A Private, Scenic, Intimate Setting...

Communication Skills

I had my ceremony and reception at Mountain Lakes House and it was the most beautiful day I could ever have imagined. The place is just an amazing backdrop, somewhat of a blank canvas that you fill with your creative ideas of what you want your day to be. Sally, the administrator, was warm, friendly, flexible and beyond helpful with any questions or concerns regarding creating what my day was to become. She doesn't get involved in any aspect, unless you ask her to be, which was perfect for us. If you want a private, scenic, intimate setting for your wedding day, where you provide all the creative details yourself, this is the place to be. It was like having the wedding in someone's beautiful lake front home, without the owners looking over your shoulder. Not to mention, this is in the heart of acres of nature preserve, so did I mention it was private? I would STRONGLY recommend using a caterer, florist and DJ who know this place inside and out. A very unique and charming venue.

It Truly Was The Perfect Place!

Communication Skills

The Mountain Lakes House was the perfect venue for our wedding! Both of us are outdoorsy people, and we were having trouble finding a venue that would allow our love for the outdoors shine but also be able to accommodate our group should the weather not be ideal. The Mountain Lakes House was the very last venue we looked at, and I joked that we saved the best for last: it truly was the perfect place. Sally was very easy to reach via email, and she was always prompt in responding to any questions. I loved the fact that it was pretty much a blank slate that we could make our own, and that we were able to utilize both the patio and the inside rooms was such a plus! We lucked out with gorgeous weather on our wedding day, but Plan B was closing the "curtains" on the patio should we have gotten rain. Our ceremony was right by the lake and was breathtaking! This venue is absolutely amazing!

The Venue Is A Blank Canvas...

Communication Skills

We had the most beautiful wedding at Mountain Lakes! The venue is basically a blank canvas for you to create your perfect wedding. The lawn was a great spot for lots of yard games and pictures. All of our tables fit on the outside terraces and the dance floor fit all of our guests. The only thing to keep in mind is that you have to bring in almost everything yourself. The contract allows you to enter the house about 4 hours before the start of the reception so it may be a little tricky to figure out who can go over and decorate during that time frame. We got so many wonderful compliments from our guests about the unique setting.
