Central Vermont Reception Locations

If you are looking for a more centrally located venue for your Vermont wedding, The Lilac Inn and the Brandon Inn, both located in Brandon, Vermont, are beautiful locations. Brandon is a mere 45 minutes from Killington and Pico, and the Snowbowl at Middlebury College. Woodstock is just over an hour to the south, and Burlington just over an hour to the north. The Lilac Inn, located on Park Street, can seat up to 130 guests in their southern exposure ballroom, and also has nine guest rooms, each with a private bath. The Lilac Inn was host this past September to the Brandon is for Brides winner. The Brandon is for Brides contest gave its winners a $40,000 wedding package which included a weekend wedding, lodging, wedding attire, invitations and more. For a historical feel, the Brandon Inn may be just the right location for you. Using a combination of rooms, they can host up to 280 guests, and can provide lodging for many of those guests as well. The Brandon Inn also donated to the Brandon Bride giveaway. For more information about future events, visit The Brandon, Vermont Chamber of Commerce website.

For those seeking a weekend wedding in mid Vermont away from the bustle, The Mountain Top Inn has a beautiful main lodge with rough hewn timbers and a rustic, yet elegant appeal. Their renown Nordic Ski & Snowshoe Center, one of the oldest in the United States, offers more than 80 kilometers of trails for classic and skate skiing, back country and snowshoeing for all levels. Ice skating, sledding, dog sled tours and a horse drawn sleigh ride with their Clydesdales will await your guests, and skiing at Killington is only 11 miles away.

Want to stay where you can ski? Consider the Killington Grand Resort Hotel. Located on the mountain just a few minutes from the trails, your guests will be treated to spectacular views and a plethora of activities. The Killington Grand has numerous locations for your winter wedding and can accommodate small intimate weddings, or affairs of up to 400 people. Also located at the resort- the Killington Grand Spa. Numerous massage techniques are available including Swedish, Deep Tissue and Warm Stone. You can also get manicures and pedicures as well- a great treat for your wedding party. They also boast numerous specialty massages like Reiki and Acupressure, as well as body wraps and treatments.

For those looking to stay closer to Rutland, the Holiday Inn and the South Station restaurants are great locations for your wedding. Both are located about 25 minutes from both Killington and Okemo ski areas. For those non-skiers, shoppers can visit the Diamond Run Mall, or walk Merchant’s Row for great independent stores and restaurants. A nine screen cinema house is also located nearby. And, for those who don’t mind a little drive Rutland is only about 45 minutes from Manchester, home to many outlets and great stores. There is also the Norman Rockwell museum and the New England Maple Museum as well as many other area activities.
