We make it easy for you to enjoy the event of your dreams and your guests will love their experience here.
Guest Capacity and Availability
We can accommodate a wedding and reception for up to 120 people. The Lodge’s main dining room capacity is 120. In peak wedding season, minimum capacity requirements may be in effect.
We are available for weddings in spring and fall with the exception of certain holiday periods. The best time for us to do large outdoor weekend weddings is during the warmer months of spring or early fall. Indoor weddings and receptions work well during any season.
A Garnet Hill Wedding Might Look Like This…
Festivities begin with guests arriving Friday afternoon to discover the resort’s many outdoor activities (canoeing, tennis, beach, hiking, biking, etc.) or to relax in one of the inn’s many quiet corners.
The celebration continues Friday evening with a rehearsal dinner. There are many possibilities at Garnet Hill to create unique rehearsal dinners. Options include a barbecue, plentiful buffet style dinner on the front porch, or a sit down dinner in front of the fireplace.
After a hearty country breakfast Saturday morning, guests are free to indulge in more of the resort’s activities or explore the local surroundings. Brown bag lunches, a sandwich buffet or our casual pub menu can be available to guests for lunch. An afternoon or early evening ceremony outside on the lawns is the ideal time to get the most from the Lodge’s spectacular views. A champagne toast to the bride and groom with the sun setting in the horizon is the perfect way to begin the evening’s festivities. After all of the traditional photo ops, guests continue the celebration with dinner and dancing to the beat of a live band or DJ.
Sunday breakfast, served a little bit later than the usual breakfast, is the ideal time for all of the guests to congratulate the new bride and groom and to bid farewell before departing.

Don, Mindy and the entire Garnet Hill Staff,
Thank you so much for the outstanding work and courteous service at Frank & Kan’s recent wedding celebration at Garnet Hill Lodge. It was a wonderful weekend and exceeded our expectations. The food was delicious, the service top-notch, and the kind and thoughtful treatment everyone received from all of the staff will never be forgotten. We will be sure to rave about Garnet Hill’s performance and I know our guests will too. Many people said it was the best wedding they have ever attended and you all had a lot to do with that. See you all soon since Garnet Hill Lodge is an annual part of the Dolce family vacation plans.

Mindy, Brent and Don:
How do you say thank you to the people that made the best day of your life possible? I’m not sure, but I plan to do so by telling friends how incredible Garnet Hill is and, of course, coming back to visit for lunch, dinner, weekends! You were all fabulous throughout the wedding weekend. Kasey and I just got back from our honeymoon and the whole time we were raving about how the wedding turned out. That was in huge part thanks to you and your staff. We were never wanting for anything, whether that was a telephone for a family member or a bottle of champagne 😉 We are so thankful for all the hard work and time you put into making our wedding such a success. See you again soon!
Lauren and Kasey, 9/27/2014
