5 Historic Hotels in the Lake George Area to Host Your Next Meeting or Event | Brand Ave. studios

Two key questions are usually in mind when considering where to organize your next conference, retreat, meeting or group event: “Where are we going? and “where are we going?”

Look no further than Lake George, New York, where charming historic accommodations await that are sure to accentuate your next group destination experience.

“When hosting an event at a historic building or city landmark, event organizers can share the important aesthetic and cultural history of the destination, providing a sense of place and a connection to the past. . While these historic landmarks often represent something famous or important to residents and visitors, these types of places are storytellers in themselves, adding another dimension to events,” said Gina Mintzer, Executive Director of the Lake George Regional Convention and Visitors Bureau.
