Weddings and the Water: A Perfect Combination

Setting your wedding by the lake is an extraordinary way for your guests to feel the love and joy that emerges from an everlasting bond. Our staff at Basin Harbor Club has a strong connection with water, which is why we made Lake Champlain the focal point of our resort activities. Our weddings are no exception.

Sometimes the best part of a reception is enjoying the company of old friends and distant family, and for others it is having the option to step away from it all, forgetting the daily routine to enjoy a quiet, serene view. Our personal favorite, the view under the bright moon, when the natural light glistens off the lake enamors city-slickers and nature lovers alike.


At BHC, we are skilled at intertwining the water into the events of your special day or weekend. Guests can enjoy a rehearsal dinner beside the lake, and wander to a beautiful bonfire after dessert. Live music is available to complement your relaxing meal on the North Dock. If your passion is boating or yachting, we can weave in a nautical or maritime theme to accent your personal past with the water. Let us add the special personal touches that will make memories for years to come.


Lake Champlain and the Adirondack Mountains embody the natural landscape of BHC, and we have thought of some very imaginative ways to utilize what surrounds us every day. Our tented receptions by the lake provide the seamless backdrop for people to kick up their heels, loosen their ties and get moving on the dance floor.


If your bridal party loves the water, we can take everyone out for a smooth ride on a vintage Chris Craft boat for amazing photos. We can snap shots of you and your soon-to-be-spouse enjoying a kiss below the majestic sunset over the Adirondack Mountains. When you are surrounded by the raw beauty of Vermont, everyone feels a sense of rejuvenation and is ready for the perfect picture. You can plan a cocktail reception on the boat itself if you’d like and sip a refreshing beverage as you relax overlooking the water.


There are plenty of ways for you to mix and match the many amenities Basin Harbor Club offers its guests. From leisurely activities like narrated lake cruises to more active happenings like kayaking, we can help you plan every moment of your wedding so you leave having experienced the true wonder of Lake Champlain. We’ve watched it turn countless weddings into dreams, and we invite you to let Lake Champlain & Basin Harbor Club do the same for yours.
