Imagine the photo opportunities on this beautiful staircase...
The chalet is a perfect place to host a small, intimate ceremony! Elopements, weddings with less than 25 guests, baptisms, vow renewals, commitment ceremonies and more can be held in front of the 22 foot tall river rock fireplace inside. Get married on the Chalet's wrap-around deck like Romeo & Juliet with your guests seated down below and invite more guests to witness your love story take the next step. Or tie the knot or renew your vows lakeside at the boat landing across the road. Always imagined a Bohemian style wedding under a canopy of trees or in a golden tamarack marshland? You'll find those options here as well. In 2019 we will be adding an outdoor garden setting complete with arbor and waterfall. Onsite ministry, photography and keyboardist services are available. Outside professionals are welcome. Please contact us to discuss your dreams and how we can make them come true! Simple elopement packages including officiant and photography services start at just $950.
Photos Virtually Anywhere on the Property
Basswood Chalet & Guesthouse is located on 10 acres across the road from Lower Long Lake, on the north side. Our property contains a wide variety of trees, meaning a rich background for photo sessions for seniors, engagement photos and other pictures. You'll find basswood (of course), white birch, sugar maples, tamaracks and more. The lake is glacially-formed, meaning it is a clearer lake with fewer weeds and a sandy bottom that helps reflect the blue sky easily. Be very quiet and maybe the deer, turkeys or other wildlife may join you!
