We've stayed in lake placid many times (working towards our 46er badges) and I can't believe I've never booked this place before. It is subtle from the outside but let me tell you something, these folks know how to run a hotel. They are so welcoming, I felt like I was arriving at an old friend's house. And going up to our apartment was reminiscent of some of the beautiful old places we stayed in Paris or old Montreal.
The apartment itself was perfect. Big comfy bed, luxurious down duvet, high ceilings, old hard wood floors, many tall windows with a beautiful view of the lake, fully equipped kitchen, aveda soap and shampoo. I loved it! I don't see how anyone can give less than 5 stars. The place is right on Main Street so you do hear a little street noise but come on, this is lake placid not NYC, most people are tucked in by 11:00, so really not disruptive. And yeah the parking is a 2 minute walk away, but I would walk 10 times that to stay at this place.
Thank you Haus owners for offering such wonderful accommodations.

This is definitely not your average B&B! We stayed for 2 nights in Suite 7 with a private back porch/balcony right on the lake. The suites are beautifully designed and furnished with a contemporary, funky feel. Our king bed was supremely comfortable and the linens were super smooth and soft. The entire suite was sparkling clean. The kitchen is completely stocked and would be well suited for long stays. Victoria checked us in and recommended Caffe Rustica for supper; a wonderful small Italian restaurant. She is a great ambassador for the property. While we saw some other guests, our suite was very quiet. Yes, you may have to park a block down the street, and sure, there are stairs, but the location is so worth it. We would absolutely return for our next trip to Lake Placid.

Room Tip: Lake views are spectacular

Took our 4-day, 3-night honeymoon to The Haus on Mirror Lake. Staff was very accommodating, condo was beautiful and check in/out was a breeze. It was a nice, clean apartment with a spectacular waterfront view. Very high praise and recommendations!

We stayed at this facility for 3 nights recently. The place is very noisy. It is right on main Street. The staff must be called on the phone as the office is only open a few hours in the afternoon for check in.
Parking is not available on the premises but several blocks away.
No food on premises.
TV consists of 5 stations and the internet is poor at best.
Expensive for what you get.
The beds are European sized and smaller than US queen size. Slightly larger than a full size.
There are better choices around.

Hallo,
Thank you for your review. I am very sorry you didn't care for us. We are not a conventional hotel, more a gasthaus. We can best convey what we are and aren't on OUR site. Please permit me to respond to your issues:

Yes we are on Main Street - not a resort in the woods, so like any city hotel, we provide earplugs with our complimentary toiletries. One can always book a much quieter lake front room. As we are on the "quiet end" of Main Street, blocks away from the bars and night club, most of the noise on the street happens in the morning.

With a total staff including myself we are but 3-4 souls; indeed too small to have one of us sit around Front Desk 24/7. In daytime, I assure you we are scurrying about the building, just hard to find. We love what we do and can always be reached by phone.

At check-in guests are provided a Municipal parking permit. The closest lot and two permit only sections are 1/2 a block away, (perk: the permit is valid throughout the village too). In Summer one can also park on the street. It is not difficult, as something ALWAYS opens up by the 2nd pass.

There is food on premises. There's a great, lake front pizzeria in the building, a german bakery, craft brewery, and steak house directly across the street. 2 doors down is the best breakfast in town. 8 doors is a gourmet seafood restaurant, and within 2 blocks 20 other restaurants, cafes, sweet shops, Chinese take out and a few ice cream pallors.

Mea culpa on the TV selection. With the takeover of Time Warner by Spectrum, no one will offer us a hotel package so I bought all new WiFi gear, upper the broadband speed to 50Mbps which is usually awesome but our infrastructure is unstable when the town is in high season. This is why it is free. I have considered throttling it for a user fee like most hotels so you can stream movies. What do you think?

I have no idea what you mean about European sized beds. We have American made Queen and King beds.

Dear reader I hope you will take the time to look at some of our other reviews before deciding about us. And in general book with any site you like but please do your homework. Small establishments are by nature, different.

Many thanks, travel well!

Our room had the best balcony and view and that's where we spent a lot of time.
This was the place to be for morning coffee and evening drinks. The extra bonus was a summer concert in the park on the water, right next door. Loved it!
The suite was clean, roomy, nicely decorated and comfortable. The other key to our stay was the location. Being in the middle of Main Street was so convenient. Tony and his staff were so friendly and ready to do what it takes to please us. I hope we can make it back sooner than later. Great job, Haus Team!
