LAKE PLACID, NY—After an extensive multimillion-dollar refurbishment, the former Lakeview Motor Inn at High Peaks Resort on Mirror Lake here has been transformed into the new 44-room Lake House.
With a take on the classic motor lodge of the 1960s, Lake House, owned and operated by New York-based AWH Partners, LLC, features newly renovated rooms with a modern, yet rustic aesthetic, and authentic Adirondacks feel.
Guests are greeted by an open lobby, reminiscent of a 1960s ski chalet, with views of Mirror Lake and the surrounding mountains. A double-sided fireplace adds ambiance to the lobby and adjacent lounge.
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 Adirondacks' décor, oversize 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,” stated General Manager Matthew Wheeler. "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.

When you hear all the lodging industry projections for the months and years to come, much of the robust growth is forecast to be the result of the expected influx of travelers from China. In what could only be seen as good news for the industry, that expectation moved a little closer to reality when President Obama signed a visa waiver extension for Chinese travelers earlier this month.
