We got married at Rocks Lodge (a smaller lodge just up the hill from the larger Deer Creek Overlook). I fell in love with Rocks Lodge from the first time I saw it. It is warm and homey and was perfect for our intimate rustic wedding. We loved having our wedding here. The volunteers are very friendly, and the value for the price was outstanding. We also were able to rent the bunk houses so our family and friends could stay the weekend with us, which was exactly what we were looking for. Since we were staying the night, I also got to have my all night dance party (which was one of my must haves) which was going to be a challenge at many other venues.

We did run into a few problems along the way: the site coordinator we were working with left before our wedding leading to a transition period where it was difficult to get timely responses, the chairs and tables we were planning on borrowing were sold the week before our wedding, and someone drove through wet ground at the outdoor site where we were planning to have our ceremony creating deep divots and leading us to move the ceremony into Rocks Lodge as well. However, everything worked out in the end, and Rocks Lodge is such a beautiful space and was our rain plan location anyway. If you do go with this venue, perhaps be prepared for some unexpected issues.

Despite these challenges, I wouldn't have changed our choice. We found everything we were looking for here and I couldn't have been happier with the end result.

Denise was great and was able to accommodate sit downs around our work schedules. Everything was great with this venue until the night before the wedding. At the rehearsal, which was supposed to be outside because the wedding was planned for outside the women that was assigned to our wedding was not very kind, unfortunately we had to move the rehearsal indoors because it was down pouring and she would not let us inside, she expected us to do the rehearsal in the pouring rain and on the drenched field. After complaining she eventually let us inside. Then the day of the wedding, she went to our guests during the reception and proceeding to tell them (including the grandmother of the groom) that they needed to make sure that they were all gone by 10pm when we had rented it until midnight. Just based on the service not by denise but by the women overseeing the night before and night of my wedding I would not recommend Deer Creek Overlook. However if Denise were to oversee then I would. This women was not very people friendly at all and should not be allowed to oversee important events such as these.

Denise did a great job&quickly responded to emails. I ccidentally mailed my final payment to DC (didn't know they had a PO Box)&the $ was about a week late. Most vendors would have had an issue but Denise said it was no problem! She was there to offer suggestions for me at the final meeting which was very helpful.
Lighting is an issue for evening weddings inside. Lights are not on a dimmer. You have the option of on, half, or off. I'm thankful for my DJ's uplights. They provided a few lamps&2 lighted trees.
Price was a little high but it's also the wedding industry. Since I had an off season wedding I had no scheduling issues. I wanted to move the hours of my rehearsal&they were easily able to accomodate us.
Bathroom comes with "care baskets". Very clean and still NEW looking. Beautiful woodland area. Has a separate "bridal room" where you can stash belongings/get ready. Tables&chairs are provided which is great. The chairs are not fancy but they were very comfortable&are wider than most chairs. Very nice&clean kitchen. Large ice maker. Guests liked the landscaping and chairs on the porch. This was perfect for my woodland theme wedding. It has 4 beautiful windows in the hall and a gorgeous porch area. One friend said it felt like a gym hall before we set everything up but once you decorate and have tables and linens done it brings it all together. There is a bridge nearby for photos. There is also a gazebo and the woods made a beautiful backdrop. Inside there aren't really any "pretty" backdrops so you would need to make one.
Verizon doesn't get reception but AT&T got it. Ravens had a PLAYOFF game so my DJ suggested a small TV by the bar to allow people to stay tuned in.DC doesn't have cable. This lead to about 20 people sitting in the bridal room&outside listening to car radios &an AM radio.
Overall I would definitely recommend Deer Creek Overlook. ?'s email me @ allison.mosley39@gmail.com.

I picked this venue because it raises money for the local 4 H in my town. Looking back I wish I would have not underestimated the luxury of a venue that provides the caterer, linens (good ones not plastic), clean up ect. The facility was expensive for only supplying a pretty backdrop for pictures. The field in which they advertise you to get married in cost $300 to use but if it rains you do not get any of that money back. The director stated there would be no refund because the field being rented by us prohibited others from renting (It would be raining...who would rent it anyways). In a matter of 11 months they had 3 different directors. I originally planned and paid for our setup and rehearsal dinner to be Friday night like most weddings. The one director called me 2 months before my wedding and asked if I could switch my setup (which was a lot...remember they do none of that for you) to Saturday and move my rehearsal to 2 hours later. The reason for this change was so another bride who was recently engaged wanted to get married Friday afternoon. I declined stating that Saturday morning of my wedding I would be doing hours of pampering like most brides do and would rather not spend it stressed about setup. I just thought it was incredibly insensitive to a first time brides needs. Another director called my home owner insurance and tried to change my policy without me knowing. I couldn't believe it until Liberty Mutual read me the phone transcript. The director blew it off as a misunderstanding. I was highly disappointed with the facility. My pictures looked great though.

I really appreciated being able to do whatever I wanted with little to no restrictions for my wedding and reception. There are guidelines that must be followed, but not as strict as other venues. Deer Creek Overlook is a beautiful setting for weddings and receptions or any other special event. Location has several great views and backgrounds for pictures.

We originally planned to get married on our farm but it was way too expensive! DCO gave us the farm/woodsy feel but at a much better rate! The kitchen, Tables and chairs were included in the price but paid a little extra for the rehearsal time but that's okay, they had to be paid for their time! A great venue for our 240 guests! Everyone said it was the best weeding they had ever been too!
