We booked a last minute trip to Lake Placid. Since it was our first time, we were flying blind. The reviews for High Peaks were great and the rates were reasonable. My wife and two children (9 & 7) checked into the High Peaks resort and we're greeted by a friendly and attentive front desk clerk. We found everyone at the Hotel to be extremely accommodating. They went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and happy. We weren't sure what to expect checking in on Christmas Eve, but everything went smooth. Our room was ready early and we were excited to unpack and get settled in. The lobby is beautiful and modern with the inviting and glowing fire place next to the lobby bar. Since it was a Holiday week, the Hotel was beautifully festive.
Our room was clean, but small. Two Queen beds for the four of us was a little tight. We'll need a bigger room (suite) on our next trip. Fortunately, there is so much to do in Lake Placid we weren't in our room to often. It was a ski trip for us and we should have researched more ski and stay packages. High Peaks offered a lot of help in planning excursions and activities.
One evening, our truck wouldn't start and they had someone from maintenance at our car to help give us a jump immediately. Very impressive.
The restaurant on-site, Dancing Bear was very good. Awesome staff, great food/drinks at affordable prices. Venture out, Lake Placid has other great dining spots.
Would definitely recommend High Peaks to friends and family.
