What a spectacular venue! Our nephew had his wedding reception at The Erlowest this past weekend and everything was just perfect. The views from the ‘castle’ are beautiful and the cocktail hour on the patio was pleasant, relaxed and elegantly comfortable. Wait staff circulated with fried shrimp, chicken dumplings and other hot treats and there were two tables of toasted mixed nuts, fruit, vegetables beautifully displayed and cheeses and dips. Of course the bar was open and a table of champagne was available. As we moved into the huge ballroom, the setting was breathtaking with the beautiful chandeliers, large windows overlooking the lake, and the romantic candlelit table settings. Our meals were exceptional! A sweet squash soup and arugula salads were unusual and delicious. Warm rolls were perfect. Our table enjoyed steaks and chicken for entrees. The tender steaks were cooked just right and the stuffed chicken was yummy. Sides were a small scoop of creamy mashed potato, carrot and asparagus. Of course the wedding proceeded nicely with all the usual memorable moments. During the evening the waitstaff were attentive and unobtrusive, filling water glasses as needed and efficiently clearing dishes etc. It was a beautiful, special wedding that our family will remember for many years to come. The Erlowest is definitely a Lake George treasure and I’m so glad we got to participate in an event held there.
