Hear From Our Guests
Everything was Truly Perfect
From the moment we met the staff during our initial tour of the venue, we felt so comfortable and at ease throughout the process. We cannot say enough about how professional, kind, patient, and understanding the staff was throughout the process. Alexis promptly addressed all our needs and any questions and concerns we had with such warmth and sincerity. On the day of our wedding, everything was truly perfect. The staff was so attentive to us and our guests’ every need. The food was incredible, the views were breathtaking, and we could not have asked for anything more. We highly recommend the Inn at Erlowest, not only for weddings, but also for a getaway weekend as the rooms and grounds are truly beautiful. To this day, we are so grateful to the entire staff at the Inn at Erlowest. We appreciate all their hard work and dedication so much – it did not go unnoticed! We could not be happier!
Gorgeous View Overlooking Lake George
My wedding day couldn’t have been more perfect with the help of the amazing Erlowest staff who oversaw each detail of the day. They even customized a brunch menu for my Friday morning wedding and were extremely flexible. Not to mention the gorgeous view overlooking Lake George and the stunning castle. Would highly recommend Erlowest and their staff for any event!
Loved the View!
We recently had our wedding here and it was top notch! The team were awesome to work with. They made everything beyond easier that we ever expected. Guests loved the view, enjoyed the scenery and everything went off without a hitch. The best part? A VERY calm mother of the bride knowing that the staff had everything under control. This is absolutely worth every penny, and they can work within your budget for a beautiful, amazing wedding We are so appreciative of the team for truly making our day special, and making US feel special! Excellent service, yummy food, and super organized. They are super accessible, and honestly makes wedding planning fun! Thank you everyone at The Erlowest! We are truly blessed to have met you all!
The place alone is absolutely breathtaking, but the staff and team were beyond accommodating. Juliana was my life saver through the whole wedding process. Any question, concern or advice I had she was always right there. The food was amazing. I wish we could get married all over again. I cannot say enough positive things about the Inn!
Everything was Perfect
I could write a novel about how fantastic the Erlowest is. From the hotel rooms to the food to the location – just everything is perfect. Then you have the team on site who are incredible. The staff are the nicest people I have ever met. The email chains, phone calls, in-person visits they are always professional, always smiling, and will make any request work. The staff the day of your wedding are also some of the happiest people you will ever meet. One touch that has stuck with me is after the cocktail hour and we were waiting to go into the reception they brought the groom and I some food in case we didn’t get to taste it. It’s the little things like that, that really set apart one venue from the next. In terms of cost I love the flexibility so you don’t spend an arm and a leg – you can add and take out of packages so you stay in budget. Then the grounds – privacy was important to us and there is no other place I can think of that does it better. Secluded on a lake in a castle – not sure what tops that! Thank you to the whole Erlowest team for making my wedding experience unreal!
Recommend the Erlowest to Anyone
I cannot recommend the Erlowest enough to anyone looking to have an amazing wedding experience. The venue itself is gorgeous, the food was amazing and the staff are really the reason our day was so perfect. Looking back I have over 100 emails throughout the planning process, each one prompt, polite and professional even while planning her OWN wedding for just the week before ours! Although this venue does multiple weddings a weekend you would never know it from the time and attention you receive from the staff. Our guests couldn’t believe the views from the Castle and how convenient it was to have everything in one location for the whole weekend. We would recommend the Erlowest to anyone looking for a memorable wedding experience for yourself and for your guests
