Beautiful Winter Weddings in the Adirondacks

The Adirondacks offer stunning natural beauty all year round, but it’s gorgeous during winter when the landscape is covered in snow. Many couples are drawn to the idea of exchanging vows in this winter wonderland, with snow-covered mountains, frozen lakes, and picturesque forests, making these winter weddings in the Adirondacks memorable and romantic. 

Winter weddings in the Adirondacks can be more intimate and secluded, as there are fewer tourists and wedding parties compared to the popular summer season. Couples looking for a private and romantic ceremony might opt for a winter elopement. Our Upstate New York hotel is the perfect place to plan your nuptials. We’ve been named the best wedding venue in the Adirondacks by Wedding Wire and The Knot, and our rustic yet elegant hotel is the ideal place for romantic lodging for the happy couple and your guests. 

Friends Lake Inn is nestled amidst the forest in the secluded and scenic woods near the charming hamlet of Chestertown, NY. We’re just 20 minutes from the popular Lake George area but with none of the busy crowds. Our Upstate New York hotel is well known for its exceptional hospitality, upscale guest rooms, exquisite onsite dining, and easy access to the best things to do in the Adirondacks—it’s the ideal combination for unforgettable winter weddings in the Adirondacks!
