    Grounds of the venue were beautiful, twinkling lights under pavilion created a fairy tale atmosphere. Joanna was an absolute delight to work with to help create the wedding of my daughters dreams!

    Joanna was wonderful to work with. We were originally supposed to get married in 2021 but with deployment happening she was so easy to work with changing our date with no hassle. Any question I had she answered right away! We also used her for our flower decor and boutiques and they turned out AMAZING.

    We highly recommend using

    The Perfect Venue

    We have zero complaints! From the beginning Joanna was more than helpful. The venue provides so much beauty there were minimal decorations. The flower arrangements on the arbor, the barrels and at the ends of each bench where perfect and my bridal bouquet was exactly what I wanted!

This is one of our favorite places to DJ. The lake view and facilities are rustic yet beautiful. Being there feels more relaxing and more like a family event than being in a formal ballroom. Joanna goes out of her way providing great service to her clients. The dock area is a beautiful place to have your wedding ceremony and give your photographer a variety of options for great pictures. I can't say enough about this hidden gem of a venue!
