A 40-Year, Golden Family Affair A prominent fixture in the Upstate New York alpine village of Lake Placid - former host to two Winter Olympic games in 1932 and 1980 - the Golden Arrow has made its mark in the tiny town of just under 2,000 year-round residents, as well as the lives of numerous travelers who have passed through its doors over the years. Located directly on the shores of Mirror Lake and Main Street Lake Placid, the Holderied family matriarch and patriarch, Winfried and Stefanie Holderied, purchased the then Golden Arrow Motor Inn in 1974 from a local lawyer - it had just 36 rooms. After several massive renovations, a Winter Olympic games in 1980 during which the resort's guests included the likes of the Austrian National Ski team and the ABC television crew, and a total overhaul of their environmental practices, today, the 165-room resort has transformed into a leading lodging property in Lake Placid, and a visionary among Adirondack hoteliers in promoting sustainable travel. Since the inception of the resort's extensive green program in 2005, the Golden Arrow has been named a platinum-certified property in Audubon International's Green Lodging Program - one of only six nationwide - and has received a number of noteworthy eco-travel awards, including being named a finalist in last year's Condé Nast Traveler World Savers Awards. "2014 marks a big year for the resort and we're thankful for everyone who has helped us to get to where we are today," Holderied said. "Whether new or returning, we hope our guests can join in the celebration along with us."
