The team at Lake O’ The Woods was phenomenal! They were so helpful from the moment we started planning the wedding to the moment we left after the wedding! The grounds were beautiful and we loved the freedom to relax where we wanted to, by the pool, the fire and on their beautiful porches. The views from our rooms were also gorgeous to wake up to! Trish and Dawn were wonderful to work with and we highly recommend them for an occasion!

Trish is an amazing cook! She is very prompt, kind and accommodating. We could not have asked for a better 3 days for our wedding. The grounds are wonderful and every one of our guests loved it as much as we did.

Trish Peters, her amazing staff, and the beautiful setting made for the perfect wedding. We were able to relax and enjoy the weekend, knowing all the details were in place. Trish was very accommodating and her professionalism was evident throughout.

Lake O' The Woods is absolutely breath taking! We could not have found a better location for our son's rehearsal dinner and guest to stay. Trish is an amazing, very talented lady. We were clueless on how to put such a special event together, so we were very pleased that Trish could do it all and she did! We can not explain how beautiful everything turned out, the grounds and history there in itself is outstanding.

Trish is absolutely amazing! She was extremely flexible and allowed me to see the venue on days when I was in town. Planning a wedding from a different state was challenging; however, Trish made it all a little smoother. The venue itself is beautiful and I couldn’t have asked for a better package. The entire weekend package is the way to go. Great job Trish and all of the staff at Lake O’ the Woods Plantation

We held our wedding at Lake O' the Woods in May of 2017 and Trish and the staff were nothing short of amazing. The house and grounds are meticulously maintained, and Trish makes sure that every little detail is taken care of. We had out of town guests stay in the main house while we spent our wedding night in Henry's Cabin, there was plenty of room to accommodate everyone and our guests loved the ability to walk the grounds and take in the old Southern charm of the plantation.

If you are looking for an "elegant and exquisite" venue for your wedding or special event, you "MUST" see/select Lake O' The Woods . We just had our daughter's wedding at this "BEAUTIFUL" location! The wedding pictures were just "stunning" because every area of this property is "extremely" beautiful! Our guest were in "awe" when they arrived and left "raving" on the venue, not to mention on how the staff were just so attentive to their every need.
This was an "all inclusive" wedding, which left my daughter and I "stress free"! "Hands down" this is the way to go!!!
We will use this location again for every special future events.

It didnt take long for us to realize that Lake O the Woods was going to be our venue! At first glance, we fell in love with the beautiful grounds of the plantation. Trish was so accommodating, responsive, helpful, and overall amazing with helping us perfect out wedding day! We got married on the front steps and had the reception on the back terrace overlooking the gorgeous pool and pastures. I cannot tell you how happy I was with everything about Lake O the Woods!

EVERYTHING about The Stogner wedding was perfect! Trish and staff went above and beyond for the guest. The entire weekend was magical. Even the mother of the bride said it was the most stress free wedding. Thank you for taking such good care of us.
Dorothy · Married on 10/20/2013
Trish was absolutely wonderful and very accommodating. We had a wonderful time taking our engagement photos on the beautiful grounds. It was so fun to get up close and personal with the Belties and horses, and to take advantage of the lovely, colorful fall weather. Lake O' The Woods is so whimsical and quaint, offering a gorgeous, classy, yet rustic, site for a wedding ceremony and reception.

If you are looking for a stunning outdoor venue in a rural setting, this is it!! As a planner the one thing I have learned is setting isn't everything, staff is. Trish, Dawn and staff cannot be beat. Their staff stepped in and up, even when it was not their job to do so. What else could you ask for. The bride and family never knew of any of the little "hiccups" (from other vendors) that happened throughout the weekend. A great value. My advise, pick one of their many plans, step back and enjoy your wedding day without one worry.

This venue was absolutely beautiful! All of my guests were highly impressed and everyone complimented how beautiful the plantation was.
Sarah · Married on 05/04/2013
We had the best wedding thanks to lake o the woods staff! My family and friends had nothing but great things to say about how beautiful our venue was.

Lake O' The Woods (LOW) Plantation made our wedding dreams come true! Thanks to their expertise/talent, professionalism, quality of service, and responsiveness, the wedding planning process went very smoothly and kept me (the bride) and our families as stress free as possible for this type of major life event! They listened to our wants and our needs then took the reigns and produced a masterful and absolutely wonderful ceremony & reception at their beautiful outdoor venue! We (the Bride & the Groom) even spent our wedding night on the plantation!! LOW offers the whole package and can be as hands on and involved in the planning and executing process as the Bride & Groom desire! I would not only strongly recommend LOW as a Wedding Venue, but also for their immaculate Wedding Planning Services-- both provided at a great value!! If I had to do it all over again, I would not change a thing, as it was truly a wonderful wedding experience start to finish!

I just want to provide a look at the historical context of Lake O the Woods. It is one of the few historic sites that until recently was a living and hospital home. It radiates with tales and love that the family that lived here from its building to recently when the generations could not provide for its future. Some of the family that grew up here still lives close by. Their church, Shady Grove Baptist, is not far away, and in fact, Trisch and husband have contributed to its upkeep. This is a neighborhood made up of the Davis and Egerton families and relatives. My childhood featured the annual family reunion in the front yard where my grandmother, Virginia Egerton, played. Lake o' the Woods was featured on the Woodright PBS TV series with the woodright Roy Egerton interviewing my aunt Eleanor while she shelled beans and talked about its history. The outbuildings are authentic and look like I remembered them. You will sense the hospitality seeping out from its bones. I still love this place. -Joanna Risdon Hanes-Lahr, Atlanta

My dream venue! I was looking for a place where we could have our rehearsal dinner, ceremony and reception all in one overnight location. I was so happy to find LOW in Warrenton. This lovely home has it all... character, a view, space and a wonderful team to put it all together. Once we arrived on Friday, I knew myself and the friends and family that were staying on site, were going to be taken great care of. I did not have to worry about anything and that truly helped me be a stress free bride!! Between the master suite to get ready in, the cabins where the groomsman relaxed, breakfast in the main manor house and hanging out around the pool, LOW has so much to offer. We were able to easily provide transportation to Henderson for those out of town guests, which was one of my concerns with picking this venue. It really worked out great. Thanks Trish and team for helping us plan our dream wedding!

We recently held our wedding at the Lake O the Woods Plantation. There are many components to an amazing wedding, and this venue has all of those elements. The first thing that attracted us to choose the venue for our wedding is the amazing grounds and various properties. The manor house is absolutely gorgeous, tastefully renovated to modernize the space while retaining the old southern charm. Another advantage of the venue is the amount of bedrooms (we had all of our bridal party and immediate family members stay with us the entire weekend, around 30 individuals). Trish, the venue owner, truly made us comfortable throughout our stay and made us feel as if her venue was our home. Brides will be hard pressed to find another venue that can provide such an intimate space for such a great price.
Last, but certainly not least, the staff at the Lake O the Woods are AMAZING. Trish, Dawn, and her team were so helpful during the entire weekend. We held multiple events over the few days and the staff handled every detail with such precision and care. And this is what you want --- someone who views your wedding as a celebration, and not a profitable event. Trish's staff cares. They care that your day is flawless, that everything is set up to your approval, and they care that you have an amazing time. Trish can be opinionated at times, but at the end of the day, she and her staff are there to make your event awesome.
Reading through past comments, I would like to echo the positive sentiments of the other reviewers. As for the one comment regarding the dog interfering with the ceremony, Trish's dogs were all very well behaved and NEVER interrupted any of the events throughout the weekend. I can only imagine that Trish has coordinated and held many wedding events since that first review, and her expertise and professionalism that I experienced during my wedding reflects her excellent wedding planning abilities.

My wedding was perfect!! Family members are still talking about how nice it was.
Jill · Married on 10/20/2007
We had our ups and downs with the site but all in all it was a beautiful wedding that was unforgettable. The place is 80 acres of pure beauty. Exactly the setting I was looking for in an outdoor wedding site. My wedding was one of the first weddings to be done at the location so of course there were the things that had to be filtered out and corrected and such for being one of the first. We had an excellent time once the paperwork was finally out of the way and things were completed correctly and on track. The day before the wedding was good, a few misunderstandings that had to be fixed the night before but nothing to ruin the wedding day. The day of the wedding was good besides their dog running around right before I was to walk the aisle, but it was fixed in a timely manner. The place is beautiful and it was excellent to have my entire wedding party and immediate family stay the night at the plantation house the night before and after the wedding. We had our own honeymoon cabin for after the wedding while everyone else stayed in various rooms throughout the location. If you can stand having a few "bumps" with service and can look past that as we did because the location was excellent to have the outdoor wedding of your dreams I would recommend this place. If you can not deal with people and miscommunications or dogs getting in the way, I would not recommend the place. It is a toss up with recommendations. The service could have been tons better. There were a few things that I did not like but it did not ruin my special day. I loved the outdoor setting and feel. The owners were responsive, sometimes good and sometimes bad. But if you can look past that, wonderful place. It's hard to judge on the professionalism because we were the first ones to sign and second to have a wedding there so there were tons of things to work out with the contract and all, which I think by now they have things set straight. We kind of helped with getting them on the right track with contracts and vendors and little things that needed to be helped with starting a place like that. I mean they had things but it needed to be worked on which in the end things went well. The value for the place was excellent. The price you pay for the beauty and having all those people stay with you was great. Couldn't ask for a better price when compared to the other locations that provided a similar atmosphere. This place and setting far passes those atmospheres, nothing can compare. You have to see it with your own eyes the website does not do it justice!
