The rehearsal dinner we hosted for our son's wedding was everything we could have wanted. Working with Katelyn Arnold, the sales and catering manager, was a delightful and pleasant experience. Her attention to detail, friendliness and total competence made working with her an absolute pleasure! All of the plans were carried out to perfection and the evening flowed seamlessly. The food was outstanding and the view from the Captain's Room, overlooking the lake was magic. We were blessed with good weather and were able to enjoy cocktails and hors d'oeuvres on the patio. Thanks to Katelyn and the Harbor House staff for a memorable evening!

The setting, food, drinks and service were awesome and ensured a fantastic start to the wedding weekend. Danielle was very proactive and notified us a week in advance that we may have some logistic issues relating to our access of the venue. This was a result of circumstances beyond Harbor House's control. This allowed us to make appropriate arrangements to ensure all of our guests were able to make it to the venue.
