Our wedding was perfect on The Spirit of Ethan Allen! The employees were courteous, helpful, and more than accommodating with anything we needed throughout the evening. The food was excellent and fresh (guests were raving about it after dinner) and they did a great job decorating the boat deck as we had planned! I would highly recommend this beautiful venue for a wedding!

The Spirit of Ethan Allen was everything I hoped for and expected. I am a critical second older bride who cannot suggest any area for improvement. The support, service, staff and wedding planner were fabulous. The food, buffet style, was raved about by our 100 guests including 2 restaurant owners. It was more decadent than a sit down meal. The decorating was done by them unseen by me prior to the ceremony and reception both on the boat and was completed exactly to my written specifications. The sunset cruise was breathtaking and a wonderful treat for all the guests.

The Spirit of Ethan Allen was an absolutely perfect choice for our wedding! We were planning a VT wedding from abroad, so wanted a venue that would take care of everything. Spirit of Ethan Allen did not disappoint! Our wedding coordinator took care of all the details and made sure that we had the perfect day. We received so many compliments on how fun and unique our wedding was. We were surrounded by the beauty of Lake Champlain and all our guests had a tremendous time. This is a great choice for VT destination weddings!

We couldn't have been happier choosing the Spirit of Ethan Allen for both our ceremony and reception site. Right from the start, we were treated with professionalism and warmth, and felt like we were in good hands. One of the selling features for us was the all-inclusive nature of this venue. Our pricing included the set up, tables and chairs, linens, and access to a coordinator. The value is unbeatable, and we really appreciate the way the entire staff handled the affair. As a bride planning my wedding from long distance, this was absolutely the best way to go.
