We were delayed a day by a blizzard and no road travel the day we were to leave for Placid. Hannah worked with me through a couple of phone calls getting us accommodated for a new arrival date and departure. The hotel is very nice, rooms clean. We have been using them for years and visit lake Placid often. We...

It was so good to see you, Sean & Jacqueline. I can't believe it has already been nine visits. How time flies! We always look forward to your arrival and dread your departure - just the way it should be. If we have a special resort it is because our guests are special, so thank you! We can't wait to...

Our stay at High Peaks this past weekend could not have been better! The very friendly staff accommodated us with our sick child in a very timely manner, having both a crib and "Pack 'n Play" set up in the room upon check-in. The room was immaculate, beautifully appointed, had a very spacious shower, and the view was wonderful. All...

The rooms were absolutely amazing. Very luxurious and clean. They exceeded my expectations in all respects. The most memorable experiences I had were with the staff. We brought a dog with us on our trip. Before we arrived, they had a bed, food and water bowl laid out. We planned to ski on Sunday and realized that due to the...

Stayed 1 night at the High Peaks while in town to watch a hockey game, and I really enjoyed my stay. High Peaks is right on the main street in Lake Placid Village- perfect location. The village has a lot of great restaurants and good shopping too and very convenient for activities in or around Lake Placid. The hotel is...

The High Peaks Resort is a convenient spot in the heart of Lake Placid. Check in staff is exceptional. Complimentary champagne, cookies and hot chocolate are all nice, welcoming touches. Views from the waterfront rooms are stunning and the shower is to die for. I suggest body lotion be provided as well as an extra blanket.

I'm writing as a repeat visitor to High Peaks Resort. I must say it is top notch in terms of hospitality staff. I go here to work on my writing and to spend time with family skiing. First, I love the friendly yet professional staff and cozy atmosphere. But I think the friendly staff makes up for a few shortcomings...

Dear Howie-Joshua, Thank you for joining us for Winter Storm Stella and throughout the year! It certainly has been a snow storm to remember. Luckily, with a fall of 41” there is still lots of snow to remind us! Because we are very used to lots of snow and our public works department is typically prepared for every eventuality, we,...

Booked a room with my wife to visit friends celebrating a birthday and planned to stay for 3 nights. Upon arrival the front desk clerk, Eric, welcomed us, could not have been more friendly or accommodating and (probably because this is slow season for LP) upgraded our room. We were offered a welcome glass of champagne once we got settled...

The rooms are clean and spacious. The beds are comfortable and the linens are soft and luxurious. The bathrooms are just gorgeous. Stand up shower with rainfall shower head as well as a hand held. Soaker tub. All very clean. Would definitely stay again.

The High Peaks Resort strives to give the highest quality service to its guests. There are so many little things that make a stay memorable and enjoyable. From the champagne at check in, to the chess boards in the hallway, to the cookie jar!
