This was the first time my husband & I went to Lake Placid. Friends of ours had stayed here, and raved about it. The room was good sized. The bathroom looked like a spa. Our room had a view of Mirror Lake, and it was beautiful. My only complaint is, I ordered beer to be in our room, it was... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for the only two vacations we've ever taken to Lake Placid and both trips were so much fun. The view over Mirror Lake is incredibly beautiful especially at sunset or when there's a full moon. The hotel is a 4.5 star in my opinion and the accommodations are great . The staff is very... More

We loved the nice touches added to this room to make it feel more like home. We enjoyed the beautiful view from our balcony as well as the convenient location. Check in was ready and service exceptional.

We stayed there for three nights. The hotel is at very good location with a lot of amenities, include multiple pools, free use of their rowboats and kayaks on Lake Mirror, for which we took advantage of in the morning room. The room is of good size and clean, my only complain about the room is the shower curtain (we... More

We ended up checking into High Peaks after originally trying the Summit Hotel right across the street. The Summit was grungy and my wife and I were troubled by unclean rooms so we checked out soon after checking in and went right across the street to the High Peaks. I'm pretty picky and I like things to be clean but... More

My Boyfriend and I stayed at the High Peaks Resort last week during a motorcycle tour of New England. The resort was lovely - the rooms fantastic - Dancing Bears was wonderful.... we noticed other people getting great service and friendly help - but, we didn't. Granted, we rolled in on our bikes and maybe looked a little road worn,... More

The hotel is walking distance from Main Street. The room was spacious and seemed newly decorated. The bathroom was large. There wasn't a bathtub which didn't bother us. The shower stall was huge with a seat and rain shower and a separate hand shower. The door to the bathroom was a bit odd with a page glass on the upper... More

I attended a wedding in Lake Placid over Labor Day weekend and stayed at the High Peaks Resort. I chose one of the Waterfront Rooms, which offered direct access to Mirror Lake. I wish I could have stayed longer. The room was spacious, well furnished and impeccable. I loved being able to walk out of the sliding doors onto the... More

We are a family from Montreal with a 2 children (12 yr old boy and 10 yr old girl) that is used to staying at nice places. We were interested in this place initially because it said it had access to the lake (which it does) and it has 3 pools (2 outdoors and one indoors). It also was close... More
