Notes from Whiteface Lodge: Evoking the Gilded Age splendor of the historic Adirondack Great Camps in its rustic timber design, Whiteface Lodge is tucked into the picturesque woodlands of the Adirondacks’ High Peaks region in Upstate New York. The village of Lake Placid, home to two Winter Olympic Games and a wealth of year-round attractions, lies within walking distance. And surrounding it all, six million spectacular mountain acres of Adirondack Park—the largest protected area in the U.S. mainland. The breathtaking variety of geography provides plenty of outdoor activities. However, on-site amenities are plentiful as well, making the lodge one of the most alluring Lake Placid resorts for all-inclusive stays.
