We’re just a phone call or email away.

Pricing & Availability

  • What is your availability?

    We are available from the end of August through mid June for weddings. We typically book in advance of a year out for events.

  • What are your rates for different days of the week? What about different seasons?

    Our rates are based on a full weekend rental (Friday 4pm – Sunday 12 noon). We do offer day only events during the winter months.

    Deluxe Wedding Package: $12,000 Site Fee • Covers exclusive site rental including all facilities and nearly 100 acres, with a mile of beachfront. Perfect for weddings with more than 150 guests.

    Premier Wedding Package: $6,000 Site Fee • Covers half-site rental of almost 50 private acres with major buildings and lodges and approximately 1/2 mile of spectacular sandy shoreline. Perfect for weddings with less than 125 guests.

  • Are food and beverages included in the venue site fee?

    We have a great selection of food packages to choose from that are charged in addition to the site fee. We do not offer beverage packages, but encourage you to source and bring in your own.

  • How much is the deposit to reserve the facility, and when is final payment due?

    We require a 30% deposit of your total anticipated invoice and signed contract to reserve your date. We require full payment 2 weeks in advance of your event date. We are happy to set up installment plans for balance payment.

Event Specifics

  • Do you have a list of approved or recommended vendors we can use?

    Absolutely! Although we do not require that you use our recommended vendors, we can help to connect you to local and high quality vendors that are familiar with our facility. We do require that you use our catering services.

  • Are there any noise or end time restrictions?

    We encourage you to make the most of your time with family and friends, as long as noise is at a respectful level to our neighbors after hours.

  • Will your staff be involved in setting up and breaking down the event spaces? In what capacity?

    Our staff will take care of most of the event space set up and break down for both the ceremony and reception sites. We’ll set your tables, place centerpieces and ensure that the space is both functional and beautiful. In the cases where couples add a lot of their own decor to existing set ups, we’ll ask you to help in making sure that is removed at the end of the weekend.

  • How many bathrooms are there? Will we need to rent additional portable restrooms?

    We have plenty of indoor bathroom facilities in our reception spaces. No need to rent extras!

  • What is the backup plan for inclement weather?

    With multiple lodges and indoor spaces we have the capacity to move things inside quickly, easily and with no stress!

  • Can I bring my own wine, beer or champagne, and is there a corkage fee if I do? Can I bring in other alcohol?

    Absolutely! This is a great cost savings for our couples. We do not charge a corkage, but do require that you use a licensed and insured bartending company if you choose to serve hard liquor at any point over the weekend.

  • Who will be our point person as we plan our wedding? Who will be our point person on our wedding day?

    We have a great team in place that will support you every step of the way. Our wedding co-ordinator will be your main point of contact during the planning process, and in addition to being there for your wedding, will be sure to connect you with the team member that will be your on-site contact for the duration of the wedding weekend.

  • Are tables, linens, chairs, plates, silverware and glassware provided, or will I have to rent them myself?

    We provide all reception ware, with the exception of table cloths and napkins. We provide almost everything you need for a spectacular event, but some couples do choose to rent items such as chairs to fit their vision for the event.

  • What is the food and beverage cost on a per-person basis? What is the tax and service charge?

    Per-person food costs are determined upon menu selection, but start at $18 per person for non-reception meals. We charge a 9% State of NH Meals and Rooms Tax, and a 20% service charge on all meals; both of these are included in your invoice.

  • Can we do a food tasting prior to finalizing our menu selection? If so, is there an additional charge?

    We provide a menu tasting for all our couples, at no charge for up to 4 people. We aim to have your wedding weekend finalized at your tasting, so that you continue to plan your event, stress free!

  • Can I bring in a cake from an outside cake maker or must I use a cake made on the premises? Is there a cake-cutting fee?

    We do not provide a wedding cake service – so encourage you to connect with one of our local bakeries. We do not charge a cake cutting fee. All cakes, like our facility, must be Nut Free.

  • Does the venue have liability insurance?

    Yes, but we do require all couples to provide us with their own Certificate of Liability Insurance.

  • How are overnight guest accommodations handled?

    Our couples get to create a sleeping chart as well as a seating chart! You will be responsible for placing your guests in our cabins, as well as collecting their reservations for overnight stays. We have some nifty ways for you to handle this when the time comes.
