Squam Lake Destination Weddings


We offer casual elegance on the shoreline of Little Squam Lake. Our many cottage gardens and gorgeous view of the lake provide a beautiful background for your ceremony and intimate reception.

Our property is ideal for destination weddings with under 100 guests – we have a sleeping capacity of 82 people in a variety of different size cottages and cottage suites. We can provide a tent for outside gatherings with an incredible view of Squam Lake. We are happy to provide you with lists of local caterers, florists and ground transportation options. Combine your event with some local hikes, seasonal activities, boat tours and/or cultural events.

Wedding parties who are attending a different local venue or groups attending local weddings often use the flexibility of our accommodations.
