Stayed here for a weekend anniversary getaway. The location was great! We stayed in a second floor room with a view of the water, parking was basically just outside our door. It is a dog friendly hotel, we has contemplated bringing our dog but figured he would bark in the room. We had to listen to a small dog bark... More

I would recommend the Lake House for a relaxing vacation or an event, business or pleasure. The staff and amenities are excellent. They have so much to offer, plus location is perfect. Food at the Dancing Bear is excellent.

I stayed here in July after staying elsewhere in town earlier in the month. This was a much better choice at about 40% of the cost. I had a view and small balcony that over looked the lake. The lobby is simple and invites people to hang out and gather in the great room. Staff was gracious and helpful. Breakfast... More

We chose to stay at Lake House after taking a day trip to Placid to look at hotels and we met Adam (with dark hair) when we came to the hotel to check out rooms. Adam showed us around and was very friendly & knowledgeable about the hotel and rooms. Adam also suggested a place to take a hike up... More

The Lake house had some pluses and minuses. First, it has been updated and the rooms looked good. The rooms had this retro vibe and nice color scheme. This hotel is part of the High Peeks Resort and also had a lot of amenities, because you get to use all three resorts when you stay at one of them. For... More

Stayed here with my boyfriend for a day trip to Lake Placid. We loved the Lake House! Quaint and friendly, warm and inviting, we would stay here again. We utilized the sister High Peaks Resort amenities, took a dip in the lake side pool and hit the indoor jacuzzi after. The Lake House definitely has more of a hipster feel... More

We loved it, so much so, we absolutely plan to stay here again. Great location, great style and a great staff that was very attentive. The Great Room was spacious and comfortable with great views of Mirror Lake. The property is right on the edge of town which made everything close, but still a little removed from crowds.

We really like lake placid, so we picked this for our short honeymoon. The rooms were like a dormatory. The colors of the decor were dark and dismal. we were under the understanding we were going to be on the lake, we were across from the lake. It was very noisy and we had a great amount of flies in...
