The Lodge Lawn offers seating space for up to 90 guests. Any event over 75 guests requires a resort buyout. The largest event we may accommodate is 120 guests. For intimate lakeside ceremonies of 2 to 6, you can privately host your celebration at the water's edge of a two bedroom cabin or on your patio or balcony in a Lakeside Suite. Following your ceremony you can take a ride in the Hacker-Craft boat for a nominal fee, enjoy a cocktail hour with up to 75 guests or a 5 hour cocktail reception with a dinner/dance of 75 guests. The Moose Room is ideal for indoor ceremonies, perfect for an intimate Brunch, Lunch or Dinner Wedding Reception. It features a wood-burning fireplace and intimate decors, with seating for up to 24 guests. The Map Room, Mossy Cove or Adirondack Fire Cove are perfect for elopements.

Lake Placid Lodge offers elopement menus (2-20 guests) or wedding packages (21 - 120) and we will coordinate with you to prepare the space for your big day. We will be happy provide you with a list of preferred vendors who may assist you with all your additional enhancements not included in our packages, upon your request. For most couples the resort is a wedding destination. Hosting a destination wedding will take more planning then a venue close to where you reside. Our preferred vendor list also includes Wedding /Event Planners that you may decide to contact to navigate and coordinate all your additional vendor details for your Wedding Day (tent rentals, florists, musicans, DJ's, photographers, etc).
Lake Placid Lodge’s Chef curates farm-to-table meals made from scratch. We source local ingredients to suit your tastes and dietary preferences.

Fairy Tale Wedding
My daughter got married in July,2019 at Lake Placid Lodge. We all fell in love with the venue the day we saw it. Eden showed us around the property and it was magical. The wedding weekend was a beautiful weekend of love starting with the rehearsal dinner in the wine cellar, a bbq on Friday night and the wedding on the lawn on Saturday. Sunday we all had a delicious brunch. Everyone at the lodge went out of their way and over the top to make to make everything perfect. Thank you Eden and all the staff for a memorable event.Sent on 10/16/2019

Dream wedding venue!!
LPL (especially Eden!!) creates a dream for our wedding. We coordinated almost everything from a distance, and she made sure everything was beyond perfect. We stayed at the lodge, had our ceremony and reception there, and had Chef do our food and cake. The process was easy, communication was spectacular. Eden made me feel like a queen and made everything go so smoothly, even when the button on my dress broke 5 minutes before the ceremony (of course someone was there from LPL so repair it in time!) When we realized the night before we didn’t have table cards or menus, Eden made them and had them ready! There were more special touches than I can possibly list, and we can’t wait to return to the Lodge for many years to come.Sent on 03/20/2019

Our recent winter wedding at LPL was like a dream come true. Chris Bradway is a true professional and a valuable part of the Lodge. He was attentive, prompt, honest with his opinions, and a pleasure to work with. We are so glad he was there the day of to be a part of such a memorable occasion in our lives. The food was outstanding and we received many compliments from our guests. The servers were great...always available for a question and very friendly. In addition to our wedding being unforgettable, our stay at the Owls Head cabin is something we will remember for the rest of our lives. The cabin and views were breathtaking. We absolutely recommend the LPL for a wedding or special occasion and cannot wait to return for our anniversary.Sent on 02/23/2017
