If you're looking for an NY getaway that combines luxury with sustainability, the Golden Arrow Lakeside Resort is a serene and green vacation spot located in Lake Placid. TripAdvisor, the world’s largest travel site, recently awarded the resort with a 2012 Certificate of Excellence Award for its exceptional service and consistently high customer reviews, an honor bestowed upon just 10 percent of reviewed properties. The Golden Arrow is also the only U.S. resort to receive the Audubon Society’s 5 Green Leaf Eco Rating for Hotels.
About a five hour drive from NYC, the Golden Arrow Resort has extensive green features including a green roof, sustainable dining, CFL lighting, and even VIP parking for hybrid cars.
“We take third party reviews and the feedback and opinions of our guests very seriously,” said Golden Arrow Resort Owner Jenn Holderied Webb. “This award is a reflection of our service and showcases the exceptional staff that really make the experience extraordinary for our guests.”
