“The location is beautiful–the dining room overlooks the lake, they offer linen service, and the food is incredible. The auditorium where we held the ceremony is also beautiful, with lots of windows that allow natural beauty of the outdoors in. It’s very open and clean and new without being too stiff. It can go towards a more formal or a more casual feel. The staff is easy to work with. Highly recommended.”A Recent Event Holder
