Lakes Region

This tranquil, woodsy New Hampshire area is perfect “for people looking for a natural, outdoor setting that is truly beautiful in any season,” says Emily St. Pierre, owner of Concord’s All the Fuss Events.

LOCATION TO BOOK

Tucked between Lake Winnipesaukee and the mountains, Mill Falls at the Lake, in Meredith, has two ballrooms to choose from for your wedding celebration. The property is really its own lakeside world, with four inns, seven restaurants, 12 boutiques, and the full-service Cascade Spa on property.

GATHERING SPOT

Turn your rehearsal dinner into a floating party aboard the M/S Mount Washington. Sunset cruises on Lake Winnipesaukee feature live music—with themes like ’70s Dance Fever and ’80s Wave—and a buffet. Sunday champagne-brunch cruises, meanwhile, are great for leaf-peeping.

LOCAL FAVOR

For gift baskets and all things maple—candy, syrup, and more—tap Meredith’s Moulton Farm.

GUEST EXCURSION

There’s no better way to see the region’s famed foliage than with a ride on the Winnipesaukee Scenic Railroad—especially if you opt for the presidential-class service. Sink into the easy chairs and couches of the restored 1954 Pullman Car while personal stewards attend to your every need. It’s the good life, Granite State–style.
