The Refuge is a beautiful, rustic, yet modern wedding venue. We received so many compliments from our guests’ that it was the most beautiful venue they had ever seen. The vaulted ceilings and wood work was amazing. It is also reassuring to know they have two backup plans in case it rains; under the covered patio or inside.

My only complaint is the tiny room for the bridal party to get ready in and no room for the groomsmen. There is no natural light in the bridal room and the connected bathroom had a strange musty odor. However, I am glad that there was a room since it was better than nothing. We ended up doing our makeup in the stairwell where there was natural light.

Jessica, the wedding coordinator was great to work with and very responsive to our emails. The Refuge is a must see venue in the north metro.

We loved having our wedding at The Refuge. It was the absolutely perfect balance of rustic and elegant for us. We also wanted to be able to get married outside with a good back-up plan. Unlike many venues where "back-up" plan is having guests sit at their dinner tables, The Refuge offers a beautiful wrap-around porch/patio to get married on in the case of rain. Fortunately, we had beautiful weather but it was reassuring to me to know that there was a good back-up.

Jessica, the wedding coordinator, was incredibly helpful, friendly, and very understanding of my many questions. She made me feel very comfortable that things would go smoothly the day of the wedding and they did. There were a few small things that could have been better (golf carts going behind us during pictures, the bartenders not asking our contact person if we wanted to go to the reserve alcohol) but I attribute some of those things to Jessica not being there the day of the wedding and it being run by someone who was less familiar with our plan for the day. None of these things influenced how well our day went, they were just very small things that could have been improved on.

We had a perfect wedding day! I would highly recommend The Refuge. It is a beautiful venue that is more reasonably priced than many of the other place near Minneapolis/St. Paul and the staff are very helpful.

We were married outside at The Refuge underneath their new cedar "gazebo/canopy."

We were married around 6 p.m and realized that the setting sun was glaring in everyone's eyes at that time. Something to be aware of for your guests.

While the facilities beautiful, we were VERY disappointed when GOLFERS whizzed by in their golf carts during our ceremony!! We had discussed this with all the wedding planners (they changed planners 3 times during the few months leading up to our August wedding) and were assured that access to the ceremony area would be restricted to golfers. Well, it wasn't.

Also, when planning the dinner, we weren't aware that we could have invited parents/bridal party to the dinner tasting. No one told us. That was something we regret not having been able to share.

A phone call from the wedding planner following a wedding would be a nice courtesy.
Much money is spent here on a ceremony/reception. It would be nice to feel as though there is a personal touch involved and not just a business transaction. No initiative to seek feedback.

They were great and I truly believe a wonderful value. The whole team was amazing to work with; people loved the food and the venue. It was a great place to have the wedding. I did actually recommend it to a co-worker's daughter; they are not only having their wedding there as well but with the referral we received complimentary appetizers!
People thought the food was amazing too. It was truly a wonderful evening :)

Our Wedding Reception was absolutely beautiful because of the natural beauty of the Ball Room at the Refuge and due to the hard work of all the staff. We worked with Jami Price, the event coordinator on site. She was professional, prompt, and organized. She has years of experience at the Refuge, and as a result, she was able to forsee all the details that we needed to arrange prior to the event. She responded to my calls, emails, and questions within one day, if not a few hours! She managed the staff to make sure that everything from set-up to tear-down went smoothly. She was a calming and reassuring presence the day of the reception. All of the staff worked diligently throughout the night. The food and beverage manager, Joe, was also very professional and experienced. The Refuge also has partnerships with well-known vendors such as Buttercream cakes. The oak ceiling is so beautiful, you don't even need drapery! It will be a beautiful pleasurable experience!

The dance floor is too small and the DJ was cramped into a corner. DJ didn't get served food and he even asked to be served with the table in front of him which he had taken a plate for and we included him in the count. The bonuses is that they have a nice setting, a wireless microphone that covers the entire reception area for announcements and speeches, and the food was decent.

The Refuge and Susan did a wonderful job with all the details of my wedding. Susan was always very quick in responding to my questions and went out of her way to help the day go as smooth as possible. All of my guests have raved about the food being hot and delicious and that the atmosphere at the Refuge. The only issue we had was with the tables being cleared and we ended up with a lot of wasted drinks. What we paid was considerably lower than any other comperable venue and the value was incredible. I highly recommend this venue for other brides.

I had both the ceremony and the reception here and I loved it. This place is so rustic looking (which is what we wanted) but you can also doll it up to make it look like a fairy tale wedding. Susan is the onsite wedding planner and she is great. She has so many ideas and is very helpful. It can be difficult to get a hold of her at times but you need to remember that they have a wedding basically every weekend if not two or three. I would recommend this place to any one who wants an outdoor wedding and a close reception site. It's beautiful!!!

The Refuge Golf Club is the perfect place for a wedding. The scenery is amazing. They provide all the chairs and linens which was really helpful. You can also decorate any way you would like.
Susan, in charge of events, is SO helpful and lead us through everything we needed to do. We never once felt out of the circle on anything. Same thing goes for Joe.
There is a ton of room for your guests and even room to get ready in the basement.
The food is AWESOME and totally worth it. They keep the place semi-decorated all the time and when they had the lights out side and such, it added so much to the place.

I have recommended the Refuge to everyone I know thats getting married and will continue to do so.

Beautiful venue. Space & equipment for outdoor wedding. Offers some decorations with rental of space, others for rent on site (which is nice if you don't want to have to coordinate bringing your own glassware & mirrors for centerpieces). Good value for what you pay. Beautiful patio for spring/summer/fall weddings. Excellent food & polite help. Whole place is yours for the day, 10am on, including dressing room downstairs. All around great place.

We were very pleased with every area of service provided by the Refuge. Susan and Joe were very helpful. Our planning, rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, ceremony and reception were all pretty much flawless! They responded to every question and concern that we had. If something came up, they took care of it immediately.
The food was outstanding and HOT!!! Our guest raved about the facilities, the food and the service. The only thing I would have changed is asking them if we could have coffee service at the table. Even though the wedding was held on a very warm day, the guests liked their coffee!

The Refuge Golf Club is the place if you are getting married. We had both the ceremony and reception there. I am so glad we found it. The manager was so helpful. If we didn't have a dj, flowers, officiant, etc., she could help. She also helped a lot with the rehearsal. The price was also in our budget. We are a young couple with two kids so our money supply isn't there. We were able to have the dream wedding that we wanted without going into huge debt. I would recommend the Refuge to anyone. In fact, I have already done so.

The location and building are beautiful, I couldn't have asked for a better set up, they have a private bridal with lounge, changing area, and bathroom, and even though there are golfers there, they are kept very seperate from the wedding. It is also the most beautiful reception room I looked at and the open rafters look great in B&W photos.
I had several guests comment on how curteous/helpful the staff was throughout the reception, and they were very easy to work with while I was planning. I would recommend the Refuge to anyone planning a wedding.

We were married at the Refuge on 9/8/06. We looked at several venues and were having some difficulty as my dream wedding was more elegant, but my husband was looking for something more laid back. We had almost made up our mind to go with another venue and decided to drive by the Refuge on a whim. Am I glad we did! :) As soon as we laid eyes on the facility, we knew it was perfect for us. It was the perfect combination of rustic & "up north" for my husband, yet stylish & modern for me. People would later comment that it was very "us."

The grounds are gorgeous...we took a few golf carts out to some holes that have breathtaking views and my pictures turned out beautifully.

We had our ceremony as well as the reception right there, which I loved. I really wanted an outdoor fall wedding, and they have an awesome location for that. Since they also have a large covered patio, we had a back-up plan in case of inclement weather. It was chilly the day of my wedding, but no rain fell, so the 10 minute outdoor ceremony went off without a hitch! :)

The reception room was decorated beautifully, and the lit candles on the tables, low lighting & open rafters in the room gave our evening dinner a very dramatic and elegant feel. Very classy. Exactly what I wanted! People still rave about the food from my wedding. It was A-MA-ZING. The steak, chicken & pasta were all to die for. Parents loved that the kids' meals came out first to satify hungry bellies. ;) We had an open bar, so our guests had a great time! The wait staff was awesome and we especially loved Curly, our bartender.

Joe was great to work with, and he even hooked the groomsmen up with golf on the morning of our wedding. My husband now golfs in the league there. :)

The coordinator that we had is no longer there, and she did leave a bit to be desired as far as follow-up is concerned. But all in all, our wedding day was absolutely perfect, and I would recommend the Refuge to anyone!
