If you’re looking for a secluded yet conveniently located getaway for you and your guests, where everything is handled on-site, Edson Hill is worth a look.
Tucked in the hills of Stowe, the historic country estate encompasses 38 acres of open meadows and forest with panoramic mountain views. You’ll feel like you’re in the middle of nowhere, but the restaurants and activities of Stowe are only a stone’s throw away.
When you book a wedding at Edson Hill, you reserve the entire space. The wedding couple and up to 50 guests can stay on-site in the property’s 23 guest rooms. The grounds include a pond with a dock, swimming pool, horse barn, Nordic ski center, and wooded trails.
Weddings are outdoor affairs at Edson Hill. The upper meadow can accommodate a tented event for up to 220 guests. Rehearsal dinners are often held on the patio off the Manor House, which can host up to 60 people. A retractable awning makes summer rain showers a non-issue.
With its own executive chef and hospitality team, Edson Hill handles all of the catering. Outside vendors are permitted if they offer a genuinely unique product, such as wood-fired pizza or Ben & Jerry’s ice-cream scoopers.
The inn works exclusively with North Country Cakes for wedding cakes, but customizable options are also available, such as a doughnut bar or macaroons.
An on-site coordinator is offered as part of the inn’s wedding package.
“They will create your day-of timeline and be the point of contact for your vendors, review your contracts, and understand exactly who is doing what, when and where,” said Allison Casey, Edson Hill’s event sales manager and marketing coordinator. “In the end, they pull together all the pieces of the puzzle so that you, your family and your friends can relax and fully enjoy the wedding you’ve been dreaming of.”
