What Our Clients

Are Saying

Our wedding reception was in The Lodge. All of the spaces are seriously gorgeous! The staff is so friendly and was always there when I had a million questions. One of their staff members even went with me to the rental place to look at table linens! I would HIGHLY recommend them to any bride looking for an amazing all inclusive venue in the Indianapolis area.

What Guests

Are Saying

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.
