We were married and had our reception at the Shores of Turtle Creek on July 3. George, Jenny & all of the other employees were absolutely fantastic to make sure the day went perfect. Sometimes when you plan for so long it is hard to see exactly how everything is going to come together, but on that day there was nothing more perfect. My husband Mike & I knew right away with the atmosphere and beautiful landscape this was the right venue for our Rustic Fourth of July Weekend wedding. We are so grateful for Shores of Turtle Creek for a breathtaking wedding we will never forget.

The Shores of Turtle Creek is not only a beautiful venue, but the owners and staff are nothing short of amazing. You get a lot of bang for your buck, with options on event location (indoor/outdoor, upstairs/downstairs), recommendations on local vendors, competitive pricing, a beautiful backdrop/scenery, and best of all: a closet full of left over wedding/event supplies you can take and use for your event for FREE!!

Aside from their overall value and professionalism, I have a personal appreciation for this venue. 3 weeks before my wedding, the owner/operator passed away. She was not just someone I wrote checks to; she was incredibly helpful in the planning process, gave me suggestions on how to make my wedding budget-friendly, and more importantly, she was a breath of fresh air. So funny, so carefree, so loving, so helpful... It was a sad loss not only for my husband and I, but also for the rest of the staff.

We were the first wedding since her passing. I think she was there in spirit that night because everything went perfectly. Her husband stepped in to make sure we had everything we needed, the staff were fun and accommodating, and you can tell they all really love working there.

Without any hesitation I would recommend the Shores of Turtle Creek. Incredible venue. You won't be disappointed.

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!!

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 .
