We rented one of their condo's facing main street and slightly detached from the rest of hotel for my husband and I and our very active 2 and 5 year old kids. The room was very practical, laid out well, and clean. The staff was super helpful and inviting. The hotel itself has a lot to boast for families with... More

Stayed here for our 25th anniversary and had a wonderful stay. View of the lake was beautiful, staff was friendly and helpful. Parked the car and hardly used it since restaurants, shopping and lake all steps away. Loved that canoes, kayaks, paddle boards and paddle boats available for guests to use.

The Golden Arrow says they "only thing they overlook is the lake," and it's really true! They've thought of everything at the Golden Arrow and have provided a wonderful escape place for people of all ages. We recently watched the littles and the young teens playing on the beach and using watercraft of all kinds. And we "older generation" folks... More

This was the perfect Hotel for our first visit to Lake Placid. The staff was welcoming, the rooms were clean, and updated and We requested a lake view room and it's well worth it for the extra few $$ to halve a balcony overlooking the lake. The hotel has it's own little beach outside and much to our surprise --complimentary... More

The Golden Arrow is the total package for a Lake Placid getaway- the hotel is in the best location for enjoying breathtaking lake views and the best the town has to offer for dining. The rooms are not fancy but they are very comfortable, clean and "green". They have keurigs(bring pods and creamer if you are particular) and a small... More

We've been visiting Lake Placid for the last 10 years. With few exceptions, we always stay at the Golden Arrow hotel. We learned, in time, that specialty rooms are indeed wonderful, and worth every penny. The view from the rooms facing the lake is unbeatable. There is nothing better than waking up early in the morning and watching the sun... More

“The Only thing we Overlook is the Lake.” Surrender yourself to the untouched beauty of the Adirondack Mountains at the first resort in the United States to receive the Audubon’s Society highest Platinum Eco Rating for Hotels. It’s a place to renew yourself on the serene shores of Mirror Lake, and a place to thrill yourself, just moments from the famed Olympic Village at the heart of Lake Placid, New York. We are proud to offer Deluxe Accommodations as well as over 20 different kinds of suites and specialty rooms. All of our rooms are 100% smoke free, our lake front rooms above ground level have private balconies, and the ground level rooms have large glass doors leading out to a patio. Don’t forget your pup because we are a Pet Friendly resort. The Golden Arrow has an indoor pool, steam bath, two whirlpool hot tubs, and sauna. There is also a private white sand beach that is the perfect place to take in a magnificent panorama of the Adirondack Mountains. In the summer there are complimentary kayaks, canoes, and paddleboats available, we also have an authentic Italian Gondola that can be taken out for a minimal charge. In the winter you can ski, skate, and even take a dog sled ride on Mirror Lake right out our back door. ... more   less
