“Weekend on the Lake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012 via mobile

This place is great. Centrally located to town, has a pool on the lake and kayaks and a dock on the lake. Our room walked right out to lake. Our room was a nice size, clean and the bathroom was clean and big as well. The lake was clean, we went kayaking, swam and lounged by lake. I also love that allow dogs of all sizes (only complaint is that you can't leave your dog unattended). You walk right out and you are in town of lake placid. There is also a great walking/running loop right outside the hotel that loops around the lake.

I am already planning my next stay there.

My new husband and I honeymooned in Lake Placid and after much research on Tripadvisor, decided to stay at the High Peaks Resort. Upon our arrival, we were told that we had been upgraded to a Lake View Suite. We were so pleased when we saw how beautiful and spacious the room was, not to mention the stunning view. We could not have been happier and hated to leave. It was very nice to be within walking distance of almost everything that Lake Placid has to offer and the fact that the resort is pet friendly was a definite plus. We didn't bring him along this time, but we will most certainly be back with our four-legged friend!

This was our second stay at High Peaks and we have nothing but good things to say. First, the hotel provides a fine price point between the less than exciting mid-range and chain hotels in the area and the very high end like Mirror Lake, etc. that are pricier than High Peaks without offering a substantially better experience. Location at the more tranquil end of Main Street is excellent, the views overlooking Mirror Lake are great, and the service and cleanliness are similarly fine. The bathrooms are spacious and well-appointed. The Dancing Bears restaurant is casual but cozy and provides a tasty and full breakfast and a decent enough dinner for a night. If you have the time to stay there during the week, the hotel also offers some nice deals. We will definitely be returning for a third time.

HIgh Peaks is an older property that has been well-maintained and updated. They did a great job of updating the bathrooms and creating a spa-like atmosphere. To respond to some other reviews-yes, the rain-type shower head requires that you either wash your hair or utilize the provided shower cap, but in our room there was also a hand-held shower nozzle on the wall, so there is an option. If you are a tv/news junkie, the tv speakers in the bathroom are a nice treat! The bed was very comfortable and the pillows and linens were high quality. At this price point you usually don't find the luxurious bathrobes/slippers, but High Peaks has them.
If you are looking for a place that is walkable to everything, this is where you want to stay. Other than driving to a hiking trail about 10 miles away, we left our car in the hotel garage and walked everywhere during our entire stay. Ask for a higher floor to get a nice lake view.

I had a king room with balcony and lake view. The room was very clean, with a very comfy bed, and nice shower. Overall, I was very impressed by the quality of the furnishing.

On the minus side:
- Room service food was so-so... not very tasty...
- Indoor pool looks outdated... but I did appreciate resting in the hot tub after a day of hiking
- Overpriced... the room is very nice, but not worth the price point.
- Breakfast was not included

On the plus side:
- Convenient location right in the heart of Lake Placid
- Beautiful room and views
- Parking is included

My husband and I have stayed here before, and stayed for a Fri-Sun weekend in October. Everything here is as nice as it always was. The rooms are very clean, the staff is helpful and the facilities are very well maintained. Plus the bed was really comfortable! No complaints here!

My wife and I stayed here during a great motorcycle ride through New England. The staff could not have been more pleasant, the rooms were beautiful, beds were comfortable, the ocation was perfect! We had a pool level room with a patio out to the pool...very nice place to relax and enjoy Lake Placid. Everything was perfect!
