    Paul and the staff at the Lodge did not disappoint. He followed through on everything he promised he would do. He was open with communication, we talked about expectations so when it was all said and done there was no surprises. The venue is beautiful and they cleaned the grounds the day before and made the place look great. Food stations were amazing, everyone complimented how tasty it was. No one was hungry after the meal.

    It was fantastic working with Paul and Holly. They made everything so easy and as near worry-free as wedding planning can be. Each time we visit Door County we will definitely be visiting!

    The Lodge of Leathem Smith did a fine job the day of our rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony & reception. The food was wonderful and the servers did a great job. The location was quite perfect for our celebrations and we enjoyed having our guests right onsite. The only thing that would have made the experience better would have been for the Lodge of Leathem Smith to have a designated Events Planner. They need somebody to handle all the arrangements, contracts, questions, confirmation of how the details will occur, executing the details on the day of so guests don’t have to be frantically getting everything done within 2 hours of the wedding, making sure billed amounts are accurate, etc. This would have helped with the hiccups we had along the way.
