The Old Daley is like working with family that has got it all going on in a major way!!! From the very moment we walked into the venue and were greeted by Janice and Elise we were impressed. All who we worked with—Marty, Janice, Elise, Stephanie and Chef Jeff—are gracious,... Read More personable, positive, knowledgeable, helpful and tasteful. The whole experience with them convinced us they truly strived to make our wedding day the most magical, smooth-running event customized to meet our needs, taste and dreams. They walked us through the process step-by-step. They answered every question with a level of knowledge and problem solving that comes with a deep level of experience in the business. Our custom tasting was an amazing meal and our change requests were met with positivity and Stephanie delivered alternatives that steered the menu to a delightful level. Elise was a tireless angel in every way from day one up to our wedding day, walking us through every detail and delivering above and beyond. On our wedding day we arrived to see an overwhelming array of flowers! The wedding of the night before had left them all and the staff kept them out in case we wanted to have them to add to our own! All of our Old Daley friends were there the entire time making sure it flowed perfectly and we could see in their faces why they do this. They were all having a great time! Marty prepared a special plate of appetizers for us during the cocktail hour and served us just to make sure we remembered to eat something! Elise was consistent in making sure every moment of the day flowed with grace. And Janice, Stephanie and Jeff made sure it looked magical and tasted fabulous. There is no question in our minds and our guests that in the Albany area, this is THE PLACE and THE PEOPLE to work with. We made the RIGHT CHOICE and we have a LIFETIME of amazing memories, thanks to these great people!

From the second we walked into Old Daley on Crooked Lake my (now) husband and I knew this was the place we wanted to get married at. Not only is it unique and beautiful but all of their staff members (especially Marty, Janice and Elise) are AMAZING! I know for a fact that they... Read More make EVERY Bride and Groom feel this way, almost like they are planning their own Wedding. They take great pride in every event they host and add just enough love to make everyone feel special. All of our guests kept on telling us how beautiful the venue was and how AMAZING the food was! They couldn't believe how delicious everything was for Wedding Food (which from my experience isn't always the case). I couldn't imagine having our special day at any other venue. Everything turned out perfectly and we are FOREVER grateful to everyone at Old Daley on the Crooked Lake for making our day as wonderful as you did! Thank you! xoxoxoxo

Our wedding at the Old Daley on Crooked Lake was more than we could have dreamed of. The setting of the Lake House and the weather were amazing, and everything the day of went without a hitch. The quality of the food, wait service and coordination the day of was excellent.... Read More Throughout the process the staff was professional and helpful. For the money we invested, I expected the coordinator to be more responsive and offer more specific guidance before the wedding. She missed a couple emails I had sent and almost got our cake flavors wrong. I expected her to volunteer more of her knowledge to help us make decisions such as how many cases of champagne to order. Indeed, she holds this knowledge and ultimately shared it to help us with our decisions. The coordinator's skills shined the brightest the day of the wedding - she guided everyone to be where they needed, when they needed, providing a calming presence for a nervous and excited wedding party. She worked well with our vendors also. We received many compliments on the beautiful setting, delicious food and yummy drinks. I would absolutely recommend this venue to anyone for their special day.

My [now] husband and I got married here a year ago and it was absolutely spectacular! It was everything we wanted in a wedding venue. The only upsetting part was that they did not pack any food for us to take home at the end of the night, which is shocking since most places... Read More provide this service. We got back to our hotel room hungry. Nor did they have any cocktail hour food available for us. It was a bummer after we paid all that money to feed people except ourselves. Otherwise, we loved this place. Janice, Marty and Elise are so sweet and enthusiastic and treat you like family.

We cannot say enough good things about the Crooked Lake House. With not many options for a wedding venue do to our size of a guest list, Janice and Elise reassured us we could make it work, and they sure did! Everything about our day was perfect, there was no page unturned.... Read More Elise was there for anything we needed at anytime during the wedding and the entire process leading up to our big day. We cannot thank everyone of their amazing staff for such a perfect day and an amazing job all around. I don't think one person could have left our wedding hungry, and everyone raved how delicious everything was. People kept telling us we probably wouldn't get to eat out meals because we would be too busy but I cleared my entire plate and it was amazing! We are so happy we chose such a beautiful place with caring and friendly staff. We would recommend them to anyone looking to get married! 9/26/15 was a night to remember!

I could write an entire essay on just how wonderful The Crooked Lake House is, but for the viewers sake I will keep it short and sweet. Not only is the Crooked Lake house a stunning and breathtaking location but there are not words to describe just how wonderful the staff and... Read More owners are. The food never fails to be delicious and perfect, the staff is fun, friendly, and accommodating, and over all they know how to throw one heck of a party! Crooked Lake clearly loves what they do and will go above and beyond to meet your needs and make your dream day come true. It is clear the owners are passionate about the venue and this reflects in their staff. My wedding planner, Kyla, was just perfect and made the entire process not just easy but fun too! I never dreamed my wedding could be as spectacular and fabulous as it was and CLH made it all happen

How can I describe our experience at the Crooked Lake House? Amazing from start to finish, beautiful, perfect.

Where do I begin? From start to finish, our planner Elise was incredibly helpful in the planning process, answering all of our questions…and trust me we had a ton! The venue is absolutely stunning: every single guest raved about it. They only host one event per day so we had... Read More the entire property. Tons of room for guests, so many amazing locations for photos. We were treated like royalty. They were super flexible with menu choices and creating special plates for those with food restrictions.

The venue is open for dinner in the winter and we're looking forward to attending!

My husband and I recently got married at Crooked Lake this past weekend. I do not have a single complaint! Everything went smoothly from rearranging the order of the bridal party processing down the aisle five minutes before the wedding started to unexpected guests showing up.... Read More Our wedding planner handled everything without involving myself (the bride) which kept my stress level to a minimum.

We couldn't be happier we chose the Old Daley Inn at Crooked Lake for our wedding ceremony and reception. The space alone is worth every penny. Set alongside a beautiful lake with picturesque trees, the rustic Old Daley Inn is stunning from the moment you drive up. Our... Read More pristine ceremony took place on the lake on a gorgeous day. Although we brought a few decorations for outside, they were simply the cherries on top. The setting needed little help in taking our breath away, both in person and in our photographs. Inside is just as glamorous. The Oak Room, where our cocktail hour was, is right out of a movie: stone walls and wooden furniture illuminated beautifully by the natural light coming in from the windows. The reception hall overlooks the lake, which was quite nice for us since we chose to have our ceremony there too. The photos on their website don't do the space enough justice. It is more beautiful in person!! And the staff...the staff was extraordinary. Elise was our event planner. She guided us gently and generously through any questions we had for her and the ins and outs of Crooked Lake. Elise also provided us with great feedback about the recommended professionals we hired for the day of. On the day of the wedding, we never felt rushed, late, or pressured. Elise took us through the day with the utmost ease and class, always remaining calm, collected, and upbeat. We came to value her opinion greatly and trusted her with plenty. She worked seamlessly with our photographer and DJ to ensure we had the best day ever. In addition to Elise, the wait staff hired were all very flexible, quick on their toes, and especially kind to all our guest (including my very Italian mother). Getting married at Crooked Lake was a dream come true. Receptions here have been a family tradition for many many years. We were so so happy to keep the tradition alive. If I could give it 10 stars, I would!!
