Conferences + Events

What other venue is located at the heart of a 6 million acre “forever wild” forest preserve that’s bigger than Yellowstone, Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Glacier and the Great Smokies National Parks combined? The spectacular lakeside campus at Paul Smith’s College offers a rare combination of scenic tranquility and adventurous recreation, making it the ideal spot for groups large and small. Our tradition of gracious hospitality and culinary expertise dates to 1859 when the property was founded as a pioneering wilderness resort hotel. Guests today enjoy the same authentic Adirondack experience, ensuring a memorable and meaningful event.

We ask that all event inquiries be directed to Patrick Allard at We are available to help you while using the utmost respect and caution for health and safety.
