Best decision ever!

We got married at Convict Lake in August and it was honestly the best experience we could've ever hoped for! Everyone tells you how stressful wedding planning is, but Meghan made the process fun and stress-free. She is so organized and on top of everything and every meeting she brought a sense of calmness which was much needed at times. Our wedding day went off without a hitch even with the biggest storm of the year right around the corner! Meghan and her staff were wonderful. She seriously thought of everything and made us the happiest bride and groom. We would 100% recommend getting married at Convict Lake. We rented the 2 big cabins and had our bridal parties stay there which was a blast, while lots of other family and friends rented cabins at the resort. It was priceless to have everyone at the resort for the weekend. We also rented a few pontoon boats for a day time party which was so so fun to be on the lake the day before the wedding. We wish we could relive that weekend again!

Meghan and Convict Lake Resort were 10/10

Let me start first by saying we felt our wedding day was perfect. It was everything we hoped for and we're grateful to Meghan, Convict Lake Resort and all of their staff for making it so. We were and are still so impressed at how well the day was managed from start-to-finish. Our timeline was executed on without any delays. Our guests were very well taken care of and the staff+service was all around exemplary. Food and drinks exceeded expectations as well. What impressed us most however was our experience working with Meghan. She is a total professional. We were put at ease by her ability to speak to every last detail no matter the question and she was always honest and transparent. Meghan earned our trust. Working with her you pick up rather quickly that she loves her job and that wasn't more apparent than on our wedding day. Our wedding would not have been the same without her and we thank her for all of her hard work.

Absolutely Perfect

Convict Lake was the perfect venue for our wedding. We could not have been more thrilled with the venue itself and the endless support from the amazing staff throughout the entire wedding planning process. We would recommend Convict Lake to anyone looking for a special place in the Eastern Sierra to tie the knot.

We LOVE working with the team at Convict Lake Resort, and are so grateful to have planned many events at this beautiful property. From the breathtaking lakeside ceremony locations, to the spectacular views of the mountains/sunsets through their clear tent structure, this property is an all around great venue for your special day! Not to mention they have cabins on-site to house your guests, and fun activities (i.e. horseback riding, fishing/boating, hiking, etc.), to keep your guests happy all weekend long. We look forward to working on many more great events together in the future. From, the Green Fox Events Team!

Convict Lake Resort is a world class wedding destination of the finest in it's class. The service team is excellent and well trained, very professional they almost always have a sommelier on staff. The wedding planning team of Mike and Meghan are always on point. Weddings at this location are always executed flawlessly in time. The magic is in the details they are very meticulous and organized. Convict Lake is so smooth your guests will be impressed by the flow! The food is delicious, you could argue it the finest in all the Sierra! You can always taste the craftsmanship. From the homemade salad dressings the vinaigrette is off the hook! There is a New York that is roasted Prime Rib style that reinvents the game! My personal favorite is the Mahi Mahi with Jalapeño Cilantro. Chef Oscar and this crew are very talented. Yea the service and view combined with the value make this place all time. The view from the ceremony sites speaks for itself. Take the hike around the lake and let the mountains and the majesty speak to you. You will thank me! (about 45 minutes easy terrain and no elevation gain. Bring water, wear sunscreen, appropriate footwear) I recommend Convict Lake on every level. This place is fantastic!
