The Margate Resort on Winnipesaukee has been providing happy couples with the weddings of their dreams for over 50 years. As a family owned resort, we pay attention to every last detail helping to create the perfect wedding. From food selection and seating arrangements to recommending professional vendors, we take the guesswork out of planning your special day.



What we do well:


At The Margate Resort, we feel that our ability to show all of our prices upfront for our couples is a positive attribute.

Our couples have their own personal coordinator from the initial meeting through the wedding day. We feel this eliminates any third party confusions.


What separates us from other venues:

We have over 400 feet of beautiful beach to be the back drop for your special day.

We have both indoor and outdoor locations for your reception

We do not have any food and beverage minimums

Our prices are guaranteed from initial deposit through the wedding day.


What we feel are our strong features:

We only hold one wedding ceremony at a time.

We have been family owned since 1952.

We have beautifully landscaped grounds right on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee. Read less

We had the best experience at the Margate for our wedding. My family was coming in from all over the country and this place had all 3 things we needed and reasonably priced. We chose to do our rehearsal dinner, ceremony, and reception along with having everyone able to stay at one location. Everything we needed and asked for was only a request away. It rained on our wedding day(good luck) and we had to cancel our bonfire. Our wedding coordinator, Beth, didn't even blink an eye, had a plan all worked out so that we could continue on enjoying our evening and keep partying. If anything did go wrong we didn't notice because Beth had everything under control. For a reception of 90-100 this place had the best of everything, great views, great staff, great location, and more.

This Place was GREAT! We looked at a total of 7 venue's and The Margate was by far the most beautiful AND the least expensive. The Hotel was clean, the Staff was friendly and accommodating, the beach bar was a HUGE hit with my family and guests that needed a place to hang out while we were rehearsing. The most impressive thing about this whole experience was Beth, who was our wedding coordinator. She was amazing!! She had the wedding choreographed down to a SCIENCE! I cant say enough about her. She was truley dedicated to making sure our wedding day was perfect, and looking back, it was. I highly recommend this place

We had our ceremony on the private beach and our reception in the pavilion, which could not have been more perfect for our small intimate wedding. The view was stunning and the fireworks were amazing. Our guests are still talking about how beautiful the venue was. Caroline was very accommodating and a pleasure to work with from the beginning of my planning until my wedding day.

My husband and I got married at the Margate on Oct 12, 2013. I don’t know anyone that can say their wedding was perfect – because something inevitably goes awry. But I can. Our wedding weekend was perfect -- it was everything we wanted and more. This was due in large part to our wedding planner Nicole. We would heartily recommend Nicole and the Margate to anyone who asks. Nicole is exceptional at her job and it was a true pleasure to work with her. She went above and beyond the call of duty at every turn.

In addition, my husband and I could not have been more pleased with how well our guests were taken care of by the entire Margate staff – we heard nothing but raves from everyone in attendance.

If you choose The Margate for your wedding, and you have Laurie Grubbs as a coordinator, sit back, relax, and don't worry about a thing. She was absolutely amazing!! From minor details to the big day, she was there to answer any and all questions I had. They have the best caterer for function dinners as well. The food for my wedding was out of this world.
Everything was spectacular. Highly recommend The Margate for you future wedding!!!!!!!!

I had an absolute amazing and beautiful wedding ceremony in the Lakeside Pavilion at the Margate Resort! My reception was held in the Grand Ballroom which worked well for the number of guests we were expecting and the big dance floor we wanted! Working with my wedding coordinator Laurie Grubbs made the whole wedding planning process less stressful and complete! Laurie always answered all of my e-mails and messages quickly and promptly with detailed information to put my mind at ease. Laurie was always willing to go above and beyond to help me with my wedding and all of the extras that I wanted to include for the ceremony and reception. I was honestly amazed and tearful when I was walking into my ceremony and the reception how Laurie and my mother were able to bring my wedding dreams to light without any of my help in the decorating. The Margate was an easy decision for me because I was able to have my "beach" themed wedding, ceremony and reception all in one location, and the assistance of an amazing wedding coordinator! I would highly recommend the Margate for future weddings!

The Margate was amazing! The venue speaks for itself when you see it. The lake is beautiful and the pavillion where the ceremony takes place is just perfect. I chose to have a tented reception on the lawn and I feel its the only way to do your wedding on the lake! The Margate offers many extras for after your reception or even the night before. We chose to have karaoke in the lounge the night before the wedding and a pool party after the reception. We also chose to have fireworks towards the end of our reception. I have seen many many fireworks displays in my lifetime but this one tops them all! We were nervous as to what we would get for the money but it was well worth it! I worked with Nicole and Aimee and they were both great. I sent many emails over my planning process and both were very responsive. I had some ideas that they had never done before but worked with my vision to help make my day a success. Nicole was there for my family and I all day during the wedding. She was everywhere! In terms of the hotel rooms they tend to vary in size depending on which building you choose and what bed option you choose. You are barely in your room but I would suggest viewing a few rooms before making your selections.

My husband and I were looking for a "destination" wedding without the travel involved! We stumbled upon The Margate and we knew this is exactly what we wanted! A casual, but still elegant venue to host our flip flop wedding! We got married right on the beach! Had our reception in the tent that sits directly on the water! Ended our wedding with a fireworks display and had an after party bon fire with pizza right on the beach! Our wedding coordinator Laurie was SUPERB! Start to finish she followed through, was most helpful and professional! An absolute gem! But don't want to leave out Aimee Jones who may be the Sales Manager but nothing salesy about her! She provided all the info we needed and helped see our wedding through! In addition, the food was provided by Curt's Caterers and was so yumm! Our guests were happy it was a buffet and that they could go up for seconds! But what stands out above all was the outstanding efforts by the staff in response to a very unexpected MONSOON that took us all by surprise! The staff ran around DRENCHED mind you securing the tent and keeping all calm! A MAGNIFICENT JOB, to all at The Margate! Our guests of about 135 from 13 being the youngest to nearly 84 years old said it was THE BEST wedding they had ever been to! Best compliment ever! My husband and I and our family n friends can't wait to return to celebrate our 1 year anniversary! :)
