LAKEFRONT LUXURY

Quimby Country
Head count Up to 100 seated
Price Starting at $12,000, plus food and drink

Let the soft lapping of water on the shores of Big Averill Lake stand in as your wedding bells on your special day at Quimby Country. A landmark of Northeast Kingdom hospitality since 1893, Quimby Country boasts years of experience in making the most of its forested lakeside landscape. Attentive staff work to perfect every detail of your wedding—whether it’s coordinating a lighthearted prewedding archery outing or walking you through the grounds ahead of time to bring your matrimonial vision to life. You don’t even have to fret over the food: The venue’s on-site chef excels in custom fare, whipping up everything from slow-roasted prime rib to a Maine lobster bake. Unwind at the end of the night with drinks around a toasty fire, built with complimentary campfire provisions.

VINTAGE VISTAS

The Notch House
Head count Up to 120 seated
Price Starting at $3,600, plus food and drink

Nestled in the grandiose Willoughby Gap, the Notch House promises a scenic alpine backdrop for your postnuptial soiree. While it underwent a sweeping renovation in 2010, the Notch House clings to Old World pastoral charm with endearing details such as floral wallpaper, clawfoot dining tables, and a sprawling wraparound porch. Let the 19th-century estate be your blank canvas—after all, it’s entirely yours for the weekend. Host an airy and whimsical reception under the high-pole century tent pitched seasonally on the western lawn, an ideal spot for dining and dancing. Or loop around to the northern boundary of the estate for a tranquil lakeside experience. Situated within the 7,000-plus acres of Willoughby State Forest, the Notch House ensures you’ll be surrounded not only by your loved ones, but by plenty of lush maples and elms, too.

PASTORAL PARADISE

Inn at Mountain View Farm
Head count Up to 200 seated
Price Upon request

Kick off years of wedded bliss with your new spouse on a homestead already rich in history. Located within the Darling Estate Historic District, the Inn at Mountain View Farm prides itself on its quintessentially “Vermont” architecture (think: apple-red barns with quirky weathervanes and stately brick buildings on sprawling emerald lawns). The Morgan Horse Barn, complete with horse stalls and exposed beams, offers an elegant take on the classic barn-reception setting. For a more intimate space, opt for the Willoughby Room in the property’s inn—a former creamery that still holds an old steam engine once used to power the churns. And the views prove as staggering as the inn’s name suggests: Perched atop a hill, the venue offers panoramic vistas of Willoughby Gap and acres of golden forests—the perfect setting for an evening of romance.
