Not a Resort! The man who greeted us had no personality-pointed to a check in screen to advise of us of our room number as if we should have known to look there. The room is very small, dated and dark- forced us to sit outside-which is a good thing. (pretty much all patrons were) The pool appeared pristine, the River trails were lovely, the linens in the room were clean and the bed comfortable. The adjacent restaurant was closed but looked like a fun spot! Lake Placid restaurants are close by. A bit pricey for what got but A little interior facelift would make this a very special place.

Hungry Trout Lodge has ALL of the amenities of a 5star Hotel> The swimming pool is wonderful, the scenery surrounding the lodge is beautiful. The Lodge is very neat, clean, organized and professional. I woke up Saturday am, opened my door and slept another three hours with the door open to enjoy the mountain air!!! My Son and I plan to come again and go trout fishing, the west branch of the river to fish is less than 50 yards away!! I practiced Yoga every am !! Peaceful, quiet and serene place..... Great place to get away from everything and everyone!!!

This property was advertised as a quiet place to stay next to Whiteface Mtn., to go fishing etc. My husband and I spent one night there and the room and bed were very comfortable. However, we went to lay out in the sun and enjoy the pool Sat afternoon and were the only one’s there - for five mom’s until an entire group of “parents” and toddlers took over. Two people had their 3 & 4 yr old girls completely naked in the pool and running around. Fine, do that in your own back yard. Totally inappropriate and uncomfortable. I got splashed from the 1 child (which was not a big deal at all, it was hot and I would’ve liked to be in the water), so I sighed and wiped the splash off my legs, and the “mother” sitting in front of me, (while not looking at me) says “if you don’t want don’t want to get splashed then move farther away”. This experience was disgusting as we could not even relax near the pool and it was taken over by a group of ignorant people. We wanted to stay one day/night and relax, but couldn’t even do that.

Misleading with advertising. Shows 2 restaurants and a bar. However, it does not state that they are closed Mondays and Tuesdays. Staff member does not know the area and didn’t know of any local restaurants. We had to drive into Lake placid for restaurants.
