What others have to say

I  cannot say enough good things about this venue. Our entire experience from beginning to end was phenomenal. If I have to start somewhere, it’s gotta be with Alex. In the beginning stages of wedding planning, I was so stressed and didn’t know where to start. Once I met Alex and said yes to the venue, all my worries were gone. Myself, my (now) husband, and my family were all put at ease fast! I will forever be grateful to her and am happy to have gained a friendship from this experience. As this was a destination wedding, five hours from home, Alex was on top of everything and made it all so easy. The entire team at Golden Arrow including Brandon, Alex, and Natasha made our day truly special and the entire event went without a hitch! Everything was literally PERFECT. Our ceremony was outside with the Adirondack Mountains as our backdrop, the cocktail hour was held on top of the boathouse, and we had the reception inside the Generation Restaurant. The bridal suite is also so beautiful and we were lucky to have such a great space to get ready in! I am a huge foodie and I have to rave about the food. Everything was so yummy. Be sure to get the coconut shrimp for an hor d’oeuvre – I still cannot get over how delicious they were! Customer service truly says a lot about a business and this team deserves to be recognized. I will say it again, outstanding customer service and the staff is second to none. We will definitely be back!

When we first started getting in contact with venues in Lake Placid, I was a bit dismayed. That was until I spoke with Alex at the Golden Arrow. Not only was she friendly, organized, and communicative, but I could count on her to set expectations, follow through, and stay in touch throughout the process. Having a destination wedding, you want to work with someone you can trust, and Alex was by far the most trustworthy and reliable venue event coordinator we met. It was easy to set up times to visit and speak with her. She worked closely with us to make the wedding an event that was truly ours. She was up front with what could and couldn’t be done, and she was amazing to have the day-of to coordinate with our planner and make sure everything went well. Natasha, the reception coordinator, was also absolutely amazing to work with. She kept us informed and updated throughout the process, worked well with our timeline, was flexible when we moved things around, and was there the night of to ensure everything went according to plan. The hotel was gorgeous and clean, the ceremony was BEAUTIFUL overlooking the lake, the reception was perfect, and our guests just raved about the food. I am beyond thrilled that we got married at the Arrow, and would highly, highly recommend working with them! If you want folks who are communicative, friendly, and organized, you should absolutely get married here. Plus, the location was just amazing – right on the lake and right on the main street, so our guests could visit and enjoy the town easily. I can’t say enough good things about the Arrow, Alex, and Natasha. Get married here!!

We’ve been going to Lake Placid, and more specifically, the Golden Arrow for years. There is a reason (a million reasons actually) why we keep coming back. Our most recent visit was for our wedding and we were joined by family and friends from across the country. I didn’t hear a single complaint and I don’t have one myself. We were treated like gold, every minute was magical. All through the planning process both Alex and Natasha were so helpful and made me feel like even the silliest of questions wasn’t silly at all. They, and their entire team, made our wedding more than we ever could have dreamed it would be. The rooms were great, the food was out of this world and the atmosphere speaks for itself. All of us enjoyed the water activities, the beach and of course Generations. Again, not one complaint. We wanted to stay an extra day just to relax after all the chaos and Alex and Brandon made sure we got to stay in our same room. If you want a night away, a weekend or a week, the Golden Arrow is where you need to be. Planning a wedding? I have zero regrets and would do it here a million times over. I actually wish I could 🙂 Thank you to Alex, Natasha, Brandon and the entire GA staff for giving us the week of our dreams.

We were here as guests for a wedding. The attention to detail for the resort itself is outstanding. The wedding was also absolutely beautiful. If you are here with your family there are many amenities to keep you busy included in your stay. Lovely room on the street side was quiet as could be.

My wife and I were quests of the Golden Arrow Hotel to celebrate the marriage of my niece. We were warmly welcome and the staff was helpful and pleasant the entire weekend. The setting was stunning and the village added the perfect touch to a lovely weekend.

Stayed at the Golden Arrow in September for a wedding and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The views are incredible with a delightful walking trail around Mirror Lake. The staff was very friendly and helpful with suggestions. The hotel is centrally located in Lake Placid on the Main Street, but did not suffer from any noise/traffic problems. At risk of sounding boring, I ate at the Generations restaurant numerous times and was always served great food. (Don’t miss the German Pretzel….oh, my mouth is watering just thinking about it) . Check out their “History Wall” to learn how it all started. This is definitely a family owned & operated affair and they put their hearts into it.
