We spent weeks trying to find a place in the Indianapolis area for our wedding reception. Of all people we met, Shawn and her team were the most attentive, genuine and professional. We made a great choice! Our wedding was SO magical and beautiful!! Shawn and her team were very accommodating, informative and great to work with throughout the whole process. The food is also out of this world! Excellent quality at an excellent price!

Very nice location for weddings, fundraising, or any other special events. They have a lodge by the water and when the weather is nice it is very beautiful. The staff works hard and everybody is always in a good mood. The food is also delicious.
