Top 3 Resorts in Lake Placid


Lake Placid offers more than just skiing. In the winter, you can ski, snowboard, ice skate, go to the movies, or just take in the beautiful views. In the summer, you can fish, golf, miniature golf, hike, and much more. You can also shop and/or dine in either season. And let’s not forget spring and autumn. Spring is beautiful because of warming weather and blooming trees. Autumn is beautiful because of changing leaves and comfortably crisp air. The three resorts covered below offer even more. If a resort is on this list, it can be considered one of the best resorts in Lake Placid.

1. Golden Arrow Lake Resort


What stands out most about the Golden Arrow Lake Resort is that it’s a green hotel. This refers to the hotel being environmentally-friendly, not the color of the hotel. The Golden Arrow proves that it’s possible to run a successful business without being wasteful. The views here are also stellar considering the hotel is right on Mirror Lake. However, only some of the rooms offer lakeside views. If you’re unable to get a lakeside room, don’t be too upset; you will still have a private balcony and access to a private beach. When you’re on the beach, feel free to take a complimentary boat ride. The Golden Arrow Lake Resort also has the best food in Lake Placid. Other hotel amenities include an indoor pool, a gym, a Jacuzzi, racquetball, and free WiFi. Every room comes with a refrigerator and a coffee maker. Pets are allowed.
