Dreamy Winter retreat

Jan 20th, 2020

We travelled 6h by car from NYC to spend a winter weekend where I could hit the hills on snowboard and my husband wanted a nice hotel where he could relax while I was riding in the snow. He picked up the Lodge and we really loved it. It’s a small property: 30 rooms or so and everything is well thought! The decor is cute, our room (Treetop) was amazing and their service was excellent. We had meals at their Pub, where their staff treated us like long time friends. The food from their restaurant - Artisan - was super good too. Their guest services made arrangements for us to have dinner in town and even had a private transfer to drive us around - into town and also to the Whiteface Mountain, where I went snowboarding. Can’t recommend the place highly enough!! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Last minute getaway

Jan 18th, 2020

Wasn’t sure where to stay for a last minute romantic getaway to Lake Placid. I was stuck between the Lake Placid Lodge and the Whiteface Lodge. Prior to reserving I spoke with the guest relations manager Tyler who explained what really set them apart from the competition. He was extremely helpful in making our choice to stay here, as well as assisting in getting us booked. After booking, the concierge contacted us prior to arrival to make sure we had everything we would need when we got up there. Upon arrival, the resort is breathtaking. Friendly front desk staff, champagne, and assistance with our bags to our cabin. We stayed in the Birch cabin which offered just the right amount of space for us. It was cozy with a beautiful fireplace and views of Lake Placid. It was also just steps away from the main lodge building and Maggie’s pub. Artisans for breakfast was also wonderful. The French toast was incredible. We also went to the Whiteface Lodge for a spa day. The spa over there was wonderful and also included access to their pool and hot tub’s. We went there since the Lake Placid Lodge does not have a spa, pool or hot tub. Even without these amenities, my wife and I feel we picked the right resort. A much more intimate setting. We will return. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Great views and facilities, a bit pricy with a few sticking points...

Jan 15th, 2020

We stayed for a little 2 day road trip to "The Placid" to start 2020. Now if you've read my reviews, I'm a VALUE traveler, and I do not mind spending a little more if it's worth it. I will say this place is beautiful from the moment you walk in the front door to the time they take you to your room (We stayed at THE BIRCH). We purchased the romance package which truly is the best way to go if you plan on eating at Artisan's, their onsite restaurant, because you can have anything you want, as much as you want... it's a great opportunity to try some new delicacies. THE ROOM: very comfortable bed, wonderful bathrooms with l'occitane toiletries, a cozy fireplace (more to come on that), and classic Adirondack decor. No TV, thank god... they do have WiFi, and it's pretty good. The amenities are great: free cross country skiing, snowshoes, even on onsite Lexus you can take out for a drive (first come first serve). So some of the sticking points: 1.) firewood - it is VERY WET and does not burn well. I am an experienced camper and have a wood fireplace in my home, so I know how to build a good fire. When I called the front desk unable to get a fire going, they sent a guy with more wet wood, which did not burn either. His response, and I quote: "there's nothing I can do about the wood." Correction: get dry wood! For what we paid, we should be able to have a fire. It was a struggle to keep it going both days. Second: some of the younger staff did not seem to know what they were doing (front desk)... lots of billing confusions with no explanations, eventually explained by the manager. ARTISAN's: please see my review for them...THE BAR: freaking awesome... blueberry mojito to die for and the Maggie's Smash? I hope I got that right... their signature drink, definitely worth a go. All and all - Lake Placid is an expensive place... I thought the Lake Placid Lodge was nice, but it was probably a one and done for us, as we the other scenic aspects of the Adirondacks that are more reasonably priced. I am curious what this place would be like in the summer, during their peak season? Maybe.... TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Slightly above average for its price point

Jan 2nd, 2020

TLDR: For $600–900/night, the food, service and accommodations aren’t a good value. Food: Breakfast was meh. There is one staff member, Karen, who takes all the orders and several others who bring them to the table. She is courteous but perhaps lacking in the typical warmth one sees during the breakfast meal of a resort of this caliber. Artisans and Maggie’s Pub offer “farm to fork” fare that is seemingly defrosted. Accommodations: Bedding has been deceptively refreshed by a feather topping that provides a sinking feeling akin to your realization that you’ve overpaid for the stay. Furniture in the room is sagging in several places, with the upholstery scratchy and untouched since the late nineties. Service: Staff seems overworked. Bobby, one of the grounds staff, used his bare hands to salt the pathways, which indicated the property didn’t spring for other equipment (Home Depot sells salt spreaders). Housekeepers such as Chris and Amy used a tote bag to lug cleaning supplies. While there are supplies nearby, it seems like a heavy tote to carry. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Artisans Restaurant For Dinner - Last Time For Us Unfortunately..

Jan 1st, 2020

This restaurant has gone down hill over the last several years. We had a reservation a few days before New Years when we arrived in Lake Placid. We decided to have a drink at the bar first, where we were met by very unprofessional staff who kept their work greiveneces at the forefront of the conversation right in front of customers. One woman even said after another couple arrived to her co-worker, "Tell me where all these people are coming from because I'm done". We decided to keep an open mind and sit for dinner, which was unimpressive for the prices they charge. The server in the fine dining area was attentive and professional. We had the chicken with stuffing and Filet, which didn't wow us. It took a while to get the check but we eventually escaped. Overall it was disappointing and we will not be returning.
