Outdoor Adventure and Locally Sourced Cuisine on Mirror Lake
Golden Arrow Lakeside Resort is set along the banks of Mirror Lake in the northern Adirondack Mountains. Its location in the village of Lake Placid puts guests in the perfect spot for enjoying the outdoors: nearby Whiteface Mountain attracts hikers and Mirror Lake is ideal for kayaking. After a day spent taking in the natural surroundings, you'll find plenty to keep you entertained at the tranquil lakeside resort, which boasts an indoor pool, two hot tubs, and a farm-to-table restaurant.
Lakeside guest rooms offer picturesque views of Mirror Lake and the Adirondack Mountains from private balconies and patios. They feature natural-wood furnishings and are designed to feel like a home away from home, with Keurig coffeemakers, free WiFi, and mini refrigerators.
In keeping with the resort’s eco-friendly practices, the onsite restaurant, Generations, serves locally grown produce and farm-raised meats. In the morning, for an additional $13 per person, you can enjoy breakfast in the dining room overlooking Mirror Lake. For dinner, guests can savor grass-fed bison raised at a local farm and housemade crab cakes. In the summer, chefs grow their own produce on the rooftop garden. You can grab an included cocktail at Straight Shot Lounge or groove to live DJ music at the resort's Roomers Nightclub.
