We stayed here for one night on our way to another place in the Adirondacks. What a great location! The property is right on Main Street but much of the hotel seems very secluded from the hustle and bustle. We had a room on the fifth floor facing Mirror Lake and the view was lovely. We enjoyed sitting out on... More

We spent our anniversary at the Lake House, overlooking Mirror Lake....we come each year on the fourth and enjoyed extra amenities (the champagne and chocolate covered strawberries delivered to our room prior to the fireworks were totally unexpected and thoroughly enjoyed). The recent renovations had a few glitches, but the staff eagerly made our stay more than enjoyable and very... More

This is a well maintained hotel right on Main Street, Lake Placid. Our room was beautifully decorated in the Adirondack look and very clean. The balcony overlooked the pool with views of Mirror Lake. We had lunch at the restaurant in the hotel sitting outside again with wonderful views of Mirror lake. The staff were all friendly and it was... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night on the final leg of a longer trip. We had previously been staying at smaller inns and boutique hotels so perhaps my expectations were off but I was not thrilled by my experience here especially given the cost. I may as well have stayed at a holiday inn and saved some money.... More

High Peaks Resort is spread over three properties. We chose the one in the middle overlooking Mirror Lake since it was newly renovated and still smelled of paint. What a wonderful hotel with two outdoor and two indoor pools and access to kayaks and paddle-boats. We spent the two days in the kayaks and lounging around the pools. The lounge... More

My wife, daughter and I stayed one night at this hotel mother's day weekend 2014; we checked out to rush to my daughter's basketball game early Sunday morning and when we returned home realized that we left some clothes hanging in the closet. My wife contacted the front desk right away and I was ready to drive the 90 minutes... More

We spent 3 relaxing nights at the High Peaks Resort and loved it. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was great and looked over Mirror Lake. The Fitness Facility and pool areas were clean and well equipped. The hotel is centrally located on the main street so it is a short walk to anywhere. I would recommend... More

We had an awesome stay at the High Peaks Resort. Thanks for the friendly service at front desk from Lisa! We loved our room. It was huge in size and what an amazing view. Amazing shower! Right "downtown" Lake Placid. Its where you want to stay if you visit LP!

We came to Lake Placid for an old timer's hockey game and received a package deal at this resort. We checked in at a beautiful building, but we're told that our room was in the building across the street. Upon entering the building, we were met with a strong pungent odor...paint fumes! It must have been oil-based paint. The smell... More
