The Perfect Adirondack Wedding

Great Pines by Weekender has multiple event spaces to choose from: indoor and outdoor; large and small; lakeside, fireside, or both! View some of the idyllic areas on our grounds below, then meet with our event coordinator to share the vision you have for your wedding; together, we’ll decide which spaces best fit your needs, and curate a perfect experience for you and your group!

Bridal Suite

Surrounded by exquisite mountain scenery, we can transform our Lantern Room into a spacious bridal suite featuring ample seating, large mirrors, and even a coffee or mimosa station, making your day magical for the entire bridal party right from the start.

Honeymoon Cabin

Our secluded Honeymoon Cabin includes an in-room jacuzzi tub, fireplace, and sitting area; plus 2 Adirondack chairs and mountain views from the covered porch. Go directly from your lakeside reception to your mountainous honeymoon, or simply stay a night or two before jetting off to your next destination. And don’t forget to bring Fido—our Honeymoon Cabin is pet friendly!

Lean-To Restaurant & Bar

Our large, on-site restaurant and bar is normally open to the public, but it can be rented out for any event, from a rehearsal dinner to a welcome party to a full ceremony and reception. Plus, with our in-house catering services, you’re able to fully customize your menu to your and your guests’ liking.

The Lodge Great Room

With a backdrop of Fourth Lake and the surrounding mountains, the Great Room comes with stunning panoramic views and is spacious enough for larger indoor receptions—up to 50 people with a dance floor or 100 people without—plus the option to add-on the Fireplace Room or Lodge Bar for extra space.

The Lodge Fireplace Room

A cozy, rustic area with a large fireplace, several leather sofas, and an adjoining outdoor covered porch facing Fourth Lake. Walk down the aisle outdoors, then enjoy grazing tables and cocktail hour next to the fire for an intimate wedding celebration with your closest friends and family.

Lantern Room

With space for up to 30 guests, the Lantern Room can be used for smaller receptions, rehearsal dinners, or converted into a large bridal suite, depending on your needs.

Outlook Deck

A spacious area outside The Lean-To Restaurant and Bar that is perfect for more casual warm-weather lakeside weddings, complete with a luxury outdoor grilling kitchen. Includes a nearby fire pit, and can be added on as extra space for your Lean-To Lawn reception.

The Overlook

For smaller outdoor weddings, the overlook is secluded and gives you great views of the lake. Guests can have easy access to their rooms directly from your reception, making for comfortable and convenient celebrating.

Forest Landing

A magical, secluded area, surrounded by mountains, with your very own “door to the forest”—perfect for photo ops! Our Forest Landing can handle up to 200 people, with options to rent our large tent, tables, and any other needed items.

Lean-To Lawn

For the largest weddings, our Lean-To Lawn is the perfect outdoor space, complete with lake views, a nearby fire pit, close access to our Lean-To Restaurant and Bar and the Outlook Deck (for extra room), and options to rent a large tent, tables, and other items. If “lakeside extravaganza” is what you’re going for, the Lean-To Lawn is for you!

Courtyard Lawn

A secluded grassy area facing Fourth Lake with a small, natural arbor. A ceremony on our Courtyard Lawn gives you plenty of space and incredible photo ops!

Open Docks

Design a unique wedding on the water with a ceremony on our open docks. Panoramic lake views and incredible photo ops will kick off your marriage in a way you—and your guests—will never forget!
Fully Customizable

Menu Options

Does your dream wedding include kicking off your celebration weekend with a welcome party for guests or an elegant rehearsal dinner?

When it comes to your refreshments, your imagination is the only limit!
Experiences & Lodging

For Your Guests

Beyond the event itself, Great Pines offers curated experiences to help make your wedding memorable for both you and your guests: relax while paddleboarding on the lake, push yourselves while mountain biking on nearby trails, or enjoy nature while hiking through captivating vistas right outside your door. With options to reserve individual rooms or full blocks of our hotel, Great Pines can comfortably accommodate all of your guests’ needs and make your wedding a weekend they’ll look back on fondly for years to come, too!
