My family (2 adults and 2 boys ages 6 and 9) enjoyed our Columbus Day (Indigenous Peoples' Day!) weekend at the Lake House. The highlight of the hotel is the gorgeous common area, which is just as beautiful and cozy as it looks on the website. I don't know that I have ever been to a hotel with a great...

A really lovely hotel with spacious rooms and a balcony overlooking the lake. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We only stayed one night as we were on a road trip but would definitely have stayed longer if we had had more time. A really lovely surprise was a complimentary breakfast given to us by the management at The Dancing...

We loved the Lake House! We stayed here due to its location, good price, and the fact that they were dog friendly. If you are bringing your dog, this is really an accommodating spot. but overall, the employees were beyond friendly and welcoming, and really got to know us. It was simple but cozy and right on Mirror Lake and...

We stayed here for a ADK 46'r party and the location was absolutely perfect. We stayed on the second floor and our view of the water was breath taking!

Stayed here for a weekend anniversary getaway. The location was great! We stayed in a second floor room with a view of the water, parking was basically just outside our door.

I stayed here in July after staying elsewhere in town earlier in the month. This was a much better choice at about 40% of the cost. I had a view and small balcony that over looked the lake. The lobby is simple and invites people to hang out and gather in the great room. Staff was gracious and helpful. Breakfast...

The Lake house had some pluses and minuses. First, it has been updated and the rooms looked good. The rooms had this retro vibe and nice color scheme.
