5 stars isn't even high enough. We just got married last week and everyone is still talking about how beautiful it was.

This venue is one of a kind. Everything about it is fantastic. The staff, the food, the location, the fire pit. There is nothing I could possibly complain about. Gail and Barb were so accommodating and helped us every step of the way.

Every vendor Gail recommended exceeded our every expectation. The band, the florist, the baker. I mean everything was perfect.

Thank you so much for letting us have the best time of our lives.

We will definitely be recommending this place to all our friends and family.

Mark and Barb and the entire team at Twin Lakes were amazing! They took care of everything for our special day. I received so many compliments on the food. Every item for the cocktail hour and everything on our dinner buffet was delicious and amazing!!!!! The bar was fully stocked and the drinks were never watered down. They even made special plates for the two children who attended and wanted plain pasta! The grounds are very well kept and VERY clean. Every single cabin on site has it's own bathroom, TV, AC and heat. We even got the honeymoon cabin with the heart shaped jacuzzi included in our package! My husband and I couldn't have asked for anything more!!!

Twin Lakes was a hidden jewel!!! The feeling of Dirty Dancing at your wedding. The ceremony site was amazing, nesseled at the bottom of the hill surrounded by the trees and the lake shining in the background. The food at the reception was delicous!!! Many of my party goers said it was the best wedding food they had ever had!!! They were also very receptive to my mother's Celiac Disease (intolerance to gluten) They had no problem going over the menu with me (numerous times) to insure that my mom could enjoy all of the food everyone else was!!! The cabins on the property are a little dated, but adorable and well worth being able to stay on the premise was a huge upside for many of my guests!!! Thank you Mark and your team for a great day and many memories!!!

As soon as we saw Twin Lakes, we knew it was the PERFECT spot for our wedding! The scenery is beautiful, and the resort is straight out of Dirty Dancing. We had our ceremony by the lakeside, our reception in the pavillion, and a huge bonfire on the lawn. Plus, we and our closest friends stayed onsite in the 14 cabins! Gail and her team created the perfect weekend for us!

From the start, we knew we could trust Gail to create a spectacular experience. When we asked what was included in the open bar, she pointed to their bar and said "all of that." The venue almost under-values itself, even their highest-end package was less than we wanted. We ended up adding on multiple passed hors d'oeuvres, a seafood station, and a pasta station with a chef attending for cocktail hour. For dinner, they accommodated our request of a family-style meal, so that everyone could sample all of the bounty. Everyone raved about the food! The wine selection was also excellent.

Leading up to the big day, I wish I could say Twin Lakes was everything I needed. Their responsiveness left a lot to be desired. I felt like the team was understaffed and overwhelmed with the summer business. We had to ask questions multiple times and waited weeks for answers. However, everything was settled in the end, and went off without a hitch! Gail is clearly working hard with her team to bring the place up to Manhattan standards (and we're pretty demanding)!

The only other negative of the planning process was the lack of hotels in the area! It was tough to find a hotel able to accommodate our block: the nice ones require a two-night minimum, only a lower-end hotel was able to give us a block for one night.

In the end, I can't imagine having my wedding anywhere else! This spot is just paradise, a perfect escape from the city for us and our friends, and convenient enough for all of our out-of-town guests who made a weekend out of the trip and enjoyed the local sights.

Highly recommended!!!

Absolutely recommend Twin Lake ! They are by far the most flexible place you can find. What ever you want to do as long as it's legal you can do it. We had the bonfire option and it was not a disappointment, our photographer got some of the best shots of the night there.
We were married on a Saturday and the Wednesday before it had snowed so we had to make contingency plans for all the "What if's" and Gail and Barbara were fantastic about putting our minds to ease for the day of :)
If i had one complaint it was that the hot water and heat went off in some of the cabins and bungalows. Gail was very proactive the next day and discounted anyone whose rooms were affected.
The food is AMAZING!!! we had the sea food station (raw bar) and Mashed potato bar, and our guests could not stop raving. The food was delicious and no one complained, they had fantastic vegetarian options and helped you make sense of your menu. We did the Brunch the next morning and it was again amazing!! the egg station was Flawless, their head chef was there and he is fantastic!!! I cannot say enough how much we loved his food!! Again SOOO accommodating!!!
We visited seven places and Twin Lakes was everything we wanted and the price was beyond acceptable. We highly recommend them!

Twin lakes was absolutely wonderful as a location and caterer for our wedding. The only issues we had were minor ones pointed out after the wedding and reception was over. They were the wait staff being a bit too pushy in taking plates prior to guests finishing their food, as well as hovering around the tables, waiting for people to finish. That aside, the bar staff and planning staff were absolutely amazing.

We were very happy with Twin Lakes as our wedding venue.
Gail (manager) was wonderful to work with leading up to the wedding, and Barbara was so great the day of - making sure we had everything we needed (and being very pro-active which was great) and kept us on schedule.
We had our ceremony lakeside and then reception in the pavilion, for about 145 guests. It was the perfect size - and we also had a big after party at the bonfire area complete with DJs and more lighting. We were up till dawn!
The pool is great, and we organized a brunch on Sunday morning for guests to come eat and lounge at the pool. Worked out well.
Food was very good, we had an all gluten-free menu and were very happy. Basically we just picked items off of their regular menu that were already gluten-free.
We did not like their house wines so upgraded and they were able to get us 2 reds and a white from a list that we provided = very good!
We LOVED staying on site and had our friends stay in the cabins too. We used other B&Bs and Kingston hotels for family and other friends (with kids, etc), but selected friends who we thought would come for both Fri and Sat nights, and enjoy the after party. We packed the cabins and it was so wonderful to not have to drive anywhere.
The owner Steve is great too - when we were doing our photos during dinner, he gave us a bike for a prop and it ended up being my favorite picture.
They were flexible with check-out time too which was great.
The per person charge is quite a bit, but, they really managed the day very well and we didn't have to hire a day-of coordinator.
Very happy!

Twin lakes made our ceremony amazing however leading up to it was not quite as smooth. We arrived for our scheduled meeting the week before the wedding and the site manager had no idea who we were and did not have out information readily available...panic for any bride!! The day of the wedding our bridal suite to get ready in had a clogged toilet and we never got a drink brought to us as promised! Some small disappointments but overall we were satisfied and had a beautiful wedding!
