Anybody who's looking for a beautiful outdoor location to get married, call the Mississippi Dunes in Cottage Grove! It's a gorgeous golf course on the Mississippi river. The outdoor ceremony location is incredible! The reception area is beautiful and convenient! And most importantly, the staff was awesome! Our wedding was beautiful, the food was amazing (we offered prime rib or walleye), the service was professional and they were really ontop of things! We had many compliments on the ceremony location, the reception location, and the food! I can't thank the Dunes enough for making our day so wonderful! The pictures on their website are great but when you see it in person the views are amazing!

We got so many complements on the venue I cannot put into words how happy I am! We worked with Dennis and Tyler through out the year and they were so flexible and accomodating. My wedding day was perfect and I would recommend this place to anyone!!

This venue was perfect for our wedding. It holds up to 275 people and the event coordinator, Susan, is a very kind and helpful person. The food was delicious and everyone was very helpful in making our night a success. The view from the room is phenomenal!! All windows looking onto the river. Couldn't have asked for anything better!

They were awesome! They set everything up, so we didn't have to worry about a thing. The day of the wedding our contact person came to us every couple of hours to see how things were going and to see if we needed anything else (very pleased that they did this!)

I would highly reccomend having your ceremony & dance here. There ceremony site is GEORGEOUS! It is in a wooded area right off of the Mississippi River.

Our reception at Mississippi Dunes was beautiful. The views to the golf course and river were absolutely amazing, and well worth picking this as our reception site! The food was also wonderful. The staff knew exactly what to do and served our guests very well and timely. Dennis is the manager, and was also great to work with and his staff knew exactly what to do before we even got there. There was nothing for us to worry about, which is a great peace of mind on your wedding day. (They also have free tastings for 2 people throughout the year with the room set up as it would be for your wedding.)

Our ceremony and reception was absolutely stunning. There are not enough words to describe how perfect everything was. Tyler and Dennis were very accommodating and professional throughout our experience.

We were allowed to drop off decorations and linens the day before and when we got there at 12:30 90% of the ceremony and receptions were completely set up even though the ceremony didn't start until 5:30.

Our family and friends also raved about the excellent service throughout dinner with extra ranch, different drinks, and overall attentiveness. The bartender was very friendly, quick service and even remembered what people were drinking!

Also, the draping with icicle lights was included in our room rental fee. Many places will charge you for set up and take down. They set up everything and took everything down without a fee. They hung paper lanters, tied chair sashes, lit candles, set up the desert/candy table, put out centerpieces and other flowers/decorations.

That being said there was a lot of event coordinator turn over-but in the end that didn't matter at all because they kept great notes that contained our details. The only reason I score a 3.5 on responsiveness is because I wish there was better communication during the employee turn over.

We are still getting compliments and are simply overwhelmed with the success of our wedding day!!!
Thank you so much everyone that was involved :)

Prior to our wedding, there was a lot of event coordinator turnover. One of the event coordintors during that time really really had me concerend. I was not confident she would be able to pull my wedding together as I was envisioning; she seemed like she was going to drop the ball on everything. A few months before our wedding date, the coordinator that I was concerned about left and Mississippi Dunes hired Dennis back to take on the event coordinator role. He used to work for Mississippi Dunes in the past (2005-2010) and had a good reputation. Dennis was great to work with and our wedding day was amazing! Before the wedding, everyone was outside taking pictures and Mississippi Dunes staff even came down with pitchers of water for everyone since it was so hot outside. All the staff working that night were very friendly, attentive, and communicated with us throughout the night. They had all the details and decorations in place just as we had discussed. The food wad delicous! The bartender was great too. He was great at interating and talking to the guests at the bar and he was quick at getting drinks out. Our guests loved the site as well and we have heard nothing but good things! Everyone loved the wrap around deck and the beautiful views! Everything was perfect!

Mississippi Dunes is beautiful and the ceremony site was straight out of your dreams! The food was great, the servers were great, and the bartenders are great. I felt that Dennis, the General Manager was very unenthusiatic about handling weddings. We had to initiate contact with him at every point in the process and when I scheduled our appointment to go over details the week before Dennis had someone else stand in his place without even mentioning that he didn't plan to meet with us himself. For how much money we spent to have our ceremony and reception held here I felt like I was imposing upon his time.

Our wedding reception, overall, was a huge success. Much of it was due to our own input into the details. However the staff at Mississippi Dunes was, for the most part, terrific to work with. In the time from when we decided to hold our reception there to the time that our reception happened there were 2 turnovers in wedding coordinators (including Susan mentioned in another review), with the GM stepping in during the lags. Given that, I thought their ability to adapt was very good.
There were a few things that happened during our reception that I wasn't thrilled about - some tables were not setup properly, based on what we had discussed, and we had received the wrong dimensions for a tent to be delivered. However, the venue made up for their error and honored everything they promised us.
I also have to mention that, when we decided to have our reception there, the decor left a lot to be desired. However, they have since remodeled & it is a beautiful location for a wedding. We got rave reviews from our guests on our cocktail reception and our dinner reception. I would recommend this venue to others.

The venue and food were perfect.. we were disappointed with the lack of support and attention to detail. Emails sent were never completely responded to, as a result many questions were not answered. The air conditioning was poor, and on a warm, not even hot summer night, we struggled keeping people cool. We were told that there would be a manager available during the entire wedding and that he would see to everything running smoothly. He was around but, we had to search for him. We had to hunt down a knife to cut the cake. My biggest complaint was that I was misguided about the amount of wine to purchase. We ran out before pictures were even completed.. one hour into the reception. I had told the bar tender to open more as needed and it was never done.
If you choose to use this venue.. make sure you have the female manager working with you. She seemed much more on top of what needs to get done. The male struggled with attention to details.
The food was very good and we were very lucky to have good weather for the wedding it self. Our group size was perfect for the space. I do not think I would go any larger.

It was nice to be able to get in and set up early. It was also nice that we were the only wedding at the venue. We had it to our selves.

Beautiful venue but their manager Dennis did everything in his power to ruin our wedding. He didn't pay attention to any details. He told us his staff would apply seat covers but they never did. Our wedding party did that for them. A member of his staff also took us out on a golf cart to show us locations of the course we could have our wedding photos taken, the day of our wedding Dennis told us we aren't allowed on the course even though Mississippi Dunes staff spent a day with us on the course for photo locations. He even yelled at my bride when she asked when we could take a cart out for pictures.
