Hear from Our Brides & Grooms

We think that Basin Harbor is the perfect spot to share this moment in time with your friends and family. But we are a little biased. Take a moment to listen to our wedding guests and find out exactly why Basin Harbor is such a special place. 

Lindsay & Brendan

Mother of the Bride - My daughter was recently married at the Basin Harbor. Most of our wedding guests stayed at the resort, 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.

Alyson & Kevin

Father of the Bride - For several months leading up to the wedding weekend, I had several occasions to make reservations for myself, friends, and elderly aunts. On each opportunity to speak with your staff, I increasingly became more confident that the wedding would be professionally managed. In particular, Heidi, Kate, Ann and Sarah, could not have been nicer, more polite, or helpful in finding and securing accommodations for my elderly aunts. The wedding ceremony rehearsal was Friday morning, June 12th when I first met Anne Henderson. She thoroughly walked each person through their responsibility and everyone was clear. At the conclusion, Anne wished to discuss Friday night’s reception at the North Dock. In meteorologist-like fashion, she described that evening’s weather forecast and presented the option to us of an alternate location. Since it appeared a 50-50 proposition that it would rain, everyone was in agreement that we would roll the dice. Disaster. We should have listened to Anne as we got rained on pretty mightily. What happened next was miraculous. Through Anne’s leadership, calmness, and diligence, the staff was able to move the audio-visual show, sound, all of the food and beverage, set up tables and chairs, from the North Dock to the larger tent, already set up ( thank God ) for Saturday’s dinner. What was amazing was the continuous stream of employees getting soaked so that the guests could move up the hill under umbrellas. Saturday’s wedding dinner was perfect, the food outstanding, and, as all weekend, the employees were truly spectacular.

Willa & Eric

Grandmother of the Bride - I am still stunned by our experience with you during my granddaughter's wedding. We had four families gathering who didn't know each other and you provided the staff and the facility that allowed us to float around easily as we formed new friendships all round. It goes without saying that your club is magnificent (partly because you have resisted glitzing it up). It is a magnificent piece of nature and your staff takes perfect care of it. That's what I really need to talk about: your staff. Most from foreign countries, all interesting to talk to about their American experience, every one of them trying to do their best to make us all comfortable. I have never seen staff like that anywhere else in my life (I'm 85 and have seen a lot). the bellman each went far beyond duty when I lost my keys and even once in the beginning, lost my cottage. They all did their jobs with such good humor and friendliness and I will never forget them. It was their warmth that added so much to our entire wedding. It is that warmth that I feel quite sure will bring most of us back again. I thank you for it all, but especially I ask that you tell the staff how every one of us felt about their welcome to us. Thanks for being who you are.
