Basin Harbor Resort & Boat Club, on the shores of Lake Champlain, provides a flawless backdrop for a classic New England wedding. Imagine yourself amidst 700 acres of Vermont’s most beautiful land, creating memories with your family and friends, exchanging your vows, and celebrating as the sun sets over the Adirondacks. Our pristine gardens and lawns, ceremony sites, expansive water views, newly-renovated docks, maritime memorabilia, and charming historical buildings and cottages offer picture-perfect opportunities to capture the magic of your special day.

Welcome your family and friends to the resort on Friday evening with a cocktail cruise. Catch up with loved ones at your lobster bake rehearsal dinner on our North Dock. On Saturday morning, enjoy our signature breakfast buffet at Ardelia’s featuring the endless bounty of Vermont. As you prepare in comfort in one of our beautifully-appointed cottages, your guests can spend the day enjoying all of the activities Basin Harbor has to offer: hiking, biking, kayaking, boating, paddle boarding, lawn games, spa treatments, golfing, tennis, relaxing by the lake, and lounging by the pool. In the afternoon, walk down the aisle at our Wedding Arch, the Orchard Garden, or the Lodge Lawn with breathtaking views of the harbor. Now that you’ve said your vows, it’s time to celebrate! As the sun sets on Lake Champlain, enjoy cocktail hour and dancing through the night at your reception on the Homestead Lawn or in one of our elegant venue spaces. Then it’s time for fireworks, a sparkler send-off, and the midnight snacks at your after party at The Red Mill. On Sunday, have a delicious farewell brunch with your family and friends. Reminisce over mimosas about an incredible weekend that no one will ever forget.

We pride ourselves in getting to know our brides, grooms, and their families. We work with each couple to create a unique wedding experience while staying true to a timeless Vermont aesthetic. Our professional sales and coordination team work with you at every step to help you realize your vision. At Basin Harbor, we’ve been creating family traditions since 1886. We are committed to exceptional service. This is a place like no other: beautiful, peaceful, with a magic all its own. We look forward to sharing it with you. Time to celebrate the good things in life!

We await the pleasure of your company!

Several times after our wedding had concluded, we agreed that we had never thought it might go as well as it did. Except for the truly amazing weather (for which we only half-jokingly accredit our past donations to the Nature Conservancy), much of the exquisite coordination was thanks to the Basin Harbor team. Starting almost a year in advance, the staff--and particularly Anne and Chris--were both alert to decisions, deadlines, and pitfalls that we would never have anticipated and incredibly responsive to all of our many inquiries and requests. In short, the setting was sublime, the food was delicious, our guests consumed awe-inspiring amounts of rose, and it was truthfully the most fun either of us have ever had at a wedding (as one might hope). It was wonderful having almost all of the events in one place, and our biggest concern--that the 10pm "quiet hours" might hamper our festivities--was rendered completely moot by the excellent after-party at Red Mill, only steps down the drive. We are eternally grateful to the BH team and cannot recommend them strongly enough.

Basin Harbor continues to be a place where memories are created with grace, style and lots of smiles. We are so happy we were able to have my daughters wedding here. I have been coming to Basin Harbor for over 50 years and each time the visits are filled with happy times. The wedding was seamless and the attention to detail was amazing. The food extraordinary as usual and Anne Henderson made the event run smoothly. We had a campfire Friday night after the rehearsal dinner and the dining room for the reception was beautiful. The staff was so helpful! I would recommend Basin Harbor as a place to hold one of the most important events of your families life anytime. Filled with joy! Deb Kelley

Anne was an outstanding resource and advisor during the planning phase and an even more outstanding host and “face” of the Club during our stay. The wedding would have been far less wonderful and memorable if not for Anne.

Anne and Dawn were invaluable to our experience. There was an endless amount of patience, flexibility,genuine caring, not to mention how personalbe they were. I would not change one thing about the Rehearsal Dinner. My husband and I will always be grateful to the BHC team!

We loved sharing such an amazing event with you and your loved ones! The rehearsal dinner is often the beginning of the wedding weekend, a very special occasion for families to gather in honor of the couple as individuals and their new life together.

This is an exceptional wedding venue! We celebrated my daughter‘s wedding weekend at Basin Harbor in August, 2017 , including the rehearsal dinner , the ceremony, cocktail party, dinner and dancing and day-after brunch. The weekend was an intimate celebration of less than 25 people which meant that every detail became more important with such a small group. BH did not disappoint. It was the wedding of my daughters and her husbands dreams! From the checklist prepared in advance, to correspondence with the BH event planners, to meeting the chef to relay the dream of a tiramisu wedding cake... all was well planned before the event and correspondence was responded to promptly. As the Mother of the bride, when the wedding weekend arrived, I was prepared oversee and to worry about details, but the minute I arrived I saw that everything had been well orchestrated and I was there to enjoy the weekend with all the guests. Every detail was taken care of expertly and my BH contacts were always present should I have a last minute request , like doubling the order of boxed lunches. They were also ready to adapt to the whims of August weather if needed. The events came off without a hitch. I may be biased but as my daughter’s friend told me, it was the best wedding ever! Thanks to the location, the food, the service and the expert wedding staff!

More than anything, we want to bring family and friends together at our family owned resort. We loved getting to know each of your families throughout the year leading up to the wedding events. Thank you for sharing how wonderful everything was from the staff, each delicious dish to the wonderful memories. We look forward to welcoming all of you for many years!

Basin Harbor Club is the ideal location for your Vermont wedding! The lush thriving grounds with endless activities available, views across beautiful Lake Champlain to epic Sunsets behind the majestic Adirondack Mountains, and modern yet quintessential Vermont rustic facilities with custom cottages make for the perfect setting, accommodations, and natural aesthetic. Basin Harbor Club's resident Wedding Coordinators, Anne Henderson and Dawn Wagner, know the venue and the many possibilities within it so well that their contributions to our wedding were immeasurable! They guided us thru the process, ensuring every detail was perfect from planning to presentation. They were responsive, collaborative, and communicative in their diligent efforts on our behalf. They were the best duo we could have ever asked for. We are so grateful for them. Get the best collection of people from your lives together here and it will be the wedding of your dreams. It was, emphatically, OURS! THANK YOU Anne Henderson, Dawn Wagner, and Basin Harbor Club plus staff! Corinne & Stu

We can not say enough about BHC!! It was truly the wedding of our dreams. Anne and rest of the staff were instrumental to making our weekend so special and would do it all over again in a heartbeat! The location and staff are beyond superb. Best part -- it feels like you are hosting a destination wedding without leaving VT.

We were married the first weekend in October and couldn't have asked for a better location! All of our guests loved coming up to Vermont for the weekend and Anne, the wedding coordinator was so incredibly helpful in planning all of our weekend events. The day seemed (at least to me!) so perfect and seamless. We did have to move some of our events inside (Friday night campfire and lakeside cocktail hour) given the high winds that weekend but Anne already had a back up plan for both and I don't think our guests even noticed there had been a change in plans. I cannot recommend this location enough. I also loved that all of our guests could stay in one place (and in all sorts of different accommodations).
Basin Harbor responded with the following comments:
Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts and the experience of your loved ones. The opportunity to honor your wedding and spend the entire weekend together offers valuable time for festivities, adventure and rejuvenation. We are so happy you chose Basin Harbor Club to celebrate your wedding. We love to create wonderful memories, it's what motivates us!

My daughter was recently married at the Basin Harbor Club. Most of our wedding guests stayed at the Club, either in the main lodge, the Homestead lodge or the individual cottages. All of our guests were delighted with the beautiful scenery of the lake and the gardens, the variety of activities offered, the accommodations, the food, and the overall friendly atmosphere of the staff. Because our guests stayed for two nights, this became an entire wedding week-end of celebrations. Anne Henderson, the wedding coordinator and her staff could not have been more helpful. They were responsive to our questions, and made certain that no detail was left out. Anne really made it an exceptional event for our family and all of our guests.
