Chase on the Lake was the perfect place to host our small, very intimate wedding. We worked with Jess for the entire process and she was very professional and easy going. She made the planning process very easy and stress free and was always very responsive. She went above and beyond to make sure all of our questions were answered for not only us but our guests as well. I would highly recommend working with her during your wedding planning process.Sent on 10/10/2018
We got married on September 22, 2018 and the fall colors were a great addition to our outdoor ceremony and the Walker Bay Lighthouse. We then moved to Chase on the Lake and did our reception in the waters edge room and used overflow space for our cocktail hour in the 502 restaurant.
Cocktail hour was great with lake views and excellent food. We highly recommend the caprese skewers and the pretzels with the fondue cheese. Our guests were raving about the cheese!
For dinner we moved into the Waters edge room which sat 40 of us perfectly at 4 round tables. Again we had beautiful views of the lake and access to our own private patio. We choose the almond crusted walleye, ribeye steak, loaded mashed potatoes and asparagus. The food was all very good! The mashed potatoes were a huge hit and everyone kept commenting on how good the food was.
Dancing after dinner was moved into the 502 bar where our guests enjoyed the live music. It was so nice that Chase on the Lake allowed us to do this. My husband and I like the small town bar feel and this wedding was exactly our style.
We had a beautiful sparkler send off on the beach (great photo opportunity) and followed it by some s’mores made at the fire pit on the beach. The kids loved this!
This wedding was fun, relaxed and very enjoyable not only for us but our guests as well. Chase on the Lake does a very nice job and the location and hotel are absolutely beautiful. Thank you Chase and Jess for making our wedding the best weekend ever!

Amazing! Best venue in MN
Matt and I got married last weekend at Chase on the Lake! Everything about the planning process was wonderful! We worked directly with Jess and she answered any questions we may have had! Not only is the location beautiful but our guests thoroughly enjoyed being at such an accommodating resort. The wedding venue is completely custom to your wedding style and extremely affordable! During our ceremony we had the bowling alley open for some of the night and our guests are still raving about how unique that was! This venue isn’t comparable to any other in Minnesota! You have to book at Chase on the Lake!Sent on 11/17/2018

We had an amazing wedding at Chase. The staff were friendly, accommodating and professional. The minute I sent an email it was responded to. The food was amazing and we received many raving reviews about it. Drinks were flowing and there was a great selection. Everything went off perfectly despite the colder weather! We would do it again in a heartbeat.Sent on 10/05/2018
