All-Inclusive Destination Wedding Packages & Transparent Pricing

We take pride in the transparency of our pricing structure with absolutely no hidden fees. We are aware that many wedding venues are not up front with the overall cost, making it difficult for couples to determine if they can stay within their budget or not. We decided to change that industry standard and make all of our pricing easily available to anyone interested in our venue. Our transparent pricing structure makes it simple for potential wedding couples to determine, to the penny, what their wedding at The Nature Inn will cost by using this simple equation:

Package Cost + (Reception Menu Cost x # of Guests) = Total Cost to Nature Inn

All charges, including tax & gratuity, have been calculated and are included in our all-inclusive pricing structure for every wedding package that we offer. Likewise, our reception pricing is based on the menu selected, service style, and actual number of guests attending and is a straightforward, all-inclusive price per person. Please note that wedding receptions that exceed 90 guests, or choose to have tented reception seating, will require additional equipment rentals with corresponding charges. Your event planner will be glad to provide you with a personalized quote.

Guest Accommodations & Booking Commitment​

As a destination wedding venue, you and your guests will enjoy exclusive use of the entire lodge for your wedding gathering and celebration. By booking your wedding with us, you are committing that you and your guests will be booking all sixteen (16) of our overnight guest rooms for both nights of your destination wedding package.

Every destination wedding package that we offer includes a complimentary bridal suite for the wedding couple for both nights of their package. The wedding couples is responsible for assigning their guests to the remaining fifteen (15) guest rooms, which the guests will then book directly with the inn.​ A 10% lodging discount is provided for all wedding guests who stay at the inn.

    Our winter wedding weekend felt like a cozy celebration at home!

    Getting married at The Nature Inn was a dream come true for me! It's not only beautiful and comfortable, but the staff worked with us to create an environment that made the Inn feel like our home for the weekend. "Our house" was full of only our family and friends who sat here and there getting to know each other or catching up, the children played freely and safely, the furniture was set and reset seamlessly, and the food was always amazing! The staff had great suggestions for event planning, such as the movie and popcorn bar for the kids while the adults take boring pictures following the ceremony. We were able to decorate and make it our own, and all dietary needs were accommodated. If you're considering The Nature Inn then you probably love the great outdoors and care about sustainability: check and check! Our pictures down by the lake, up on the hill, and inside the Inn are gorgeous, and I even have an incredible shot of the stars that night under a New Moon! We are grateful to have 3 days to go for a walk and 2 nights to hang out at the fire pit with our wedding guests. Thank you Kashia and Cody for everything!

    Wonderful Perfect Wedding

    My (now!) husband and I booked The Nature Inn for our wedding in the beginning of June, and it was the best decision we made for our wedding! The venue is gorgeous and close to so many things that our guests did not want for anything. As part of the wedding package we got the entire Inn for the weekend during our wedding, and Kashia was so so helpful throughout the entire planning process and available to answer questions for anything and guide us through the process. Even with COVID-19 uncertainty, Kashia and the Inn worked with us throughout it all and we were able to make multiple plans leading up to the wedding. The actual wedding and weekend was absolutely beautiful, it was so easy and the instructions/timeline was great and easy to follow and kept my wedding party in line. The staff were incredibly helpful and attentive, ready for anything at a moment's notice, and really provided everything we could've wanted over the weekend - even passing out appetizers to us and the wedding party as we were taking pictures out back! The property is well maintained and gorgeous, and I couldn't imagine having a more perfect wedding. Using The Nature Inn made everything seamless and easy, so I didn't have to worry about almost anything as it was handled by staff or my party. The food all weekend, encompassing the rehearsal dinner, reception dinner, breakfasts and lunches, was phenomenal and so tasty, and accommodated guests that had dietary restrictions. Before the afternoon ceremony as I was getting ready, my guests were even able to explore the park and went on hikes, went kayaking, and visiting around the area to relax before the ceremony and reception. I am so grateful to have The Nature Inn as my wedding venue, and we will definitely be returning in the future for an anniversary or two!

    Most calming part of my wedding

    We got a few grumbles from guests about the middle-of-nowhereness of the location, but once they stepped out of their cars, they all admitted their mistake. It's a really calm, lovely place for a wedding with a wildly competent staff that was far better at anticipating our needs than we were. Kashia was delightful to work with, especially with the disaster that was 2021. She guided us through every step of the process and answered every question promptly, even addressing last minute requests. The website is very upfront and full of invaluable information, so you don't have to waste anyone's time. The location is beautiful. The food is very good. You will be well fed that weekend!
