High Peaks Basecamp Lodging: Downtown Location Perfect for Families and Groups!

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Nov 16, 2014
High Peaks Basecamp Lodging: 3 Houses with mountain views each sleeping 10-12

We are experts in helping people enjoy Lake Placid and all it has to offer as well as getting people outdoors in the Adirondacks! We have a great location—right in the heart of downtown in walking distance of Lake Placid Main Street shops and restaurants, the Olympic skating oval, and Mirror Lake. It is the perfect place for families, groups, and teams; book now for fun, events, exercise, adventure or training and feel like a local.

At High Peaks we have three houses total—the Basecamp Lodge, High Peaks Lodge, and Guide Lodge.

NOTE TO BIG GROUPS: We are able to house up to 34 people total between all three houses (with 10 bedrooms and 5 baths total)—great for larger groups and teams!

Our Guide House is a single story rental located on the second floor upstairs from our Guide Service with three bedrooms sleeping up to ten people. Each bedroom has two comfy bunk beds with double futons as the bottom bunks. The Guide House hosts a full kitchen, dinette, a large bathroom, and living room, all newly renovated with nice leather and wood furniture. Next door above our shop there is a large fitness and yoga studio with an additional full bathroom if needed for larger groups. The house also shares a large deck and BBQ grill with the High Peaks House next door with great views of the High Peaks mountains! Amenities include free Wifi, cable TV and DVD player, as well as a microwave.

Our High Peaks House is the largest of our three houses; with two stories, four bedrooms, and six bunk beds the High Peaks house sleeps up to twelve. Two of the bedrooms host one bunk bed with a full bottom bunk, while the third bedroom serves as the larger 'bunk room' with three bunk beds. The house has 1.5 baths, a large gear room, laundry facilities, and a large, comfortable kitchen, bar and living area. Outside the High Peaks House shares a large porch area and BBQ grill with our Guide House, with great views of the High Peaks mountains! Amenities include free Wifi, cable TV and DVD player, as well as a microwave.

Our Basecamp Lodge is our newest house, one story with three large bedrooms sleeping up to 12 people with three bunks in one room, two bunks in the second room and one bunk in the third bedroom. All three bedrooms are located off of the large living room and kitchen area hosting beautiful wood and leather furniture. The house has two full baths, a laundry room, large private deck with a BBQ grill, and great views of the High Peaks mountains! Amenities include free Wifi, cable TV and DVD player, as well as a microwave.

We also offer our wax room and bike storage for skiers and bikers, as well as free access to our fitness/yoga studio and rock climbing gym to our guests. Our outdoor retail store, High Peaks Cyclery, and guide service are located right on the property, with opportunities to rent gear (bikes, canoes and kayaks, skis and snowshoes), go on one of our guided trips, or find Adirondack travel information.

About the Owner

We fell in love with Lake Placid, the Olympics, ADK outdoors, and each other in 1980 and started our outdoor sport store, High Peaks Cyclery in 1982. Brian and Karen Delaney have been in the business of helping others enjoy the outdoors in the Adirondacks for over thirty years. They own and operate High Peaks Cyclery, a local bike, ski, and gear shop right in downtown Lake Placid. Karen and Brian also started High Peaks Mountain Guides, a fully licensed guide service taking clients on customized trips based on their outdoor pursuits and interests, from canoeing and hiking to rock and ice climbing, ski touring, and backcountry skiing. In 2010, Brian and Karen purchased and renovated three buildings surrounding their shop, High Peaks Cyclery, and started High Peaks Basecamp Lodging, where families, groups, and outdoorsmen and women come stay and play!

Adirondack elegance in an affordable bunk house!

  • 5 of 5
What a great find I came across while trying to lock down an affordable yet classy house in Lake Placid for our yearly couples Adirondacks retreat. The owners of this property are amazing, and personally welcomed us in to the 'bunk house'- I use the term loosely here because it easily could sleep about 10 people if you used all the bunks or if we wanted to bring the kids, but it was just me, my wife, and 2 of other couples. It worked out perfectly because each couple had their own sleeping quarters and the bottom beds fold out to a comfortable bed for two! The house was just renovated in the true Adirondack style with beautiful pine panels and flooring complete with similar furnishings and decorations - everything was clean and well kept and you can tell that the owners take great care in keeping it that way! One of the many bonuses to staying here is its proximity to town and all of the venues such as the Olympic arena, down town (it's right on Main Street - a little off the main hustle and bustle so it's not noisy, but with in a quarter mile to all of the cute shops and restaurants), Mirror Lake, Lake Placid, and a short drive, or bike if you want, to the mountains and trails. And one of the main selling points for me was that local pub is conveniently located just around the bend - offering one of the best micro brews I've ever had! The other great thing about staying here is that the owners are a wealth of information from where to go hike and bike, what to do on a rainy day, even where to eat...they own the gear and guide store next door, and can help you plan any adventure, and outfit you too! They took us rock climbing (a first for me - but tons of fun!) one day and paddling through some of the more remote lakes in the area another day - for a reasonable fee. We had a blast and can not wait to coma back - maybe in the winter this time!

Great find in downtown Lake Placid

  • 5 of 5
This is a a lovely vacation rental for a group or family. It is beautifully renovated in Adirondack decor and in a perfect location in town; close to great shopping and restaurants in downtown Lake Placid, as well as to head of town for skiing or hiking. The owners were very helpful and had many tips/ideas on what to do in town. They own a beautiful outdoor shop and guide service next door, so there is no limit to the activites you can do and see. We really enjoyed our stay here and would love to stay here again. It was very clean and comfortable and we had the option to bring our own linen ot use theirs to save on the costs. great deck outside to hangout or eat dinner. Wonderful and positive owners.

Amazing Location & Excellent Ammenities

Amazing Location & Excellent Ammenities
  • 5 of 5
With the help of the Delaney's (property owners) and the ever so trusty staff at High Peaks Cyclery (located just next door) we have found a place that we will come back to year after year! We stayed here two times, but most recently my wife and I came here over Labor Day for some 'adventure trips' during the day and fine dining at night. This place has everything we were looking for, and more! The staff at High Peaks helped map out our hiking route one day, and our road riding excursion the next - they even told us the best 'local' places to go after the hike, and the good 'pit stops' for our bike. It was also great because we could get any last minute hiking and biking needs from the store (energy bars, water bottles, first aid kits, spare bike tubes....you name it, they had it)! After the long days out exploring we relaxed and showered in the comforts of our rental and even sprawled out on the amazing back porch lounging in Adirondack Chairs with a bottle of vino! As if that wasn't enough, we were easily able to walk to all of Lake Placid's great dining and night life which means we can easily have a drink(or more)and walk on home since the main down town is less than 1/2 mile away! And as and FYI, the Lake Placid Bub and Brewery (with their famous Ubu Ale) is literally a few hundred yards away, right across from the Public Beach and tennis courts (but no need to worry we slept soundly and could never hear any noise from others). And one more fine point about his steal of a location (and price!) is that if you come for the Ironman, like we did the year before, the swim start is right at the Public Beach and the house is right on the bike and run course, and the finish area at the Oval is right up the hill; great for cheering and encouraging the thousands of racers! In one work this house is AWESOME!
