Overview

Ample on-site activities and amenities
Some say in-season rates are high

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.
