Here are a few of the most important things to know about choosing one of the best Adirondack wedding venues for your special day:
“Our wedding at Friends Lake Inn was AMAZING. The entire day (and weekend) felt like a fairytale storybook wedding. We booked the entire property from Friday-Sunday with the wedding on a Saturday. The outdoor ceremony was beautiful followed by cocktail hour in the Bistro and reception in the main dining area. We utilized the outdoor space after the wedding for dancing and a fire. We loved the unique and intimate vibe, beautiful scenery, fabulous food, on-site accommodations, friendly staff, and the fact that it was a one-stop shop by just dealing with the wedding coordinator.”

As one of the best Adirondack wedding venues in the area, you’ll be cared for from start to finish and get that fairytale wedding of your dreams.
