“"Avoid the crowds and prices of Lake Placid"”
Reviewed 19 January 2012

My family of 4 booked two rooms over a three day January weekend for a ski / snow show holiday. We had wonderful views of Whiteface Mt - and the hotel is only 5 minutes to the base lodge. There are many nearby hiking trails - we went on a great 4 mile snow shoeing trek to Copperas and Owen Ponds - trailblazing in 6 inches of snow. Touristy Lake Placid is still close enough for the occasional dinner out but we found the restaurant associated with the Hungry Trout to be excellent - offering a variety choices from Pub burgers to steaks. Very good service at the pub.

Room has very warm and quiet with a king size bed.

Only concern - the linen could have been cleaner - we found crumbs and hair throughout the sheets in both of the rooms we had.

Room Tip: Avoid room # 1 (too close to the maid's storage closet).

Great service and friendly staff. The location is terrific, especially if you are skiing Whiteface, and you can't beat the price. The restaurant is a must-try, the fresh fish is amazing.

We had stayed here four years ago and were thrilled with the location. When we booked again this year, we were intrigued by the "remodeled rooms". Over the phone, Jerry told us that they were "nice". That's a bit of an understatement! Our King room was gorgeous, with postcard views of Whiteface right outside our window! We could watch the snow makers at night, in anticipation of the next day's fun. Very comfortable bed, super fast wifi, beautiful spa-style bathroom with rainfall shower, cathedral ceiling, immaculate room, friendly owner, and the ease of being the first on the mountain will have us back again and again. P.S. Make sure to try the burgers at the resort's MacDougall's pub - delish! Also, we thoroughly enjoyed the just-opened T&T Coffee Shop next to the Wilmington Post Office.

Jerry was SO accommodating! Our family of five arrived into LaGuardia at 8pm Christmas night and still had a 5+ hour drive ahead of us into Wilmington so that we could be ready for skiing at Whiteface mountain the next day. The owners gave us a call Christmas day to confirm our plans and we explained that we wouldn't be able to check in until very late (most likely around 1am). They assured us that would be fine, gave us our room assignment and told us the room would be ready and open, to just walk in when we got there (regardless of the hour). A small but quaint room awaited us with two Queen sized beds. Our rooms were made up the three nights we were there and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend this place if your plans take you to the area for skiing or sight seeing in the Lake Placid area (Just a short 9mile drive). "Up a Creek" restaurant is just down the road for FANTASTIC homestyle breakfast & great start to your day. The Hungry Trout also has an onsite restaurant which we didn't get a chance to try, but gets great reviews!

My wife and I stayed at the hungry Trout during labor day weekend 2011 (just after Tropical Storm Irene pushed through). even though there were many roads and bridges out the resort was open, clean and undamaged. Jerry was very helpful with driving directions so we could avoid closed roads and bridges. The room was very clean, smelled nice and the bed was amazing. The pub has amazing drinks and the Hungry Trout restaurant served the best Trout I've ever had. When we come back to the Lake Placid region we will stay here again without question.
