What our guests say...
Everything about our stay was excellent. The check in was very easy and the staff were very friendly. Our room was immaculate! We had a Kuerig coffee maker and real coffee cups (not styrafoam) which was very appreciated. We went to the front desk and they gave us more coffee pods, no problem. Our bed was very comfy and even though we didn't have a view from our room, the lobby has a beautiful fireplace and couches that overlook Mirror Lake. We went to the hotel's restaurant, Generations for dinner and breakfast, both were good with friendly service. We definitely will stay here again.

Love this place! So convenient. Very, very clean! The staff was exceptionally friendly. The lobby was decorated with autumn decorations and the view to Mirror Lake was gorgeous. Parking is so convenient. Golden Arrow is very convenient as it’s obvious owners are caring and engaged.

We had a wonderful stay at Golden Arrow! We appreciated all of the COVID precautions and felt very safe during our stay. The fire pit was perfect for a relaxing evening as well. Thank you for everything. Will be back again!

Lake Placid, NY

Lake Placid is where vacation begins – literally. The word vacation originated in Lake Placid in the 1800s when the nation’s social elite would “vacate” the stifling summer heat for the cool Adirondack air.

Lake Placid is still a popular vacation destination for those looking for outdoor adventure; whether it’s hiking, kayaking, leaf peeping, or skiing, there’s something for everyone!
