Need a break and think of heading to the Adirondacks in New York?. Friends told me that Lake Placid is a great place to do some cycling and hiking. I did some quick research and Whiteface Lodge was consistently listed as one of the top hotels in the Adirondacks. I double checked with TripAdvisor and it was listed as the #2 hotel in the Lake Placid area. So I thought I should give it a try. It’s a little bit expensive, prices usually start in the high $200s for a Junior One Bedroom Suite, up to close to $1,000 for the Grand Lodge three bedroom suite. We went mid week in May so we got a bit of a deal, we got the Deluxe One Bedroom Suite for about $300 / night.
Besides the great outdoor activities in Lake Placid, Whiteface Lodge offers some great activities of its own.
