Above and beyond the call of duty. We had our rehearsal dinner, bridal suite, ceremony, reception, and all meals in bewtween here. To this very day our wedding is the talk of the best weddings of all time. The attention to detail, love, support, and willingness to make your day perfect is immeasurable. Not enough words to say! The whole weekend all of our cares as a bride and groom were handled to point of us being able to truly enjoy our family, friends, and most of all us. The staff became a second family by the time it was all said and done. If you are looking for a laid back, gorgeous viewSent on 01/18/2015

Long Weekend: The Lake House on Canadarago Lake Richfield Springs NY
I got married here on 23rd July 2016. It was definitely a very unique experience! We arrived and Christine from the Lake House was immediately on hand with brollies to keep up from the great Canadarago Lake rain. We went on and what a place!! Me and my fiance were nervous obviously, but the registrar Dean(who was a fantastic gentleman too) went through the whole ceremony with us to put us at ease. We had booked the Ball room but they changed it to the Main Stage on the Lake which made it EXTRA special. It was magical. If you want a wedding to remember and want something different-DO IT!! You will not regret it!!Sent on 02/17/2019
