Beautiful in a winter or summer setting, the Golden Arrow Lakeside Resort in the heart of Lake Placid boasts the best location in town. We are directly on the shores of Mirror Lake and in the heart of the Olympic Village which puts everything from shopping to skating literally right outside your door. Snuggled under furs on the dogsled or basking in the sun, surrender yourself to the beauty of the Adirondack Mountains.
The Golden Arrow Lakeside Resort is proud to be Lake Placid's Green Hotel. We are proud of the great steps we have taken to operate as a sustainable resort. We are the only resort in the United States of America to have received the Audubon Societies 5 Green Leaf Eco Rating for Hotels.
We are proud to announce the grand unveiling of our Green Roof! The green roof, installed June of 2008 has been a great success! We have enjoyed watching it bloom & grow over the summer months!
Our new restaurant, “Generations” is now open for breakfast,lunch and dinner. In keeping with the sustainable philosophy of the resort, the menus feature many foods that are grown and raised locally. Generations is currently being evaluated by the Green Restaurant Association to further assist us in learning how to operate a sustainable restaurant. The dining room is decorated with warm colors, wood accents, a bamboo wood floor, a stone fireplace and features artwork & photography from local artists. In the summer months, the outside deck of Generations showcases expansive views of the Golden Arrow’s Green Roof. In addition to providing fresh herbs for the restaurant, it grants a beautiful ecological backdrop and views of Mirror Lake, Whiteface Mountain and the High Peaks.
Our goal for the menu is to keep it as local and fresh as possible. Living in the Adirondacks provides extensive offerings in each season. Keeping it local allows us to showcase the many wonderful farms and products that are grown, raised and cultivated in New York’s Adirondack region. As a resort we work hard every day to operate as sustainably as possible. Doing the same thing at the restaurant is just a natural extension of that.
Looking for nightlife? Start with a cocktail in the lounge in Generations Restaurant - Straight Shot.Be sure to take a good look at the drink menu, because sometimes one drink is just not enough. You can also check out our bar menu and grab a snack in one of the cozy booths.
When you are finished eating, dance the night away at Roomers Nightclub to the sounds of a DJ or live band.
For your aquatic pleasures, try our newly renovated heated indoor pool with sauna, steam room & hot tub or relax on our private, white sand beach. Swim in the cool, clear waters of Mirror Lake and enjoy complimentary canoes, rowboats, paddle boats & kayaks for exploring the shoreline. Lake trout, bass & perch abound for the fisherman. In winter, nature helps us turn those cool clean waters into a winter play land. Skate on the ice rink, take a dogsled ride or build a snowman right in our backyard!
Lake Placid is the gateway to the outdoors, our soul lies in the hills that surround us. Those seeking a back-country challenge & the excitement of summiting a peak in one of the most unique mountain ranges in the world find their solace in the forests of the Adirondacks. The undeveloped & pristine landscape lends itself to individual exploration, where hikers or backpackers can lose themselves - figuratively we hope - for hours or days at a time.
