beautiful facility, friendly staff, lovely fire to sit by in the lobby at night, great location at the end of Main Street - awesome breakfast at Dancing Bears in the a.m. with possibly the best hash browns I've ever had....

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 were called into our room early, which was perfect because we needed a rest before exploring the town. When we checked in, we were instantly upgraded to... More

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... More

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. The check-in process was fast, and everything about the hotel was explained to us. We booked the Waterfront King room, and it was so wonderful. It is separate from the... More

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... More

High peaks was a pleasant surprise with friendly employees and was a very clean facility. It has great amenities including a gym, spa and restaurant. It is dog friendly and located in a very convenient area of Lake Placid.

We stayed over a Saturday and Sunday and a hockey team stayed the same weekend. The hockey team decided to party all night and the management refused to make them quiet down. It got so bad that we had to call the police. I would not recommend for anyone to stay at this resort.
