Balanced on the edge of village and forest, Lake Placid Lodge is a Great Camp for the new century and the only hotel located directly on the shores of Lake Placid. Its beams are hewn by hand, its rooms filled with art and antiques, with beds carved by local artisans and 50 stone fireplaces laid piece-by-piece by Adirondack masons. Lake Placid Lodge features 30 luxury accommodations, including 17 free-standing private cabins. There are two restaurants including the acclaimed Artisans Restaurant as well as Maggie’s, a casual classic, wood-paneled pub serving hearty food and creative cocktails. It is a personal retreat, as rustic and splendid as the Great Camps from the Gilded Age. Lake Placid Lodge is a proud member of Relais & Châteaux and the OPAL Collection, both exclusive arbitrators of luxury hotels and resorts.
Set among lush woods in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains, our Lake Placid lodging offers the perfect complement to the hotel’s idyllic surroundings. Private, warm and comfortable, guest rooms and cabins are tucked beneath high swaying trees, truly providing a camp of one’s own. Each space is thoughtfully-appointed with soft fabrics, polished wood, stone fireplaces with stacks of logs and a hand-built, cloud-soft bed. Guests will also enjoy majestic views of the wilderness from diamond paned windows, while relaxing by the fire. At the Lodge, all of the luxurious Lake Placid accommodations are individually designed with no two exactly alike.
There are 30 guest accommodations at Lake Placid Lodge, five in the Main Lodge, 17 cabins on the shore of the lake, six suites in the Lakeside Building, and two cottages, Pine and Birch, that overlook the lake and are just steps from the Main Lodge.
Dining at Lake Placid Lodge delights the senses with its elegant ambiance, gracious service and exceptional Farm-to-Table cuisine that celebrates the culinary culture of the Adirondacks. Start the day with the lodge’s famous Lodge Breakfast at Artisans, mingle with friends old and new in Maggie’s Pub, or indulge in an exclusive private dining experience in the famed Wine Cellar. Executive Chef Derek Leinonen’s seasonally-driven menus highlight the bounty of the Adirondacks with house-made ingredients, as well as local produce.
There are an abundance of activities to enjoy in and around Lake Placid Lodge, though it’s perfectly alright to do nothing at all. Shady forests beckon, clear streams tumble along, and pristine trails meander toward the sky. The Adirondack Park has 46 mountains over 4,000 feet high, 3,000 lakes and ponds and 30,000 miles of river and stream to explore. However, napping in the lean-to is another long-standing Adirondack tradition. Whether one prefers to curl up in front of a fireplace and take on the challenge of a handcrafted Stave puzzle or hike one of the ancient Adirondack trails, each season offers an array of options for a Lake Placid vacation.
Nestled along the idyllic shores of Lake Placid, a wedding at the Lodge is the event of a lifetime.

We must request your strict adherence to these guidelines in order to ensure a safe and comfortable environment for all guests and staff. Since you get to enjoy gourmet meals at our restaurants and the sweetest of dreams in our plush beds, we thought why can’t Fido enjoy the same?!
