Bed & Breakfast and Guest Cottage

"We had an absolutely marvelous time at the Spruce Lodge.  

Thank you for the use of your immaculate lodge nestled in the beauty of the mountains"

                                                                              - a guest commented


A family run lodge for 50 years, and the
Lake Placid home for the Swiss Bobsled Team and New Zealand Skeleton


"We always assumed that the Spruce Lodge was built around 1910, but we had a visitor here recently who said that his grandfather built the Spruce Lodge as his home in the late 1800's", claims Carol Hoffman.  


Guy and Alta Wescott purchased the Spruce Lodge in 1949.  Their 8 children were old enough to be on their own, so Alta ran the Spruce Lodge as a tourist home for many years.


Carol Hoffman, one of their 23 grandchildren, bought the Spruce Lodge from her grandmother's estate in 1986.  A few of Carol's cousins were running it as a Bed and Breakfast, so Carol continued to operate it as a B&B.  It was important to Carol to keep the atmosphere at the Spruce Lodge the same as it was when she visited her grandparents, but some changes were necessary to keep the building up to date.  


The guest's who now stay at the Spruce Lodge, describe it as cozy and homelike, and that is the feeling that Carol is after.  


With over an acre and a half of property, the Spruce Lodge borders a large pond at the back of the property.




The Spruce Lodge has the wide variety of affordably priced accommodations, located in the Main House, the Apartment, the Cottage and the Townhouses.   


This beautiful bed and breakfast is nestled in the heart of Lake Placid, and is just 10 minutes from all of the area activities.  Some nearby activities include canoeing, fishing, golf, hiking, sailing, sight-seeing, shopping, downhill skiing, snow shoeing, swimming, tennis, cross-country skiing, horseback riding and bicycle riding.  You can easily get to all of the Olympic venues within about 10 minutes as well.


If you happen to miss your household companions while staying at the Spruce Lodge, Simon or Simone will be glad to keep you company.
