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 more expensive than a typical hotel room, but the rooms are more like suites. Prices usually start in the high $200s for a Junior One Bedroom Suite, up go up to close to $900 for the Grand Lodge three bedroom suite. We went mid week in May, so we got a bit of a deal, we reserved a Deluxe One Bedroom Suite for about $300 / night.
We loved our stay at the Lodge. The hotel is extremely well run and has all the amenities needed for a great couples weekend, or family vacation.
