    Amazing!!!

    Wow wow wow! We could not have picked a better venue to have our wedding at. The view is breathtaking and the staff are wonderful. I unfortunately ended up being a covid bride, but The Overlook did a great job helping me plan and replan everything. They were always prompt and polite when answering e-mails or phone calls and were patient with all the questions I had. The food was incredible and they were able to give us options everyone could enjoy. I would pick them a hundred times over and can’t wait to have my larger reception with them next year.

    Beautiful choice for our wedding reception

    We chose The Overlook for our wedding reception after visiting only one other place. It was exactly what we were looking for to host our winter wedding. It is such a beautiful spot with the lake in the back. The building itself is such a classic and cozy place to have a reception. The windows in the back provided a stunning view of the lake at sunset, and the fireplaces added such a special touch to the reception. Chef Zhou introduced himself on our first visit and was very involved and attentive through the whole planning process. Mariah was our coordinator and she was so helpful and pleasant to work with. We had a few special requests, and they were so flexible and eager to ensure we got what we wanted. The food was so delicious, we had so many wonderful choices and received many compliments. The day went off without a hitch due to their organization and attentiveness. We couldn’t have asked for a nicer day or experience in planning for it. Thank you to the whole Overlook staff for making our day as perfect as it could be!
