The Most Romantic Adirondack Honeymoon, Elopement, or Wedding Ceremony
The Fern Lodge has been the scene of many an Adirondack honeymoon, engagements, elopements and wedding/commitment ceremonies.
For receptions of more than 20 persons please consider the nearby Burlap and Beams Wedding Barn Venue for the quintessential Adirondack wedding.
The Fern Lodge is a very intimate and romantic atmosphere – both inside and out! We specialize in parties from 2 persons to 20 persons. There are many public rooms of the Lodge, sitting areas, and patios outside. Favorite places during an Adirondack romantic getaway include the Great Room sofas in front of the fireplace, the outdoor front screened in porch with fireplace, especially in the evening when you can here the loons call. There is a fire pit lakeside with Adirondack chairs and the boathouse deck. All locations are perfect for an engagement or a wedding ceremony (for up to 20 guests.)
For an elopement, we have several local justices to recommend that will come right here to our Adirondack hotel to perform your ceremony. We are also happy to help put you in touch with florists, musicians or a Pastry shop. View wedding contacts. We are happy to assist you in personalizing your wedding to create a lifetime of memories! And as a gay friendly lodge here in the Adirondacks, we also have the resources to help plan your beautiful wedding or commitment ceremony.
