Whiteface Lodge, Lake Placid, N.Y. While the Adirondacks are no stranger to hotels, few properties capture this Northeastern region’s character. Straying away from chains’ interchangeability, Whiteface Lodge, created by a former Olympian, strives for authenticity and aims to replicate the type of accommodations one would have experienced in the 19th century. This concept, then, manifests through incredible attention to detail, from hand-milled wood beams and hand-crafted furnishings to its proximity to Lake Placid’s many attractions. As a result, you’ll feel as if you’re staying in a remote mountain escape, can access modern amenities, from a movie theater to a spa, and have world-class hiking and skiing opportunities practically outside your door.
