Hi! We are from NYC but looking to get married probably in Connecticut or Mass (or anywhere within a few hours from NYC or Boston, I guess). We really want to get married somewhere where most of our guests (say, 50-75 ideally, at least 20-30) could stay on site with us, either in separate cabins or in a hotel/inn-type setting that would ideally be exclusively ours. We've been to weddings like this (and LOVED them--it's like going to summer camp with your best friends, but fancier!), so we know they exist, but we're having trouble finding any.
I know I said "fancier," but we actually aren't looking for a fancy wedding. We're on a budget, and we don't need any bells and whistles. Just an attractive location and adequate lodging (we've even considered actual summer camps with camp cabins for lodging). The venues that have appealed the most to us so far, for example, have been barns--but we can't find any that provide enough lodging on site!
Any ideas? Thanks!
