    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!

    My wedding is on 10/21/18 and I cannot brag enough about the quality of service I have so far. Jessica has done an outstanding job in guiding us, giving us advice and accommodating our requests, yet staying with the hotel standards. I have nothing but praises. I will say more after the wedding. Blessings to all future brides&grooms looking for a venue

    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.
