We hosted our wedding reception at Shores of Turtle Creek, and had a very positive experience. The venue inside is incredibly beautiful with a rustic charm. Outside, the grounds are very natural and incredibly pretty. There were many places, both inside and out, that were perfect for photos. We eloped a few weeks before our reception, so we did not have our ceremony at the space. Because we did not need the full day rental of the space, Anna worked with us so that we only paid for the portion of time that we were actually using the venue. We were very appreciative that our personal circumstances were taken into account and that she was so willing to accommodate our situation. Shores of Turtle Creek offers many materials with which we could build centerpieces and decorations, which saved us money on items for which we might not otherwise have use. Anna was accommodating with our requests and quick to answer emails with questions as they arose while we were planning our event. Our only issue was a small communication problem. There were a few times that we made decisions (about linens, decor, etc.) that it seemed were not noted or written down. We would be asked the same question several weeks later when we believed the decision was already made and done. In the end, all our choices and requests were fulfilled beautifully; the issue did make me nervous at times, though, that we may have to scramble or make a change. Overall, our experience was incredibly positive. The venue was beautiful, the staff were all kind and accommodating, and our reception went off without a hitch. We received many compliments on our choice of venue and our guests were all very happy.

This venue was just what we were looking for. Indoor and outdoor options, with a beautiful nature background. Their prices are more reasonable, and flexible than the 5 of the other places we had checked out. This was our first stop, and after checking out the other places, we came back. The top three items on our list for a venue was pricing, nature, and quality.

The Lodge, where you can have both the ceremony and receptions had a wonderful warm feeling when you walk in. There's a nice stone fireplace in the middle of the building, and as you walk further in, you'll notice huge windows around the main floor, which shows off the beautiful back nature backdrop.

The staff is very friendly and knows the venue very well, and can help you with your vision of both the ceremony, if you have one there, and the reception. Anna, is super friendly, and responds to your question through email really fast, which she prefers doing, but will answer your phone calls just as fast.

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!!

If you are looking for the perfect, peaceful, beautiful venue for your wedding you must check out The Shores of Turtle Creek. The grounds are awesome, the staff is exceptional. The food was wonderful. My daughter got married yesterday, all I wanted for her was the perfect day as we all do. The day was beautiful and PERFECT. From the time you drive up til the time you drive away there is a calm....I enjoyed going to Turtle Creek just for the peaceful atmosphere. We had a wedding of 90 we were able to have it outside, and the reception was indoors. Thank you Turtle Creek for an amazing day for my daughter and her new husband. I feel blessed to have met all of you! Check out the website. That is how I found it...
