Our daughter had her wedding at Dunham's Bay Resort this past weekend. Lynn Clausen and her staff were exceptional at every stage of the wedding process, from booking, to food tasting, to assisting family with reservations, to providing advice and assistance to our daughter in her planning, and most importantly, on the actual weekend of the wedding. Lynn and her staff are very experienced, and remained calm, flexible and helpful all during our weekend. Lynn coordinated the arrival of all vendors, made sure the setup was as we wanted it, and was on the spot to answer any questions at a moment's notice. She seemed to have contingencies for everything - from a crochet hook to get the wedding dress bustle hooked, to pulling in favors from friends to deliver the sparklers we had neglected to bring (an ending our daughter had talked about for a year.) She made it happen anyway, and our daughter and son in law had the night they dreamed of! I have never seen them look so happy! Thank you Lynn, Katie and the rest of the team for making our weekend so special!

Dunhams bay was amazing. The moment we met Lynn we knew that this was the place for us. She made sure every thing went perfect and I can't thank her enough for all she did for us. They were able to accommodate all of my food allergies. She even went to get my favorite food brands so I could enjoy my wedding!

Professional Network & Endorsements

I have officiated several weddings at this venue. It's one of my favorites! The backdrop of Lake George for the ceremony is so beautiful. The grounds are well maintained and the staff is top notch. Lynn, the wedding coordinator, is the best in the biz and a joy to work with.

Lynn and her extraordinary wedding team always do a great job!! As a wedding vendor, I always get feedback from my brides and I have honestly never heard a bad review from a bride. Everyone has such great things to say about Dunhams Bay! I have stayed here several times, just as a hotel guest and all the staff are friendly & helpful.

Lynn and her incredible staff are wonderful and easy to work with! The venue is beautiful and unique!

The staff at Dunham's Bay Resort does an amazing job with each and every wedding event that they host. Their attention to detail is second to none. They are very hospitable and quickly make you feel comfortable.
