    Perfection on the Lake

    We cannot say enough amazing things about this venue and their staff. We knew from the moment we met Lynn that this was where we wanted to hold our wedding. Lynn as a wedding coordinator was fabulous. Lynn and all of her staff went above and beyond to make sure we would remember our wedding day forever. From the start of the planning, Lynn was always available by email and phone to help us find any other vendors we needed, coordinating the outside vendor’s needs all the way through the event, helping us work out all of the small details that come up, and making everything as stress free as possible. The food was delicious and the menu that the staff helped us plan for our wedding day had something everyone to enjoy. Our wedding day ran perfectly all thanks to the staffs well planned coordination and perfect handling of all of our outside vendors needs. This place has amazing views for the wedding ceremony and a first look, if one is scheduled. It is an amazing location to hold a wedding, and we couldn’t have asked for anything more.

    Dunham's Bay Resort's reply:

    Thank you so much for the kind words not only for myself but for my amazing staff. We together work very hard to ensure that our couples have the best experience ever on their wedding day. Amanda and James I wish for you the best life can offer and hope to see you before your anniversary next year. Congratulations.

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.
