10/10 Exceptional

Awesome stay.
I was originally nervous about the self check in process as I got the check in info 5 hours before check in time. However I enjoyed the small private nature of the place. The casual free use of the kayaks and fire pit was appealing to me. We took an evening canoe ride out into the bay. Any lower ratings are probably from people who want more of a full service resort. So set your expectations accordingly and enjoy what you get. I preferred driving down to main st vs walking as we were pretty exhausted from all the activities.

Short but sweet stay
My family of 5 stayed in the country comfort cabin for 2 nights. We enjoyed the lake access and boats available to us. Easy to get into town, great location. Staff was just a text away.

Perfectly nice property within walking distance of downtown lake Placid. The motel was on the water and had a nice pool. The reservation said that the lobby was unstaffed, but when we arrived, there was someone to check us in and answer questions. Very helpful and friendly.
