    My Nieces wedding was breathtaking!

    Attended a wedding in the fall for my niece and the whole event was just stunning. The lake view ceremony was so romantic and lovely. Such beautiful scenery at the. lake. The lodge was a really unique rustic/industrial building. The decor and vibe had a very elegant feel and everyone really enjoyed the evening. I watched my niece get ready for her day and the room they had for the girls was absolutely perfect. It was an extremely fun wedding and my niece was able to relax and really savor her wedding day thanks to the entire staff at Sugar Lake Lodge!

    This truly was my dream wedding!

    My husband and I got married here on December 11, 2021 and couldn't be happier. We fell in love with Sugar Lake Lodge the moment we saw it online, and confirmed it with an in person tour. It is absolutely GORGEOUS! And even better than the looks was the staff. Steve and Nadine were just the best people to work with. They truly made our dreams come true without adding a whole lot of work or stress on our parts. They are professional, sweet as can be, generous, and very accommodating. If I could go back and do it all over again, I wouldn't change a thing. If you go with Sugar Lake Lodge for your special day, you won't be disappointed.
