I am from New York City and I was looking for a spur of the moment getaway for the Easter weekend. I wanted to bring my bulldog with me. I came across Cadence Lodge on the Internet and called Shelley to reserve a room and confirm that I would be able to bring my dog. She sounded very friendly and welcoming and I booked the room for me and my dog.
Upon arrival, we were greeted by Don who checked us in. He gave us a quick summary of things I can do with my dog over the weekend and he was also very friendly. Our room was clean and very comfortable with cable TV, free Wi-fi, a refrigerator, a Keurig coffee machine with mugs, sugar, and creamers available. Elsewhere on the property there is a community kitchen featuring an oven, a microwave, and a refrigerator as well as a laundry room and ice machine.
They provide breakfast in the morning (bagels, fruit salad, pastries, oatmeal, coffee, and to my surprise warm sausage, egg and cheese sandwiches that I was lucky to get my hands on). After I did a lot of sight seeing on Saturday, I came back to my room to find that it had been cleaned as good as new except for one addition; Dog treats in my dog’s bowl!
On Saturday night, Don and Shelley had the grill going and a nice camp fire lit towards the back of the property and invited me and my dog to have some food with some of the other guests and friends/family of theirs. They knew me by my first name which also impressed me and made them seem even more personable. They could not be more friendly and accommodating.
The property is a very easy 10 to 15 minute drive from Lake Placid. It is a very comfortable, respectful, peaceful, and lax atmosphere which is exactly what I needed. I will definitely be going back! Two thumbs up.
