Whiteface Lodge

    Adirondack Great Camps defined rustic opulence in the early 20th century, a role the Whiteface Lodge in Lake Placid, New York, could rightfully assume for the 21st. The authentically grand atmosphere owes partly to a use of local resources: Logs harvested from the property and from the owner’s nearby ranch were milled on site, and blacksmiths from the region forged the light fixtures and hardware. The lodge’s rough-limbed furnishings and bark-covered trims are woodsy works of art. Accommodations Each of the 84 suites has Adirondack hardwood furnishings, cast-iron gas fireplaces, and an LCD television. Recreation An outdoor ice-skating rink opeRates year-round. Dining The Steak and Stinger Restaurant serves American cuisine under a 28-foot ceiling. Worthy Diversion Ice fishing, bobsledding, and cross-country skiing are popular winter pastimes. Rates $315 for the junior one-bedroom suite; $5,000 for the 2,997-square-foot, four-bedroom Presidential Suite.
