Beautiful venue with caring, helpful staff. We were happy to use silver birches for our rehearsal and the cottages, too. The food was delicious, bar tenders were fun, and the price seemed too good to be true!

Incredible full-service venue!!

The Waterfront at Silver Birches (and by extension all of Settlers Hospitality Group) was the perfect choice for our wedding weekend! Chiara is INCREDIBLE- she was always available to answer our many questions (especially through the ever-changing regulations of a post-Covid world), and helped us customize every detail of our wedding. She was also there overseeing every detail on our wedding day with such enthusiasm (and we were her third wedding of the weekend)- I could not have made it through the planning without her! We had our welcome party the night prior at one of the sister properties, which was relaxed and low- key with amazing food, and continued the party through the day after with an incredible post-wedding brunch. Our guests loved being able to stay on site throughout the weekend to take advantage of the lakefront views, water sports, and live music on the patio. The food at our wedding was probably the highlight of the night- our guests were still talking about it WEEKS later! We were able to work with Chiara and the chefs and bakers to customize our menu, and it turned out even better than we could have anticipated! We've already returned for a long weekend, and can't wait to plan another event there!

It was everything I had hoped for

I cannot say how truly thankful I am for Chiara at Silver Birches. She was so wonderful in tailoring and organizing my wedding. She was so lovely to work with and I had one of the best days of my life because of all her help. Silver Birches provided a list of all preferred vendors that we chose from and we were not disappointed. The guests loved the buffet food we had and the environment of the lodging area. We also had a bonfire after the wedding that they helped organize which was a lovely after party. Overall we could not have been happier with everything!

Ehrhards's will simply take your breath away! I was blessed to be able to perform a wedding ceremony there last season and I have a few more scheduled in this and next season and am really looking forward to it. The meal was one of the best I've ever had at a reception and being in the weddings business for almost twenty years that is saying a lot! their facility is beautiful inside and out and every last detail has been seen to. The view over the lake is perfect and the reception room maximizes that view. They are kind to vendors, too. (I wish I could say that about all venues) I give them five stars!
