Third time staying at the Golden Arrow and they always meet our now high expectations. Go to LP for skiing which is not great due to Whiteface height and orientation so it ices up quickly but the Golden Arrow makes it a great experience. Stayed...More

We bought the romance package with our stay. Very disappointed in the romance package overall. We arrived late so we weren't able to eat dinner at the restaurant, used our vouchers for breakfast (super annoying experience). The "chocolates" were a handful of hershey kisses. Disappointment....More

Thank you for the 4-star review. We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the new romance package. You were the first couple to purchase the updated package, so the new vouchers might have confused the restaurant staff. We apologize for that. We...More

I don't work at the Golden Arrow but they are right on the main drag with several very good restaurants. Some of my favorites within walking distance are Smoke Signals (BBQ get the burnt ends!), Lake Placid Brewery (American), and the Greater Adirondack Steak and Seafood (American). If you are willing to drive there is also Lisa G's and Big Slide brewery.
As far as museums there is the Olympic museum. It's not a huge museum and may take you only a half hour to an hour to walk through. There are the Olympic sites that you can visit including the jumping complex, ice arena, outdoor oval (possible outside skating on the oval weather permitting), the bobsled and luge complex, as well as a gondola ride at Whiteface in the winter. I hope this helps.

I am the General Manager and my family owns the Golden Arrow. The readers above are all correct. We have an elevator that accesses all floors of the resort. However the "main floor" of the resort is the 3rd. The lobby and main entrance is on that level.
We have 25 different types of rooms at the Golden Arrow. From your description of King Lakeside Suite I can not determine which room type you actually reserved. Depending on the nature of your disability, there may be some rooms that are better suited for you than others.
Please call us at (800)582-5540 so we can make sure we get you into a room that will provide everything you require and ensure you have a wonderful experience in Lake Placid and at the Golden Arrow.
We look forward to hearing from you
