The hotel was very nice, could use a little updating but overall for a long romantic weekend with my bf...we had a really nice time. The view was beautiful. Most of the rooms overlooked the lake. It was a rainy/snowy weekend, so it could have been better and we missed the "peak foliage". we stayed halloween weekend. The help could...

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for a few day getaway after Thanksgiving. We found a great deal on Groupon and saw the good reviews so figured "why not?" and couldn't be happier we did. Parking and check in was a breeze. We were offered an upgrade to a lake view room for close to nothing per night...

Our room had a great view of Mirror Lake. We were there for a Hockey tournament. This hotel places you about a three minute walk from the Arena. Clean rooms and the pool area was nice. My kids loved it. Hotel bar/ restaurant food was good. I was actually surprised at how much flavor the buffet actually had. They could...

This place was amazing. We traveled upstate NY this spring and found the Golden Arrow online. We were winging it each night, not really knowing where we would land, so finding a special being offered at the Golden Arrow sounded like a good place to aim for. We loved it. We stayed for two nights. It is located right in...

I stayed 2 nights in the Windfall Kitchenette with my 2 grandchildren and their parents. Our place was clean and well-maintained with high quality fixtures and well equipped with all of the necessary pans & utensils. The furnishings were attractive and the beds were extremely comfortable. The additional single bed and TV in the small bedroom was sufficient for the...

We stayed here for a mini-honeymoon right after our wedding in the Gothics room. It was the perfect way to wind down and relax. It was great to be able to use the stand-up paddle boards and kayaks for free to go around Mirror Lake. This is one of the few resorts on the water, which was pretty much the...

The Golden Arrow is located on the lake side of the road that circles Mirror Lake. Our room had an unobstructed view of the lake on a cold crisp late autumn evening that ended with snowfall before heading to bed. We woke to a beautiful sunrise with natural light reflecting off the lake into our room. The room was large...

Always stay at Golden Arrow when in Lake Placid & try to use Groupon when available. Breakfast is included and there is happy hour all day at the bar for hotel guests. The only problem with this visit was the view from our room. It was on the lower level facing the street (that was under construction) and driveway to...

“The Only thing we Overlook is the Lake.” Surrender yourself to the untouched beauty of the Adirondack Mountains at the first resort in the United States to receive the Audubon’s Society highest Platinum Eco Rating for Hotels. It’s a place to renew yourself on the serene shores of Mirror Lake, and a place to thrill yourself, just moments from the famed Olympic Village at the heart of Lake Placid, New York. We are proud to offer Deluxe Accommodations as well as over 20 different kinds of suites and specialty rooms. All of our rooms are 100% smoke free, our lake front rooms above ground level have private balconies, and the ground level rooms have large glass doors leading out to a patio. Don’t forget your pup because we are a Pet Friendly resort. The Golden Arrow has an indoor pool, steam bath, two whirlpool hot tubs, and sauna. There is also a private white sand beach that is the perfect place to take in a magnificent panorama of the Adirondack Mountains. In the summer there are complimentary kayaks, canoes, and paddleboats available, we also have an authentic Italian Gondola that can be taken out for a minimal charge. In the winter you can ski, skate, and even take a dog sled ride on Mirror Lake right out our back door. ... more   less
