Letters of Thanks

Seth's Rehearsal Dinner Party

Hello Trish, Thank-you for hosting Seth’s Rehearsal Dinner Party. We have received mutiple compliments about how fun and enjoyable it was. The Estate is a great backdrop for any party / celebration, but what truly makes the experience memorable and worthwhile is all the preparation you do to ensure “it works,” all the while taking everything in stride and attending to every detail. When we first met you & Dawn, I realized we were dealing with very successful and accomplished persons, who have great business savvy. When the event ended, we left with an even greater appreciation for your talents and realized more importantly, we had made a great friendship. All the best, Hugh.

Leslie was thrilled with everything. Again, you and Dawn did a phenomenal job. Your house is gorgeous, and we will definitely recommend you guys! Also, we truly appreciate you letting us keep the dogs inside. As you know, they are our children and mean a lot to us. Take care, Tuey


Gardner / Cannady Wedding

Thank you both so very much! My wedding was everything I could have asked for and more! I am so happy to say I was married at Lake O' The Woods! You both were wonderful and I cannot express how pleased I am with my ceremony and reception! Lee and I will definately tell everyone we know how fabulous you two are and how beautiful of a place to hold weddings and receptions. One thing, Lee’s grandmother has been asking what kind of cheeses you had on the buffet, she loved them! Her favorite was the one that had red on it?!?! Just get back with me whenever you get a chance and thank you both again! (yay!!!!)

Barnes / Jones Wedding

Hello Trish, Slowly I am recovering from the physical and mental drain of the weddings. We could not have dreamed of a more perfect setting and enjoyable celebration. There is nothing but over-the-top positive feedback from your venue. I hope someone I know plans a wedding at some point with you all so I can return to Lake O’ The Woods. Warmly, Danita (Barnes)

Kristin / Bradley Wedding

It was such a beautiful and happy day for Bradley and Kristin, family and friends.

We all appreciate your vision of Lake O’ The Woods and how it has come to be. Your diligence through the years in restoring the property and how you serve people like they are your own, has made the venue a place that has blessed so many families.

Thank you Dawn and Trish (and others) for making the weekend at Lake O’ operate smoothly so family and friends could delight in such a lovely place while celebrating the marriage of Kristin and Bradley.

Sincerely and God bless.

Amy Martin
