Wow...what a cool hotel with amazing views of Lake Placid and the mountains. Really nice helpful staff. Comfortable and clean room with a private balcony. Very impressed with everything I've experienced. Convenient location within walking distance to the shopping, restaurants and bars.

We visited during the slow season, mid-April. We loved our room and they upgraded us to a 2 Queen Bed room with a 2nd floor view of Mirror Lake. THere was no staff at Lake House. We had to check in and out at High Peaks Resort. Also, no tea service at High Peaks in the mornings and evenings, although...

I've been to Lake Placid a few times now, and I think I've finally found a place I'll return to. One location was just a touch too expensive, the other was far away and outdated. While this is located toward the end of the main strip, it's very close to several quality restaurants. The big plus, aside the rate, is...
