The most stunning venue on Lake George! Great food, staff is easy to work with, and the view is completely breath taking. The Sagamore is on it's own island making for a very private and intimate experience (at least in the fall). I cannot recommend The Sagamore enough!Sent on 12/06/2016

This was seriously the best place in the world to have a wedding. I decided I wanted to get married here when I was 5, and my dream finally came true this year! I can't say I really looked at any other venues, but I don't think anything would've changed my mind. I worked with Ashley, and she was superb! She always answered my questions quickly, no matter how small or silly they seemed. She always knew exactly what I had in mind, and was so helpful every step of the way! I had a Gatsby-Themed Rehearsal Dinner on the Morgan, which was just beautiful, and Ashley helped me set everything up, and even gave me plenty of ideas to set the tone of the evening. The whole wedding, (ceremony, cocktail hour, reception and brunch the following morning) went perfectly without a hiccup along the way. If anything did happen or something needed to change last minute, it was just taken care of, and I never even noticed. To me, it was the perfect day and it the whole planning process couldn't have gone better, thanks to Ashley & The Sagamore.Sent on 11/04/2016

The Sagamore literally made my dream come true. From our first interactions with them in scheduling a tour to the morning after the wedding, everything was done perfectly, professionally, and beyond any expectation I had. Every person we interacted with - from Valerie and Jennifer in the beginning stages to Abigail who became a life line, to Lori, Sue, and Josh for the reception - were amazing. Any issue that came up, whether ahead of time or an hour before, they were on it and handled it perfectly. Literally, and I am not exaggerating when I say this, the whole thing went perfectly - nothing went wrong. Nothing!!Sent on 10/18/2016
The venue is gorgeous, so picturesque. I think every guest I spoke to raved about the hotel, grounds, and service. Even photos that guests took (as I don't have my professional ones back yet) came out stunning. The food was amazing. Each course was better than the last, and multiple people told me it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding. I don't know how they made 100 filets medium rare all at the same time, but somehow they did! The cake was exactly what we spoke to Lori about and then some! The service for the wedding was spectacular. They looked and acted so professional and friendly, and every one of them found time to congratulate us. They looked happy and excited to be there with us. Sue, the banquet manager, made sure everything went according to plan seamlessly.
Jennifer and Abigail, the two contacts for the entire planning process, were a dream to work with. They answered emails incredibly quickly and were always so kind and wonderful. Abigail was there for us for us for every moment once the wedding weekend started. Literally, she made it perfect. All the decorations were just as we discussed with her, everything went smoothly, and when there were those last minute emergencies (our fault) she took care of it immediately. I've hit the limit for this review, but I could go on. I want to do it all over again!
