Whiteface Lodge

Whiteface Lodge is a luxurious all-suite resort located in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains in Lake Placid, New York. The resort is situated on over 700 acres of land and offers stunning views of Whiteface Mountain and Lake Placid. The lodge is a popular destination for families, couples, and groups alike, offering a variety of activities and amenities to suit all interests.

Our family spent three relaxing days at the resort and were truly pleased with what amenities Whiteface had to offer including a movie theater, bowling alley and even a dedicated area for me to sneak off to and enjoy a cigar. The resort received a verified luxury designation from Forbes as the service and suite were second to none.  It definitely gave off Yellowstone vibes which happens to be my wife’s favorite show.

Whiteface Lodge Accommodations

Whiteface Lodge offers a variety of lodging accommodations, ranging from one-bedroom suites to four-bedroom suites. All rooming options are beautifully sequined with rustic décor and feature amenities such as full kitchens, fireplaces, and private balconies. Some suites also offer stunning views of Whiteface Mountain or Lake Placid.  Our suite had two levels, a deck and so many bathrooms that I lost count (maybe 3 or 4)! Candidly, it’s the biggest room we’ve ever stayed in. The well-stocked kitchenette made cooking an option in addition to the incredible room service.

Activities and Amenities

Whiteface Lodge offers a diverse range of activities and amenities designed to cater to every guest’s desires. This includes a cutting-edge fitness center, both indoor and outdoor heated pools, a bowling alley, a fully equipped movie theater, and a delightful game room. The resort also boasts a luxurious spa for those seeking relaxation.. Nature enthusiasts can revel in the numerous outdoor activities available, such as hiking, biking, fishing, and skiing.

Dining in Lake Placid

Whiteface Lodge caters to a diverse range of dining preferences with its carefully curated options. At the forefront is Kanu, the resort’s fine dining restaurant, where patrons can savor a menu filled with modern American cuisine crafted from the freshest local ingredients. For a more laid-back experience,Peak 47, the resort’s casual bistro, offers a delectable selection of classic American dishes, including burgers, sandwiches, and refreshing salads. Additionally, the Canoe Club Gril, available exclusively when Canoe Club operates (from Memorial Day through Labor Day), promises a culinary treat.

These restaurants are not only family-friendly, but also provide an ideal setting for a memorable date night, should you secure a babysitter. Lastly, don’t miss the opportunity to indulge in the exquisite breakfast buffet, a delightful culinary experience that I cannot recommend enough.
