We had our ceremony and reception at The Shores of Turtle Creek in Spring Grove IL. We could not have picked a more beautiful venue. Cheryl the Event Planner was so helpful and flexible as we were going thru the process of planning our wedding. Her staff was so helpful and they did a perfect job of following my one place setting for the rest of the 115 guests and setting up the centerpieces. They even added some appropriate things from the famous, "Fun Room". We have received many compliments from our guests stating that they thought that everything was perfect! Cheryl is now a part of our family!

I can confidently recommend Cheryl at The Shores of Turtle Creek for your wedding venue!!

We could not have been more pleased with how our wedding turned out! I am so happy we chose The Shores of Turtle Creek for our venue! Cheryl and her staff were amazing made us feel right at home from the first time we met them. The caterer, planners, and florists Cheryl recommended and we ended up using were all wonderful professional people and they all took special care in making our day perfect. I wouldn't consider having any celebration anywhere else! Thank you all for your hard work!

A stunning location for our reception! The home is all wood interior with a large stone fireplace just out front of the bar. Amazing land for photos, excellent staff, and is a family run business as well. The location wowed our guests and provided a gorgeous backdrop for all of our indoor and outdoor photos. Definitely recommended!!

5 stars is not enough for The Shores of Turtle Creek. Most weddings that I have been to in the Midwest took place in a hotel reception hall that was not very unique, had sub-par food and a cheesy DJ. For the most part, that is what is available and affordable in this area. NOT TRUE ANYMORE!

Turtle Creek was unique, elegant and affordable. Our guests were blown away by the venue, the food and the staff. Turtle creeks reception lodge is truly one of a kind (check out their website and go visit). The staff and the owners (Cheryl and George) were personable, fun, knowledgeable, and professional. In fact, Cheryl and George's best quality is that they are, for a lack of a better word, accommodating. They helped us every step of the way. Our food that was prepared by Chef Tim and his kitchen staff was out of this world. To quote one of our quests after seeing the venue and eating Chef Tim's cuisine, "... this is the best F#@*ing wedding we have ever been to".

Thanks to The Shores of Turtle Creek, Cheryl, George, Chef Tim and the helpful staff, our wedding reception was a dream come true.

We had an absolutely terrific wedding day, however the parts of the day that we enjoyed most and that our guests commented on (i.e. DJ, décor, and ceremony officiant) were of no thanks to the management at The Shores of Turtle Creek. At first, we enjoyed the relaxed personalities of the banquet manager and head caterer. In time we learned that relaxed meant unorganized an incommunicative. We were told months before our wedding about a variety of improvement projects that would be done to the property. Only some of said projects were completed (after we inquired about their progress) and weren't even started until one week before our date which left us feeling uneasy. We were told that we were late on payments but didn't receive a written invoice until two weeks before the wedding. The food and drink service was sub par. They provided only 2 bartenders for 200 guests, re-opened the bar late after the dinner hour break, ran out of some of the food, and did not serve the dessert as we had previously discussed. The lines for food and drinks were way too long (10-30 min) because of their poor planning. The table linens we had chosen were not available because they were ordered just one week before the wedding. I would caution anyone choosing The Shores of Turtle Creek for their wedding or event not because of the venue space but because of the venue management. Get all information in writing, be clear about your requests, ask questions, and don't hesitate to take the lead because chances are they won't do any of the above.

I Love the Schores of Turtle Creek !! I just had my reception there few weeks ago and I still get complements from my guest about this place . When I started looking for a venue all I saw is the traditional banquet hall and that's not what I was looking for . The first time I saw this venue , I was amazed how beatiful it is . I knew this is the perfect place for my reception . Then I meet the owners Scheril and George . They been great from day one , always there to anwser my questions , concerns and had a great advice . They made the process of planing a weeding very easy and stress free. The venue on my wedding day was just how I wanted !! Beautiful !! The staff was wonderful all night . If you looking for a unique venue with amazing people to work with this place is perfect for you !! Thank you Scheril and George for making our day very special .

The venue was truely unique and amazing. Cheryl and the staff were very easy to work with and flexible. It was a beautiful place for an outdoor ceremony and the reception lodge was equally as perfect for a naturally elegant wedding. All I heard all night was, "Where did you find this place?"

Cheryl and the rest of the staff at The Shores of Turtle Creek provided us with the most amazing venue to have our wedding and reception. The expansive grounds, beautiful exterior and amazing interior provided us with the ideal location. They worked with us every step of the way to make sure that our wedding looked exactly how we wanted it to. They were very accommodating with all of our odd requests and were extremely adaptable to all of the random situations that occurred that were outside of their control (like the city cutting their phone line while doing road repair the day before the ceremony). For anyone looking to get away from Chicago for their event and looking for an awesome place to bring the look and feel of an outdoors wedding to an indoor location, this is the place to be.
