    We recently got married on Sunday September 9, 2018 at Chestnut Mountain Resort and from the blessings above, had the most perfect day! We lucked out with the weather and all. If you’re looking for a rustic, country yet elegant venue, I highly recommend Chestnut Mountain! Joan Dillion our wedding coordinator was amazing to work with. Joan was very professional and very flexiable when it came to working around our crazy work schedules! The event staff was great, the food was amazing and the atmosphere was perfect! We highly recommend looking into Chestnut for your next event!

    Great wedding venue!

    I was married here on 6/23/18. I could not have asked for a better venue. Everyone, and I mean everyone was so helpful at Chestnut. Joan is amazing and made sure that I was never over stressed about wedding planning. The food was delicious, we actually heard from multiple guests that it was the best wedding food they'd ever had! My father in law is mostly wheelchair bound which was a big concern when we chose a venue. Chestnut does not have elevators so we were nervous when we first looked at the venue but they assured us he would be taken care of. They weren't kidding. Be it golf carts or vans, they made sure he got from place to place with ease and no embarrassment! The views here are stunning, talk about awesome wedding photos! I highly recommend having your ceremony at Grand View Pointe if you can spring for it. You won't be sorry, the landscape is easily one of the most serene in Illinois! Make sure to take in a sunset while you're here, gorgeous! Don't forget this place isn't just for skiing and snowboarding, in the summer they have a ziplime, Alpine slide, Segway toirs, frisbee golf, and so much more!!!

    It was a Beautiful Day!

    Our daughter had her Wedding Ceremony overlooking the amazing view of the Mississippi! They wanted an outdoor Wedding and something not everyone else was doing. The beauty was already there and no real need to decorate! Joan and her team were so helpful in planning the big day. They had everything set up Chairs and arch ( we put flower arch flowers on) for us and even sprayed for bugs right before the ceremony. The trolly was a hit and made it fun and whimsey! We highly recommend them!
