Located on Paradox Bay on Lake Placid Paradox Lodge offers a unique lodging experience to its guests. There are two houses that are next to one another: the main lodge which is called Paradox has four guest rooms located on the second floor with stair access. The main floor consists of the living room with a gas fireplace and a bar area. The Paradox guest rooms all have private bathrooms. The second lodge located to the left of Paradox is called the Cedar Lodge. The interior has been renovated with local cedar lumber throughout the building. The Cedar rooms are all king rooms with king beds, feather beds, jetted tubs, dual sinks, large European showers, stocked beverage refrigerators, robes, irons and ironing boards. There are two rooms upstairs (stair access) which are called Sky View and Whitney. The downstairs rooms are called Jenkins and Pisgah. The ground floor rooms are slightly larger and both have gas fireplaces and decks. (The fireplaces are turned off from June 1st to September 1st.) Coffee and tea are available in the Cedar lobby area for those guests. There is free WI FI on the property.

Both lodges are uniquely decorated in an Adirondack eclectic style with lots of interesting things to look at. The hosts, Nan and Moses LaFountaine created both of the lodges. Moses did the renovations and also built the tables. Nan decorated the guest rooms and together they filled the walls with paintings, pennants and memorabilia.

In the morning at both hosts are very available to guests who are seeking information, directions or just conversation in general. They are both happy to help in any way.

All guests have access to the kayaks and canoe on a first come first served basis. Life jackets are required by law. There are chairs and picnic tables by the waterfront as well.

In the afternoons and evenings Nan and Moses are available to serve cocktails, beer and wine. In addition to the living room and bar area there are rockers on the front porch as well as tables and chairs. There is also the seating area by the lake.
