Disappointed
Reviewed 1 week ago

I stayed at the Lake House last year (around the same time – end of November) and enjoyed it so much I was dying to go back a second time. Unfortunately, this time around the experience wasn’t as nice. We arrived late on Friday night and there was no personnel – ok, fine, I remember this from last year too – a sign on the door said to head over to the High Peaks resort across the street during “afterhours”. The problem is that there was no personnel attending to the Lake House for the remainder of our stay, not just during “afterhours”. The lobby was an absolute mess: games scattered everywhere, food wrappers on the floor, empty beer bottles and pizza boxes hanging around and coffee station left unkept. It was Thanksgiving weekend, so we expected to see lots of families and kids. However, without personnel, the hotel became just one big playground; with kids running up and down our hallway, and people talking loudly in the lobby until late at night. It was impossible to fall asleep.

The hotel lacked in terms of cleanliness also. There was a dried blood stain on our sheets and an orange stain on our towels (I’d rather not know). For the price, I expected a lot more.

Bottom line? If you are looking for a relaxing stay and good value for your money, I would suggest going elsewhere.

Pros:
-Nice, retro and cozy decor
-Well situated
-Pet friendly
-Eric, at the High Peaks resort front desk, is super sweet

Cons:
-Lack of personnel
-Dirty
-Noisy

The Lake House offers a cozy and well located place to spend your vacation. We loved it. Close to Lake Placid, with gorgeous views of Mirror Lake, immaculate and stylish. We highly recommend it!!! Only drawback was that the bar in the lobby wasn’t open when we stayed and you had to go across the street to another hotel. Other than that an excellent deal.

Very good, but not excellent

When we checked into Lake House, the place was deserted with only a notice to greet us, telling us to check into the High Peaks Resort over the road. Although this was disappointing, the service and welcome at the desk was brilliant and apologies were made for the lack off staff and a closed bar (also disappointing) at Lake House. We were offered a room at High Peaks, but preferred Lake House. It was fine, but had more of a motel feel than a hotel, and of course because it was quiet and no-one at the bar or reception, it did remind me a bit of The Overlook in The Shining. That said, the rooms were clean and well proportioned - they all look over Mirror Lake which is beautiful and there was a pool, hot tub, canoes/kayaks and games area to make use of free of charge. Maybe it would have been livelier in high season?

Fabulous Wedding Weekend

My family and friends stayed at Lake House for the weekend of my son's wedding at his home outside of Lake Placid. It was the perfect hotel for the group, seemed so intimate. We enjoyed the ambiance, the lake, the views, the pools, the gym, the kayaks and paddle boards and the proximity to town. The staff was wonderful and it was a memorable weekend for all!

Amazing Mini-Moon Experience!

We decided to take a short trip to Lake Placid immediately following our wedding in August and we are so happy to have spent that time at the Lake House. The property is amazing, and the staff was even better. Jordan, the staff person who checked us in, saw that we had some gifts when we walked in and asked if we were in town for a wedding. We said we actually were coming from ours and we had a good laugh. Little did we know, he ended up setting up a bottle of champagne in our room and the sweetest note welcoming us. I cried - I thought that kind of stuff only happened in movies.

We loved our room, but honestly probably spent more time hanging out on the lawn playing games, relaxing by the firepit, dining in the massive lounge area, and enjoying complimentary coffee on the deck. We also enjoyed the lake access and borrowed a couple kayaks.

We can't wait to visit again - this truly was one of the best trips we've ever taken and certainly our new favorite hotel.
