  • We had snow for our fall wedding but we would not change a thing! The Cromaine Lodge was very warm and inviting with the gold chivari chairs, cream linens and the real wood burning fireplaces going. As much as we had our hearts set on getting married lakeside, having it inside the Cromaine offered an intimate ceremony that we did not expect and ended up being better. The staff was easy to work with, flexible, and they made sure the whole night went smoothly. We also booked the lodging at Friendship and Sunshine. The rooms were clean and cozy and offered a convenient place for our wedding party and close friends to hang their hat for the night.
