Get married by the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee or on a boat cruising the lake

At the historic Wolfeboro Inn on Lake Winnipesaukee, you can get married by the water, exchanging your vows in a gazebo or enchanting lower garden with views of the lake and the Belknap Mountains, then dining and dancing into the night under a Sperry tent on a lakeside lawn. Or, you can have your ceremony and/or reception on the lake, on board the inn’s Winnipesaukee Belle, a replica turn-of-the-century paddle-wheeled boat. Indoor venues include an elegant ballroom and a room with a deck overlooking the lake and gardens. Customize your menu, based on the inn’s classic New England-style cuisine with contemporary flair. Weddings include an on-site coordinator, and the inn can recommend great vendor partners for photography and other services.
