"Lake House celebrates the region's beauty and history, while providing a perfect place to relax, enjoy a cup of coffee, a microbrew from the lobby bar, or a good book in the company of others," said Matthew Wheeler, General Manager, Lake House.

After an extensive multi-million dollar refurbishment, the former Lakeview Motor Inn of the upscale and beautifully-designed High Peaks Resort on Mirror Lake has transformed into the new 44-room Lake House . With a new take on the classic motor lodge of the 1960s, Lake House will delight guests, family and friends. Newly renovated with a modern, yet rustic aesthetic, Lake House retains its authentic Adirondack feel while delivering the modern amenities expected by travelers today. Visitors will enjoy newly renovated rooms complete with modern amenities and access to all the recreational activities offered in the world famous Lake Placid region. The Lake House celebrates the area’s character and takes full advantage of dramatic sweeping vistas along with its desirable location overlooking Mirror Lake, in the heart of Lake Placid’s shopping, entertainment and dining district -- to provide an outstanding mountain getaway experience.

Guests are greeted by an open lobby, reminiscent of a 1960s ski chalet, with spectacular views of Mirror Lake and the surrounding mountains. The double-sided fireplace adds warmth to the lobby and adjacent lounge.

Along with its unique combination of location and mountain views, all Lake House guestrooms have a balcony or patio, waterfront access, and use of all amenities including the 24-hour fitness center and business center at sister property High Peaks Resort across the street. Guestrooms are appointed with modern Adirondack décor and brightly colored fabrics, superior quality bedding and linens, oversized work desks, refrigerators, flat screen televisions, movies and video games.

“Lake House celebrates the region’s beauty and history, while providing a perfect place to relax, enjoy a cup of coffee, a microbrew from the lobby bar, or a good book in the company of others,” said Matthew Wheeler, General Manager. “With its transformation, Lake House has a decidedly retro yet still contemporary and casual style, with beautiful accommodations, complemented by a commitment to preserve the integrity of our natural surroundings.”

Originally built in 1961 as Leahy’s Lakeside Inn, the hotel evolved in 1979 as the Lakeview Motor Inn. Today, the Lake House and its expansive lobby overlooks Mirror Lake, delivering a classic Adirondack experience and a modern mountain vacation retreat. Guests can enjoy a drink at the Lake House bar, a snack before dinner, a swim in the indoor pool, or a retreat from the day in the hot tub. Lake House guests can also enjoy the amenities of High Peaks Resort including 2 outdoor pools, free kayaks, rowboats, paddleboats, fitness center and on-site spa and salon. The Lake House hosts, Lauren and Nicole, can also arrange guided fishing trips, boating, golf, snowmobile, ski outings and more.
