    Cozy Cabin

    We found Xanadu on a complete chance. I was looking for a small intimate wedding. Then I just happen to stumble upon this place and it was literally perfect. The island is beautiful, the lake is amazing, there is just a feel here that I can’t explain. The cabins and house brought back memories from growing up with a lake cabin, which extends why this place made our weekend so special.
    Working with Nicole was incredibly easy to communicate with. She was quick with responses and concerns we had, and helpful in so many ways. We kinda just dove in and enjoyed our experience!
    I more than likely will go back and enjoy another weekend here with my husband

    Rustic & Elegant

    It was the perfect place for me and my husband to get married! Rustic enough to please him and elegant enough to satisfy me! Plus we got to enjoy the ability to have our immediate family and wedding party stay on the island with us the night before!

    The Most Unique Spot

    Every one of our guests arrived at Xanadu and said, "oh my god...how did you find this place?" It just feels special being there. Nicole worked with us with warmth and openness especially during Covid, as our plans were changing constantly, and ensured that we would have the best weekend possible. I can't imagine having had our wedding at any other venue. I'd recommend it for any couple looking for something unique, intimate, and incredibly personal for your wedding.
