Fodor's New York City 2014
Golden Arrow Lakeside Resort
Golden Arrow Lakeside Resort Review
The former Best Western Golden Arrow is under new management, and sits right in the heart of Lake Placid, on Main Street. Beautiful views of Mirror Lake are available from the lobby and some rooms, which have balconies. But what really sets the property apart is the owners' decision to go as green as possible. Expect recycled and ecofriendly gifts to greet you on arrival (perhaps a pine-tree seed in a terra-cotta pot filled with earth, for example). Have a seat at Charlie's, the resort restaurant, for a view of the green roof. The roof, finished in summer 2008, is an insulating blanket of plants grown on a flat section of the property's roof. Some of the herbs grown there might go into dishes served at Charlie's. Kids' programs are available. Pros: large, clean and spacious rooms; easy access to Mirror Lake. Cons: it's nice to have a fireplace in your room, but the smell from others' fires lingers.
