Our intimate setting has been the scene for many an Adirondack elopement, wedding ceremony, commitment ceremony, honeymoon, and engagement. Read on what to expect with our unique location and how we can best help plan your special day.

Say Your Vows in Our Wooded, Lakeside Paradise With Your Favorite People by Your Side

Our private, unspoiled location near Friends Lake in the Adirondacks is perfectly conducive to elopements and small weddings. We specialize in parties from 2 to 16 people. There are several public rooms, sitting areas, and outdoor patios where guests can mingle. Although there are several outdoor locations available for the ceremony, the gardens are a magnificent setting for romantic nuptials.

You may invite 2 extra people not staying at the Fern Lodge to be at your elopement at no extra cost; guests staying with us are also welcome. If you’re having an off-season wedding, we may be able to accommodate more. Just ask, and we can chat about it! We have five rooms available at our intimate inn.

Popular places for guests to lounge during an Adirondack getaway at Fern Lodge include the Great Room sofas in front of the fireplace, the screened-in porch with a fireplace (especially in the evening, when you can hear the loons calling!), and by the lakeside fire pit with Adirondack chairs and the boathouse deck.

We’re in a Sweet Spot in the Adirondacks: Secluded, Yet Close to Where You Want to Go

Our ideal location in Chestertown not only offers the Adirondack scenery and out-of-the-city feel that many couples are looking for, but we’re also close to other southern Adirondack hotspots: we’re 22 minutes from Lake George, 23 minutes from Gore Mountain, and just over an hour from Lake Placid if you’re up for a leisurely drive or day trip.

Not to mention, we’re minutes from hiking trails and other Adirondack experiences fit for outdoorsy couples.

Need an Officiant? Flowers? Musicians? We Can Help With Vendors!

For an Adirondack elopement, we have our “house officiant” Susan Andonucci and other local justices to recommend that will come right here to our Adirondack hotel/resort to perform your ceremony. We’re also happy to put you in touch with florists, musicians, or a pastry shop for that picture-perfect, delicious wedding cake.

As we’ve hosted numerous weddings here over the years there are many vendors who we have worked with and are familiar with our property and layout.
