Vermont's Northeast Kingdom derives its beauty from its extreme remoteness; the area surrounding Lake Willoughby remains largely untouched, is sparsely populated, and offers expansive views of the area's natural landscape. This beauty provides its own set of visitor challenges, however! Accommodations in close proximity to our celebration are limited, so please reserve yours well in advance or plan to camp in the forest surrounding the Notch House. Due to the remoteness of the area, we are unable to secure transportation to and from the Notch House.
Camping in the Willoughby State Forest Surrounding the Notch House
We would love for our friends and family to camp in the forest surrounding the Notch House, where we will be sleeping, and highly encourage you to do so! Set your tents up together (or apart, if you prefer) in a large clearing in the woods beside the house. There is a short, five minute walking path connecting the two locations, making this an excellent and festive option for those planning to imbibe in the open bar. Be safe and hang with us! There are several bathrooms and showers available on site (including a Costa Rican inspired outdoor shower!). The Notch House has a large kitchen for early morning coffee and eggs, or late night snacks.
