These may include wedding planners, bakeries (for your wedding cake), photography services, party supplies, printing, flowers, DJ and music services, audio/video equipment and much more. Just let us know what you need and we can find it! Though most of our corporate and group events guests come purely to enjoy camaraderie, team building and the great outdoors, we have facilitated business meetings in our lodge as well – complete with A/V facilities. If you have special needs for conducting a meeting during your stay, let us know and we’ll work with you for a successful outcome.
While we are not licensed, our bar is fully equipped and we can stock it according to your requirements before you arrive so you can host your own private self-serve bar service. Guests are also welcome to bring their drinks into our dining room to enjoy with their meal.
Our Master Chef is accustomed to tailoring a menu to varying tastes and needs. We will meet with you to plan all your meals in advance of your visit and can also address any allergies or special meal requirements you may have in your group. Buffet service is also a popular option
