The Whiteface Lodge Resort and Spa is a luxurious AAA Four Diamond resort located on the edge of the town of Lake Placid in the High Peaks region of New York State’s Adirondack Park.
The quaint little town of Lake Placid (the “Switzerland of America”) offers a wonderful collection of boutiques, restaurants and lodging. Whiteface Mountain - with the largest vertical drop east of the Rockies (3430’) - overlooks the town across Mirror Lake. Lake Placid was home to two Olympic Winter Games and offers several Olympic venues (bobsled, luge, ski jumps, ice rinks, museum, and Olympic training facilities) to visit. The surrounding area offers abundant recreational activities including mountain and trail hiking, road and mountain biking, kayaking, canoeing, boating, swimming, fishing, cross country and downhill skiing, snowshoeing, golf courses, antique shopping, and even a scenic train ride. Lake Placid also hosts the iconic Ironman competition each summer. Nearby Saranac Lake hosts it’s annual “Winter Carnival”.
The lodge evokes the region's 19th-century heyday with a traditional Adirondack style wood-beamed exterior. Much of the timber for the resort was hand-milled on-site, and accents such as handcrafted Adirondack furnishings adorn the interior spaces, creating a wonderfully authentic ambiance.
The suite features handcrafted Adirondack-style furnishings, a cast iron gas fireplace, a fully equipped kitchen with custom alder wood cabinetry and granite countertops. The suite offers a private cedar and mahogany balcony with views of the surrounding mountains. The bathroom is lined with Douglas fir beams, and features a jetted tub, double sink vanity, and radiant heated floor. The suite has its own washer and dryer, and the living room and bedroom have an LCD television. There is complimentary high speed internet connectivity and telephones throughout.

Our stay at the lodge was nothing short of magical. We went in November for Thanksgiving and my husband's birthday. It had snowed the weekend before and snowed a few more times while we were there. It was the epitome of a winter wonderland. The suite was beautiful and well appointed. The pictures don't do it justice. The living room was huge and we loved sitting by the fireplace. The bed was very comfortable and we especially loved the heated floors in the bathroom! We've been dying to stay at the Whiteface Lodge and we're so thankful to have come across Kurt's listing and are looking forward to another stay in the future. The lodge itself is so amazing, so much rustic charm everywhere you look! The restaurants were good, expected a bit more for the money but not bad at all. Resort amenities were great too, loved the free cookies and coffee offered daily, the bear dens market, the spa, movie theater etc! Be sure to take it all in. Kurt was really easy to communicate with and very helpful regarding any questions we had. Thanks for sharing your beautiful piece of heaven with us.
My husband and I just returned from a two night stay at Your Suite at Whiteface Lodge> WE LOVED IT!! We own our own business and find it difficult to get away for more than two or three nights. This rental was perfect for us. The accommodations are the best! Pure luxury and service. There is everything you could ever want at the Lodge...heated indoor-outdoor pool, three hot tubs, skating rink (right out side our door), 5 star dining and a cozy tavern...not to mention room service and a full kitchen if we wanted to cook in. The suite is complete with fireplace, leather couch and chairs, king-size (very comfy)bed, maid service and turn-down service and a full bath (with heated floor) sigh, I miss it already. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely plan to revisit as often as time will allow. Our favorite mini-vacation location!!
