Rock Point Center

Welcome to Rock Point Center

Nestled by the wooded shores of Lake Champlain in Vermont, Rock Point Center is your destination for meetings, conferences, weddings, and lake-front lodging. Visitors at Rock Point Center seem to uniformly share an appreciation for the beauty of the Rock Point site, and a tranquility that fosters reflection and the capacity to slow down the pace and truly listen to others. 

 

A broad sampling of our visiting organizations include: spiritual retreats and meetings of faith communities; personal growth groups; many entities within our local colleges and universities; secondary and primary schools; human service agencies; the State of Vermont; and a handful of profit sector organizations.

 

Rock Point Center is also the host of Rock Point Camp, as well as many family reunions, weddings, and memorial services. And why rush home when the Rock Point trails beckon to be explored and views of Lake Champlain savored on our 130+ acre oasis?

 

Meeting Spaces

Rock Point Center offers retreat-like meeting spaces for groups large and small. Of our six designated meeting rooms, four feature views of Lake Champlain. All meeting spaces come with WiFi access, and meeting groups are always welcome to access our outdoor areas and trails.

Meeting Rooms 

The Rock Point Center offers a total of six meeting rooms. The Bishop Booth dining room is the largest space and can fit up to 60 people at round tables or 80 people audience-style. Our Swenson Room offers space for up to 45 people, and we have three small lounges that serve as break-out rooms. 

 

Please download the Conference & Event Guide for detailed room descriptions, set up options, and locations.

While the Rock Point Center can provide a limited number of chairs, plates, and other event supplies, we often encourage couples to partner with Vermont Tent Company for things like place settings, chairs, linens, and outdoor tents.
