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

There isn't necessarily an age restriction for the dog sled rides, The ride goes slowly on a track on the frozen lake. Small children are best accompanied by an adult. We don't have skate rentals at the resort, but there is a place right at the top of our drive way where you can rent skates!
