Jimbo's Club in Brant Lake, NY
Best time for foliage: September 20th to October 20th
Wedding 411: If you're nostalgic for the carefree days of summer camp, you (and up to 150 guests) can take over this Adirondack Mountains club for the entire weekend. Since the property serves as a girl's camp during the summer, you and your guests will have access to all sorts of activities (horseback riding, canoeing, lanyard-making) with a few of the camp's staffers on hand to act as "counselors". In lieu of a formal rehearsal dinner, host a softball game followed by a beachside cookout—the property is situated on a 26-acre peninsula on Brant Lake, so you'll get gorgeous views of the changing trees all along the shoreline. Wedding ceremonies can be held at the property's waterside chapel or on the lawn overlooking the lake and surrounding mountains. Move to the restaurant's terrace for cocktails, then into the rustic dining room for the reception. End the evening with fireworks over the lake or a bonfire on the beach.
Fees: Weekend wedding packages range from $15,000 to $35,000 and include exclusive use of the entire property.
