Quantcast

Set among the Adirondack Mountains, Burlap & Beams is a truly magical place, and we will always remember the incredibly day we had here. I cannot speak highly enough of Terri's willingness to work with us as we planned for our big day. After our initial booking, we had an unexpected conflict that required us to change the date. Terri was so kind and encouraging. Without hesitating she helped us re-book. We were working with several vendors who traveled from Philadelphia with us, and as the planning process progressed there were plenty of questions that came up. Terri was always ready and willing to exchange emails or chat on the phone in order to help. The venue itself is such a special place. Terri and her husband have put so much love into every inch of the property-- we especially loved the glow of the patio between the main barn and reception tent as the sun went down. We were fortunate that the rain on our wedding day let up just as we arrived and gave way to beautiful low hanging clouds on the mountains and a stunning sun set later on. With that said, Burlap & Beams is set up so that even in the rain you have plenty of wonderful options for the day. I would encourage anyone looking for an Adirondack venue to consider Terri's place!

Burlap and Beams was a huge disappointment! The grounds are rustic and the barn for the wedding ceremony was nice, but the dressing rooms left a lot to be desired. The bathrooms were too far away and were the portable kind. It was raining and in heels, I almost slipped several times on the narrow slippy portable steps up into the bathroom. They were also totally inflexible. Any little thing we asked them for was received with irritation and no response. The worst part was that at exactly the moment that our time ended, they were clapping their hands at us and telling us to clear out. Very rude!! They could have given us 10 or 15 minutes to wrap up conversations and begin to move out. We also had to set up all of our own tables and do all the decorating ourselves. Very over priced for what you got. My son who got married two months earlier at Francis Farms was wonderful in comparison. Would not recommend this place.

Burlap and Beams responded with the following comments:
We are sorry you feel this way. We do tours with all couples and they only book with complete knowledge of our Adirondack venue, our rustic grooms and bridal rooms and restroom trailers. We only use high end Ritz wedding restroom trailers. They are actually top of the line restroom trailers not porta pottys. They come with running water, vanitys music granite, music and heat. The rain can make any surface slippery and I am sorry that happened to you. As far as leaving when the wedding reception is over. In our contract we discuss that guests need to move on to after party locations due to cleanup and wedding setups on Sundays. We rent our venue out for 6 hours and want our couples and guests to have a nice time but due to cleanup and vendors packing up and safety reasons guests need to head out after the wedding. We are very lucky that we are close by to Lake George where many couples head to for an after party if the 6 hours is not enough time. Thank you for your input and we hope you accept our sincere apologies. Warmly, Burlap and Beams.
