From planning the wedding, customizing features, creating a unique wedding weekend experience for our guests, and relaxing at the same time...Meghan, Mike and Natalie at Convict Lake Resort did EVERYTHING!! I was shocked to find out that no request was too big. Everything that I wanted was executed perfectly. Meghan was excellent at keeping in contact with me over the 5 months that we planned the wedding. The follow-through and communication could not have been better (even with me me being about 5 hours away from the venue). I used Convict Lake Resort for me rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony, reception, and farewell breakfast the next morning. They took care of set-up and clean-up for all of my events and provided all of the catering. An extra bonus...my wedding guests got to stay in cabins! Having the majority of my 65 guests residing on-site for the weekend was truly special and made for memories that none of us will ever forget! My friends and family are still talking about my wedding and the outstanding customer service that THEY experienced with the staff at Convict Lake Resort was memorable for them as well.Sent on 02/23/2016

Amazing wedding weekend!
I can't say enough about Meghan and her team at Convict Lake! They really know how to pull off a flawless and beautiful mountain wedding. Before the wedding, Meghan was so organized and really helped us pick amazing vendors. All of our guests were raving about the wedding tent, dinner (esp. the macadamia-crusted mahi mahi), and the cocktail hour. We had the best wedding weekend--can't recommend Convict Lake enough!Sent on 11/17/2018

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!
What a beautiful location for a wedding! With a top-notch staff, they'll treat you to a gorgeous, private mountain wedding.
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!
