    We LOVED our Basin Harbor Wedding Weekend!

    Where do we even begin?! Basin Harbor was hands down the best venue we could have picked to have our wedding weekend! Ellen and Anne went above and beyond to make sure that everything was set and organized for our full weekend of wedding events. The Basin Harbor wedding team is organized, professional, and prompt. We felt completely at ease the day of our wedding knowing that Anne and Ellen were taking care of everything. We really were able to enjoy our wedding day and “be present”! The wedding team worked with us to make sure that we were able to have outdoor events the day before our wedding when they saw that there was a potential threat for rainy conditions on our actual wedding day. They even made our cocktail hour event on our wedding day outdoor/indoor to ensure that no matter what conditions we encountered, the event would be seamless! The entire staff at Basin Harbor makes sure that the wedding couple and their guests feel welcomed and special. We feel so lucky to have had hosted our wedding there and we, along with many of our guests, will be making a yearly tradition to come back and disconnect at this beautiful property. We cannot recommend Basin harbor enough!

    Our wedding weekend exceeded all expectations we ever imagined because of The Basin Harbor & their dedicated team.

    The Basin Harbor is unique in that they can handle almost all aspects of your wedding in-house (thanks to Anne, Ellen and their incredible team) which in this day and age is a rare gem and a life saver for couples who may not be able to dedicate all of their time to planning their big day. In addition to being able to have your welcome party, ceremony, reception, after party and day-after brunch all in once place, the Basin Harbor can host all of your guests on-site in accommodations varying in size and price, which allows them to relax and enjoy a game of golf on their course, swim/sail/kayak in Lake Champlain, hike/bike their trails, or swim in their pool (which is a rare perk that our guests still talk about to this day). From the day we connected with Anne to moments before I walked down the aisle, they worked with my husband and I on every minute detail while offering unique ideas to personalize certain elements (a post-ceremony harbor cruise in a chris craft boat, a floating golf green during the cocktail reception, a sparkler send off, a bonfire and food truck afterparty, etc). As we worked together throughout the year, I felt like I could rely on them to make sure that everything was taken care of and I walked away from all of our conversations feeling a sense of excitement and pride in what we'd created. You can tell that they really feel passionate about their work and thoroughly enjoy creating unforgettable weddings and events. I honestly cannot imagine an easier and more enjoyable way to plan a wedding. They've built relationships with the best local vendors and host intimate meet-and-greets which makes choosing vendors (photographer, band, florist, etc.) a breeze. Our wedding weekend exceeded all expectations we ever imagined because we were able to live in the moment and enjoy ourselves. We wouldn't have been able to have that without the level of detail and incredible hospitality that the Basin Harbor offers. I cannot wait to celebrate our anniversary each year and walk around the property thinking back to the best day of my life.

    We love Basin Harbor! Their expansive property has so many varied settings that no two weddings are alike; you could have an elegant tented affair or a casual lakeside party, or anything in between. The cabins set along the lake look rustic, but are delightfully modernized and comfortable; perfect for guests and prep spaces. We especially love the front lawn by the dining room that overlooks the harbor! Soaring trees and lovely evening light makes it the perfect spot for a cocktail hour.

    The Basin Harbor Club is one of the few gems in Vermont. It's truly unique. The staff is very professional, accommodating, and personable. The BHC provides a beautiful venue that has breathtaking views, numerous activities and great amenities for guests. I have enjoyed every minute at BHC and consider it one of the premier New England wedding venues.

    Natural beauty, comfortable elegance, and an absolute TOP NOTCH staff make this one of my favorite wedding venues in the whole state. Its location makes it a wonderful place to shoot, with golden light streaming through the trees, and reflecting off the shimmering harbor. I love BHC, and so will you!
