Lesner Hall & Sun­set Deck Dear Alexis & Brit­tany, Thank you so much for the won­der­ful job you and your staff did for Edward and Katie’s rehearsal din­ner. The evening was just per­fect from loca­tion, room set up, table dec­o­ra­tions, and food. The staff was also very help­ful. We also had an extra bonus since one of our friends brought the cou­ple by boat. All of the...

Water­side Deck Dear Brit­tany, We just want to say thank you for all you did for Emma’s wed­ding. I can­not imag­ine that event with­out all your advice and effort.

My two favorite Lesner moments are: every so often,...

Water­side Deck We had a wed­ding rehearsal din­ner at The Lesner Inn in Feb­ru­ary 2017 and I can’t say enough great things about it. Cayleen was won­der­ful to work with. We are not from the area and she made it so easy to plan this event. The decor was beau­ti­ful and the food was deli­cious. The bar­tender and staff did a great job. It was a won­der­ful expe­ri­ence and a great...

Katie & Ryan Sparks

Water­side Deck Brit­tany Thank you so much for all your help dur­ing our wed­ding process. The Lesner was our top choice and we couldn’t be more thrilled with how every­thing came out. You were accom­mo­dat­ing to our bud­get, help­ful, humor­ous, and atten­tive (like when you remem­bered the cheese on my eggs). Have a great new year!

Lesner Hall & Sun­set Deck From the minute we vis­ited the Lesner Inn, we know it would be the per­fect venue for our Octo­ber wed­ding. We wanted some­thing that was able to be out­side, but didn’t rely on a “Plan B” option for bad weather. The Lesner’s upper deck was a fan­tas­tic choice — our cer­e­mony took place right as the sun went down and couldn’t have pro­vided a bet­ter...

    ENTIRE VENUE

    Working with Lindsey and the Lesner Inn was great! I planned the majority of my wedding from out of town and Lindsey could not have been more patient with my constant emails. The venue looked beautiful at the reception and my guests loved the views and the food. The crab cakes were everyone’s favorite. Thank you so much to the Lesner Inn team and & Lindsey for such a beautiful wedding!

    I could NOT be happier with the service from Lesner Inn. Our coordinator Liz was SO helpful each time we met with her and had questions. The ceremony and receptions spaces were absolutely beautiful. If I had to do it all over again I wouldn’t change a thing and I would recommend this venue to anyone!
