    Wonderful Fall wedding

    The perfect wedding weekend! It couldn’t have turned out any better! The venue and grounds were beautiful. The accommodations were perfect for our whole family. Pam and her husband Mike really made us feel like the place was ours for the weekend. Everyone in attendance can’t stop talking about how perfect it was!

    Wonderful wedding at the Nest

    Mike and Pam were so hospitable, kind, easy to work with and worked so hard to make our daughter's wedding wonderful -- even in COVID times. The venue is awesome, very casual but stunningly beautiful. People had lots of room to spread out and enjoy the lovely setting. Our dinner in gathering room was lovely, and the cocktail hour and dancing in the pavilion area were great. The outdoor ceremony on the banks for the Swan River, with an arch made by Mike from Flathead Lake driftwood couldn't have been any nice. The accommodations in the and the Inn were also super. It turned out to be a perfect spot for a perfect day. Thank you to the Nest!
