“Michael and Genna's wedding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

My son and daughter-in-law were married at Dunham's Bay on 10/19/13. It all started with a wonderful stay with great service. We enjoyed the hot tub and pool and took many walks throughout the resort. It was an amazing wedding and great food. Everyone was served with a smile. Lynn was there for Michael and Genna from the time they first booked at Dunham's Bay right through their wedding. I highly recommend Dunham's Bay for any event or just a stay..

We recently had our wedding at Dunham's Bay. The entire experience was perfect!! We couldn't have asked for a better wedding. Lynn and her staff make sure that not only are things perfect but your day is stress free. In Lynn you can trust that your wedding day will be everything you want it to be...and more. Chef AJ's food is A-MAZING. If you are thinking about having your wedding in Lake George there is no better place or staff than Dunham's Bay Resort.

Great ceremony, great food, great atmosphere, great entertainment and great fun and joy. It was a wonderful day. I highly recommend this place for any special event or just dinner. They will take care of you.

Dear Roy U,
I can't thank you enough for taking the time to share your story with all. Lynn and her team are the best at what they do. I think sometimes we enjoy the weddings more than the guests. Thanks again for the kind words.

The service really stood out here, and we felt very welcome. The man at the front desk showed us to our room and made sure we had everything we needed and knew how everything worked. We had to leave early the next morning to run a marathon up in Schroon Lake, and he even offered to make us coffee before the normal coffee service started. The room was clean and comfortable, good value, and the area is beautiful. We were a little concerned by the very thin walls, but luckily our neighbors were alright, and we didn't have any trouble getting to sleep. I would stay here again if I was in the area.

We stayed at Dunham's Bay for an anniversary weekend Thurs- Sat and had an excellent time. The place is a 10 min drive from the village if you take beach street. We had a King room on the 2nd fl of the main house. It was clean and the bed was comfy, though there was no headboard, which we found a bit odd. The faucet did run if not tightened and the shower head could use replacing, but for the value we were happy with the room overall. Don't expect a hotel: expect a mix of cabin + hotel and your expectations will be met.

We also took advantage of the tennis courts and pool area, which were both great. There are bugs around the facility due to some kind of conservation law, but I must say that ALL the inside areas including pool, room, restaurant, etc., had no bugs in sight. I second all the reviews about the cleanliness of the place - they do a very good job maintaining what they can. Lynn was very gracious to us - recommended things go do in town, helped whenever we called; she even let us use the landline free of charge since cell phone service doesn't work. We used wi-fi for all our other needs, which worked great.

If you are looking for a quiet place to stay for a very reasonable price that includes more than just the four walls of your room, Dunham's Bay is a great find.

We were very happy with the resort and staff. Loved the camp fire at night and really appreciated the van service. Will definitely go back. The lake and location was beautiful. This was all that we expected

Dear Westy973,
Thanks for using your mobile device to rate us right away. We enjoyed the weekend as much as all the guests. With large events in town like Car Show weekend its nice to have a spot like ours to come back to and unwind away from the hustle and bustle. The shuttle service also adds to not having to find parking on those busy weekends downtown. We look forward to you coming back soon.

Dunhams Bay is a great location for a wedding celebration. The outside venue overlooking Lake George is a beautiful setting. We chose the dining room for the reception. It was set up as we had wanted. The dance floor and bar are in a perfect spot. People wishing to celebrate could, while those wishing to just visit were able to do so as well. The bride and groom were treated in our minds like royalty. Lyn, the director was everywhere making sure things went well. The 2 bedroom cabins served us well. They were clean and comfortable. The amenities, such as the pool, playground, and of course the evening campfire were well attended by our group. The chef did an outstanding job of preparing the food. The meal was as delicious as we had enjoyed during our food tasting experience. The hor d'oeuvres around the pool before the reception were very well received. The staff both circulated among the guests and also had a serve yourself appetizer table poolside.
We would have liked to have had an earlier check in time for our guests. The staff had our rooms ready. But check in time of 4PM for a 3PM wedding is not realistic. Out of town guests needed time to unpack. Also, I would suggest any older guests request either the cabins or ground floor rooms, as there are many stairs to climb.
A Sunday wedding was quite enjoyable. The day after was relaxing. Although Dunhams Bay has a check out time of 11AM. They were flexible with our guests because Mondays are typically a slow day. We were able to enjoy a nice breakfast with some of our guests and then wished them well as they left.

Room Tip: If two couples in a party, it is a better value to get a cabin. Those around the playground are idea...

Thank you so much for the kind words. As always we enjoyed hosting such a joyous occasion. We are very happy to hear you enjoyed using the inside of our venue for the reception. We also know check in on a holiday weekend was difficult but as always we try our hardest to get guest in as soon as we have rooms ready. Lynn and her team work hard to make it seem so effortless. Thanks once again.
