Where do I begin?! Our guests couldn’t stop complimenting us on our selection of the venue. Everything from the food to the staff to the decor and ambiance of our entire weekend was perfect. The day went better than we ever could’ve imagined. The patio ceremony is gorgeous, the pool cocktail hour is cozy, the reception under the tent is beautiful and the fire pit is icing on the cake!
Dunhams Bay Resort has tons of space which really helps make your wedding unique. We monopolized the whole place! We had a welcome dinner in the downstairs bar the day before, used 3 different spaces for the day of the wedding and then brunch in the upstairs restaurant the next day. Not to mention that there was something for our guests to do all weekend between swimming, bocci courts and the fire pit.
The service...was...impeccable! I can’t say enough good things about all of the staff. Throughout the year-long wedding process, they were there to help answer any questions and get in touch with people if we needed them too. They made the weekend of our wedding flawless. Our guests literally went out of their way to tell us how fantastic the staff was. Special thank you to Lynn who helped us every step of the way and then some! She really went above and beyond.
I would recommend DBR 100% for your wedding, a hidden gem in Lake George. It’s private, spacious, great ambiance and fantastic staff...they focus on YOU all weekend. Absolutely the best. Couldn’t imagine my wedding anywhere else!
Thanks so much to everyone at Dunhams Bay Resort!!!Sent on 11/08/2019

Dunhams Bay Bends Over Backwards!
We were absolutely blown away by our entire experience at Dunhams Bay. From the food to the staff to all of the accommodations, everything was perfect. A huge shout out to Lynn who is absolutely incredible! We could not thank her enough for her attention to detail and making the day run as smoothly as possible. She never missed a beat! I don’t think we could’ve imagined a more perfect weekend. Thank you to everyone involved, we are forever grateful!Sent on 10/27/2019
Dunham's Bay Resort's reply:What an EPIC day!!! It was my pleasure to make your wedding day so special, you ladies were super fabulous to work with. Hope to see you soon.
Get all the great value of a winter wedding for $65 per person.
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!
