extra for Wi-Fi access. 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 & Bar and The Cottage.
