"Our group of 7 couples go away this weekend every year. This was our 24th annual weekend and our third time staying at Pharaoh View Lodge. It's the perfect size with plenty of places to divide up if the group has different interests. This was important as the Saturday of our stay was pouring and we couldn't be outside. There is lots of space, corners and nooks and crannies to play games, have quiet conversation, nap, etc.
The Great Room furniture is comfy. We had a fire roaring in the fireplace. Because we cook our own meals, we were happy to have the extra stove and refrigerator on the porch. The kitchen is well equipped and our group rarely finds a table we can all eat at, but there's a perfect one here looking out over the lake.
There's a washer/dryer although for two nights, we didn't use.
Due to the weather, we did not take out any of the boats on the shoreline...canoe, rowboat, pedal boat, etc. but we did find a sunny couple hours to play volleyball at the court near the lake. It's a very peaceful area. There is a market and Stewart's shop within a few miles.
Our dealings with the owner have always been pleasant."

"This is a warm, friendly house with a great open floor plan. The upstairs bedroom has awesome bunk beds for the kids and the downstairs bed rooms are clean and comfortable. A highlight is the large central fireplace that we used every night. The house is removed from the main road (route 9) by a long, narrow driveway, giving it a real secluded feel. A small grassy backyard leads to the beach which has nice, deep sand, great for kids (and adults). Lots of beach/water toys, all the buckets, shovels, and assorted sand gear. The water is clear and shallow, mostly sandy/muddy and good for swimming. Other than getting a bit shallow it's a great spot to pull up boats and park at the dock or on the beach. Huge screened in porch and the outdoor shower is awesome. I took most of my showers out there. The kitchen is mostly new and decently appointed, though there is very little in the way of glassware (only 2 actual glasses in whole house - the rest is various kinds of plastic), but everything you need for general family food and drink. The owners are cool people, accessible and responsive, and overall I would highly recommend this place. We would like to come back again."

"My family stayed at Solitude Lodge over President's Weekend 2015 and we had a wonderful time. The house is exquisite. The fireplace was well stocked and was the centerpiece of our apres ski fun. We played lots of darts, fusbal and chess. The property is pretty big so I took a short hike behind the house one of the days. The house is also conveniently located close to Whiteface as well as hiking / cross country ski trails. The kitchen is well supplied so we cooked every night. I would definitely stay here again in the future."

"What a great house. We have rented in lake placid several times and this was by far our favorite home. It had everything we need to make it feel like home. The kids had plenty of space to hangout without disturbing each other. It is clean, comfortable and close to town and whiteface. We couldn't make the fireplace work but other than that everything was perfect for our weekend."
