The Whiteface Region of the Adirondacks is located in the famous, awe-inspiring High Peaks, which is why the hiking, skiing, ice climbing, and other activities here are so exceptional.
Lodging is also special, with a range of options that might surprise you. Use this handy guide to pick the room that's best for you, and start planning your mountain getaway today. See you this winter!
On a budget
Check our many motels for a great deal. Our Adirondack motels are small and family run, and they are clean and comfortable so there are no sacrifices to be made.
One fine example is Ledge Rock at Whiteface, directly across the road from Whiteface Mountain. Choose a one- or two-bedroom suite — they all have refrigerators and microwaves, so it's easy to stretch the food budget.
In the center of Wilmington is Mountain Brook Lodge, which offers discounts to veterans, firefighters, law enforcement, and EMS personnel. They have rooms decorated with an Adirondack theme and a charming gift shop, while dining and Adirondack Chocolates are within walking distance.
The more the merrier
Taking a group trip lets everyone get more for less. The Whiteface Region has many places to gather at a low per-person cost, from resorts to rentals.
A popular choice is the Wilderness Inn II. Their grounds have cottages with one, two, or three bedrooms, all with fireplaces and kitchens. There's an onsite restaurant with a full range of dining, from shared appetizers to steak and seafood entrees and a full salad bar. This is all in a serene wooded setting, only minutes from the ski slopes.
Stretch out at the Owaissa Club Townhomes. Get more bedrooms and bathrooms, a full kitchen, and luxurious Adirondack decor from a local artisan shop.
A family ski trip can be more relaxing if the space is chosen with mindfulness about unique needs. Whether it's accommodating toddlers or teenagers, there's local lodging to fit.
The Hungry Trout Resort makes it easy. Cut down on travel time with the skiing just a short distance away, and skip herding everyone into the car with their two on-site restaurants. The spacious rooms are lined along the banks of the Ausable River, with the Flume Trails nearby, an easy trek for exploring on cross-country skis or snowshoes.
Need more room? We have a whole range of cabins and cottages.
No need to leave the dog at home. Take them snowshoeing or cross-country skiing and choose from different kinds of pet-friendly lodging.
Cadence Lodge at Whiteface has a pet-friendly policy with a low fee that allows up to two dogs. They also provide biscuits, dog towels for slushy feet, and pick up bags. They will even summon their recommended pet sitter.
Sometimes it's a single getaway. Whether it's the special quiet of a snowy forest to finish that novel or the freedom of setting an active schedule at a personal speed, the Whiteface Region has options.
The North Pole Inn has cozy little cottages with a kitchenette in their Hundred Acre Wood, with a choice of trails for a snowshoe trek. Their on-site Camp Store is the craft beer headquarters for the area, or you can walk to Pourman's Tap House for pub food and draft selections.
It is just the right balance of solitude and social options.
Go for the romance with a wide choice of inns and bed and breakfast lodging.
A choice with plenty of old world charm is the welcoming Willkommen Hof Bed & Breakfast, a European-style guest house. It is nestled in a forest with sweet touches like a piano for playing, sauna and outdoor hot tub, and rooms with a choice of fireplace or whirlpool bath.
The breakfast is exceptional, including their famous apple pancakes, with a selection of wine and beer available on site for an evening by the fire.
As you leave the ski slopes, turn left for lodging and stay close to Whiteface.
