    An absolutely can't miss!

    My fiance and I immediately fell in love, not only with the incredible charm of the venue and the neighboring Bear Lake, but the over-and-above mentality of absolutely everybody (without exception!) with whom we interfaced from Day 1. Mason, Kelsie, Callie, Rachel, Sarah -- this is an all-star team dedicated to bringing fairy tales to life. And their recommended chef? YES. That's all I need to say. Do yourself a favor and take a step off the beaten path. This might just be your venue.

    The most unique and stunning venue around!

    There couldn't be a more ideal dream wedding venue for a couple out there. As the mother-of-the-bride, I can attest to the excellent value, unique setting, and flexibility of options. The personnel were all lovely to deal with and it was just a stunning atmosphere throughout the day and evening.

    Castle Ladyhawke's reply:

    Thank you for your review Linda. We thoroughly enjoyed working with you and Emma to make her special day come to life! We hope to see you all again soon!
