The Adirondak Loj, was built in 1927, and has space for 38 guests in a combination of private rooms, family bunk rooms, and a co-ed loft. Delicious home-cooked meals, with homemade breads and soups, are served in our rustic dining room. The comfortable living room with its stone fireplace is perfect for recounting the day’s adventures or just relaxing with a book from our Adirondack library.
The High Peaks Cyclery has two houses for rent in the village of Lake Placid. They are both a perfect place for individuals or groups to get ready, and relax after a great day at Winterfest. There are great views of the High Peaks mountains out the front window of the High Peaks House and the huge shared deck of both houses.
Classic Nordic ski lodge with 6 private bunkrooms on 25k of groomed trails. Connected to the Olympic Trail system and Jackrabbit Trail, the bunkhouse is 1 mile from Adirondack Loj Road making it a “hub” for outdoor enthusiasts. Hearty breakfast, common room, shared bathrooms.
