The Whiteface Lodge
Located only blocks from the serene beauty of the famous Lake, White Face Lodge of Lake Placid epitomizes all that is Adirondack, with its enormous log cabin appeal and majestic stone fireplaces. The list of amenities the lodge provides its visitors seems endless. A few of the benefits that you would enjoy include use of the year round indoor/outdoor pool or outdoor hot tubs, an excellent fitness center, a bowling alley, a movie theater, a concierge staff, and its very own movie theater with surround sound. You can choose to dine at one of the restaurants in the nearby area, or you can enjoy exquisite menu choices from KANU, only one of the on-site dining options. Although Lake Placid is famous for twice hosting the winter Olympics and does indeed offer many activities for the winter sports enthusiast, there are many activities to be enjoyed in other seasons, including hiking, swimming, visiting galleries, and attending theater and musical events.
The lodge is situated in a wooded setting. As guests enter the resort, the vaulted ceilings above massive windows couple with the warm patina of wood and earth tones, creating an astounding mix of nature's overpowering beauty and the pleasure of ultimate comfort. Whether enjoying an ice cream in the ice cream parlor or engaging in planned activities at the water's edge, you will feel secure in the knowledge that your needs and wants are the first consideration of the staff at the lodge.
The lodge's 94 suites have been carefully designed to allow guests to bask in an Adirondacks atmosphere, with features like hand crafted furniture and slate floors. Despite the rustic ambience, great attention has been paid to enjoyment as well. For example, the bathroom floors are warm with radiant heat, and private patios and balconies all offer breathtaking views of the surrounding scenery. When guests can tear themselves from the peace of the resort, they can visit the Olympic facilities in the town, or take a short ride to White Face Mountain and enjoy a scenic gondola ride. The options are only limited by the imagination.
