Dream Rustic Wedding

I can not say enough about the fantastic experience we had with Great Pines as our wedding venue. For weddings they ask that you book all the rooms onsite for the entire weekend, so we got the whole resort to ourselves without outside interruptions. The resort was a beautiful location for all of our guests with great views and lots of activities in the area to choose from. The onsite wedding coordinator, Hannah, was there every step of the way to help us finalize decisions and customize the wedding for what we were looking for. She also kept in constant communication (even on maternity leave) to keep us up to date on current COVID restrictions and how they would be handling them. The days before the wedding we were very concerned about the weather, but the staff helped to coordinate multiple options that still fit my vision for the special day. After the wedding, the most frequent compliments I got were in regards to the venue staff being so helpful and professional during the reception.

My only advice would be to skip working directly with the front desk for any guest reservations and go directly through the wedding coordinator. We had multiple hickups that could have been avoided if we just went through her the majority of the time.

In a nutshell everything was perfect. Great Pines met all our accommodations we wanted. Lake view, hotel and bar, lake access, space for tent, help with planning...ETC. We had many friends and family tell us it was the best wedding they've ever been too.

Best Choice

I don't even know where to begin - this place is unreal. Brita, Devlin, and Hannah know what makes the Adirondacks so special, and they package it up and help you create the most beautiful wedding of your dreams. I was married this September and everything was perfection. The food, staff, vibes, property, and accommodations all exceeded expectations and then some. Don't pass up the after party in the lean-to, it was my FAVORITE part of the whole night. All of my guests reiterated many times that is was the best wedding they have ever been to, and there are so many reasons for that. The effort Great Pines puts into your special day is unmatched. You won't get a run-of-the-mill wedding factory type of experience, everything is so personal which makes it extra special. If you can dream it, they can make it happen. No detail is forgotten - I added some pictures so you can see the dreamy-ness for yourself. You can't go wrong with Great Pines - get your Pintrest board ready!!
