I had a conference at the High Peaks this past weekend and for the most part, the stay was very enjoyable. The conference was a little disorganized when it came to the buffet setup during meals but I thought the food was great, one of the best cuts of Prime Rib I have ever had in fact. The room I...

Absolutely wonderful. We attended a large conference there and every need was seen to. The staff was very friendly, welcoming and accommodating. My room was perfect (clean and comfortable). Food delicious and plentiful.

This hotel provides clean, large rooms with contemporary designs that work well with the rustic Adirondack look, and great location, with very helpful staff that make you feel at home. Oh, I cannot forget to mention the free cookies in the lobby with coffee and tea.

This hotel/spa is amazing, everything is at your fingertips. Central location, plenty of parking. Highly satisfied with our experience. If staying at the Lake House side. its newly renovated, but I am not a fan of the dark decore. Rooms were small. Hotel however, is bright and we love staying there!

My boyfriend and I stayed in the High Peaks Resort in Lake Placid from April 6th to April 8th. The moment we got to the hotel we were welcomed with a smile.

We stayed here for one night on our way to Montreal. We got the room for $80 on Hotwire, and for $80 this property was a fantastic value. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the fitness center was nice. That said, if we had paid full price for this ("4 Star") property, we probably would have been a bit...

We traveled to Lake Placid during St Patricks' week, for skiing at Whiteface mountaiin, and also for relaxation. We were delightfully surprised when we got to the High Peaks resort.

We struck out on our own for this vacation. All the employees at High Peaks Resort and Lake House were so very helpful with being local to the area with tips and suggestions. Everything was outstanding! The properties were centrally located within walking distance of all the shopping, sights and activities. The food at Dancing Bears Restaurant was delicious.

Stayed in room 708 in the lake view suites. The rooms are built into the side of a small ridge/cliff overlooking Mirror Lake. The only negative to our stay was that we had ants in our room. From speaking to staff, this is expected for the time of year and since the hotel is "underground", the rooms are more susceptible...
