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!!!

I just spent the best weekend at your lodge for my wedding. We were spoiled rotten, along with the rest of us of my family!!! I have to thank our server Adrien(sp??) for everything he did all weeekend. His service on Thursday night during my family's dinner was impecable - he remembered everything!!! To his service on Saturday night where he drove my twin sister down to our lodge, then helped them set up candles and champagne, then went and got them ice and their toasting glasses. Clearly, he went over and beyond his call of duty and I can't tell enough how greatful we are for everthing he did. Also, the bartender was absolutely fabulous!!! I can't remember his name, but he just celebrated his 1 yr anniversary with his wife and he is a Boston Red Sox fan. . . well we are a big fan of his!! He spoiled us rotten and made sure that every single one of our guests were taken care of. There were 2 female servers who also spolied me, the bride, rotten! They made sure I had plenty to drink & eat, plus placed a bandage on my foot when I was bleeding from my shoes cutting in to my 'non-stop dancing' toes! Finally, Jayne and Dan couldn't have been any better!!! I have to rave about Jayne! Ever since I contacted her and Dan, they were always there when I
needed them. In the end, my entire family couldn't agree more that there couldn't have been a better place to go to besides the Lodges at the Cresthaven and the Boat House Resteraunt. We can't wait to come back again and celebrate our next family function!!!! Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts, everyone truly made our wedding a day one we will never forget!!!!

My husband wanted to get married in my hometown of Lake George because he fell in love with the lake and mountains. He's from Southern California so we wanted his friends and family to appreciate this beautiful area as much as we do. We wanted a unique venue that had an Adirondack theme where we could have a beach ceremony and that's exactly what we found at the Boathouse Restaurant. We stayed at one of the lodges that overlooked the beach where our ceremony was held and it was perfect for us girls to get ready. We had a small wedding (85 guests) so after the beach ceremony, people moved to the upstairs deck bar area for the cocktail hour, and then we were able to fit everyone outside on the lower deck for dinner where we could hear the water splashing against the beach just under our feet. Then we moved the party inside the beautiful restaurant for dancing and cake cutting. We loved the fact that we had separate areas for each part of our reception. We didn't need to move tables out of the way and we had the largest dance floor out of any venue we visited.

Jayne & Dan were extremely helpful throughout the whole planning process, especially since we were planning it from California! They catered to all of our needs and suggested different options so we were aware of all of our choices. They let us modify some menu choices to fit our preferences. The wedding day itself went off without a hitch and we owe it all to Jayne, Dan, and the rest of the wonderful staff at the Boathouse Restaurant who got every little detail right. Our guests are still talking about how it was the classiest wedding that they had ever been to, yet it was very affordable for us who were paying for it ourselves. Also, the Boathouse has so many scenic options for photos, we were thrilled at how great they came out. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this wonderful venue to anyone - you won't be disappointed!

The Lodges at Cresthaven was a perfect wedding venue! We opted for a Fall wedding in late October to take advantage of the fabulous colours of leaves both on-site and in view across pristine Lake George. In the months leading up to the wedding, their amazing staff (especially Jayne!) quickly and knowledgably answered dozens of emails from us working out the many details of our wedding (we live four hours away in New York City, so we could only come visit in person a limited number of times). We really wanted a venue where all of our guests that chose to could stay on-site, and the cabins at The Lodges at Cresthaven are numerous and luxurious. Our wedding had a true destination feel. Dan, the chef at The Boathouse Restaurant, worked with us to create a menu that was entirely gluten-free to accommodate the Bride’s wheat allergy. All of the food was delicious! The gorgeous vistas, including a private beach, made amazing backdrops for our wedding photos. Our reception in The Boathouse Restaurant overlooking the water was perfect in every way. The cocktail hour was held in the patio, and the main reception took place the main dinning room. The space is perfect for a smaller reception like ours that had 63 guests, a bar, a live band, and a dance floor. The service on the day of the wedding was impeccable; the staff was especially helpful with setting up decorations, serving of the food and drinks, and packing up at the end of the day. We strongly recommend The Lodges at Cresthaven to any couples looking for a unique and customizable wedding day!

Dan and Jayne were a pleasure to work with. The venue alone is worth booking -- landscaping is top notch, breathtaking ceremony view and dinner literally over the lake. Everyone loved the food! My only complaint is that the price can really add up -- you need to pay extra for chairs, tent, a place to get ready -- just keep that in mind. My husband and I were so glad we paid a little extra than we had planned for this venue. It lived up to all our expectations.

I loved it there everything went perfect. The only thing is when you plan your wedding make sure everything is planed out in 2 months in advance because then you'll forget things and its your day to relax not stress so enjoy it. <3
