The PERFECT Wedding Venue
Having our wedding at the Otesaga was the best decision we could have ever made. It is HANDS DOWN the most magical place for a wedding in the upstate NY area, and the only thing more beautiful than the venue is the unbelievable team that works there.
Working with Megan Chase, the Event Manager at the Otesaga, was such an amazing experience. She was the definition of “calm, cool, and collected” no matter what, and made even the most stressful moments of wedding planning feel like a piece of cake. From beginning to end she was helpful, caring, communicative, hard-working, and an absolute pleasure to coordinate with.
The food, the staff, and the venue itself are all exceptional and exceeded every expectation — they truly allowed us to have the wedding of our dreams. I could not recommend the Otesaga more!Sent on 09/21/2020

The PERFECT Wedding Venue!
There are no words to express how truly wonderful the Otesaga Resort is as a wedding venue. My husband and I had our welcome event, ceremony, reception, after party, and morning-after breakfast at the Otesaga, and we could not be happier with how amazing everything was! The staff were incredible, the service was impeccable, and the views were breathtaking. Brooke was wonderful to work with and made our wedding vision come true. The decision to have our wedding at the Otesaga was the best decision we could have made and could not recommend it more highly to other couples. Look no further for your wedding venue, as the Otesaga is the perfect place to have your dream wedding! My husband and I look forward to celebrating our anniversary at the Otesaga in years to come!Sent on 07/20/2019

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.
