Located within the Mackinac State Historic Park, one might pop the big question on the terrace or the porch of the historic Island House Hotel with a spectacular view of boats gliding into the harbor, and carefree bicyclists wheeling and horse-drawn buggies moseying past on the street below. More intimate moments are found in the hideaway garden behind the hotel. Historic charm and timeless elegance bring love birds back to Island House Hotel year after year to celebrate weddings, reunions, anniversaries, and vow renewals: passing these traditions on to each generation.
Basin Harbor(1886) Vergennes, Vermont
Basin Harbor is a family-owned resort set on the stunning shores of Lake Champlain in Vermont. It is easy to reach, yet remains remote and peaceful. Basin Harbor is steeped in tradition and there’s no better tradition than the joining of two families. This 700-acre resort has a variety of locations that provide the perfect backdrop for engagements and weddings. From the Orchard Garden, filled with flowers and greenery to the Lodge Lawn with panoramic views of Lake Champlain and the Adirondack Mountains, there are plenty of places for someone to get down on one knee.
