Directions to The Inn (also see the local map below):

Coming from the South (New York City / Albany):

Our sign in front of The InnFrom Albany NY, take The Adirondack Northway (also known as Interstate 87). Drive north 103 miles to Exit 30. At Exit 30, take a left and follow the signs to Whiteface Mountain (ski center). You will pass through the small hamlets of Keene Valley and then Keene. In Keene, just after passing a Stewart's Shop (gas and grocery store), take a right. You will have traveled 15 miles from exit 30 to here. Head to Upper Jay (route 9N) for approximately 6 miles. There will be a sign on the right for Whiteface, followed by a sharp curve. At the curve, proceed straight up the hill. You will come to a road on your left - Fox Farm Road. The name of the road is on a small ski sign and there is also a "KOA" sign. Take that left. (If you see the Whiteface Chalet, you just missed it). Within a mile you will come to Route 86. Take a left and The Inn is a little over a mile on your right. (If you get to the entrance road for Whiteface Mountain you just passed us). Look for a blue and gold sign that says "The Inn at Whiteface."

Coming from the North (Montreal / Plattsburgh):

Take the Adirondack Northway (also known as Interstate 87) heading south, past Plattsburgh, NY. Get off at Exit 34. Take a left - you are now on route 9N. This will take you through the towns of Clintonville, AuSable Forks and to the town of Jay. At a 4-way intersection in Jay, you will take a right onto route 86 and climb a long hill. This will eventually take you to the town of Wilmington. In Wilmington, after crossing a large stone bridge, you will reach another 4-way intersection. Take a left, staying on route 86 and heading in the direction of Lake Placid. After leaving the town of Wilmington, and after a couple miles, keep an eye out for our blue and gold sign that says "The Inn at Whiteface." We are on the right side of the road. (If you get to the entrance for the Whiteface Mountain ski center, you just passed us).

Coming from the West (Saranac Lake / Lake Placid):

Follow road maps to Lake Placid. Coming from the west you will enter Lake Placid on route 86.

Continue to the second stoplight, which is at a 4-way intersection. You will want to continue straight ahead - continuing on route 86 (following signs that say Whiteface Mountain and/or Wilmington). After several miles you will pass "High Falls Gorge" (a tourist attraction) and then the entrance to Whiteface Mountain ski center. We are located just a few tenths of a mile past the entrance to Whiteface. Look for our blue and gold sign that says "The Inn at Whiteface." We are on the left side of the road.
