Our cozy retreat offers premium amenities and quarters for everyone staying with us at the wedding reception to enjoy. Our Resorts offer fantastic indoor and outdoor wedding venues, including winter retreats for snowy wedding celebrations. Whether you're planning an intimate elopement in the Adirondacks or a large wedding celebration with your loved ones, the Lake Placid Lodge is an idyllic setting to say "I do."
Facilities and Capacity
Lake Placid Lodge is nestled along the beautiful shores of Lake Placid, with the North Woods and Whiteface Mountain as its background. There are five indoor and outdoor venue spaces to host your wedding ceremony and reception in all seasons. The Adirondack Terrace offers picturesque views of the lake and mountains, with one rustic stone fireplace to keep guests warm.
The Adirondack Room with the Adirondack Terrace can accommodate up to 40 or a tent on the terrace for up to 75 seated guests for an elegant reception from mid-May to mid-October. The Lodge Lawn or Artisan's Runway can accommodate up to 75 seated guests for a beautiful ceremony. It features a stone fireplace, canvas-framed windows, and several heaters. Artisan's Runway is on the second floor of the lodge and offers panoramic views of the mountains and lake shores.
For spring and summer weddings, you can exchange vows right on the lakeside at the Lodge Dock if you buy out the resort for your event for a 2 or 3-night minimum stay of 30 guest rooms per night and an exclusivity fee. Any event over 40 guests requires a resort buyout. For intimate lakeside ceremonies of 2 to 6, you can privately host your celebration at the water's edge of a two-bedroom cabin or on your patio or balcony in a Lakeside Suite. Following your ceremony, you can ride in the Hacker-Craft boat for a nominal fee, enjoy a cocktail hour with up to 75 guests, or a 5-hour cocktail reception with a dinner/dance of 75 guests. The Moose Room is ideal for indoor ceremonies, perfect for an intimate Brunch, Lunch, or Dinner Wedding Reception. It features a wood-burning fireplace and intimate decors, with seating for up to 24 guests. The Map Room, Mossy Cove, or Adirondack Fire Cove are perfect for elopements. They all feature views of the lake and mountains.
Lake Placid Lodge offers wedding packages, and we will coordinate with you to prepare the space for your big day. We will be happy to provide you with a list of preferred vendors who may assist you with all your additional enhancements not included in our packages upon your request. For most couples, the resort is a wedding destination. Hosting a destination wedding will take more planning than a venue close to where you reside. Our preferred vendor list also includes Wedding/Event Planners that you may contact to navigate and coordinate all your additional vendor details for your Wedding Day (tent rentals, florists, musicians, DJs, photographers, etc).
Lake Placid Lodge's Chef curates farm-to-table meals made from scratch. We source local ingredients to suit your tastes and dietary preferences.
Lake Placid Lodge has a mix of private cabins, suites, and lodge guest rooms for the wedding party and honored guests to enjoy throughout the wedding weekend. Lodge amenities include:
- Cannondale Mountain Bikes
- Kayaking, canoeing, water paddle boards, electric boats, and a daily Hacker Craft tour of the Lake from mid-May to mid-Oct
- Cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, tobogganing, and ice skates for the Olympic ice skating rink in the winter
- Pool table, board games, books for reading, bonfires, and s'mores available all year
- Private massage sessions in-room
- Access to Whiteface Club's 18-hole championship course tennis courts

Best Hotel Ever
My only critique is with their security/privacy. When paying for a top of the line full property buyout of such a small hotel, we expected to be totally alone with our family and friends, but we ended up spending a lot of time all weekend asking non-guests to leave the property. We found them in the restaurants/bars/lobby/fire pits, wandering near rooms, pulling up to the dock, even eating from our brunch buffet and lying (to my face) about being wedding guests! This did add some unnecessary stress to the weekend as some of these crashers were very aggressive when we told them the Lodge was closed for a private event.
It seems people from the nearby whiteface club and other airbnbs think the Lodge is open to the public, even though there are signs everywhere that say “Registered Lodge guests only”! (And the registered guests rule is always, not just during private events). This is definitely not the Lodge’s fault, they can't control the public, but just be aware and maybe ask the Lodge to hire extra staff to handle security, because they know of the issue. We had to do the bouncing ourselves or make calls to the front desk to ask them to send a staff member. Normally I wouldn't be such a stickler, but like I said we paid for a full buyout, and had lots of open bars/buffets that were meant for our guests only, plus guests had their own room charge tabs open, had doors open, presents sitting out, etc.
Other than this one issue though, over the 5 days our guests stayed, everything was top notch and I would not have changed a thing. I can't wait to go back!
