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.
