The Lodge on Echo Lake made my wedding an absolute dream weekend. We took over the camp on Friday 9/1 and had activities going on (boating! rock wall! games!) all day long. Saturday evening 9/2 was the wedding at the lodge and it was absolutely fun and beautiful and one of the best weddings I have ever gone too (and I have heard the same from most of my guests!). Kathy is a dream to work with, so loving and supportive and GROUNDED. Made me, as the bride, feel totally at ease. I am recommending the lodge and camp to EVERYONE who is looking to have a fun, beautiful, rustic wedding :) THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Planning a wedding is stressful, even if you do what we did and try to keep it simple. There's always details that pop up you would never have thought of. Kathy was AMAZING at helping us with those and more. She has suggestions and recommendations. It was so appreciated! The venue was beautiful, the food was raved about, and everyone enjoyed the bonfire with huge smiles on their faces. The entire staff was top notch.

Our family had a great experience here, i would recommend the lodge to everyone.
The Lodge on Echo Lake is one of my favorite places to photograph. They have an Adirondack feel and it's very catered to your wedding or event only, you have the entire place to work with yourself, which is important. We've captured many weddings at this location over the years. They are great to work with and it's always a good time. OOTO looks forward to working at this venue again!
The Lodge at Echo Lake offers such a wonderfully beautiful and relaxes setting for any couple wishing to get married in the Adirondacks. Their property offers so many different options for your wedding weekend and their staff is nothing less than professional and caring. I would recommend them to anyone looking to get married in the Lake George region!
We have had the privilege and honor of photographing weddings at this beautiful venue many times over the years! One of our best weddings there was for the Curtis Family, of Curtis Lumber and the staff from the Lodge made my clients very happy with their reception including the ceremony. The grounds outside the venue has many photo opportunities for great photos, especially at sunset down by the Lake! We absolutely love the rustic, yet elegant feel you get from their mail ballroom! The dance floor is amazing with the high ceilings and large gorgeous windows that allow the room to shine! We recommend The Lodge at Echo Lake to anyone looking in having something unique for your venue! http://www.imagineportraitstudio.com/andrew-and-kylie-holland-at-the-lodge-on-echo-lake/
