Host your outdoor New Hampshire wedding and or reception at The Anchorage at the Lake. Perfectly situated on over thirty acres of land and one mile of waterfront on Lake Winnisquam in Tilton, New Hampshire, The Anchorage at the Lake offers the nostalgic, laid back cabin-style camping experience of yesterday.
Built in the 1950’s, The Anchorage at the Lake takes you away from the hustle and bustle of the world and brings you back to the basics of spending time with family sitting on screened in porches playing cards, gathering around the campfire roasting marshmallows, playing shuffle board, horseshoes and fishing from a canoe or kayak early in the morning.
If this sounds like your style, you will be happy to know the many reasons The Anchorage at the Lake is such a great place for a destination wedding. There are thirty cabins available and three large homes. The Anchorage at the Lake can accommodate a total of two hundered and twenty-four guests.

There is a very large sprawling lawn overlooking the lake which is the ideal location for a wedding tent. Hoping for great photos? The Anchorage at the Lake has three private beaches on the property as well as a large deck on the water, perfect for capturing those special moments.

We had our weekend wedding here and got married on the beach. It was beautiful and everyone had a great time. Alyson was great to work with and very accommodating The cabins are very rustic and a little dirty for my taste but otherwise a great place ...Sent on 06/27/2013

I first contacted Anchorage in the fall of 2012 and was given the impression we could have the run of the place with a September 2013 wedding. It sounded like their 2013 season was much busier than expected and by the time of my wedding they were sticking to all of their many rules - not a big deal, but I wish I knew ahead of time.Sent on 12/21/2013
The cabins are rustic and somewhat dirty, but it was ok, I had set my expectations low and my guests are more of the camping variety. It's a typical family camping type place and would be great for taking your kids for a week, but some of the guests opted to stay in a hotel. There were some maintenance issues: in one cabin the shower head wouldn't turn off, at least on 3 separate occasions. The bathroom flooded while they waited for Chris to fix it. There was a long list of rules handed out to everyone who checked into to the cabins, but some people weren't told there was a heater in the cabin and they froze all night.
I think Anchorage is getting more into weddings and receptions, and it would be very helpful if Alyson had a list of what they suggested for brides setting up a wedding here. I was so scared I wasn't going to think of something and it would be a glaring omission at the event. This wasn't the case because I probably emailed Alyson 500 times about what to get/bring and she was very patient with me. We set up port a potties, extension cords/splitters, and the tent/tables/chairs.
They had a hard rule of no loud music after 10pm so the other guests wouldn't complain. I'd suggest renting out the entire place to avoid this. The campfires each night were fun. No issues with the canoe rentals and it's a great location on the lake. I would recommend Anchorage for a low key, informal wedding if your expectations are set correctly.
