Simplicity and price of staying in a motel when in fact your are sleeping in a newly renovated hotel room. Great price, friendly staff and perfect location. Lake House is 20 steps away from downtown and the millions restaurants/bars and boutiques. Would I recommend to a friend and my family..... Definetely !

Spacious rooms, excellent view from your patio or balcony and you can use all the amenities from the High Peaks resort. There is an indoor pool and hot tub right in the Lake house and you can use the fitness room in the main building just across the road. Lots of amenities here. We have stayed here many times over...

Dear Mike, Thank you so much for your kind review of Lake House. We're thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. Thank you also for your suggestion about the microwave - we have levied a small charge for use of a microwave, which I am presently reviewing. However, you should not have been charged for a refrigerator,... More

My family stayed at the Lake House and attended a wedding reception in the main building. Check-in was a bit confusing as I was unsure that I could actually check in at the Lake House building. There was a table in the lobby with a laptop on it. A sign would be helpful. Our room was clean. Both the beach... More

The lake house was the perfect place for my family and dog. The rooms were spacious and stylish. We were on the lower floor which was ideal for having a dog. There is a back door in the room so you can easily walk the dog or just sit outside and stare at the beautiful mountainous/lake view. We didn't have... More

I would have to classify the Lake House as the unwanted step child of the High Peaks Resort. It is located across the street from the higher end High Peaks but unless you know the two places are one business, you do not know where to check in. It looks like the Lake House was another hotel at one point... More

We just stayed there on July 19th. Hotel is clean and going through renovations. Staff was really friendly and room was o.k. We were on the bottom floor which is lake view from the room but if you sit outside in the chairs the view is lost. You look at an overgrown hedge. What they need to do is cut... More

We can't wait to come back!! The new rooms are gorgeous. The pine on the ceiling gives it such a rustic feel, yet still feeling very contemporary with a flat screen TV, a coffee maker, and an IPOD compatible alarm clock. It was quiet and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Beds were super comfortable and everything was spotless.... More

I love Lake House. Our room had a balcony which faced the lake. Though we had our car, we just decided to walk down main street. Location was good. The room was very clean and modern. The toiletries provided were very good. David at the bar was very helpful with all the questions we asked him. The hotel had free... More

Spur of the moment, decided to drive to Lake Placid (with my 14 year old dog).. Searching for a (reasonably priced) place, found the Lake House.. Tremendous spot! The Lake House is on the edge of town --- easy walk to shops, restaurants, and Mirror Lake... Walk a bit further and reach the Olympic stuff... Front desk people were very... More
