Perfect wedding location
The Lake House was the perfect setting for our August wedding. We had our ceremony on the lawn, cocktail hour on the patio, and dinner and dancing inside. The location is gorgeous, versatile, and reasonably priced. Jean was an incredible resource for us throughout the process - she suggested vendors, answered all of our questions promptly, and ensured that the space was ready for us when we needed it. We visited the venue a few times during the planning process, and Jean was accommodating about letting us in to see the house. The Lake House also has the advantage of allowing clients to bring in all of their own vendors - for us, that meant that we could put together an ideal team for our wedding.Sent on 08/22/2019

Wonderful rehearsal dinner
We held our (large, 80 person) rehearsal dinner at the lake house and had a beautiful event. It didn't hurt that the weather was perfect. The lawn and patio were great for games, the front porch was great for sipping and snacking, and there was plenty of room inside for food and tables. It felt intimate without being crowded, and pretty without being fussy.Sent on 07/12/2019
