    The perfect Central Oregon Wedding Spot!

    I cannot say enough good things about Elk Lake. It was exactly what we wanted for a wedding location. The beauty is outstanding and allows you to focus on that, rather than all the other fluff and decor. We wanted a lake/mountain backdrop that would be the main "decorations" of our wedding, and keep everything else simple. The staff at Elk Lake is AMAZING! Cyndi (their event coordinator) is so on top of it and makes sure you get everything you need! The staff took care of everything leading up to the event and day of that I never worried once. The food was delicious and we received multiple compliments on it. We look forward to visit Elk Lake every year to celebrate our marriage and will always hold it close to our hearts.

    Ziegle Wedding

    The most beautiful place to get married. The staff went above and beyond to make my day perfect. My florist never showed up with my flowers and the Elk Lake staff pulled everything together last minute and I wouldn’t change a thing. All my guests and family loved the food! I will definitely recommend having a wedding here. Thank you so much for hosting the best day of my life!

    Absolutely amazing!!

    We had our wedding at Elk Lake beginning of summer 2018 and it was spectacular! Cyndi was so helpful and on top of it! Very quick with communication I loved it. The venue turned out to be even more breathtaking than imagined :) and the cabins were perfect! Our friends and family who stayed the weekend were thrilled with the accommodations. It was such a wonderful experience working with all of Elk Lake staff and I feel truly blessed to have had our big day there.
