Why Stay At Whiteface Lodge
This elegant, woodland 94-suite lodge, about five hours north of New York City, offers a rustic but deluxe resort experience in Lake Placid, abutting the six-million-acre Adirondack Park.
Nestled among the high peaks of famous Adirondacks Winter Olympics village in Lake Placid, this rustic 94-suite mountain resort doesn't skimp on luxury or services. Styled after an Adirondack Great Camp, the lofty three-story, wood-beamed lobby exudes elite huntsman charm with antler chandeliers and birch-bark furniture. Skiing, fly fishing, ice skating, and canoeing are close at hand, or you can relax in a heated indoor/outdoor pool and the 5,800-square-foot spa with a long menu of treatments like the apple cider body masque or four-handed massage. Romantic stone fireplaces warm diners in the market-driven Kanu restaurant, while kids enjoy activities in Kamp Kanu by day and the Sunset Club at night—including evening s'mores. Wood-paneled suites have handmade Adirondack-style furniture, with cast-iron fireplaces, slate floors, and a private cedar-mahogany balcony; bathrooms come equipped with jetted-tubs and radiant-heat floors.
In summer, be sure to check out the Canoe Club, the Lodge's private beach area on Lake Placid for boating, tubing, and other aquatic fun.
Two fully furnished cigar & cognac lean-tos—normally more like shacks—with stunning views are luxuriously updated with a fire pit, electricity, and phone service so guests can request delivery of 25 single-malt scotches and a high-end, imported cigar menu.
Arrive at Burlington International Airport (BTV) which is approximately 65 miles from the lodge. Anticipate about 2.5 hours of travel time. You may also opt to arrive at Adirondack Regional Airport (SLK) which is approximately 16 miles (25 minutes) away from the lodge.7 Whiteface Inn Rd, Lake Placid, New York, United States
