Had stayed here before and loved it. This time booked a suite, ECHO room, thought it would be a good way to end our honeymoon after Key West but I was wrong. The room was great but the location was terrible for a suite. First it is right next to the elevator, the ice machine, and the vending machine so... More

We travel to the Adirondacks quite often. Usually if we do a hotel, rather than camping, we try to keep the price to under $150 a night. We paid about $225 for our lake front room for a night and were not disappointed. The private beach is perfect for trying out paddle boards, kayaks, and paddle boats. Tired of the... More

Ok Truthtastics here's the highs & lows of this resort, built I'm guessing for the Winter Olympics way back and it has been modernized with on going updates by the owners.

The resort is located at the end of the Main Street which is nice and easy to walk to the shops/restaurants. The location on the lake is beautiful especially with the white limestone sand. (we did notice some other resorts had to be bused to a beach so the beach right at the resort was convenient.) There are floating docks... More

Dear bearyb, Thank you very much for your wonderful review of the Golden Arrow. I’m glad you enjoyed the convenience of our private beach and also the amenities it has to offer. Taking the row boat to the band shell for music in the park is a great idea. It’s personally one of my favorite things to do in the... More

Lodge-style hotel, very close to the waterfront. The room was clean and comfortable and had a nice view of the lake. Breakfast was not included in the room price but the price was reasonable and it was very tasty.

Last year stayed at High Peaks - this year Golden Arrow. Pros and cons to both but next year likely to go back to Golden Arrow. Recall though that my review of High Peaks is one year old so I cannot say what has changed there. 1) Golden Arrow has a beach. Sounds silly but traditional chaise lounges surround the... More

Rapctny, It’s wonderful to hear that you will return to the Golden Arrow for your next trip to Lake Placid. I agree that our beach, complete with Stand-up Paddle Boards is really the best in town. Between the convenience and beauty of our location, it is truly unbeatable. It is also a great place to watch the Fourth of July... More

Our son got married, since we are not from the area, our entire family stayed here. We were amazed at all the extra stuff that was done to make the family feel welcomed. And also they made the bride n groom feel very special. Would do anything to make our stay an experience to remember. We would return.

Love this place. We have stayed here three times. Beautiful location, right on Mirror Lake. All of the amenities and none of the pretentiousness of other resorts. Casual, laid-back, soothing, revitalizing vibe. Get a room with a lakeside view and just chill. Generations Restaurant is ok, fairly standard hotel food, but a great view too!

From the very first personal contact at check-in throughout the stay and especially at checkout, the staff were upbeat, warm and friendly, like long lost cousins. We had a spacious and charmingly decorated double queen bed room, with a large super clean bathroom, overlooking the lake (worth the extra $, esp. the balcony), and absolutely loved the location on the...
