I recently got married at the Boathouse restaurant & couldn't be happier with the way everything turned out. Working with Dan & Jayne was a breeze...they accommodated everything we needed & were on top of every detail. All of our guests raved about the food, the attentive servers & the beautiful setting on the lake. A few of our guests stayed in the Lodges as well, which were convenient, comfortable and perfectly "woodsy" to give you that great ADK feel. As nervous as I was, it was such a laid back attitude that the wedding coordinators had, which made everything run perfectly smooth. It was a perfect day & I have no complaints..thanks so much to the Boathouse!

We were married at The Boathouse and had a wonderful experience with the venue.

It's a stunning property with a great view of Lake George, and the log-cabin-esque lodges are modern but rustic. There are lake activities, a half indoor / half outdoor pool, and a great playground for little ones. It's also extremely convenient for the guests to be able to stay at the Cresthaven Lodges (timeshare on property) for a long weekend and then attend the ceremony, reception, and next day brunch all at the same location (The Boathouse).

I can't stress enough what a pleasure it was working with Dan, Jayne, and Janice, who were our contacts for planning the wedding. They were incredibly flexile and accommodating and worked with us to make our vision come to life well within our budget. They were incredibly helpful during set-up and the event itself as well. We were especially grateful to have their amazing team running the show as we tried to balance entertaining our guests with a number of last-minute changes of plans due some rainy weather* plus an allergic reaction that I had during the reception from eating a nut-filled granola bar right before I walked down the aisle (my own fault!). The entire staff was so kind, flexible, and attentive, and their ability to not only go with the flow but help reorganize the flow saved our wedding.
(*It was really important to me to have a great rain plan when booking a venue since I didn't want to be stressing about the weather. Our ceremony took place on the covered dock right on the water and was beautiful and intimate.)

In general, everything was so flawless and seamless - just absolutely perfect - but beyond that, there were also such nice unexpected

The Boathouse and the Lodges at Cresthaven were an amazing place to have a ceremony and a reception. They were quick to respond to my emails, answer my questions and help me to realize my every dream and wish about my wedding. The staff was fabulous and catered to my guests, they were courteous and responsive, as well as catering to my husband and I. Their food was absolutely scrumptious and delicious in every way as well! The Lodges is a fabulous place to stay as well, their lodges are beautiful and comfortable. I loved the setting as a backdrop for my wedding and everything that they were able to help me to accomplish. Thank you! :)

I just wrote the following e-mail to Jayne at the Lodges at Cresthaven after our wedding there last weekend. The Boathouse is an AMAZING place to get married...I can't recommend it enough!

"Dear Jayne,

I want to thank you and the entire staff at the Lodges and Boathouse for an incredible experience. I am so thrilled at the way everything turned out, and our guests just raved about everything (especially that lobster mac and cheese...glad we went with that!)

The lodges are stunning. Everyone wants to come back here on vacation.

Most importantly, everyone was incredibly helpful, kind, and responsive the entire weekend and I felt relaxed and happy all the time. You especially have been a pleasure to work with for the past year--glad we got a chance to briefly meet!

I can't think of a better way to have gotten married."

I had dreamed of having my wedding in Lake George since I was young. My husband and I found The Boathouse Restaurant and Lodges at Cresthaven on line and feel in love immediately. The property is simply gorgeous and second to none. Our wedding was absolutely everything we could have ever dreamed it could be.
Working with Dan and Jayne was fantastic. They were responsive, flexible and accommodating. The bartenders, waitstaff and kitchen team were perfect. The food was five star quality; guests are still telling us how great their meals were months later.
Our families rented multiple lodges for the weekend, and the day after our wedding hung out on the beach and enjoyed a big barbecue dinner.
Our wedding was more than a evening, it was an awesome weekend event thanks to the hard work of everyone at the Boathouse and the Lodges.
My husband and I can't say enough about our experience with the Boathouse and the Lodges. It was simply perfect. Thank You!

The Boathouse Restaurant & Lodges by far met my expectations. From the beginning, Jayne at the Lodges and I became quick friends. Her responsiveness was probably the most efficiant I have seen from anyone. I did my part by reading tons and tons of reviews online before making my decision about the Boathouse, and boy am I happy I did! My friends and family would all agree that the experiences we had with this venue were by far over the top. Jayne walked me through wedding planning every step of the way! After the ceremony, it was extremely humid out, to the point, that I am shocked there wasn't anyone that passed out!! They had servers walking all around the lodges to make sure we were provided with waters, and wine of course during the photo session! The food, WOW. That is all I can say. Not only were the portion sizes HUGE, but the food was out of this world delicious. They even let us take home leftovers! We have been eating prime rib and lobster bisque for about a week straight! There was even a comment I made about wondering if my meat was cooked enough (I thought it was a bit too rare for me) but then I noticed that it was just the sauce on top of the meat, and that it was cooked fine. Within a few seconds, I had a server come over to me saying that she heard my meat wasn't cooked right and asked if I wanted them to re-fire it. Basically, what I am saying, is that the servers were attentive.

5 stars all around. I wish I could give more. I can't wait to go back to the Boathouse for years to come to celebrate a night I will never forget.

We had our wedding there a few weeks ago and it was really amazing. The staff was super professional, extremely flexible and overall just wanted to make sure that we had the best, stress-free day. For Lake George pricing, they are the best value for money and really cared that they did a great job. Couldn't have asked for anything more!

I'm honestly not sure where to begin. All I can say is that our day was ABSOLUTELY PERFECT! I cannot believe we had such an amazing wedding that fit our budget.

Jayne was so great to work with. We live out of town, so she responded quickly and professionally to my many many emails.

Dan and his staff decorated the restaurant exactly as I had envisioned. They didn't ask for any help.

Some of my friends stayed in the Lodges for the weekend, which provided the perfect reunion location with great views.

I just cannot stress enough how thankful I am that I found the Boathouse Restaurant for our wedding. The rustic elegance was the perfect feel for a wedding that felt cozy and fun, and we enjoyed the bonfire after. Friends were telling us they want us to renew our vows every year so that we can do it all over again! When people talk about our wedding, they usually mention the word "perfect" and I have to agree!

My husband and I picked the Boathouse due to the price, friendliness of the staff, accommodations, and responsiveness. They always returned are calls promptly. Jane was fantastic; she is their wedding coordinator. The week before the wedding, they called to confirm all details. They were the only venue that called to confirm every detail. The day of the wedding, they let our guests in to decorate and our other vendors as well. They included everything from the linens, to setting up all the tables, and even included the place settings. The food was amazing. Our guests wouldn't stop talking about it. Each meal came out hot and well prepared. They staff was very attentive. They kept the bar open until 10pm for our guest to drink during the bonfire. For the price, location, and what's included you can't beat it. The boathouse makes your wedding day perfect. If we had to do it again, we would definitely pick them, no question. Thanks Dan and Jane!!!
