    Incredible

    I had an intimate wedding at the Inn at Erlowest in the fall of 2021 and it was everything I could have hoped for. LeAnna and Laurie made the wedding planning process so smooth and easy from start to finish. It wouldn't have been the same experience without them! LeAnna worked with us to create the wedding we envisioned and everything went exactly as planned on our big day. I was so impressed by her and the entire Erlowest team - they are the best of the best! The food was delicious, the accommodations were wonderful, and the views are just breathtaking. If you're looking for a beautiful location on the water, look no further than the Erlowest!! We're already planning to return next year to celebrate our first anniversary!

    The Inn at Erlowest's reply:

    We so enjoyed working with you and Bill and helping to make your day perfect. We can't wait to see you again and to plan any future anniversary celebrations with us just as magical as your wedding day!
