Quaint, clean and well appointed! Nicely decorated for such a simple room! Everything you needed except text communication with the front desk: none of our messages could get through. Fortunately there was staff over the weekend.

(Queen Room, 2 People) Nice, clean, comfortable, and updated room if a bit small. Check-in / out was a breeze. Relaxed. Very convenient location for Lake Placid / Whiteface. Parking was limited and sometimes difficult with recent snowfall.

Great location, close to town. Cute room with plenty of space. Nice view. Only disappointments were that our key code did not work when we got there and our fireplace did not work. There was someone in the office to fix the key code, but we didn’t resolve the fireplace Issue. We are expecting a price adjustment.
