Valerie and Anne were amazing. They did everything exactly how we wanted it done and the day was perfect. They communicated with our other vendors and worked and coordinated with them to make the day go smooth. I don't think one thing went wrong the whole day. The day after the wedding, all of our flowers and the personal decorations we brought in were all neatly organized for us to bring home. Everything was perfect

We could not be more happy with the Harbor Hotel staff and the gorgeous venue and service we received for our wedding day and weekend! The staff was so incredibly helpful, accommodating, detail-oriented and friendly! My guests spoke all night about how beautiful the hotel is and how amazing the staff was during their stay. We stayed in the most beautiful suite with all of the best amenities and accommodations! The wedding and reception were held in the ballroom- it was an absolute dream. We had a vision of the "best possible" day, and the WGHH exceeded our expectations and made our day more special and more beautiful than we ever imagined!! We HIGHLY recommend the WGHH for a weekend stay, dinner, or any special event!

Heather, Anne, and Rene are the Charlie’s Angels of weddings! The attention to detail was unparalleled, from the signature drink to the candy buffet to the photo booth to finding a special place to hang a Kramer-esque portrait of the Seinfeld-loving groom painted by the mother-of-the-bride! We got married on the Sunday of Labor Day, the third wedding of a whirlwind weekend for the staff. However, they never showed any signs of fatigue and made us and our guests feel like it was the first time all over again in their genuine enthusiasm – yet their professionalism was polished. We planned the entire destination wedding from 450 miles away and it went flawlessly. We arrived on a Wednesday afternoon and turned an entire SUV of wedding accessories over to Heather, who had meticulous notes from Anne that she added to. There were crates that I could barely begin to describe and Heather had already guessed the contents. Last minute requests (could we have access to a balcony room to get a shot of the wedding dress blowing in the breeze with the harbor in the background?) were accommodated with a smile, speed, and complete grace.

The food was absolutely fantastic. We visited for a menu tasting nine months before the wedding and were blown away (this is from a former food reviewer). I had to manage my own expectations, as cooking for six is much easier than cooking for 100+ at the reception, and yet, the food was just as fabulous as our first taste!

During the outdoor ceremony the gardens were in full bloom and blocked the parking lot. Our guests loved being able to stroll by the harbor and enjoy the view of the boats and provided an incredible backdrop for photos. The indoor reception was artfully arranged to create a beautiful, romantic atmosphere.

The most valuable thing about booking your wedding with Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel is the peace of mind. Once we turned everything over to the events team, we were able to focus on family and friends - priceless!

We were married at the watkins Glen harbor hotel on Sunday. It was a wonderful venue, the food was delicious and the wedding coordinators were terrific. We both live in Boston but I grew up near the area. I selected this hotel because it is elegant and it could accommodate a lot of our out of town guests. I must say that the service for the wedding was over the top. The coordinators (heather, Renee and Anne) all did a fabulous job to make sure that the event ran smoothly. The chef who cooked our wedding dinner did an excellent job - everyone commented how perfect the food was cooked. I would recommend to other couples that this is an excellent venue and you and your guest will be thrilled to attend a wedding at the harbor hotel.

We had a wonderful time for our wedding at the hotel. We held our ceremony outdoors there, and all the staff were very helpful. They were all professional without being too "stiff" and we are happy to say nothing went wrong thanks to the great staff. We really had everything done for us, we just showed up and got married.

Valerie and Kristen made planning a wedding easy. I was planning our reception from out of town, and they were flexible with meeting our needs and working with us. Our ceremony space was gorgeous and they did a fantastic job setting everything up and making it better than I had imagined. The food was better than your average wedding food and all of my guests loved it. It's a beautiful venue right on the lake and worth the price for the value you recieve.

We were so incredibly happy with the Harbor Hotel. Words can't even describe how happy we felt that we got married there. Everything came out perfectly! Val and Kristen worked so hard to prepare beforehand and it was very evident throughout the whole day. They were so easy to work with, flexible and super helpful. Whenever we had questions or needed guidance they were there for us. They were prompt about responding to emails and phone calls. They gave us recommendations when necessary but definitely let us do whatever we wanted to make our day as personalized as we could. Although it's on the pricier side, you get what you pay for (and more honestly). I think the only negative was that the hotel rooms are pricey for guests but they waive the 2 night minimum for weddings which is nice for family that live closer. As far as the wedding day itself, everything went as planned. Val ran the show all day and made it completely stress free for us. She wasn't pushy at all and if we needed to do something (i.e. cake cutting), she would nicely come to us and happily say, "ready to cut the cake?" It was so nice to have her there. They let us stay outside for a while after the wedding was over and people were drinking and playing games out there. It was SUCH a blast! It was seriously such an amazing day and night and we couldn't thank them enough for making our day so perfect!!!
