    Looking for a Wedding Venue? Look NO Further!

    We chose The Lucerne Inn for our daughter’s wedding venue... we had the rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, wedding, reception, and a breakfast the next day all at The Lucerne Inn. The entire experience was superb!! I had heard from a number of locals how marvelous the food was...and it was absolutely delicious!! The selections available for the meals, including appetizers after the wedding while family was taking pictures, was superb! And we hired Chelsey as the Wedding Coordinator and she made the entire experience perfect. We seriously cannot think of one thing that would have made the weekend better. Thank you, Lucerne Inn!!

    The Lucerne Inn's reply:

    Thank you so much for those kind words--Our whole experience with you - your family and friends was wonderful.

    We wish nothing but the best to Arla and Kevin

    Our Dream Venue

    We were looking for a venue to hold our winter fairytale wedding and when we stumbled across the Lucerne, we knew it was absolutely perfect! We booked it without even taking a tour, it came so highly recommended by friends and family who had stayed there previously. Chelsey the event coordinator was amazing, the owners were so kind, the food was wonderful, and you can tell they really want to make weddings special.
