Why Choose An Affair By The Lake?
At An Affair by the Lake, we are committed to making your wedding day as stress-free as possible. In order to devote ourselves to the attention each wedding deserves, we limit the number of events we host each season. From first phone call to final farewell, we will personally work alongside you to guide you through the planning process. On your wedding day, we will oversee even the tiniest detail so that you are free to enjoy the most joyous day of your life.
When you book an event with An Affair by the Lake, unlike many other venues, you have exclusive use of our spacious home and grounds. Prior to your wedding day you, your family or close friends can spend time together just relaxing and watching the sunset or sipping your morning coffee overlooking the lake. It is also the perfect place for your rehearsal dinner, so there is no need to leave the property. End the evening with a bonfire on the lakeshore. Party the night away at your reception, as there are no time constraints. After the wedding, savor the memories of the day before while enjoying Sunday morning brunch.
