    Incredible!!!

    From the moment we stepped foot on the venue and met with the coordinator to inquire on what they had to offer for weddings...to the moment it was time to clean up when the reception was over....has been magical. Jessica, who runs the wedding cordination at Lakeside has been an absolute Angel! Whenever we had a question and/or something was not going quite right she was always very responsive and helpful. She was a huge part of making our day memorable and beautiful!!!

    In love with Lakeside Inn

    Jessica, the wedding director, was great to work with. I have absolutely no complaints in dealing with Jessica. Everything I asked for she tried her best to make possible.
    Due to budget reasons I offered a lunch reception. We served our guests, the salmon, chicken and pasta. I personally went around to check in with all my guests, and everyone loved the food! So many people came up to me to mention how yummy the salmon dish was.
    I definitely recommend Lakeside Inn as an option for your wedding!

This is such a picture perfect place! I have had the pleasure of doing a few shoots here and you couldn't ask for a better view. A seaplane was docked and it made for some really memorable images for the couple.
