What our guests say
"Just back from golden arrow, had a great time, resort is clean and located perfectly in the town, can basically leave car and walk to shops and restaurants. Staff at front desk are all willing to help you in anyway possible. Restaurant upstairs was great for early breakfast. Highly recommend."
"We have just returned from a beautiful two-night stay at this property, and it was truly a memorable experience. From check-in to our departure, the front desk and cleaning staff were beyond friendly, helpful, and genuinely interested in ensuring that we enjoyed our stay. The location couldn't be more perfect in the downtown, rendering all of the Main Street of Lake Placid within a very comfortable walking distance. The property is clearly making investments in upgrading itself, and it shows. Our Haystack Suite was full of small, thoughtful touches, ranging from a heated towel rack near our in-room jacuzzi, through to an impressive suite of sustainable and environmentally-friendly initiatives. In summation, we would not hesitate for a moment to book here again, and truly look forward to doing so in future. Many thanks to the team at Golden Arrow for your wonderful hospitality!"

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!
