Outdoor and Indoor Wedding Locations
Plan your wedding at our Adventure Resort with indoor and outdoor venue options.

Hold your ceremony in front of the beautiful stone fireplace in our open timbered classic Maine lodge.

Wedding Receptions & Rehearsal Dinners

Professional Catering, Elegant Service in the Woods
Wedding receptions are commonly held inside the main lodge at Northern Outdoors Adventure Resort in The Forks, with room for approximately 130 guests in this classic New England lodge venue. Others rent tents and hold their entire event outdoors in the Wilderness Field! We like rustic, but we like elegant with it. After all, it is your wedding day! Brides and grooms rest easy (and so does everyone else) when the catering is absolutely perfect: practiced, poised, fun, and accompanied by great food and beverages. With your own event planner, not a detail will be missed with a wedding at Northern Outdoors!


See those hardwood floors? They “rock” for great dancing when the party gets going. This is where live entertainment plays on weekends year-round at Northern. Want to add live music for your special day – no problem!
