A Weekend Destination Wedding That’s Close to Home.
Weekend Destination Weddings. They’re the hottest new trend in wedding planning and Owl’s Nest Resort, in Campton, New Hampshire, is the perfect spot for couples looking to escape to an idyllic location for the event of a lifetime.
Accessibility, amenities, activities, and on-site accommodations are important factors for couples to consider when choosing a weekend destination wedding venue. “Many couples think a destination wedding in an exotic location is a great idea,” says Abby Dahlen, wedding coordinator for Owl’s Nest Resort. “But, they quickly realize that the financial burden combined with complicated travel logistics is often too much for many family and friends.” Couples, and their guests, get the best of both worlds at accessible venues such as Owl’s Nest Resort in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.
More than a Reception Venue
Situated on 600+ acres with panoramic mountain and forest views, Owl’s Nest Resort is only two hours north of Boston and one hour from Manchester-Boston Regional Airport. An on-site restaurant and bar, luxury rental homes, outdoor pool and fitness room, 18-hole Nicklaus Design golf course, and endless outdoor pursuits await guests of all ages.
“Couples spend months, if not years, planning a wedding,” says Dahlen. “Then, the wedding day is over in the blink of an eye. Many couples feel as though they say their goodbyes right after their hellos!” The wedding destination weekend offers couples and their guests that meaningful, unscripted time where people can connect and enjoy the experience—and the venue—on their own time.
A Weekend Designed for You
At Owl’s Nest Resort, couples can kick off the weekend destination wedding with a welcome cocktail party, casual barbeque, or rehearsal dinner. With the central White Mountains location, couples and guests may plan any number of outings, from spa days, to tubing down the Pemigewasset, to an enjoyable round of 18.
“While the couple is busy getting ready for their big day in our rental homes, guests have the enviable task of deciding just what to do with their free time,” says Dahlen. The mountain backdrop ceremony site and extravagant tented pavilion create a dream reception venue with some of the best views on the resort. Reminisce about the excitement and say your “goodbyes” the next day with a farewell breakfast in the clubhouse.
For guests staying on-site, the 4-bedroom/4.5-bathroom, 2,200-square-foot rental homes feature an open concept living and dining room, high-end appliances, fully equipped kitchens, and outdoor spaces with propane grills and Adirondack chairs. Guests will enjoy the neighborhood feel, the many comforts of home, and the spectacular sunsets.
