Magical Weekend at Camp

We were married in late September of 2023 at Timber Lake Camp and it was an unbelievable weekend. We walked away not just filled with so much love and joy, but feeling so eternally grateful that we chose Timber Lake Camp as our venue and had the pleasure of working with their amazing staff. We were initially drawn to the venue for its stunning beauty and because we wanted to maximize quality time, fun, and ease for our guests. The idea of having all of our guests stay together at one property was hard to find for a group of our size (180 people). We also loved the idea of bringing our guests' inner child out and forcing them to disconnect for a couple days from the outside world. Thank gosh we found Timber Lake Camp and decided to book it. The entire weekend from beginning to end completely surpassed our expectations, even with unanticipated rain that caused us to make several last minute adjustments and decisions. The process of planning with Meredith was seamless and stress-free. She was available to speak whenever we needed to and passed along all of our information so carefully to the team that would be present for the actual event. The entire staff on camp for the weekend including Scott, Liz, and Sheila were amazing. They worked so hard to make sure our wedding weekend went perfectly and were able to help make last minute adjustments to handle the rain. So many guests came up to us raving about the service they received as they described feeling like everything was completely taken care of. They also raved about the food, which is really quite delicious. Guests were also blown away by how "us" the wedding felt. This was probably the most special and unique part of Timber Lake Camp as they allowed us to craft our perfect weekend. We had a bbq and outdoor kickball-esque game with a campfire on Friday night followed by a full day of camp activities on Saturday including a pickleball and basketball tournament. Our ceremony occurred later in the evening followed by cocktails and a reception in the gorgeous dining hall and new pavilion. This may not be everyone, but the "do it yourself," laidback, and flexile feel of Timber Lake Camp really captivated us. I could not recommend Timber Lake Camp more highly. It was a magical, joyful, insanely special weekend that we will never forget!

So unique / amazing flexible staff!

Meredith and Scott are the reason you book here! So kind, so professional and responsive. The rest of the staff were equally as kind and flexible able to help you figure out how to pull off whatever you can imagine. My wedding required a karaoke set up and several food trucks in lieu of catering and they made it happen. The place is stunning, the activities are so fun, this was a truly unique and memorable experience for everyone. Hoping to have our anniversary here again in a few years!

Beautiful, Personalized Wedding Weekend in the Mountains

We got married at Timber Lake last September, and it was truly magical. The setting is gorgeous and it’s wonderful to have full reign of the camp. The staff was incredibly friendly and welcoming and always happy to help us with whatever we needed.

When we were first planning our wedding, we were first looking for a more traditional venue for a standard, one-day ceremony. We stumbled across Timber Lake Camp here on Wedding Wire, and we are so glad that we pivoted to planning a weekend affair. Choosing a venue like Timber Lake allowed us to create a multi-day event that was specific and meaningful to us and our guests. Having the full weekend meant we had time to have meaningful interactions with all of our guests, which is much more difficult during a one-day affair. Throughout the weekend, Timber Lake’s staff supported us from start to finish.

In the planning process, our coordinator, Meredith, was very accessible and we had multiple zoom meetings with her leading up to the wedding. She answered our long lists of questions diligently, and gave us all the information we needed to know.

Meredith worked with us to create exactly the weekend we wanted to create. There are several standard events they provide (the late night bonfire with smores was a hit with our guests!), but they are also open to any other activities you suggest. We had a cabaret night in their theater on Friday, a ballroom dance class the morning of the ceremony (so guests could learn a few moves!), and an arts and crafts table accessible all weekend long! They were happy to accommodate whatever activity we wanted.

Once we were there for the weekend, the staff was accessible and always looking to solve problems. The kitchen staff was incredibly generous in making sure that everyone was always happily fed. We felt well taken care of and always had someone to ask questions when they inevitably came up. Special shout out to Alice, who helped one of our groomspeople to decorate our arch with wildflowers picked on the campus!

We want to note that Timber Lake is not primarily a wedding venue, and it has all the advantages and disadvantages that entails. This allowed us to have the level of personalization and involvement that we wanted and that made our weekend so special. It also means the process is a little more hands-on for the couple and wedding party. We really enjoyed being part of setting up on the day before the guests arrived and having our wedding party there for an extra night to help, but we know that’s not for everyone. This may be less true depending on the caterers or wedding planner you hire, but we really loved that all parts of the weekend came from us and our loved ones. Also because the staff needed to deal with the camp, sometimes emails took a day or two to get a reply, but they were always answered thoroughly and within a reasonable amount of time.

We are so happy with our experience at Timber Lake camp and could not recommend it more highly to anyone interested in a personalized, full wedding weekend!
