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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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.
