I stayed here while boarding at Whiteface Mountain the second weekend in January. The rooms were very clean, comfortable mattress and the view of the lake was spectacular. Everything that the village of Lake Placid has to offer was within walking distance.

First time stay at the Lake House. Very satisfied with the room size and location. Used the pool and hot tub. And dog friendly! Very quiet for sleeping and the beds and pillows were awesomely comfortable. Would definitely return!

The recent renovations are top-notch, very European feel, but with nicely modernized "Adirondack" references and a great central location. Bar/lounge area very nice with a variety of seating options, including game tables. Suggest however greater seating in entry lobby area itself.

I must applaud The lake House for having the best, the most polite, and very professional gentlemen working on your staff.

This hotel was great. Came for a conference and the hotel staff was super friendly and helpful. Johnny High Peaks in particular went above and beyond what was expected and helped me obtain some items I had forgotten to pack. I would totally recommend giving this hotel a try. It's a multi building complex which is annoying in the winter... More

My fiance and I stayed here two nights during the week in late January and it was an incredible experience! We pretty much had the place to ourselves. The room was really nice.

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.
