We planned a last minute two-day vacation in Lake Placid as a family get-away with our two college-aged boys. We wanted something a bit more special than just a typical hotel and the High Peaks Resort was perfect. Pictures don't do this place justice. As others have written, everyone was so helpful and friendly, but we found that to be true of everyone in town.
The hotel is modern, clean and spacious. Unfortunately, I have a broken ankle and had to navigate using either crutches or a knee scooter. I had no problems maneuvering around the room or bathroom. There is a huge flight of stairs going down to the restaurant, but the staff showed us an elevator that took us down to the street level where we walked outside for a short distance to the outside entrance of the restaurant.
We got the bed and breakfast plan which was wonderful. Our kids went to the Dancing Bears early in the morning for a full breakfast (and I do mean, a FULL breakfast) before getting on the shuttle to go skiing at Whiteface.
The views from our room were beautiful. We were able to see the dog sleds on the lake. We hope to return and I would certainly splurge the extra money for a view during the summer.
The hotel is at a great location in town. Parking is in short supply so the hotel is perfectly located so guests can just park the car and walk throughout the town. There is also a two level parking garage so during the winter, you can park the car on the covered level.
Perfect! Will definitely stay here when we return!
