History
The Estate was founded in the late 1800s and originally named for the five mighty trees on the front lawn. Five Oaks soon boasted a barn, carriage house, boathouse, and formal gardens. The two interior fireplaces were created with stones from around the world. The estate was operating as a dining establishment when purchased in 1961 and was sold after the second owner鈥檚 passing in 2003. Under its new ownership, it gained popularity as a wedding and events venue on Lake Chippewa's shores.

    The best place to have a wedding!

    There is so much I can say about how perfect this venue was. Leigha and Liz were absolutely angels on my wedding day and the whole two years leading up to it. They are so attentive and answered all our questions, they were on top of everything during the wedding and did not miss a beat! They also let us reschedule the wedding two times due to covid and we鈥檙e so understanding. The venue itself is stunning and you can tell they put so much work into it. They even added a patio roof right before the wedding, so we were able to have it outside even though it rained!! We are so happy we got married here, I would do it again in a heartbeat.

    The Oaks Lakeside's reply:

    Thank you so very much for your review, Stephanie! It was a long two years, but the end result was well worth it. It was an absolute pleasure working with you and Dan to help make your day as special as it could be, and I sincerely hope you'll drop in from time to time to have some dinner with us.

    We wish you all the best! - The Oaks Events Team

    Excellent Venue

    The most beautiful place ever, very clean and the food was excellent. Can't say enough about The Oaks. Liz was awesome in helping plan our wedding. Everything went very smooth, weather was perfect. The grounds were absolutely beautiful and could not have chosen a better place to have our wedding. Very highly recommended.

    Phenomenal

    Guys! I could not have asked for a more beautiful or smooth wedding day! We almost didn鈥檛 visit because of the small occupancy number listed on The Knot but they can accommodate much more than 150. They鈥檝e recently renovated their event/reception side of the venue and it is absolutely stunning! I鈥檇 you're looking for a sophisticated yet comfortable venue, this is the place. I鈥檇 describe it as clean, fresh, and simplistic. They have just the right amount of decorations within the hall including greenery and strings of lights. I was going for a garden party theme so it was perfect but you can really make it what you want.

    The ceremony site is SO pretty. You can get married right off the lake and the sun sets right behind the ceremony gazebo. We honestly almost didn鈥檛 contact them because the venue looked so expensive online but it is so affordable. The grounds are perfect for pictures of you, your wedding party, and family. Lots of pretty options.

    We did a cocktail hour after the ceremony and it was so fun. We had the pleasure of attending a friend鈥檚 wedding at the same location a month before ours and theirs was just as fun with a more classic twist. Both were lovely!

    The dinner was literally to die for! We did the Gorgonzola chicken, herb crushed medallions, and salmon and I would sell my right hand to eat it again (I鈥檓 right handed). ;)

    From the get-go, the coordinator there, Kristi rocked it. She was able to answer all our questions on the first visit and throughout the planning process was so accommodating and wonderful! She took care of coordinating vendors day of and stopped in frequently to make sure we had everything we needed. We got ready on premisses in their beautifully new bride鈥檚 room and it was so much fun.

    If you鈥檙e in the area and choose another venue you are not thinking clearing, visit The Oaks. This is the place to get married and celebrate!

    The Oaks Lakeside's reply:

    Wow! What a fabulously detailed review, Dee! Thank you so much for the compliments! 鈽猴笍 It was our pleasure to host your gorgeous garden wedding!
