Beautiful hotel.. Awesome location. Rooms are extremely nice with one of the best bathrooms I've come across.. You can listen to the tv right in the bathroom! 3 different pools to choose from .. And two jacuzzi's. I highly recommend this place.

This was the first time my husband & I went to Lake Placid. Friends of ours had stayed here, and raved about it. The room was good sized. The bathroom looked like a spa.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for the only two vacations we've ever taken to Lake Placid and both trips were so much fun. The view over Mirror Lake is incredibly beautiful especially at sunset or when there's a full moon. The hotel is a 4.5 star in my opinion and the accommodations are great . The staff is very...

We ended up checking into High Peaks after originally trying the Summit Hotel right across the street. The Summit was grungy and my wife and I were troubled by unclean rooms so we checked out soon after checking in and went right across the street to the High Peaks. I'm pretty picky and I like things to be clean but... More

The hotel is walking distance from Main Street. The room was spacious and seemed newly decorated. The bathroom was large. There wasn't a bathtub which didn't bother us.
