Very nice property-great view from the second floor of Mirror Lk. The free boat use(kayak,SUP,paddle boat) was a great cost savings and we made full use of them. As well the small private swimming area on the lake was great as well. Mirror Lk. is small but very clean and no power boats-great for a kayak.

Loved staying here. Happy hour from 4-7pm, with hors d'oeuvres on Friday night. Right in the heart of Lake Placid with access to everything! What a relaxing weekend get-away. Staff was welcoming and friendly. Rooms were clean and quiet.

Dear Christopher D, Thank you for your review of the Lake House! The lobby bar is the best way to start your night. With Happy Hour being from 4-7 it is the perfect place to relax and have a drink before heading to dinner or downtown. We hope to see you again! Connor - Lake House Host More

Booked last minute to stay overnight after picking up kids at camp in Saranac lake. Staff was very friendly. Booked 2 rooms and they made sure we had adjoining rooms. Kids really enjoyed activities at mirror lake, swimming, paddle boarding and using the paddle boats. Sat out on the balcony and enjoyed the evening views. Had a great stay!

Great view. Great balcony. The lobby and bar was very unique, warm, and welcoming with a great view. Lakeside pool is an ideal location. Paddle boards, kayaks, and peddle boats all complimentary. AJ met us upon arrival and was extremely accommodative and kind. I would recommend second or third floor balcony rooms. Great experience.
