Weddings at Chippewa Retreat Resort offers the perfect lakeside setting for your wedding day. A beautifully manicured and landscaped lawn overlooking Lake Manitowish, providing a breathtaking backdrop for an outdoor ceremony. After the ceremony, you and your wedding party along with all of your invited guests can then gather for an outside reception around the pool and have cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. The pool is available for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres from June 16th to October 15th. When the pool is not available, the cocktails and hors d’oeuvres will occur in the lounge and bar. After cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, everyone can then move on to dinner and dancing. If the weather doesn’t cooperate, you have two options; one, rent a tent or two, if we can accommodate the number in your wedding, we can do the ceremony inside for a nominal charge that pays for the reorganization of furniture so the wedding and reception can happen in the same venue. The main dining room can hold up to 170 guests for an inside wedding.
The lodge, completed in the fall of 2014, can comfortably host and cater up to 280 guests seated for a dinner reception. Our staff of creative and attentive event designers, along with a recommended caterer whom you will work with directly, are committed to making your wedding day at Chippewa Retreat Resort spectacular!

Perfect wedding venue
Chippewa Retreat is the most beautiful venue for a wedding. My guests were blown away by the lakeside ceremony, cocktail hour by the pool and lovely lodge for the reception.Sent on 08/23/2019

My husband and I had our wedding ceremony and reception at Chippewa Retreat Resort this June. From the moment our guests arrived they began declaring Chippewa Retreat Resort as “a little slice of heaven.” Every expectation we had going into our wedding weekend was blown away by how fabulous the entire experience was. The staff at Chippewa Retreat redefined accommodating. The owner was present throughout the weekend and was clearly committed to making everyone’s experience a positive one. The resort staff was extremely friendly. They were always ready and willing to help with even the smallest detail. Franny, the events coordinator was a good as it gets. She made almost every request we had a reality. She helped brainstorm fun ideas, communicated regularly and promptly, always maintained a professional yet happy demeanor and was extremely fair through the entire process. The location of the resort cannot be beat. The cabins are beautifully decorated, comfortable and come with amazing views of the lake. The resort itself is centered around a beautiful pool, which served as a perfect meeting ground for all of our friends and family. The resort grounds are meticulously maintained with flowers everywhere. The day of the wedding was a truly a dream come true. Franny and the rest of the Chippewa Resort staff helped decorate the reception hall and ceremony area exactly the way I had imagined it. They provided all the necessary sound equipment for the ceremony, set up the chairs and helped make sure everything was set to go. The reception was in the resort's newly built restaurant, which is stunning. Our guests raved about the dinner, saying it was the best wedding food they had ever had, some said it was the best FOOD they had ever had.Putting all the pieces of the wedding puzzle together can be a lot of work, however I truly enjoyed the entire process working with the entire Chippewa Retreat Crew.Our weekend at Chippewa Retreat was absolutely a slice of wedding heaven!Sent on 08/18/2015
