The Island on Lake Banoe is a new, one-of-a-kind, wedding and event venue on a secluded family farm just outside of Hot Springs, Arkansas. Be one of the first couples to experience your special day here.
The Island sits in the middle of picturesque Lake Banoe, surrounded by 20 beautifully landscaped acres and 100-year old trees, a perfect backdrop for breathtaking photos. Guests can mingle while enjoying the view of the water and Lake Banoe Fountain as it shoots water up to 100 feet in the air and creates a beautiful, peaceful ambience.
The Island and lake shore offer three unique event venues:
1) The Island is the perfect place for an elopement style wedding, where up to 10 people can be ferried 200-feet for an enchanting, intimate ceremony.
On the lake shore are two additional multi-purpose venues for larger weddings, receptions, rehearsal dinners or engagement parties: The Play Pen and the Pavillion.
2) The Play Pen offers a rustic outdoor barn-style backdrop with a beautiful view of Lake Banoe in the background. The Play Pen accommodates up to 60 wedding guests and up to 120 for a full sit-down dinner or reception (with social distance).
3) The Pavilion is a 36x50-foot open air setting with clear cloud-top roofing panels currently under construction (January 2021 completion). The Pavilion has the feel of an outdoor event and is away from the afternoon sun. This space accommodates up to 100 wedding guests and up to 50 for a full sit-down dinner or reception (with social distance). (An additional 50 guests can be socially distance seated indoors in the classic Wood Shop 200 feet away.)
The basement of the family farmhouse, currently being renovated, is the perfect location for the bride and her party to dress while the groom and his party can use The Wood Shop. After the event, guests can enjoy sipping cocktails at the charming Boat Dock Bar floating on Lake Banoe.
Spring 2021 is filling up fast! Hurry to schedule your visit and reserve your special date!

Team of The Island at Lake Banoe
I stumbled into providing a wedding venue after a friend asked to hold a wedding on my family's farm on the shore of our 10-acre man-made Lake Banoe. Not only did they love the setting, especially for the unique wedding photo options, but other wedding vendor professionals said the venue was so unique.
This was a perfect fit with my love of hosting large events and offering the very best personal attention. The farm has been in our family for nearly 100 years, and it gives me a lot of satisfaction to share it with couples who want a one-of-a-kind wedding experience.
