I came by train / bus and I was very happy I selected The Haus. I was drawn by their eco friendly feel, birch / white clean decor and large rooms. My expectations were met on all points and more. The room was very large, with just the right touches of decoration.

I appreciated the Aveda products, the comfortable bed, the overall space, the welcome.
Next time I will book the room with a fireplace to top it off!
As expected there is no common areas but you are right on main street, so you have more than enough options to pick form - I waited for my bus at High Peaks with the fireplace.

I wanted a relaxing experience in style and fashion, and it's what I got; The Haus delivers what they promise on the website and that's unique.

Staying at The Haus was a dream come true! Our room (Suite 1) was beautiful; chic yet comfy, with all the amenities to make your stay easy and enjoyable. The room was tastefully decorated and laid out with some delightfully unique touches (loved the birch trees behind the bed!).
There was plenty to do in the Lake Placid area, whether you are looking for outdoor adventure or shopping and cafes, and the management provided a binder full of activity ideas and recommendations.
Anthony was very welcoming and personable, both before hand and during our stay. I only met Andrea very briefly but she seemed great too.
It was a pleasure to stay here- The Haus was everything I was looking for in a Lake Placid weekend getaway. I only wish I could have stayed longer, and hope I'll be able to return someday!

This is not our first stay at The Haus and will not be our last. It is absolutely wonderful, a great mix of B&Bs and boutique hotel. The decor is very tasteful and in the style of the region without too much (love the chandelier going up the stairs, the old skis, etc.). We felt right at home. The views are gorgeous and the location is perfect, right downtown next to cafes and shops. We are two Montrealers (Lake Placid is only a short 2 hour drive from home, including stop at the border), fond of the outdoors and we love the laid back feel of the Haus. Hiking and skying are just a short ride away from the Haus. Anthony and Andrea are wonderful hosts, very helpful.

Great accommodations - the owner was extremely helpful and had us checked in and settled within minutes (perfect after the camping segment of our trip left us craving some comfort). The suite was immaculate, and the extra space of a living room and kitchen area allowed us to spread out and make ourselves right at home. Mirror Lake was a few steps from our door, and the convenient location cannot be beat. Our experience was 100% enjoyable.

The Haus has a remarkable combination of being right in the center of town while still feeling like it's miles away from everything. We stayed in suite 8, which is on the top floor on the lake side (mirror lake - the village of Lake Placid is located on Mirror Lake, not Lake Placid, which is surrounded mostly by private homes), and it was perfect. The architecture is beautiful, the entire suite was bright and clean and furnished in a tastefully modern style. The bedroom was large with a nicely sized en suite bathroom, and the bed was very comfortable (a big plus, since we were there for the Lake Placid Marathon). The kitchen is fantastic, with a full sized refrigerator, oven/stove, coffee maker, dishes, silverware, pots, pans, and other kitchen tools. There is a nice bar in the kitchen that looks into the living room. The living room is a very comfortable place to relax, and has a door that leads to the large deck, which has a spectacular view of Mirror Lake. It was great sitting out there in the morning and night to take in the beautiful scenery. We met Anthony, the owner, when we checked in. He helped us with our (very heavy) suitcase, and was very friendly and gracious.

We've been to Lake Placid a number of times and have never been disappointed with our accommodations, but this is probably our favorite place. The combination of a beautiful suite, convenient location in town, and lovely location on the lake is unbeatable (not to mention the very reasonable rate!). We will definitely be staying at The Haus the next time we're in town.

Pros: The Haus offers just a few (about 8) apartments/suites for rent right in downtown Lake Placid. If you're looking for a very comfortable, relaxing place to stay without the hustle and bustle of the resorts then this is the place for you. They try to be as sustainable and eco-friendly as possible and it is run by a local family. The bed was very comfortable and the jaccuzi tub was great after a long day out in the snow. I love staying someplace that has a kitchen so we can have a relaxing morning drinking tea in our pajamas without having to get dressed and showered before breakfast. If it hadn't been frigid outside, the balcony overlooking Mirror Lake would have been really nice too.

Cons: The only downside here is that there is relatively little sound-proofing between the floors of the different suites. We were on the second floor and I think the people on the third floor either had a toddler wearing boots or they were clog dancing. Luckily they were quiet by 9 pm. If you're a light sleeper or worried about the noise, either book a unit on the third floor or bring earplugs or a white noise machine.

Thank you for your comments. Since you posted this review we now request guests notify us with any issues they may have during their stay. And to your concern we replaced the area rugs with thick padded custom fit area carpets to help dampen footfalls (in all our top floor rooms). As we don't live in the rooms ourselves comments such as yours help us better address any shortfall to our remodeling.

We have done our utmost with renovations to our historic little lodge on the lake, consciously choosing to restore the hardwood floors rather than wall to wall carpet. I hope you will consider us again in warmer climes.
