Facilities and Capacity
Hawk Lake Venue features an uncovered outdoor event space, with a panoramic view, that can accommodate up to 300 guests comfortably. For the couples with smaller wedding crowds, the team can serve guest lists as small as 25. A white gazebo sits next to the lake and dock so couples can say their vows in front of 200 feet of crystal-clear water. Adjacent to the lake is the property’s tree garden that offers guests a shaded area to relax away from the heat. Get-ready suites, found on the property across from a beautiful waterfall, allow wedding parties to prepare for the big day. The waterfall is a great choice for photo opportunities and first-look moments. In case the weather doesn’t permit for celebrations on the grass, a 90-foot cemented section can accommodate a dance floor. This venue is wheelchair accessible and offers on-site parking, so your friends and family can enjoy the best moments with you with ease.
Hawk Lake Venue happily hosts wedding ceremonies, receptions, and elopements; the team also helps couples celebrate engagement parties, wedding showers, and rehearsal dinners. Chairs, tables, lighting and a wedding arch are available to make the setup a bit easier. This open, outdoor setting is pet-friendly, so your furry friends can come celebrate your union with you.
Hawk Lake features a fully furnished three-bedroom suite, so that couples can get the most out of this breathtaking venue. This suite can also be used by out-of-town guests or by the wedding party while getting ready. The accommodation is completely private and is featured in some of the wedding package options.

The perfect spot for a whimsical outdoor wedding!
This property is absolutely breathtaking! There are multiple places to have your ceremony/reception which makes dreaming up something unique so easy to do. We decided to have ours in the meadow area and it was exactly what we were looking for and we couldn't be more happy that it just so happened to work out. We had planned a big wedding and then covid happened... our original venue narrowed guest count to 15 people due to county regulations. So we started to look outside the county where there were less strict regulations. We wanted a big space where people could practice social distancing and this place is huge, secluded, and beautiful! Guest were allowed to spread out and move about the property and feel safe doing so. We got such good photos at the property as there are many locations to choose from; a waterfall, lake, meadow woods, open lawn. We had a friend get married the day before us and her wedding looked completely different than our even though we shared some rentals and had the same venue. If you are looking for an affordable place that you can truly customize to your liking, look no further than Hawk Lake Venue. I could go on and on about how much I adore the owner, Allie. We had to replan our wedding weeks before our big day and she went out of her way to show us the property several times so we could plan and helped us make sure our dream string lighting could happen. She made sure that everything would run smoothly and the transition from a wedding the night before to our wedding was seamless. Allie was professional, caring, passionate and humble which was so refreshing. If I were to redo my wedding - I'd choose Hawk Lake over my original venue that was three time the price. YOU MUST CHECK THIS PLACE OUT IF YOU ARE PLANNING A WEDDING!!!Sent on 01/21/2021

I was the destination florist for TWO weddings / one weekend
Hawk Lake Venue is a beautiful destination nestled in the heart of Oregon wine country.
Allie is the Owner/ vendor and a huge help to all involved. We had over 150 guests (x two weddings) in the midst of a pandemic and NO ONE GOT SICK ( it’s been over 3 months ago now)
Can’t say enough about this hidden gem BOOK NOW!!!Sent on 10/12/2020
