We stumbled upon the Golden Arrow Resort by chance. Looking to do a last minute weekend getaway somewhere in the Adirondack region, we browsed hundreds of websites. After hours of research we were about to give up when an ad for the Golden Arrow caught our eye and we ended up with a fantastic last minute deal for the weekend. When we arrived at the resort, I was stunned by how beautiful it was! From the outside it looked like a modern day luxury chalet. On the inside, we were greeted by warm wood paneling, an incredible view of Mirror Lake from the floor to ceiling window of the reception area, and a welcoming atmosphere. The rooms were clean, bright and beautiful. We spent a good hour just exploring the resort itself and marveling at the furnishings, the grounds, and most of all the beautiful lake and the resort's white sand beach. Our weekend was made perfect by walks through town, kayaking on the lake, morning coffee in the great room, and dining at Generations and the various restaurants around town. We ended the day with a relaxing hot soak in the jacuzzi followed by a good night's sleep after all that time spent in the refreshing moutain air - only to get up and do it all over again the next morning! Lake Placid and the Golden Arrow have made an indelible impression on our hearts and left such fond memories that we will remember our stay for years to come. There is no doubt that we will be back!
