The Otesaga is absolutely stunning and did a spectacular job with our wedding ceremony and reception. The ambiance, professionalism, and service are impeccable. Ashley was very professional and knowledgeable throughout the planning and made the process enjoyable. She executed all events throughout the day perfectly. Everything was better than expected. All of our guests complimented us on the venue and stated it was the perfect location for a wedding.

We got married at the Otesaga a few months ago and it was nothing short of spectacular! From the food, to the service and incredible scenery, our guests have told us it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to. Our day of coordinator, Megan, was absolutely wonderful. She didn’t miss a beat or forget one tiny detail over the 1.5 years of planning. Thank you so much for everything!!!! We couldn’t be more happy about how everything turned out.

An Beautiful & Very Historic Hotel to celebrate your Wedding Day! I have DJed many Wedding Ceremony's & Reception's here. Love the place!

One of our favorite venues in Upstate NY - the property is gorgeous, the people are great, and our couples always rave about The Otesaga after their wedding.

A great venue. I know many brides that loved getting married there. It is hard work for the florist (lots of long trips back and forth - but that is not a couple's concern) ...but well worth it for the setting and the staff were a pleasure to work with.

The Otesaga is an amazing venue! The staff's attention to detail shows how much they care about your special day. Gordon and Brooke are always responsive to new ideas, and to bring your look alive. They can take care of everything, but the weather and they even have a backup plan for that! Thank you for being so easy to work with. Carol, Claire and team Mohican
