From the moment my partner and I arrived, until the time we departed, Great Pines was incredible in every way. I cannot stress enough the professionalism and amount of care each of the team members puts into everything they do. The venue itself is beautiful, with locations of the dock overlooking beautiful 4th lake (where we had our ceremony) to the great room and dining room, every space was clean, well appointment, and comfortable. The food from the chef blew all of our guests away. We had a wonderful raw fish bar with cocktail hour which was presented throughout the great room and a family-style dinner with quality dishes that some of family have never had an opportunity to experience. We had a fun reception with simple colored lighting in the dining room for dancing and a great bone-fire overlooking the lake which just capped our perfect wedding. Everything was more than we could have ever dreamed of and wedding venues in our home of NYC paled in comparison to the value and experience we had with Great Pines. We cannot recommend Great Pines highly enough!Sent on 06/08/2019

Where to even begin- I cannot say enough about what an amazing experience we had having our wedding at Great Pines. Eddie and I had the pleasure of watching Great Pines evolve from the start of construction to its completion, and it's truly amazing what Britta and Devlin did to transform the property into the perfect place for a wedding celebration!! The tent where we had our reception was beautiful- from the view of the lake to the details and lighting in the tent, it and was all breathtaking! The staff did a PHENOMENAL job, to the point where many guests went out of their way to tell us about it. All of the wait and bar staff were so attentive and kept everything running smoothly. The food was also outstanding- everyone raved about it. I have been to a lot of to weddings and have never heard so many people so happy with their dinners! Chef is incredible, you really can't get food like that anywhere else in the the Old Forge area. We are so grateful to Britta and Devlin for what a wonderful job they did every step of the to way up to our wedding day. They are down-to-earth, great people and truly made us feel more like old friends than customers.Sent on 10/09/2017

This is the perfect venue for a small and intimate ceremony, reception, and family get away. Although Great Pines can meet the needs of larger weddings, I felt that if you are looking for quality time spent with the ones that you truly care about being there for your special day (and weekend!), this is the perfect location. It is beautiful and extremely versatile. With many different ways and spots around the property to have your ceremony and reception, Great Pines can fit your exact need! There is no need to bring in a lot of decoration, as Great Pines is already such a beautiful venue. I would highly recommend Great Pines on Fourth Lake in Old Forge, NY, as a prime wedding location for your dream Adirondack wedding!Sent on 05/24/2017
