Golden Arrow Wedding
I cannot say enough good things about our experience at Golden Arrow. I knew from first meeting the coordinator, Alex, that this was the place for our wedding. Throughout the whole process Alex and Natasha were always very responsive and quickly alleviated any concerns I had. The day of was seem-less. The food was delicious and my guests all had a wonderful time. The lakefront setting was perfect for our ceremony and boathouse lovely for our cocktail hour. The reception space fit our style and there were multiple options. Wouldn’t change a thing and would highly recommend for your wedding or other evenSent on 10/03/2019

Wouldn't have changed a thing!
Leading up to our date of arrival for the wedding Alex and Natasha did a great job communicating with us around any questions we had. We arrived to the Golden Arrow on Thursday morning and were getting married on Saturday, December 14th. Alex, Brandon, and Natasha met with us that morning to discuss some final wedding details. From that moment on, every staff member at the front desk was aware that we were the bride and groom. They helped us with all the small things like holding some bags at the front desk, providing tape, sharpies, etc. when it came to our last minute details. Alex was prompt to help us with anything we needed while we were working on set up of our space. Our "cousin Vinny" checked in on us several times and helped with anything we needed. He was so friendly to have at the resort and was willing to help us with any needs or questions we had.
What I appreciated most about Alex is that she had a clear vision on what our dream day looked like. All week the weather had called for heavy rain and we planned on having our ceremony on the top of the boathouse. Both Alex and Brandon encouraged us to not let the rain get in the way if we really wanted to be outside while saying our vows. So we did just that!
The night before the wedding a large group of ours went to Generations (connected to Golden Arrow) for welcome drinks and dinner. The staff in Generations were accommodating to our large group of 30 people.
The day of the wedding, the rain held off. If I were to sum this up in words, I would say it was absolutely perfect and we would not change one thing about it. The bridal room we used was a dream to get ready in. It was so beautiful, and perfect for a group of 13 females (or more). Alex and Brandon checked in on me throughout the morning hours, and when it came time for the ceremony Alex was right there-- Thank you! I was so happy I even said "I do" too soon!
Once the reception began Natasha was present in the evening hours. She asked us several times if we needed anything at all. To be honest I think my response each time was "I'm perfect". I couldn't think of anything because our day was everything we wanted it to be. The Four Seasons room looked stunning, the food was delicious, and our group and their dance moves were on point (thanks to Lake Placid DJ).
That night when Matt and I went to our room we found a photo of us during our ceremony, and a note from the team at Golden Arrow. What a thoughtful touch and the best gift we could have received after such a special day.
Thank you Golden Arrow for everything your whole team did to make us feel so special. Alex, Brandon, Natasha, front desk, and cousin Vinny this experience would not have been what it was without you. We will be back for our 1 year anniversary (and hopefully sooner).
I would highly recommend Golden Arrow and this team to anyone!Sent on 12/19/2019

My wife and I cannot stop thinking about how perfect our experience at the Golden Arrow was. We spent the week leading up to our wedding at the Golden Arrow. During that time, Alex and Brandon were very accommodating, going out of their way to make sure we were provided with everything we needed, whether it be room for storage or help with first look locations. Beyond that, there was so much to do around town and the surrounding area that our guests were able to enjoy themselves as they arrived throughout the week. As I read other good reviews about the experience on the day of their wedding, I could not agree more. Our day was absolutely perfect. The forecast was for rain most of the week but Alex and Brandon continued to assure that, no matter what, we would have a beautiful day. The rain held off and our ceremony from atop the boathouse was nothing short of spectacular! From early in the morning until the lights came on, and even during clean up, Alex and Brandon were there to make sure we had everything we needed. I would highly recommend the Golden Arrow as not only a wedding locale, but also a place to stay all year round!!Sent on 01/09/2020

Located in the heart of beautiful Lake Placid, the Golden Arrow is a stunning location for your wedding day celebration! Winters weddings are especially stunning with views of Mirror Lake and the snow capped mountains of the Adirondacks. I highly recommend them for your big day!
