The Lake Natoma Inn was the perfect setting for our wedding, reception and as a hotel for our out of town guests. The outdoor patio setting for the ceremony was beautiful and the reception area was immediately adjacent to the patio. All our guests raved about the great food at the reception. All of the staff with whom we worked were very thorough and professional in their jobs and also fun to work with. We highly recommended this venue.

Lake Natoma Inn is a great place for your event. All of the staff that we encountered were very friendly and focused on making me and my husband happy with the services they were providing. They have two beautiful ceremony sites. They give you the freedom to decorate however you'd like and to also design your own meal choices. I also loved how they provide a complimentary room for the bride and groom and offer discounts to guests who choose to stay there as well.

Lake Natoma Inn's Pavillion was the location for my reception. Erin, the wedding coordinator, was amazing! She was prepared and had everything ready, down to the last detail. We had our cocktail hour outside in the gazebo area, which was lit with sparkly lights. We then moved into the Pavillion, the tented event room. Everything was perfect, I recommend Lake Natoma to everyone!

Lake Natoma Inn is a fantastic wedding venue! I worked with Christina throughout the planning process – she is great as well. She is super responsive to any questions or emails, and even as the wedding got closer, she was always available for questions or changes, etc. I never felt like a bother to her. They were very flexible on the buffet options as well – we didn’t really care for the lasagna and they allowed us to switch the food out with another option without charging us extra. They really are there to meet your needs and do what they can to make your day perfect. The day of the wedding ran smooth as well – she was there to coordinate the ceremony, and then the banquet manager pretty much handles the reception. They were great in making sure people knew when to eat, checked in with my husband and I throughout the reception to ensure we had everything we needed, etc. They were super attentive and very easy to work with. The food was excellent!

Just a heads up in regards to the ceremony, LNI does not have any microphones for your minister performing the ceremony. Our DJ didn’t have one either, so our ceremony was performed with no microphone, and some guests commented it was a little difficult to hear, as we are close to Folsom Blvd so you could hear some traffic. I’d highly recommend renting a suite (especially for the girls) the night before – these rooms are great, and overlook the ceremony venue. They are spacious and plenty of room to get ready the next morning. Plus if you’re lucky you get to watch a wedding from your room the night before yours.  All of our guests staying at the hotel indicated their rooms were great with comfortable beds as well, so it’s great for out of town guests. I would definitely recommend LNI for anybody looking for a wedding venue!

Lake Natoma Inn is a great place to choose, especially if you want to have a small, intimate cost-efficient wedding. Their venue coordinators - especially Erin - are fabulous and will ensure that your wedding day goes as planned. I could not have picked a better place. Even my husband - who had no idea what to expect because he played no role in planning - thought it was fabulous! I also received many compliments from other vendors who attended.

The venue is beautiful and the staff really bends over backwards for you. My husband and I even were sent home with two boxes of food and a bottle of champagne for our hotel room!

The lovely thing about the Lake Natoma Inn is that you get to just show up the day of your wedding. There is a wedding coordinator and the chairs, food, and everything is included in the price. I wouldn't have changed anything!

They were AWESOME!! They were easy to work with and were well set-up for weddings. They made our wedding planning so much easier because they handled many details like the food, tablecloths & linens, silverware, dancefloor, servers, bar, etc. The food was excellent. The whole experience was great. The ceremony locations were beautiful, we got married on the patio. Our reception was in the Grand Pavillion, and it was perfectly set-up and catered.

The Wedding Director at Lake Natoma Inn was extremely helpful with each step of the process. She had answers to my questions before I even asked them. She was very much in tune with the concepts that we had for our Ceremony and Reception. I was e-mailing her a ton two to one week before the Wedding and she responded quickly - helping calm my nerves and stresses. I recommend this venue to anyone looking for a site in the Folsom/El Dorado Hills area.

I had always seen pictures online and heard from friends how fabulous it is, but I wasn't prepared for how beautiful it really is. The pictures online do not do it justice. I couldn't have imagined a more beautiful setting for my intimate spring wedding. The staff is wonderful! After many of my phone calls going unanswered at other local sites, I was impressed and excited when Erin called me back less than an hour later. The customer service and expertise that she has is beyond belief. Not only was I impressed with Erin, but on the night of my wedding the banquet staff was phenomnal! No wonder everyone I know has gotten married here. If you are looking for a site that really focuses on you and makes your day everything that you imagined, I reccomend that you come here first!

As beautiful as our wedding venue was we also decided to get a reception venue as well. My wife and I wanted to go all out. It was breathtaking to see all the food at the reception venue. After our wedding the guests all arrived at the Lake Natoma Inn for the festivities afterwards. The staff was so courteous and friendly to everyone. The food was all set up, as was the dance floor, the band, everything! They set up everything beautifully and did a great of setting up and taking the stuff down afterwards. They were prompt and made sure everything was going according to plan. I'm glad we got the reception venue and it wasn't that expensive as well. I would go back again if I am ever in the neighborhood. Thanks again!

We were VERY happy with the service we received at the Lake Natoma Inn! They provided a beautiful reception for us with amazing food and beverages. Everything was just as we imagined it to be! They were so nice to us, and even let us extend the reception another hour since we had do many guests. We stayed the night in their honeymoon suite, which was amazing. In the morning, we observed out-of-town guests strolling through the bike trail along the lake and enjoying themselves, all from the veiw off one of our terraces. We couln't have asked for anything more!

The staff at Lake Natoma Inn are very friendly and helpful. I never felt like I was being bullied or pushed in a certain direction. On the actual day, everything ran smoothly. The wedding coordinator is there before and after the ceremony and then the reception manager takes care of everything at the reception. Having our wedding at Lake Natoma Inn made the day absolutely stress free for both of us.

Excellent the day making sure everything was set up but was told we could get into the reception hall anytime in the moring. The first time we went down at 7 to set up we were told it would be an hour to be able to start set up. Bride had to complain and we got in at 730. But that was a stress a bride did not need the day of!

We got married at Lake Natoma Inn and had a WONDERFUL experience. It's an affordable, beautiful place, and the wedding coordinators (Erin LoBue and Christina Menth) are incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and professional.

The food was great, and the banquet captain (Jane) was SO sweet and attentive! She saved for us a bottle of champagne and to-go boxes of food and dessert for us to enjoy for dinner!

It is AWESOME having professionals take care of your wedding and NOT have to rent tables and chairs, rent linens, test caterers, hire a coordinator, etc... AND PLUS, guests LOVE not having to drive between the ceremony and reception!

The area around the hotel are beautiful-- the antique shops and the trail leading down to the lake...

It was the most memorable day of our lives, and we are SO grateful for the LNI staff for that!!!

We mostly worked with Christina at Lake Natoma Inn. She was terrific, as were all the other staff that were part of our wedding day. The venue was in our budget (which was tight) but did not feel "cheap". Yes, they are a bit of a "wedding mill", but in their favor, this means they've really got this thing down and it all goes very smoothly!! The food was good and the presentation was above our expectations. The outdoor ceremony areas are beautiful and provide a great backdrop for photos. We liked having the ceremony and reception at the same venue (a convenience for our guests) and we loved that it is walking distance into downtown Folsom. The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially the banquet staff at the reception. We would recommend Lake Natoma Inn for your wedding event.

We used Lake Natoma Inn for our honeymoon. It was absolutely beautiful and romantic. Our room was large and had a jaccuzi tub in the bedroom. The staff was professional and helpful in bringing us things we needed, printing out maps for us of places to eat, etc. The following day we were able to walk around town and look at all the ittle antiquey shops and restaraunts. It is such a cute little town and the hotel is beautiful and sits right on the lake with trails that you can walk around on and just enjoy the view.

We loved our wedding at Lake Natoma Inn! The current wedding sales coordinator, Christina, was absolutely awesome to work with. She was genuine and incredibly helpful, and definitely a calming presence as the ceremony approached. The hotel and nearby Historic Folsom were super convenient and also a nice setting to spend the weekend with our family and friends in. All of our vendors, with the exception of the baker, were perferred vendors from Lake Natoma Inn and left our guests impressed and the hubby and I satisfied. I heard a few comments from guests about reception staff - unfriendly bar tender, witnessed frosting swipes (prior to the cake cutting) by wait staff - but overall, everyone was impressed with the venue, the food and for our party animal friends, the full bar we sprang for. Depsite a few things, which are just stories to tell and retell anyway, we are still glowing from such a wonderful weekend.

I was very dissapointed with this venue. We had our wedding on a Friday when the next day was completely booked. We were completely ignored on the day of our wedding. The even held rehearsals in our ceremony site 30 minutes before the wedding started. The party was touching everything and drinking the water put out for our guests. We didn't see our coordinator until right before we were supposed to walk down the isle. The food was taken away too early at the dinner service. The staff started taking down things before our scheduled end time. I was very disheartened considering everyone was so nice to us up until our actual wedding day.

Prior to the wedding everyone was very friendly. I was uneasy about signing the contract because when I asked questions their answers were affirmative but they would not put it in writing.

I am the mother of the bride and I was paying for the wedding and signed the contract and asked them to deal with me and they periodically dealt with my daughter instead which then caused confusion and problems.

I told there wedding coordinator to not put any nuts in the salad and to put them separate in a bowl on three different occasions because some of the guests had extreme nut allergies and could die. However, on the day of the wedding the nuts were mixed in the salad.

The day of the wedding was a disaster and they made me miss part of my daughters wedding and brought me to tears.

First of all the so called wedding coordinator either knew very little about the wedding ceremony or just didn't do her job. The minister had to take over and if he didn't the ceremony would have been a disaster.

On the day of the wedding, the chairs were wet and I had to ask the staff 3 times before someone came out to wipe them. If it hadn't been for my sister in law, the groomsman would have walked out without their boutonnieres. During the reception, the wedding coordinator was nowhere in site and the staff was unresponsive.

The food was supposed to be available for seconds as discussed and yet it was removed before anyone had a chance to get any. I took very little food the first time expecting to go back and the food was removed and I only had 3 items and left the wedding starved after paying all of those thousands.

They started clearing the tables to prepare for their next guests before the wedding even ended. I missed the last part of the wedding because the staff stared removing all of our stuff and putting it outside. I had to get involved before everything was lost. Consequently close to 10 gifts disappeared, flower vases were broken for which I was financially responsible for plus I missed my own daughters wedding. The wedding coordinator was no where in sight. The wedding ended with me crying because of Natoma Inn's actions.

I felt that they owed me a partial refund for removing the food early and not allowing for any seconds as was verbally agreed to plus all of the other short comings. When I contacted them, they put all the blame on me. Even the part about the nuts. Everything was denied.

Therefore, if you still decide to have your wedding here make certain that every item is in writing in spite of verbal assurance of the smiling ladies. Everything will be denied that is not written down no matter how many times you discussed this with the wedding coordinators.

In addition, at the rehearsal on the day before the wedding, I sat down on their bench and it broke. I was seriously physically injured. I am still in medical treatment. When their insurance company contacted me, they tried to find a way to blame me for the breakage of the bench when all I did was sit on it.
