Hotel is located within walking distance of the Lake Placid main street. Rooms are spacious and well furnished. Great view on the lake. Lounge area is pretty bare. Looks like being unfinished (e.g. bare concrete floor). Strangely enough there is no reception, just a little shield telling you to go to the more luxureous hotel across the street for check... More

We stayed two nights at this hotel. View of Mirror Lake from our balcony was gorgeous. Malorie was very helpful at check in. She gave me information about a local attraction and suggested a very good place to eat. We visited a few local attractions but mostly took in the beauty of the area. When booking your room, be sure... More

The new High Peaks owners did a very fine job of renovating this hotel, which had been in definite need of TLC. The rooms are clean, cozy and well-appointed, with excellent views of Mirror Lake. The addition of a "great" common room with bar and fireplace is a nice touch. The High Peaks across the street has a more luxurious... More

I stayed recently and would without a doubt stay again. The Lake House was clean and quiet with a modern twist on cabin decor. The view from our room/private balcony was OUTSTANDING!!! I could sit on the balcony for hours just taking in the view of the lake and mountains!

Found this place on line and checked it out in person. At first it seemed outdated and a different. But soon realized it was designed to be retro and all was okay. Got a great rate, check in matched low internet price which was better than expected. Gentlemen who greeted us were vary friendly and helpful. Location is great for... More

Stayed for two nights in September. Great rates. We enjoyed the free daily fresh coffee available in the lobby every morning. In the late afternoon the coffee is replaced by free lemon water and granola bars for when you return from a hike. We enjoyed the indoor pool and whirlpool in our complex. There is also an outdoor heated pool... More

My husband and I stayed here for a couple of nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Its part of the high Peaks hotel, but right across the street. If you come early before check in time, you must go over to the High Peaks to check in, otherwise there is someone in the lobby with an IPad, that has all... More

My wife and I enjoyed a quiet two-night stay over the Labor Day weekend. Most of my comments echo those of other reviews -- the room was freshly renovated, clean and spacious. The location is fantastic and the view is excellent. We were pleasantly surprised with the room since we had initially booked under the Lakeview Motor Inn. A great... More

We are a couple who stayed one evening in August 2014. I liked the funky Adirondack style and the view of the lake from our room was fabulous. Location is central and makes for easy walking to the shops and dining. The room was large and the bed very comfortable. Would definitely stay here again.
