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!
