    Exceptional!!

    My family had a wonderful experience! I have read over a few reviews talking about the owners being there, the different rules, etc. The owners are very transparent and upfront about their requirements before a contract is ever signed. There were no "surprises". Patty calls, texts or emails back either right away or within a decent amount of time. The cost of the venue, for what is included, is very competitive if not better than other venders we visited who didn't offer the amenities Carver Lake did. Thank you all for making our daughter's wedding day perfect and completely dreamy!! Highly, highly recommended!!

    Cindy your words mean so much to us. We try to make every wedding all the family wants it to be. When you get this kind of recognition it makes all the hard work and long days worth it. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with others.

    Carver Lake

    As soon as we booked with Carver Lake for our wedding a month ago, we knew we made the right choice! The barn and all of the land is so gorgeous and made for beautiful pictures. Patty was an absolute joy to work with and was always more than willing to accommodate us and help out wherever she could. I would highly highly recommend Carver Lake to anyone that is working with a rather small budget but still wants a beautiful wedding!

    Carver Lake Venue's reply:

    Thank you Emily, we loved having yours and Nick's wedding here. You and your whole family were great to work with.
