What Our Guests Say

Jane and I had a wonderful visit to Lake Placid, our first in the springtime. We have been coming for over 45 years during the summer, fall and winter, but spring is just as beautiful. We have never stayed at the Golden Arrow. Why, I do not know. (We have eaten at Generations on several of our visits.) Your accommodations are outstanding – to sit on the balcony and see the sun rise over the mountains and the lake was spectacular. Thank you so much for sharing this experience with us and we look forward to returning. You have done an outstanding job in keeping this resort as a family run business all these years, in spite of all the competition from the nationwide chains that exist in the hospitality industry, today. Very admirable!

A dream
We can’t get over our stay at the Golden Arrow! We had a beautiful view of Mirror Lake from our room and a short walk downstairs took us out to the fire pit, beach and other amenities. We asked for the fire pit to be lit and within 2 minutes a staff member was lighting it! The grounds were well manicured and our room was perfect for our needs, especially the patio. It was an incredibly relaxing getaway to celebrate our anniversary. We can’t wait to come back in warmer weather to truly experience all of what the Golden Arrow has to offer!

Amazing place to stay!
We spent our University with my husband at Golden Arrow! The lake view room was amazing, the staff was friendly and made our special day unforgivable. The hotel offers free canoes, boats, and at night there is a fireplace on the lakefront.

Relaxing, friendly atmosphere
The suite gave us ample room with amenities that were nice. The pool and hot tubs were clean. The beach was nice, the water was a bit to cold for us this time of year but was still nice to sit and enjoy the water. We also the vast array of boats at our disposal. The hydobikes were fun.The firepit with the carved stone benches were a nice touch. The is in the middle of the village so walking is easy and being able to park and not have to find a parking spot sure is a plus. We are looking forward to our next visit.
