When are these packages available?

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/welcome 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 breakfast Saturday morning, guests are free to indulge in more of the resort’s activities or explore the local surroundings.
Organize a casual event featuring a sandwich buffet or a more formally catered affair. This is the perfect way to keep the afternoon special, yet low key as you get ready for your big moment. We also offer bagged lunches if your guests would like to use this time to set off on an adventure or enjoy the lake.
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 the guests to congratulate the new bride and groom and to bid farewell before departing.
