Cocktails

Mar 10th, 2020

Stopped in with 4 others on a Saturday night for libations. Delightfully appointed atmosphere with an engaging ornithologist in pub who was accompanied with stunning barn owl. Bartender struggled terribly to keep up with the 10-12 people at bar and seemed confused at times with perfunctory bar skills. Ordered 2 draft beers and 3 cocktails came to $84/$95 with a tip. Might have stuck around for another one or two but wasn’t fellin the vibe. .... TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Winter Wonderland Excellent Stay

Feb 16th, 2020

After living in Georgia for 30 years ( grew up in New England) and having done mostly warm weather vacations it was time to do something different. I have enjoyed Relais & Chateau properties across the country so I checked out places that should have snow.... Bingo Lake Placid Lodge. Had well over a foot of snow on the ground and it accumulated during our stay. The scenery around the lodge can’t be put into words. It would never do it justice. Staff was incredible from housekeeping, folks who delivered wood for the fireplace to food service side of the operation. Food was good especially breakfast. We always felt pampered with our enjoyment in mind. During the stay it was -20 degrees below zero and they kept roads and paths well salted. I hope to return as soon as I can. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Best Holiday Ever

Feb 6th, 2020

My husband and I have been staying at the Lake Placid Lodge somewhat regularly since our honeymoon there in 1999. We've witnessed the renovation and change in ownership, as well as the more recent welcome to families with older children. Since our honeymoon, we've been fortunate to come here for many wonderful, romantic respites, and once for a delightful girls-only weekend with my sister, staying in both the gorgeous lodge rooms & lakeside cabins. As the Thanksgiving season coincided with our 20th Anniversary, we hesitantly decided to "take the plunge" and bring the kids for the holiday, and introduce them to a treasured part of our history. What a great choice. The staff was just as professional and personable and accommodating as ever, providing lovely, low-key activities for the kids (the gingerbread house making, cookie decorating, scavenger hunts around the property, ping-pong and more...), in addition to their usual activities (bikes, snow shoes, X-country skis, sleds, although there wasn't quite enough snow this year). The indoor event room was set up in a way that folks of all ages could feel comfortable and find their own pleasure (and a great selection of classic holiday movies and board games), with terrific staff attention to every need. And the food is better than ever - which is saying something, as we've enjoyed many elegant Artisan's dinners (and those famous breakfasts!!). Although we chose Maggie's Pub for Thanksgiving day (as we knew our sons wouldn't appreciate the multi-course Artisan's menu), we were still able to have a full, and 5-star, Thanksgiving meal. I'm still dreaming about that perfectly-seasoned stuffing! All that said, what really amazed us is how the Lodge has managed to maintain that unique sense of luxury and peacefulness/R&R even while accommodating families. My husband and I have grown to have rather high expectations for the Lodge, particularly as it maintains it's Relais & Chateaux rating (which the prices naturally reflect), and it's our go-to "special treat". The expectations were raised even higher, with the thought of trying a new Thanksgiving tradition AND bringing the kids - the Lodge exceeded all our expectations! Thank you to everyone who made this happen - the very personable General Manager, Kevin, is clearly running a tight ship. We'll definitely be back for another holiday celebration with the boys - and for more romantic weekends, of course! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Loved it so much, we booked again for June!

Jan 26th, 2020

Let me start off by saying that this place is not a bargain spot - it is very expensive, but it is well worth the money due to the care, the attention to detail, the service, and the lodge itself. My boyfriend turned 25 last week and every year I take him on a ski trip. Last year we went to Lake George, skied West Mountain, and stayed at the Sagamore (another Opal Property). We fell in love with that place, and went again in September. The plan was to go there for our ski trip again, but after our September trip I knew I wanted to do something different - and going to Lake Placid to ski Whiteface was a must. For the final two days (post skiing, for relaxation) of our 5 day trip, we stayed at Lake Placid Lodge, and from the moment we walked through the doors and were greeted by Gail, I knew that it was all worth it. Gail was so warm and welcoming, offering us champagne and gave us a tour of the lodge with some history. The hand-crafted details are noticeable from everywhere you turn. Did you know they have the largest collection of Adirondack Art? I know that now because Gail told us! When we inquired about a cart for all our bags, we were informed that they did not have one, but rather they had baggage assistance. That is where Dale came in. He was so kind and unloaded our car with us, and helped us get settled into our room. The fireplace was all set and ready for us, and Dale gave us a little tutorial on how to get it going. Pine was absolutely stunning - much larger than the pictures show, and so beautiful, with large windows facing the lake, and its own porch with a swing. Since I had informed the reservation team that it was a birthday, they had gifted us with a bottle of Champagne in addition to the half bottle of red wine they give daily. There were also artisanal hand-made snacks, and a mini fridge with complimentary beverages and 4 bottles of Fiji water. The room was spotless - I don't think I have seen a cleaner room in my life. It came stocked with books, and a multi-game board with Backgammon, checkers, chess, dominoes, and more. The deep soak bath for two was incredible after a day of skiing. We ate at the lodge both nights - Saturday we had reservations at Artisans, then we had breakfast at Artisans, and then dinner at Maggies Pub. The food was phenomenal - but the stick out menu item for us was their Steak Sliders - delicious! The meals were pricy, but we were on vacation! The staff was also super quick and reliable with service. When we called asking for more wood (which we did twice) they came right away, and helped us set up a fire. When we went for dinner Sunday night at Maggie's, I called and let them know of a timeframe for turndown, and when we returned, they had a fire going for us! The resort gives such a personal touch, and has such a quiet atmosphere. They really make it known that their number one priority is the happiness and the experience of their in-house guests. The text messages were also a great personal touch as well. Highlight - Mark, who comes with the birds weekly, was incredible! We were saddened to hear that he was unable to make it the Saturday we were there due to the snowstorm we were getting, BUT we were delighted to learn the next day that he was going to be coming Sunday instead. My boyfriend and I both got to hold the Barn Owl, and we learned so much about all the different birds he brought in. Since coming home, I have been riding the high of this incredible experience, and knew that I could not let it slip through my fingers. We are now returning for our 4th Anniversary, and will be staying for 3 nights in June before driving down and staying for 4 nights at the Sagamore. Looking forward to an entire week of pure relaxation. We will definitely be golfing, biking, playing tennis, and taking advantage of all the perks the resort has to offer! This time we have booked to stay in one of the Lodge King rooms (Tamarac, St. Regis, or Hearthside). I am unsure now which room I will be in, as that is apparently randomized, but they all have private balconies with lake views, so I am excited! Thank you, Lake Placid Lodge! I truly cannot wait to come back in June! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

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
