One of the best parts of a wedding at Summit Lodge Resort is the ability to have all of your friends and family stay on site here at the lodge in Killington. Plan a welcome party when you all arrive for utilizing O’Dwyer’s Irish Pub & Restaurant, our poolside bar and outside terrace and grill.

Rehearsal dinners can be a small intimate family affair in our Country Room or a more informal gathering with a menu designed by you and our executive chef.

Our wedding gazebo is located perfectly with a backdrop of Killington Mountain. Should the weather not cooperate with us, we can seamlessly relocate into the family room still with a backdrop of Killington just through the glass doors behind you. 

As we are a destination wedding venue we offer live streaming of the ceremony with sound for those guests who couldn’t make it on your special day. Your loved ones will simply log on to our website with a unique password to enjoy your ceremony live and in real time.

After your ceremony the bridal party can head down to O’Dwyer’s Public House for a cocktail and a moment to regroup and celebrate. The wedding guests will be escorted to the terrace and poolside bar where they can enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres inside or out, depending on the weather.

Our Green Mountain Room can host up to 220 people for your wedding reception with many configurations depending on the number of guests. Your guests will be able to dine and dance the night away without having to worry about driving or ubering to other accommodations.

The after party is held in O’Dwyer’s Public House downstairs so no need to drive, Uber or travel off site. For those wishing to carry on the party, we offer an array of late night snacks prepared by our Executive Chef.

We have two fire pits: one is propane and on every night for all to enjoy, the other real wood fire pit is available on request for you and your guests to enjoy s’mores or just the smell of a real fire.

Wedding Reviews

My husband and I were looking for a nice rustic place for 140 people and a venue that would make our wedding very memorable. The Summit Lodge did just that, it was the perfect location/venue and the owner and staff were very accommodating and willing to work with our wishes and budget to make sure our wedding was perfect! Our wedding favors were small s'mores kits and they went out of their way to make marshmallow roasting stations for the guests, which just added the perfect touch! Full Review...

Summit Lodge is an excellent choice for a wedding. The venue has so much character and charm, fun amenities including pools, hot tub, on-site bar and pub, lawn games, bonfire, and a fantastic, attentive staff. Your guests will enjoy the laidback atmosphere and the simplicity of having all of the wedding events in a single venue.

The attention to detail on all from the staff is second to none. Full Review...

I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to Emmett O'Dwyer, Jessica Fuster, and all of the staff at The Summit Lodge for all of their help in making our daughter's Wedding Day a perfect one! I can not say enough about all of the hard work you did to make the reception go on without flaw. You did an impeccable job. The Inn looked beautiful, and the grounds looked gorgeous. Full Review...

The Summit Lodge was by far the best choice we made for the venue for our very special day. Thank you to all the staff who helped make our wedding day so amazing, and SO MUCH FUN! The Summit clearly knows what they're doing! Emmett O'Dwyer is the Summit's new owner, and they just did a ton of renovations to the reception hall space, and it all came out absolutely gorgeous (it opened the dance floor right up!).

Ever since I was a little girl I dreamed of a winter wedding. January 2018 my dream became a reality, thanks to The Summit Lodge. Emmett, Jessica, and the rest of the staff are fantastic! The food and atmosphere were amazing I still have friends and family telling me how much they enjoyed everything. Jessica and her staff were my lifesavers on the day of the wedding any that could have or did go wrong they handled quickly and professionally.  Full Review...

The Summit Lodge is perfectly rustic, yet comfortably refined. From the heated outdoor pool, to the huge Jacuzzi tub, array of lawn games, pool bar, fire pit and onsite restaurants this location has it all! Many of our guests never even left the hotel. The grounds are beautifully kept and very inviting and the whole place has a wonderfully intimate feel.
With 150 guests, mostly from out of town it was very convenient to host everything in one location.  Full Review...

The Summit Lodge was the perfect place for my wedding. The staff was amazing and worked with me the entire way. Even though it rained, they created the most beautiful setting in their living room for my special day.
