What a pleasant surprise to stay at the Lake House! It is a modern, chic design yet welcoming and comfortable... Like a guesthouse. We were greeted by friendly and helpful staff...enjoyed a drink at their happy hour overlooking the lake. During our 3 night stay, Connor, John and Jon treated us like welcomed guests! The view from our balcony was... More

Booked this hotel online at a superb rate ($300cdn for two nights). The hotel is in a perfect location on mirror lake and we walked around the lake and to restaurants/dining right around the corner. Our room on the second floor has a patio overlooking the lake. I would recommend asking for second story room as the view of the... More

The Lake House is ideally located in walking distance to shops and restaurants. We were on the second floor and the views of the lake were awesome! I don't know if lower level rooms have a view because there's a hedge that might block, The rooms and bathrooms are VERY small and basic but clean. Other than the room size,... More

Couldn't have asked for anything better. We had a clean room, comfy bed, great view of the lake, and friendly staff. Nice to have the free kayaks and paddle boats available to take out on Mirror Lake!

We originally booked a king bed room at Lake House at High Peaks Resort. When we got there the concierge convinced me to take a double bed at the Lake House because the view was much better. When we got to the room we just dropped our luggage off and went to get something to eat, we were driving all... More

Completely updated from it's '60s origins, this cheerful hotel shares amenities with High Peaks Resort. Indoor and outdoor pools, lake swimming area are a few. Also, an array of boats are available at no extra charge to use on the lake. The great room has the tasteful vibe of a rustic ski lodge and expansive views. Love the decor! Quiet... More

Great: View of lake. Free kayaks. Jumping into the lake. Pet friendly. Easy walk to restaurants. Happy hour at bar. Great price. Not so great: A lot of wood paneling on the ceiling, it has a very strong, curry like smell. Have to walk across street to the pool and dock. Parking spaces can run out at night, you might... More

The room was rustic and spacious. We especially liked the first floor location with the back door with concrete patio and table and 2 chairs. The view of Mirror Lake was very nice from the room. We could walk right across the street to the outdoor pool and use the Kayak's that were free to guests to use. The Kayak's... More

Fantastic location close to dining and with waterfront access. We enjoyed taking the kayaks out on the lake. We also had a great time visiting both outdoor pools. Hotel was very clean and the staff extremely friendly and helpful.

My girlfriend wanted to stay in a resort-style hotel and she found Lake House and was immediately excited by the pictures, reviews, and design of the hotel. We decided to prepay our reservation quite a bit in advance for the most expensive room in the Lake House. We arrived even before check-in time on Friday only to be told by... More
