The lodging at Lake Placid Lodge complements its woodland and mountain surroundings. The guest rooms and cabins are tucked between tall trees, and inside you will find soft fabrics, cosy fireplaces, polished wood materials, and cloud-soft beds. Guests have the freedom to decide whether they want to bask in the immense comfort each room has to offer, or to go out and be surrounded by the amazing views just outside their doors. And because each cabin and guest room is constructed by hand using natural wood materials, no two accommodations are exactly alike.
There are a total of 30 accommodations: 5 in the Main Lodge; 17 cabins; 6 suites in the Lakeside Building; and 2 cottages.

All these accommodations overlook the lake and the others are just close to the Main Lodge. Pets are very much welcome so long as they are put under the hotel’s guidelines.
The Main Lodge includes three Lodge King Rooms as well as the Treetop and Whiteface Suites.
Lodge King Rooms are individually named Hearthside, St. Regis, and Tamarac. These quiet rooms are designed for comfort with king-sized featherbeds, cosy stone fireplaces, soaking tubs, rainfall showers, and private balconies overlooking the mountains.
The Treetop Suite is found on the Main Lodge’s top floor, where guests can stay at a place that’s as high as the trees. The rooms are surrounded by windows, giving a panoramic view of the outside. French doors leading to a balcony offer an even closer look of the view. Inside, the cathedral ceiling gives so much space while the king-sized bed is made of rugged wood that appears to just have grown from the floor.
Also atop the Main Lodge is the Whiteface Suite featuring tall windows and a private balcony overlooking the woods. Inside are hand-carved king sized beds, a comfortable sitting area, and stone fireplaces.
Just a short walk from the Main Lodge is the Lakeside Building, where there are six individually designed suites. Romantic and lavish, each of these suites has a beautiful living room, a king bedroom, and a double-sided fireplace. The bathrooms have deep soaking tubs, double bathroom sinks, and separate showers. They also have covered balconies with great views of the lake. They’re also pretty close to the lake and where the nightly campfire is. Because they are separate from the main lodge, the suites can also be reserved exclusively for large groups such in the case of family reunions and corporate retreats. This includes the entire building and all six suites.
Nestled down by the lake are five different types of Private Cabins where guests looking for more of both privacy and exposure to the outdoors can go to. Because of their location, they’re perfect for romantic or private getaways for couples and families.
Those who want to be closer to the lake can go for the Lakeview and Lakefront Cabins. The individually decorated Lakeview Cabins are just a few steps from the water, while the thick-walled Lakefront Cabins offer a bit more privacy while still being close to the lake.
The Two Bedroom Cabins offer comfortable and private stay for up to four guests. Each room has a king or two twin beds and its own bathroom with a separate tub and shower. Meanwhile, there’s ample living space between the rooms as well as a wood burning fireplace.
The uniquely designed Owl’s Head Cabin and Buck Two Bedroom are perfect for a romantic escape. The Owl’s Head Cabin is the most romantic setup among them, being secluded at the very edge of the lake. It is matched only by the grandness of the Buck Two Bedroom, also at the edge of the lake, which is the most sought after cabin among the rest.
Finally, the Pine and Birch Overlook Rooms offer majestic views to those who stay there. The rooms are spacious and feature a comfortable sitting area, and have a private location.
