Expert Review

This Main Street stunner was completely reborn in summer 2008, with a multi-million dollar makeover serving to transform it from a cookie-cutter Hilton-chain duck to a swank one-off resort swan. Situated conveniently on Lake Placid's main artery for wining, dining, and shopping, High Peaks offers 133 spacious guest rooms, each flaunting mountain or lake views; several feature private balconies or patios - some with direct access to Mirror Lake. Expect modern in-room touches like flat-screen TVs and an MP3 music dock/alarm clock; in-room fridge and coffee-maker; and bathrooms equipped with stone-tiled showers and Molton Brown bath products - the finest units also boast fireplaces and/or whirlpool tubs. The resort is additionally the site of an Aveda Spa, three pools (including one indoors), a fine-dining restaurant, a fireside cocktail lounge, and the popular après-ski casual pub-and-grub spot, The Dancing Bears.
