Resort has big ideas, and vistas, for small weddings
The mountains surrounding the Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort are huge (and spectacular, four seasons of the year), but that doesn’t mean your wedding ceremony and reception have to be, too. Couples seeking more intimate gatherings will find wedding planners at Jiminy Peak who are happy to make that happen. Exchange your vows under the trees, by woodland flowers and a babbling brook. Or, reserve the cozy Clark Room at the Country Inn, with doors leading to a deck and mountain views, perfect for groups of 40 or less. For something slightly larger, the Fisher Room at the inn is a lounge with comfy couches and chairs and a large stone fireplace. Creative catering menus can be designed for any size group.
