My husband & I just spent a week here & couldn't have been happier. We stayed in a regular room that was decorated to appear like a log cabin. It was budget friendly & located about 10 miles outside the hustle & bustle of Lake Placid & just down the road from Whiteface Mtn. Close enough to run into Lake Placid to get something to eat in the evening, but there were a few very good restaurants close by also, without having to drive more than a couple miles. This place was immaculate & you can tell the owners take great pride in their establishment by the top-notch condition everything was in. We were there mainly for hiking and enjoyed returning each afternoon to talk on the porch with Bill about our day & giving some attention to their pet dog, Lucy. There is a small, continental breakfast available & a country store with anything you would need across the road, along with a liquor store. The rooms have a microwave & refrigerator that makes it very easy to prepare something light in your room if desired. There is a pool, playground, shuffleboard & plenty of seating outside to enjoy yourselves. We cannot express enough at how happy we were with our stay here. We are looking forward to seeing Judy, Bill & Lucy again!! Thanks again for everything!
We just got home from a lovely stay at Alpine County Inn and Suites. The price was very reasonable and we were happy with how clean the rooms were and how nice the Owners are! The room even smelled good! :) the pool and picnic area were well managed and the location was perfect. Across the street is an icecream stand that serves food and yummy ice cream and there is a north pole store (convenient store which is part of a camping resort) right across the street. There is a lake beach area within waking distance too. Less than two miles away is Santa's workshop which is an old fashion North Pole theme park. lake placid is a 10 minute drive down a scenic road. The views are breath taking. Especially Whiteface Ski Mountain, home of the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympics.
First time skiing at Whiteface and Judy and Bill were the perfect hosts, so friendly and informative before and during our visit. The Olympic Suite was a perfect size, my teenage son loving his own space in the living area with the pullout. So clean and nicely decorated and close to the mountain. Thinking about coming back in the summer!
We had a great experience staying at Alpine Country Inn and Suites. Bill and Judy are totally invested in making their place like home away from home. The rooms are clean and neat, the shower was hot, the TV worked great and their inn is easy to get to. We enjoyed hot coffee and pastries each morning and had several enjoyable conversations with the owners. Bill jumped my truck for me one morning when it failed to start. All of that plus Alpine Country Inn is only 3 miles from Whiteface Mountain, our skiing destination. I would definitely plan to stay there again.
My husband researched this hotel and booked it. I didn't know what to expect. I was delighted and surprised! This place is pristine and so comfortable. The room isn't huge but it has all the comforts you need. The owners, Bill and Judy couldn't be nicer. If you have any questions they are the ones to ask about Wilmington. They know what you need to know about Whiteface Mountain. I would definitely return during summer.
We wanted to go do some skiing at Whiteface Mountain. We spent 2 nights. This is a strong alternative to going into Lake Placid. (A) Its WAY closer to the hill (B) This is such a wonderful hidden jewel of a hotel. We are a family of 4 ( 2 teenage sons) so space is always in need. Even before we got there we were given all sorts fo information while booking that made getting there easy. Once there the hotel is in such beautiful condition I was stunned. I do lots of carpentry so appreciated the effort and work in keeping it in nice shape. Once there the owners are very inviting and helpful. They offered us ideas and recommendations for all of our questions. The next time i am in those parts (without snow) I know where to call my home away from home. It is no wonder why it scores so high in customer satisfaction.
We stayed here while we were skiing at nearby Whiteface Mountain. I had read the reviews before I booked and I can only say I agree with everything people have said. The owners are very friendly and willing to share their knowledge of the area over breakfast. The room we had was nicely furnished and very clean. When we were there the temperatures dipped to -26 degrees Celsius but the room was always warm. It was especially nice to return to a warm room after a days skiing. As we were out skiing most of the day we were mainly looking for somewhere to sleep. I don't think we could have made a better choice, I would certainly return if I was in the area again.
