This picturesque venue is perfect for wedding ceremonies, receptions, and rehearsal dinners. With 5,000 feet of entertaining space, the Evergreen Lake House features a great room, which can seat up to 200 with a large stone fireplace, and a smaller octagon room, which is often used for a buffet.

For outdoor ceremonies, the deck can seat up to 80 with additional standing room for a charming and intimate wedding ceremony celebration. There are log railings around the deck with a flagstone deck to the grassy area. The railings can be decorated with flowers or greenery, allowing guests to take in the beautiful shimmering lake beyond as well as the surrounding mountain views. Read less

The Evergreen Lake House has beautiful picturesque views of the lake and is nestled in the foothills of Denver. The location is perfect and the venue is maintained beautifully. The tables and chairs are all brand new and the floor glistens, almost reflecting the lake itself. Our caterer used the upscale, spacious kitchen allowing a perfect dining experience for our guests. Lorna was very professional, knowledgeable and a huge help with recommendations and ideas!! She was always available and efficient in answering our questions and friendly! The tables were set perfectly and the fireplace is an added touch! Brad and Kim were most delightful to work with as well! The entire experience from start to finish was perfect thanks to a wonderful staff and gorgeous venue!! An awesome venue and good value!!! Memories are priceless! Thank you to all of you for making it so very special!!

The Lake House was an extraordinary setting-especially for what turned out to be a 'snow-globe wedding' (April in the Rockies is always a surprise weather situation). The Octagon Room was set up per our specifications with surround seating for the ceremony with ample room in the middle for a beautiful arch to frame the couple as they exchanged their vows. The views through the windows with the snowfall helped coin the phrase "snow globe" setting!
Lorna was most helpful with arranging the tables and chairs for both the ceremony in the Octagon Room and in the main area for the reception. I found the best communication to be via email and she was always very prompt in responding, answering questions and providing information/clarification. About 2 weeks prior we asked for a slight change in the times and she was very accommodating to make it work for us.
Kim was assigned to support our event and stayed on the premises throughout and even helped us during final clean up.
Our caterers were pleased with the set up, as were our bartenders-ice machine was well-stocked.
When we booked this venue I read other comments and just want to remind future clients that especially in a wedding situation where drama and emotions can be elevated, the women that we dealt with were calm and professional.

Evergreen Lake House was the most fantastic place to have our wedding. In all regards, the venue was very professional in handling our event and for the most part was very responsive. The value was good, considering it was the place where we held our ceremony and reception - providing convenience for our guests and vendors.

If you can lock down this venue for your date and have the budget to afford it, I would recommend this quaint venue!

We had our March wedding here and they normally don't have weddings during this timeframe due to the weather but they made sure everything was ready and beautiful for our big day. I had been concerned that it would be cold in thehouse Lake but that was not the case. It was cozy and the setting was stunning! We wouldn't have changed a thing! I hope YOUR day is WONDERFUL!

Absolutely gorgeous venue, the pictures we took were fantastic. I have to laugh at all of the other reviews for this venue because I know the "unhelpful woman who runs the lake house' personally. Yes, she is pretty brusque, but I have always taken that as a no-nonsense attitude, meant mostly to assure that things get done instead of talking uselessly for hours. I looked for several months at other venues before settling on this one, and I am surprised that other reviewers found it to be expensive. There were only two venues in the mountain/foothills area I found that were cheaper than this (yes, I did need it to be on a Saturday): the first required you to use their caterer who was ungodly expensive and had bad food, and the second was nice but was located next to a campground. My wedding was Labor Day weekend, so we chose not to hear the campers during our ceremony.
The Lake House can be difficult to book, as they use a lottery system to book their weddings since it is a state-run facility. The year prior to your chosen wedding month, you must go to the venue on the first of the month, pick a lottery ticket, and wait for your number to be called. If the first person picked chooses your preferred date and time slot, they get it, not you. If you choose this venue, you should be flexible in your wedding date and/or time.
Lastly, I wholeheartedly agree with Elevate Photography's review: Get ready elsewhere. There is not much room to do so, and the room they do have is not well-lit. I wouldn't even suggest considering getting dressed there unless you only have one attendant because a poofy dress could easily take up the whole room.
Overall, beautiful and clean! Loved it.

Evergreen Lake House is the most beautiful place to get married in Colorado. The venue is extremely well maintained and the atmosphere is unbeatable.

The only problem with the lake house is Lorna, the lady who runs it. She is very rude, inflexible, and unpleasant. If it weren't for her. The lake house would have 5 stars from me.

We looked at a LOT of properties before we finally signed on with the Lake House in Evergreen, CO. Most of them had limited capacity and restraining (expensive) requirements .

-- The location of this venue is perfect ! ! -- IN the mountains on a beautiful lake and less than hour away from the big city (Denver).
-- The charm of the big log building stands alone (minimal decoration is required!). It has an open vaulted ceiling with big log beams & huge attractive light fixtures. + Awesome decks overlooking the lake and beautiful grounds for your guests to wander (and take beautiful pictures!)
-- AND we found it to be the very best value (tables & chairs are included in the price!) We especially liked this because we are a family of "do-it-yourselfers" (artists, florists, bakers & gourmet chefs)
THIS is why we chose this venue so that we could do it ourselves -- you hire your own vendors (or do it yourself) There IS no staff at this venue (no added expense) The staff is supplied by your caterer (or yourself)

The manager at this property was VERY helpful to us with referrals. She has a book full of local vendors to fill in the gaps and she answered all of questions and made suggestions on our setup (she knows what works and what doesn't)

Overall OUR event was a 10 ! ! Hope yours is too!

**parking could be an issue --
in the summer/on weekends as this is a public park

This is an absolutely beautiful venue and we were super happy with it for our wedding and reception. The only trouble with the whole place was the woman who runs it...grumpy, rude, not helpful and just really unpleasant. We did have a brief encounter with Brad and he was fantastic...just the opposite of the experience that we had with his collegue. We didn't have too much to do with the woman running it, however, and the venue was definitely unbeatable for us.

We used the Evergreen Lake house for our ceremony and reception venue. It is o beautiful. For us it was the prefect compromise. I wanted to get married outside and my husband said anything but a barn. The lake house next to a golf course, so on one side there are manicured lawns (we made the short walk and took some pictures on one of the fairways). Some people said the woman in charge was hard to work with but that was not our experience at all. It was actually nice to only talk to one person. She returned all our phone calls and was at every meeting and there the day of the wedding. We got married on a Monday in May and she was very flexible with the time slot. The Value of the Lake house was its original selling point for us (tables are included). The biggest surprise was that the value did not come with fine print. The experience was perfect.
