We were married on 5/18/12 and had our reception at Burgundy Basin. Carl, Mike, Denise and the rest of the staff treated us more like family than customers. Burgundy Basin provides an array of wedding packages so you can pick the package that fits your budget.
The food was fabulous. The Filet Mignon could be cut with a butter knife. The Chicken French and Haddock Stephanie were equally delectable. Also, included in our package was the wedding cake. Yes, Burgundy Basin has a bakery and prepared the cake to our specifications. We had many comments from our guests about how wonderful the cake was. We also had a pastry and cookie presentation that was tasty as well as pleasing to the eyes.
Beyond the venue and food was the exceptional service. My husband and I did exhaustive research to pick the right place for our special day and we were not disappointed. In addition to the above, the staff helped us to find our photographer, entertainment, limo service and chair covers.
In our opinion, Burgundy Basin provided superior value for the best price. For us, there was no other choice.

The wedding day and reception were all that my daughter dreamed of. The wedding and reception went effortlessly as planned with the Burgundy Basin staff moving everything along without being noticed. The guests had a great time and raved about the food and venue. Everyone had a great time, especially the bride and groom!
The Burgundy Basin is second to none...personal service from the initial planning, to the completion of your event! They cover all of the bases...beautiful grounds for your ceremony, gorgeous rooms for your reception, and a staff that is always on hand to help in any way they can. We have developed an excellent working relationship with them for many years, and look forward to it growing stronger for many years to come!
I have officiated many ceremonies at the Burgundy Basin Banquet and Wedding Center. The staff is professional and skilled at making sure the event runs smoothly. They are prepared for anything- always with a smile. They offer several nice options for ceremonies-indoors and out. Decorations are tasteful and creative. I have also had the pleasure of staying for quite a few receptions. The food is always good...and the cakes are amazing!
