Burgess, Cynthia · Getting married on 09/10/2020
My family had a wonderful experience! I have read over a few reviews talking about the owners being there, the different rules, etc. The owners are very transparent and upfront about their requirements before a contract is ever signed. There were no "surprises". Patty calls, texts or emails back either right away or within a decent amount of time. The cost of the venue, for what is included, is very competitive if not better than other venders we visited who didn't offer the amenities Carver Lake did. Thank you all for making our daughter's wedding day perfect and completely dreamy!! Highly, highly recommended!!Sent on 10/21/2019

As soon as we booked with Carver Lake for our wedding a month ago, we knew we made the right choice! The barn and all of the land is so gorgeous and made for beautiful pictures. Patty was an absolute joy to work with and was always more than willing to accommodate us and help out wherever she could. I would highly highly recommend Carver Lake to anyone that is working with a rather small budget but still wants a beautiful wedding!Sent on 11/13/2018
Carver Lake Venue's reply:Thank you Emily, we loved having yours and Nick's wedding here. You and your whole family were great to work with.

Michelle · Married on 09/29/2018
I have had the pleasure of working at the Carver Lake Venue as a Wedding Day Coordinator. My experience with Patty and Tommy have been great. They were very gracious in showing me around the property and listening to what the bride and groom wanted for their special day. This venue is beautiful and will sure meet the needs of any event held there. Patty was available and accommodating to my needs as a coordinator. I will definitely suggest Carver Lake Venue.Sent on 09/21/2017
Carver Lake Venue's reply:Thank you Michelle for the kind words. It was a pleasure working with you.

Daniel Grodem · Married on 05/18/2019
Patty was a joy the venue was beautiful but several guest mentioned how strange it was for her to sit outside the entire time and watch the wedding and eat our paid for food. Seemed a bit unprofessional. This is definitely not a place for more than 100 people. 130 were very crammed and tables do not seat 10 more like 8Sent on 05/19/2019
Carver Lake Venue's reply:Daniel thanks for the review. When we have a contract with the couple the guest are not aware of all the rules and regulations We inform the couple that as owners/managers of the venue we do stay on the premises. We offer golf cart shuttle so we do watch to see if anyone needs a ride. Couple is also informed that we require dinner because we are working through our dinner time. Table set up and space required has a lot to do with amount of people we can accommodate. I value reviews but when the person doing the review isn't a client they sometimes aren't well informed to make a proper review.

Not enough room for 200 people. No more than 100 for guest comfort. Unlevel ground not conducive for elderly, handicapped and children. Pretty setting.Sent on 10/27/2018
Carver Lake Venue's reply:Thank you for the phone call Amy. I appreciate you letting me know that you wanted to remove your review. Unfortunately I don't know how that can be done. I will contact my rep and see if she can help. They may need to get in touch with you to confirm.

Just a Few Items to Make Note of.....
Beautiful setting for those getting married. Especially earlier in the day and with a small to medium guest list. Definitely does not seat 200 people. We were able to fit (tightly) 130 guests.Sent on 10/23/2018
Be mindful of the hours in the contract- No Candles, No using nails/command strips won't hold...can use thumb tacks IF you can get them into the wood. No Alcohol after 9PM, No Music after 10PM and must be packed and vacated premises by 11PM. Which doesn't sound so bad unless you're having a 5PM wedding, the time goes back very quickly. And if you don't mind the owners being there and blowing out your candles 2.5-3 hours prior to end of the evening.
Great for day time weddings of 100 or less guests!
Carver Lake Venue's reply:Thank you Paula for your comments. As with all contracts it is important to read them. We state it is your responsibility to enforce the rules. When you don't it makes us the owners seem like we are over stepping. The wedding was beautiful but we have had many beautiful weddings that didn't violate the contract in as many ways has you did. All of which could have been avoided by reading the contract before planning. Thank you for making sure that our future couples know the importance of that.
