    Amazing Venue! Don't wait to book!

    We had our wedding at Lost River Cave this fall and it was absolutely perfect! We received so so many compliments from the guests on the natural beauty of the venue. About the most unique atmosphere you can find for a reception, that's for sure!

    Maegan made it an absolute breeze to book the spot, and was great about getting back to us with any questions we had. On the day of the wedding, her and the rest of the team at Lost River did everything they could to make our day run smoothly! The River Birch Room they have available was also the perfect place for the Bridal party to get ready/hang out and store their items during the ceremony/reception. This venue really has everything you could need.

    The only thing we could possibly complain about was date availability, since almost every Saturday in the fall was already booked 18 months out, but that just means you shouldn't wait to get in touch with them!

    Simply the best venue ever!

    The team at Lost River Cave, especially Maegan, were so incredible and helpful to work with (particularly during these crazy times of COVID19)!!

    I had stumbled across the cave online while looking for a venue and it caught my eye, it was so beautiful and unique. So we planned a tour, my husband and I fell in love with the cave as soon as we saw it. This was the place we wanted to get married, no doubt about it.

    From beginning to end Maegan was the absolute best to work with- from giving us a list of vendors in the area she recommended to keeping us up to date on the latest guidelines/guest limit/etc due to COVID. The entire team helped ensure the evening was a fun celebration while still remaining safe. I can't thank them enough for helping to make our dream wedding come to life!!!
