The staff is very friendly. The beds are very comfortable and supportive. The towels and bedding are high quality. They supply a nice size room refrigerator and Keurig coffee maker. They even supply real ceramic coffee mugs instead of paper or foam. They supplied regular, decaf and tea Keurig cups. The view from the lake view rooms is truly special....

We love Lake Placid and had our wedding at the Golden Arrow. It was perfect to have our friends and family right in town and to have the lake right there.

We had a balcony that overlooked Mirror Lake. The rooms were clean and the beds were very comfortable,staff was very friendly. Location is right in the middle of town, so you can park your car at the hotel and walk anywhere in town.

We stayed at Golden Arrow Lakeside Resort for a family wedding in May. The hotel sits right on Mirror Lake so we could gaze at the lake right outside our window and see the mountains in the distance...beautiful and peaceful.

It's nice when you feel like you get more than you expected. This is exactly how I felt about the service we received from the staff and the property itself.

The Golden Arrow is on Mirror Lake at Lake Placid (NY). The rooms are spacious and nicely furnished. Definitely pay a little more for a room overlooking the lake. The views of Mirror Lake and the Adirondack Mountains are gorgeous. You can see Whiteface Mountain from the hotel.

“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.
