I just wanted you to know how happy we all were with how Mike Bronowich’s event turned out on Saturday, 9/22/12. Everything was in place and ready to go at the designated time. Your friendly staff greeted us at the front desk, Marie was great with setting up the room and the bar and wait staff were pleasant and wonderful. Everything was just as we asked for it to be. The room was absolutely the perfect size. Glad we got the bigger room! Mike and his extended family stayed at the lodge. Grandkids were in the waterpark and in the suites the entire time and had a ball while we adults enjoyed ourselves!
Food was great, desserts were great. Bar was stocked as you said. Every detail was taken care of. Every single guest commented on the lobby, the fireplace, the “lodge” atmosphere. And I just heard from an employee that Mike told them the suite they had was top notch.
Please communicate to the staff that was there what a great job they did. I have talked to our President about meetings, team building, etc. that might be nice to have up there. I’ve also started to talk to our EAC people about having a Mohawk family event(s) there. My husband and I saw the waterpark and there were lots of smiling faces. So there may be more to come in 2013!
Thanks so much for all your help!

Our daughter had her wedding this July in Virgil with her rehearsal dinner, ceremony and reception at Gatherings. She and her husband had an evening cocktail party the night before the wedding under an outdoor tent and a breakfast the morning after the event at Hope Lake Lodge. The entire weekend was outstanding and we would like to compliment both Gatherings and Hope Lake Lodge for going above and beyond our expectations! Both these terrific establishments are hidden resources that provide amazing service for special events. After comparing prices for hotels in Cortland and Ithaca, we found Hope Lake Lodge to have summer rates similar to other area hotels while offering so many more amenities, such as Hope Lake and its hiking trails, waterslides, spa, shuttle to Gatherings – less than a mile away and atmosphere which surpasses anything in our area. Our many out-of-town wedding guests had a fabulous visit and enjoyed their weekend stay using the grounds, bar area and fabulous rooms. Gatherings and Hope Lake Lodge are a valuable asset to our area.
We want to thank everyone who helped us make the wedding weekend so memorable.

Thank you so much for working with our Cortland High School reunion group to help make our reunion even that much better. The classmates and family members who zipped and coasted just loved both.
I went down the coaster four times!!
Again, thank you for taking the time with setting this up and your special attention to us. It is much appreciated.
If I don’t host our 2012 company picnic at Greek Peak/Hope Lake Lodge & Park next year I’m in trouble! From the kids to the kids at heart, everyone enjoyed the variety of activities the resort offers. So happy to have this gem in our own backyard!

Our experience with Hope Lake Lodge was great. They were able to provide all the aspects I was looking for in our corporate event in one beautiful location. They had very nice lodge rooms, accommodating conference rooms, good food, an educational team building event and adventure fun for all of us to enjoy. They did all this with outstanding customer service by their seamless teams. While coordinating the event I felt like I was part of the family. I highly recommend Hope Lake Lodge for your next event.
Our Logistics team cannot thank you enough for your continued assistance in hosting our employees during the Binghamton flood recovery project. Your staff remained gracious at all times with our constant communications in the tracking of employee movement.
The breakfast and dinner servings offered are monumental for us in that we can insure everyone has the opportunity for nourishment at unusual hours. Your diligence with this is monumental to our team in eliminating much added stress and we are most grateful for that. This recovery project brought us over 600 mutual aid employees and contractors in addition to our local staff. Needless to say it has been a challenge. In addition to meals and housing for in house and field personnel, the need to implement a laundry system for employees with extended stays became evident early on.
