Path to pool was... More

I've been at this hotel a few times since I travel to Lake Plaid frequently. I have had good experiences in the past but this time it was exceptionally poor. I called in advance to confirm my reservation and verify I had a balcony with lake view. I was told I did. My room did not have a balcony. The... More

Beautiful room at a great price. Comfortable beds, nice view, great location. Sounds weird to say but the bathroom was so nice. We were surprised in general at the high prices in lake placid and this was a great value for the money. I would definitely stay here again!

Our family visited the High Peaks Resort from July 17-22. We arrived a few hours earlier than the 4pm check-in, but the resort was very accommodating and was able to get us into a room with an amazing view! The room had two very comfortable queen beds and an oversized chair. It was very clean and nicely decorated. The bathroom... More

This was our 2nd trip to Lake Placid and we decided to stay somewhere different, we only stayed for one night here. We got a rate on hotwire.com although we checked right before we left and it was much cheaper so that was disappointing but not the hotel's fault. We had room 117, ground floor, we had requested one bed... More

We recently stayed a few nights here. They have 3 properties one of which is right on the water which I strongly recommend you request. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. They have complimentary kayaks, paddle boats and canoes for guest use. Jet tub and gorgeous walk in shower! If you get the waterfront property you are right next... More

Think this hotel is a tail of two cities with some highs and a few lows: Highs: right on the "strip", easy walking to town, has ample parking, kids loved the pools (there are 3), free kayaks, paddle boats, sunfish paddle bikes. The rooms are appropriately decorated for the Adirondacks and were clean and cheery. The balconies were nice, two... More

My husband and I highly recommend this hotel. He is somewhat handicapped and everything worked out perfectly. The concierge Lisa checked us in and was extremely helpful about where to park. She made sure we had the requested accommodation near the main elevator and arranged for someone to meet me at the car to help with the luggage. For her... More

As they have 3 properties, make sure what you are booking. We were in the main house and had a superior room with a lake view. On their website pictures of the ambiance and the views are quite different. In reality, yes we had a lake view on the background, but 90% of our view consisted of roof area with... More
