History
Garnet Hill Lodge was named for a nearby garnet mine, which opened in 1893. By 1928, however, the mine’s riches were in decline and it soon ceased operation. The Loghouse was built in 1937 as a guest house and restaurant. It became the Adirondack Inn in 1970 and eventually evolved into a resort community. It underwent renovation in the 1980s; however, many original features still remain, such as the impressive stone fireplace.

    Magical weekend weeding at Garnet Hill

    My daughters wedding this past weekend at Garnet Hill Lodge was spectacular. From the time the planning began a year ago until we picked up the last forgotten items today, the experience was amazing.

    Nicole, the Lodge event planner, helped us make the decisions that were needed to be made, with ease and confidence. She handled all my last minute changes with grace and a 'Got it' attitude.


    All of our guests commented on the amazing views and accommodations. The food was delicious and plentiful. Nobody went hungry.

    We had the entire Lodge for the wedding, so it felt like we were visiting a relative's Adirondack hideaway on the top of a mountain. Guests took advantage of the kayaks and canoes, bonfires and s'mores at night, and the well-equipped game room .

    The Lodge staff was amazing, especially Lucy, who set up for the ceremony and reception according to our plans without missing an item, Patty, server extraordinaire, and Chef Brad, who offered amazing dishes as well as customized others for us.

    As guests were leaving Sunday morning, all of them mentioned that it was one of the best, most relaxing weddings they have attended.

    All we could have asked for and more

    We knew this was the place we wanted to get married as soon as we drove up.

    Nicole and all the staff were amazingly helpful and accommodating with all our ideas and requests. We wanted a low-key affair that was also nice and enjoyable and Garnet Hill delivered on all counts. All our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the celebration and the venue. It was especially important to us to extend our party over the whole weekend, and being able to have a private celebration at GHL was exactly what we wanted. Our wedding weekend was everything we could have asked for and more. The staff are very professional and took care of all our needs on the wedding day, and we did not have to worry about anything and were able to relax and enjoy our celebration.

    The food throughout was absolutely amazing! From breakfast to BBQ to the food for the reception, we did not have a bad meal the entire time. The kitchen accommodated all the food allergy concerns, and the Polenta the chef recommended for our reception was exceptionally good. The maître d', Lucy, made sure we were well taken care of throughout.

    We really can't say enough good things about Garnet Hill. We were also able to stay within our budget, and the prices were entirely reasonable, unlike at so many other places that we looked at. Nicole and staff answered all our questions and put us at ease in planning our event. We always felt taken care of and respected. Garnet Hill was the perfect place to have our queer wedding in the Adirondacks.
