- Wedding: October 2012
Vermont is such a destination location for weddings, it can be hard to find a reasonably priced place. I just wanted to post some of the less used venues that I came across, not all of which I actually saw.
Ethan Allen Center at Champlain College – a former business club complete with bowling alley and pool table, we did check this one out and found it to be good for the money – $1200 for a day, but it is showing wear and tear a bit and with the number of people we anticipate, I think the venue would seem a little empty
Jeudevine Falls, Hardwick, VT – no idea how much it costs or anything, but you basically have your ceremony at a gazebo next to a waterfall and then the reception is in a tent they provide for you
Bishop Booth Conference Center, Burlington, VT – totally hidden location right on the lake, cons are that the event coordinator wanted us to know that he “couldn’t help in any way the day of”, pros are that it’s a beautiful outdoor spot and that you can sleep upwards of 60 people, the fee wasn’t clear because they don’t usually do weddings, but was somewhere around $700 and then accomodations are extra, you’d probably want to rent a tent to extend the amount of space for the reception
Tourterelle, New Haven, VT – site fee is around $1500 and then they charge per person for food and drink, pro is that everything is basically taken care of including the cake
Kestrel Farm, Barton, VT – fee is around $1500, includes a wood fired hot tub and a barn of unknown size, everything else is up to you!
Old Stone House Museum, Brownington, VT – fee is around $1500, you must rent a tent for the reception
Camp Hochelaga, South Hero, VT – no idea what the details are!
we also checked out some private homes on homeaway.com as a potential resource for cheaper sites, some specifically advertise that they are willing to do that
