Garnet Hill Lodge was named for a nearby garnet mine, which opened in 1893. By 1928, however, the mine’s riches were in decline and it soon ceased operation. The Loghouse was built in 1937 as a guest house and restaurant. It became the Adirondack Inn in 1970 and eventually evolved into a resort community. It underwent renovation in the 1980s; however, many original features still remain, such as the impressive stone fireplace.

All we could have asked for and more

We knew this was the place we wanted to get married as soon as we drove up. Nicole and all the staff were amazingly helpful and accommodating with all our ideas and requests. We wanted a low-key ... Read more affair that was also nice and enjoyable and Garnet Hill delivered on all counts. All our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the celebration and the venue. It was especially important to us to extend our party over the whole weekend, and being able to have a private celebration at GHL was exactly what we wanted. Our wedding weekend was everything we could have asked for and more. The staff are very professional and took care of all our needs on the wedding day, and we did not have to worry about anything and were able to relax and enjoy our celebration. The food throughout was absolutely amazing! From breakfast to BBQ to the food for the reception, we did not have a bad meal the entire time. The kitchen accommodated all the food allergy concerns, and the Polenta the chef recommended for our reception was exceptionally good. The maître d', Lucy, made sure we were well taken care of throughout. We really can't say enough good things about Garnet Hill. We were also able to stay within our budget, and the prices were entirely reasonable, unlike at so many other places that we looked at. Nicole and staff answered all our questions and put us at ease in planning our event. We always felt taken care of and respected. Garnet Hill was the perfect place to have our queer wedding in the Adirondacks.

Our wedding at Garnet Hill was perfect. We wanted a private venue, a place that allowed our guests to experience the beauty of the Adirondacks, and that's exactly what we got. It's a stunning place to ... Read more stay, to dine, and to unplug. We found Garnet Hill 14 months before our wedding, and communication was everything I needed and more over that time. Nicole put my mind at ease by answering all of my questions thoroughly, including some I know I asked more than once, and was there to make sure the entire weekend went exactly the way we wanted. Lucy and the banquet, maintenance, and bar staff helped ensure my vision was executed, and I felt so comfortable after so many months of planning that everything was in good hands! The staff helped execute a perfect Friday night welcome BBQ (the food was absolutely delicious, the kitchen staff did an amazing job, as did the bar staff) and ensured our guests got just the right introduction to the Central Adirondacks by recommending activities for during the day Saturday before the reception. The owner even led a guided hike Saturday morning! After breakfast, the staff had to transform the Lodge and grounds on ceremony day and set up the ton of boxes of decorations we brought. It was more perfect than I imagined it could be, including all the little details I envisioned for the reception. So many staff members played a part in it, and for that, I'm so truly grateful! The food was excellent - a feat hard to manage for nearly 100 guests - and the pies were the perfect dessert. They served the bride and groom early, which I very much appreciated :) And breakfast Sunday was amazing - great food, great service, and a perfect way to end the celebration. Great views and scenery are abundant in the Adirondacks, and Garnet Hill Lodge has those, but it's such a incredibly special place, and the people running it make it that way. It was our perfect wedding spot, and I can't wait to keep going back for getaways and anniversaries!

The whole team at GHL was amazing. During the planning process Nicole was always available to answer questions and offer suggestions about how to make our special day run smoothly. The team at GHL was ... Read more flexible and open to our ides/ready to make what we wanted happen. When it came time to go to Garnet Hill for the wedding, we discovered that everyone working that weekend was friendly, polite, and happy to assist us with anything we needed. If we could have a wedding every year, we would pick GHL over and over again!
