We thoroughly enjoyed our stay & have now found our new hotel to stay at whenever we travel to Lake Placid! We stayed in the resort and glad we did. Cleanliness 10/10, location 10/10 and amenities 10/10. Having access to the lakeside pool directly across from the waterfront rooms was wonderful! Staff are so friendly and despite Memorial Day the hotel was quiet, clean and comfortable. Thank you High Peak for a wonderful vacation!

Stayed in the building on the lake. This place is in desperate need of an update. Bathrooms had mildew in shower, missing grout on floor and an old toilet seat. When we arrived, we had to ask for someone to come down and clean the sliding doors and windows as they were filthy. I believe they need a new housekeeping supervisor as the entire facility needed a thorough clean. Also, no fresh coffee available. Nice to have access to water toys and great walking location but definitely overpriced and very disappointing. Will not be returning.
