Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Lakeside ceremonies surrounded by the verdant gardens are a gorgeous way to begin your life together. The floating pier is a perfect spot for photographs!
  • A grand stone fireplace and timber-frame ceiling in the Ballroom make for a warm and inviting atmosphere. The adjacent terrace lets you step outside and enjoy the view of the mountains.
  • Newly renovated guest rooms, including four junior suites, provide luxurious accommodations. A nightly bonfire with s’mores and a full-service marina will keep everyone in your party entertained.
