Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Nestled along a peaceful inlet of Lake Michigan and boasting dreamy water and harbor views, this purpose-built venue has relaxed, backyard-inspired vibes and a great location in Ludington, one of the area’s most popular destination beach towns.
  • Wed on a manicured lawn with the peaceful marina as your backdrop—it’s got plenty of space for post-ceremony cocktails and games, and a cozy fire pit, too. The airy, modern reception hall is just steps away, and features a mezzanine level overlooking the entire space, as well as an adjacent terrace.
  • Your twelve-hour rental window ensures your day need never feel rushed, and their packages—even most opulent options—are wonderfully affordable, and always include the help of the Lake House’s talented and helpful events team.
