What our guests say...
This was one of the last spots to get around 4th of July, so we went for it. And I’m so happy we did! The cleanliness of room 435 (lakefront) was pristine, towels were super crispy, amazing amenities (shampoo/conditioner/lotion), modern phones, Keurig coffee machines, great coffee, fridge/freezer in room, beautiful balcony and the most breathtaking views of the lake! The resort has its private beach, and it’s amazing as it’s better than the public beach nearby. Free use of kayaks, canoe, boat and SUPs along with beach towels was the utmost superb perk for the water activities. As we brought our own wine, of course, we forgot corkscrew. And guess what? The front desk gave us their branded corkscrew! Not one hotel in the past had them (Hilton, Marriott etc.), but they did! THANK YOU! You have been the best! We want to come back soon!

We had such an amazing stay. It was so clean which was important to us with COVID. The staff was also so warm and welcoming from the moment we arrived. We cannot wait to come back!
We just returned from a getaway at the Golden Arrow Resort. It was a wonderful experience! What a beautiful property and a great location! Our room was very comfortable and we appreciated having the refrigerator and the microwave. A baggie of treats for our dog during checkout was such a thoughtful touch. Our stay was memorable and we look forward to coming back soon!

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!
