Share Article

The new Lake House at High Peaks Resort Invites Guests to view "Fall Foliage Your Way" and enjoy the seasonal Adirondack Fall Festivals too.

Colorful fall foliage surrounds Mirror Lake in Lake Placid, NY

'I recommend visiting Lake Placid and the Adirondacks in mid-September, when the colors are brilliant, the sun is strong and the crowds are few,' says Matthew Wheeler, general manager, Lake House at High Peaks Resort.

Autumn colors surround visitors to the Adirondacks and Lake Placid as do the many ways Lake House guests can see and experience them.

From the air: guests take a scenic airplane ride above the majestic Adirondack Mountain and capture their fall beauty on a grand scale. From the water: visitors grab a complimentary kayak, rowboat or paddle boat from the resort and glide along Mirror Lake’s placid waters while experiencing the beauty of fall colors up close. From the road: one can drive up the Veteran’s Memorial Highway to the top of Whiteface Mountain to be surrounded by the magnificence of fall color for miles around. If it’s a clear day, one might even see the Mount Royal in Montreal! OR guests can take a ride on the Cloudsplitter Gondola to the top of Little Whiteface or take the elevator to the top of the 120 meter ski jumps.

And with the annual traditions of Lake Placid’s Oktoberfest, “Flaming Leaves Festival,” and the flavors of craft beers from around the country during Brewfest, a stay at Lake House offers unique and memorable guest experiences and the comforts of a stylishly renovated hotel amidst the pristine lakes and mountains of beautiful Lake Placid.

Lake House offers “Fall Foliage Your Way” packages for the leaf-peeping enthusiast to enjoy their preferred adventure for the season.

“There is no better way to spend a few days than a visit to Lake Placid during peak foliage season, and with all of these different ways to see it, it becomes a one-of-a-kind experience that cannot be had anywhere else,” shares Matthew Wheeler, general manager, Lake House at High Peaks Resort. “ A recommended time for travelers to escape to the Adirondacks is mid-September, when the colors are brilliant, the sun is strong and the crowds are few.”

“Our Lake House hosts will ensure that you enjoy your stay, and they can help you experience our beautiful foliage the way you want. With the Mountains of the High Peaks and Mirror Lake at our doorstep, your experience can be as adventurous or relaxing as you’d like.”
For travelers who want to combine their leaf peeping with celebrations and festivals, there are several dates to note:
