Like many other couples, my husband and I had to cancel our original plans and downsize. We reached out to friends lake inn and planned our whole intimate wedding in just over a month. Our wedding coordinator Brittany worked so so hard to make our wedding a dream. Unfortunately, it rained on our wedding day, but my husband and I were able to get married in the main dining room and it was beautiful! I cannot say enough good things about the inn. We stayed for the whole week and had a mini honeymoon, the food was amazing all week and everyone went above and beyond to make sure we were happy and taken care of. We can’t wait to come back every year for our anniversary! We’re so happy!Sent on 11/03/2020
2020 has been such rollercoaster of a year and we cannot thank the staff at friends lake inn for making our wedding and honeymoon so special. The whole week we got to spend there felt like we stepped out of the chaos that is this year and we really can’t put in to words how incredible it was. Thank you!!

2020 was the most stressful year of wedding planning, but the second we changed our wedding to a micro wedding at Friends Lake Inn, the stress almost evaporated. They took care of everything. Brittany was amazing to work with and helped us plan every aspect. She was available to contact at any point in the day, and the open communication was huge for us!
The property of Friends Lake Inn is beautiful. The bridge behind the ceremony site with the weeping willow tree is just beautiful. I cannot stress how beautiful it really is. Your photos will be AMAZING. And, they have access to Friends Lake, so after the wedding you can walk down there and grab some shots by the water!
Dinner... Dinner had the best food I have ever had. Every guest loved their food. The presentation was spectacular and the taste was worth every penny. The food was above and beyond our expectations.
I think what we loved most is how this Inn really felt like a home. Every person was so kind and friendly. The rooms are beautiful. Every guest enjoyed themselves in this wonderful atmosphere.
If you are considering a wedding here, do it! I cannot say enough about this place. It will always hold a special place in my heart!Sent on 11/03/2020

Beautiful Fall Elopement
Friends Lake did a fantastic job of putting together our elopement! We had to postpone our big wedding until next year because of Covid. My husband and I still wanted to get married on our original date--a tall order, given that we moved to New York state three months before our wedding. We knew no one here, and we knew nothing about the wedding industry here! I lucked out and found Friends Lake on Google, and they put together the most beautiful elopement for us. They handled everything for us (exactly what we needed to happen, after planning, then postponing, our other large wedding), and the entire weekend was beautiful. The staff was all lovely (our breakfast server, Mary, even served as our witness!), and Brittney did a fantastic job of coordinating our flowers, meal, photographer, cake, and the gifts that our family and friends sent us. The inn is beautiful, and we had a great time canoeing and walking on the private trails the morning of our wedding. I couldn't have asked for a better elopement!Sent on 11/02/2020
Friends Lake Inn is a stunning venue for any wedding. It's fine dining menu, beauty and incredibly friendly & helpful staff set the tone for a perfect day. I have had the pleasure of making several cakes and desserts for couples at the Inn and look forward to each return visit.
Absolutely gorgeous inn at the Adirondacks. What a lovely setting to be married, stay and photograph a wedding.
