With its classic Adirondack architecture — sloped roofs, native stonework and peeled logs throughout — Whiteface Lodge Resort & Spa has the appearance of a Gilded Age Great Camp. The resort is styled in that refined rustic tradition: tasteful taxidermy, rich textures and fabrics, wood sculptures, artwork featuring woods and wildlife, elegant antler chandeliers and forged sconces, mounted antique skis and snowshoes, handsome leather chairs and sofas as well as handcrafted furniture with elaborate twig work and birch-bark accents (even the faintest scent of balsam in hallways). Still, all amenities are modern, from the stainless appliances and granite counters in each suite’s kitchen to the flat-screen televisions, gas fireplaces and roomy jetted tubs. Large windows in suites and the Lake Placid hotel’s common areas exhibit the surrounding forest and peaks in the distance, with Whiteface Mountain hanging in the sky.
