Stunning location with everything you could want and need for the perfect day
My husband and I had a change in plans and ended up eloping this year but we had planned our wedding here for next August 17th, 2019 (BONUS, that date is now available)! We would have loved to spend more time exploring the HideOut and enjoying all that the venue has to offer. This place is incredible!
All of our conversations with BJ and the team up at the HideOut were timely and professional. We toured the venue last summer and quickly realized that the HideOut is absolutely gorgeous. The owners really have thought of everything you could want and need for your wedding weekend. Every wedding planner and vendor we spoke with had high reviews of this place. If you love the great outdoors, the HideOut is the perfect venue for you.

What an epic wedding location!!!!
Our friends and family continually tell us we had THE BEST wedding and we have so much to thank The Hideout for that. What a magical location! We had 4 amazing days with friends and family. We asked everyone to do their best to arrive early on Friday and really enjoy this spectacular spot with us and by Saturday afternoon it really felt like everyone had "dropped in" and fully arrived to the magical weekend we'd created. The food and lodging options were our biggest issue for guests. We ended up doing a big Costco fun and supplying a breakfast and lunch bar everyday (just bagels and build-your-own sandwich stations). We so wish we could have accomodated more people on the property too. My feedback to The Hideout is to find ways to allow more people to camp there! I think 90% of our guests would have loved that option. But other than those hurdles, we found the venue and the staff so accommodating. My husband wanted us to have a very fun first dance and had this idea he would swing in from the rafters (yes, he's very silly and fun) and they were happy to help and even mounted the support structure he needed in the rafters for us! You can imagine it was a surprising and fun moment in our reception! We can't say enough great things about this place. Be sure to get all your guests out there swimming and hiking and exploring the property for your whole stay. Our Sunday after the ceremony was perhaps the most special for many as everyone just unwound in a lazy day at the lake using the Lodge House as the base. We bbq'd and had speakers on the deck and everyone spent the whole day sunning and swimming and having the best summer day.

The Hideout is exactly what the name implies...it is hidden, secluded, and beautiful. We absolutely love the fact that our wedding couples choose this venue. The cabins, the lake, the hiking trails....so romantic. We have delivered our rental products there quite often this year and our drivers fight over who will go because it is such a beautiful drive. As a matter of fact, one of the drivers videoed his drive to bring back to everyone else because it was so breath-taking!
