0 points

Are You Ready for a Peaceful Retreat to the Whiteface Lodge Four Season Mountain Resort?

When you are in a place which seems to be America’s very own permanent Olympic Village, You’d better stay in lodges made for Olympians, which is exactly what Whiteface Lodge is. Interestingly Whiteface Lodge was made by an Olympian as well!

In the heart of the park on Lake Placid, Newyork, Whiteface Lodge is one of the grandest properties in the entire Adirondacks.

Besides, people in the know refer to this four season mountain resort as one of the best of its kind in the whole country.

It might take several weeks to fully absorb the total magnitude of the exquisite Adirondacks. With 6.1 million acres, the Adirondack Park is a unique combination of private and public lands. It has more than 2,000 miles of hiking trails, 3,000 lakes and ponds, and also 1,200 miles of rivers.

Whiteface Lodge complements this magnificent beauty of the Adirondacks. The resort boasts outstanding features such as hand-milled timber, cozy sitting rooms and handmade Adirondack furnishings.

As a matter of fact, Whiteface Lodge is the design of a former Olympic Luger, Joe Barile who created and developed the glorious establishment. While he is no longer the owner, he’s left his legacy at the lodge.

A Supreme Rustic Design

The lodge reminds the guests of the region’s 19th-century heyday. There are scenic wooden beams on the outside, and magnificent carpets in the sitting rooms. Additionally, superior cast-iron fireplaces add a classical ambiance to the rooms.

Right at the front entrance, there is a wooden walkway which evokes a wooden version of a red carpet, welcoming you to a beautiful piece of art.

As you enter the lobby, a wonderful world of wood appears before your eyes. The wooden beams holding up the wooden ceiling look like the trunks of trees. The chairs and the reception desk are wooden as well, and so is the grand staircase. The amount of wood work within the lobby is astonishingly overwhelming.
