Overview

  • Romantic yet rustic decor and tasty cuisine
  • Customer service received mixed reviews

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 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. 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.

A stay at this exclusive spot means you can get right onto the water: the hotel has its own boat, the 35-foot, mahogany Hacker-Craft.

A stay is pricey, but includes breakfast, afternoon tea, dinner, turndown service, and all activities on the property.

'A hidden gem tucked in the heart of the Adirondacks,' this upstate New York property has its roots in the late 1800s, when it was a Great Camp for leading industrialists and railroad magnates.
