You can not get a more beautiful location (on Lake MI) for the price. It's easy to get to from downtown, easy parking, wonderful charm and you can save alot of money by being able to bring in your own caterer and bar. The drawbacks are that it requires a bride and groom who are wiling to do some leg work to coordinate caterer, decorations, bar, etc. or hire someone to do that. I wanted to do that stuff and loved the charm of the place and the view. The bathrooms leave a little something to be desired but they were clean and functional. Also no airconditioning, which was not a problem for our Sept. wedding.
This venue rocked, it was exactly how we imagined it. The sun was out and we got amazing photos by the lake. The difficult part was bringing in all the various businesses separate (catering, drink, flowers, music, etc) and coordinating them.
