What an amazing wedding! Everything about it was truly perfect– from the actual event to the beautiful rural location and special weekend accommodations. The bride and groom arranged for their “younger” guests to stay at the Winding Brook Lodge in Stowe, Vermont.


The lodge was so cool! It had a rustic and cozy feel with its wooden floors and antique furnishings, but it also had many modern conveniences including a bar, a pool table, a heated swimming pool, and an outdoor hot tub. The lodge has 15 bedrooms that slept 40 people. It was quite the party house– ideal for a wedding celebration! 😉



I wish that I had taken more photos of the lodge. It was so sweet! 😀


Our room was really nice with a huge king size bed and our own private bathroom. We got the hook-up! :mrgreen:




The lodge was also perfect for karaoke





Mmmmm… keg beer!


And lots of beer games!


Friday (and Saturday) night at the lodge was a PAR-TY!

Friday night was a blast! I definitely drank my fair share of beers and stayed up WAY past my bedtime. Miraculously, however, the next morning, Mal and I woke up and went for a 3-mile run on the Stowe bike path. The run helped me sweat out some of the booze from the night before!

More to come!



  1. That lodge for the guests sounds like a great idea! I’m glad to see you had so much fun!!!!!! Especially to see you play Beirut!!! (thats what they call it where I am from…in other words Beer pong)

  2. Tina that looks Fab! it really looks like you guys had such a good time! how cool that the bride and groom had their “younger” guests stay all together. PARTY!!! haha

  3. I used to go for early morning runs after long nights out in college too. I have no idea how I did it, but I would always feel WORLDS better afterwards.

    It looks like you had so much fun and you’re looking so fit!!

  4. My fiance and I looked at Winding Brook Lodge for our upcoming 9/12 wedding. We decided on The Grand Isle Lake House (which sleeps 30), but it’s really fun to see what the festivities might have looked like there! I look forward to part II.

  5. We stayed at that lodge for my cousin’s wedding in VT. She had us stay there and the wedding took place there as well. It is a great place for a party!
