Why Choose ECHO to Host your Event

With our pristine Lakefront location, breathtaking views of the Adirondacks, three floors filled with sparkling aquariums, and elegant indoor and open-air spaces for ceremonies, dining, and dancing, ECHO is one of the most memorable and unique locations in Vermont.

Only at ECHO:
ECHO is nestled on the shores of Lake Champlain and is within easy walking distance of both the Church Street Marketplace - our award-winning pedestrian mall - and several of Burlington’s premier hotels (ECHO is also within an easy drive or walk to dozens of charming inns and B&Bs.) Expecting out-of-town guests? Excellent! ECHO is just 3.7 miles from the Burlington International Airport.

ECHO attracts guests who appreciate our flawless blend of physical beauty and cosmopolitan flair, and you’ll see that first hand with every step of planning your event with us!

Only at ECHO can you hold an elegant, classy event with a hip, environmentally conscious vibe. You and your guests will love our dedication – we’ve “gone green” in many ways since our conception – and you’ll love knowing your event is actually helping the environment and community. ECHO is a LEED certified building, the first such building to achieve LEED certification in the State of Vermont. LEED means our entire facility is intricately designed in a way that minimizes water and energy consumption.

Thank you for your interest in ECHO as the place to hold your special event - we appreciate your stewardship! With each guest that walks through our doors, we’re increasing the number of people who hear our message and learn the value of our Lake stewardship - and, perhaps, create new ambassadors for this important message.
