Breathtaking!

This is the perfect venue! From weddings to business meetings to fine dining and parties, the Terrace does it all. I love it! The first time I had the opportunity to visit this amazing place was for my cousin's birthday party when I was a little girl. I was so impressed I remember thinking, if I ever get married I really hope it's here. Little did I know, when I turned 30 this past January, I would see that dream become a reality. My husband and I are so blessed and we couldn't have been happier with our wedding. I was born with Muscular Dystrophy and they were very accommodating. Since I have a very difficult time walking, we were able to call ahead of time to tell them what we wanted, and they brought our dinner right to us. We also got to stay in a newly renovated room with plenty of space for my scooter and a balcony at no charge. Enjoy the pool and relaxing hot tub to relieve all the stress from planning your big day. The ballroom is incredible with gorgeous drapery in the ceiling and a projector to display those special memories. We were able to use mirrors, vases, and a sign that they already have which helped us save. There is an outside area with a waterfall, gazebo, tables and chairs, and a stunning view of Lake Michigan for You even get to have your name on the marquee if you choose at no extra cost. The staff and everyone that works there is so friendly. My husband and I even had people tell us during our reception that it was the best wedding they've ever been to. Thank you so much for the most perfect day! For anyone struggling to find a unique venue your guests will love, look no further than the Terrace Bay Hotel, and enjoy your stay along the Bay:)

I had to plan my wedding from over 1,000miles away. The Terrace was absolutely wonderful to work with. They also where great working with my decorator, DJ and cake lady. My wedding was perfect and 100% stress free. The had managers on site at the reception to make sure all went well.
