My wife and I decided on a last-minute COVID getaway to upstate NY. Wanted to stay in Lake Placid area and wanted to have a "wilderness experience". Cabins looked cute and good reviews for the restaurant so we booked it. The cabin was very nice and cute, but they are just off the main road so not quite a true "cabin in the woods" feel. However, they did have a fire pit and fire wood, and there were beautiful trees all around. The cabin had no Air Conditioning and it was 90 degrees that day. However, they did provide two strong fans and we were able to make due. There was no hot water when we arrived, but when we went to the restaurant we alerted Andrew and he came up after dinner and reset the pilot light. Overall, it was very cute but very hot.

Our cabin was lovely and very clean. The fireplace was an added bonus. However, when we arrived there was no key for the cabin and we had to get one delivered to the restaurant on the property. Turns out that was the master key and there were no other spares. We were asked to leave the master key at the restaurant when we went out the following day while a copy was to be made of our cabin key. When we returned there was no key at all and, since we couldn't get in to our cabin, we had to kill a couple of hours while someone returned with the master key again. After we checked out I realized I had left my winter jacket in the cabin. I offered to cover all expenses and more to get the jacket returned to me. After weeks of texting back and forth with two different people, there was no jacket and no tracking number. Now 2 months later, it is lost. The last text I sent received no reply. Disappointed.

We stayed in the Hemlock cabin for one night, on an impromptu vacation down to Lake Placid to do some cross-country skiing. We love being able to cook our own meals, and when I spied this cabin on Hotels.com (which wouldn't allow me to leave a review, oddly enough), I thought it had to be too good to be true. It is exactly as shown in the photo! Both kids had fold out beds of their own (right by the fire, how cool was that?), and my husband and I had a comfy double bed. A FULL kitchen meant we cooked dinner, and had amenities to have a comfortable, fun family night of board games. The fireplace was wonderful, the cabin was quiet. and we all slept well. The owners of the facility, as well as the manager of the restaurant were prompt with communication via text, and everything was ready for us when we arrived! The cabin was clean, the bathroom was very spacious and pleasant. I absolutely loved the cozy feel. This will be our first choice to come back to when we revisit Lake Placid next winter. Thank you! It was a highlight of our stay.

Room Tip: the Hemlock looks newer than the other cabins, and is the furthest back for privacy.

We had a great stay. The cabin was extremely clean. The kitchenette is tiny, but quite workable, and since it is only 50 feet from an excellent restaurant, no problem! There is firewood available for a fire pit, and we had fun making a roaring fire.

I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a non-traditional hotel experience in the Adirondacks. The quaint chalets convey the feeling of seclusion while having all amenities and actually being quite centrally located (20 mins to Whiteface Mt peak, 30 mins to Lake Placid town, and 5 mins from a supermarket in Wilmington). Each of the chalets is a separate cabin with a nice wooden decor inside and beautiful lighting outside. There is a mini porch with seating outside, and also a firepit area where you can have a bonfire if you have a large group. If you let Robert know in advance, the keys can be left inside your chalet so there is no need for a check-in. He is also helpful and responsive by email or phone. We had the "Cedar" one-bedroom chalet, which is perfect for a party of three (a fourth could use the sofa bed). The rooms don't have air-conditioning, but a gas fired heater can be controlled via thermostat and keeps the place toasty. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was slightly small but sufficient. Though there is a popular restaurant on the premises (it opens for dinner after 5 PM), there is virtually no noise that reaches the chalets besides the sounds of nature at night. It truly feels like staying inside of the woods. There is an upright grill outside, which you can use if you fetch wood/charcoal, both of which are available at the supermarket. There is also a fireplace with instructions inside the room, though we did not have time to use it. The chalets are cleaned out once a day and towels are replaced, though soap/shampoo is not provided so it is advisable to get your own. The only one issue with the place is that while phone networks are understandably spotty, even the WiFi is extremely hard to get a connection for. So its better to download offline Google Maps for the area in advance. Overall, we paid $135 a night for a great weekend during fall (the area seems to be hitting peak reds during the second week of October), and would consider it great value for money.
