What our guests say...
What a wonderful stay we had at the Golden Arrow Lakeside Resort. From the moment we arrived with Victoria at the front desk we were greeted with the warmth of friendliness. Our room was lakeside with a cozy gas fireplace, beautiful patio deck and spacious accommodations inside. The few things we needed over our stay were brought to our room immediately and everything was done with COVID in mind. The pool has timed entry which was great as only a handful of guests can utilize it at a time. The resort itself sits on Mirror Lake with every winter outdoor activity right outside your door. Ice Skating, dog sledding and the toboggan run to list a few. But one of the nicest outdoor settings were all the gas fire pits and chairs and meeting Vinny who certainly had his work cut out for him as he moved the snow around each day. He was so nice and asked everyone if they needed anything as he worked the grounds. He was even fixing all the beautiful lights they set the property aglow and what we loved as it lit up the boathouse and front entrances and as we came back each night we would say...we are home! A wonderful getaway vacation indeed as the Golden Arrow Lakeside Resort and Lake Placid were both beautiful!

Stayed there with family and friends a few days ago. We had such a great time. The staff is awesome. Very friendly and accommodating (shout out to cousin Vinny! He was so nice and very helpful.) Even in the winter there is plenty to do. A few of us went ice skating right there on the frozen lake behind the hotel. They had toboggans which we didn't do, but looked fun. The dog sledding wasn't open, but they even had that there. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub though. Also the generations restaurant was great. Delicious food, nice atmosphere and great staff. We will definitely be returning! I can't wait to see how it is in the summer!

One of the best trips ever. Jamin at the front desk was the absolute best. Helped us with anything we needed. Hotel was clean, welcoming, and there was always something to do with the family. Look forward to coming next year!

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!
