Editor’s Review of Golden Arrow Lakeside Resort
The family's commitment to its guests, its community and the environment is evident at every turn. An in-room recycling program and Green Quiz scavenger hunt are most notable, but guests who arrive by hybrid car, foot or skis receive a gift bag -- and premiere parking for the ... more hybrid. Solar panels on the roof are done to keep the hotel as one with the Adirondack environment, and the five-story resort is 100 percent smoke-free.
Steffi Holderied was also one of the residents of Lake Placid who pushed to get the 1980 Winter Games to the area, and during the games, ABC television crews and other media occupied the resort. The family, originally from Germany, also personally took in the Austrian ski team at their home.
Without the dedication of the family, the resort would still be a top choice for families, due to its prime location on the lake, within steps of the Olympic Arena and the quaint shop-lined main street. The resort's tagline, "the only thing we overlook is the lake," is refreshingly true, and the staff and owners will work to make every single guest feel like a V.I.P. It's no wonder families have been returning to the Golden Arrow again and again for generations. less

RoomsAll guestrooms are equipped with refrigerators, coffee makers and free Wi-Fi. Lakefront rooms also include balconies and patios overlooking Mirror Lake, for just $20 more per night. The hotel's 46 suites are named after the Adirondack's 46 high peaks. Patio rooms --located on the third floor -- are pet-friendly. Deluxe rooms have two queen-sized beds or one king bed with a sleeper sofa, and some rooms have small dividers separating the sleeping and sitting areas.
Twenty specialty rooms and suites feature upgrades, such as microwaves, fireplaces (real and gas) or whirlpool tubs. Family suites have separate bed and living room spaces. Three condo suites, while lacking views of anything but the parking lot, have multiple bedrooms and living and dining space, along with full kitchens, ideal for larger families looking for a true home away from home.
