When booking a place to stay on vacation, the available amenities can make or break your decision to stay there. After all, getaways are meant to be full of fun! While many hotels have just a pool to brag about, Whiteface Lodge has dozens of other luxuries for guests to enjoy. Our spa, complete with facials, massages, body enhancements, and more, even has a salon. Our fitness center has a schedule of classes to get your heart pumping while on vacation, and our restaurants are sure to tickle your palate during your time in Lake Placid. Beyond these, we still have countless things to do in a hotel—so keep reading, and you’re sure to find something that gets you excited for your getaway to Whiteface Lodge.
On-Site Outdoor Activities
Summer lovers can find a plethora of things to do with us, especially when visiting our Lakefront Beach Canoe Club, just a free shuttle ride from the Lodge. Here, guests can swim, play volleyball and life-sized Jenga, and rent canoes, kayaks, paddleboards, and more. Plus, groups can rent our deluxe pontoon boat for a relaxing afternoon on the water, or take out the ski nautique, which enables you to do some water skiing, wakeboarding, and tubing. After an afternoon of fun in the sun, stop by the Ice Cream Parlor for a sweet and refreshing treat.
Other Lake Placid summer activities at Whiteface Lodge include swimming in our pools or soaking in the hot tubs. Catch and release rainbow trout in the pond with the fishing rods, bait, and tackle we provide. Before dark, unwind from the day with a game of HORSE at the basketball court, or have a few volleys back and forth on the tennis court with a friend. Then, cap your night with a hot s’more at our campfire, rain or shine, for an idyllic summer night in upstate NY. How often do you find toasting marshmallows over the fire as an option for things to do in a hotel?
While summer might yield the most on-site activities at Whiteface Lodge, we also have an outdoor ice skating rink in the winter. Grab a pair of free rental ice skates, and you’re ready to skate away! Consider playing broomball or hockey, or sign up for skating lessons if you need a little help. Have peace of mind when enjoying our on-site Lake Placid winter activities, because the rink doesn’t freeze from a pond or lake.
Indoor Things to Do at a Hotel
If the weather is too hot, too cold, or not just right, there are plenty of things to do in a hotel with us, depending on your interests. Engage in some friendly competition by visiting our game room, where you can play air hockey, pool, foosball, and more. Or, reserve a lane in our traditional bowling alley, and see if you out-strike them all. After you’ve settled who’s number one, catch a movie in our 56-seat, surround-sound theater at one of our three showings a day. Grab a bag of free popcorn, and you’ll be set to go!

If you’re a parent, don’t forget about Kamp Kanu and the Sunset Club. By dropping your children off with us, they’ll be able to participate in science experiments, scavenger hunts, obstacle courses, hiking, and more, while you and your spouse enjoy some alone time. This way, you won’t feel guilty that you left your children behind to be bored during date night.
