Obviously a very recent remodel of a 1961 hotel, Lake House is rustic and kind of retro/hip. Rooms are large and each room has either a patio or balcony with good views of Lake Flower/mountains. Bathrooms on the small side, but were fine. Wall color of the rooms are dark grey, so it seemed kind of cave-like, but it was... More

We just returned from a 6 day stay at Lake House. Our room was very large, with a balcony overlooked Mirror Lake. Lovely view. The room, and the hotel overall, was not luxurious but it was comfortable. We took the "Green Plan", which means no housekeeping and got a credit of $5 a day. Clean towels and coffee refills were...

OK, you own an aging hotel built in the 60's on one of the most valuable lakefront corners in Lake Placid. What to do? Keep it, give it an edgy update,and infuse new energy and a hip vibe, (think vintage adk meets urban chic) then sell the rooms at an affordable rate, which is exactly what this owner has done....

The room was quite clean and reasonably well appointed. The staff was friendly and courteous. I hope they can add room service options at some point in the future. The wifi could use a boost. It's on the slow side.

we have been to the lake house many times over the past 10 years and always enjoyed it. However, the new décor was quite a shock. If I wanted the hipster look I would have gone to Williamsburg instead! The red doors and black reminded me of Motel 6. Not good. It definitely needed a sprucing up but I am... More

This is our 4th time staying and we were looking forward to seeing the renovations. Looks like it was a buget based change because except for alot of dark shiny Gray paint with red trim and new red wool blanket on each bed everything else was the same. Yes the ceiling is now covered with wood, and new lamps but... More

I have stayed in Lake Placid since I was little. I have stayed at High Peaks Resort a couple times and then a run of the mill places there along the way. I was so psyched to find an email about the Lake House renovation. I had always wanted to stay at the former namesake based on view and locatino... More

They did a great job wih the renovation. Room was spacious, clean, and attractive. Fantastic lake view from all rooms. The beach access at High Peaks was terrific, with kayaks and paddle boats for general use. Perfect location right at the end of the main town drag, but less noise. Loudly stay here again.

My wife, daughter and I stayed at the Lake House for 2 nights in late July, 2014 and while we were very impressed with the newly renovated facilities and loved the overall classic Adirondack aesthetic, we couldn't help but be let down by a couple of factors. The first factor being the overwhelming smell of paint in our ground floor... More

Last week was our 1st stay at the Lake House and it won't be the last. Great location very nicely renovated. Modern Adirondack. Love the "family room " with comfy couches, huge windows over looking the lake. I love that they have board games for families to enjoy after a full day of the outdoors. Great place for families.
