About Lakeside Hall at Fort Ritchie

Rustic with all the modern amenities.

Built in 1928, Lakeside Hall at Fort Ritchie was the Officer's Club for the Army base before being shut down.  Lakeside Hall at Fort Ritchie has a floor to ceiling stone fireplace, wood floors and wooden walls and the main hall has high ceilings.  There is a separate bar space where the cocktail hour is held.  Most couples choose to have the ceremony on the deck with Lake Royer in the background.  However, some couples are creative in choosing the pier, grassy area under the trees or the castle to hold the ceremony.  After getting in at 8 AM to set up you can get ready in the bridal and groom suite.  You have the hall until midnight.  Choose from 7 different caterers to fit your budget and taste.

We had our ceremony on the deck and the reception inside. It was a beautiful venue and the people there were great! They even had separate rooms to get ready in and that was great! I highly recommend this to anyone looking to have their whole wedding in one place!

Lakeside Hall was the perfect venue. We had an evening reception there. Our guests all commented on how beautiful the location and the hall were. We had about 140 guests and it was comfortable. The price was extremely reasonable and Kelly was very friendly and helpful throughout the process with ideas for decorating and set up. We were able to set up the day prior and we had the hall booked the entire day of, which is a plus compared to some venues that book more than one wedding per day. I am so, so happy that we found Lakeside Hall!

We had a very unique idea in mind for our wedding and lakeside hall was the perfect location. It's was only 15 minutes for all my family and guest to stay in cobblestone hotel making transportation super easy. Kelly our coordinator was always promptly responsive and helpful. We felt like we had no concerns because Kelly made details such and do and don'ts, time frames, where to get help with rental insurance etc very simple. It was literally the smoothest wedding I have ever been too. I was able to your take pictures prior to setting up my very specific themed decorations to make sure they worked. Kelly was also very considerate and understanding with payment. I truly felt like we got what we paid for. I would recommend to ANYONE!! You won't regret it!!
