I came to this resort during off season for a quiet mountain/lakeside weekend. The front desk staff were attentive, welcoming, and helpful. The accommodations were beautiful; big windows gazing onto the picturesque lake and mountains, incredible restaurant (see separate review) with full menu complimentary breakfast, pool, gym, and shopping. I never had to leave the hotel, as it connected to...

Dear 99constantinop, Thank you for your fantastic review of the Golden Arrow. I love your description of Mirror Lake in different seasons. I believe that such easy access to the lake is one of the best things about the resort. It’s so fun to be able to swim in and skate on the same lake just a few months a...

Great hotel in a perfect section of town. Very convenient to the rink and stores. The rooms are clean and spacious with great views of the lake. I recommend it..the bar was nice but they stop serving food at 9 which was not good.

Traveling to Lake Placid mainly for the ECAC hockey tournament, the location of this hotel to Herb Brooks Arena was great. There are parking garages on premises for hotel guests (parking in town can be tough). All of the restaurants, attractions, and shops on Main Street are in walking distance. Lake view rooms are worth it.
