Let it snow! This luxurious boutique inn makes winter weddings memorable
Winter weddings and Vermont go hand-in-glove, and nowhere is that more evident than at the Reluctant Panther Inn and Restaurant. Imagine a snow-covered boutique inn, lights twinkling from the windows, greeting your guests of up to 70. Brisk air, crunching snow, warming fireplaces: It’s all part of your snow-season affair. Reserve the entire 20-room inn to feel like you are marrying in a private estate, with gourmet meals provided by the Zagat-rated restaurant. Every luxurious room in this elegant inn has a fireplace, a marble path, antique furnishings and original artwork. Nearby winter activities include everything from skiing to sleigh rides, but you may just want to stroll through the winter-wonderland village of Manchester.

Warm, inviting venues for winter weddings at this charming inn and scenic village
When snow settles over Grafton Village, it really does look like something out of a storybook: a lovely place for a winter wedding. At the historic Grafton Inn and at other village locations you have several venues to choose from for your big day, each of them picture-perfect. Across the street from the Main Inn is the Homestead Room, with a stone fireplace setting the stage for a wedding of up to 75 people. The Grafton Community Church and Brick Meeting House are also inviting spaces for ceremonies, and the Windham Parlor has a romantic atmosphere for elopement ceremonies. Have your reception at the inn’s rustic Phelps Barn, with two bars and a dance floor or, for more intimate gatherings, in one of the inn’s spacious guest houses.
