Wolfeboro Inn
Wolfeboro, New Hampshire

Situated on a private beach on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee, the Wolfeboro Inn pulls out all the stops for celebrations. Start things off right by booking a private rehearsal-dinner cruise aboard the Winnipesaukee Belle, the resident 65-foot paddlewheel boat. The next day, hold your ceremony at the property’s lakeside gazebo, surrounded by blooming gardens in the shadow of the Belknap Mountains, before savoring contemporary fare from executive chef Hoke Wilson, a Rainbow Room alum, at your reception. Which, by the way, will be perfect in any of Wolfeboro’s three dramatic venues: the 1812 Room overlooking the water (up to 70 guests), the fireplace-adorned Winnipesaukee Ballroom (up to 155 guests), or a glamorous tent pitched on the manicured lawn (up to 220 guests).
