Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • It's a charming nautical-style venue with an enviable river's-edge setting. The beautiful views of the Illinois River offer tranquil tableaus, while Peoria's dynamic skyline—all lit up at night—makes an exciting backdrop for your affair.
  • Enjoy a ceremony on the wooden deck that juts over the water as guests watch from the upper deck, then host an outdoor picnic overlooking the harbor's yachts.
  • The indoor facility is a nice balance of traditional and contemporary, with lots of large, wood-framed windows so you won't miss a bit of those stunning vistas. Let their event and banquet staff help you plan and and make sure everything goes smoothly.
