The High Peaks Resort is a fantastic place to spend a family vacation. Its proximity to Mirror Lake and Main Street make it one of the most convenient places in Lake Placid. The rooms are a bit dated but the staff, location and amenities more than make up for that.

Joseph, Sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us. I apologize that the noise and light were not better blocked from the room and that you were disturbed by a barking dog. We require guests to be in control of their dogs at all times which means they cannot be left in their guest room unattended. I am sorry this was your experience. We will keep your feedback in mind for future revisions of the room, we update them frequently to provide the best stay possible. Thank you for choosing High Peaks Resort.
