The Life Saving Station in Elberta, Michigan is available for rental. Popular as a great all in one wedding and reception venue, the Life Saving Station is available for rental all week.
A beautiful location on the bay. We had the ceremony in the bandshell and fit about 120 guest in folding chairs. We had the reception in the main room with dancing on the porch. Perfect.
Great place if you are only having 120 or fewer guests. We planned for 120 and it made the room a little tight. But in the end it was a great location. The deck is perfect for those who want to get out and chat. Depending on the weather you can open the double doors and expand the reception to the deck. Our orignal plan was to have the DJ set up outside but there was a great chance of rain so we had to move him inside. We had a tent on the deck still so our guest were able to be outside still.
Worked beautifully! See before you book, as there are two separate rooms to get to their "capacity". So we wound up with an extra tent... but you can't beat the location and it was amazing.
Site was great. We had Rip & Run put up a tent next to the Station because all our guests wouldn't fit inside the main room. We did however use the inside for cocktail hour. Worked out great!
If you like a nautical themed wedding with less than 160 people this is the place. It is historical and beautiful. There is space outside for a tent if needed for more people but that takes away from the atmosphere.
