Arrowwood is a no brainer when it comes to planning you wedding. They do an amazing job organizing and they are very responsive at all hours of the day. They set up the ballroom for you. Bonus!
Shari is amazing!
Thanks Arrowwood for making my day even better than I had imagined!

Arrowwood was an absolutely perfect location for our wedding. The minute we arrived on site, we were catered to, making everything so smooth and easy. We had the greatest weekend without any stresses or headaches because Shari and all her amazing staff were incredible. Shari was so organized and detailed and truly helped to make our day fabulous! We would recommend this venue to anyone, especially to those couples wanting a destination wedding without having to leave the state of Minnesota.

Arrowwood was an amazing place to have our wedding! Shari, the event planner, was always easy to get a hold of and sure to help out anyway she could. Shari was amazing to work with. Everything from the rehearsal to the gift opening was taken care of with such care. I didn't have to worry about a thing. The ceremony was beautiful, the food was delicious, and everything in between was perfect. I am so thankful we chose Arrowwood. If I had to do it over, I would do it the exact same way. It was very convienent to have the ceremony, reception, and lodging all in one area.

We were so happy with the entire process from the 'taste testing' for our food choices to the final day of the wedding. Katie did a fabulous job accommodating my daughter's wishes to make it a wedding she totally wanted! Many family and friends traveled a long distance so it was so great to keep everything at one place. Thanks to the entire staff for a fun and wonderful experience. We would highly recommend holding an event here.

Wonderful!! Everyone was very helpful. The Ceremony, Social Hour and Reception in the Itasca Ballroom were absolutely beautiful, every detail was perfect and the additional touches were amazing. I could not recommend a better venue for a wedding!

Arrowwood was the perfect place for our wedding. We were able to have a cocktail hour out on the lawn and the weather was perfect so our guests loved being able to spend time by the lake and mingle before going into the ballroom. Sheri was great to work with and always responded to my emails right away! I would definitely recommend Arrowood to my friends and family.

I had both my ceremony and reception at Arrowwood and I couldn't have asked for a better venue. The wedding coordinator is very helpful and returns calls/emails immediately. They were also very flexible with my last minute plans. The ballroom was decorated beautifully...better than I could have ever imagined! The food was AMAZING! I can't say enough about Arrrowwood! I would highly recommend it to anyone!

Friday night at Arrowwood is pasta bar night. You get to pick the noodles, the sauce, and the vegetables and meat in your own dish and they cook it right in front of you. The price also includes a dessert table.

We were able to use a private room and it was a great place to get the party started :)

We had our reception at Arrowwood Resort this weekend. There were a few hiccups in the planning phases, but they were responsive in correcting them. When the wedding weekend came up they made it such a stress-free experience and set up and took down everything! They were super flexible and we had many MANY comments on how smoothly everything went. Lots of guests commented on how friendly all of the staff were and what a difference that makes for the atmosphere. The food was great, and family and friends stayed the whole weekend to golf, sit by the firepits, and swim. Our family is considering using them for our next reunion because they enjoyed the place so much! Thank you Arrowwood!!!

The staff at the reception were rude to my guests, and told my guests what they would get for cake no questions asked, even though my guests told them they don't eat chocolate cake they refused to give them a different flavor and gave them some attitude regarding it (the two staff they complained about were female and were younger staff members. They were very rude to my parents and grandparents), even though that was the reason for us buying a cake with 4 different flavors so the guests would have choices. that was very rude of them Joel and I felt and the guests felt that too that complained to us about them. Besides the staff at the reception everyone else was very considerate and helpful.

Arrowwood was not always responsive via e-mail in the planning stages, but they and their staff did a fantastic job the weekend of our wedding in setting up and taking down for us. They were very friendly and professional at the event, and flexible to meet our needs.
