  • You will not find a more fun place to get married and a better team to help you make it happen. Basin Harbor is an absolute dream of a venue - where all of your guests can stay onsite all weekend. There are so many fun activities on the menu - from boating to yoga to pub trivia to field day games (we did it all). Basin Harbor accommodated every single one of our summer camp wedding dreams. Anne and Ellen were so amazing to work with throughout the wedding planning process. They are so thoughtful, professional, organized, and accommodating and always available to help. They executed everything absolutely perfectly, and I didn't have to worry about a thing during my entire wedding weekend. The food was amazing, the drinks were tasty, and the flow from event to event was flawless. We couldn't have been happier that we chose this venue and were able to work with this great team. We are so jealous of anyone who gets to plan a great party here... we wish we could do it all over again!
