Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed at High Peaks Resort w/ my family to visit Paul Smith's College were my son will be attending. Our experience was outstanding, everyone is extremely friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable. The rooms were very clean, great amenities and good food. We definitely plan on staying there again in August when we move him in to his dorm.

The bathroom had a huge walk in shower, and a jetted bathtub. Room service was tasty, and delivered promptly. The staff was so nice,...

We stayed here with our two daughters for a few days in August 2016 in the resort property, set back a bit from the lake. The room was good size, the small balcony provided a view of the Mirror Lake and the pool below. The Lake front access was really nice, my kids love it. We took out kayaks, paddleboards,...

My 3 brothers and I gave our parents the only gift we could of for Christmas, a family weekend away with their 26yr-31yr old children and their first grandchild. None of the 8 of us had ever stayed in Lake Placid before so we read some reviews and chose the High Peaks Resort. Great choice! We are somewhat dysfunctional and...

We stayed at one of the waterfront rooms. Beautiful view!! Very comfortable stay and in walking distance to everything in town but off to the side so not crazy busy! The spa tub was fabulous and very comfortable bedding.

Have been staying at this Resort long before it was a resort. Our room was very nice. Asked for firmer bed pillows and had immediate response. Love the Dancing Bear and a big shoutout to our breakfast waitress who has been there for 30+ years. Will definitely stay here again.

We celebrated our anniversary in one of the Waterfront rooms. It was perfect with soaker tub and mountain view. The Hotel also has a mobile concierge service, so we could text to get the number for a cab or make request.

We made a last minute decision to visit Lake Placid to see hockey playoffs, and chose the High Peaks Resort because it was listed as pet-friendly. It was a great choice!
