A great respite after a long drive. We arrived to the smells of hot cocoa and chocolate chip cookies and smiles at the resistration desk. Check in was easy and our room was ready. We overlooked the main street and Mirror Lake. Very nice. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable. The bath was wonderful! Double shower heads in a... More

When we first got there, we were welcomed to the smell of a warm fireplace. Our room was not ready, but the front desk gave us a key to get back in the bottom entrance. When it finally was, the woman at the desk, Lisa, allowed us to pick from two different rooms in the same category we reserved. It... More

The Hotel was wonderful. Our room looked out over the Lake it is in the center of town so it was perfect for returning quickly with our purchases!

My husband and I spent one night here earlier this week and had a great stay. The hotel was pretty empty, but it was a random time of year with nothing going on in town. The hotel is beautiful inside and we found it to be spotless everywhere. The location at the end of Main Street is perfect for being... More

We spent a weekend in Lake Placid and decided to try High Peaks. Our room was not ready when we arrived early but we received a call when it was available. The room had a real nice view of the lake and mountains. Our room was clean, had a refrigerator and a huge shower. There were two shower heads available... More

My husband and I stayed at this resort at the end of October. It was past the fall foliage peak, but there was still some leaves on the trees. The room with the king size bed had a gorgeous view of the mountain as well as the beautiful Mirror Lake which was basically right outside the hotel. The hotel is... More

We recently spent a late October weekend up at High Peaks Resort in Lake Placid, NY. It was a beautiful hotel right on Mirror Lake (just south of Lake Placid, right in the heart of the town of Lake Placid). They have three separate housings for the hotel, and we stayed in the Waterfront Collection King Suite. It was incredible.... More

I was disappointed with this hotel. I had read reviews that stated "amazing view" but from an upgraded, view room, our view was mainly of the closed outdoor pool. If you look beyond the pool and the tops of the buildings on main street, you can see the lake. I was expecting more. The room itself was small and furnishings... More
