    The perfect winter wedding location! Views of Denali Peak across the snow covered lake from two story floor to ceiling windows wowed our out of state guests. We were able to bring in our own caterer, decorations, and use the dock for vows. Two sweeping staircases, either side of the deck offered options for the bride to walk down the aisle in style. The outside features a multilevel deck and one area has two fire pits under a covered area which extended our party space. The large front deck was perfect for overhead drone photos! It's legal to shoot fireworks here and so they let us do that off the frozen lake. Wow!
    And, there is a lodge you can rent. It's just 100' away and sleeps 24. Jacuzzi tubs, all the kitchen equipment and dishes you need for a fun weekend! We could not be more satisfied with this venue. Exceptional!

    This resort was beautiful. I mean, absolutely gorgeous. It was the perfect, quiet place to have an intimate and romantic wedding. The staff was well-prepared and helpful. I enjoyed the ease with which they tackled obstacles and helped the day go smoothly for me.
