We recently had the opportunity to spend 3 nights at the lodge. My two daughters enjoyed the water park, Arcade Center, and Bear Foot Recreation Center. The restaurant, bar, and room were comfortable and inviting. But what made the trip for us was the hospitality. Every staff member we encountered was professional and accommodating. In particular Tami and Justin went...

We had a really nice time at HLL. The check-in was fast and the people at the reception desk very knowledgeable and willing to help. The room was nice and clean. The water park is a great place to spend a few hours. Breakfast buffet was Ok and reasonably priced.

We went to see some leaf color, and see it, we did! We were lucky enough to hit the tress at peak color, and enjoyed a chairlift ride on Greek Peak Mountain on a warm, sunny day, which provided beautiful views of the Lodge. The rooms, lodge and grounds were very clean, and the room decor was very welcoming. We...

My extended family and I stayed at the lodge this past weekend for a family event in Cortland. We’re originally from Cortland, and knew little of the lodge except that it could accommodate us on a very busy Columbus day weekend. In fact, what we did know wasn’t great, although that was from its former ownership. The lodge is fabulous!...

Firstly, the area of Hope Lake is AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL. The approaching drive of undulating (read: "steep") roads is awesome enough by itself. You get the impression the lodge is mainly for skiing, but they have lots of summer activities too. Six of us stayed at Hope Lodge, so we had a A, B & C arrangement - all interconnecting rooms...

We had booked a two bedroom suite and the rooms were large, with great amenities and well equipped kitchen. Friendly staff and good service overall. Water park is good but slightly pricey, as compared other water parks we have seen. Ithaca and Cortland are all nearby, where you have lots of food choices.

We had a great time at Hope Lake Lodge last summer, so we decided to come back this summer. Unfortunately a few things were lacking is time around. Last summer they offered kids face painting every day and my kids loved it. This summer face painting is only offered on Fridays and Saturdays so our kids were quite disappointed to...
