This hotel has a great location and a really nice staff (particularly Rachel at the lake and a nice young woman at the front desk that gave me directions to the Golf course). Rooms are clean and have everything you need. Nice big bathroom. A tiny bit dated but great views of Mirror Lake and you can walk to all...

We needed a hotel that we could bring our dog to so I assumed this hotel would not be that nice because it's been around for a long time and they accept dogs in certain rooms. I was extremely surprised at how nice the hotel is. The rooms are updated and very clean. The location is great, right on Mirror...

We stayed at the Golden Arrow Lakeside Resort for two nights over a weekend in June 2015. We reserved the Windfall Room, on the basis of needing a second bedroom. Overall, the suite was nice & clean, with a beautiful view of the lake. The kitchenette was well-stocked and cozy. One note: the second bedroom is very, very small. Had...

we were on the 2nd floor with a balcony overlooking Mirror Lake. We were steps away from the lake, making it very easy to swim in the morning. The room was a good size, the beds comfortable, the room was clean. The team working at Golden Arrow were all very nice and helpful. I would go there again.

The check in hassle free...quick & easy. We were escorted to our room! And a lovely room it was. We always choose a 1st floor room on the water as we like being where we can see the birds & hear them. Rooms are always immaculate. We were only able to stay one night :( but we'll return again soon.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
“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
