Ceremonies and Events on Lake Ontario



Hello everyone at Bayshore!

I am so excited to have the opportunity to share some photos with you and some of my thoughts about our wedding that happened at Bayshore on June 21st. First, every single staff member from George, to the wait staff, to the girls that were there to help me throughout our rehearsal and wedding day were so professional, helpful and just plain nice people! Everyone was so helpful in getting our room perfect for the day and even helping bustle my dress when my bridesmaids couldn't figure it out! We have even received so many compliments from our guests with regards to how wonderful the staff was, how excellent the food was, and most of all how beautiful Bayshore was!! We are from Utica so none of our guests had seen the venue before the wedding day, so everyone was surprised and stunned at its beauty! If there is anyone who is on the fence about whether or not to go with Bayshore for their wedding, they should not think twice! It really is worth it!
I could go on forever with praise for your staff and Bayshore!

Thanks again for everything!
Sean and Stephanie Roberts



I would like to give a huge thank you to Bayshore, especially George, Shari, and Katie, who made our wedding day go off without a hitch! The food was excellent, the service was superb, and we felt very taken care of the entire time. The grounds were beautiful, and the staff did an amazing job drying the chairs and walkway after it down poured 30 minutes prior to the start of the ceremony. Our guests have commented on how the whole evening flowed seamlessly, and it was one of the best weddings they've ever been to. And of course, the amazing lightning strike at the exact moment we kissed for the first time as husband and wife- once in a lifetime, and only at a venue like Bayshore was this even possible! We would highly recommend Bayshore to any couple looking to have a gorgeous, fun, and flawless wedding day!

Michele and Brandon Sleight



Thank you so much to everyone at Bayshore for making our wedding day so memorable. We could not imagine having our wedding and reception anywhere else. The location was gorgeous, the grounds and facilities were very well kept, the food was delicious, and the staff was friendly and professional. Throughout the planning process, George was there every step of the way to answer all of our questions and accommodate any requests that we had. On our wedding day, the Bayshore was so well organized that everything just flowed. It felt great to relax and know that they had everything taken care of. It is obvious that the people at Bayshore really care about and take pride in what they do. It's been over a year now and our friends and family are still talking about the Bayshore and how perfect our wedding was. Again, thank you so much!

Michelle Domingo


Dear George,

There are not words to express how much we appreciated everything you did to make our wedding day so very special. It was very obvious to us that you take pride in what you do. Your attention to our details was second to none and because of you we have the most wonderful memories of our wedding day! Bayshore Grove is a beautiful facility and was exactly what we were looking for in our search for the perfect wedding and reception venue. Your staff was wonderful, the facility was beautiful (both inside and out) and the food was excellent. We truly would not have changed a single thing about our wedding day and you really made it very special for us, our friends and family. We wish you and your family the very best always, and especially have a very Merry Christmas.

Thank you again and again.

I had to send a Thank you to you and your staff. First, the weather you ordered was perfect. The grounds and hall were remarkable. The food was very good. Every person I talked to was in awe. You accommodated the requests we had and all were pleased. One of Jason’s uncles, a quiet one, said it should have been on Better Homes and Gardens! The staff at Steamers, Mike, and all, also took good care of us at the rehearsal dinner, first to use the new room! Again, Great Job and Thank you for a very memorable occasion.

Dear George and all the Bayshore staff,

Thank you so much for providing a perfect wedding reception for our daughter. The service given by everyone involved was top notch. The food was excellent. The grounds were impeccably groomed. Everyone was continuously accommodating and helpful. If we had to do it over again we wouldn't change one thing or ask for anything to be done better or differently. Because of you all - all of our out of town and out of state guests have a wonderful impression of Oswego! George, it was a pleasure working with you!

Dear George,

Dave and I wanted to express our thanks to you after Laura and Brian’s wedding on September 12, 2009. Everything was perfect! Your suggestions on how to arrange the room made easy access for all guests. The room itself looked spectacular with the chair covers and bows, along with the lighting. The wait staff did a great job. The passed hors d'oeuvres were all served hot. There were plenty of bartenders to keep things moving. We heard lots of compliments about the sunset buffet from the guests- all said especially the prime rib was terrific. Thanks for keeping everything on pace also. We lost track of time and the evening went by so fast. I know you did not have anything to do with the sunset that night...but I have never seen anything like it except for our cruise on the Caribbean! Thanks again for all your help. We would gladly recommend Bayshore to anyone who asked.

Dave and Mary Beth



Thank you so much for helping us plan our wedding. It was absolutely beautiful! All I heard all night was how beautiful Bayshore was. Your staff was great and the food was excellent!

George and Bayshore Staff,

I just cannot thank you enough for making the wedding of my daughter Nicolette and Neil Reidy a great day. George thank you for all you did for us. You were so patient and understanding with all of our concerns. You never pressured us on any decision and were so accommodating for us especially when our numbers would change that last week. George, you run a very classy facility and every detail was well taken care of. Your Bayshore staff is A-1. Karen, Tammy and the rest were so nice and friendly. Please tell them again thanks from the Kellys. George, all the guests raved about how beautiful Bayshore is. I cannot speak highly enough of you and Bayshore. Thanks again for making our daughters dream come true. You are the best.

Good morning George,

Holly and I would like to thank you, your family, the Bayshore staff, and the hotel staffs for the wonderful reception and accommodations that you provided for my daughter and son-in-law and all our guests. The setting was beautiful, the food was great, and your staff was professional and attentive. We could not have been happier. My special thanks to you George for being flexible, patient, and organized. You made the day that much nicer. Thank you for the perfect weather, it was worth the extra fee! Congratulations on being the premier spot in the area for events- please continue to grow and prosper, it is a showcase that speaks well for the Broadwell family. Our out-of-state and NYC guests loved the entire experience and the locals that have not been to Bayshore in years were absolutely stunned. They didn't realize there was such a gem on the lake. The highest compliment that I could give you is that you have hosted 2 of my 3 daughter’s weddings/receptions. If I had a fourth-and 3 was enough- I would be making plans with you again.
Please pass along Holly and my thanks to everyone involved. Your efforts were appreciated.

Please thank your staff for their help also. It truly was a night to remember thanks to you and your wonderful staff. We will highly recommend Bayshore! Thanks again for all of your hard work and being so accommodating!

Hi George,

We just wanted to thank you and your staff for making Trisha and Josh’s wedding on September 18th a very enjoyable and memorable time for us.

Your staff at Bayshore, Econo Lodge and Best Western were always helpful, professional and accommodating.

Again, we thank you for everything!

Thank you for making our special day run smoothly. We were just amazed on how everything came together. The staff was very attentive. Our guests had a great time and said the grounds were beautiful.

Thanks again.

Just a quick note to say thank you for making Melissa and Adam's wedding so very special. The ambience of Bayshore combines with your competent staff and your easy, outgoing personality made for a very relaxed and enjoyable day. It couldn’t have been more perfect. We're still hearing back from family and friends how much they loved everything about the day. Again, we enjoyed working with you and would not hesitate to recommend Bay Shore as an event location. Emmanual took some incredible pictures. Let us know if you would like to see any of them for your books.

FYI - However you train your wait staff on customer service, keep it up. Two of your waitresses saw us at the hotel after the wedding & inquired if everything was okay. We were touched that they thought to ask!

Many Thanks - Hugh & Julie Byrne



Words cannot express how grateful we are for all of your support over the past year. You truly gave us the wedding of our dreams, we couldn't have asked for more! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Not only did all of our guests rave about the delicious food and amazing views, but you and everyone that helped out from the Bayshore staff were amazing! Thank you so much for dealing with our craziness throughout the planning! You gave us so many good ideas and advice; we couldn't have done it without you! You were always within contact to answer any and all questions which made planning so much less stressful! And our wedding day was more beautiful and fun than we had expected!!! Thank you again for everything!! And we may be seeing you for a 10 or 25 year anniversary!

Thank you so much for making Laurie and Chris' day so special. You had everything under control! Bayshore itself is amazing but you and your staff made this a spectacular event. We felt comfortable working with you from day one. But we must say you exceeded all our expectations.

I just have to tell you that all I received from guests that day were compliments on everything! Every single guest told me how gorgeous Bayshore is and how wonderful the food was and how everyone there was so nice. We had, hands down, the best day of our lives! It was absolutely perfect! I'm supposed to be getting the photos from the photographer later this week. I would love to share some of them with you if you would like. I can send them in an email and if you want to use them in an updated brochure feel free!

Thanks again! It was absolutely perfect!!!


Hi George ~

This is a very long over-due Thank you!!! Kayla & Mike's wedding was absolutely stupendous ~ Thanks to you and your staff (Econolodge staff included). I have been boasting all around town about how wonderful you and your staff were to work with. As you probably guessed, I have a big mouth and word will get around!! You are so organized, personable and gracious ~ especially with a stressed mother of the bride! I cannot tell you how many of our guests gushed over the beauty of Bayshore, the food, drink ~ absolutely everything. Our day was perfect in every way (including the weather)... Most importantly, the Bride and Groom said it was the best day of their lives ~ that is what it's really all about!!! Thanks George ~ You are the Best!! I look forward to seeing you at other Bayshore events in the future!!

PS: Thanks for your referral to Pastor Mike ~ All of us absolutely loved him!


Dear George,

On behalf of the Oswego Hospital Employee Fund "fun" Clambake Committee I would like to extend our thanks for the wonderful evening we had at Bay Shore on July 1, 2011. We could not have asked for any more of an ideal evening. The weather was perfect, the accommodations were perfect, and the food and service were outstanding! Our entertainer, Gary Johnson was also impressed.

As a family run business, you have made the planning for this event easy. You understand where we are coming from. We had spoken last year of where the money comes from to sponsor an event like this for the Oswego Health employees and their families. We have a contract with the vending company and a percentage of the sales go to the Employee Fund. This is sponsored by and for the employees. This makes the functions affordable and it makes for fun time out with coworkers. Each employee paid $25 per ticket to attend. What a great savings for the employees. With this in mind, the deduction in the grounds fee was greatly appreciated. We are looking forward to the 2012 "Fun" clambake. Please extend our thanks to your family and staff for the great time we had.

Best Regards,
Linda M. Cole
Oswego Hospital Employee Fund



This is overdue. Christine and I can't thank you enough for our wedding at Bayshore on October 9, 2011. We, along with our guests, were blown away. The entire place looked great, the music was perfect, the food was great, and all service was OUTSTANDING. (The weather wasn't too bad either!!). Thanks for taking time with us in the planning process, you made it very easy for us. And your recommendation for our using Brian (DJ) couldn't have been better. Everything went exactly as you told us it would (you even were able to get Christine out of the bridal suite! haha). Couldn't be happier with our choice to get married at Bayshore. Thanks again for EVERYTHING! See you at Steamers sometime!

Bryan and Christine Shaffer



The wedding was absolutely beautiful. So many people asked us how we found Bayshore. You have such a BEAUTIFUL place --- but more importantly you have a wonderful and supportive crew. I cannot tell you how much it meant to us when your crew scrambled at the last moment because Shawn didn't show. Adam did an AMAZING job --- AND he met our frustration -- time and time again -- with professionalism, courtesy and solutions. We continue to receive so many compliments about the wedding. We want to thank you for ALL of the help you mustered up the days before the wedding --- and for your extension of services on the day of the wedding. The food was amazing and the service at the wedding was nothing less than top-notch. We have been told over and over that this was "The. Best. Wedding. Ever." It was so nice to deal with such professionalism, courtesy and class. You truly make dreams come true!! Again, thanks so much for everything. It was such a pleasure. We will highly recommend Bayshore to everyone. We will certainly look to Bayshore FIRST for all of our future events!!

Best Regards,


George & the entire Bayshore Staff:

Thank you so much for making sure every part of our wedding ran as smoothly as possible! Working with you took so much stress away! Hope everyone enjoys the remainder of the summer!

-Briana & Nathan Burchfield

Dear George, Bayshore Staff, and Chefs!

Words cannot express the gratitude that I and my family and friends have for the most wonderful party, service, place, and did I say Service! You all went above and beyond what I could have ever expected! I had nothing to do but visit and enjoy our family and friends - you waited on me and many others the whole time. We received many compliments on all that you did and how nice everything was. We had a few say they would be requesting information from you too!! The food was delicious, as we knew it would be. I just can't thank you enough. I praise God for people like you all who made our day - daughter's day - so perfect!

With Much Gratitude, Appreciation, and Thanks,

Dear George and the Bayshore Staff,

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for a wonderful wedding day! The complements have not stopped pouring in from our guests - what a beautiful venue, how wonderful the food was, how amazing the staff was - and they didn't even know the half of it! I will never forget seeing your family members steaming our seat covers, watching your staff come to the rescue when Sean failed to show, or having your servers repair my bustle with a butter knife! :)

At every turn, you and your staff were MORE than professional - you catered to our every need and made sure that our day was perfect down to the very last detail. All of the extra work meeting with the fireworks staff was greatly appreciated. Our wedding day was truly a fairytale. I could never thank you enough for the beautiful start that you and your amazing staff gave to our marriage.

Much Love,

Sondra & Patrick Whalen
P.S. See you for our 10 year wedding anniversary!! :)
