Above & Beyond!
My husband & I got married this past weekend, 8/15/2020.Sent on 08/20/2020
We have been planning this day for almost two years. Our wedding coordinator was Caroline Snyder. It was very difficult to plan things due to this being a destination wedding and also COVID times. Let me just say, Caroline and everyone at The Margate went above and beyond for us during our whole wedding weekend! Caroline was in constant communication with me prior to the wedding to get every detail just right..none too big or too small. I sent her a list of my decor for the wedding and pictures, and I was in shock when I saw the tent and everything set up. IT WAS PERFECT. She was also right on top of managing the vendors, and knowing exactly what my husband and I needed throughout the night. We couldn't have asked for a better experience and we would definitely recommend The Margate to anyone. Beautiful venue and even more of a beautiful experience! 5 stars.

Our Happy Place
We are anchored at the Margate sandbar each weekend in the summer so it made perfect sense to have our special day there. Our coordinator was Ashton and she was so fun, down to earth and simply awesome! We had a fun-filled weekend of festivities. Started off with a bonfire, pizza, s’mores and kegs on the beach for our Friday night welcome party. Bonus fireworks display was absolutely incredible. Saturday ceremony right at the waters edge in the tent with the reception following in the Mariah room. Saturday night after party in Blackstones Saloon which was so much fun. They let us decorate early that day and we had the room until 1 am. Ended the weekend with Sunday breakfast in Blackstones to say bye to everyone and thank you. We couldn’t have asked for anything better. They accommodated every request we had, pizza and kegs on the beach, champagne as you walked into the ceremony tent, and everything else we wanted. Ashton worked hard to make sure every last detail was what we envisioned. The views were amazing and made for some pretty awesome pictures. We had a few hiccups with email/IT issues but Ashton gave us her personal email and cell number to put us at ease so we could reach her at all times. The weekend was better than we dreamed it would be.Sent on 10/03/2019
The Margate on Winnipesaukee Price Rates
I have worked with the staff at the Margate for several events and they are WONDERFUL, there are not many lakeside views that are better... ANYWHERE Mariah Room is upstairs and overlooks the lake, Grand Ballroom is Downstairs and is large enough for 200+ people and they have the availability to have parties in the Blackstone's lounge as well as an outside tent. I highly recommend having your wedding at the Margate Resort You will not regret your choice of venue
