Can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay in Lake Placid at the Golden Arrow. Check in was a breeze and there were plenty of luggage carts and parking available. (Not sure why other folks have made such a big fuss about either) Our room was on the third floor with a lakeside view. There were people skating...

Stephen P, Thank you for your fabulous review of the Golden Arrow. I loved reading about your favorite things in and around the resort. It’s great to know that you thought we had more than enough luggage carts, parking and maps. We realize that the layout of the resort can be complicated so we try very hard to uncomplicate it...

We loved our stay at this hotel. It was absolutely stunning. We had a balcony that overlooked Mirror Lake, and we loved taking the kayaks out in the morning for a peaceful, beautiful experience. Next time, we will bring our dog. Well worth the stay!!

We recently stayed at the Golden Arrow for a few days while skiing at Whiteface and it was better than we expected. The rooms were clean and comfortable. A refrigerator and microwave are always a plus. The indoor pool, hot tubs, sauna and steam room are great after a day of skiing. The pool area is a good size, with...

Lake Placid is one of our favorite locations. When in upstate NY we go out of our way to spend at least one night. The Golden Arrow is perfectly suited for a visit to Lake Placid. Most rooms face peaceful Mirror Lake, and the hotel is located in town so the town is easily visited on foot. The service is...

We had a wonderful stay. However, the rooms need to be updated - take out the carpets and get rid of the wall paper. Aside from that, beds were modern and comfy, service staff was excellent and food was very good.
