Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Just two hours north of Boston, this wonderful full-service resort sits at the edge of Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire's beloved Lakes Region.
  • Say "I do" at the edge of Paugus Bay, followed by a lavish reception beneath a clear-walled tent overlooking the pristine waters. Finish off the day with a cozy campfire, or a spectacular fireworks display over the lake.
  • Guests can choose from an array of great accommodations, and there's more than enough fun right on the grounds to fill a wedding weekend, whether it's boating on the bay or basking on the private beach.
