    Gorgeous venue

    We fell in love with the Whiteface Lodge from the pictures alone. It’s even more beautiful in person and an absolute dream location if you’re looking for something with both a rustic and intimate flair. Elissa and Kelly were both absolutely amazing to work with. We had to make numerous changes to our plans due to ever-changing COVID regulations, and both women were wonderfully calm and accommodating throughout the whole ordeal. (We did have some issues with our reservations when we arrived, I’m guessing as a result of all the changes we made, but I do not believe either Elissa or Kelly were responsible for that.) Kelly was our day-of coordinator, and she went above and beyond on numerous occasions, even taking the time to bounce my baby niece so my sister-in-law could enjoy her dinner! While I would not recommend trying to plan a wedding during a pandemic, I would absolutely recommend booking the Whiteface Lodge to celebrate your special day!

    Beautiful venue, exceptional service

    My daughter booked The Whiteface Lodge for her June 2020 wedding. The property is beautiful and the staff exceptional. We had to reschedule twice and they, most especially Elissa, were just outstanding in every way. They really cared about what was going on and went out of their way to make my daughter's dream wedding come true. Unfortunately we were not able to have that wedding due to Covid. The Whiteface Lodge has been truly exceptional throughout all of it. We wouldn't hesitate to try again for another event.

    Whiteface Lodge: Luxury Venue, Adirondack Elegance, Astonishing Value

    The Whiteface Lodge was our wedding venue for our Adirondack wedding on September 15, 2019, and it was the most magical place to have a wedding, the most prepared, generous and hospitable to us and our guests. I can’t say enough about this exemplary venue and our two points of contact: Rosette Press, Director of Social & Catering Sales, and Nicole Zaluski, on-site Wedding Planner and Artist of our day.

    Our Adirondack wedding was a destination wedding, so first we interfaced with Rosette, who showed us the Whiteface and helped us get our contract together, choose our food and nail down the overall timing and purchases. Rosette is elegant, wise, funny and calm…she helped us stay on task and followed up professionally when payments were due and as our day approached. Rosette’s calm competence and attention to detail made us feel well cared for, in supremely good hands, assured and relaxed and ready.

    As our day approached Nicole became our front and center contact, as she is the artistry behind the entire day. Nicole interfaces with ALL vendors on the day of the wedding, so you don’t have to, and she handles every little personalized touch and detail with more precision and care than you can imagine.

    I once came to visit Nicole before the wedding and she was personally re-vacuuming one of the private dining rooms for a rehearsal dinner she was curating because she wanted it “just so.” Nicole is an actual artist; if you tell her your ideas she will create something even more magical than you imagined…taking your idea and making it more ethereal, more artistic, more unique. Nicole made all our details come together in a fabric of beauty, warmth and welcome! I valued her and her curation SO SO MUCH.

    If Nicole is the artist/wedding planner for your day, she has an astonishing canvas to work with: The Whiteface Lodge is one of the most stunning interiors/exteriors I have ever seen. Its honeyed Adirondack wood is inviting, its dimensions generous yet cozy, and it photographs extremely well, warm with great hues and tones. The setting of the property is singular and stunning, nestled in the Adirondacks, friend of wind and water. Our guests were over the moon with this venue; they still compliment us on finding such a gem for our wedding setting.

    The food at the Whiteface is exemplary and surprising: Chef chose local seasonal vegetables and created food that was delicious and fresh, Michelin quality, including wines that were paired and appreciated. The servers are elegant and well-oiled, the entire day went better than we could have imagined. The Lodge setting felt casually elegant, not fussy, but deeply luxurious and cultured, a place to remember, a place to return to.

    The Whiteface is a luxury venue, no doubt about it, but when the bill came in we were actually surprised at what an overall value it was. All the beauty, care and singular setting for a good price. You won’t regret choosing the Whiteface Lodge, and working with Rosette and Nicole. They will make you want to come back, again and again, to such a special place…as unique as Brigadoon!
