I can not say enough great things about the Sagamore. I grew up dreaming about my wedding there, and they took that dream and made it a reality - ten times over. Dawn Bennett is incredibly professional, thorough, and relaxed to boot! I was shocked at the service we received at the Sagamore, everything from the front desk, bellman, restaurant staff, banquet captains, you name it, went above and beyond my expectations. I was planning my Sagamore (NY) wedding all the way from Colorado - and they made it effortless. I can't wait until one of my cousins or sisters gets married here so we can relive it all again.Sent on 03/28/2012

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
If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind reception location The Sagamore would be a perfect choice. Everything is A-plus from the moment you arrive and so many options allowing you to make your wedding unique and different. All the staff are exceptional and go out of their way to make sure you’re delighted. Service and food is five-star. As for pictures, there are breathtaking backdrops with Lake George and The Adirondacks and you can literally be right on the water. Even have a playful game of croquet if the mood strikes you!! The possibilities are endless. I love Sagamore weddings!!
