Simply perfect location! The elk came out to play in the lake during our ceremony and a beaver seam by. Such a beautiful mountain venue, inside and out. The only tricky part is the timing for set up. I recommend having a well organized plan to get all vendors in and set up within one hour. Our set up took a small army because I had a significant amount of decor to be placed. But it all got done exactly to plan and it was the wedding of our dreams!

We are so so so SO happy we chose the Lake House for our wedding! We live in Evergreen so it's a treat to be able to drive by it all the time.

I know people say they aren't huge fans of Lorna but I disagree--you just have to get that she's not a "cheerleader" personality and has a dry sense of humor. I think she is great to work with! We changed our date twice, by no more than a couple weeks each time, and had no problem doing so--Lorna was extremely accommodating for this and during every other step in the process.

We also really enjoyed working with Christine, with whom we met for the final walkthrough and who was sweet and funny. She was SUPER on top of things when the forecast brought us SNOW on our April 30th wedding. She exchanged e-mails with us and our day-of coordinator the week before about some great ideas and really helped us adapt to the change in plans for our outdoor wedding (which now included market umbrellas and lots of quilts to keep our guests warm so we could still have the ceremony outside).

As for the physical venue itself, you can't really beat the Lake House. It's naturally just so beautiful that you hardly need any decorations to make it really stunning for your wedding. The fireplace inside is also awesome and has a mantle you can decorate to make it look super romantic. The fee is pretty expensive but does include high-quality, white, wooden chairs for the ceremony, as well as all your tables for your reception.

Be warned, though, that if you have a summer wedding there you may have kayakers and fishermen in the background of your ceremony photos, since the lake is owned by Parks & Rec and it's a really popular spot for fun on the water in Evergreen. (Lucky for us, there wasn't anyone out on the lake on our wedding day because it was too chilly!)

I loved this venue as this is the place I grew up ice skating as a child. I don't think I've ever been to a wedding venue with more beautiful views!
There are pluses and minuses to this venue. First of all, this is really affordable. However, if you plan on having an evening wedding and only rent the place for a half day, the earliest you can get in is 5 pm... which doesn't give vendors a lot of time to get ready or to decorate anything. Our vendors were awesome and I had a team of wonder women who helped decorate the place with our DIY centerpieces and table numbers and all our flowers, but it was tight. If you are going to rehearse your wedding here, you only get a half hour, which worked for us, but if you need more time ask before you sign the contract.
The Lake House is also pretty picky about cleanup and setup. As our vendors were leaving for the night, one of them drove through the grass and the coordinator at the venue came out and yelled at everyone. And as she walked away, we heard her say some very unprofessional things. Another minus is that you won't be able to control who or what is on the lake that day, we had a group of paddle boats come right up and listen to our ceremony and our photographer will have to get creative to edit them out of our photos. You can also only have 80 chairs at the ceremony, the rest of your guests will have to stand in the back.
I loved this place, but there are some things you have to give up if you want to have your wedding here. I think that the views are all worth it, and having the lovely indoor/outdoor spaces are perfect for a summer wedding. Our guests loved it as well! For us, this place had a really special meaning, and does even more so now! We even had some elk come down to watch as we danced later that night! So if you are looking at this place, make sure that their policies won't eliminate something that you really think is important for your night. They don't allow sparklers due to fire concerns...

We got married here last week and words just don't do justice the the beauty of this venue. It is the absolute perfect location. SO SO SO beautiful inside and out. Our pictures look like they are straight out of a wedding magazine. We loved the deck for the ceremony, but were also thrilled they had an easy plan B in case of rain that is just as beautiful inside the Lake House. The wood walls, stone fireplace and chandeliers are just so tastefully done you barely have to worry about decorations. We didn't do anything for our ceremony on the deck. It was really great to be able to utilize the deck, the patio, inside and the grounds for photos and the whole evening. Lorna was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was always available via email or phone when I had questions. So much flexibility with vendors. There really weren't any restrictions. No sparklers, bubbles, confetti, rice or bird seeds for send off... this was one thing I was little bummed about, but our coordinator problem solved with glow sticks. They do a raffle for picking dates. They open the first of the month 12 months in advanced. I.e. if you wanted to get married August 15, 2016... you have to physically be there on Aug 1, 2015 and you draw numbers to chose your date. We really weren't picky about a date and got married on a Thursday, so this wasn't earth shattering for us at all, but I can imagine this would be a gamble if you had your heart set on a specific date. It's really just too beautiful to even be upset about a date though.

I got married at Evergreen Lake House this summer, and it was everything I wanted. The venue is so gorgeous that the decorations for the reception and ceremony are so minimal which makes planning a wedding so easy! The views are breathtaking and the condition of the reception hall are flawless. I loved the rustic wood with the glamour of the chandeliers and large windows. My guests are still talking about how beautiful it is. In addition, your guests are not all stuck in one room. They are free to move about the deck, look at the lake, or keep dancing! While it was difficult to reach people by phone, the venue is still very responsive and I just used email. They were flexible with my caterers needs and with my needs. I enjoyed everyone I worked with here, there were no hidden fees, and the staff was incredibly helpful and supportive the night of my wedding. If booking this venue fits in with your budget and the date of the wedding, and you want a laid back staff and wedding planning experience, you should definitely get married here! I would not change a single thing.

The Evergreen Lake House was the perfect place for our wedding. Being from the east coast and now living in Colorado, one of the things that I miss the most is the ocean and so when I was looking for a venue, I wanted, no decided, I must have a venue that has water views.

When I started looking at my options it was clear that the only place for us was the Evergreen Lake House. It was in our budget, has an absolutely beautiful view and is just the perfect venue in the most quaint town. It was very easy for me to find local vendors to help out with additional needs such as a bartender and rental store and because everyone knows each other, I felt good about giving the town our business.

The venue itself is just breathtaking with its very rustic, log cabin look, very large open space and wrap around decks. The lake itself is not very large but the venue is set up so you can get married right at the edge of the lake. We even had a beaver swim by during our ceremony!

The staff at the Lake House are all very professional and helpful and on the day of my wedding, Jennifer was there to help us make sure everything went smoothly and she was an absolute pleasure to work with. When I first walked in, I had a moment of being completely overwhelmed by the whole event and Jennifer was there to assure me everything would be ok, and it was!

I highly recommend this venue for anyone who wants the most picturesque, rustic, waterfront venue in Colorado, that won't break your budget!

My husband and I really wanted to get married in the mountains and share our love for Colorado with our guests from around the country. The Lake House was the perfect spot for us to have our reception...it sits on a beautiful lake and has the feel of a mountain lodge, it is in a great location for your out of town guests to enjoy the mountains and your in town guests to save on a hotel room, and even has a cool boardwalk to take some neat pictures.

The Lake House has a few negatives. The first, is that it has a really small kitchen and they only provide the tables and chairs. I completely underestimated the amount it would cost to rent linens, glasses, plates, silverware, napkins, hire waitstaff, and set up a bar. When I first made my budget, I called two catering companies to get pricing for a bar, food, and linens. I made my budget based on the average price of the two companies. However, the actual prices ended up being much higher. Both companies hid a lot of 'fees' in the bid that they ended up charging when I called for a final estimate. You should also budget three of your seven hours for set-up and tear-down. Every caterer asked for two hours to prepare the room.

The second problem is that the caterers told me that the Lake House is now charging a fee to all the catering companies on the back-end. This is an indirect cost increase that the catering companies pass on to the customer. It would be better to just raise the price up front so that customers can make a proper budget.

The third, is that it is heavily regulated. Unfortunately, this will make you jump through some hoops before the wedding. Fortunately, this also helps you get your security deposit back quickly. At least the staff tries to help you out as much as they can, with the rules they have to deal with.

Overall the Lake House was a breathtaking and stunning mountain venue, and I would definitely get married there again. Just make sure to budget (for time and money) accordingly.

I absolutely loved the Lake House. I grew up in Evergreen so it was really special to have the wedding there. It is a beautiful location and their staff was great to work with. The venue was on the expensive side but it more than made up for it by being able to bring in our own alcohol and caterer of choice. Would recommend to anyone!
