Overall the Lake House meet all my needs and was a great place to stay. Would stay again in the future. It was nice to be able to get away from the main Resort. More of a home feeling. The staff was very friendly and willing to help with anything and everything I needed.

I have nothing to add but absolute agreement with all 5-star reviews. However, TripAdvisor requires 200 characters, so: The staff is low-key friendly and super-accommodating. The public spaces and guest rooms are welcoming: comfortable and spotlessly clean. There are huge windows with gorgeous views everywhere.

This perfectly situated, retro hotel by Mirror Lake was a very welcome change of pace to most hotels, totally unique, easy going and very cool. The vibe is incredibly relaxed and friendly with no guest "pressure" whatsoever. Our stay here while skiing at Whiteface and exploring Lake Placid absolutely made the trip. The rooms are cozy and clean, each with... More

We spent NewYear's Eve at the Lake House lounge. The decor is very cool, new age Adirondack i.e.. slick and comfy at the same time. Plenty of fun areas to bring a group together. People of all ages were enjoying the vibe. Thanks for hosting!

I Loved, Loved, Loved this place! When one is a single female traveling by herself sometimes it's hard to find a place where one feels safe and comfortable. I not only felt that way but this place has a fabulous view, and a very warm and welcoming staff. It is rare these days to find such hospitality. This is part... More

Our family of four had an outstanding six-day stay at this wonderful hotel, which combines a quiet location and a splendid view of Mirror Lake with easy access to Lake Placid village and a short ride to Whiteface Mountain. Our room was just what we needed; the common room area with fireplace and bar was beautiful and welcoming; the staff... More

I stayed at the Lake House - which is affiliated with the High Peaks Resort-from December 17th-19th. I took the train from Saratoga and arrived at the Lake House around 4:00pm. Check-in was entirely seamless, as John Driscoll (aka Johnny High Peaks) had everything ready for me, including my Olympic Sites Passport that I had indicated to the staff there... More

Every room has a view of a Mirror Lake. But the bar, a large, unbarlike room, has the best views. it was a quiet place with comfortable sofas to relax in. The rooms, which all have a lake view, had recently been renovated and are quite comfortable. In fact, the whole hotel seems to be recently renovated. Lake House's only... More

I looked the Lake House last minute as previous plans fell through. I booked the hotel as part of a getaway where I would propose to my girlfriend. The hotel looks great after the remodeling, with a beautiful lobby/bar that includes a fireplace, comfortable lake view seating, and activities for the family. The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable about... More
