“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.

Is there any smoking area's on site?
We are a 100% smoke free facility. If you want to smoke we ask that you are at least 50 feet away from the building. Most people who want to smoke go up to the sidewalk in front of the hotel.

I don't know the answer to that. It was a very short drive for us.

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.

Hello Tamalecks, 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 Sincerely Jenn Holderied

Hi Melissa, 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! Thanks!
