The building was then sold to the current owners, who renovated the interior into its current form as a lakefront resort.

We could not have chosen a more perfect venue. I could go on and on about how beautiful the Inn is but what really makes this place stand apart is the staff. Starting with Alexis and the rest of the events team - she really makes the bride and groom feel special. The Inn does multiple weddings most weekends of the summer so having a coordinator that makes you feel like an individual is so important. She was so helpful - coordinating with our other vendors, helping us plan the day, meeting with us through out different stages of the process, and checking in not he day of from the moment my bridal party and I arrived on sight, to bustling my dress at the reception, and checking in at different times of the night.

It's also the little things that the Inn thinks of that really put it over the top for my husband and I. They made the night so personalized with lots of options for table cloths and room set up that were included in the price. We wanted some add ons and the Inn helped find vendors for those as well. They even gave my husband and I a plate of cocktail hour appetizers we didn't get a chance to try during dinner. When we arrived at our complementary wedding suite at the end of the night we found plates with bites of all the food from the night and a piece of wedding cake for us to enjoy (understanding it's hard to get a chance to eat during the day of).

We had the time of our lives. Our guests LOVED the evening and couldn't stop raving about the services. It was perfect. Thank you team!

Stop what you're doing right now and book the Inn at Erlowest as your wedding venue. I cannot even put into words how PERFECT, amazing and truly magical my wedding day was because of the Erlowest. Julianna and Alexis are AMAZING and helped me throughout my entire wedding planning process. I specifically emailed Julianna back and forth every week for over a year and a half before my wedding. Julianna and I had hundreds of emails back and forth to each other. She answered every single one of my questions and always had the answer for me, she is amazing. She is such a sweet, down to earth person and beyond organized and answers emails so quickly; she is a gem and made my entire wedding planning process stress free. Julianna and Alexis helped out so much the day of my wedding, always smiling and calm which helped calmed my nerves knowing I was in good hands. My guests will not stop raving about how spectacular our wedding was. I cannot even count how many of our friends and family said that our wedding was the best wedding they have ever been to (and we are from New Jersey, where we go over the top with weddings). The food was beyond spectacular. Everything we ate was phenomenal and the chef blew it out of the water and nothing like any wedding food I have ever had. We had guests telling us it was the best food at a wedding they have ever had. My wedding was beyond beautiful and absolutely perfect and not one little thing went wrong, all thanks to the Erlowest staff. Juliana, Alexis, Laurie, Jo were all such a joy to work with and be around all weekend, always smiling and accommodating to all of my guest and I's needs. Besides the staff being absolutely magnificent, the location of the Erlowest is everything and more. I was married right on the water and boy was it a dream location. My wedding pictures are breathtaking and I will recommend this venue to every single bride I
