We had our wedding at Mountain Meadows Lodge just two weeks ago and we are still glowing reminiscing about the entire weekend! We had a very large wedding and the staff at MML was extremely accommodating. We wanted to be able to spend quality time with everyone that was coming so we decided to have people over at the lodge on Saturday for yard games, swimming and relaxing followed by a bonfire that night. The wedding was Sunday and truly felt perfect. There is not one thing that we would have changed or done differently. We are so incredibly grateful to the Bill, Marge, Alex, Ali and the rest of the crew that made the weekend possible for us. We were at the maximum capacity for the venue and yet it still felt intimate. Our families had an incredible time and many of them told us it was the best wedding they had ever been to. People felt like it was really special which I attribute a lot to the comfortable, inclusive environment. It was also great for kids (which we had over 20 of) as they can swim, run around on the lawn and see/feed the animals. It is hard to but into words just how grateful we are to everyone at MML. We had a vision and you made it possible with ease and understanding. Thank you again. We know that there will be new ownership soon which we are said to hear (though understanding!). We hope that other couples will have similar experiences at the lodge in the future. All our love, Katie and Travis
This is bittersweet to write as I'm not sure what the fate of weddings at MML is for the next wedding season as Bill will be moving and the lodge will be under a new owner. But we still feel we must profess how amazing Bill, Alex, Ali, Marge, and the rest of MML team is. They helped create and execute what was the most amazing and perfect weekend of our lives. I know it's cliche, but it is true. Our wedding had every perfect detail included from start to finish that we could have ever imagined and we had more fun than ever thought possible. From daily nightly bon fires and smores, to accommodating all of our family requests, to letting us create a sundae bar of our dreams, to letting us feed the animals, and so many more moments- the team at MML now feel like our family and we have never felt such joy and happiness. Marge and Bill put up with all of my last minute requests, I was at the Lodge 5min and Ali was already standing on a chair hanging a decoration I thought we might be able to use. Every morsel of food was delicious, every activity so engaging, and every story from Bill so interesting! It was the perfect venue to transition to the next stage in our lives of being married as we were surrounded by such loving people and the most beautiful view of mountains, lakes, the AT, and animals. I will forever be grateful and think lovingly of the people at MML and wish them the best of luck in their new endeavors. They are truly like family and bring so much goodness into the world. Thank you for making our wedding day so special. Love, Gabby & Adam
Mountain Meadows was amazing and helpful. They made us feel like we were part of a family and they helped us stay on budget while having quality foods, drinks, and more. The venue is beautiful, right by the water, you can see mountains, and the animals on the property were cute and a big hit. They made sure everything was perfect, and genuinely cared about our time at the wedding!
We had a wonderful time at the lodge. Everything was just perfect. If you want to have a relaxing wedding then this is the place. They handled everything right down to the last detail. I highly recommend this venue.
Alex and I knew this was the perfect venue for us once we arrived at the property. The grounds were beautifully manicured, and the staff was more then welcoming. It was ideal to be able to lodge on the property, and have the ceremony and reception there as well. It was like renting an VRBO, but better. The wedding coordinator and owner took care of organizing the tent, linens, food, setting up the ceremony site, help create a weekend time line and finalized all the weekend details, with our input, of course. The weekend ran smoothly, and the staff was attentative to us and our guests every needs. We will absolutely be back for a weekend visit, and highly recommend Mountain Meadows to anyone looking for a lovely, relaxing wedding in the heart of VT!
Mountain Meadows was the perfect setting for my daughter and son-in-law's wedding. Casual but attentive to every detail. They knew how important this event was to us and went to every length to ensure that all was perfect. The guests were enchanted by the setting and thoroughly enjoyed exploring the property, including the adjacent hiking trails. Thank you for making this once in a lifetime event memorable for all of us!
+MML is the ideal spot to have a wedding. My husband and I were looking for a place where we could have the ceremony and reception in the same location, and host our immediate family on site. We knew we had hit the jackpot when we went to look at MML.
+During the planning process, the staff always had an answer for our questions, relaxing us during the planning process and instilling a sense of confidence knowing that they had done this many times before. Given that they have done hundreds of weddings over the years, they have a good idea of who to work with, so we trusted them completely and were not disappointed.
+The more we worked with the staff at the Lodge, the more we were confident that our wedding weekend would be incredible. Bill helped put together a menu that would meet all the dietary restrictions that our guests had. Lauren, the coordinator, provided guidance on how to plan out the day, but at the same time was flexible when we decided to change stuff around. Matt and Alex were incredibly friendly, and made sure guests were having a great time throughout the weekend. The entire staff genuinely seemed excited for the weekend. It made for a friendly, positive atmosphere that ensured that our guests and we had a great time.
+The setting is absolutely beautiful, and the entire weekend was amazing. There was not a single moment we were stressed or something didn’t go right. The ceremony started on time, the champagne toast was awesome, and the cocktail hour and reception were flawless. We wholeheartedly recommend the on-site food preparation; the dinner was amazing (Lauren had timed things so that we did actually get to eat the food!), and the carrot cake that their onsite baker prepared was one of the best cakes we have ever had.
+MML will always hold a special place in our hearts because of this magical weekend. We highly recommend them to anybody planning a wedding, as you are guaranteed to have an amazing time!
If you are thinking about a destination wedding, or a wedding in Vermont, do yourself a favor and talk to Bill at Mountain Meadows Lodge. Once you talk to Bill and then visit Mountain Meadows you will feel a lot of the wedding anxiety lift from your shoulders.
Bill, Lauren, Alex, Matt and PV are the nicest people you could ever meet. They treat your wedding as the most important event that they have ever hosted. But at the same time, they give you the confidence that they have handled just about every wedding calamity with ease and grace. The wedding ceremony and reception were magical. The grounds are beautiful. The lake is breathtaking. The food is amazing. There are activities to keep everyone busy and happy - hiking on the Appalachian trail, horseshoes, kayaking, ping pong, darts, badminton, or just relaxing in the Adirondacks chairs. Feeding the goats was a big hit with the young ones. In short, it was a perfect wedding.
And Congratulations on your engagement!
The staff at Mountain Meadows Lodge we fantastic. As we got to know them over the course of planning the event we knew this was for us. Extremely accommodating and professional. We even included Bill in our ceremony. As for the venue itself, the grounds were incredible. It had everything we were looking for and then some. I highly recommend Mountain Meadows Lodge and staff for your big day.
Having our wedding reception at Mountain Meadows Lodge was everything we imagined. We spent Thursday-Sunday there, and enjoyed the lake, goats and pony, ample games, and friendliness of everyone at Mountain Meadows Lodge. Bill, Lauren, Alex, Matt and the staff were unbelievably accommodating and helpful every step of the way from planning to the big day. The reception was well-coordinated, the food was delicious, and the scenery was outstanding. We definitely plan to come back just to visit!
Anyone looking for the perfect place for your dream wedding...look no further! From our first interaction with Bill, we knew Mountain Meadows was the venue we wanted. Bill and Lauren were so easy to work with through the entire process. Not only is the venue absolutely beautiful, the staff is hands down the best! The food was amazing the entire weekend! Bill, Lauren, Matt and Alex made all of our guests feel at home. Everyone is still raving about what a great weekend it was!!
Every single detail was taken care of, every staff member was friendly and inviting.
I can't say enough about this wonderful place and the amazing staff!! Thank you all for making our dream wedding come true!!
Perfect location for my Daughter's Wedding. The staff worked efficiently and professionally in the organizing and set up for the three day event. Guests were able to stay on site which made it very convenient. Food was absolutely delicious and prepared by owner Chef Bill Mercier. Grounds were well maintained and made for a stunning backdrop for photos. Heartfelt thanks to all Mountain Meadows staff in making this my Daughter's Dream Wedding.
Mountain Meadows Lodge helped us to experience the wedding weekend of our dreams! We could not have asked for a better time, but we could not have done it without all the help and support we received from Bill, Lauren, Matt, Claire, and the entire MML staff. We live in NYC, but were able to come up twice for planning visits, and each time the "planning" weekends felt more like fun mini-vacations than like work. The atmosphere was lovely, the food and drinks were fantastic, and the entire staff was willing to work with us to make our wedding truly our own. We would also like to commend Mountain Meadows for adapting to any issues or changes that arose without skipping a beat. They were very malleable when it came to dealing with both absent guests and timing changes. An awesome place to get married! Hopefully we will be back to visit in the future!
It's as simple as this: choose Mountain Meadows Lodge for your Wedding venue!
I was the groom during a late May wedding here and it could not have been better. The staff were among the friendliest and most accommodating people on the planet. We didn't have an official wedding planner, and the Saintly folk at the Lodge provided insurmountable advice and care for over a year as we planned our Wedding- never even mind the absolute perfection on the actual day.
The location itself was breathtaking with perfect temperature for being on the water in May. It's right on the Appalachian Trail, providing great hiking opportunities for your guests (We did an early morning hike to a Thundering Falls on the day of the ceremony). You'll likely have the entire Lodge to yourself if you have more than 50 guests, so that provides a great atmosphere at all hours - no matter how late the partying goes.
I seriously cannot recommend this place enough.
We absolutely loved everything about Mountain Meadows. The wedding couple were looking for a place that would allow the bride and groom to have a voice in the entire event, and Bill and staff at Mountain Meadows were happy to accomodate them. Bill and staff were extremely quick to handle any issues that came up, and they were thoroughly professional yet very friendly. It was clear that the staff had lots of experience dealing with many events, and their calm, professional handling of the entire event really made the whole weekend a great success.
Go visit it to get a feel for the environment. Call Bill and chat abut anything on your mind. He's very accessible and straight forward when communicating.
I would highly recommend Mountain Meadows Resort to any couple desiring a picturesque Vermont wedding! My son Vincent Ulrich and his fiancee Ceiarah Kewley held their wedding here on the weekend of Dec. 9 - 11, and it was magnificent! Bill, Anne, Lauren, Candice,and the whole staff were so friendly and helpful. The venue was just perfect for the romantic winter wedding Vincent and Ceiarah had in mind. It was a huge help that the parents of the groom and the bride could bring their family black labs! The lodge and farmhouse were spacious and welcoming, and the staff guided us in utilizing all the various suites and rooms for pre-wedding dressing and photos. The dining room, living room, entry areas, bar, dancing area, and other gorgeous spaces in the lodge were beautiful and really added a lovely ambience to the wedding. All our guests had a wonderful time! It was truly a wedding weekend to remember!
I couldn't be more pleased with mountain meadows staff and the over all friendly and weaving atmosphere. They made my wedding day an EXTREMELY special one.
I am a person who counts on reviews from other's at all times, especially when it came to choosing Mountain Meadows Lodge for my wedding weekend. I could not have made a wiser decision. My entire experience from the very first call to my final goodbye's was nothing short of perfect! Bill, Lauren and Candace along with Alex and Matt made my entire weekend! Bill could not be more helpful when planning especially on a budget. Candace should have been my maid of honor, I could not have appreciated every little thing that she did, even if it was for a reassuring hug, more. Lauren ROCKS, this woman became by best friend, seamstress, my therapist, oh and of course my wedding planner!! She put me at ease along with my husbands aunt who was our officiant. Any questions or concerns she had, Lauren was there every step of the way. Every detail from music to setting up my decorations more beautifully that I could have ever imagined was just flawless. The backdrop to every photo that was taken is truly breathless. We spent 3 nights at the lodge and by the end we were all planning our next visit back..to repeat the ENTIRE experience. My guests could not have felt more honored to be apart of such a magical weekend. My best advice is to choose this location, choose to work with these amazing people and ultimately choose to have a wedding you won't soon forget and neither will your guests. Just remember, what happens in the game room..stays in the game room!!
Our experience at Mountain Meadows Lodge was amazing from start to finish. During the planning process Bill was very responsive to all questions and requests. He was a joy to work with. During the actual wedding weekend everyone worked so hard to make the occasion memorable for all of us. Candice and Alex were wonderful, always ready with help and suggestions. The food was perfect, from the ribs at the rehearsal dinner to the wonderful scones at Sunday brunch everything was prepared with such care and attention and it truly showed in the end. The venue itself is lovely, all of our guests had a wonderful time exploring the area before the wedding and felt so at home. It was an evening that none of us wanted to end, truly magical! We can not thank you enough for this lovely event.

I cannot say enough good things about Mountain Meadows and the wonderful people who make it work! Bill, Lauren, Candice, Alex, Matt, and everyone else made our wedding weekend absolutely perfect. They are all warm, friendly, relaxed, yet super professional. The lodge itself is magical. Between beautiful bonfires under a starry Vermont sky, amazing food on both nights, tons of games and opportunities to be out on the lake, and the staff's super friendly and helpful attitudes, we could not have asked for a better weekend. Tons of our guests told us how wonderful everyone at the lodge was and said that they wished they had gotten married there. I seriously cannot recommend Mountain Meadows enough!
The Mountain Meadows team has vast experience making people comfortable; they understand how to make a complex gathering such as this weekend wedding infinitely more relaxed. There are a thousand decisions to make in any wedding, perhaps especially for today's wedding ceremonies because of the increasingly wide range of personal choice open to couples and families for how to conduct such a major life event; the staff listened to us carefully, took copious notes on our personal preferences, and guided us through the time with suggestions that added clarity and ease to the progression of various features of the ceremony itself as well as the overall flow of people. They had tremendous sensitivity to the nature of a time when two families are joining together, each of which is simultaneously experiencing a huge family reunion. Every staff member was warmly welcoming and responsive; the "vibe" there is of calm and competence from those in overall leadership roles down to those with more specific duties such as assembling and disassembling the tent. It's even a little bit magical how everyone took care of our smallest requests immediately.
The goats and pony enchanted everyone, particularly our two-year- old grandson and other children. The beauty of the setting -- a chance to canoe or kayak on a beautiful small lake where we saw loons and a Bald eagle our first morning out-- hiking opportunities from almost the back door, and game opportunities indoors and out gave the guests plenty of room to seek out chances to play.
The atmosphere overall was conducive to an enormously successful weekend for everyone, especially my daughter and new son-in-law! I am personally grateful and appreciative of the warmth and competence we experienced throughout the months of preparation and decision-making as well as the weekend itself.
Bill and his staff were there for us all the way even with the rain storm at 4:15pm and the Wedding started with the Brides approval at 4:30pm with only sprinkle at that point in the day. The Staff met all and went way above our expectations.
Thanks to the Bill and All Staff for making this Wedding Weekend for our two daughters the best time of their lives!!!
The only way I can put our wedding weekend at Mountain Meadows Lodge into words is to say that we felt that we were at home. Not only were we surrounded by all of our guests and everyone we love, but the MML staff became part of the weekend and part of your family the moment we stepped onto the property. I cannot express enough how the staff made us feel at ease all weekend and especially the day of the wedding. Lauren and Candace thought of things I forgot about and made it happen. I totally forgot about table numbers and next thing I know, Lauren is showing me beautiful card stock with intricate table numbers that matched my colors perfectly. Alex and Kyle remember your favorite drink from the bar and could tell during the weekend when a nice cold Vermont draft beer would add perfectly to our pre-wedding volleyball game with our cousins without us even having to go looking for it. Crying flower girl during pictures?? No problem! Leave it to Alex to run down to the freezer, and bring her up some Ben and Jerry's to make the picture process just a little bit easier. When I think about my wedding day and the special moments that happened, an MML staff member was probably involved. Whether it was delicious meals prepared by PV and Bill, ice cold water always filled after some crazy reception dancing, or someone never hesitating to stop what they were doing to make sure I or anyone in my wedding needed help, MML's staff was always there with a smile on their faces making sure you feel right at home!
Bill and his team were very professional and easy to work with. They even remembered that I like cream with my coffee. As mother of the bride they let me enjoy every minute of the wedding. It was really picture perfect!
