Great experience at the Golden Arrow. The staff is friendly and attentive, the room was cozy and clean, the bed and pillows comfy. The facilities: pool, sauna, steam room are great after a day on skiing. Overall a magical place to visit, already planning my return1

We booked rooms here during our son's hockey tournament. The room was nice, the hotel was convenient with plenty of parking and a pool. Great view of the lake and an easy walk to town. I was impressed with the ownership after the power-outage we experienced. They made a nice effort to connect with us and offered us an incentive...

$90 a night for a nice room and breakfast for two. There's a nice selection that you get to choose from right off the menu. There's also a pool and hot tub. This Resort is located in the middle of the village.

Perfect place for a memorable Lake Placid weekend. Splurge on a Marcy Suite 5th floor overlooking the lake with fireplace. The staff from the front desk , housekeeping and maintenance were so friendly. We used the steam room, sauna , pool and hot tubs which were awesome. Ask for a B&B rate because the breakfasts at Generations are awesome !

Perfect for a romantic weekend winter getaway! We reserved a specialty room with a fireplace and overlooking frozen Mirror Lake. The room was deliciously comfortable and staff very friendly at this family owned resort! Great location in town and walking distance to many fabulous restaurants. Though not run by the hotel, sled dog rides are available right there. For $10/person......

Our first trip to Lake Placid was well worth the drive! The Golden arrow was wonderful and everyone on staff was very friendly. We will definitely be back again next year. Highlights were ice-skating on mirror Lake, visiting the Olympic venues and of course skiing at Whiteface.

We used the microwave, coffee machine and refrigerator but had to find our flatware. Our room overlooked the frozen lake for a very pretty view. The location is ideal in Lake Placid to go right downtown or left to the Olympic center.
