Petite Weddings in the Adirondacks

Looking for a beautiful and intimate venue for your wedding?


The Adirondack region, located just a few hours north of New York City, is an ideal location for a destination wedding. The unsurpassed natural beauty of the pristine and expansive Adirondack Mountains are the perfect place to refresh and unwind, and an ideal location for your wedding.


If you’re looking for a quiet and intimate wedding with family and friends, or if you’re planning a weekend elopement, at Friends Lake, we have everything that you need to make your wedding special and memorable.


Adirondack Weddings

Located in the beautiful southern Adirondack region of Upstate New York, our historic Adirondack lodge near Lake George, NY is the ideal venue for your special day. The spectacular beauty of this region is an ideal backdrop to your wedding, and we will work tirelessly to ensure that you and your loved ones have a memorable day.


Depending on the season, you can choose to have your ceremony in the beautiful garden by our brook-fed pond, at the lake or in front of the fireplace in our rustic, yet elegant parlor. We offer world-class dining, luxurious lodging, exceptional service, and attention to detail ensures that your special day is everything you dreamed.


Book one of our New York Elopement Packages, or choose our Destination Wedding Package if you’re planning to bring a few more guests. Whether you’re planning on something small and intimate, or if you’re hoping to celebrate with family and friends, we will take care of all of the details for you, ensuring that your big day unfolds exactly as it’s supposed to. We take the stress out of wedding planning, allowing you to focus on enjoying your special day.


Our Intimate Elopement Package includes a romantic candlelight dinner for two, a boutique wedding cake, sparkling wine, as well as lodging in an Adirondack Room with a fireplace. It also include a Justice of the Peace to facilitate your ceremony. There’s even breakfast in bed the next day, ensuring a beautiful, and full day from beginning to end.


For bigger weddings, we offer a number of venues for the ceremony and reception. Choose from the garden, the parlor, the wine cellar dining room, and the lake view dining room, as well as more spacious venues that are able to accommodate up to 120 guests.


The Beauty of a Petite Wedding

Smaller weddings can be just as beautiful as larger, more elaborate ceremonies, but provide for a certain intimacy that larger weddings can’t.  Additionally, with a smaller wedding, you don’t have to worry about finding a large venue that can accommodate crowds, instead, you’ll be able to choose locations based on other qualities, such as beauty, amenities, and comfort, without having to compromise, allowing you to ensure that you’ll be able to relax, and fully enjoy your special day, with those who matter most to you.


The Honeymoon

After your vows have been exchanged, you will want to spend time with each other, as well as those who have come to help you celebrate. A small wedding in the Adirondacks allows you to do both. You’ll have more time to spend one-on-one with each of your guests, while having your luxurious accommodation to look forward to at the end of the night. Our rustic, yet sumptuous, “Adirondack” rooms are beautifully appointed, and many include a Jacuzzi, balcony, fireplace, and excellent views.



Coming to the mountains allows you to truly escape from it all, and will ensue that you will have an exceptional day, full of beautiful memories. Soak up the surrounding beauty while enjoying the tranquility of the mountains, the perfect way to celebrate the start of your new lives together.
