  • Christmas at The Whiteface Lodge

    "This year our family had the distinct pleasure of spending Christmas at the Whiteface Lodge in Lake Placid, NY. We stayed in a 3 bedroom unit with our parents, children, and our sisters. The Suite was beautiful, complete with a Christmas tree, and spotlessly clean. We were concerned with having enough for everyone to do, but to our surprise we were all kept happily busy ice skating, snow shoeing, swimming or hot tubbing OUTSIDE in the snow (incredible!), going to Kamp Kanu, enjoying the spa, and a variety of Christmas activities. Our first night, we were serenaded in the Kanu dining room by a choir of very talented Carolers! What a nice touch, really got us in the holiday spirit. For Christmas dinner we had reservations downtown and decided to use one of the hotel's babysitting referrals to watch our 1 year old while we went out to eat. Katrina arrived on time and was absolutely wonderful with our active baby girl! The Lodge was so wonderful that our family barely felt like leaving the hotel grounds! The staff is incredibly attentive, and the holiday vibe is unmatched anywhere. It felt as if our Christmas lasted all week, and we unanimously agree it was the best Christmas we've had in years!"
