    Exactly the wedding we wanted

    Deciding to go ahead with our destination wedding during a pandemic was probably the craziest thing ever. Bret and Caleb were by our side the whole way. Open to whatever we needed. Besides am amazing locating in the wood and on the river the owner and his team became our family. I’m so glad we met Bret and his wife Nancy. Their log cabin provided an amazing backdrop to our 5 day wedding celebrations and will be our friends for life. Already planning anniversary trip next summer.

    Alaska Wedding

    My husband and I got married here in June of this year after a year and a half of planning. We found it through a wedding fair (pre-Covid) and what enticed us about this venue was the “all inclusive” aspect. Having been in several weddings before, the allure of being able to have everything in one place and the inclusion of services provided was attractive.

    The venue itself is beautiful. It was very nice to have our friends and family in one place with the flexibility of being able to stay the night. Sitting down by the river on the metal dock brought us a wonderful sense of peace amid the chaos of putting the production of a wedding together.

    Our problem mainly lies with the wedding package. I would recommend to anyone renting this venue to get your wedding necessities elsewhere. I promise you, it will be far cheaper to rent tables, chairs, linens, and dinnerware from a rental service in Kenai or Soldotna. We paid $2500 for the above listed items (with set up and clean up services) which were not received with additional fees being quoted for moving items from the ceremony to the reception (approximately 500 feet) the day of.

    When we brought our concerns to the general manager it took over two months to get a response. I felt that over the year and a half leading up to our wedding we had build up a good rapport with him so I was surprised that It took so long to hear back. When we did receive the answer it was dismissive and defensive with a comment of “our expectations were too high”. This was incredibly disappointing. When you spend a decent sum of money on services in the expectation that they will be provided and some of the services are not, you expect some level of understanding. The view from the property is worth the price of the venue itself but we would highly recommend seeking outside resources and not relying on the venue for the additional wedding services. Especially if you are not looking to add stress on a day meant to be blissful.
