Older but very nice place to stay. Excellent host/owner took care of us. Going to the coffee shop in the morning & talking with other guests was enjoyable. We stayed there about five years ago by chance and decided to return since we did not require anything fancy. Have never stayed in the cabins but look cute!

We were looking for accommodation for Saturday night in Lake Placid over Labour Day weekend 2016. Knowing the destination, I suspected it would be impossible to find something not only for one night but affordable. A google search , intensive and time consuming brought me to the Schulte s Family Lodge . Not many photos but really good reviews and...

We'ver come back year after year with our family because of the hotel configuration. Lots of open space for kids to play within the sight of their oarents. The hotel is very old and tired and in need of repair. There is no guarantee of a room even though you have a reservation. Be sure to arrive early. Staff are...

OK. So the reservation system can be a little hit or miss - ie. no one answered the phone for a day when I called and you really need to check that you have the reservation now and again - it is run by the owners who have been there for 40 years I think - a family operation. However,...

NO RESERVATION FOR YOU!!! Like a bad scene out of the infamous Seinfeld Soup Nazi was my experience with the Schulte's Family Lodge. I contacted Mrs by telephone and booked 3 nights during the Lake Placid Nordic Festival. She knew it was the Nordic Festival weekend as she was the one who told me about it. My brother arrived first...

Being in Lake Placid without a reservation on a busy weekend, we found this little hotel, very well situated, that had a vacancy for 2 nights. Its location was ideal for us, close to the hiking trails and close to the center of town. It was inexpensive but clean, the walls a little thin but we always travel with ear...

We had made a last minute decision to join some friends in Lake Placid for the long weekend. We have been to Lake Placid many many times, but had never stayed here. (Usually stay at a premium hotel on Main St.) Our friends chose the Schulte's Family Lodge and we were able to get a room as a result of...

We recently traveled through Lake Placid on our way across the country. I loved the German look of the place and we decided to stay. We asked about hiking locally and the owner who checked us in gave us a great recommendation to hike Mt. JO which was a great hike. We were only going to stay in town 1...

“Rooms at a different hotel. The Marriott ended up being an excellent alternative as we were staying Sunday night, their rates drop dramatically. Averaged $159 a night, which is what the Econolodge and others were charging.”
