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!

Great location, wonderful hosts!

The beds for adults were a bit uncomfortable, but all things given - not a huge deal.

Karen’s place was great. Perfect location. Walk to all restaurants and shops on Main Street. We carried our paddle boards right from the house to mirror lake (about a 5 minute walk). Nice shared deck with the guide house that you can hang out on/grill out. Nice & clean place. Thanks Karen!

Great location—right in the heart of Lake Placid with easy access to Mirror Lake and every point of interest. The house had a well-stocked kitchen so that we could easily eat at home! Karen and her family were all very friendly and hospitable with a lot of knowledge about the area!
