We wanted to enjoy Lake Placid and the snow so decided on High Peaks Resort for 3 days mid-week at end of Jan., 2013. We have a small dog so the fact that HPR was pet friendly factored into our decision.
From check-in to check-out, High Peaks was excellent. The room with a lake view was large, very clean and well maintained and decorated. We loved the newly renovated bathroom. They provided cleaned areas around the property to walk our dog.
We ate dinner at the restaurant each night as it was 20 below zero all three nights and could not leave dog in the room or in the car. The staff served us in the lounge area so we enjoyed our dinners in front of a roaring fire each night. The food was very good. They have happy hour with half price beer and burgers. The Dancing Bears restaurant and bar is at street level and is really very friendly. It seemed to be a gathering place for tourists and locals alike.
The bedding and the bed are excellent. The room was clean and the well heated. They have covered parking and a roof level parking that is not covered.
The front desk staff is exceptional, especially Pam. We really felt comfortable there and were happy we did not have to leave our dog at home. Except for the bitter cold, the stay was fantastic. High recommended.
I would stay here again and plan to the next time we come to Lake Placid.
