The Lake House is a fun place to stay. The atmosphere is great and the decor is beautiful. The location is great as well- great views of Mirror Lake and close to restaurants and shopping. Also, the staff are so friendly and helpful.

My wife and I stayed here for one night. The hotel is clean and has three floors. There is a lower level, ground level, and second floor. We were lucky to get a room that was on the top floor. There appeared to me limited parking and it did fill up as the hotel must have been fully booked when...

We got snowed in following a hockey tournament. High peaks offered us a stay here. It was a great place for our large group to hang out and the hospitality was amazing! Rooms left something to be desired but we really only slept in them.

Newly renovated hotel, with a nice lobby and common area, unfortunately it feels too much like the kids room within the bigger resort to which it belongs. Was expecting a lively lobby, and found an empty room. For the price, was expecting a room a little better (was on the small side, cramped, no robe, ...). The lobby lounge is...

Very good hotel for small children. Rooms were spacious and clean. Bathroom a little small but didn't care. Nice room next to the bar for kids to play board games and building blocks. Pool clean and fun. Only negatives- food or small snacks are needed in the bar room. No kitchen in hotel but happy hour snacks could probably be...

My fiance took me to Lake Placid in Dec of 2016 to propose. I know, totally cute. When we were pulling into town (I didn't know why we were there) I complained as he told me he had booked us a "motel". Well this was certainly the nicest motel we stayed in. I honestly wouldn't call it a motel, but...

We loved this hotel. It is part of the High Peaks Resort across the street, but has a much more laid-back atmosphere as there are fewer rooms and fewer amenities. It also has a mid-century modern feel to it, which we enjoyed. Pros: -large common room, not overcrowded, with fireplace, ample tables for reading, chatting, pool and foosball for the...

The rooms were clean, the view was amazing, the staff was super friendly, the bartenders made great drinks and have a great selection of beer, Free coffee in the lobby area in the morning while you watch the sunrise. It was a perfect day and we can't wait to return!
