Dunham’s Bay Resort was the perfect venue for Jason and I, we loved Lynn ( our certified wedding planner) from start to finish! Lynn did an incredible job assisting with planning our wedding, this woman went above and beyond our expectations! A bartender was out for our rehearsal dinner, she tended bar for us, our grandparents had difficulty walking, she drove our grandparents to the reception on a golf cart, we lost our room key, she made up a spare key right away, she booked my husband’s lazer tag bachelor hangout for all the groomsmen, she made sure we got our sunset photos on the lake and worked closely with our photographer to find all the beautiful photography spots around the venue, she made sure we had “alone time” soaking in being married right after our ceremony and she even decorated our beautiful bridal suite cabin on our marriage night, She accomplished everything we wanted in our dream wedding and more! We are beyond happy with Lynn from Dunhams bay and plan to visit Dunhams bay for our first wedding anniversaries :)Sent on 09/30/2018

Absolutely Perfect 💚
When they say Dunham’s Bay is a hidden gem... they arent kidding! We were looking for a venue that had both of our favorite things, water and woods. Dunham’s Bay was the total package! Beautiful lake front view for our ceremony, great air conditioned reception inside, and ended the night out back relaxing by the fire pit with our family and friends 💚 The atmosphere is completely relaxing and chill, yet beautiful and elegant all at the same time. Lynn (the wedding planner) and all of her staff were incredible! She totally got the vision that I had, and she made it come to life! Every little detail was taken care of, which made our day completely stress free and amazing!Sent on 08/12/2019
The food there was to die for! We did buffet style which allowed our guests to enjoy many different options from grilled swordfish, Caribbean jerk chicken and a top sirloin carving station! Those were just the ones we chose... so many others for you to pick from! In addition, there was a pasta station with a choice of 3 different sauces! From the appetizers, to entrees and everything in between... perfection!
Like I mentioned before, the staff there is incredible! Super friendly and fun! It was one of the hottest days this year, and the smiles never left their faces! Lynn and some of the ladies even joined us on the dance floor for a bit 🙂 The bartender was great as well! Our guests never had an empty hand!
Lastly, the rooms and cabins. Clean, spacious and cozy as heck! Yes, it’s an older building, but that’s what made it perfect for us! It gives you the “Dirty Dancing” vibe that I loved so much! The staff does a wonderful job with keeping up on the grounds and cleanliness! When we got back to our cabin at the end of the night, Lynn and her staff had set up a nice surprise in our room 😊
We would not have had our perfect wedding anywhere else... this is a truly magical place that we will continue to visit for years to come!
Dunham's Bay Resort's reply:Even when the heat index is over 100 degree's you never complained. We had so much fun planning your wedding and so happy we could put on an epic wedding for you!!! Love you both and hope to see you for your anniversary or even before than.

A beautiful property for your special day! Every last detail was amazing from the view to the food every guest was amazed. Lynn was extremely accommodating and made sure that we had everything we needed. Highly Recommend this venue!Sent on 05/24/2019
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!
