What Our Guests Say

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!

We stayed at this resort over the holiday break and loved it! We stayed in a deluxe suite with two queen beds and it was perfect for a family of four. The room had a fireplace and a very comfortable sofa ( might have been a pull out but we didn’t check). The last night we upgraded to the Panther Suite which was very spacious , two bedrooms and beautiful view of the lake. The resort is on Mirror lake and people were dogsledding and skating all day. It’s also central to downtown so we shopped quite a bit. The restaurant onsite was great and the food was delicious. Service was excellent!
