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 function 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.

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).

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.

Basin Harbor Club was a perfect place for my daughter's wedding. From our first meeting , the planning of her wedding, the wedding weekend and even after - Anne and her team were a 10 PLUS!! They were always there to answer the MANY questions we had regarding weddings. The weekend of my daughter's wedding was very stress free as Anne and her team where so on top of everything so everyone had a very enjoyable time. People are still telling us it was the best wedding and property they have ever been to. I can't say enough about how enjoyable and beautiful Basin Harbor Club is.

Writing as the Mother of the Bride, I would like to say that we could not have been happier with our choice of Basin Harbor as our venue for my daughter's wedding last summer. Although we got off to an uncertain start the previous summer with a wedding planner who ended up leaving, we were extremely pleased with the new planner who was very clear about all aspects of the event including all our different options and what they would cost. The Basin Harbor staff were superb and tried very hard to accommodate all of our wishes, ranging from putting lights in a tree outside the dining room, allowing a cigar bar to be set up outside with a fire pit, and lighting sparklers for all the guests at the conclusion of the reception. On very short notice, they even produced a bottle of bourbon for us to bury at the wedding site (an old Southern custom!) Having a wedding at Basin Harbor is SO MUCH FUN!! All of our guests who stayed there said they had never been to a better wedding. They all closed down the dance floor at the Red Mill on Friday night and were able to walk home to their rooms. On Saturday, they played golf, relaxed, swam etc. before the big event. And, no one (at least those who stayed at the club) had to drive anywhere! The food was fabulous. We chose to have four food stations...we were given a tasting in the spring by the chef so that we could tweak some of our choices. Everything was beautifully displayed and people commented a LOT about how great the meal choices were. I have never had a minute's regret about having the wedding there. if you are willing to work with their staff, they will work with you!
Basin Harbor responded with the following comments:
Every wedding is work but these guests made the work feel like a chat with an old friend. We’re grateful they chose Basin Harbor Club to celebrate their marriage and bring their family and friends together. Our staff had a lot of fun planning custom menus and activities for the wedding and we were thrilled by the guest’s reactions to the food and service. These guests had many thoughtful, personal touches that made the events so special and we’re so happy we could be here to help. All our best wishes to the bride and groom and we look forward to seeing the whole family at Basin Harbor Club in years to come!

I was hesitant about Basin Harbor at first because of the requirements I needed to meet in order to have my wedding there. Low and behold, those requirements were actually easy to meet (number of rooms, minimum dollar amount to spend, etc.). The event coordinators were very helpful and did everything I could've asked of them and then some. I had detailed centerpieces and they pulled it all off perfectly. The weather and outside locations couldn't have been more beautiful - the grounds are stunning. While the price was high, it was comparable to other locations and it included literally everything. If you can afford to have a wedding at a resort place like this, do it here!

Basin Harbor is gorgeous. My husband and I choose the spot because we wanted to find a venue that would require minimal decorating. Between their gardens, the lake, and the cliffs in the background, we didn't need to do much to make the place fit for a wedding. The coordinator, Anne Henderson was incredibly prompt with her response times. She asked tons of questions which I found incredibly helpful. There were only two things about Basin Harbor that upset me. Between the time that I booked the venue and my rehearsal (which was just a few days before the wedding) Basin Harbor tore out several of the flower beds in the garden where my ceremony was held. We had to completely change our seating last minute and I don't think the end result was as nice as it would have been. They felt that this would accommodate more guests. The second thing is that they decided to serve other resort guests from my open bar. The other guests did have to pay, but my wedding guests ended up waiting around for drinks while swimsuit-clad families dripped on my reception. To their credit, once I was able to track down another Basin Harbor Club staff member they immediately told the bartender to stop. Having said that, I enjoyed my wedding more than I could possibly have imagined. It really is a stunning spot and it was very convenient to be able to have my guests stay on site. Many of my guests actually chose to stay for longer vacations to enjoy the resort.
