High Peaks Resort, the Heart of Lake Placid
Our Natural Hospitality™ began with a simple bed and breakfast in Lake Placid in the 19th Century when F.D. Viall bought our property, added rooms to their home and began welcoming visitors to an inn called “The Homestead”. Twenty years later, In 1919, Thomas F. Roland migrated to Lake Placid from New York City and in 1922 after marrying his beautiful wife Margaret, bought The Homestead. From these humble beginnings, the Roland family's reputation for Natural Hospitality™ expanded till they became an anchor for the 1980 Winter Olympics – offering a world-class hotel and meeting facility as Lake Placid’s Hilton Resort, where every new Olympic champion celebrated their success at world-famous “Dancing Bears”.
High Peaks Resort is naturally based on a Century of Hospitality™. Today’s beautiful moss rock bathrooms echoes our storied history outside and within as a welcoming retreat focused on providing hospitality for you, your family and friends while enjoying a memorable stay.
Here, you can awaken to a dawn where the rose sky is mirrored from your personal waterfront deck on Mirror Lake, or look down from stories above the lake with your private balcony taking in both Nature’s beauty and Lake Placid’s historic Main Street. You chose how best to have fun finding yourself in nature while creating cherished life memories.
