The Whiteface Lodge Resort & Spa, Lake Placid, New York introduced an innovative new summer program aimed to help families and groups of friends share vacation expenses. Based on the concept of a “summer share” where individuals pool their money to rent a summer vacation house, The Resort’s “Share-cation” program offers a seven-night weekly rate for its three- and four-bedroom suites, spacious and plush single and two-story guest suites that comfortably accommodate groups from eight to ten.
Guests who book this smart, savvy weekly rental program also receive additional value-added gratis activities, services and amenities, such as daily breakfast buffet in the Resort’s signature restaurant, Kanu; access to the Resort’s private lakefront beach area, the Canoe Club with complimentary use of canoes, kayaks and paddleboats; all resort activities including onsite heated indoor/outdoor pools, basketball, paddle and tennis courts, and a fully-equipped game room with a two-lane bowling alley; an onsite 56-seat movie theater, in addition to the Resort’s complimentary and expanded children’s program, “Kamp Kanu.” The new “Share-cation” program also includes nightly turndown service, twice-daily housekeeping service and complimentary shuttle service to the town of Lake Placid.
“We understand that this summer in particular, travelers are seeking smart strategies to enjoy a memorable, fun-filled vacation without compromising their budgets,” said Phil Anderson, General Manager, The Whiteface Lodge Resort & Spa. “Our continuous monitoring of the economic market inspired us to create a weekly rental program that will motivate families and groups of friends to share costs and enjoy a vacation that is price-friendly and provides a value-added experience through the Resort’s wide selection of complimentary activities and services.”
The Resort’s artfully appointed three- and four-bedroom suites feature handcrafted Adirondack-style furnishings; a fully equipped kitchen with granite countertops; a separate dining area; cast iron gas fireplaces; a private balcony with majestic views of the surrounding mountains; spacious bathrooms with jetted tub (master bedroom), individual showers, double sink vanities and radiant heated floors; custom pillow-topped king- and queen-sized beds with a selection of pillow types and fine quality bed linens; LCD, high definition televisions in the living room and each bedroom; and complimentary high-speed Internet connectivity, as well as telephones in the living rooms and individual bedrooms.
